Feedburner integrated with Blogger.com feeds

Feedburner now offers feeds integration for Blogger.com blogs. Gone are the days when one had to fiddle with the blogger template to replace blogger's default feed source with feedburner's feed link! Just go to the template page now and enter you feedburner feed source. Mind you, this configuration will not replace your default blooger feed source; it'll only redirect that link to feedburner's feed link. Also note that, apparently this configuration redirects only Atom feeds, and not RSS feeds.

This is just the begining of the services users will start to get with feedburner's acquisition by Google. Like, few days ago, feedburner announced two of its previously PRO (paid) services as freely available now - FeedBurner Stats PRO & MyBrand.

Active Directory Explorer v1.0 by Sysinternals

Sysinternals released a new tool for Active Diretory administrators called Active Directory Explorer v1.0

Active Directory Explorer (AD Explorer) is an advanced Active Directory (AD) viewer and editor. You can use AD Explorer to easily navigate an AD database, define favorite locations, view object properties and attributes without having to open dialog boxes, edit permissions, view an object's schema, and execute sophisticated searches that you can save and re-execute.

AD Explorer also includes the ability to save snapshots of an AD database for off-line viewing and comparisons. When you load a saved snapshot, you can navigate and explorer it as you would a live database. If you have two snapshots of an AD database you can use AD Explorer's comparison functionality to see what objects, attributes and security permissions changed between them.
