    Ex 07: Messages Delayed

    Straight and to the point: messages to a domain are delayed. In the outbound queue the error shows that the "Primary Target responded 421 4.2.1 Unable to Connect".... Note that responded part, seems to verify comms work. HOWEVER I cannot do a "telnet their.ip.here 25"- connect failed...

    Keeping yourself logged in.

    Ahhh OK. That works, too. I can't put mine to sleep because then I can't access it with LogMeIn if I ever needed to.

    If it's at work: nobody cares. Universally, people in any industry anywhere think IT people do nothing... They don't care about your time. It's a hobby, right? LOL I remember a story here once a "friend of a friend" called up asking for computer help. The response was "Sure- your husband is a...

    Keeping yourself logged in.

    Just at work? I'm in that habit at home. Honestly, it's a good habit :D Because you can't bypass the Windows signon without having to reboot the machine. And when you reboot the machine, the HD gets un-mounted and then it's encrypted again, requiring a password. Else if you leave it logged on...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    Hmmm... Odd... T-Mobile was one of the first people that had this kind of thing, I know they have it. But if that's not an option then that's out. Kindof a bummer. I do not miss landlines at all. Most people I talk to rarely use theirs, and they "keep it for DSL" or something (little do...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    You don't understand. You can live in an area with 0 coverage, and then get this little "hotspot" box from T-Mobile... And it gives you cellular signal inside your house. Kindof like a wifi hotspot, but for cell signal. What it does is it sends the voice and data out through the internet...

    How Does your Company deal with Client Emails

    Could be, do you just move the ORIGINAL email there then? Because for one issue you might have a dozen replies... You don't want to count a dozen emails on one issue. But yea, I've always liked that Public Folder thing... Previous company I was at didn't like that method because it wasn't...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    Perhaps a repeater from the Cell Carrier would be a good investment? They might even be able to get that for FREE if they complain how bad the signal is and that they might be looking at going to another company... Generally what those do is use your internet connection to create a cellular...

    How Does your Company deal with Client Emails

    Well, keep in mind ease of use for the users as well... Probably want something transparent to them. Unless you use some sort of contact manager and make them put notes IE: "5/10/10, Sent Chris pricing on Weapon 11". I really have no idea though, never done anything like this short of the...

    House networked with single CAT5E cable

    First thing: do they really need phones? Most people just use cells nowadays. And if they HAVE to have phones- maybe they don't need it in every room. Maybe a VoIP solution would work. As for the patch panel... you COULD just crimp ends onto them and plug them directly into the switches if...

    Keeping yourself logged in.

    QFT. Now, on my work machine, or any other computer that isn't mine... I log out. But yea, on my personal laptop: it's encrypted and I lock the OS when I'm not using it... So I leave that stuff enabled and use the Remember Me features. You could do the same thing in XP if you ran under...

    AKM Antivirus 2010 Pro

    QFT I also trust my experience as well... MBam will nuke practically anything. And with ease. I don't understand the whole "remotely" part of it though. Install MBam, update, scan, reboot: done. Should be removable remotely just fine. :D Yea... It kindof is a great example of how much...

    Windows Registry

    Even reading the quote you're trying to advocate against Windows isn't helping you. Again- the "application" is at fault here. There's nothing wrong with the registry. A few things: 1) UAC helped. Alot. Again, if an App needs to write to system-level places, UAC shows up. This has forced...

    Newegg

    That argument really doesn't work against Amazon. Amazon is huge AND does excellent. I think it has more to do with your leadership focusing on customers. When you focus on customers- you staff up (enough staff to handle your customers), and worry about keeping customers happy than the bucks...
