Nasty error. First time I've seen a serious Active Directory error in years.

"When you start your domain controller, the screen may go blank, and you may receive the following error message:

Reincarnation of Phobos

I have been setting up the reincarnation of Phobos as a W2k3 server.

Couldn't RDP to it for a while there, then checked the System Properties and enabled RDP Access :D
Set up the printer.
Set up an _template user with fields with %username% not %user% makes it nice when creating new users :)

Linksys Wireless Routers

Loss of Pass Phrase

When you enter a passphrase into the wireless setup it generates a WEP key from it, it then seems to lose all trace of the passphrase, leaving you with only the WEP key . This has caused problems for connecting people twice now as the passphrase does not seem to work anymore, you have to use the WEP key.

Seems a bit pointless to have the passphrase in the first place, but there you go.
