If you have the joy of administrating a Microsoft Exchange Mail Server and need a nifty tool for analyzing i can highly recommend the Microsoft Exchange Best Practices Analyzer
The analyzer will help you find sources of instability and performance problems and will assist you in configuring general policies for eMail usage.
Great tool and until today, never heard of it. Sometimes i just wish Microsoft would include tools like these directly into their products – or at least with the occasional service packs.
3 more days to the Linux event in Chemnitz.
The site features a pretty cool schedule planner.
Here is my schedule 🙂
I have currently found the IBM Redbook archive und stumbled upon the TCP/IP tutorial and technical Overview. The book features more than 1000 Pages with practically anything you need to know about the basics of TCP/IP.
This is a lot of material but i highly reccomend it for anyone interestetd in network communication technology.

Before installing any operating system on your SSD i recommend testing it. Id rather keep a set of SD cards with me than overriting the original xandros os.
You can download the ISO version and create a USB version from the live cd or just download a customized USB-ready version. The file is 560 Megs and available through bt.
eeeXubuntu_USB Version on Pirate Bay
Still downloading, test reports will follow 🙂
Just gave the Eee PC a few testing runs with backtrack booting from a usb pen drive. Just download the full usb version and follow the installation instructions to create a bootable distro.
The backtrack distro scales pretty fine to the Eee PC resolution but requires a manual interface reset so the monitoring works correctly.
Simply associate the wireless devices by using the following commands:
airmon-ng stop ath0
airmon-ng start wifi0
Note that i will not post any instructions on how to crack encrypted wireless networks or such. If network administration is your profession then take the time to learn and explore with bt3 on your own equiptment and use your knowledge to block off script kiddie pranksters or use up-to-date encryption.
My next goal is to boot bt3 from a 1GB sd card and store it with my Eee PC in case i need it. The current bootable version should fit but regarding prices for flash memory, a 2 GB SD card surely wont hurt your wallet.
Btw. the Eee PC boot menu can be accessed by pressing Escape during the POST screen.
Backtrack 3 will boot from an SD card as well, installation procedure is the same .
