Currently employed as a web developer in the SF Bay Area.

I am passionate about programming in general and interpreted languages in particular. I like type hinting, but not strong typing. I will almost always choose theory over practice, when given the choice. XML and regular expressions are both Good, but too often used when there are other tools better-suited to the task at hand. I have an almost irrational hatred of Perl — yes, there is more than one way to do it; no, that doesn't mean all ways are equally good.

Okay, I can create and populate a "Remote Desktop Users" group via the console, but how do I grant it access to Remote Desktop?

@joeqwerty — As I said, these systems don't have a "Remote Desktop Users" group. :-)

comment Find the bottleneck: disk I/O on Windows XP
Based on this, the lead suspects at this point are the Windows Search service (was doing lots of reads and writes despite having no files to index) and Java Quick Start. I've disabled both and will put the system through its paces to see if that helped. :-)
