How To Prevent A Truly Dreadful Day
A posting on the NTSYSADMIN list last week prompted me to send
you this reminder. It's true for you, but also for your users:
"Thanks for this link - it has brightened a truly dreadful day.
I got up yesterday morning to find my laptop and a clients laptop
had both been stolen along with all my financial info. So make
sure you have a backup and if anyone hears of someone flogging
a Sony laptop with a cracked case and a wireless card in
the Scotland area let me know 'cos I need my data. - Mike"
PS, the site in question was:
The Difference between IHSSE and iHateSpam Gateway
The iHateSpam Server Edition only works on the Exchange
(2000 and 2003) servers. It has to be installed on these
machines. Some people though prefer to have the filtering done
on a separate gateway box, to offload that from the server.
This is an architectural choice; some sites simply do not allow
anything else to run on their Exchange servers. That's why
we developed the Gateway version, so that the filtering
process occurs off the Exchange Server.
And since a lot of people wanted a version for Exchange 5.5
we combined the Gateway with the 5.5 version. During the
install of the Gateway version, via the install wizard, you
have the option to get it running on a 5.5 machine, or with
a 5.5 machine, having the filtering done on a Gateway. But,
if you run Exchange 5.5 and you do not have a Gateway, the
install allows you to run everything on the 5.5 box.
Practically all the code of the Server version has been re-used for the Gateway, it's just a different implementation.
Hope this clarifies things a bit. Check it out over here:

This Is Big - FCC Blesses New Wireless Spectrum
You could call it the wireless equivalent of fiber-optics.
Speed? A whole movie in 10 seconds... Reason why I mention
this is that the technology is backed by MS and Cisco, and
MS is enhancing Windows so that the native wireless networking
service will be interesting for Wi-Fi network providers and
of course mobile users.
The Redmond initiative is called Wireless Provisioning Services.
It gives Wi-Fi network providers an integrated platform, so
they can manage/provision Wi-Fi hot spots. And if you run
XP on a laptop: seamless sign-up and secure wireless access,
with transparent roaming. I Like. Better yet, it's going to
be a free download for XP users in Q1, 2004. I Like More. The
whole thing runs of course on 2WK3. And Guess What? It's built
into W2K3 SP1 at no charge! I Like A Lot.
Oh, the outfit that designed this stuff is in Hawaii. Sounds
like a pretty cool place to work. Design hot wireless gear
and then go surf 5 minutes later. I Like Best!
