NT 4.0 MCSEs gets to keep certification

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAccording to rumours all over the place, wingeeks certified as MCSE on NT 4.0 will keep their certifications forever. Instead of dumping this MCSE certification on new years day 2002, it will be renamed "MCSE on Windows NT 4.0" and be valid for the holders lifetime. Other MCSE certifications will be renamed accordingly; "MCSE on Windows 2000" and so on.

Seems Bill and Steve finally crumpled from the pressure and separated the customers technology skills from its own upgrade and marketing plans.

Keep an eye on Microsoft Training & Services for the official news. If it ever happens.

Lord of the Rings

  View Printable Version 

December 19 this year will see the premiere of the film version of Tolkiens Lord Of The Rings. While I doubt the athmosphere of the book will survive the Hollywood stereotyping, you on the other hand, can surf over to Apple and watch the theatrical trailer. There's a multitude of versions to see, depending on the fatness of your internet pipe.

Security
From Yahoo! Finance: "It's not just about cell phones anymore. At least, that's the message coming from wireless giant Nokia. Over the past three years, Nokia Internet Communications, a U.S.-based division of the Finnish company, has grown from a pipsqueak in security to a force to be reckoned with. According to tech researcher IDC, Nokia is quickly grabbing market share in the exploding market for firewall/VPN appliances."

"UNIFIED INTERFACE.
What exactly does Nokia sell? Put simply, it designs computers equipped with a specially designed, hard-to-hack version of the open-source BSD operating system, a branch of the Unix family that also includes Linux. These machines are specially optimized to run software from leading security vendors, including firewalls from market leader Check Point (NasdaqNM:CHKP), intrusion-detection systems from Internet Security Systems (NasdaqNM:ISSX), and antivirus software from MacAfee. The only major pieces that Nokia itself contributes are VPN-management software and a management console that makes it easier for security engineers to monitor multiple products in a single, unified interface."
