by @ Wednesday, February 19th, 2014. Filed under tech

I just saw my first report from a Microsoft RAP for GPO… The official name is "RAP as a Service for Group Policy" I must say… what a load of crap or should I say cRAP. I hope the company didn’t pay much for it.   I don’t know if it is a flawed concept/scripts/analysis […]

AdFind is back in the garage… FINALLY!

by @ Sunday, January 12th, 2014. Filed under tech

I haven’t gotten AdFind/AdMod converted over to Visual Studio yet so I am performing another update using CodeGear C++ Builder (formerly Borland C++ Builder). I have been having a lot of difficulty finding free time to work on joeware stuff the last 18 or so months since I moved to a new role in my […]

New Server for the joeware Facility

by @ Sunday, October 6th, 2013. Filed under tech

I am starting to look around for servers to replace Super Fast Virtual Mofo (SFVM) which hosts all of my virtual machines. I haven’t looked seriously at hardware in many years, actually since I built SFVM in 2007. As you may have noticed by how quiet it has been around here I have been exceptionally […]

"Extending" Password Expiration for Specific Active Directory Accounts

by @ Thursday, September 5th, 2013. Filed under tech

I recall sharing how to extend an Active Directory user’s password expiration previously somewhere, probably on the ActiveDir Org list but perhaps even in this blog… I don’t remember exactly where. This topic popped up in my head this morning because I saw via twitter (@joewaredotnet) that someone released a tool called "AD Password Extender" […]
