I am getting lots of positive feedback from readers all over the world. Feedback that really warms my heart. I just can’t help sharing one with you.
Kent, I’m super impressed with your book. Authoritative information in combination with a collegial writing style is a rare find. One of the ways you distinguish your writing from other tech books is the way you inject little tips to help keep the boat pointed straight up the river:
Looking forward to reading every page…
I just want to take this opportunity to say thanks to everyone that over the years have worked with ISA and TMG. Having myself worked with ISA and TMG since beta of ISA 2000 I can only say… You all did a fantastic job, making ISA and TMG one the best firewalls on the market. Thank you!
Just look at the list below and realize many of them will be available for sessions and discussions at TechDays in Örebro in next few days. Don’t miss it!

One of my favorite writers is Isaac Asimov. I am at the moment in the process of re-reading the complete series of books included in the Foundation Universe series (15 books). I am reading them in the order as suggested by Asimov himself before he passed away.
For thoose of you that do not know who Asimov is, or what the Foundation series are. I would like to point out the fact that the Foundation series was awarded the Hugo Award for Best All-Time Series in 1966 in competition with the well known Lord of the Rings series written by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Below is a list of the books and the order to read them. The table contains the order no, the year the book was published, the name of the book and some comments.
|1||1982||The Complete Robot||Collection of thirty-one robot short stories written between 1939 and 1977.|
|2||1954||The Caves of Steel||This is the first of the robot novels.|
|3||1957||The Naked Sun||The second robot novel.|
|4||1983||The Robots of Dawn||The third robot novel. Hugo Award nominee, 1984. Locus Award nominee, 1984|
|5||1985||Robots and Empire||The fourth robot novel. Locus Award nominee, 1986|
|6||1951||The Stars, Like Dust||This is the first of the Empire novels.|
|7||1952||The Currents of Space||The second Empire novel.|
|8||1950||Pebble in the Sky||The third Empire novel, however, it was Asimov’s first full novel to be published.|
|9||1988||Prelude to Foundation||This is the first Foundation novel. Locus Award nominee, 1989|
|10||1993||Forward the Foundation||The second Foundation novel (although it was the last written by Asimov himself).|
|11||1951||Foundation||The third Foundation novel. Actually, it is a collection of four stories, originally published between 1942 and 1944, plus an introductory section written for the book in 1949. Published, slightly abridged, as part of an Ace Double paperback, D-110, with the title “The 1000-Year Plan”, in 1955.|
|12||1952||Foundation and Empire||The fourth Foundation novel, made up of two stories, originally published in 1945. Published with the title ‘The Man Who Upset the Universe’ as a 35c Ace paperback, D-125, in about 1952.|

Hope you will enjoy reading this series as much as I am.
My new blog has now been around for 6 months and looking at the statistics over this period the blog has an interesting visitor curve…
One might wonder… Where will this end…
To all of my visitors I hope you will all have a great summer and thanks again for visiting konab.com
When using a Nokia E7 to synchronize with your Exchange server you might get into trouble if your certificates contains the Issuance Policies (Certificate Policies) extension.
Sniffing the traffic I found that when trying to connect the Nokia device sent an TLS Layer-1 Encrypted Alert (Hex 02 0A) and killed the TLS negotiation. Initially I was pretty sure I made some mistake when I installed my root CA certificate in the device, but after double-checking that, I was still unable to get the TLS handshake to work.
After a few hours of troubleshooting I found that the problem was that the certificate I used on my Exchange CAS server had an Issuance Policy referring to my CPS. In order for the Nokia E7 device to be able to consume any of my internal https sites I needed to change the certificate template and remove the Issuance Policy extension and renew my certificates used by my Exchange CAS and other internal websites.
After that the Nokia E7 was able to synchronize and access other internal https sites.
