LAN Building Much Easier Than It Used To Be

lbmeMost people approach the installation of a local area network (LAN) with the same enthusiasm they reserve for IRS audits and root canals. First, there’s all that confusing terminology: Ethernet, 10BaseT, hub, router, and so on. Then there’s the labor: opening the computers to install special cards, running cables all over the place, messing with the operating system to enable its networking capabilities. Pretty daunting stuff.

But no more. Today, new networking solutions and improvements to existing technologies have taken the ability to connect computers out of the hands of brainy geeks and into yours. You might think that setting up a LAN requires a lot of time and expertise, and you’d be right–if the year were 1995. But thanks to a new

Personal Info Managers – Still Effective, After All This Time

AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE, HARDLY anyone works from 9 to 5 anymore. The business day begins earlier, ends later, and runs into weekends, holidays, anniversaries, and birthdays.

However, regardless of the reasons for filing, any missed tax return will be recorded by the Internal Revenue System. As soon as it continues to accumulate, they will send a notice to this individual or even file a case for not paying the taxes.

Hence, if you are one of those individuals having this kind of tax …

Talking Scalability

In the deployment of a web content management system, scalability can be anything from a nonissue to a major concern.

On most corporate intranets, where as many as 1,000 simultaneous hits are rare, a single Web server running a content management application can easily serve the entire intranet. In such a setting, the capacity of the Web content management application is generally a much smaller concern than its stability.

Scalability is a primary concern, however, when a firm deploys content management on a Web site, particularly an e-commerce site. I have seen several cases where sites either crashed completely or selectively lost content because of problems with their content management systems.

There are several steps site managers can take to ensure that systems
