K. Scott Allen : Remote Desktop Hacks: "re: Remote Desktop Hacks If you download the server 2003 admin pack (free), you can create an MMC snapin for remote desktops. In a multi server environment it is invaluable. Basically looks like windows explorer, your list or remote desktops on the left, and you can just toggle between them.
Also it is configurable per connection whether you want to use a console connection or not.
TestNG is a testing framework inspired from JUnit and NUnit but introducing some new functionalities that make it more powerful and easier to use, such as:
* JDK 5 Annotations (JDK 1.4 is also supported with JavaDoc annotations). * Flexible test configuration. * Support for data-driven testing (with @DataProvider). * Support for parameters. * Allows distribution of tests on slave machines. * Powerful execution model (no more TestSuite). * Supported by a variety of tools and plug-ins (Eclipse, IDEA, Maven, etc...). * Embeds BeanShell for further flexibility. * Default JDK functions for runtime and logging (no dependencies). * Dependent methods for application server testing.
A 3-Step Success Strategy For Leading Change By Barbara Brown, PhD
As a leader, you know that change is an ongoing process, not a one-time event. The trick is to implement change in a way that does not destroy your organization, disrupt your service, and demoralize your staff. These three steps of the change process will help you do that.
Step 1: Analyze The Change
Before you begin any change process, think about what you want to continue doing, what you want to stop doing, and what you want to start doing. Consider the following strategies:
1. Givens: These are aspects of the change you cannot control. This change must happen, regardless of what you want, what you say, or what you do. You cannot control what will happen, when it will happen, how it will happen, where it will happen, or whom it will happen to.
2. Negotiables: These are aspects of the change you can influence. This change may or may not be necessary. It could be modified or adjusted in some way. You may be able to control wh…
1. Why is it necessary to solve the problem? 2. What benefits will you receive by solving the problem? 3. What is the unknown? 4. What is it you don’t yet understand? 5. What is the information you have? 6. What isn’t the problem? 7. Is the information sufficient? Or is it insufficient? Or redundant? Or contradictory? 8. Should you draw a diagram of the problem? A figure? 9. Where are the boundaries of the problem? 10. Can you separate the various parts of the problem? Can you write them down? What are the relationships of the parts of the problem? 11. What are the constants (things that can’t be changed) of the problem? 12. Have you seen the problem before? 13. Have you seen this problem in a slightly different form? 14. Do you know a related problem? 15. Can you think of a familiar problem having the same or a similar unknown? 16. Suppose you find a problem related to yours that has already been solv…
