It's been a long time in coming, but I finally put together a mail server Step-by-Step guide.  There are a lot of screen shots so the the guide is split into 3 parts.  Here you go. February 15, 2004
This week I have a new article titled: 100 Generations CD-R Test.  Here's a snippet:
"The premise of this article is simple: To burn 100 generations of a CD and then compare the 100th generation copy with the original CD to see if the data is the same or if there are any differences.  Now, I don't mean making 100 copies of the same CD; that would be pointless.  I'm talking about making a copy of a copy of a copy, 100 times.  In other words, take an CD (original) then copy it making "gen 1".  Then copy "gen 1"  which gives you "gen 2".  Then copy "gen 2" which gives you "gen 3".   Do this until you get to "gen 100".  So you see, "gen 100" is a copy of "gen 99" which is a copy of "gen 98"...... all the way back to the original CD.  You get the point."

I spent the past few weeks playing with upgrading our forums.  Check them out and let me know if you have any problems with them.  The forums now open in a new browser window.

You can access the forums from the links on this site or by: forums.dslwebserver.com

This week I have a Step-by-Step about installing and configuring ZoneAlarm firewall on your webserver.  With all the crazy people on the Internet, you should definitely have this very important piece of software installed on your server in addition to a hardware DSL/Cable router.  That way you have hardware and software protection against hackers and viruses.  Since the guide is kinda long, I broke it into 2 pages.
