My favourite is Microsoft's web application stress tool, and Badboy.
Internet Explorer weirdness: How do I adjust my browser settings to avoid the following message: "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display the nonsecure items?"

CFX tags in CF for J2EE

You must restart the server if you tinker with dropping CFX tags into the C:\WebSphere\AppServer\installedApps\cfusion.ear\cfusion.war\WEB-INF\classes
directory. Even renaming a CFX and changing it back appears to require a restart of the server.

Windows XP Administrator Account
In Windows XP, the username "Administrator" does not show up in the list of accounts that can be used to log in. This can be baffling if you are looking for that account.

Trying to do so gives the error "An account named 'Administrator' already exists"

The solution is to go to My Computer, right click, and choose Manage. Then look at Local Users and Groups, and you can see and modify the Administrator account.

262090 - Synchronizing Offline Folders Does Not Synchronize Subfolders
Here is how to synchronise offline files in Windows 2000, including subfolders. For some reason, sub-folders are not set up to be synchronised. So if you choose to synchronise the folder "MyProject" you would never know (by default) that subfolders had been added.
The only weird thing about setting up subfolder synchronisation is that the files are synchronised, but you don't see the subfolders - you have to look at the "location" field to see which folder each file is in; the list is flat.
