Altaro Software, a fast-growing developer of backup solutions for Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced that it is giving every Microsoft Hyper-V administrator 50 free licenses of Oops!Backup, their desktop backup solution.
“Following the success of our Hyper-V Backup solution this year, we wanted to give something back to the Hyper-V community during the holiday season” commented David Vella, CEO of Altaro. “Hyper-V admins can give out these licenses to their colleagues, friends and family, for use at work or at home.”
Oops!Backup is a popular desktop backup solution that allows users to preview & restore versions of their files from different points in time.
Any network administrator who uses Microsoft Hyper-V is eligible for the free license keys, they simply need to visit the Altaro website, send in a screenshot of their Hyper-V Manager and expect an email with their respective keys.

Microsoft released a free software called “Mouse Without Borders” which allows you running multiple computers with one keyboard and mouse like Synergy. But the “Mouse Without Borders” brings a lot of cool features and an easy setup.
Use your mouse seamlessly
Drag files across computers
Copy & paste across computers
Share one keyboard across computers
Lock or log into all of your PCs at one time and share screen captures from one PC to another
I think through this update Windows Intune gets the features it needs to be successful. This is a great opportunity for small and mid-sized which not had a Software Distribution in place, to get an easy solution.
A colleague made a pretty cool blog post about svn basic on his blog. Subverion is a software versioning and a revision control system. At work all our program code and scripts, every little piece of code is going in your Subversion repository. This allows you to get back to earlier revisions of the code or simply share and work on code with other employees. Even your documentation is going into the Subversion repository.
On his blog post (German) he shows the basics of subversion, doing a checkout of e repository, adding files, changing files, removing files and more.
svn checkout http://svn.colab.company.com # SVN checkout
svn commit -m "My Message and Changes" # SVN committing changes and new files
svn add /files/*.* # Adding Files to the SVN Repository after this you have to commit that
svn update # Update your local copy
A lot of IDE’s (Integrated Development Environment) like Visual Studio or Xcode have SVN integrated.
In the last article I posted the C++ Code for a simple Bean Machine output. Now I did the same in Powershell. I know this is not really a fantastic Powershell script, but its good to show others how things get done in Powershell.
