LAST WEEK'S MOST ACTIVE TECHNICAL Q&A QUESTIONS

CONNECTIVITY PROBLEM
Member MKFME "upgraded, apparently successfully, an NT4 PC to XP Pro.
The problem is I'm unable to connect to the Internet or join a domain.
It appears to be a DNS problem (error trying to join a domain = DNS
name does not exist) but nothing I've tried works. I can ping internal
and external IPs fine. I've used DNS IPs that work with other PCs. I've
run the XP network troubleshooting utility and it says all is OK. I've
searched the MS KB with no luck. Help!"

LAST WEEK'S MOST ACTIVE DISCUSSIONS

IT ADMIN "WAS FIRED" BUT... WAS IT A GOOD IDEA?
Member YOWYE's local admin was fired for misconduct, but he also
"created personal encrypted passwords which have locked in all
essential files... now the company has become paralyzed by an Admin who
no longer is with them... If you were [our] new IT Admin, what course
of action would you take?"

"TOO HOT FOR TR"

The following discussions were sufficiently non-technical or
controversial to be suppressed from TechRepublic's Hot and New
Discussions lists.

WHAT VEHICLE DO YOU DRIVE NOW, WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE AND LEAST
FAVORITE?
Member JDGRETZ currently drives "a 2005 Acura TSX with the Navigation
system" but his all-time favorite was a "1972 240Z (sold it at 10 years
old with 268,000 miles on the odo and it would still outrun most of the
competition), closely followed by a '64 Mini." Now that he's
established his take on automobile perfection, he wants to know "just
what do we like to drive and why?"
