Piracy is the natural result of a market that is being poorly utilized.  If people are pirating your product, it means that you're missing potential sales - Is that the fault of the pirate or of you the producer of that good? http://www.neowin.net/news/editorial-how-piracy-changed-my-life

Adding Computers to AD by Command Line

Just finished a new write-up.  This one is on adding multiple computers to Active Directory by command line.  Recently at my job we needed to pre-populate AD with about 700 computer accounts.  This utility, native to  windows, saved a considerable amount of time.

Free Open Ghost (FOG) at PICC '12

I'll be presenting on Free Open Ghost (FOG) at PICC '12 on Saturday May 12th with Todd Macdonald.  I'll be talking about the technical side of implementing FOG and Todd is talking about training users to take the role of level 1 technicians using FOG.

  There should be some other interesting talks there as well.

Join the Kerbal Space program!

Join the Kerbal Space program at http://kerbalspaceprogram.com/ This video encouraged me enough to download it. (If you work at it, you CAN actually get to the moon!) When in doubt.. Add more Rockets!

If This Then That

I've mentioned this site before in tweets, but thought it worth mentioning again. http://ifttt.com/ Automates many online tasks between sites like Facebook/dropbox and more. Currently I have it grabbing items from my Feedburner http://feeds.feedburner.com/selfcommit/jNiN and adding them to my Facebook Status. Pretty cool!

The Deleted City

I can't believe that at one point, Geocities sold to Yahoo for 3.5BILLION.
Not a few million, BILLIONS of dollars.

Today it no longer exists.
Interesting video on capturing some of the "magic" from the web's first "Deleted City":
