For those who can not afford a copy of WinRAR (www.rarlabs.com) to open .rar files a compatible freeware program is available called LZArc (not to be confused with LHarc from the good old Amiga age).

It will not win any awards for its simple but useful layout, but hey you cant get everything for nothing.

Download it from here

Just finished installing my first Microsoft Windows 2008 Enterprise server, nice 🙂

Most disturbing is that it will actually go into production right away, we need some of the new group policy management features..  oh well..

Looks quite nice btw.

So you cant wait to try out SP3 for XP or SP1 for Vista!?

Well, there is a way to squeeze your way into the MS-Beta program 🙂

I am still thinking about it, I had some problems with IE7 beta so I am slightly reluctant.  For XP users however it should according to some posts be quite a boost in performance.
