Virtual CD-rom

Found this great app called ImDisk. Its a virtual CDRom, floppy disk or virtual hard drive. http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html#ImDisk

It works with XP, Vista and Windows 7 bu thats not all its FREE!!

Very easy to use, has a small footprint and just does what it says on the tin.

Lego plans

Recently got all my old lego from my parents and wanted to bask in the glory days of building lego.  The issue I had was most of the plans I had for the models had been destroyed over time. But there was hope yet! A quick google foud this site http://www.hccamsterdam.nl/brickfactory/ which has plans for lots of the lego models I used to have plus lots of plans for models I didnt have aswell.

Time to loose my weekends to building vast lego models :p

mutiple host names to a server

Was trying to find how to add mutiple host names to a server and at long last have found it.

Solution:1) Add the alias in the registry, using HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\OptionalNamesRef: http://www.jsifaq.com/SF/Tips/Tip.aspx?id=00622 ) Disable the Windows XP SP2 'loopback check' ("authentication failsif the FQDN ... that you use does not match the local computer name"Ref: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;896861

and from the jsifaq link:
Create an alias instead, by editing:
HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
Add Value: OptionalNames REG_SZ String: "Alias" If you make it a type REG_MULTI_SZ, you can add multiple aliases
