There was only one decent reason to buy a PC in the months leading up to the launch of Windows Vista: the Express Upgrade program, which gave buyers of new PCs with Windows XP a free or cheap upgrade to Vista. The "Express" part of the upgrade is turning out to be a bit misleading for Dell customers, with the upgrades arriving on a first-come first-served basis in as many as 6-8 weeks, plus a website that’s experiencing nasty downtime, bugs, driver issues and other kinks.

Mozilla’s next incarnation of Firefox, version 2.0, currently in beta, is tentatively due for release on September 26. With that release, expect some nice upgrades to the browser’s RSS and XML reader capabilities, among other functions, that will keep it on par with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7.

had related at Another Raid Failure that an initial attempt to rebuild the raid had failed, and left the story with fresh drives on order and winging their way toward us. The drives did arrive, but unfortunately the rebuild still failed. A Knowledge Base article suggested that there might be unreported problems on other elements of the array, with the suggested solution of blowing it all away and recreating from scratch. As we still had some suspicions about backups at that point, I didn’t want to do that until we had unquestioned good recovery capability.

Usually upgrades are binary: either they work or they don’t. Actually, my experience with SME upgrades has been very good: I’ve only had a very few where the upgrade process didn’t work at all. In those cases, you install new, apply all applicable blades, and then restore from backup. That’s annoying, but fairly simple.
A lot of folks have grumbled about paying $130.00 to upgrade to Panther, the latest version of Mac OS X (October 2003). I have to say that it is definitely worth it: maybe you feel cheated because you just paid for Jaguar six months ago, but you will be happy after you install this. The hype, for once, has reality behind it: this is as good as Apple said it would be.

Every time I have to perform some major work on my production SQL Server clusters, I spend a lot of time researching and planning the task at hand. And when it comes to something as big as an upgrade from a SQL Server 7.0 Cluster to a SQL Server 2000 cluster, I even spend more time than usual. I can’t afford for mistakes on a server that needs to be up 24/7.
