  New Microsoft Exchange User Monitor
We could have really used this tool a couple of weeks ago. Announcement here.

This seems to also be a really good tool to address the inevitable complaints from users stating that "the server is slow" when the rest of the users on the server seem fine.

You can download it from MS here.

Make sure you run this for a while when you *don't* need it. The interface takes some getting used to, and you want to be familiar with it so you can tell what normal looks like.

  RIM signs with MS, IBM, Novell for IM
Enterprise-level instant messaging. Quote-unquote. A step better than the late (and not at all missed) Yahoo Enterprise IM, since it appears will work with the handheld devices. Integration with LCS with trials starting in September?

I can definitely see doing IM on the 957-style keyboards, but not on the 7100 series. The 7100 keyboard is not built for easy typing, and I say that as someone who's been using one for six months now. I could type like a demon on the old keyboard, with this one it's painful to type more than a sentence or two: I thought it would get easier with time, but I think I achieved top speed after day 4 and have not improved since.

RIM needs to expand their service offerings in a really bad way: with Good nipping at their heels (and providing far more basic services for the price) they really need something to distinguish themselves.

But I still think they're going down the toilet unless they get their iPaq integration together.

Look Ma! A Blogger template!
