I spent a fair amount of time trying to get to the bottom of this and so thought I would share my experiences, and partial successes. This post describes the issues I had trying to stop Crashplan’s upload traffic slowing down everything else on the network while utilising the available bandwidth for very large uploads.

A quick update: The currently available blank database must be attached via Sql2008 R2 instance or later. For earlier versions there is now a revised SQL create script.

I’ve had a blog hosted, mostly free, on WordPress.com for a while. I soon found that the ability to paste code, XML or HTML was severely limited by clean-up functions that would strip-out the data whenever I saved or switched between ‘Visual’ and ‘HTML’ views. Continue reading
When I recently purchased a new Dell E6410 laptop, I also shifted from Windows XP to Windows 7.
There isn’t anything new here, more a case of just wrapping up some posts and tying some events together.
