    Looking for a service similar to Dropbox

    I've deployed OwnCloud at a couple locations and I use it at home. We may roll this out in house in the next few months. OwnCloud is free and is pretty nice.

    God help me, I made the full transition to Apple..

    I installed FreeNAS on my spare PC and threw in some 5400 rpm drives. FreeNas has a feature to where you can share a drive as an Apple Share and Time Machine service sees it just like it would a Time Capsule device and sends all backups to it perfectly. Unless I check on it every now and then...

    Can a case be made for IT SysAdmin primary computer be macbook pro?

    I don't think I'd ever be able to get my manager to see the need for a Mac. I have one at home and I love it and everytime I use my Dell E6330 at work I really miss the gestures and etc. On my home Macbook Pro I have my bootcamp install virtualized in Parallels when I need any Windows app...

    Talk to me about Cisco UCS

    Hey guys. We are a Dell shop and that has been the case since before I worked here. We had some IBM x series here at one time and there and of course our i5 but 95% was Dell. Dell is having a lot of trouble. I'm concerned about how this will impact their research and dev processes moving...

    Scrollout F1

    One thing I forgot to mention was MailCleaner. Really cool product they have paid version and the free community version. We are looking at it too and it seems promising. Download the free community edition ISO if you want to give it a try sometime. Setup and running in five minutes...

    Scrollout F1

    I recently looked into F1 but I was put off by its lack of features in the GUI. It was too basic I felt. I looked at @SSP also but that was too robust. I settled on Endian using he SMTP proxy and I felt it was a good middle ground. As far as the spam training goes with F1 I can't say. I...

    Endian FW SMTP Proxy Help

    No one :( ? Well I'm working on tuning the spam settings but the quarantine mail still isn't being sent to me and that is an issue. Noticed that clam may not be working. I've sent in the EICAR test virus in many forms and clam never sees anything. Nothing in the logs and email makes it to...

    Endian FW SMTP Proxy Help

    Hey I've setup a new Endian box to perform smtp proxy services and nothing else to replace a our current spam filtering solution (hosted barracuda). According to MXtools my setup is correct. SMTP banner, MX and etc are all setup correctly for the EFW. This is the setup. Internet V Endian...

    Best cases for MPB 13in?

    What is the consensus on the best cases for MBP? I'm looking for the cases and not sleeves. Form fitting kinda stuff. I looked over the brands that are on the apple site and etc and there were a lot of bad reviews on speck and incase stuff so I don't know. Any opinions? Moshi any good?

    I Finally Did It

    I always do that for most tech purchases. Not that I really owe anything to you as far as reasoning as to why I did what I did, but Christmas was coming up and it was picture taking time for us. My wife is a photographer on the side and we have two relatives that probably won't make it to XMAS...

    Netflix Hit By Outage On Christmas Eve

    You are correct. The only problem I have with "cloud computing" is that the name has become a buzz word for upper management to use in meetings and this in turn bothers the admins and engineers turning the word "cloud computing" into an eye rolling affair. This is the problem I have with it...

    I Finally Did It

    Thanks for the replies everyone. A few days in and I absolutely love this laptop. I thought the 5400 rpm drive would kill performance but it hasn't. I'm still gonna grab me a nice SSD pretty soon to drop in it but in the meantime I'm not really hurting that much on it. After that I may...

    Meet Julie Larson-Green, The New Head of Windows

    "Boom.....Roasted" :) I'm still on the fence about win8. The one really cool thing is how the desktop/phone are now sharing the same ecosystem. The talks so far is that the next xbox will also run off a similar shared core. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    10GigE Ports on Dell Switches

    Funny story. We have some 5548s too and I bought some GBICs from Dell when I made the purchase for the switches. Come to find out I needed a couple more GBICs so I called up our sales rep and gave her the product number of the GBICs but she never could find the GBICs to sell me more. We went...

    Logging a network printer's queue or connections?

    If you share that printer out on a Windows PC you could then do logging. Not sure if you want to do that or not but that is one way.

    Windows Server 2012 Essentials has gone RTM and is live on TechNet

    I've seen Home Edition on server setups before too. Also see more than 4GB RAM on 32 bit Server OS that was home built for an office on more than one occasion. Ouch on the last part. Not done that myself but I've seen it too.

    Let me guess, you helped out the fine young chap that sent you that random email stating he only wanted to borrow some money so that he could afford legal fees to accept his inheritance? Of course he would repay you by giving a portion of said inheritance? Wow what a lucky day for you to have...

I too hate to hear buzzwords being thrown around but in this case being a public forum with people from all walks of life it seemed fitting. Whether we like it or not the term is...

    Let us talk wheather (cloud)
