Whaddya know how to Use of the /3GB switch in Exchange Server 2003 on a Windows Server 2003-based system

A friend of mine is asking on how to use the /3GB parameters to fully utilize the memory management of your Windows Server 2003 to support Exchange Server 2003. It's been a while since my last setup and configuration of Exchange Server 2003 (maybe because I am managing Exchange Server 2007, by the way SP1 for Exchange Server 2007 is out).

When I need to get some information related to Microsoft Exchange Server, I always search it first through http://support.microsoft.com website. Yes not Google search. You will get 95% relevant information than searching to Google. Well it's a Microsoft product anyway.

Here's the information I've found on how you can configure your Windows Server 2003 to add the /3GB and /USERVA=3030 parameters.

"After you have installed Windows Server 2003, modify the Boot.ini file, and then add the /3GB and the /USERVA=3030 parameters to the startup line" (2009, Support.Microsoft.com)
For example:
[Boot Loader]
Timeout=30
Default=multi(0)disk(0)r…

Whaddya want to implement all Wireless connectivity to your network without the use of Ethernet (physical RJ-45)?

If you are looking for wireless solution, here's one for you. I personally not using it yet but I really like their implementation design and might apply this to work.

The product is "Xirrus Wi-Fi Array integrates 4, 8, 12, 16 or 24 802.11abg+n coupled to a high-gain directional antenna system into a single device along with an onboard multi-gigabit switch, WI-FI controller, firewall, dedicated Wi-Fi threat sensor, and an embedded spectrum analyzer to provide mmore than enough bandwidth, security and control to replace switched Ethernet to the desktop as the primary network connection - providing more coverage, bandwidth, and throughput in the industry on a per device and system basis resulting in 75% fewer devices, power, cabling, switch ports, and installation time than competitive offerings."

Whaddya know why Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) is stopped working?

Wonder why?

You are using your Microsoft Remote Desktop and after installing the service pack 3 (SP3) for your windows operating system it's stopped working. Well, for security reason Microsoft assumed you don't need this service in your workstation and only administrator use it. Some companies are already using Terminal Servers for telecommute or teleworkers to connect to the company resources.
How to fix this problem? This is not a problem, you just need to go back to manage your add-ons and enable the Microsoft RDP Client Control again. Here's how to enable your RDP. In your Microsoft IE browser, click on Tools, Internet Options.
In Internet Options, click on Programs tab.
Click Manage add-ons.
In Manage Add-ons, scroll down till you see the Microsoft RDP Client Control (redist), select it.
In Settings, select Enable then click OK to execute changes.
That's all.For additional questions, please post it here or visit PCLiveSupport.com community.Thank you EM @ KING.NET

My Blog URL Address - BLOG.KING.NET

This post is not one of the HOW TO article but a small feedback from my readers.

Some of my readers suggested to change my blog URL address to http://blog.king.net to simplify and easy to remember. I agree with this suggestion and it make sense, though it's been years already since I've started using http://my.king.net as my blog URL address.

Well, I guess it can be resolve by creating another URL forwarding using http://blog.king.net to http://my.king.net to accomodate the request. There you go, you can now use http://blog.king.net URL address. I've checked it today and it is now resolving.

Your suggestions and feedback is always welcome here.

New York post apologises over "racist" President Barack Obama cartoon.

Just in case you haven't seen the cartoon image. Here's a copy courtesy by Telegraph.co.uk website and also the article.
"The New York Post has apologised to those offended by an editorial cartoon that critics said was racist because it likened President Barak Obama to a chimpanzee." (2009, Telegraph.co.uk)

In my humble opinion, I've seen worst but this is just a wrong timing or maybe a good timing to create a media buzz. It's up to you to judge.

Update:
I've searched the Internet to see other controversial New York Post Cartoons and I found this one from BlackPlanet.com website titled "NY Post's Sean Delona's Most Offensive Cartoons".

Whaddya know how to maximize your deduction for your business needs.

Year 2009 is to keep more cash for your business needs, to maintain your business operations and stay in business. I've read this article from CNN today titled "2009: Keep more cash!" I've got some useful informations for me to consider when filing my tax returns. Though just like other entrepreneurs out there, I have many questions to ask.

Profit from losses:
This is getting interesting when I continue to read the article. You can actually recoup some of the money by executing what's called a net operating loss (NOL) carryback. This is the first time I've learned about this specific tax code.

"Here's how the carryback works. Say you lost $1 million in 2008 after turning a $500,000 profit in each of the previous two years. You carry the loss backward by having your accountant amend your 2007 tax return to offset the entire profit for that year. You would then be due a refund on any federal taxes you paid on that profit - and state taxes in roughly a thi…

Security Tips of the day: Phishing. Whaddya know how to protect yourself against phishing?

This is a definition of Phishing I've got from wikipedia.org.

"In the field of computer security, phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular sexual web sites (YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, Windows Live Messenger), auction sites (eBay), online banks (Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase), online payment processors (PayPal), or IT Administrators (Yahoo, ISPs, corporate) are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting. Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail or instant messaging, and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one. Even when using server authentication, it may require skill to detect that the website is fake. Phishing is an example of social engineering techniques used to fool us…

How did you spend your Valentine's Day with your special one or family?

Well it's all planned when we (my family) find out that Jollibee's in Queens New York will open on February 14, 2009. We decided to spend our Valentine's Day driving from Fairfax, Virginia to Queens, New York so we can taste (once again) ChickenJoy, Palabok, Spaghetti, etc. from our very own Filipino foodchain.

This is just the summary of our schedule last weekend:
- 5 hours driving from Fairfax, Virginia to Queens, New York
- 4 hours waiting in line. We chat to our kababayan while waiting.
- 40 minutes getting our foods.
- 5 hours going back to Fairfax, Virginia

That's how we spend our heart day, with a lot of foods from our child hood taste back in Manila, Philippines. I'm proud to be a Filipino. By the way, visit RandomPage.com (RP) for more pictures from the restaurant.This article sponsors by:
