RESOURCES

"Resources" to me are the software tools I use to do my job or to perform other functions I find useful or entertaining.

Operating Systems - the usual suspects

I use almost every mainstream OS available today. Operating systems and bundled apps are in order of used most often.

(At the moment, my favorite is Windows 7, x64.)
(All of my home servers are currently 2008 R2.)
I also usually have a command prompt or terminal window open.
Ping, traceroute, telnet, lookupd, and grep are your friends.

With those out of the way, I'll move onto more interesting stuff.

Very first thing I need on a new (Windows) workstation:
RSAT, formerly the
MS Adminpak
Because remote desktops in RSAT has "opportunities":
I have 5 IM accounts:
I still have 5 IM accounts - and although Trilian runs on Windows and my Droid, it does not run on my Mac...
(Trillian runs on Mac now!)

formerly Fire
