You can now log onto the Fluffshack using your Facebook account!
When you do this, it instantly creates a profile on Jemimus.net that is bound to your Facebook account.
When you leave comments on posts, you can have that comment feed back into your Facebook news feed!
What else does the Fluffshack need to support? I see mybloglog all over the place, so perhaps that would be good. Once Myspace launches their own Friend connect system, I will incorperate that too!
Also, if more interesting Google Friend connect (GFC) or Facebook connect widgets appear, I will probably add more. I also need to work on supporting generic Opensocial (even though GFC gives a kinda support for it already on the site)

Does a good job of going over the Warcraft II expansion plot, though it was noticeable they changes a few details here and there to go with the retcon of World of Warcraft in regards to the Dreanor of Warcraft II.
I think its a shame we still do not conclusively know what happens to Turalyon and Allaria, but I suppose this gives Blizzard free lease to reuse these characters with a future expansion. It would have been nice to have seen Khadgar run into the Naaru before the end, but oh well, might be fore a later book.

This remains still one of the most in-depth and complete collections of material on Windows server. Many of the basic concepts and design of Active Directory, basic TCP/IP technologies, and much more, are discussed in great technical detail, and it remains an extremely valuable reference source for me, even for Windows 2003, and I bet for 2008 also.
I also have the 2003 resource kit, but they cover different aspects of the sever product. I don’t know if there is a technical reference from MS on Windows server that equals the ground covers in this kit.
I recently through out many of my 2000′ books, but these will remain on the shelf for a long time.

This is basically a bundled collection of books that are also available separately. It contains some of the most in-depth books available on Windows server, including the very excellent “Windows Internals 4th edition” by Mark Mark Russinovich. Also the Troubleshooting and Performance guide are extremely good and in-depth.
This collection goes a lot farther than just about anything a Windows professional will have come across in MS course material. It is meant mostly for enterprise administrators as many of the skills needed to use the knowledge of these books lend themselves particularly well the large-scale enterprise environment.
Just in – the most ridiculous (and, yes, awesome) holiday card ever. First Round Capital, quoting James Brown, says “Any problem in the world can be solved by dancing” and then promptly shows video clips of each and every one of their portfolio companies…dancing. The whole thing is inspired by WhereTheHellIsMatt, they say. It’s not pretty. But I sure am smiling.
The YieldX guys, at 1:48, look like they are about to be hit by a car. Because they are dancing in the middle of the street in San Mateo.
