One last XP flashback
Windows XP began its long journey into the history books last week, as Microsoft dropped support of the operating system. In virtually all measures, XP has to be called a success. As the historic run comes to an end though, here’s one last fun bit of trivia. Microsoft tracked down former National Geographic photographer Chuck O’Rear. You might not know Chuck, but you have undoubtedly seen his most famous photograph, the Bliss desktop from XP. Here is a video with the story of that image.
SSH on Windows XP
I don’t think I’m unique in having to manage servers of various flavors while using XP for my desktop machine. It works well enough, but the one big improvement I always make is the addition of ssh for the Windows command line. It makes everything easier. If you haven’t done this, but would like to, I’ve saved you the googling. Computing Tidbits has a great walk-through to get everything up and running.
