Winmail.dat opener

If you get an email in from somebody using Outlook and the attachments are stored in a file called winmail.dat, you can use this free app to open the files

http://www.eolsoft.com/freeware/winmail_opener/


also, here's the way to get the person with Outlook on other end to set it up so it doesn't happen again:


How to Configure Outlook NOT to send Winmail.dat attachments
To Turn off Rich Text sending for messages in Microsoft Outlook

1) Click on Tools
2) Click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
3) In the Send in this Message Format list, select Plain Text, and then click OK.

This will set your default sending method to Plain Text, which will lose your special formatting options with fonts, colors, etc. However everyone, no matter what email program they are using, will now be able to receive your email with no problems.

Good Video tutorial on sysprep

Sysprep can be used to prepare an image of a windows drive before you image it so that it will work on any windows machine (in theory) - I'm pretty sure it just removes all the hardware drivers you install and leaves the generic windows drivers only on the image so that it should work on any machine. There's a very good tutorial here:

how to detect a mobile phone browser with PHP

http://www.andymoore.info/php-to-detect-mobile-phones/

A step further than a virus scan

This is a post about an online sandbox software that doesn't scan a file for viruses but actually virtually runs it to tell you what changes it makes to the system without you running it on your own system. This might also be useful for setting up / testing portable versions of your software.

Weezo - easy portable home web server that can automatically stream videos and audio / webcam etc.

you can just share out some folders in Weezo and then if there's a video file or an audio file the user picks in the browser, weezo will just convert it on the fly and stream it out. It can also be setup quite simply to view your webcam online etc. - There's some SSL encryption too but I can't see it being the most secure software ever. I've used it for simple things on the lan like streaming videos to my WII via opera browser and the quality wasn't great over wireless but you can custom set the quality so maybe over a wired connection it would be better.

Either way, it's worth a look.

Unattended XP install info

I probably should have blogged about this before as I have seen these websites many times but anyway, here goes.

It's possible to take your XP cd and add the latest Service pack, hotfixes, drivers, all your software, tweaks, hacked uxtheme.dll, anything you want really. Then you re-burn your new CD. It's also possible to set the CD to install automatically so you don't have to answer any questions at install time.

Ok so there's a great website at
http://unattended.msfn.org/
and it has details on how to slipstream in service packs, hotfixes etc. and setup an unattended install of Windows XP.

There's also tons of drivers ( driver packs ) on this website:
http://www.driverpacks.net/
that you can slipstream into your XP cd for compatibility with more systems.

There's also a blog post here about how to streamline your XP or trim out the fat:
http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/000639.html
It tells you how to use XPlite to strip out some of the unwanted stuff in XP but be careful as you may need certain things that you want to remove as something else you do want depends on the other thing... if you get me....
also XPlite is payware but there's a program that does similar work for free called nlite and it's availabe here:
http://www.nliteos.com/

if anyone has any more suggestions please comment. I don't think anyone actually reads my blog but it's handy for me to keep track of my links etc.

[edit] Oh yeah one last thing, there's a few ways to do unattended installs over the network. Microsoft RIS (I think it's called Remote Installation Service or something) is one but another probably easier way to do it is documented here:
http://diegostart.dijuremo.org/
With this system you can not only install your OS over the network but I think you can install it with all your software setup and ready to go too. don't quote me on that but have a look at the link above to find out...

One click VNC installers, MSI packages etc..

http://www.vncscan.com/vs/Download.htm

Also have a look at VNC Scan (VENM) on the same page - it's a commercial application but it can be used to manage and I think monitor your network to do such things as :
  • Remotely install VNC
  • Connect to VNC / RDP servers
  • Manage Computer (MMC)
  • See installed software
  • Manage processes
  • Reset passwords
  • Check autoruns
and many more options.. it looks nice... pity it costs money though... :-(

unable to map (net use) lpt1 in windows xp?

this may be a solution. of course if you're the domain admin you could always log in as yourself and just simply disable the lpt1 port in device manager. then you can map lpt1 no problem. This would be much simpler than creating a new group policy etc..

Convert (almost) ANY video file to DVD

All of these pieces of software are free and they are damn good. I have tested this with a 700MB file that had video codec XVID MPEG-4 and MP3 audio but this should work with almost any video filetype imaginable. u could even create a DVD of just audio I think but I can't find any reason to do that.

1. Mediacoder
- add the file, press extension button, click video disc player, set to pal dvd or whatever, set aspect ratio. start. wait for convert (it will convert to MPEG2 vob compliant type file, this could take a while so have a cup of tea), it will put an .mpg file in same folder as original file. by the way mediacoder is very good at converting most video file types to most other video file types too. it has extensions for IPOD video, iphone, PSP, Mobile Phone, etc. etc. - It's class!!!!

2. DVDauthorgui
- on the right, Set DVD format to PAL (if you're in region 2), click add new title, set file type to MPEG with NAV packets and select the converted mpg file. it will make a VIDEO_TS + AUDIO_TS folder in seconds - burn the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders to DVD with ur favourite burner... a good free burner for this would be infrarecorder

TADA!!!!!

Of course u could use Nero to whack together a DVD but I doubt it would be half as compatible with all the different filetypes out there. Plus all the stuff I mentioned is free so u could install it at work or wherever without any worries about licensing. They can even be made portable and run directly from a memory stick but that's another story for another day.
