How to Manage and Implement Change in Your Unix Environment

Change is both our best friend and our worst enemy. It brings us the latest and greatest technology -- ever cheaper, faster, and better -- and it makes our jobs more important, our business knowledge more valuable. Change is the catalyst that drives our industry: the endless quest to alter and improve existing systems. Change in your IT shop, whether it's hardware or software related, can be either a blessing or a big blunder. Proper change management is crucial. Chuck takes you through the best steps for preparing for change, tracking it, and finally, implementing it

The Care and Feeding of IT Hires

After an extensive recruiting process, a talented systems analyst accepts your job offer. Hands are shaken and papers signed. You breathe a sigh of relief that an essential opening has been filled. But guess what? The hiring process isn't complete yet, and if you really want to hang on to this employee, it won't be finished for a year. That's right--hiring doesn't end when a new worker finally warms up that empty chair.

Online Banking, Trading to Get Boost The use of the Internet for banking and trading is likely to increase significantly in 1999, according to ZDNet's InternetTrak survey. The survey found that 12.8 million people said they are "very likely" to bank and trade online in the three months following the January survey period.

Webmasters Under Fire, Under Pressure

The job of managing a company's Web site is a pressure cooker, one in which the heat infiltrates from above and below. The early success of Web sites as marketing arms and revenue generators has raised the expectations of managers, who want to bring the sites in line with their business's bottom-line objectives. At the same time, departmental users want to push more of their initiatives over the Net. The result: Most Webmasters say their daily pressures continue to mount, and many fear losing control of their sites' priorities, according to an annual survey of Webmasters conducted by Inter@ctive Week and Advantage Business Research.

Know Your Internet Shopping Rights

The Web remains a relatively new way to shop, but this doesn't mean the Internet is a lawless Wild West where na´ve consumers are victimized and ripped off. Online consumers can benefit from the same legal protections as those who shop by telephone, from catalogs, or by other means.

The Worldlier Wider Web

Nearly five years after the birth of the commercial browser, the World Wide Web is beginning to live up to its name by becoming decidedly more worldwide. More than 200 countries are connected to the Internet. But what does that breadth of connectivity mean for a business that wants to use the Web to reach customers, suppliers or distributors? When does a Web strategy need to become a worldwide Web strategy?

Getting What You Pay For

Suddenly free PCs are everywhere -- three offers for free PCs in the last month alone, and more on the way. Is this a gimmick or a con game? Has the hardware industry finally decided to emulate online businesses by having negative revenues? More importantly, is this the step that will lead to universal network access?

127 Ways to Get Over the Missing Floppy

Whether you're enjoying your 'legacy' iMac or already waiting on a new fruit flavored one or a G3 Pro (likewise sans SCSI or parallel ports), the problem is quickly shifting from famine to feast of peripherals and adapters. The question is no longer "where's the floppy?", but "when are they going to up the 127-device limit?"

Ed. - For all the media's complaining about a missing 1.4 megabyte floppy drive, Mac users appear to have found plenty of alternatives.

Caches Keep Content Close at Hand

Sex sells, no matter the medium. Sex also slows, at least on the Web. Online presentations of the Starr report and the Victoria's Secret lingerie show offered plenty in the way of titillation-while proving that "World Wide Wait" is more than a poor play on words. But scandals and scanty clothing aren't alone to blame. Fact is, corporate users are just as likely as casual surfers to be stuck waiting for the information they want, whatever it is. And when business depends on the Internet there's more than bottlenecks to contend with.

The Webbies: Hollow Statues

As your eyes glaze over this week from reading all the award show hype and PR-ish coverage, keep in mind that none of it really matters. Sure, it's fun, and it will give you a big People magazine kind of thrill to spend your water cooler breaks chatting with your work friends about how the Webby Awards, which take place Thursday, are getting more and more like the Oscars each year. Or, for the cynical, chatting about whether all award shows are inherently evil. But does anyone, besides the show's promoters and participants, give half a damn?

Ed. - We'd like to know, did you care in the slightest?

Examining PerLDAP

LDAP (short for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) promises to be a central repository of information about users and corporate resources. However, if it is difficult to access or manipulate that information, then few organizations will take LDAP seriously. Programmers and administrators, in particular, need to be able to access this information through a variety of methods and tools.

DECnet Network Protocol

This article contains information on how to use and configure available DECnet software as well as information on how the kernel code works.
DECnet was designed by Digital as a way to interconnect their range of products. In its Phase IV implementation, released in 1983, it can support 63 areas of 1023 nodes each. The specifications for DECnet Phase IV are freely available (see Resources), which has allowed others to provide DECnet connectivity in products such as Sun's Sunlink DNI and Linux.

Mac OS X Server is Here - and the Price is Right

Combining the strength of Unix with the simplicity of the Mac OS, the industrial strength operating system can be purchased from Apple Authorized Resellers and The Apple Store for US $499 -- with an unlimited client license. Apple says Mac OS X Server, when coupled with a new Macintosh Server G3, is the fastest platform for running Apache for under U.S. $5000 - outperforming Linux, Solaris and Windows NT Server.

Ed. - Apple's history of charging premiums for its products  appears to have been expelled in favor of increasing market share with competitive prices.

Moving Back to the (Palm) Desktop

Since installing Palm Desktop 2.1 I'm not reaching for my PalmPilot as often. Now I'm looking up addresses and checking my calendar using either Palm Desktop or the Instant Palm Desktop menu. I'm using my PowerBook's modem to dial phone numbers, and I'm viewing and sorting my personal information in ways I'd never considered. Like an amphibian that exists comfortably either on land or in the ocean

For Web Wannabes In The Kitchen

FOR THE past couple of years, the Internet has fueled consumer sales of personal computers. At the same time, high-tech companies have been looking into the future and deciding that not everyone will want the complexity of a PC to get on the Net. Stand by for the next wave: a new generation of information appliances is almost upon us.

The Secret Guide to RealAudio

OK, let's get the basic stuff out of the way first. Making RealAudio files is easy and can be completely free. First, you make a good audio recording in your favorite format, which is usually a .WAV file. Then, you encode it using the free RealProducer program for Windows (click here to find an encoder for Mac, Linux, or Unix). And if you wish, get a free server for high-efficiency streaming (or read the rest of the article to learn how to skip the server altogether!).

* IVB: The Internet Valley Benchmark (IVB) compares a company's zone of Web influence to that of its peers and across industries through the use of a standard value. The set level for the IVB is the current zone of Web influence for Internet Valley. Why Internet Valley Benchmark ?

Internet Valley was founded and coined the term Web Influence in 1995.
IV became the first company to provide the online community with full-scale Web Influence related services.
In May 1996, Internet Valley published the first Web Influence list,  rating the Top 100 Online Computer Magazines. Since that time, Internet Valley has continued to develop the hyperlink mechanics-based methods and technology to monitor and evaluate the current level of Web Influence. The basic subjects of this research have been the fastest growing sectors of iBusiness. All this time, Internet Valley has provided to the leading members of the Internet community   reliable data, trends and statistics.

Leading members of the IT community voiced their opinions regarding Internet Valley's  3-year effort to research Web Influence trends:
    - Matthew Rothenberg, director of online content at MacWeek.Com, joint venture of ZDNet and IDG, "We are thrilled by the results of the study..." January 5, 1999
    - IBM e-commerce director Scott Gannon: "I think your research is really proven right on.  I think you're focused on the right thing..." January 28, 1999
