|Suprise, Windows has a functioning system imaging utility.|
Back almost a decade ago I put together my first really nice gaming rig. It was an AMD machine with all sorts of get up and go. I'll spare all the details here because they are not that important now days. However, as part of this screaming machine I purchased a set of brand new off the press Western Digital Raptor hard drives. These were SATA drives that ran at 10,000 RPM. AT the time, that was insane. They have a brilliant 5.4 second seek time and could just kill any of the 7,200 RPM competition. So why d...
HTC One Google-ish Edition, A How To
Weeks back I spent the day in Grand Rapids at a network security demonstration. A contest between security guys and hackers. It was interesting but basically a big waist of a day. After a couple hour ride home I heading to work to drop off some co-workers that came with me. As we approached work my stomach turned I could have sworn I was going to through up. So I park on the street and ran into the building to find a bathroom. Now I don't know what made me sick that day but I do know that I spent 15 awful m...
Cisco Live, the Half Way Mark
Well it’s my third day in Orlando and my second day attending Cisco Live.

Learning the lay out of the conference and the schedule of the buses and food. Trying to digest all the information of a break out just as you’re walking into another one. Over whelming can be an understatement, especially when at the end of all that you drop i...
Regex, A Love Hate Relationship.
So I’m working on my blog obsessively lately and I realize I’m really going to want to put some code up here since I work on a lot of little script and I tend to spend a lot of time in CLIs of switches, appliances, and my Linux boxes. So in my last post I put together a little code so that I could present the code I wrote to get my unauthorized twitter feed. The need for this got me running down a long and dark hole of regex, which even though its frustrating its still good because I do use it from time to ...
The Site Face Lift Continues
Today I focused mainly on getting the site's look finished up. I'm pretty happy with the layout and the overall stylization of the site. The biggest addition today was finishing up the some things with the “blog list” site which is now the default page of the site. This site will list the latest five, or whatever I decide later, blog post. It list them out newest to oldest and displays the first 512 characters of the post. Then cuts it off and offers you a “More” link that takes you into the old style blog ...
