Beware of Halfords sale - HotUKDeals Forum

Beware of Halfords sale - HotUKDeals Forum: "Last week i was looking for bike carriers on halfords and i found a high mount 3 bike carrier for £ 56.

Earyly today morning i get an email informing me about 50% sale on all items including bike carriers. I check the item in question and guess what. they modified the details to have retail price to £ 89 and sale price to be £ 56.

What's the point of having a sale if the price remains the same."

mounting skydrive in windows home server

two days back i finally removed vista from my workstation at home and converted it to become a home server. I was interested in taking some backups to sky drive.

Good search came up with Gladinet which supports mounting cloud based storage and skydrive is one of them (though most people complain about whs not being supported)

Well i installed Gladinet and on running it i got a Port 80 in use error. Which look up suggested that IIS is the culprit (ofcourse WHS exposes itself through web interface too). Opened IIS, modified default website to consume 8008 instead of 80 and that was all.

Gladinet started up jut fine, connected it up to skydrive and copied 10 gigs worth of pictures :)
