New Year – New Blog Theme


2016 was a pretty busy year for me, both personally and professionally.

On the personal side:

  • Tim's motorcycleWe had our first grandkid
  • Custom leather work kicked into high gear
  • Started another blog:
  • More remodeling work on the house
  • Bicycled 810 km (503 miles)
  • Bought my first motorcycle and started riding to work in December

On the professional side:

  • SharePoint & Project Server consume 90% of my time
  • Traveled to Seattle in November for another Microsoft MVP Summit
  • 133,000 visitors hit the blog
  • Attended 79 Microsoft PGI meetings in the last 12 months
  • Finished my 9th and final year as a Microsoft MVP


At the end of 2016, during some blog maintenance, things went awry and the blog was offline for a good chunk of time. While I had the hood up I found out that there are 539 blog posts on the website, which was a bit surprising.

Now is back and (hopefully) better than ever. The blog engine and plug-ins have all been upgraded, additional spam filtering has been installed, and a new mobile-friendly theme has been installed.


As we enter the 14th year of this blog, new SMB-specific content has faded with the demise of Windows Small Business Server, but be on the lookout for:

  • PowerShell
  • Azure
  • DevOps
  • Hyper-V
  • Microsoft news and downloads
  • SharePoint Server
  • Project Server
  • Active Directory
  • Group Policy
  • OS X, iOS and some Linux
  • Training opportunities & resources
  • and the planned return of the Have U Rebooted Yet cartoon

Thanks for tuning in!

CSI: Hyper-V – Episode 1

On the next CSI: Hyper-V – Real Estate

The I.T. team travels through NET TIME to save an innocent virtual machine.

Well, what if you could just listen to this podcast to your phone ringing in a couple of minutes each? The answer is that you may be able to have a better connection while listening, and possibly hear the market louder as your listening begins. This is a great idea for anyone listening to what’s on the market, but if you have problems with using your phone as a listening station, you may be better off simply letting the audio out to one of your own speakers instead. The best solution is a simple app called “Chorus.” Then going to houses for sale osgoode you’d think youd do better. You don’t have to put your phone down (you may already have, if you use your mobile phone) and just listen in. You may be able to enjoy this sound for a few minutes while you watch a web video; or just listen to it until you’re done.


(No, I don’t know why I do this stuff. It just pops in my head…)

Downloads – Have U Rebooted Yet Wallpaper

I had fun making comic 052 and decided to include wallpapers of panels 1 & 2. These are 4:3 aspect ratio (since that’s the way the comic is made).
