Have I got a tool for you! (Oh, that sounded wrong in all the “not-safe-for-work” ways…)

So, I had this “little problem” at work with a machine from a remote site. We don’t have high-speed connections between offices, so each office is their own Domain, right? Well, no one could remember any username/password combonations on this machine so I could sign in and fix the other problem.
Luckily, I found the “Offline NT Password and Registry Editor“.

I used the bootable cd ISO and in less time than it took to download and burn the CD, I had reset the admin password and was working. Did I mention this is a free tool?

  2. The Chronicle has a staff that keep track of blogs, especially, blogs in Houston. They found you, possibly through my website, and linked to you at http://chron.com/news/opinion/ Probably because you’re funny and a good writer, Wendi.

    Freaked me out the first time they linked to me, too.
