November 2008

I am using the Thanksgiving holiday as a perfect time to upgrade our internal servers. I had already installed 2008 at our main site, and the backup site. Since everything was already running I could do it from home using our IntelliAdmin Remote Control. Within a few hours I got all the files in place, […]


I lied. This is not the 5 sins of Windows 7, but the 5 sins of Vista undone. When Vista was first released I wrote an article titled “The 5 Sins of Vista” Each Sin was a bug or issue with Vista that I thought needed to be fixed. Lets look at all 5 of […]


It has been a busy week for email. Received another good question yesterday: Saw an article you wrote on IntelliAdmin and wanted to ask a follow-up. I have a set of 12 local Windows XP machines and I’d like them all to use the same set of Favorites (without users being able to add or […]

I found a plugin that fixes the feed issue. I have tested it in Google Reader, Outlook, IE, and FireFox….My FireFox still shows the truncated feeds…but I think this is because they are cached. If you are still having problems reading the full feed try to clear your cache and reload.

It seems that I posted the wrong links for the reader feeds…here are the correct ones: RSS2: ATOM: Now, the feed does show full articles in a reader client like Outlook….but for IE and firefox it still is truncating them. I am trying to see if there is a way around this…but for […]


I think Microsoft may be playing a joke on all of us with this one. I just got an email that looks like this: Show your PC pride Are you one of the millions of people around the world who have proudly declared “I’m a PC”? With the new I’m a PC Store at, […]


I recently received an email: Dear Steve, I was going through google search and I came across your script. Please, how do I reset the network users home page to a particular website and make it permanent such that they would not change it? Thanks. Normally the answer would be to use group policy. But […]
