comment How to enumerate network computers from command line?
Can they be read from Active Directory? I have a PS script that gets the list from AD.

If you do it everytime you could also change the Recycle Bin Properties and check the box "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted." Then you could uncheck "Display delete confirmation dialog" to be more dangerous. I like the shortcut you mentioned, sometimes I let it go to the recycle bin and other times I know I don't need it any more.

In my Windows XP PrtScn by itself takes a screen shot of the entire screen, both monitors. All I need to do to get a screen shot of the active window is Alt-PrtScn. Using the Ctrl key doesn't seem to affect this at all.

comment Why HDD rotate at 7200 rpm?
"At one time all PC hard disks spun at 3,600 RPM; in fact, for the first 10 years of the PC's existence, that was all there was. One reason for this is that their designs were based on the old designs of large, pre-PC hard disks that used AC motors, and standard North American AC power is 60 Hz per second: 3,600 RPM. In the early 1990s manufacturers began to realize how much performance could be improved by increasing spindle speeds." After switching from AC to DC they can make the speed anything. 20k rpm drives must be next.

Then where did they get 10,000 from. other than it's a nice round base 10 number? Why not 10,800, or is that the real speed and 10k is just used for marketing?

comment How do I destroy a hard disk?
Many recent platters I have exposed were made of glass, or some ceramic material, good tip.

comment How do I destroy a hard disk?
Good answer. Sometimes you can't use the clear method because the drive is not functional, which forces you to either destroy it or degauss it. If the drive works you could do both, just to make sure. We destroyed top secret paper on the aircraft carrier by first shredding it for short term storage, then when we had enough it was incinerated, then the ashes mixed with salt water (mostly to cool it off) and then chucked it over the side (deep sea), just to be sure it was destroyed.

comment Should I provide Favicon.ico for my website?
I like to do it just to not see all the 404's it generates in the log files, or the web stats.

Why? Because cmd.exe doesn't do ssh.
