Been busy

I haven’t posted much recently as we’ve been busy with the sale of our house and the hunt for our new house. Our new home will be 600m from work, 500m from a nice park, swimming pool and gym, and 300m from the Onehunga cafe area. Even though I usually work from home, being able to walk down to grab some paperwork is going to be much nicer than having to drive for 25 minutes.
Yesterday, I got a good deal on an old Sun Ray 1 via Trademe. I’ll be doing some testing with these in the next couple months and will be comparing SRSS with NX.

Read-only USB Drives for WinXP

Short tip for making USB keys read-only in WinXP:  How To Prevent Windows XP Users From Writing To USB Drives.

Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control.

From there right click and create a new key and name it “StorageDevicePolicies”. In the window on the right then create a new DWORD value and label it WriteProtect, give it a value of “1” and users can no longer write to USB drives. To re-enable this option change the value to 0 and users are again allowed to write.
