This week on I’m Smarter Than You Radio

What with New Order breaking up (again), I figure we should send them off with a bang. As such, this week there will be a TON of New Order tunage. Really, a ridiculous amount of music. I bet well over half of the songs on the stream will be by them.

New Order Breaks Up. Again.

We’ll see how long this one lasts.

 LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – British rock band New Order, which arose from the ashes of post-punk band Joy Division in the early 1980s, has broken up, according to a Web posting by the group’s bass player.

“I’m relieved really hated carryin on as normal with an awful secret so lets move on shall we?” Peter Hook wrote in a blog published on Wednesday on his MySpace page.

Hook first revealed the split as an aside during an interview last weekend with Manchester radio announcer Clint Boon, when he said, “… me and Bernard (Sumner, New Order singer/guitarist) aren’t working together.”

Hook and Sumner have been working together since the mid-1970s, when they co-founded Joy Division, the gloomy combo best known for the mournful single “Love Will Tear Us Apart.”

After singer Ian Curtis hanged himself in 1980, the pair — along with Joy Division drummer Stephen Morris — formed New Order, and recruited Gillian Gilbert on keyboards.

The group issued its debut album in 1981, and went on to enjoy enormous success throughout the decade with such singles as “Blue Monday” and “Bizarre Love Triangle,” and albums like “Power, Corruption and Lies” and “Low-Life.”

New Order was less prolific during the 1990s, as its members took on side projects. The band’s most recent album, “Waiting for the Siren’s Call” — a follow-up to 2001’s “Get Ready” — debuted at No. 46 on the U.S. pop album charts in May 2005. It did better in Japan, opening at No. 3, and in Britain, at No. 5.

“Humanity” EPCD for Front 242 project 32CRASH

FRONT 242’s vocalist Jean-Luc De Meyer joined the alien technology experts of IMPLANT (Len Lemeire) and VIVE LA FETE ex-drummer (Jan D’Hooghe) for a travel in time to the year 2107 in order to assault and destroy the malevolent Universal Order enslaving mankind and plundering the planet’s resources. After having witnessed some of the disastrous consequences of its brutal and senseless exploitation of the Earth, such as inter-dimensional crashes, planet-scale deliberate poisoning, altering of the human psyche as well as the random falling apart of matter, the mutant viral entity 32CRASH is about to start its first assault against the Reigning Evil. Triggered from the center of the Earth, the multi-dimensional conspiracy has the power to create enormous damage and to free mankind from its most dangerous tyranny ever. 32CRASH is the new (de)generation of a music branch once thought virtually extinct, now bound to cause massive chaos to the Universal Order through electronic holograms and self-replicating viruses, and to prevent it from sinking the world further into the endless darkness.

 A straight and challenging retro/futuristic EPCD with bonus remixes by FRONT 242, S. Komor (ICON OF COIL, etc.) and DIGITAL COALITION. Extensive mass manipulation has been initiated at a level from which there is no possible return. Will the nightmare is about to stop… or to get worse? Check 32CRASH live at work at all best Summer festivals this year before the release of their full length album: “weird news from an uncertain future”, the most ambitious release ever created by men… Alfa Matrix ( ) is currently accepting pre-orders for this release.

Tracking Down a Bad Password on the Domain

Ever run into the situation where an account on your domain starts getting disabled due to bad password attempts, and you can’t figure out where it’s coming from? For example, you just changed your domain password and your account suddenly starts getting locked out every 15 minutes. Usually that’s because there is still some service somewhere running under your old password (of course, you know better than to ever run a service under your logon account, right?) and you can’t easily find it. Follow these instructions and it’ll help provide clues to where the problem lies.

Auditing should be enabled on the domain level and on the domain controller organizational unit. By setting it in both locations, you avoid the situation where the policy on the domain controller organizational unit (OU) overrides the one set at the domain level.

·                     Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 domain.

·                     The Audit Policy section is located in the Default Domain Policy, under Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, and then Audit Policy.

·                                 Account Logon Events – Failure.

·                                 Account Management – Success & Failure.

·                                 Logon Events – Failure.

·                                 Process tracking – Success (only relevant on Windows Server 2003 domain controllers)

  • Increase the event log size on all domain controllers involved (PDC Emulator and the two DC’s affected within the site) in the lockouts to handle the additional audit events that will be generated when auditing is enabled.
  • Set the Maximum log size to 10,000 KB or more, and the retention method to overwrite events as needed.

You then will need to enable NETLOGON logging on all 3 DC’s as well.  To do this:

1. Start the Regedt32 program.2. Delete the Reg_SZ value of the following registry entry, create a REG_DWORD value with the same name, and then add the 2080FFFF hexadecimal value. 


3. At a command prompt, type net stop netlogon, and then type net start netlogon. This enables debug logging.

4. To disable debug logging, change the data value to 0x0 in the following registry key:


5. Quite Regedt32

6. Stop Net Logon and then restart Net Logon.

The log for this is located at: %windir%debugnetlogon.log

Once this is done, wait until a lockout occurs.  Once lockout occurs, review the security event and netlogon logs from all three DC’s.

Guillain Barre, Part 2

Here is another clip of someone who had Guillain Barre and she had it much worse than I had it. I never had a tracheotomy or 10 days that I don’t remember.
