    View the webcast from Jonathan by clicking through to our distributor’s site, O’Reilly.com. http://oreillynet.com/pub/e/1964 NOTE: The webcast has been archived from this morning’s presentation. What’s discussed in the Webcast Long ago when computers were introduced we were promised a world in which most of our most mundane tasks would be taken over by a computer. However, if you go into most organizations you will still see many business processes being done by people. Meanwhile the computer sits idly by on a desk showing weather updates. With SharePoint 2010 you are able to use not only the browser based out of the box Workflows but you can also use SharePoint Designer 2010 in order to edit those out of the box ones along with creating your own custom workflows. And as an added benefit Visio...

    New book: Windows Sysinternals Administrator’s Reference

    • 1 Comments
    Gang, Windows Sysinternals Administrator’s Reference , by Mark Russinovich and Aaron Margosis, is available! (Congratulations, guys!) In this post, first we’ll offer some words about the book from Mark (from his blog ), and then we’ll follow that with an excerpt from the book. Mark says: “ Aaron Margosis and I are thrilled to announce that the long awaited, and some say long overdue, official guide to the Sysinternals tools is now available ! I’ve always had the idea of writing a book on the tools in the back of my mind, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that Dave Solomon , my coauthor on Windows Internals , convinced me to pursue it.

His ideas aren't always popular (not that he cares), but they do stimulate discussion and imagination needed to drive software excellence. Get the unvarnished truth on how...
