Striking Red

We got some iris red the other day from Gaffer that does not strike until it is left in the annealer for about 4 hours at 915f.

It was really strange and interesting to have a color you have no idea about how it will look until you pull it out of the annealer.

Just strange. We will have a look at it this afternoon. It is completely clear going into the annealer....just fun.

Microsoft Jet Multiple Vulnerabilities (Ms99-030)

Of course you can't download what they point you to in Retina. They never point you to the right file do they.


Do a search on this one.

jet35sp3.exe

Download that one and it will Fix your dll that nothing else seems to be able to do.

How to fix the Visual Basic 6.0 ActiveX runtimes Code Execution

Download the .msi that you can't get installed.

Crack it open with some software off the net so you can get at the files and just drop them into the c:\windows\system32 directory on top of the others.

It will fix all four of the ones your having issues with.

msflxgrd.ocx
mscomct2.ocx
ComCT232.ocx
MSDatGrd.ocx

If you don't know how to crack open an .msi just look it up on google.

2. Expand System->CurrentControlSet->Control->SecurityProviders->SCHANNEL

5. Select the value Enabled in the Server Folder, if it is not there make a dword.

Citrix and Stigs

Boys and girls this one gets sticky!


#1. If you doing farms you need to make sure to skip the MinEncrytion reg setting in LSA.

#2. If you do set it make sure to hit every single server in the farm and every server that has a published application on it becasue they all need to have the same setting. No Basic vs. 40 bit vs 128 bit. You will have one huge headache.
