A little while ago, I started to write down my guitar exercises. So here is the first of hopefully a whole lot of free music scores.
I will create a proper PDF bundle when I have enough material to work with.

Are you tired of your chairs always smelling like butt when you had your friends over? Or are you just one of those people with a sweaty bum, always leaving your mark?
Fear no more… I’m not going to recommend a diet or better hygiene… the solution is simple: change your furniture…
The Sweat-Away: Original B Series has arrived (No… the B does not stand for butt…)

In celebration of Star Wars Day (May 4th), this game is currently 60% off on the AppStore ($3,99).
If in doubt, maybe this can persuade you:
- Game Developers Choice Awards’ 2004 game of the year
- BAFTA Games Awards’ best Xbox game of the year
- Interactive Achievement Awards for best console RPG and best computer RPG

I’m not the type of guy that likes to play stealth games. But when I heard of “Third Eye Game” being released on the Appstore ($2,99) something caught my eye; it was described as a noir, paranormal stealth game. That’s quite a mouthful, is it not? What this means will become clear if you choose to continue reading this post.
But first, enjoy the trailer…

Recently, I had some people over and as all of the people I know are smartphone owners, some one passed a perception test and noticed one of my wireless networks: “usa.[myhomedomain.com]“. So, when I was asked why that wireless network was called “usa.[myhomedomain.com]“, I explained that, if a device connects to this particular network, it actually goes online using a gateway somewhere overseas in the US of A. (I live in Europe). I carefully described how I achieved this, and more importantly, how easy it was to accomplish this. Considering most of the people I know are doing something I.T. related, most of them knew all the different parts of the setup, even knew how to configure them. Oddly, it never occured to them to combine these elements into a workable, reliable, secure, geo-unblocking solution.
And that is exactly why I wrote this small article. Everyone knows about VPN’s. Everyone knows about wireless. Almost no one thinks about combining them into dedicated SSID, serving as a secure line directly to another country. If you don’t see the benefits of such a setup, at least admit it is kinda neat.

At last, after waiting for the better part of the year 2014, “Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft” has arrived on iOS. (Yes, I know that Hearthstone has been around for much longer, but I only joined the beta this February) For those of you who have not had the time to read my initial review of the game, here is the link. It is not a universal app, alas. I would have enjoyed playing a quick game on my iPhone while working it in the little boy’s room. IOS users can download the game client here. Android and Windows Phone users still need to wait a bit longer; a release date has not been announced.

Being a huge fan of the Rollercoaster Tycoon Franchise (maybe not so much the 3D release), I followed the news on this next title closely. When I heard Chris Sawyer stated that he was not involved in the production of this descendant, I, and most of the ‘true’ gaming community, feared RT4M would turn out to be a social platform inspired money making scheme that had nothing to in common with the original series, aside from the name.After the game was actually released, on april 10th 2014, I did some research and found that the game got lots of bad reviews, mostly having to do with the in-app-purchases. But willing to give the game a fair chance, mostly because I enjoyed the first Rollercoaster Tycoon back in 1999, I decided to disregard all those preliminary warnings and buy the game. An unbiased review after the trailer… (continue reading…)

To be honest, I did not know if this was possible or not before today. But, to be fair, the issue had never came up before.
We have a remote location with only a limited number of servers. A Windows 2008 domain controller (not an RODC) doubles as print and file server. It also provides us with a “live” offsite (writable) copy of our AD, in case the HQ servers should fail. (note: we have an RODC on each site, but wanted at least one writeable domain controller outside our main campus)
Print drivers needed to be updated and one of our support/helpdesk people offered to this. So we wanted to give him user rights for the day on the server, without compromising domain security.
