    Hi
    1. Thanks for such a good resource - it is brilliant, aprt from one small
    issue...

    Is there any way to get a printer friendly print out. I printed out all 41
    pages, and found that I was missing a load of text from right hand side. I
    may need new glasses, but couldn't see see a relevant print button.

    Cheers

    Alex

    I have to agree with Alex. Your site is great but we need a way to print all
    that incredible content so we have it when we are at the server screen.

    Thanks!

    Alex,

    Later, a pdf will be available. The drawback on such a document that once
    downloaded people forget that the content is not static. If an issue occurs
    I will add it to the site, I cannot add it to a pdf that somebody
    downloaded.

    Because of this I am working on a subscriber part of the site where I can
    keep track of the people who downloaded the pdf and mail out updates. I have
    this idea already for a long time but the implementation is not easy.

    That is also the reason you must register to view the content of the SP1
    doc. If really important things are added I can contact the user.

    Printer friendly documents with screenshots in it is hardly possible though
    I must admit that I am not a html expert.

  5. Yes, use a browser other than IE. IE's ability to shorten line length when
    printing is legendary.

  6. Hi Alex,

    Why not use the Internet-Explorer integrated, super bonus feature which
    allowas you to print in landscape format? ;)

    I only have a German IE here so I don't know the English expressions /
    menus to do that.
    Just take the first available IE-menu and look for something like "set
    up page".
    There you can change the printing format. This will lead to more pages
    but all of the text will be printed out.

    Hth,

    Regards,
    Max

  7. Hello,

    I just read the installation manual of Mariëtte, but just one question:

    Exchange SP1 update is already installed in 2004.
    Do I have to install this update again, or forget this update?


    Thanks,

    Edward

    Thanks Lisa! I already had a look at a tool that allows me to batch convert
    all stored images to a size like 50% of the original. That makes about 98%
    of the content editable in Word so I can save them as PDF files.

    Don't forget that this is a huge amount of work I am not going to do for
    free. The pdf's could be made available for a small fee... I am thinking of
    making the content in pdf available for subscribers only. Users can
    subscribe for a quarter of year, half a year and so on. It will be very
    cheap and I hope the quantity will cover some of my work then.

    I will, of course, only make documents part of the subscriber part that I or
    Marina wrote. This will not be the case with the SBS SP1 doc. This will be a
    registered user download. Notice the difference between a registered user
    and a subscriber!

    Just having ideas for the future of my site, nothing decided yet. But there
    will be some major things going to happen on my site.

    Edward, for you once more:

    Men, you men read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Installing Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 1
    In Windows Explorer, open the SP1 folder, and then double-click
    E3SP1ENG.exe. Below you will see a range of screen shots that will show you
    what to expect. You don't have to install Exchange Server Service Pack if
    you already installed this service pack in the past, but if you install it
    again it won't do any harm. If you install from CD just pop in the CD and
    autorun will present you the first screen:

  11. Hey, Mariette - I wonder how many of these posts are actually from women,
    but they are signing off with a man's name -- just so it looks like its
    only men who don't read!

    Mariette,

    I'd be willing to pay for that! I understand about the static/dynamic
    content. At any rate, keep us posted on what you do with the site, and keep
    up the good work! We all appreciate it.

    By the way, anything on the SwingIT migration and SBS SP1. My own server was
    configured with SwingIT.
