How? Well, after months of work, this week we have
finally released our Brand New Sunbelt Software Website!
We have been testing for a few days and things are
running smoothly. You are invited to come over and have
a look at how our new home looks, we're really happy
with it. But if you find any errors, please send them to
The MAJOR new feature is our on-line Knowledge Base
where already many hundreds of technical questions
and solutions on NT and Third Party tools are available.
We are now working full blast to get it filled up with
thousands more technical solutions relating to Win NT
3-rd party tools and system management issues. Come
and check it out!
But we also have an on-line glossary of the most used
NT slang explained in an informal way, so if you are
confused with a concept you do not get, clear it up :-)
