  3. Hyper-V Server 2008 SP2 install

    Virtualisation is great. We have 25 odd Virtual Machines across 4 physical servers for development and testing. Want a new server just pull it up from the library and you have a new server in the time it takes to move the virtual hard drive files.

  4. A Real Blog

    I have never blogged before and am thinking of blogging about about some of the IT problems or challanges I face at work.

    I follow a SBS blog and she made a post about how the blog helps her document to herself problems she faces so i thought I may follow suit.

    You may not need what I am going to document and find its contents a bit dry but I hope you enjoy it and hopefully some of it may be of use.

    Some of the IT blogs I follow.

  8. Well.

    Deep inside the playstuff root admin forum there was a lovely thread highlighting what needed to be done for the vB4 upgrade to take place. I don't know what anyone else thought because normally I get questioned about something after I do it rather than before (Cue mac screaming about SVN). Mine was the post-thanks addition which should really be default in vBulletin - seriously Internet Brands hire that guy! It beats the reputation system to shit.

    Unfortunately maybe upgrading the ...
