    It would help if you called it DST.

    To answer your question, following the prescribed procedures laid out by MS and RIM.

    Well the cinema I worked for got DTS in one threater but couldn't afford the digital sound equipment for the other screens. So we play all the new release and popular movies in that one.


    And you?

    This weekend we're just going to do it. Since we have the BES, they have a checklist to go through that incorporates the Exchange updates.

    push out patches, firmware upgrades, cron the reboot if necessary and applicable, finished 99% of the prod boxes and appliances 2 weeks ago. lots of sitting around.

    Rolling out patches this week. The Fun has been identifying individual apps that also need DST patches (i.e. Business Objects/Crystal Reports, Java JRE's, Oracle, etc).

    MS will provide you with a DST patch for Win2K for a fee ($4K). It's not worth it, you can get a script from MS's site to run with TZEdit, or you can go to www.intelliadmin.com and use their GUI tool.

    What are you all using to deploy the updates to your Windows systems? WSUS? SMS? I'm stuck with WSUS... shoot me now.

    What about Outlook clients? Are you all letting users run the calendar rebasing tool or running it against your Exchange servers?


    PS: Congress is :greddy: for doing all this...
