Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0

24 11 2009

I have started a how-to document guide on WSS. The intention is to help site administrators by providing a step-by-step guide.

Up to date, I have provided how to change site theme and how to insert company banner.

I remember I set up WSS server long time ago, but I did not immediately start building the site. The reason was because I could not imagine how to design the sites, although I know what information I want to share on the site. Months passed by, and a new colleague came to join our company. She started to show me what can be done to the site, how to design the site, how to create custom list, how to modify custom list view, and so forth. I began to understand that WSS can be flexible, and with that it is powerful. To my colleague, I thank you 🙂

This step-by-step guide is an ongoing project for me. Hopefully by sharing this, it will be beneficial for site administrators newbies. ENJOY 🙂

Subnet Calculation

15 11 2009

This topic works hand in hand with IPv4.

Subnet consists of 32bits in binary form, and usually written in dot-decimal notation (eg. 255.255.255.0)

Sample Calculation #1

Prefix

/24

 

What does it mean in binary?

Starting from left most side, there are 24 ones, as shown below

11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000

 

How it is written in dot-decimal?

 

11111111 . 11111111 . 11111111 . 00000000
2^7 + 2^6 + 2^5 + 2^4 + 2^3 + 2^2 + 2^1 + 2^0

= 128 + 64 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1

= 255

           
255 . 255 . 255 . 0

What is the total range?

2^( Default bits 32 – prefix 24 )

= 2^8

= 256

 

For the total range, how many hosts can it have? <total range> – 2

256 – 2

= 254

Sample Calculation #2

 

Prefix

/20

 

What does it mean in binary?

Starting from left most side, there are 20 ones, as shown below

11111111.11111111.11110000.00000000

 

How it is written in dot-decimal?

 

11111111 . 11111111 . 11110000 . 00000000

 

 

 

 

2^7 + 2^6 + 2^5 + 2^4

= 128 + 64 + 32 + 16

= 240

 

 

255 . 255 . 240 . 0

What is the total range?

2^( Default bits 32 – prefix 20)

= 2^12

= 4096

 

For the total range, how many hosts can it have? <total range> – 2

4096 – 2

= 4094

OneNote 2010 (Technical Preview)

14 11 2009

I found a new feature in OneNote 2010 which is FANTASTIC!! It is called “dock to desktop”, where you can dock your OneNote to one side of your screen. And the rest of the screen can be your workspace. Whatever window you open will be displayed in workspace and it will not overlap on your OneNote. It’s like having a workspace on your table with your scratchpad at the side, ready for you to jot down little tidbits of information 🙂
