Discovered a new feature of Windows today.

If you have a service that seems to be playing up, then note down the process ID in the task manager and run the following:

tasklist /svc

Unfortunately, you can have multiple services sharing the one svchost.exe process. If that's the case, then you need to split them off to their own process by doing the following:

sc config <servicename> type=own

You can later make them share the same svchost.exe process by running:

sc config <servicename> type=share

Bah, humbug

Is there anything more pointless than Twitter? Honestly, it's a technology looking for a solution to a problem that nobody experiences. I don't give a damn whether you just flushed the toilet! And I sure as heck don't care if you just connected your bing bong to your flirp flop through a dongle widget over a Facebook status update by using a new RSS twinkle you just wrote. I say summon the fail whale forever and do an end to this in s anity!

You kids. Get off my lawn!
