    Happy 25th Birthday Windows [1.0] !

    [Informational] Windows 3.11 was my first Operating System I used way back in 1995 as a kid. Windows to me then was this really cool looking application with nice buttons to point, click, and execute applications through file manager, check my e-mail with Eudora and wait in great anticipation as my favourite star-field stimulation screensaver comes on.

    Daylight Saving Apple

    Ok, this is nothing really related to Configmgr but perhaps we can have a good geek laugh over it. Maybe Apple can take a leaf or two on how to apply a patch properly. ;) Hey, that's what Configmgr does best aint? People who stepped in late for work today in the UK and Europe were probably Apple iPhone4 users who had placed their almighty trust in just 1 alarm clock - the iPhone 4. You'll be forgiven if you...
