Again, I'm too lazy...

Ok, so what has been going on since the last post... Well, the project is going forward. Too much stuff going on at the same time since my team are migrating in all continents at the same time - a lot of coordination is going on! From management side the schedule shifts on a daily basis which makes it really hard to plan accordingly - but that's the way it is as everybody knows.

Besides that one of my best friends got married in May - Awesome wedding! They will be the host and hostess on my wedding. Oh! I might not have told you.... Yes, I'm getting married Aug 16th. And I'm looking forward to it!

Ok, I have to be honest - we have a wedding sharepoint site (thank you Thomas Bittner and Daniel Wessels!) and I have a MS project plan as well.... Jesper said: "you're such a geek! A Sharepoint site for your wedding!" (don't remember the exact words, but that was the gist of it). Well, what can I say - I'm a geek! As most people know already!

Some tech stuff - are 3rd party software really ready for a Server Core? It is an open question - and my experience is - not yet. Which will open the discussion about why... Correct? The reason why is because most of the companies still install antivirus on their domain controllers and the install package require a GUI, which means it is a big no-no. The same goes for printer installations (well, many cases). This will open up a sub-question, do you really need AV on your domain controllers? My answer is: depending on your security and network design - I know it is an open answer. But think about it and post a comment! :)

Long time since last post

Ok, I know there has been a long time since I blogged.... A lot have happened so let me summarise.

- My mate Mark Arnold have married Laura Hunter. And I was the bestman, well I tried at least... Since I couldn't attend the tour of Philly our mates bought a doll as my stand-in which now have its own blog! :)

- The Windows Server 2008 Security Resource Kit is released, I wrote a chapter in it.

- I've been to Redmond/Seattle to attend the MVP summit.

- Our wedding site is up :) Yes, I'm getting married in August!!!
