XP not recognizing drivers?

Posted by coldtobi | 23 Jun, 2007, 22:48

Today, a family member had a problem: The XP won't recoginze any USB sticks. Well, he had the problem some time, and it was annoying to always use a digital camera -- witch suprisly worked -- for temporary storage.

Well, today I found the problem: The INFCACHE.1 file, located in %WINDOWS%inf, (with %WINDOWS% usually C:WINDOWS) was somehow corrupted.

The solution: Deleting the file, followed by an reboot. Afterwards, it will be restored by Windows, and then all the stuff is working like a charm.

No the guys are trying to though my spamassassin with a new trick. The message is not attached anymore "in plain text" or inlined as image, instead it is attached as a pdf-file.

The message in the pdf, of course, has not change. Get rich easisily, you can only win, all others are dumb, you too, if you do not buy. (Off course, you know how these stock-spam-scheme works: If not, see here.

But the idea with the pdf is innovtive. It passed my filter, and now I'm blogging about it. Well, there is another detail is interesting, if it is correct.


 Wow, 10k€. Seems that AdWords is less expensive than spamming these days.

The Homepage Next Door

Posted by coldtobi | 22 Jun, 2007, 10:36


Just before, I checked my server logs. First, I thought: Nothing special at all, but then this reference in the log looked interesting: is a service to do a reverse DNS lookup. Basically you can learn, how is living next door, next server, (mmmh, ya,) next home-dir.

I think, I gonna visit my neighbours on the weekend. Hopefully, they're home.
