Moving Blogs

I have moved this blog from to blogger. It took several google searches but I would like to publicize the tool I used. Its a small application where you simply enter your credentials for the location of the source blog site and the destination. Sources supported are LiveJournal, Blogger, and WordPress. Destination sites are Blogger, LiveJournal, MSN Spaces, and WordPress. The only issue I discovered was that it did not move the comments. If anyone has any ideas on how to do that (now after the fact), please post in the comments.

The software is available here.

Terminal Services Session Timeout

We use Terminal Services / Remote Desktop for running specialized software.  Being that the session is often minimized, it is left inactive for extended periods several times a day.  When returning to their session, they find the system locked and are required to enter their password.  The solution to prevent the system from locking out users is to edit the Group Policy affecting those users.  In the GPMC, go to Group Policy Objects, and right click on the appropriate policy and choose edit.  Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Display.  On the right change both 'Screen Saver' and 'Screen Saver timeout' to Disabled.Source: Link
