Understanding WMI Scripting explains to Windows and Exchange Administrators how they can use the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) scriptable technology available in these products to ease their day-to-day management tasks. Under Windows.NET and Exchange 2000 (SP2), Microsoft is making solid enhancements in WMI. This will dramatically extend the scripting and manageability capabilities of Windows and Exchange. Illustrated with more than three hundred samples, the book links practical problems encountered by administrators to applicable scriptable solutions. Lissoir focuses not on MI programming aspects for developers but on how administrators can use what is available in Windows and Exchange for their admin work. WMI is a very important topic under Windows.NET and Exchange 2000 (SP2), so this book provides real added value to Windows/Exchange administrators. Although Exchange relies on Windows, no other book combines coverage of Windows and Exchange. · Fine tune management of Windows servers · Achieve better system management and customize critical operations · Access hundreds of usable scripts in book and downloadable from web

Eyetracking Web Usability is based on one of the largest studies of eyetracking usability in existence. Best-selling author Jakob Nielsen and coauthor Kara Pernice used rigorous usability methodology and eyetracking technology to analyze 1.5 million instances where users look at Web sites to understand how the human eyes interact with design. Their findings will help designers, software developers, writers, editors, product managers, and advertisers understand what people see or don’t see, when they look, and why. With their comprehensive three-year study, the authors confirmed many known Web design conventions and the book provides additional insights on those standards. They also discovered important new user behaviors that are revealed here for the first time. Using compelling eye gaze plots and heat maps, Nielsen and Pernice guide the reader through hundreds of examples of eye movements, demonstrating why some designs work and others don’t. They also provide valuable advice for page layout, navigation menus, site elements, image selection, and advertising. This book is essential reading for anyone who is serious about doing business on the Web.
