    I have a lot of admiration for you guys, for the show and what Microsoft is doing \ has done. I have learnt some fantastic things over the last 100 shows and even ventured in to areas that I never thought I would - bluescreen analysis being a prime example! Many sincere thanks to you gents for putting in that extra time to make the series what it is. Here's to another 100 shows! (My hat tips!)

    Did they really fill that 9-Guy full of cement? That was a bad idea...

    So in that alpha build of Windows on Andrews machine (you can see the white text on the desktop) I can see that the video console lock never kicks in.

    Which is something we which has annoyed us with Windows 8.1 on desktop machines.

    hoping that is something in the next version of Windows.

    We publish safety awareness via screen savers in Windows 7.

    @PeteAUS: You can change the video console lock using powercfg:

    I have my desktop system at work set to 5 or 10 minutes.

    Thanks for the tour !

    You should have persuaded Dave Cutler to play the ghost at the ending scene !

    It would be great if you could get him on film - he doesnt have to talk !

    Hadn't heard that "WNT is one than VMS" story before... :)

    @Ryan Ries: Someone told me once that was so it wouldn't walk off when at conferences and other places.

    @Larry - Yeah, I am in sheer awe at the wealth of content you and the guys put in to these shows - I cannot thank you enough! Strangely though, I never even knew about the series until I stumbled across a link on one of Mark Russ's pages - I took one look and was hooked! Well done gents. (P.S.: I'm sure Andy and Chad will give due credit to all the hidden work you also put in to this channel!) : )
