Software Developer @ jp2code.net

Long ago, I left home and joined the United States Marine Corps where I was assigned the Military Occupational Specialty of Basic Metal Worker (MOS 1316). I loved building things as a welder, but could not see myself doing this until I reached age 65.

After my Honorable Discharge in the early 1990s, I used my G.I. Bill to go to school and received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics four years later.

Using a love of computers since I played on a Commodore 64 at 10 years old and two (2) C++ electives that I had taken in school, I began working in the computer programming field.

The recession following ENRON in 2001 left me working at a remedial job for a little over two years while I brushed up on my skills at a local community college in SQL and first learned what the new .NET Framework was all about.

I have had the pleasure of working as a Software Developer since 2003.

For a short while, I pulled in a little extra income by running a moonlighting business under the name Joe's Welding. Dangerous working conditions and non-paying customers prompted me to sell my mobile welding equipment about the time my son was born.

Today, I am exclusively a Software Developer. My language of choice is C#, and I enjoy working with databases.

If you care to find me anywhere else, just do a search on my screen name: jp2code

Oh, and this drive does NOT show up in Windows Explorer, and I know just about NOTHING about Linux.

But how do I create a user on your local computer and give the credentials to the (human) user of the remote system?

Thanks, Dave. I had to wait until a time when the family wasn't watching TV, but I think I got it! :) After granting Read/Execute, I had to DENY the ability to Delete.

The user is added and is explicitly blocked (see account named Users in original question), but it seems granting Read/Write to Everyone takes priority.

I can block everyone; however, if I do this, I have not found a way to grant permissions to my account on another PC. I am trying to give Everyone Read/Write access specifically so that I can manage files on our Home Theater PC while the family is using it.

comment Recovery Windows XP Active Desktop for Restricted Users
I'm running Group Policy Management 6.0 from my PC (Win7) and I see the settings for the Desktop Wallpaper (Public GPO > Settings > User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Desktop/Desktop > Desktop Wallpaper), but this value appears to be ReadOnly. Does this value have to be changed from the Server?

Thanks! This may be what I'm after. I'm a good C# guy, but not so good at this system administrator stuff - hence why I'm the backup sysadmin here! Let me check into this, and if it works I'll mark as the answer.

comment Windows 7 Media Player and Codecs
@OGChuckLow: The question is how to get this to work in Windows 7 Media Player - not Media Player Classic. "Classic" doesn't support the remotes, TV tuners, and a wealth of other things. It is good, but inferior, it seems. They just don't have the money that Microsoft has.
