How is it possible to view this JAMAR Associates Page:

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/JAMAR-Associates/113060104309

without a Facebook account. I do have an account, but am testing for a PC that has no knowledge of a Facebook account.

I can logon to http://www.facebook.com/pages/ , without an account - listing many pages, but JAMAR-Associates is not listed

However, PHCARTS Group - works w/o account  http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=57043373795&ref=ts

What is the URL syntax difference that is important - or maybe groups OK, but not pages?

Every time I click on a facebook link (usually not seeing it is going there) I get a request to login.  When I bypass that, then I don't get to see the specific page the link linked to.  So as far as I can tell, facebook is a user-only exclusive club.  They probably let you get to enough trendy group hot topics to try to lure you into signing up.  But as for specific pages, I have received nothing but blockades -- so I just blow it off.

The long and short is that unless you have an account, you can't get to specific pages or people, only general teasers.  It is basically the same way Twitter works -- no account -- no can see, tough luck!  The way to test access is to INVITE someone to your page (even another computer) -- if an invitation gets you to see the inviting person's page, then you can get in, and this may be what you have to do.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
