Been a while since I’ve even checked on this site…

Lots of changes for the work side of things.

We finally upgraded our Zimbra install – I’ve been thinking about writing up the process, but don’t know if it makes a difference now. We migrated hardware and upgraded to version 7 and since Zimbra is now at version 8, I’m not sure how relevant the information would be. I am hoping to get an upgrade to 8 done this summer though. Which will probably be pretty painless.

And we’re planning to migrate away from Apple’s Open Directory to Active Directory. I’m not sure how I feel about that… Given Apple’s obvious focus on everything “i“, I am pretty much done with anything related to their “server” line of software. But I haven’t heard many good things about M$ lately either. Maybe I’m traveling in the wrong circles. If someone out there can provide reassurance that AD is not the work of the devil, please do.

As before, I’ll try to record the process and progress for both of these projects on the off chance it provides useful information for someone else some day.

What It’s All About

May 13th, 2008 Comments off

So… a first post. A real first post.

I decided to start this blog for a few reasons. First, to document everything I’m doing at work in hopes that it can help someone else avoid the hours and hours of frustrating searches I had to go through to find the answers I needed.

The second reason is really a continuation of helping people – but instead of limiting it to my work-related projects, I’m going to try and offer up my thoughts on working with technology. Mind you, it won’t necessarily be the “right way” (as if there even is such a thing!), but it will be a tried and true method I use with positive results. I’m also thinking about opening things up and taking tech questions from people – either through email or a forum system. I haven’t quite decided yet, but when I do you’ll read about it here.

Finally…

I just needed another “me” project.

So, coming soon, I’ll be posting tech-related entries on a variety of topics. Some related to my job, some related to non-work tech stuff, possibly reviews of new stuff coming out. Really, at this point it’s all up in the air. But I do know where I want it all to land.

Welcome, and I hope if you’ve come here looking for answers I’m able to provide them, or at least point you in the right direction.
