Troubleshooting / debugging IIS
This is more of a memory post for me to remember locations of important KB items, the source for this info is Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.0\r\n Some info on how to use this great new utility from Microsoft called DebugDiag (or IIS Diagnostics), I have already used this on at least two occasions to locate problems with IIS hangs, and to find places to improve performance, some of the information that this tool gives can not be found any other way - and is a great timesaver- like showing exactly what files ......

A few amazing things done with Web 2.0 - Flickr Example
Innovation keeps on hitting me in the face, amazing ideas I wish I had thought of first. Comes a company called Flickr of which I'm sure you all heard about already, many times - and offers a great product, mostly for free. I will not go in to what they offer - its pretty simple and everyone knows about it. In addition to their "main" offering - they also created an open, free API to access all that, along with a scheme to allow other entities to authenticate for you (only if you allow them). Since ......

My new machine...
As I mentioned in a previous post, I got me a new machine - it is working fine. Being a new windows 2003 machine, It downloaded some windows updates that the service thought are good for me. There where quite a few in the list, I just went ahead and installed, I didn't follow the process since in the past I have had good experience with everything just working... The update finished, and the machine requested to restart, which is anoying but understandable... minus the nagging (see here how to avoid ......

A new service I'm trying out - Jot Wiki
In my effort to document / preserve / collect / take your choice the family information, I'm constantly on the lookout for new web sites/services that will allow me to do one or more of these activities, in hope of finding the ultimate application. Up to today I have tried doing this with several different applications blog, web site, picture site, (my hard drive) - this is because I do not want to save this information for myself - I want to share it with the world/family... These services are nice, ......

Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program
My current rant... Skip if you're not interested in hearing me whine... I just moved to the new machine, it took some time to set up but seems to have been worth it. I already saved the time instead of waiting for the previous machine to un-hang... Anyway, I opened MS Outlook, and was greeted by this dialog asking me (and encouraging me) to join the MCEIP, and the recommended option is to join. Why is it recommended? I couldn't figure it out, so I went and read the information provided by MS, and ......

Really annoying - my work machine
My machine has been a loyal servant for the few last years, got it new, and it was fine. last couple of months it is giving me hell. long hangs with no apparent reason (I run AV, and constantly scan my computer for evil beings - not spyware). The only indication for anything is given by the wonderfull Process Explorer which points that “Hardware Interrupts” are the ones giving me the grief. However, I have no special hardware connected anywhere, and no change has been made to my configuration ......
