HFNetChk - windows security tool

  View Printable Version 
WindowsStaying up to date on Windows security patches can be a royal pain. Just as important is knowing what patches you already have on all of your systems. I have already mentioned this tool in the (long) security article Patching and securing IIS4. The tool refers to an XML database (online?) in order to tell you the patches that are available for the following:

  • Windows NT 4.0
  • Windows 2000
  • All system services, including Internet Information Server 4.0 and 5.0
  • SQL Server 7.0 and 2000 (including Microsoft Data Engine)
  • Internet Explorer 5.01 and later
HFNetChk was created by Shavlik Technologies together with Microsoft. Details and download locations are available in Q303215.

Win2k: one laptop, several networks

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAre you using a laptop (with Win2k) on several networks? And only some of them have a dhcp server? Then you should know about 'netsh'. With a command like netsh interface ip set address "LAN" static ip- address netmask gateway metric, you can set the tcp/ip parameters on the interface named "LAN". Difficult, you say? Just put it in a .bat file then. Check out Knowledge Base-article Q242468 for everything about netsh.

MaximumLinux.org: Mac-On-Linux

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxMOL (Mac-on-Linux) is an open source project that lets Linux PPC users run the Mac OS on Linux. The project has been around in some form since 1997 and although I had heard of it before I really never even gave it much thought until I installed Yellow Dog Linux on my PowerBook Ti.

Furbeowulf Cluster Computing

  View Printable Version 
NewsFrom Trygve.com: "When Linux was first ported to the Furby platform, it suffered from significant stability and performance problems, which gave the Furby an unfortunate reputation as being unsuitable for enterprise-level computing. The conversion of the IRS and NASA computing facilities to Furby-based platforms towards the end of 1999 was seen by many as premature and may have contributed to the problems experienced by those departments during 2000 which did nothing to improve the Furby's image in corporate America. To be fair, however, it should be noted that Furbys placed in IRS telephone support positions received no more complaints than their human counterparts and studies showed that they provided a comparable level of accuracy in their answers to taxpayer questions".

Worth a visit, just for the pictures alone. Go there now!

ONLamp: Ripping MP3s

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDI never got into the MP3 thing. The wholesale swapping of music online just makes fair use look bad. Plus, my home computer is comfortably situated in the nexus of several speakers attached to a high-quality home stereo. Why would I trade several hundred CDs and high-fidelity recordings for tiny computer speakers? However, as my work schedule shifted, I found myself having a greater need for lugging CDs to and from work. This seemed to be a decent application for MP3s.

Ripping CDs to MP3 is a fairly straightforward process that is ripe for automation. You need the artist, title, and song list from each CD. Thisinformation is freely available online through a number of online music databases. CDDB is the best-known example. Armed with this information, you copy the audio track to your hard drive using a "ripper." FreeBSD includes several different rippers, and the core OS actually has the ability to rip audio tracks. You then "encode" the ripped file to MP3. Finally, you label the MP3. There are several other trivial functions that can be added to this process to make life later a little simpler, such as writing .m3u index files, but these are the basics.
