WinAudit - a shameless plug for a nifty tool

While surfing the interwebs, checking the emails, etc. I came upon a program called WinAudit. It's a FREEware app that can report a lot of things about your machine and output it in a lot of different formats. Straight from their site: "The programme has advanced features such as service tag detection, hard-drive failure diagnosis, network port to process mapping, network connection speed, system availability statistics as well as Windows® update and firewall settings."

Anyway - it's pretty neat. My new employer is a "100% Microsoft Shop", so I'm trying to move more that direction in the things I learn about and use on a daily basis. I'm all for open source, free software for all, and beautiful alternative user interfaces...but managing a 100% Microsoft Shop is surely going to have its peaks. All in all I'm looking forward to the opportunity. Only question I now have...should I switch my Linux server/media box to Windows Server 2003?

If you've got a handy free tool for the Windows world that makes your life easier - leave me a comment or two :)

The great global warming debate

In order for a great debate to be a true debate - both sides must be heard. Do you think you've heard the other side? I bet you haven't. I caught this on Digg Videos today and was surprised I hadn't heard about it before. I suggest clicking this link for the full size, but the mini video is below.
