My name is AC Brown.  BBSes and video games taught me how to tinker with computers, and I quickly developed a love for computers. I worked at a small desktop computer shop at 16 and continued working with desktops through college. Since graduating, I’ve worked with small businesses, big businesses, and even the US Government. I decided to amass a collection of over 20 Industry certifications. Most of my certifications are for Microsoft technologies, and this blog focuses on that.

With this blog, I’m trying to explain both the how and the why behind things. I’ve seen many IT environments where admins made changes without understanding what they were doing. It’s my hope that others will use my work to better understand the systems they work with. Knowledge is power and I give it freely. If you have there is something you want to know more about, let me know.

Visit my Profile on Expert’s Exchange if you like, and feel free to leave questions or comments anywhere on my blog.

Additionally, I am available to assist with technical issues as a short term sub-contractor for a reasonable fee. You can reach me at for if you are stuck on a problem involving almost any Microsoft Solution. I love problem solving and am an efficient and capable troubleshooter.

  1. Thank you for explaining “Identity Federation”. I look at multiple websites and no one explained it all. I left each site more confused than when I entered. However, your writing style is crystal clear. Whereas the others probably know what IF means they can’t state/write it. Unlike them, you know it AND can state/write/explain it. Thank you!

    1. You’re welcome. Writing and communication aren’t exactly common skills in the IT industry, unfortunately. One of my goals with this blog is to make IT concepts accessible for IT professionals and regular people alike. Federation is an especially difficult concept to wrap your head around. I spent 2-3 months beating my head against ADFS several years ago before I finally understood it, and I want to keep other people from going through that kind of torment. I appreciate your kind words. It’s very heartening to know that I’ve helped someone grasp this difficult subject.
