  • Blog Post: Legends of Windows Home Server -- Checkin Garfield

    It was a logn time ago, so, I guess, it's ok to tell this story at last... Well, everybody knows what "checkin" is, right?

  • Blog Post: Economy crisis 101

    Pardon for another non-technical post, but I thought it may be interesting.

  • Blog Post: I almost got back to the weight I had when I came to United States....

    Just a few days ago I tried, and I fit perfectly into the suite, in which I came into the United States from Russia in now so old 1996 year. Since that I fattened a lot on Cola, pizzas and other dubious food substitutes from 195 pounds to almost 255 pounds last October (2007). In October vacation...
  • Blog Post: I am really thinking about reviving this blog...

    ...but not the way it was before. My Russian blog on Technet is flooded with readers, and I am wondering if I could bring some of that value to English-speaking audience.

  • Blog Post: 5 worst problems of home-grade routers

    During our crusade for Home Server and Beta programs we faced a multitude of home network configurations. We learned a lot, and some of that we did not like. In fact, that's our beta-participants who did not like that, it's just they did not know what it is until we did investigations on the failing...
  • Blog Post: Nine years ago I failed on interview… and still proud of it.

    This was before Microsoft. I decide to move from my current company and – among other thing – got a phone interview with a Chicago company specialized in what’s called today CMS – Content Management System. In mid-nineties it was called “Document Management”, but that’s not important. The guy, who interviewed...
  • Blog Post: I am Annoyed with Spam …and I don’t get it, why is it still a problem.

    I am Annoyed with Spam …and I don’t get it, why is it still a problem. If you follow my blogs, then you may remember an article, where I mentioned that today approach to computer security is extensive and not leading anywhere in the end.

  • Blog Post: Last week my manager tried to break my code...

    He was in China, and with five our Shanghai developers worked on breaking my code for ~17 hours non-stop. As he says, they've started around 6AM and finished around 2AM (apparently, there was a lunch in-between). For all that effort they've found only 1 (One!) bug. Nice! On unrelated subject, a racoon...
  • Blog Post: GUI design - what does this button do?

    Recently, when going up in an elevator, I was puzzled by this picture. What do you think "Low Oil" button at the very top should do? ---------------------- A hint (white on white, select to see) It's not really a button. It's just some design genius made an indicator light identical to buttons...
  • Blog Post: Starting a new blog...

    After the move to another group, my old blog devoted to BizTalk Server seems like a wrong place to conitue on a new topic.
