Zune manual sync mode lets you control your content

I upgraded one of my Zunes to the latest 3.0 software and was very pleased to read the latest news that manual sync capability is now a part of the Zune desktop software. In the past I had issues connecting my Zune to my home and work PC and losing content. You can now manually control your content and if you connect your Zune to a PC with limited hard disk space this could actually be quite beneficial. You may now delete large movie files from your PC after getting it onto the Zune and then delete it from the PC drive while it remains on the Zune.

IT Dojo: Remove all remnants of the Windows Vista SP1 installation files

When you install Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1, the installation process leaves behind about 800 MBs of original Windows Vista files--in case you later want to remove SP1. Relative to current hard drives, 800 MBs isn't that much space. But, it's still enough space to store a couple hundred MP3 files or a few video clips. Personally, I just don't like useless files taking up space on my drives. In this IT Dojo video, Bill Detwiler shows you how to remove all those old files using the SP1 Files Removal Tool.Once you’ve watched this IT Dojo video, you can find a link to the original TechRepublic article, print the tip, and get links to additional remote support and administration resources from our IT Dojo Blog.

More Vista SP1 answers

Earlier this week I posted a FAQ on Windows Vista Service Pack 1. In the Talkback section of that post and via e-mail, I got a few additional questions. In this follow-up I explain why you don't need a product key and why slipstreaming a copy of SP1 into your existing Vista installation media is (almost) impossible. I also show how to reclaim disk space used by the backed-up copies of your old system files.

February 13, 2006 by IBM patches Lotus flaw

CNET and others have reported on new securitypatches that were already included in Notes 6.5.5 and now this week areavailable in Notes 7.0.1.IBM has issued a patch for ahalf dozen "highly critical" security flaws in versions of itsLotus Notes, which could allow a malicious attacker to execute arbitrarycode remotely when users access files through the Notes attachment viewer.I acknowledge a left-hand right-hand problem here.  Imade a particularly boastful claim about the Notes client not having hadto be security patched over the years during one of my Lotusphere sessions,while we had in fact put such a patch in the most recent version of thecode.  My mistake.  However, I'd still take Notes/Domino's historyin the security space over 20 other enterprise software products -- theythought it out right at the start, and even in this case, the file viewersare somewhat orthogonal to the "core" code.Link: patches Lotus flaw >Link: technotes) >
