comment Location map on logged on user
Can you elaborate on that? You want to set up a webpage that displays the locations of your users? Have you considered the privacy implications of this? Disregarding that, if you have a textfile list of locations + a textfile list of users + computers, then building a webpage that reads information from the text files will be trivial, which you can probably build using PHP. :)

comment Vulnerability of EFS (Encrypting File System) on Windows 7
EFS is as secure as the encryption algorithms it uses. If you had no password or a weak password on your laptop, then attackers would be able to gain access using that. Same thing goes if your computer is encrypted with TrueCrypt and they get a hold of the password. Might also mention that even the people behind TC aren't willing to vouch for it's security. Microsoft does vouch for EFS. As for the Elcomsoft product, I'm very sceptical as to how it works, it is probably just a hoax.

comment Vulnerability of EFS (Encrypting File System) on Windows 7
Can't really compare Truecrypt/Bitlocker to EFS as they solve different problems altogether. Full-disk encryption is no use when you need two different systems to share files without anyone else being able to decrypt them. We use service-accounts to encrypt in EFS-enabled folders, and only the service-accounts can decrypt on the other server.

EFS encrypts files using strong encryption stored in certificates in Active Directory. That said, if you use lousy passwords even in AD it's relatively easy to bypass the security. Truecrypt is no more secure, cryptographically.

comment How can I use Vista backed up contacts elsewhere? BUT they were not exported first
Well, both Outlook and Gmail support both CSV and VCF for import, so take your pick! :) A CSV file will contain all your contacts in a single file. VCF-files are one per contact. For CSV you might have to map custom fields to the format supported in the app you want to import into. I tested Outlook import, and it has good custom mapping features. It didn't support drag-and-drop from WLM, which was disappointing. In gmail importing csv from WLM export was a breeze, no custom mapping needed. VCF also retains pictures.

comment Windows 7 64-bit PDF thumbnails problem
It's still in beta isn't it? The Foxit pdf ifilter has received some recognition as it's apparently being used in Microsoft's own hosted services! Look here for the free (desktop) download: foxitsoftware.com/pdf/ifilter I'm installing that now, will let you know how it goes..

comment What was the highest number of floppy disks ever used for a product?
I have a totally working USB floppy drive in my office desk drawer, and you'd be amazed by no litte use it sees these days! :) But still, every so often, I need to install Win XP x64 for instance, and suddenly I have to pop a driver in there.. :)
