Dell shipping with an AMD chip?

Who knows, but Slashdot mentioned that it just might happen, according to this article on The Inquirer, who quoted this article on ComputerWorld.com.I’m often asked about x64, and whether I recommend Intel vs. AMD chips in the space. The reality is, I don’t have enough knowledge to recommend one over the other. I couldn’t defend…


Another access based enumeration mention…..

WS2003 Service Pack 1 brings with it all sorts of goodies. I’ll try and mention many of the AD ones over the next few weeks, but one I can’t help but mention sooner rather than later is access based enumeration.Rather than digging in to the feature, let’s instead start with a scenario. Assume you have…

The chicken has flown the coop

(I’m not one for announcements, but this one is too awesome to pass up)Ah yes, it’s about that time. Server 2003 SP1 has hit the web. You can get it at all of the usual locations.Of particular interest is the expanded 64bit support, which I’m wildly a fan of. x64 is proving to be awesome,…


Some homepage skins to play with….

Same old poster, new fancy home

It seems that the cat is out of the bag on blogs.technet.com. I, along with many of my counterparts, have made the move to this new platform, and I’m not looking back. Those of you using links to blogs.msdn.com, well those links should work for a while, but I’d ask you update to the blogs.technet.com…


Time for a new adventure

I figured, it’s been a while, it’s time for a change. 🙂 As has been mentioned over on the EEC blog, I’ve switched departments. I’ve had a great time in PSS CPR, but am now trying things from the other side of the house. I’m now an engineer for the Enterprise Engineering Center, a part…

Blech, I was wrong about something I said

Some time ago I posted on constructed attributes. There was a snafu in an item I posted (and by snafu I mean mistake).I said that constructed attributes are only returned in base searches. This is incorrect in the general case. This is true for some constructed attributes (like tokenGroups) but not true for many others,…

Man, I wish we had this feature……

Sometimes I just thirst for a feature someone else has. In talking with an MVP on the phone tonight we got to talking about ESE, and chatted a bit about the new ECC feature introduced in Exchange 2003 SP1 to help with -1018’s. Info on it is here if you’re interested. I sure do wish…
