5-0 out of 5 stars Still using this book in 2003!
This is the best VBScript book and I've never felt the need to get another one.It's accessible to a novice (which I was when I first bought it) but has enough depth and richness of information to still be used as a reference guide now that I have over 5 years of experience.I can look up all the functions in it quickly (easy to forget syntax when you're programming in VBScript and client-side JavaScript at the same time), since I've marked the pages with post-it tabs, and it's well organized so that I can find things quickly even if I haven't marked them.Sure,it doesn't describe some of the newer language features that came out after it was published, but still it will work 95% of the time.I notice the same author worked on the O'Reilly VBScript in a Nutshell book, so I might check that out, but generally I don't like the Nutshell books as much because they don't have code samples.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great bridge to VBScript for ASP
I had been developing strictly with perl for Unix, when I needed to dosome work on an NT platform I ordered this book. I used it coupled withO'Reilly's ASP in a nutshell and finished the job quickly. It is a greatreference for migrating from other scripting languages.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for "intermediates"
This book is NOT for complete novices like me!Terms like "OCX", "32-bit", and "server-side includes" are used but not explained at all.With some help from other books, someof the material made sense.That said, there is a lot of good content inthis book.I'd recommend a more introductory book (is there one?) for truerookies. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Too Much Work
Material is presented out of order and not readable to anyone who has not already mastered the subject.

4-0 out of 5 stars Oldie but Goodie
This book is a fair reference for the intermediate programmer. However, it stops at Delphi 5, so it's use for those using later versions of Delphi will find a lot missing. The book is organized fairly well and it is easy to find answers to questions that are pertinent up through Delphi 5. It does have some tutorial content, but that is limited and for those seeking programming with Delphi education would be better off with other books. This book is best used as a supplement to an instructional book, like the Cantu books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Keep this on my bookshelf
Ray has written an excellent desktop reference for Delphi. I really liked the explanation of the SysUtils unit. I found that there were functions in there that I had written myself, if I had only known I would have saved myself some time. The Language reference with the Tips and Tricks is excellent, helps make more sense of the sometimes archaic online help. My only complaint is that this is the ONLY Delphi book published by O'Reilly, I would love to see a Learning, Programming, or Mastering book! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Programming .NET Web Services
I like this book. It's very useful for a web developer.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best titles for web services developers
This text addresses just about every challenge a web-services developer may face. Whether it involves calling a set of services asynchronously (and somehow keeping the client(s) updated of its progress) - or whether it is monitoring, profiling and logging your web-services - this text contains well explained examples of doing a lot of useful stuff.4-0 out of 5 stars Understand web services in a .NET environment
Web Services are a catchphrase that many Microsoft-centric developers are falling in love with and they don't know why.Hey, the affair isn't limited to Microsoft based development firms.Web Services are hot topics right now.They provide the best way yet to utilize the Internet for remote work.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars good stuff
good stuff.could have been more advanced.questionable organization (much like windows itself.)still, the tips and tricks picked up more than paid for the volume.

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for anyone living with/supporting/rolling out Windows XP
Windows XP is a fact of life for most of us.The sad fact of the matter is that Windows is bloated and sick - loaded with performance/security/stability robbing settings and "extras".Karp's excellent volume - simple enough for the layman but deeply valuable even for the experienced lays out how to pare down XP to fighting form.You can't change XP's basic nature - but you can improve matters significantly.Windows XP Annoyances for Geeks is well organized (like all O'Reilly books) and full of practical, real-world tips.If you must support or roll out XP in a corporate environment, then this book becomes essential to your survival (or at least your sanity).Is it the last word?Probably not - but you will not actually read or use much more than you get here.Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gives you a less annoying XP
Isn't that a neat picture on the cover? Certainly grabs one's attention.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Net Admin Book
Oh my, this book is just incredible.It is the most comprehensive book I found covering many advanced networking technologies including routing and firewalls.One thing so cool is able to understand comparatively the firewall features of routing and NAT functionality of RRAS, IPSec filters, TCP/IP filtering, ICF, and Windows Firewall.I wasn't able to find such material in any other books.
5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Do you need to configure a network service on a Windows server? If you do, then this book is for you! Authors Craig Hunt and Roberta Bragg, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that provides practical, detailed network information for the Windows system administrator.
5-0 out of 5 stars Revised, expanded edition addresses numerous networks
Craig Hunt and Roberta Bragg's WINDOWS SERVER 2003 NETWORK ADMINISTRATION: BUILDING AND MAINTAINING PROBLEM-FREE WINDOWS NETWORKS is a recommended reference for programmers: it's been revised and expanded to address the numerous networks supported by windows Server 2003 and to address common security issues, and includes chapters on protocol, firewalls and network security, TCP/IP troubleshooting, and much more. Serious programmers working in the Windows Server 2003 environment will find it should be close at hand to explain tools and techniques basic to administration issues ... Read more

