Hello IT Pro, 

Here’s your weekly helping of handy tools and information. As always we have no affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

SysAdmin Book We’ve Been Recommended

Taming Information Technology: Lessons from Studies of System Administrators. “It is essentially an ethnographic study of system administrators. The authors videotaped and otherwise documented SA’s over a period of time and were able to break down a number of fascinating incidents and how to improve the art. I’m disappointed this hasn’t been recommended reading for all SA’s and maybe more importantly, their bosses, who too often don’t really know what SA’s do.” Thank you very much for point this out AngryMountainBiker.


A Free Tool

Monitor Active Directory Group Membership Change. This PowerShell script will monitor the Active Directory groups and notify you by email if a change occurred since the last time it checked.


An IT Admin Podcast

The Admin Admin Podcast. A British IT Admin Podcast I stumbled across “for people who work in the Real world of IT. If you are a sysadmin or want to learn more about servers this podcast is for you.”

A Good Twitter Follow

SwiftPOnSecurity. “I talk systems security, author https://DecentSecurity.com, write Scifi, sysadmin, & use Oxford commas. Kinda prefer they/them.”


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments or suggestions.
