Exchange Server 2003 Goes RTM

This article was originally posted via Squarespace on a domain name I no longer utilize. I am consolidating all of my ramblings and drabble here.

With working the new job and all, I’ve hardly had a chance to see what’s new in the world. One thing that I wasn’t expecting was this: Microsoft has announced that Exchange Server 2003 has been Released to Manufacturing (RTM). Coolness! If you haven’t checked it out, you really should. I thought that the jump from 5.5 to 2000 was worthwhile, but the changes in OWA alone make 2003 required.

The big question is… Will Microsoft be shipping this as part of their Action Pack for small IT businesses? I assume they will. This is important to me, as I’m a subscriber.

Daycare

I really don’t like my mornings anymore. It’s not that they’re bad in general, it’s just one small portion that I don’t care for.

I drop Carter off at his daycare. The problem is, he’s figured out exactly what this means. When Dad comes in and wakes him up, he’s extremely happy. He loves to run around and play, even while Dad is changing him. Then… it happens.

He suddenly realizes that he has to go do daycare today. It happens at different times. Sometimes it’s when I’m putting his shoes on, other times it’s right before I drop him off with Julie in the room. No matter what, though, it never fails. His eyes well up with tears, he starts to cuddle. He may be thinking “What did I do wrong? Am I in trouble? Why is he leaving me here?”

Not in trouble, kid. Dad just has to go to work.

Right. YOU try explaining that to a 2 year old.

Twenty Years of DNS

According to this article on Wired, DNS was first successfully tested 20 years ago today. Pretty impressive, considering that with all of the changes we’ve seen on the Internet, it continues to be a reliable, if not completely secure, way of mapping domain names to IP addresses.

Hmm. I was 5 years old at the time.
