XP and Vista Administrator password reset

Monday, October 19th, 2009

I had to reset the administrator password on a new laptop.  I used the following bootable ISO to gain access to the hard drives SAM database.  It is a menu driven, linux boot utility.  Using all the default prompts, it cleared the password and I was up and running in no time.

PAHS Football Game Part 1

PAHS Football Game Part 2

Pottsville Area High School JV Football Game.

I filmed this game using my Panasonic HDC-SD1 Camera.  I used a program called TSMUXR to join the video clips from the camera.  Since youtube has a limitation of 2gb and 10 mins long, I had to split the video into two parts.  For some strange reason, YOUTUBE  is doubling the length of the videos.  I hope this one works.

Vacation in BWI : Video

Footage was taken with a Panasonic HDC SD1 video camera.  Using windows 7, and live movie maker, I was able to publish this video onto youtube.  It first saved it as a WMI video, and then it uploaded it to youtube.  This seems to be the fastest way for me to publish video in HD to youtube.  I have another option, and that is to upload the file directly to youtube, which may provide a better video resolution.
