24/09/2005: SBS2000/20003 - Problems encountered using ADMT to migrate computer accounts during an SBS2000 -> SBS2003 migration - some computers developed a random RCP failure - firewalls were turned off, server could browse to them no problem, though the computer account was created in the new domain. The fix was to delete the account and try again - then it would succeed. Some computers needed to be attemtped again to get it to work. Flakey, and then some.

09/09/2005: Windows Vista - Been playing with Windows Vista (beta) - loaded up IE 7 to see if the tabbed browsing could match Mozilla's, no chance - Dr Watson error on the 3rd (simple text + graphics) page it visited. Start as you mean to go on...

08/09/2005: Windows SBS 2003 - Good to see that a standard install a) turns off web publishing, and b) includes a robots.txt file that disallows spidering of the entire site. Good idea, just a shame Microsoft still left the default admin scripts there.

08/09/2005: It Starts - A few years late, but a blog of computing stuff that has annoyed/impressed me or caught my attention some how....
