Microsoft Sector Inspector

SecInspect.exe is a command-line diagnostics tool that allows administrators to view the contents of master boot records, boot sectors, and IA64 GUID partition tables. Additional features include creating hex dumps of binary files and backup/restore of sector ranges. Sector Inspector is a flexible diagnostics tool for safely collecting disk and file system-related data for offline analysis. Sector Inspector has additional features that allow backup and restore of sector ranges for use with other disk editing tools. Because low-level disk access is performed, administrator privileges are required to use most features of Sector Inspector. Get it here.

Determine which port is open on Windows

This application is free. I will try to find other ways too. Get it here.

“Fport supports Windows NT4, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Fport reports all open TCP/IP and UDP ports and maps them to the owning application. This is the same information you would see using the ‘netstat -an’ command, but it also maps those ports to running processes with the PID, process name and path. Fport can be used to quickly identify unknown open ports and their associated applications.”

MyOE Review

MyOE is a free mail and news reader developed using the Microsoft® NET® Framework. Seems their current version supports RSS too. What they say is nice: “Made by users for users”. Screen shots: 1, 2, 3, 4. Looks nice, right? It is too small too! Around 2MB. Give it a try! I am going to try it in minutes to see how it is. Overall, it seems Open Source.

Windows in The Matrix?

Read yourself, I hope they will be only making fun. Because this way of thinking might make troubles in near future.

“Morpheus: Microsoft Windows is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around and what do you see? Businessmen, Teachers, Lawyers, Carpenters…the very minds of the people we’re trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged from Windows. And many of them are so innerred, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will that they will fight to protect it. Are you listening to me, Neo? Or were you laughing at the stupid MSN fairy again?”
