So, yesterday I started deploying Windows 7 on my laptop. But just as I finished posting yesterday, I ran into some problems. Well, big problem actually.

Because I was lazy, … Continue reading ""Windows could not finish configuring the system"…. Argh! *update*"
So after reading Sanders excellent blogpost "Windows 7 Migration Checklist", I decided to ignore his advice. I'm an early adopter, so i'm just gonna do it and see where that gets me.

At the moment, most of my work on Active Directory and such only has to be fine tuned and that … Continue reading "Windows Deployment Services: A Real Ghostbuster Part 1"
Last Thursday I took the Prince2 Foundation exam and I passed. Yeah me! Now projects I take part in, will never fail (ahum)! 😉
So at Tech-Ed 2008 EMEA IT Pro, I heard very little about the next version of my favorite groupware solution: Exchange 14. Also searching the net, didn't come up with a lot of results.
