Personally, I am a husband, step-father, grandfather, Christ-worshiper, singer, worship leader, computer programmer, reader, game player, kite flyer, generally all around fun guy (or that fungi?). Professionally, I'm a developer for a major software company. I've been developing commercial software for the last 15 years. These days I'm primarily writing enterprise-scale client software using .NET and loving it!

comment Windows Remote Desktop breaks Alt + Tab in Fullscreen
I wish there was a way to propagate Win-??? commands. Win-E to bring up Explorer, Win-D to show desktop, Win-R to Run, Win-Q to bring up the Linq UI, etc. Any hints there?

That's a good point. In my case it's not, but I'll keep that in mind... thanks.

comment Windows Home Server Restore CD Only Boots to Windows Cursor
It turned out to be a dud hard-drive. Once I replaced the HD I was able to start the rebuild. Now I just have to wait for 4 hours.

comment Ethernet run tests green but won't connect
The router and PC were connected via patch cable directly. The only difference now is that there is an attic run in between.

comment Ethernet run tests green but won't connect
One end of the connection is a PC. The other end is a wired/wireless router. Two devices used to be in close physical proximity to each other and were wired together with a simple patch cable. The only difference now is the new through-the-attic run with wall plate terminators at each end.

comment Software to run a mozy/carbonite “online backup” server?
Huh... didn't know that. Probably because I only have 6 clients at home. Good to know. It such a fluent solution based on Windows Server, I'm surprised that MS doesn't release a WSBS (Windows Small Business Server) which solves the same problem similarly, but with additional client support.
