Microsoft MVPs: PeteLong, stevenlewis, Netman66 and kidego
Wes Lennon, the Director of Community Services, and Austin Miller, one of EE's owners, were asked by Microsoft to nominate members for consideration for Microsoft's Most Valuable Professional award. Four of the nominees -- all outstanding members at Experts Exchange -- have been awarded MVP status.

PeteLong is a relative newbie at Experts Exchange, having joined in April, 2003, but he's made the most of his tenure, amassing over 700,000 points, which puts him near the top of almost every Microsoft operating system topic area. He is the ITC Projects Manager for the Middlesbrough Primary Care Trust, part of the National Health Care system in Great Britain, and has the good grace to call Experts Exchange his favorite web site.

stevenlewis is anything but a newbie. He joined EE in September, 2000, and since then has earned over 1,500,000 points, which puts him third on EE's Hall of Fame. He does double duty, as the IT Manager for a small midwestern manufacturing company and as the senior tech for a small ISP, and he hits the links at every available opportunity, proving that there IS life outside Experts Exchange.

Netman66 is also fairly new to Experts Exchange, having joined in January, 2003, but he is making his mark in the Windows server topic areas. He notes that he feels he received the award "in large part due to you and your site. I'm very appreciative to all of you for both your support and your most excellent forum to assist others."

If there is a true specialist among EE's MVPs, it would have to be Kidego, who has made his mark in the Microsoft Exchange TA, where he has over 367,000 points since joining EE in December, 2002. He has been administering Exchange servers for over nine years, including a stint at Microsoft's PSS site in North Carolina, and is the Page Editor for the various email topic editors.

Congratulations, gentlemen -- it is truly an honor to have you as members!

The SANS Guide to Security Vulnerabilities
The vast majority of worms and other successful cyber attacks are made possible by vulnerabilities in a small number of common operating system services. They count on organizations not fixing the problems, and they often attack indiscriminately, scanning the Internet for any vulnerable systems. Is this your network?
Read about it here.

Meet Jim Levie
jlevie has "always been the favorite expert" of Page Editor The--Captain. "He has more patience than anyone I've ever met, and his answers are usually dead-on. He may have sold his soul to BSD, but I can forgive him for that (hehe)", The--Captain says. "He also convinced me to stick around EE when I was feeling frustrated with some of the environment long ago." With an endorsement like that, who can argue?

Page Editor: The--Captain   Page Editor: zenlion420
Born and raised in the flatlands of the US midwest,I started fiddling with networks and the Internet about 10 years ago (although I've always played with computers). I get by running my own consulting service, which can be the best job or the worst job I ever had, depending on the day.   I am the owner/operator of a small web-design and custom PC design/repair business. Currently, my main areas of interest are: Flash(ActionScript) and CSS, although I really enjoy troubleshooting hardware issues and building PCs as well. I've been with Experts-Exchange for roughly four months now, and look forward to serving this wonderful online community in any way that I can.
Natalie Salambier's Corner: Getting rid of spam
I hate spam. I think almost everyone does. I've often wondered what the email boxes of those... okay, you know ... people who send me all kinds of information on V1agra, v*i*a*g*r*a, and vaigra look like.

But I found a site the other day that I think might help cut down on the junk I get: http://spam.abuse.net. There is a ton of information there, and some great tips for users of all stripes: Windows, Linux, Unix and Mac. If there's one thing we can all agree on -- it's that spam is the true scourge of the Internet.
