Microsoft Rereleases Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2013

According to this post, Microsoft rereleases service pack 1 for SharePoint 2013.  SharePoint MVP, Todd Klindt, wrote a nice little post about it.

However, I would caution to try it out for at least a minimum of 2 months.  And monitor the forums and social media to gain insight how the service pack is reacting to production systems.

GPG4Win A great toolset for personal digital security


GPG4win_logo GPG4win is a great toolset for generating your own digital certificates.  In today’s times of eavesdropping by various entities; taking steps to safe guard your information in motion and information at rest is more vital than ever.  This toolset is great because you can:

  • Create your own digital signatures
  • Encrypt your email
  • Encrypt/Decrypt/Sign files or folders on your personal computer.
  • Create CheckSums
  • And to verify CheckSums with programs you download from the internet to verify it came from the proper source.

If time permits; I will create some tutorials from my blog on how to perform these actions.
