Yesterday we announced unexpected server downtime and maintenance for a download server used by some of our applications, most notably our technician tools such as d7 and d7II. These issues came earlier in the week when our hosted server suddenly went offline for more than an hour in the night; although it appeared to recover we had […]
Foolish IT Founder, CEO, and Chief Software Architect - After over a dozen years as a computer repair technician specializing in malware removal, I began to focus on my software development hobby, creating tools to assist with the inefficient, repetitive, and mundane tasks PC techs face daily, in order to provide a far more efficient means of getting the job done. I also like preventing malware, but that's another story entirely!

ShadowExplorer (www.shadowexplorer.com) is an awesome application which I’ve used as a PC Technician many times in the past. It is used to provide a graphical ‘front-end’ interface for a rather complicated command line utility called VSSADMIN.EXE (an internal Windows component) which handles “Volume Shadow Copies” of files made by Windows. These are sort of ‘backups’ in a […]
Last night we transferred to a new server and website! Look! Ain’t it purdier! Ain’t it must faster?! Yay!

The dMZ […]
