Depending on which state CIO you ask (or even which time of day you ask him/her), consolidation is either the best or the worst thing that's ever happened to government IT.

On the one hand, those virtual machines are saving you thousands of dollars (maybe millions) in server costs, power, and space. On the other hand, virtualized machines are fueling the proliferation of unnecessary data storage (so-called “VM sprawl”), and those storage costs are biting into your savings.

As Linux Magazine’s Ken Hess puts it: “[Virtualization], a technology sold as ‘money saving,’ often has the opposite effect when left unchecked.”

To be fair, though, blaming virtualization for your unnecessary data storage is a little like blaming...

Error message windows usually contain number codes that sometimes is hard to understand the real meaning.
I found a nice app called Error Messages for Windows , a free tool that can help you find out the meanings of Windows error codes and messages. This tool contains the complete list of Windows error codes and their correspondent description. It also lets you display and print all of the error codes and messages defined for your version of Windows.

If you have software programs that produce numeric error codes now you can find out what they really mean.


System requirements:  MS Windows 7, 8, Vista , XP, Millennium Edition , 98 , MS Windows 2000 and 95/NT

There is a huge number of mission critical web applications that only run correctly on Internet Explorer 6 and while companies may be able to afford the cost of migrating applications to modern browsers, they cannot afford even a short...
