Test Posting

We moved, so I'm test posting.  

Fear of Pink

Wed, 22 Oct 2003 12:52:00 +0000

I fear pink. I didn't realize I fear pink until this morning.  As I was stepping into the shower, I noticed I had a pink towel set aside for myself, and I shuddered. I'm a pinkophobe.  I had no idea. I saw my male neighbor, wearing a pink shirt, out in his yard a couple weeks ago.  I...

Messy Blogs

Mon, 20 Oct 2003 10:58:00 +0000

As you can see, I have little control over the current font I'm using in my BLOG. I think we have a newer version of the BLOG editing tool out now.  I'll check it out.  

Windows 95 History

Fri, 17 Oct 2003 18:57:00 +0000

Remember way, way, way back when Microsoft shipped Windows 95 ®? Anyway, we had the control panel option where you'd see a map for the timezone and clickity-click on the map in a timezone area, and that would highlight the map along a border-line and select your timezone for you. Wasn't that cool?  Heck yeah.  I thought...

Hey, I Got a Comment!

Fri, 10 Oct 2003 18:00:00 +0000

I got a real comment (not from Ivanna). 10/01/2003 8:57 AM I see above that you've fixed this already, but IIRC John Robbins' book "Debugging Applications for Microsoft .NET and Microsoft Windows" details how to debug a service on startup. IIRC, it involves setting the ImageFileOptions key in the registry. Mike Dimmick Thanks Mike.  I...

Logging WebClnt continued

Tue, 30 Sep 2003 17:21:00 +0000

Okay, so I finally figured out why the binary wasn't writing to the log file. The code was commented out. I can build it, so I modify the code.  I always copy the file and make a backup of the original.  Then, I go to down on the old file.  Rebuild.  Errors.  Okay.  Some more stuff needed to...

I'm still working on that webclient issue. I think I'm going to have to setup a kernel-mode debug, which is pretty easy to do except I need a second system to do the debugging from.  I think I'll just use my laptop rather than asking the lab to create one for me. Well, looking at the web...

Tricks with SVCHOST.EXE

Fri, 26 Sep 2003 16:22:00 +0000

Well, if you read what I wrote yesterday, you read that I put a service all by itself in a separate SVCHOST.EXE proces. Windows XP SP1 Service of interest:  WebClnt Binary of interest:  WEBCLNT.DLL Problem:  Hangs on startup. If you run a CMD.EXE prompt (command prompt) and type:   TASKLIST /SVC you'll see an output like...

I’m Restricted

Fri, 26 Sep 2003 11:58:00 +0000

Last night, my wife called me into a room for a "private conference."  She doesn't like me sharing about our lives publically. She's very private.  At least, that's what she tells me.  Yeah.  I'd agree.  We've been married 20 years, so I probably know that.  Anyway, I know better than to expect her to change. ...

Work Stuff

Thu, 25 Sep 2003 18:21:00 +0000

Apparently, I'm encouraged to and supposed to talk about what I do at work some in the blog.  Well, we can't divulge sensitive information. Okay.  Work related, huh?  Here's something. I got a DVD ROM image from a large department store IT group a few weeks back.  It had CONFIDENTIAL written...
