comment Where is the login history for Windows XP?
Looks like logon auditing wasn't enabled, so I guess I'll go turn that on now. Thanks.

comment Where is the login history for Windows XP?
Thanks. I've filtered by login name and I don't see any login events, or events for today even. Any other ideas?

And how would I search for those events? The event viewer logs are rather lengthy.

comment Recommendations for a two port KVM switch
Whoa, that is pricey. Switching video and audio independently looks like a very enticing feature. Thanks.

comment How can I force other users to log out?
Ha! Neat. I'd never heard of this command before. Is it available on all systems? Sure looks like it beats killing their shell process.

comment Can a VMWare Server 2.0 virtual machine be “unvirtualized” to physical hardware?
Thanks for the links. PowerConvert looks very promising as an easy to use solution but the VMWare migration document looks like it will do the trick. Thanks.

Nice point on the unknown hardware. In any case I'm looking to avoid the whole "install the programs" I want scenario since it's not convenient thing to go through.

comment Can a VMWare Server 2.0 virtual machine be “unvirtualized” to physical hardware?
Yes, I'd thought of just moving the VM to its own dedicated VM host. In fact that's what will probably happen if the VM needs more resources a shared host can't provide. But I have to think of those edge cases as well, if only briefly.

comment Can I “register” python scripts to execute on Windows?
Thanks for taking a look. :) I guess if I want to avoid the additional typing I'll have to have a set of aliases or something.

comment Which file system to use for portable hard drive shared among different operating systems?
@Zoredache Almost there. I'm thinking two partitions, a FAT32 holding the various file system drivers for each OS and the other an NTFS holding my files. I guess until Apple ships something like MacFUSE with OSX I'm going to have to live with installing it.

Re: Running without the file extension: Not a big deal. But I see my problem now. It works as described in cmd.exe but silly me, I'm trying to run it that way in the bash shell using Cygwin. smack But thanks for your help. :)

Does the redirection bug the FAQ mentions for Win NT exist in Windows XP? I ask because Windows XP is based on NT, correct?

NTFS-3G looks promising. I'm curious if there is a way to use it on Mac OSX and Linux without actually installing anything. Perhaps running them in user space? Might be a pipe dream. ;)

The article is for IIS 7. Does it apply equally as well to IIS 6?

comment How do you do production IIS website depoys?
The version control system is appealing but for web sites that require compilation it might not work out too well. Unless a compiled version is kept under version control of course.

comment Linux command line best practices and tips?
Yes! Learn the find command. Find mixed with xargs, sed and awk makes for a file processing juggernaut!
