It was great to see so many of you at yesterday's technical roadshow in Birmingham. Many people asked me what software I was running on the demo machines as they had information listed on the backdrop detailing IP address, hostname et al.

I use a utility named "bginfo" which I downloaded (for free) from

I can also recommend "filemon" and "regmon" as these utilities can be used to see exactly what registry keys and files are being accessed by application - very handy if you want to sandbox a suspect application and see what it's trying to do.

We're back on the road next week taking the show to Harrogate and then the following week we're in London.
