When you're planning on configuring Fax Services on Server 2008, 2008R2, and their SBS counterparts (SBS 2008 and SBS 2011), it's strongly recommended to install these hotfixes as they resolve intermittent crashes with the Fax Server services.
It's highly recommended to install both hotfixes. On the link above, select the proper hotfix for your version of Windows Server. For SBS-users, select these:
It's possible for Synology devices running DSM 3 or higher to enable support for NTFS ACL's. This allows Windows-users to set up Security through Windows Explorer itself. Most of the ACL types are supported.
NTFS ACL's have to be enabled for a share through the web-interface:
Although unsupported, it is possible to install Microsoft Security Essentials on a Windows Server 2012.
To do this, set the compatibility of the downloaded file to Windows 7, then start that file with the parameter /disableoslimit.
The installation goes without a problem, and as far as I can tell, there are no compatibility issues.
OpenVPN is finally available on Apple iOS!
This means you will now be able to connect through OpenVPN via your iPhone and iPad devices. It is available through the AppStore:

To get this done, you need to install the proper update, downloaded from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917607.
Then, in the application that uses HTML Help, set its compatibility to Windows 98 / Windows Me.
You can disable SSL in fetchmail by adding this line to your rc file:
This restricts fetchmail to only use SSLv2 and SSLv3, disabling TLSv1. Note that this will cause the connection to be unencrypted, unless you use a proper SSL plugin, or SSL is requested explicitly.
If you're missing one of the required Windows Update services, you can use the attached registry fixes to re-register the services in Windows.
You may get error 8024A000 when checking for updates with Windows Update.
If you have recently changed your partition layout (resizing) or put in a new HD, you may get this error. The solution that seemed to work in my case, is to download and install the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver (I know, what has this got to do with Windows Update, right?). After installation, Windows redetects the disks and, for some reason, Windows Update suddenly comes to life again.
It's very easy to stop the currently running backup of Windows Server Backup. Run this at a command prompt:
wbadmin stop job
You can add -quiet to disable the prompt.
An Asterisk TAPI driver, which is actually usable on Terminal Server:
It's not freeware, but is absolutely affordable, and is usable on Terminal Server (multi-user profiles).
Google Chrome can start up in fullscreen (F11) by default. This is done by enabling Kiosk-mode during startup. To do this, set the shortcut to Chrome like so:
Windows 7 has a an application called Sticky Notes, which does just that. The contents and layout of the stickies are stored in a single file: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt
If you wish to backup or transfer your sticky notes, this is the file you need. When restoring, simply place the file in the same location and you're done with it.
If the scan-to function of your networked Brother MFC mysteriously stops working, it may be because of strict firewall settings. The scanner attempts to connect to the Brother ControlCenter software on your PC via a directed UDP connection to your computer. If this is blocked at your computer (by e.g. a firewall), the scan function no longer works.
To resolve, open up port UDP 54925 in your firewall.
For Network PC-FAX, you also have to open port UDP 54926.
