External = "The world"

So one of the points that Amy Babinchak made in AU at the SMB security summit was that each time there was a rule in ISA that said “let the world in” you needed to stop and ask yourself why.  RDP from THE WORLD may not be a wise move.  You can easily …even without […]

A little bit of 529′s

So let’s say you want to be alerted when someone does a password attempt on your system.  Go into the health monitor, copy the Account Lockout alert service and edit it to look for event 529 in the event logs.  Adjust the Actions to not only log to the system but to email you when […]

http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,139492-c,internetexplorer/article.html  $521 million http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/329766_msfteolas31.html $60 to $70 a share for the shareholders in dividends http://www.theinquirer.net/en/inquirer/news/2006/08/23/microsoft-and-autodesk-lose-product-activation-patent-suit $158 million How many billions of dollars have been spent that provided no benefit, protected no clients, gave no needed features? http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/cases/f227500/227585.htm First, the California Movants argue that extension of the Final Judgment is necessary to “pry open” the OEM channel to non-Microsoft […]

There’s no secpol in Vista Home Premium.. so now what?

And you find out …it’s not there.. so now what? […]

Got a 0x80072efd

The AT&T edge sync’d and then it didn’t… and I was getting a 0x80072efd error… Googled.. and it was due to this:  http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=994379&SiteID=17  What I realized is that for one reason or another my PDA picked up the office Proxy Server settings.  Once I removed the proxy setting it was able to sync over the […]