Do you use Windows Server 2003 and perform security tasks as one of your primary job functions? If you do, then this book is for you! Authors Mike Danseglio and Robbie Allen, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that covers Windows Server 2003 and some amount of Windows XP security.
5-0 out of 5 stars Recipes and formulas sorted by task domain or system service for quick and easy access
Mike Danseglio & Robbie Allen's Windows Server 2003 Security Cookbook is for the IT pro and systems administrator concerned with Windows security. Windows 2003 is much more secure than prior versions but you have to know how to set it up properly - and that's where Windows Server 2003 Security Cookbook comes in, offering recipes and formulas sorted by task domain or system service for quick and easy access. Many topics here are more advanced coverages not seen in competing titles, such as auditing and event log usage.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad book, but I wouldn't know
Got the book a while back from a non-amazon seller (but through the Amazon website). Communication between the seller and me was less than phenomenal, in that one day, the book just 'showed up'. Not a bad thing, but as a tracking-fiend, it was dissappointing not to have it tracked well. Book wasn't in flawless condition, it looked like someone had kindof slid it around a desk a lot (perhaps an artifact of their packing/shipping process), but was otherwise exactly as ordered. As for the content, well, I couldn't tell you - haven't had a chance to read it yet. Sorry 'bout that.

2-0 out of 5 stars Error-ridden and too little actual teaching
Not recommended, although some people like it a lot.� More errors in the text than others, making you go to the web for errata pages.Relies too much on just presenting source code for the reader to type in, without adequate explanation of what the code does and why it's structured the way it is.Less of a gentle introduction than Hillegass's book "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X", less comprehensive than Anguish's book "Cocoa Programming".

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny
This book is written in a very easy to understand language. The hints are pratical and should help everyone in some way. Microsoft will not tell you much of how to make your operating system work the way YOU want it to. Steve Bass takes care of that. It is a valuable resource for anyone who has a PC, novice or experienced. I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable about computers and I even learned a few new tricks.

4-0 out of 5 stars A sanity saver
I am still pretty much a neophite where computers are concerned, so I bought this book hoping that it could get me out of the "messes" I'm always getting into. It really DOES help! Thank you!!! Steve Bass, I'm now searching for other books you have written.

5-0 out of 5 stars Concise, excellent, usable tips
I've read many computer books, and I have to say this is one of the most informative. More important, Steve provides hundreds of tips to overcome the small (and large) problems of Windows. It's nice to konw that even a well-known computer columnist experiences the same frustrations we ordinary users do. Happily, he willing to share the solutions he's found.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The Question is Why?
I made the mistake of buying this book based on recommendations I had read here on amazon.com -- don't make the same mistake. If you are looking for practical techniques that will help you write .NET applications, this is NOT the book you want. Now this book is sort of interesting and points out weirdnesses of .NET but nothing that I hadn't seen online. So, check this book out first by browsing through a hard copy in a bookstore to see if it's what you want. I wish I had.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book ...
... for many reasons, foremost in my mind - the format makes for very efficient reading - and if all you have is 30 minutes a day, a gotcha or two a day and in a month you are done. That being said, I found some of the topics rather esoteric, so chose to revisit those at some point in the unknown, er, future.
5-0 out of 5 stars GOTCHA!!!
Are you among the many programmers who have come to appreciate how powerful Microsoft's .NET Framework can be as a platform for development? If you have, this book is for you! Author Venkat Subramaniam, has done an outstanding job of writing a great book that shares his .NET experiences with developers, to help them avoid the gotchas!

3-0 out of 5 stars decent coverage of Windows 2003 security but not up to the O'Reilly standards
This book is mediocre. It covers all security related topics with regard to Windows Server 2003. I wish some sections had more details. It seems like the author was thumbing through Microsoft technical reference materials and paraphrasing with "Ok so do step 1, then do step 2, then step 3." To this I ask, Well Ok but what is the purpose of step 2? Are there alternatives? What are the pros and cons of step 2? So I guess you could say many areas of this book left we wanting additional details. It did NOT seem like the author had worked through all of these scenarios in a realworld environment (like Mark Minasai).
3-0 out of 5 stars Useful Insights
Actually it is true, a lot of the book is a rehash of common Windows security practices that is way overdocumented, e.g. how many times must we redocument the simple tool Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.However, interspersed between the rehashed material are useful insights.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good General Guide
I find this book overall well written and a lot of the advice practical.This book tends to be more wordy on the discussion, but does have some excellent nuts-n-bolts practical side. Overall, I think this is a useful guide to most people, but I found that much of the information to be too general, at least those familiar with practical experience or those studying MSCE certification material: GPOs, security templates, MSBSA, SUS, IPSec, IAS, VPN, etc. So at least for me, or others going through books for certification studies, a lot of the material is redundant and offers little in the way of new insights.

