    The story In the beta 2 ages of Windows Vista, I decided to give BitLocker Drive Encryption a try . It turned out to be pretty straightforward to turn this feature on (using a USB key for key storage as my laptop lacks a TPM) by just going to the Control Panel, Security and the BitLocker Drive Encryption...

  • Why I might start to like tabbed browsing after all...

    I've always been somewhat sceptical on the field of "tabbed browsing". I just couldn't understand why people like it so much, as it were the new Mekka of internet browsing. Putting together unrelated things in one single window seems so unnatural to me (how to find it as an ALT-TAB freak, or better WIN...

  • My first Windows Vista Beta 2 BSoD - Basics of WinDbg crash dump analysis

    It had to happen sooner or later, running a beta of an operating system intensively day after day.

  • MD5 and SHA1 File Checksum Calculcator

    So here's a new tool for my personal toolbox: a simple MD5 checksum calculator for files, written in .NET 2.0. The little "open Visual Studio 2005 trigger" story: A friend of mine reported a problem with his Vista Beta 2 installation which reported corruption, so the obvious first check was to calculate...

  • Add a Technorati claim to your Community Server based blog

    Yesterday I claimed my blog through Technorati . However, this required me to add a little JavaScript to my blog's homepage, more specifically: <script type="text/javascript" src="http://embed.technorati.com/embed/c2mjgt7ag5.js"></script> However, when entering this in the News-section of...

  • Wake on LAN in C#

    Some years ago I created a WOL client for Visual Basic 6 using WinSock stuff which was a pretty nice project that wasn't so straightforward to do. Today, I'm creating a little lightweight management tool to apply configuration changes to computers in a network over night, even when the machines are asleep...
