hah, who's the weirdo with the mobile phone in the background?
Nice thing the show didn't skip a week because of TechEd. Keep it going.

@CHfish: isn't RAR proprietary (ie. if you want to support it in a paid product you have to pay for the license)?
@ 3D things I would print: obviously a "Channle9 Guy" whitch you seem to be lacking this episode.
@universal remote in hotel: tell us if it worked once you do it.
@problems accessing UNC: I have a similar issue that when I type \\machine\C$\folder\ in the win+R prompt it fails, but typing the same UNC path in Windows Explorer succeeds. Try in Windows Explorer, if it works don't bother your admin - it might be by design in windows.
@anti-pick: Most of these options look like just "different settings from around the system put together on one page" and that's completely OK, but when it says "this super hidden undocumented top secret switch", then you DO NOT want to switch it. It's hidden for a reason, it's undocumented for a reason (obsolete or designed for one single internal usage only or a tool for testers that somehow got left in the system).
re: the guitar thingie
seems like a normal external soundcard, like the ones they add to ultra high end headphones.
You guys forgot to update the Part 1 and Part 2 notes with links to Part 3 (the "Part 3" text below Part 1 and Part 2 links).
I'm connecting to two virtual machines in my company via RDP (VM1 and VM2). VM1 is working great all the time. VM2 one day disconnected me. It just closed the RDP session and denied any connection with me (eg. ping). The same happened the next day when I was working from home on a different computer via VPN. When I looked into the event log I saw this: "The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client. Client IP: [my ip]". What is it and how to get into diagnosing it? I found many hints on how it could be fixed but I'm more interested in diagnosing because it happens only with VM2 - other machines don't think I'm a security issue so maybe there's something wrong with VM2. If it's of any help, VM2 is a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise with Active Directory, IIS, SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, SharePoint 2010, Visual Studio 2012 (yeah, I know... too much stuff for 4 gig of RAM) and smtp4dev, no other network services were installed (other than default Windows Server stuff like RDP).
I like how you go through all the sysinternals tools but how about some logging stuff? I'm a SharePoint (soon to be ex-) developer and becoming a SharePoint admin, so I embrace ULS Viewer http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer. Logging is helluva important here and it's actually the first thing I go to when someone tells me there's a problem.
Do you know of any other log viewer/dig-througer (I tried logparse http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logparser but it's kinda too rough for me) that can show me different logs like ULS, IIS, system, event viewer in real time with filtering, additional data (associated process information, correlation id, stack trace etc.) and stuff?
I've also heard of some 'watson' log system, but it's kinda cryptic to me (only saw uls log entries like 'Error encountered, commencing Dr. Watson' or something). Is it relevant or ancient technology?
Any hints on other useful logging toys?
repurposed is bad...
new laptop, but it's maybe because I didn't turn it off since a few days ago. Maybe. I hope.
