      Multiple proposals can be created at each peer to ensure that at least one of these proposals will match a remote proposal. The proposals can also be prioritized in the policy statement by listing the ones that you want to use from first to last.

      During the IKE negotiation this policy looks for another IKE policy that is the same on both peers. One peer sends all of its policies to the remote peer and in turn the remote peer attempts to find the match for it.

  • dcpromo places the Active Directory® database and log files under  %Windir%

      DCPromo installs and removes the Active Directory Domain Services. There are alot of .exe parameters. I would recommend looking these up and understanding these parameters if you plan to use this tool.

    Add Sticky Note
  • if the Active Directory database is hosted outside of any of the folders above,  then the hosting volume or volumes must only contain additional free space equal  to at least 10% of the current database size or 250 MB, whichever is  greater. Finally, the free space on the volume that hosts the log files must be  at least 50 MB.

This article will show how to determine what info to document, how to gather the info, and how to present the info.
Also could be a very good starting resource if your walking into a network that has nothing documented.

  • take technical information about a given network and present it to someone less  familiar with that network in a way that allows the person to know what you  know.
    • chris king
      chris king on Feb 26, 09

      This can be very helpful. Being able to show someone that is unfamiliar with the network certain things or to have them go troubleshoot something could be very aggravating for you and the person if it is not documented the right way or not documented at all. Imagine trying to troubleshoot something when you have no clue as to where the problem may be.

  • what information would you want to know about it? That is what you should  document for your network.

      chris king on Feb 26, 09

      Not only the information that you want to know, but the information that someone else may need to know if something was to happen.

  • set the priorities for your documentation. Decide what information you need to  record right away and what information can wait until later.

This has some good information about different screens. Certain screens can affect the brightness and resolution. How weird didnt know that.

  • Permanently installed screens can save time and money when you’ll be using your  home theatre on a regular basis
  • often chosen for a home theatre that does double duty as a living room, bedroom  or den.
  • A motorized screen is extremely convenient to use. It can be integrated with a  master control system, or operated with its own remote or wall switch from  wherever needed.

      Take in to consideration being motorized also means its more likely to break.

This covers some of the most important key elements when choosing a projector such as brightness, resolution, contrast ratio, and weight.

  • The more light you have in a room when using the projector, the more lumens  you'll need.
  • greater than 1200 lumens. Most professional presenters tend to stay along the  lines of 1800 lumens and greater. You should also realize that larger images  need more lumens to project clear images
  • 800 x 600 is usually sufficient for standard presentations

Very informative. 1080p would be great with blu-ray. If you dont have blu-ray consider the alternatives. There are also good comments at the bottom of the page.

  • 720p projectors have dropped well below $1,500 (some are below $1,000), and they  continue to deliver outstanding picture quality for the money.
  • for many buyers on a budget the ideal solution is still the 720p projector.
  • the 1080p projectors will give you almost nothing in image quality that the 720p  projectors don't already give you

This is a very informative step by step tool. It provides benefits by reducing maintenance, management, and attack surface. It is also a compilation of very useful commands that allows local and remote server installs.

    • A Server Core installation provides these benefits in  three ways:



      •  By reducing the software maintenance required  (less updates, etc…)   
      •  By reducing the management required   
      •  By reducing the attack surface

Very scary stuff. CAN TANSMIT ITSELF via USB!!! Microsoft has a patch that protects against Ethernet side of it. Could Be used to completely highjack a computer.

  • Downadup, Conficker, or Kido
  • The very sophisticated worm exploits multiple secure flaws in Microsoft’s  Windows OS’s.  It injects itself into services.exe, a common system  process.  It creates a new DLL file in Windows  system folder with a random five letter name.  It makes registry edits  referencing this DLL as a service, so it’s automatically  run on restart.

Explains alot about the new features that Server 2008 has. Some of these include bitlocker, hyper-v, server manager, server core, and RODC to name a few.

  • Server Core, which provides a lightweight version of the server aimed at  specific workloads, and Hyper-V, Microsoft's hypervisor-based virtualization  technology.
  • a more easily serviceable system,
