LinkedIn spam with trojan

September 29th, 2010 Comments off

I have gotten a ton of these  emails in the last 48 hours and have to admit I clicked on one.  Not sure what it may have done to my Windows 7 64 bit machine but I will be checking into it.  You might want to pay attention to what you click on as usual.  Even us geeks click on things we shouldn’t!

BlackBerry is finally coming out with a tablet.  Will your company get everybody one of these and a BlackBerry phone?  At least it doesn’t require a new data plan on top of what you are already paying for.

Command line shutdown

September 16th, 2010 Comments off

I recently did some updates to a Windows 2003 Server remotely and there wasn’t an option to do a restart through the GUI.  You can always do a reboot by the command line on machines like Windows XP and newer by using Shutdown.exe.  An example would be – shutdown /r – to do a shutdown and reboot.

Well by gosh, I just found out that little rectangle box to the right of the clock shows the desktop like ‘Show Desktop’ did in XP!
