Get this in your inbox each week

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.

A Book I’m Reading

The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution. A great read to geek out on, packed with tons of stories about how our modern IT world has come about, including how the first programming language was written by a woman during the 19th century.


 


Free HelpDesk and Network Monitoring

Check out Spiceworks Free HelpDesk and Networking Monitoring software. We’ve been recommended these by countless IT Pros over the years.


 


A Dedicated IT Cheatsheet Site

OverAPI.com is a site collecting all the cheatsheets,all!


 


An IT Pro Quote We’re Enjoying

“If you want immediate feedback, always make changes in production” Source: Unknown.

Preventing Phish Attacks

John Lambert’s Office Lures Presentation “Has some high-quality training material for common phish attacks that are a more subtle than the usual Nigerian prince. John is a security researcher at Microsoft and is a solid twitter follow as well if you like seeing emergent threats and nature hikes simultaneously.” Thank you for the tip ReallyLongUserName01.


 


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

P.S. Another Free Tool. The Dude — free, cross-platform network monitor application that can scan and map your network and alert you if there are any problems.
