    iPods Make You A Loser

    Nah, I agree completely, and it's cool. I'm going to have to look up the stuff you were mentioning though, as I've never heard of it...or at least I don't recall hearing of it.

    iPods Make You A Loser

    Curious on this one.. Have to talked to the race officials on this? I would think a case could be made for it being a special circumstance. I don't know though. I've only raced up to 10 miles (so far, I'm planning on a marathon at some point), and have usually relied on gels and sports...

    iPods Make You A Loser

    In both cases, I think the disqualification is justified. I'm not by any means an elite runner, but I completely understand the first disqualification. Who knows what it was laced with? It could have legitimately been just water or Gatorade or something. But maybe not. On the iPod, it's a...

    Is Gmail Failing?

    I use Gmail on a daily basis, both via IMAP and web interface, and although have had occasional issues with the web interface, none with IMAP.

    Is there a decent LogMeIn Free alternative out there?

    I suspect most of them are doing that. That's what has me fuming with LogMeIn Free right now. I used to be able to add users to my account, and control what computers they could access. Now they want $300 a year for that capability. Too bad the company has no budget, I could probably get...

    Funny Picture Of The Day

    Looks almost like that could be a Michigan plate.. Depending on the jurisdiction, you'd be surprised at how bored some officers get, depending on what they're doing. The problem is, they need to kill time, but can't leave their post. I figure if he's playing solitaire, he's either bored...

    My Cert Plan (please advise)

    Admittedly, I'd probably go MCITP Server then MCITP Enterprise. But that's just me. I'm not yet at the point where I'm working towards either though..

    Domain admins across a forest trust

    Same here. Although, I found it easier for me to just create my own account in the other domain (or use the Administrator account) rather than going through all that. One of these days I'll at least get them all in the same forrest, although I'd love to get 'em on the same tree. That's a...

    Domain admins across a forest trust

    I've done some more reading, I don't think it's possible. The only way it looks like its possible is if it's the same forest, not just a trust.

    Domain admins across a forest trust

    What functional level is your domain at? EDIT: Quoting my 70-290 book in reference to global groups: That's for global groups. Here's a quick quote on Universal groups: EDIT 2: That might be the issue that I'm actually having with mine (similar situation, two domains, separate...

    Domain admins across a forest trust

    EDITED: I don't know what I'm talking about yet.. Re-reading about groups in my 70-290 book..

    Disadvantage of Windows Firewall?

    Well, as a tech, I haven't seen it, but then again, I've also been at the same client for the past few years, and don't see what some of the others see. If I remember right, didn't they get purchased? I'm imagining that was the turning point.. I don't recommend ZA anyway any more.. Was...

    Disadvantage of Windows Firewall?

    Curious: When did ZoneAlarm become shit? I haven't used it in quite some time, but I know at one point, even here, it was highly recommended..

    New (2) Laptops w Vista 32, upgrading to 64

    You're slightly mistaken. My HP laptop came with Vista 64 OEM discs.. Also 32 bit.. Granted, it is Vista Business, but it works for me..

    consultants: how do you charge your customers?

    TechieSooner is right on. The company I work for generally specializes in a variety of products from specific vendors. For example, Symantec is big in the corporate world for their AV. Therefore, we actually have several guys who are very specific with their knowledge of Symantec AV products...
