Free backup software that's great!

Another backup program for you to try. Genie Games Backup is the little sibling of a range of much more powerful backup software but is completely free. Despite being free Genie Games Backup gives you a pretty wide range of options to work with, from zip file encryption to script generation for automatically backing up the important files for specific programs.

New power supply is great!

After last night's fun we picked up a new power supply for our computer. Its a beefy 500Watt thing by the company Antec and had some discounts this week at CompUSA to make it easier to swallow. Anyway, twenty minutes of fiddling later and I've got everything where it should be - the video card is working again and the DLT drive isn't making the system freak out.

Exchange Server login name

For ages I had problem with the login name with the email system they have at work, Microsoft Exchange Server 2000. While it would work fine via the MAPI or web interfaces, I couldn't get it to work via POP3 or IMAP4. Searching online brought up the notion of using a special sequence as the login name, domain\username\mailbox, so it'd be something like geeksrv\Damien McKenna\dmckenna.
