I want an RSS feed and I don’t think I’m the only one

On a couple of listserves, WSUS, and Focus on MS, I’ve seen some folks talk about how their first indication that Office 2003 sp2 was when their workstations popped up with a “you have patches to install” icon. Hands down the Security folks have the SDcubed +C nailed.. Secure by Design, Secure by Default, Secure […]

One of the things that I said needed fixing in SBA 2006 now is fixed… Suckage.  SBA needed to…had to… pull over ALL transactions from Quickbooks.  The original version did not.  They’ve just relased the update to allow the software to be 100% pull of transactions from Quickbooks to SBA.

Windows Sharepoint Services sp2 released

Bill reminds us that Windows Sharepoint Services sp2 has been released. Now, keep in mind that ANY service pack for our parts is perfectly fine to put on a SBS box, but I personally am not at home and I won’t be testing this yet.  We do have some special customizations for Sharepoint, so if […]

Geek train trip status report

Met a lovely Austrailian couple on their way to see their daughter in Canada. Met Ben’s mother [fellow MVP] Met a husband and wife from the states tonight, and each time I’m sure bored them with geek talk of “Patch Tuesday.  But that’s six folks that now know that second Tuesday of the month they […]
