You won't see google indexing this fix: go through control panel and install every single visual c++ redist. yup, all of em. uninstall the windcomm bluetooth driver. reboot. dell M4600, the battletank.

and that's the last straw

Drupal is a real nasty piece of work. I have been trying it out on the theory that how many people can be so wrong? Well, the answer is, a lot can be wrong.

win764sp1 tcp rwin scaling factor

So thanks to this site ( ) and the smart guy behind it ( Jerry Jongerius ) I truly now believe the only way to monkey with the windows 7 ( 64-bit, service pack 1 ) tcp receive window ( aka RWIN ) is through the rather ambiguously named "heuristics" setting in netsh.

27.5+ looks ... well, I just can't do it. So old fossilized 27.5 technology it shall be!

bigip.conf to csv

For readability, Just like it says, this converts a bigip.conf to a CSV which can be popped into excel for vastly improved readability when going through a large config.
I would say the readability is like a text version of the network map.

set myfh [open bigip_base.conf r]
set mylines [split [read $myfh] \n]
close $myfh
set introduction ""
foreach line $mylines {
set line [string trim $line]
set line [regsub -all "{" $line " "]
set line [regsub -all "}" $line " "]
lappend mylines2 $line
