update: out of box there are no Integration Services (heartbeat, time, reboot, etc..), but there is a patch that MS is trying to incorporate into FreeBSD / refer to https://github.com/FreeBSDonHyper-V/freebsd/wiki/Build-the-kernel-with-the-HyperV-drivers
the patch is sort of ready for 8.2 but not yet for 9.1, anyway this is what you can do to try to add hyper-v support in 9.1, run:
# pkg_add -r git
# cd /usr
# git clone https://github.com/FreeBSDonHyper-V/freebsd-head.git
# cd /usr/freebsd-head
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=HYPERV_VM
for 8.3 or 8.2 follow the instruction here http://buchizo.wordpress.com/2012/09/12/freebsd-on-windows-azure-vms-en/
The hyper-v on Windows 8 pro will complain that network adapter hn0 is in degraded mode and that integration service upgrade required.
root@FreeBSD:/ # freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 9.1-RELEASE from update4.freebsd.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Inspecting system... done.
Preparing to download files... done.
The following files will be added as part of updating to 9.1-RELEASE-p2:
root@FreeBSD:/ # freebsd-update install
Installing updates...install: ///usr/src/crypto/openssl/ssl/s3_cbc.c: No such file or directory

Nice looking HTML5 interface, flash also available if you miss it.
"With the release of Nessus 5, all Nessus server configuration is managed via the GUI. The nessusd.conf file is deprecated. In addition, proxy settings, subscription feed registration, and offline updates are managed via the GUI" :(
To set update of plugins to everyday as example, go to Configuration - Advanced - verify auto_update - yes and auto_update_delay - 24 (this are the hours). This way it seems there is no need to cron anything. Anyway you can start update manually via GUI or by the script (FreeBSD example: /usr/local/nessus/sbin/nessus-update-plugins )

There is an issue with iBooks in 6.1.3 on iPad2. When iPad is in offline mode (disconnected from iTunes server) and you try to click "Store", it will complain that iTunes store is not available, but will not let you to go back to iBooks. The only way to read you books again is to reboot iPad.
There is certain issue in the logic of recovery model of SP: the recommendation is to use full recovery, as it keeps transaction log data, instead of simple. However, if you use Sharepoint backup the log never gets flushed. And so it keeps growing, until you run sql backup log command. But since you already did full db backup, the backup log file is actually not needed and can be deleted. Work of Sisyphus... The way out is to use simple mode, although it not recommended. Anyway talk to you dba...

IT governance addresses two major topics: demand governance (“doing the right things”)
and supply-side governance (“doing things right”).
PS: for more staff for IT governance refer to an elaier post http://daniyar-tech.blogspot.ch/2012/12/it-governance-explained-to-business.html and http://daniyar-tech.blogspot.ch/2012/12/business-management-of-it.html
PPS: there is an interesting analysis on centralised vs decentalised model - refer to Figure 5 in this document

So from timing and price point of view, anyone should be happy with Z77 (or H77 locked) and quite affordable CPU I7-3770K (or I7-3700 locked) = limited to 32GB RAM and 4/8 cores.
If you are ready to wait until June 2013, then you may save some money on current lineup since a new one is getting ready: 4th generation of Intel CPU and Z87, H87, etc. chipsets - refer to http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Intel-Desktop-Roadmap.jpg
