Programmer and Hobbyist. I'll almost always suggest the command-line solution. It's often faster, more consistent, and more flexible. It's not as bad as it looks, I promise. Interests include networking, distributed computing, C/Java and some web programming.

comment Windows equivalent of su
@fixer1234 I don't want to execute a program as the administrator, I want to execute it as a different user. That's the whole point. The transition to another user is requiring the other users password, even when running as the 'administrator' user.

@BigChris I should have said "runas" OR "psexec", meaning I tried each on their own and both prompted for a password to execute a program on this computer as a different user (when running as the 'administrator' user).

@fixer1234 No dice. Even as the administrator user (rather than a user acting as an administrator) I am still prompted for a password when using runas and psexec

@fixer1234 In a *nix environment, if you are running as root you can switch to any user you want. No password is required. A common paradigm is to start a service as root, let it bind to whatever privileged ports it needs to, and then let it fork itself as a user with lesser privilege. This transition from high privilege (root) to low privilege (other user) doesn't require any credentials as root has permission to do whatever it wants.

comment Incorrect Authority Key Identifier on openssl end cert
The spec really doesn't make that clear. The first sentence is pretty unambiguous, but the second sentence seems it indicate it should be the Issuer name and Serial number of the signing certificate. Half of that is duplicate information, but the serial number is not duplicated and is needed to pick the right key if many exist for a given issuer. (RFC2459, Section 4.2.1.1) "The identification may be based on either the key identifier (the subject key identifier in the issuer's certificate) or on the issuer name and serial number."

comment Is there a program that will show a tree of the differences in two file trees?
Revisting this question. I actually like this solution more now than I originally did. I think this would work a lot better for smaller backups however, as multi-TB git repos are rather unwieldy.

comment How to I create an open smb share on a Windows 7 box?
@tinmaru Actually I think I was thinking of a Windows bug because I can't find the article now. Try to use the form smb://username@IPAddress/shareName to ensure that the correct username is used. (It will be your window's username)
