During a recent deployment I had had an issue with the registration of a DLL. Part of the deployment process included the registration with RegSvr32. On one computer the registration failed with the error “LoadLibrary failed - The specified module could not be found”. This error was a bit troublesome as the installation process was previously successful on several other computers. I verified the path was correct, the library existed, permissions were correct and more.
I used Process Monitor to trace the activity, filtered on the Regsvr32 process, and noticed that a dependent library was missing. Process Monitor indicated, in the list, the specific file that was not found. In the end I copied the missing library to the computer and the registration was successful.

Did you know that almost all digital cameras (including SmartPhones) save specific metadata, such as camera settings and scene information, within the image (photo) files that they create?
This information is called EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) data. Information such as the camera or phone make, model and image resolution is stored within the photo. GPS enabled cameras may also store location information from where the picture was taken.
whatmyphotosays.com lets you view the EXIF data for photos found on your computer or the internet.
Follow this link to whatmyphotosays.com and see what EXIF data is saved in your pictures.

I have long been an advocate
of sites such as ThinkGeek.com
. As I had mentioned before, I have purchased a number of items from the site. I think the apparel is hilarious. As I was browsing through the latest duds I came across the Wi-Fi Detector Shirt
The Wi-Fi Detector Shirt
is a neat way to detect Wi-Fi signals. I am sure that it attracts a little attention as well. I think I need to get one of these shirts.*Image source ThinkGeek.com

In the academic world (and various other worlds as well) there are a number of tools that are used to detect plagiarism. Plagiarism comes in many forms and if you have a published web site it could be easy for some of your content to show up on another page. The vast number of web sites published makes it difficult to search them all. I came across this cool web site the other day. CopyScape is a web site that allows you to search for copies of your web site on the Internet. I have only experimented with the free CopyScape service, and it seems pretty cool.
