I just signed up for Comcast for an apartment I'm renting in California. (Yes, I'm bicoastal now ... I own my place in NYC and I rent here in downtown Palo Alto.) Either way, I went to the Comcast store and got a little self-install kit that comes complete with coax, HDMI, cable wall huggers (or whatever you would call them), and even coax splitter. I thought it was so cute!! I'm not used to not having to wait a week for the cable guy. Better yet, I'm not used to the cable company thinking highly enough of its customers …

Hey guys...having some serious trouble with configuring Exchange Server 2013 on Server 2012 for sending and receiving emails to and from the internet. Sending and receiving internally works great. However, Comcast blocks port 25 and running the MX record check over at DNSstuff.com reports that the MX record points to the mail server at the correct public IP address, but it cannot establish any SMTP connections. Trying to reconfigure my send and receive connectors EMC Powershell have failed using ports 587 and 465. Is there anyway that I can still use my .com domain and circumvent the blocked port? I …

There has certainly been a lot FUD being spread around lately by the likes of [URL="http://www.comcast.com"]Comcast[/URL] about how [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer"]P2P[/URL] networks are filling up the Internet pipes. Just a couple of weeks ago, fellow Daniweb blogger, Davey Winder wrote (with tongue firmly in cheek), [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2378.html"]The Internet is Full, please get off[/URL], for his InsideEdge blog. I asked Steve Rosenbaum, CEO of [URL="http://www.magnify.net"]Magnify.net[/URL], if he believed the internet was running out of capacity in an interview on Friday and his reaction was, “That’s just silly.” I’ve always felt if the internet were truly filling up, why not just build more capacity. Seems …

Is there hope for stocks in 2009? At all? A University of Iowa business professor things so, and he claims he has the data to prove it. It’s all about upside potential – and the fact that Wall Street has already baked a lot of the bad news into the trading mix. Says Todd Houge, assistant professor of finance at U. of Iowa's Tippie College of Business, “despite a long string of bad economic numbers in the past two months, most major stock indices are continuing to trend up from the lows they hit in November.” Houge makes his case …

One of my favorite things about Twitter is how people can use it to live-blog conferences they're attending. Case in point: today, I've been watching [URL="http://twitter.com/thornley"]Joseph Thornley[/URL], provide live commentary from the Canadian Institute Conference on Social Media. I've been learning about how the City of Calgary manages social media tools for [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQrh2M0vLG4"]employee recruitment[/URL] and retention. That's right, retention. Some nuggets from the conference: "Social media must be part of a [URL="http://twitter.com/thornley/statuses/933211780"]larger strategy[/URL] to get the most value from it. It should not stand isolated on its own." "If you have employees who waste time on Facebook, it's a [URL="http://twitter.com/thornley/statuses/933222208"]management …

On a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend, Comcast released its latest volley against its customer base, announcing a 250 GB monthly download limit. According to reports, after the first violation, you will get a message from your friends at Comcast warning you about your dastardly behavior (aka using the service you are paying for) and any subsequent violation of the limit would result in suspension of service for a year (or the less publicized punishment where you get sent to Dean Wormer and put on double-secret probation). This is a thinly-veiled continuation of Comcast's attack on P2P traffic. Earlier …
