Copy Files in Windows Command Console

Most of the time you can use xcopy and for more advance copying you can get robocopy. It is free from Microsoft but a little bit different to use. You can find it in Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools. I personally like to use xxcopy. It contains the same flags as xcopy but has more advanced functions. About 160 different flags which you can set. It is free for personal or none commercial use.

You can download it here:

Example (Copy all new files and folders with the NTFS permissions on f:):
xxcopy *.* f: /H /E /R /X /D

cool free interior design application

I just recently got a new place and I wasn’t sure which furniture I should move and if I would have enough space. After searching the internet for a while I found this nice little application. Sweet Home 3D. It is open source and is written in Java so you can actually use it on Windows, Mac or Linux. It is very easy to use and I could in minutes realize what I wanted.

SSH Tunneling with MAC OSX (bypass firewall)

If you setup a SSH Server and put all the traffic trough it on port 80 you could bypass most firewalls.

Setup an SSH Server on port 80 and bind it with following command in terminal:
ssh [username]@[domain/ip/host] -p [portnumber] -L [bindingiplocal]:localhost:[bindingipremote]

ssh -p 80 -L 2222:RemotesComputerLocalIP:3389

3389 is used on the remote computer for RDP (Remote Desktop Connection). To connect to it trough the tunnel you need to connect Remote Desktop with following syntax:
