MCSE Training Kit - Upgrading to Microsoft Windows 2000

This seriously techno book is aimed at experienced Windows NT system administrators who are upgrading a Windows NT 4.0 network to Windows 2000 and/or those wishing to attain Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer status with Windows 2000.

It is not appropriate for those who are installing Windows 2000 for the first time or have little or no experience with Windows NT. Prerequisites for reading the book include experience in administering a Windows NT network, thorough knowledge of TCP/IP and DHCP, and experience managing user accounts in Windows NT.

The book is organised like a text book with chapters split into smaller individual lessons with a review at the end. Objectives are clearly explained at the beginning of each lesson and an approximate learning time is given.

The book provides an outline of the Windows 2000 platform, a complete network installation and upgrade guide, a guide to configuring DNS Services, implementing and administering Active Directory Services (a new Windows 2000 feature), managing desktop environments, managing software, managing file resources, configuring remote access, supporting DHCP and WINS, managing disks, disaster protection and using remote installation services. A CD-ROM containing the entire book and supplementary materials is included. If you have the appropriate skills and are embarking on a Windows 2000 network upgrade, you will find what you need here with a little effort. Perhaps they could have made the book a little more interesting to work with, given the dry subject matter, but then again - how much fun can configuring DHCP be?

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
