Six must do tips to secure your laptop while travelling abroad
I've just recently come back from a round-the-world holiday (which was blogged about here) and of course I had a travel laptop with me the whole time. Being security aware and generally a little paranoid about people getting access to my data I took a few precautions before leaving for this vacation. Here are six must do tips that any traveller with a laptop should follow before setting foot at the airport.

Preventing SSH client disconnection by remote host
A lot of work gets done using SSH and one of the most frustrating things to happen is when the remote server disconnects you due to inactivity, but while you had your environment set up just the right way for the tasks you were doing. Imagine that you had to have a number of environment variables set just right in your remote shell and you stepped out for lunch only to come back to this...

Windows not recognising digital camera, showing exclamation mark in device manager
After I upgraded to windows 10 and then promptly uninstalled it a number of issues started to surface with the Windows 7 installation that weren't there previously. One of these was that whenever the digital camera, a Canon IXY 220F, was connected to the computer, it would not be recognised and would have a yellow exclamation mark next to it in Device Manager. Uninstalling the camera in Device Manager and reconnecting it to the computer would fix the problem temporarily, but after a restart the camera would not be recognised again. After digging through the Event Viewer I was able to find the cause of this problem and found a way to fix it.

Now that I finally was able to install Windows 10 by jumping the queue, I thought that I'd upgrade a desktop running Windows 7 to Windows 10. Big mistake. I had issues starting Edge, the all new web browser - it would open and immediately close. Control Panel would also crash in a similar manner, but worst of all, Windows 10 decided that one of the accounts on the computer would automatically login even time, even though auto-login was not enabled.

How I upgraded to Windows 10 without waiting in queue
Windows 10 has been officially released for two days, so I thought that was enough time for everyone to have finished downloading it already and that I'll have no issues getting it quickly. However, I was surprised to find out that the upgrade is being rolled out in waves and I couldn't just click and upgrade. I didn't want to give up so easily and a quick search gave me this article that described how to force your windows to upgrade immediately. With no hesitation I went ahead and tried out the steps, there needed to be some correction in the paths that the article described, but I did get there eventually, read on for how.
