LAN Manager Was A Dog Straight Out Of The Box

Post dateNovember 21st, 2015 by SuperAdministrator! in The Web | No Comments »

lanmOne of the most confusing issues concerning Windows NT has been the degree of networking that NT will include and the role of LAN Manager in future NT-based networks. Microsoft itself has obscured the facts on occasion, referring to the network services in Windows NT as peer-to-peer when, in reality, Windows NT will include the same kind of file-server software that has traditionally been provided in LAN Manager.

That server software will be limited to serving single-domain networks of DOS, Windows and OS/2 workstations. Networks can have any number of servers, and you can use the software on a peer-to-peer or a client/server basis. In other words, you can run the server and share your local hard disk, and run the client and access other servers, or you can simply dedicate a few …

Training IT Staff Is Key To Your Company’s Success

Post dateNovember 10th, 2015 by SuperAdministrator! in The Web | No Comments »

titsSoftware development, maintenance, operations and support is tough. One of the most important ways you can increase your organization’s chance of success at the software game is to have competent staff with a robust skill set.

Classroom training, via traditional colleges and universities or through professional training schools, is often an effective way for people to learn new skills, but it isn’t the only way. Since no single approach to training and education is perfect for everyone, you want to foster an environment which is flexible enough to meet the needs of individual students.

Mentoring, learning teams, bag-lunch training, self-paced training and computer-based training (CBT) can all be used to supplement your organization’s training efforts.

Many organizations make the mistake of sending someone to a training course with the expectation they will internalize …

Nodevision Offered So Much Hope, So Little Delivery

Post dateNovember 10th, 2015 by SuperAdministrator! in The Web | No Comments »

nvosmNetwork managers who want to pinpoint changes in network workstation configurations may find a potential solution in Fresh Technology Co.’s new Windows-based node-administration program, NodeVision 1.10, provided Fresh can make some needed improvements to the package.

NodeVision 1.10 is an admirable effort to provide network managers with a tool that spans a variety of network operating systems and equipment. But in our tests the package suffered from compatibility flaws when we configured it with some network operating systems.

NodeVision supports Novell Inc.’s NetWare, Banyan Systems Inc.’s VINES and Microsoft Corp.’s LAN Manager, along with TCP/IP hosts. It also works with a variety of other network-management systems, such as Novell’s NetWare Management Services, as well as some concentrators and uninterruptible power systems.

We used NodeVision’s extensive data collection tools to gather data on …

ERWin Was A Fantastic Early MySQL Tool

Post dateNovember 2nd, 2015 by SuperAdministrator! in The Web | No Comments »

erwinwafeLogicWorks Inc.’s ERwin/SQL is a Windows-based tool that lets database designers graphically create and maintain database structures. Database designs can be easily manipulated and are presented in a clear, flexible manner. However, ERwin/SQL’s complete absence of help and referential documentation made the product more difficult to learn and use than it should have been.

Rather than trying to be all database products to all users, LogicWorks’ ERwin/SQL 2.0 focuses on the all-important design of the database.

A heavy price can be paid for incorrectly designing a database — even if applications and data are correct, performance can be compromised. ERwin/SQL 2.0, which was released two weeks ago for $1,495, makes the process much smoother by allowing users to concentrate on the design of the database rather than on the Structured Query Language (SQL)

Do Wrinkle Creams Really Work?

Post dateNovember 1st, 2015 by SuperAdministrator! in Your Health | No Comments »

dwcrwDo even the best wrinkle creams out there have good results? Yes, they do actually work. There are many anti wrinkle cream brands out there but you have to find out which one will actually work. Anti wrinkle creams are on the cheap side and can show very positive results. There are some that look like they don’t work but actually they do work just that the effects can’t be seen by the human eye.

What’s inside those creams? The best wrinkle creams contain ingredients such as antioxidants, avobenzone, alpha hydroxyl acids, l-ascorbic acid, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and finally retinol. Each of those ingredients play a part in repairing skin most especially the human face. Scientists pick which ingredients are most compatible with one another so that they can both work …

Server Or Workstation – Pick Your LAN Backup Antidote

Post dateOctober 28th, 2015 by SuperAdministrator! in The Web | No Comments »

svrorwsDespite claims by various backup-system vendors about which approach to network backup is better — workstation- or server-based — tests of both implementations show that the server-based solution has some glaring disadvantages. However, because there’s only one top-notch workstation-based implementation currently available, network administrators are in a catch-22 when it comes to making a good buying decision.

Server-based vs. workstation-based network backup: The holy war over which method is better has gone on for quite some time. After a year of testing virtually all of the available contenders in each of these categories, we are better able to put the advantages and disadvantages of these two methods in perspective.

Now, with Palindrome Corp.’s introduction of its NetWare Loadable Module (NLM), there is at least one vendor with a foot on both sides. …

Pressing The Press Is Best

Under Chairman Jack Welch, GE has shunned owning businesses that aren’t No. 1 or 2 in their markets. That’s a tack Reed wants to follow.

“If we can’t be a leader in a field, then it probably won’t be a strategic priority,” says Brian Kardon, senior VP-marketing and chief marketing officer at Reed Elsevier Business Information.

Being a leader got a lot easier for the company last month, when Reed Elsevier PLC’s Cahners Publishing Co. completed its $447 million purchase of the Chilton Business Group, Radnor, Pa. After the merger, both companies were combined to form Reed Elsevier Business Information.

“The Chilton publications helped us get stronger where we already had strength,” Mr. Kardon says.

Reed Elsevier Business Information currently has 131 publications, 4,000 employees and more than 7 million subscribers, making it …
