IT is not what it was many years ago, I am talking before the evolution of the Internet as we know it today! Back in the days, when you were bumping into a "serious" problem, well hope you had good contacts and/or friends with excellent knowledge or a good library! Last resort there was always the company that made the appliance / software that could help but good luck it they were not 24/7! Not all the problems happened on a Monday to Friday basis between 8pm to 4pm and that's if you were in the same time zone than your service provider!
Time has changed, thanks for the Internet and all these forums, blogs, knowledgebase, online magazines, Companies Website etc. Another excellent source is videos! Over the years I have watched plenty of videos, some are of course way better than other. It actually helped me obtained my A+ and Network+ Certification believe it or not. In this post I thought about sharing my personal "best of" based on their content, accuracy, topics and popularity.
