#$%^ Documents and Settings

I wrote this little batch file to make Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 have a user directory structure more similar to Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Windows 7.

You simply need to run it as a user with administrative privileges and it will create the “User” directory in the root of your drive along with all the other more “sane” directory structures that the newer Windows use — don’t worry, it uses links so that you won’t have two copies of the information, and applications that expect the old structure will continue to work.

There is an older BLOG post that describes how it works:  Revise Windows XP “Home” Directory Structure if you’re interested in the details.

Quotes

For the last several years I’ve made sure a quote a day (often relevant to the day in history) was published on my BLOG… and hope some of you have appreciated the effort it takes to do that.

This year (other than the one earlier today) I’m not going to have a quote of the day that I enter specifically for the day. What I will try to do is make sure that a quote is presented on the sidebar.

I’m thinking about adding a new word as well — not so much because I want to expand anyone’s vocabulary, but because it’s always interesting to see what definition (or quote) randomly appears.


Let me also take a moment to wish everyone the very best… a new year, and new opportunity for each of use to try and make the world we live in a better place for ourselves, our families, our friends, our neighbors, and the billions of people we share this fragile, tiny planet with we don’t know and will likely never meet.

New Years Day

New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
