Vista support training

We were trained in vista support today. I have home premium on my home machine so I’m already comforable with it. Still the structured course was good. I would have liked to have done more practical exercises thought.


Hp learning class

March 30, 2007

HP does free classes in a whole bunch of different subjects. Currently I’m going through the backup classes. I know a good bit about backing up but I want to flesh it out and get more comfortable with it. Usually I was carrying on someone elses backup policy. How do I pick a solution for a new business?

Finished lesson one, lesson two.

Update: Finished the other four lessons and got a certificate of hp for it. Interesting. I enjoyed reading around the topic too.

 one of the main points of trying to become a max-level Wizard on a MUD was to be allowed to create your own worlds and monsters. Talking to the game execs

Why cant you make monsters and areas any more? Wonder if they will start letting people do this on xbox live and sony home? That would be very cool.