I cannot say enough great things about this book!I'm a SQL Server developer and have used many forms of the logic presented from this book in many of my daily routines. This is my first review and my inspiration was to oppose all negative or irrational comments made in some of the previous reviews.Are you sure you read the "T-SQL Cookbook" by OReilly's?Might be a little too advanced for some, I can see that in your reveiw.How is it not in depth?Because it is not for beginners?It has thousands of sollutions to everyday problems.BUY THIS BOOK FOR A GREAT REPORT WRITING TOOL, DEVELPOR HANDBOOK OR WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO IN SQL SERVER 2000!!!!!!!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Lazy Writing will Leave you Confused
Although this book touches on subjects that are interesting, he's very lazy in how he approaches the topics.What I mean is that he ends his sections leaving you wanting more.Here's an example where he's supposed to be explaining how to hit Google's Web service with XML.He ends the section with this paragragh:

3-0 out of 5 stars Overall a good reference, but needs more examples
I had a need to run a .exe file on a remote machine. So I typed in the "ExecuteAll.vbs" script example from page 27. The script runs and prompts me for the information. But the command I feed to the script never executes on the remote server. The command can be run manually on the remote server. So I know the command is good. I even tried the command that's shown as an example and even that didn't work.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ideal for the Windows Administrator
This squat 350 page book is filled with practical advice for anyone tasked with the administration of one or more Windows servers. It covers simple remote machine management, Active Directory, IIS, and the truly annoying Windows DNS issues. Screen shots are kept to a minimum and graphics are used effectively. Concepts are explained but not rat-holed and the topics covered are practical. The only thing keeping me from giving this a perfect ranking are the often longish code samples that are not annotated and could be referenced on the site as opposed to included in the text.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for experienced VB.NET Programmers
This is a great book to start programming in C#. I have been programming in VB.NET for over three years and this book has been very helpful while making the transition from VB to C# and every time I am going from one language to the other. It is nicely organized and you can quickly find the information and exmaples you need to start working.I definitely recommend this book. I got it (...)at my local bookstore and it is worth alot more than that.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fairly good structure; Mostly for VB.NET programmers
I concur with other reviewers on the following points:
1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly planned, I don't know who this book is for
The description of this book says it's for ASP developers transitioning to ASP.NET.I have worked with ASP for over a year, and this book was pretty much useless.The only redeeming factor was that I was able to get it from my local library, so I found out before it cost me any cash.The first part of the book delves into topics with zero explanation, and very little code, so you don't have a chance to get your feet wet with actual code, and the topics are dull and dry.The last portion of the book looks like it would be a nice reference, but honestly, why would you buy a book like this for a reference?Isn't that what the 'net is for?5-0 out of 5 stars O'Reilly at it's best
I've been reading O'Reilly since the days of the tiny fifty page staple-bound brown Nutshell books that covered shell commands and the first version of Perl. This book is that has taken that same approach to data condensation and applied it to everything you need to know about ASP.NET. And extend they have at almost a thousand pages it is far heavier than the original books, but that doesn't make it any less worthwhile. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, if outdated, introduction to Qt
Book starts out strong, and was helpful as an introduction for Qt.However, it seems to cut out about 350 pages in, putting subjects such as "Focus Handling" in its own 3 page chapter, rather than integrating it into an existing chapter.That said, the Portability chapter, which includes a list of Qt functions that are not portable, was a valuable addition.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good but not enough
Not enough examples und for beginners as I am, too many questions. Betterone is "Das Qt Buch" in german. This ise tehe bestone what I have ever seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
I am new to Linux programming (I'm a .Net developer) and was a bit frustrated with the online tutorials for Qt and decided to give this book a try. I am very happy with the decision, this book is very well written. I like the style of the author, giving us some practical exercises after each topic, so we can improve the application he develops throughout the book (a "paintbrush"). Now that I understood the basics I can use the Qt documentation to do my own apps.Read more
