Book Review – Freedom ™ by Daniel Suarez

August 4, 2011 // 2 Comments

Freedom ™ (the tm mark is important!) is the sequel to the last book I reviewed, Daemon, also by Daniel Suarez.  The story continues and accelerates from the cliff hanger.  I won’t give anything of the plot away.  This is a thriller.  IT and cyber security are mechanisms in [...]

The story of Daemon  is that a games development genius dies, but that doesn’t stop him from wreaking havoc on the world.  Before he dies, he uses the AI from his games to create a distributed network to enact his will. This book has what Zero Day didn’t: a hook, something to keep you [...]

Mastering Lync Server 2010 – Available for Pre-Order

I am not the person to approach if you have questions on Exchange Server or Lync Server.  But Nathan Winters is.  Nathan was an Exchange MVP until he “went blue” (had his firmware changed [some say upgraded] by Redmond) and has been doing large deployments of Exchange and OCS for [...]

One of the nice things about not having constant deadlines is that I can “chillax”.  I’ve been getting a lot of reading done on my Kindle/iPad combination.  And the latest book I’ve read is Zero Day, the debut novel by famous Windows insider guru Mark Russinovich. The book centres [...]

Nice Feedback is Soup for the Soul

I think I’ve mentioned before that writing a book is hard work.  To be honest, when you’re going through the 3rd and 4th edit, you sometimes start to wonder if it’s all worth it or not.  But then when you get positive feedback, sometimes by email or by Twitter, it can perk you up quite a [...]

Last year was pretty busy.  Not only did I write Mastering Hyper-V Deployment (with MVP Patrick Lownds helping), but that project was sandwiched by me writing a number of chapters for Mastering Windows 7 Deployment.  That Windows 7 book is due out somethime this month. If you browse onto the [...]

Mastering Hyper-V Deployment Book is Available Now

October 22, 2010 // 5 Comments

Amazon has started shipping the book that I wrote, with the help of Patrick Lownds MVP, Mastering Hyper-V Deployment. Contrary to belief, an author of a technical book is not given a truckload of copies of the book when it is done.  The contract actually says we get one copy.  And here is my copy [...]
