Google have joined the web browser race by releasing the beta of their upcoming web browser today: Google Chrome.
I will definately be downloading a copy to try out, who knows it may actually live up to it’s claims!
the Google comic detailing the features can be found here: http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/
Any company that tries to pass off an enterprise server with “a powerful AMD Sempron processor” is not going to get my business…

There is something quite satisfying about using command line to resolve an issue on a remote machine instead of logging into a remote desktop session. Might have to start playing with Linux again…

I know it’s not usually a problem when you have nero or similar installed, but i’ve found that sometimes i need to burn an iso image using a machine that does not have anything installed (like my vista upgrade on my laptop that kindly removed nero for me!) so a quick search and i found this nifty free ISO writer that uses windows native cd burning support! Once installed, right click on an ISO image and choose Copy image to CD and follow the instructions!!

I had an issue with TIF images not opening in the correct application on our 2000 Terminal Server. Simple fix: Right Click on the file, go to properties a Click the change button next to Opens with: text.
Except it’s not there!! Don’t panic, this is on purpose!
A quick google and i found the solution:
On computers running Windows 2000 Terminal Services in Application Server mode, the UI may be locked down so that no one can change file type associations (not even administrators). This is done so that you can only edit the entries programmatically or by using MSI-based applications. This ensures that an inadvertent change in the UI does not effect the global file type associations across the computer running Terminal Services and all of its users. When this policy is enabled, the New, Delete, Change, and Advanced buttons are unavailable on the File Types tab of the Folder Options tool in Control Panel. You can enable this functionality by changing the following registry entry:
One thing i would suggest is that you set the dword back to 1 after you have made your changes to keep things safe.
Just a quick note about something that has just cropped up: I was upgrading one of the really old machines at work with some PC133 SIMMS i found in another dead machine.
After upgrading the memory, it came up with an 164 Memory Error and wouldn’t boot no further!
Don’t panic though, it is just a bios message that tells you that the memory configuration has changed. All you need to do is restart that machine a few times and it will become happy with it’s new memory!

I had to sort out an employees laptop today and discovered that they did not know the admin password to let me logon through recovery console. A quick search later pulled up some useful information about a nifty boot cd that allows you to edit user passwords.
