Back in the 90s, I had a friend who was older and much more l33t than me. Also, he smoked way too much pot. It didn't stop him from creating a great Tetris-clone together with some friends called Tetripz. Since 1997, a few Tetripz-clones have spawned too, but none all too successful and surely not as nice as the original Tetripz - Tetris on LSD.

Bicky Burgers are a very common kind of hamburger in Belgium, slowly moving up into the Netherlands too. They are popular, but two questions always return:

1) What does a Bicky Burger consist of?
2) Where can you get the sauces.

This post is in English for all those Bicky-lovers out there who can't find information in English about it (there's only a small entry in Wikipedia and only in Dutch) and want their questions answered.

There are two things that make a DPM admin's life easier when it comes to recovery: enabling end-user recovery - which is a simple AD schema update if you're post-Vista (on XP you need to install an agent on the clients), and enabling SQL self recovery for SAs. The latter is slightly more complicated.

Omdat vandaag Windows 8 beschikbaar is heb ik gisteren een Windows Server 2012 domein opgezet waar mijn clients zich kunnen op aanloggen met roaming profiles en folder redirection. Een enkele server is voldoende voor mijn thuisnetwerk, maar die moest ik wel even in elkaar steken want mijn Synology is niet gemaakt om Windows op te draaien.
