Like Spinning plates…

Have to mention this, as i have been watching a lot of my favourite songs on YouTube, live versions always seem interesting to me whether i was in the audience to see them live or not.

Check out these gems:

Radiohead – Like Spinning Plates

Radiohead – True Love Waits

David Gilmour – Dark Globe

David Gilmour – Red Sky at Night

David Gilmour – Where we start

Hope you enjoy them.

So to other things, i have been meaning to pop on here to update a few things, interesting support incidents or just trivial details of my day to day life, but i just haven’t got around to it.

One thing i keep coming across is a mis-configuration, or lack of configuration of Exchange 2003, specifically to do with supporting mobile devices. iPhones are of course ever popular and gaining momentum on the famous blackberry, but do you really want to configure a pop3/smtp account on a device that is capable of so much more?

Please remember to install Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2, which opens the door to a whole new world for your mobile users.

Now my mind has emptied completely about what i was hoping to write about. Great.

Ahh yes, Rogue Anti Virus programs, a real pain in the ass. Found a good tool called rkill.exe on bleeping which will halt all malware running on your system, allowing you to download and install the anti malware of your choice, quite keen on Malware Bytes and Avira at the moment, both seem to do a sterling job of cleaning up the mess. Of course users will be completely unaware as to how such programs could have arrived on there pc in the first place… and we of course will just accept that.

Getting into Terminal Services at the moment, something i have so far not used in my professional capacity, and as luck would have it we have inherited one that is on a very very poor network indeed. So lots of scope to look good and improve things. More on this as i learn it..

HP Servers run much better with the Proliant Support Pack installed, just a general tip, but again one that seems to have escaped some admins out there… When will they learn eh?

Moving away from things IT related for a second, really enjoyed UP and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs recently, really good films, UP was just fantastic, hilarious and sad. I think Jonathan Ross summed it up nicely – I spent the first ten minutes sobbing uncontrollably, and the next hour and half laughing my head off. Meatballs was not as funny, but still a good enjoyable family film, with a great performance from Mr T. Sucka.

Had a little flutter on the football over the weekend, 21-1 on Wigan to win, and 6-1 on UTD to win the premier league. Only lost a fiver, but made it a little more interesting for me watching Wigan destroyed 8-0 by Chelski.

Esme is finally over her ‘reflux’ problem , which translated into laymen’s terms, means projectile vomiting anything she ate. So now we have a nice stained carpet.. but thankfully she is much better. I cant believe she is now 7 weeks old, and she really is the spitting image of her sister. She is just starting to smile and it is great to see her and Stella interacting, which so far consists of Stella shaking her hand and saying how do you do?

I will make an effort to update regularly so i don’t have to write these mammoth posts. Heard that before.. right.

And the conservatives said they would scrap the National Insurance tax… some things were just meant to be.
