Lame title I know but what else was I going to call it?
Backup week has concluded. I’m a little burned out from testing, editing screen shots, making videos, and writing.
(Do I sound like a whiny Hollywood type or what?!)
Time for a PBR and maybe a nip of Jack.

Just a quick note. 2 of the Windows Gadgets I use have been updated.
Network Monitor Gadget – Updated to version 4.0
SysInfo – Was updated back in February to version 2.4 (I just found out)
For a screenshot of them on my computer click the pic below (I’ve modified the look of the gadgets to my liking):
I get a lot of questions on disk partitioning, or more specifically, how I partition my disks. This post is meant to clarify any questions on the matter.
I’ve spent the last few weeks updating the following guides in preparation for Windows 7 guides. There has been a lot of cleanup, clarifications, and several additions. As the name intimates the XP guide will not be revised again. The Vista guide may follow the same fate. I’ve never been shy about the fact that I did not like Vista. Those who are using Windows 7 know that it will probably leave Vista as just a bad memory. Once 7 comes out I will not have any Vista computers left (only 1 left now). At any rate, I hope you enjoy these guides and that they may be of some help to you.
The service pack cleanup tool has been renamed for SP2. The command is now compcln.exe.
Run this command from the command line. After running this command you WILL NOT be able to uninstall SP2.
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 has been released to the general public. These downloads contain both Vista SP2 and Server 2008 SP2.
These should appear via Windows Update today.
*edit 14:26 (EST) – It is on Windows Update now. I’m downloading it and installing on my last Vista machine (all others that had Vista are on Windows 7 now). My download (x64) is 567.3 MB.
