Functionality Differences between Microsoft Entourage 2004 and Microsoft Outlook 2001 for Mac

I originally posted this at http://www.318.com/TechJournal

Entourage 2004 has more options than Outlook 2001 but also does not communicate over MAPI but instead over WebDAV (OWA).

The Graphical User Interface (GUI) level changes are too numerous to review. A conversion from Outlook 2001 to Entourage 2004 requires retooling the workforce for the new application. Schedules, cached email addresses, signatures and other settings will be lost during the migration, but mail, contacts, calendars, to-do items and tasks should survive the migration.

Once common theme across the two is wasted resources. Outlook 2001 required OS 9 to run in OS X. Entourage 2004 requires Rosetta to run in OS X. Both waste a considerable amount of resources. However, both are the only supported clients for Microsoft Exchange for the Mac platform. One note about a possible Exchange 2007 upgrade is that you will loose your free CAL licensing for Entourage. If you read the EULA you no longer receive free Entourage licenses per CAL of Exchange 2007.

On the Road

On the Road: Vegas

I’m sure I’m gonna’ catch a lot of crap for this, but I can’t stand Vegas.  There are simply too many people there to get lost in a debaucherous trip.  Luckily most businesses there operate off the strip, but most conferences do not.  So in the middle of trying to get things done you have to deal with drunk people crashing into your door trying to get to their room.  The whole city is built around the idea of a devil’s playground, which just doesn’t jive with me.  This isn’t to say I don’t like the people that live there.  To be honest, I really do.  But it’s the city itself and the way that people are on their worse behavior when they’re there that I don’t like…

Xsan: Reset Qlogic Password

Lost the password for your Qlogic?  You can TFTP a new firmware file into a 5xxx switch and then do a factory reset while it’s in maintenance mode (follow the instruction exactly as they are in the latest version of the manual for your switch).  Or if you have a serial adapter you can break the boot sequence by using the space bar during boot.  At the prompt use:

factory 1

If you factory reset it then the default IP address will be 10.0.0.1 again and the default password will be back to password.  If you have the password and just want to reset it back to factory defaults then you can use the following steps:

Sanbox login: prom

 0) Exit 
 1) Image Unpack 
 2) Reset Network Config 
 3) Reset Password File 
 4) Copy Log Files 
 5) Remove Switch Config 
 6) Remake Filesystem 
 7) Reset Switch

OK, password file has been reset to factory defaults.

 2) Reset Network Config 
 3) Reset Password File 
 4) Copy Log Files

Off to Delphi.  Zeus released two Eagles to fly around the world and meet in the center.  They met at Delphi, which then became the religious center of Greek life.
