In My Own Words:
A resident of Honolulu since 1986,I spent 17 years and 9 months in the U.S. Navy as an Operations Specialist. Techsploring is my vocation and avocation. The first computer I owned was an Altair 8080 B. The industry has come a long way since those halcyon days. I highly enjoy reading technically-oriented publications, programming, and exploring new technologies. Whatever I am exploring, I like to … Read more

Bodum Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press&hellip by Bodum
6 of 7 people found the following review helpful
I received this item as a birthday gift from a good friend. I have been lusting after a good thermal press-pot for months. The construction of this unit is first rate. Zero coffee grounds escape through the screen into the pot. It maintains that "lava hot" temperature that we here in Hula Town enjoy for quite awhile. Used properly, this press-pot lets you unlock the full flavor of your java. Cleanup is a breeze! Dump the grounds out, rinse the pot with cold water and dry in the dishrack. Much less effort than cleaning the electric drip pot! The price may seem steep, but it is worth every penny. And due to the stainless steel construction - - there are no safety issues that might… Read more
Microsoft® Exchange 2000 Server Administrator's Po&hellip by William R. Stanek
Clear. Concise. Encyclopedic in scope. This "Pocket" book is designed to serve as a reference checklist for common and not so common procedural tasks. Utilizing this reference, most folk will be able to get Exchange up and running smoothly in minimum time. As with most of his other "Pocket" references, Mr. Stanek does a very thorough job of documenting tasks in a highly organized manner. You will get more out of this book in a few days than you will combing the newsgroups for months. I keep this book in my ready bag at all times so as to have it always at hand. This is a book you will find yourself referring to on a daily basis. With Amazon dropping the price by 30%, it is a deal that… Read more
Linux for Windows  NT/2000 Administrators: The Sec&hellip by Mark Minasi
Finally! A book that uses my WinNT/Win2K knowledge as a baseline, then builds my education in Linux from that. This is a very well-written (and sorely needed) book for those Windows folks who desire to learn Linux without feeling totally confused and out of synch. In no time at all, Mr. Minasi will show you that Linux is not the demon that you have been led to believe. I now understand that "daemon (Linux) = service (WINNT/WIN2K)". Wow! Removes the confusion factor entirely! This book also comes with the Mandrake version of Linux. If your time is at a premium as a WinNT/Win2K Administrator, this is the definitive book for getting you up to (Linux) speed, Pronto!
