Title: Convert Windows 2016 Eval to Retail
Using your retail key with the ISO's downloaded from Microsoft's "Evaluation Center" should be easy right? You paid for a license so you should be able to just activate a trial... Turns out it's not that simple. You actually need to change your server edition from ServerBlahEvalEdition to whatever edition you have a key for using `dism`.

I've used OpenVPN for several years now. The software is secure, stable, and has a great community - a prime example of Open Source at its best. OpenVPN is easily the best VPN software available. However, I recently moved to Tinc an Open Source alternative VPN. If OpenVPN was working great, why would I change to a completely new network?

Putty is the single best SSH client for Windows. Unfortunately, Putty also has the single worst default color scheme. For example, the default background uses the same color for the black text. Who ever thought that was a good idea? Being the lazy developer that I am, I had to created a custom theme to alleviate these issues.

This is what I hate about browsing the Internet. A user should not have to wait for a page to download. So I made it my life mission to optimise this blog. I am currently averaging 600ms from start to ready. This is largely impressive (top 5% of load times) for a dynamic site such as my own.

[OpenVPN]( is soon becoming the standard for bypassing Internet censorship - and for good reason. OpenVPN is secure, Open Source, and extremely easy to use. Unfortunately, many censoring ISP's are determined to prevent and block OpenVPN. Possibly the only sure way to block OpenVPN tunnels is a method called [DPI (Deep packet inspection)]( What is troubling for many individuals is the fact the DPI works and is now widely used. Although how DPI detects OpenVPN traffic is important I will not talk about it today.

Published: 14 Mar 14
Tablets PC's have been out for years. And now with the release of Windows 8 (now 8.1) laptops with touch screens are on the rise; and for good reason - functionality can be added without reducing usability. My Thinkpad W520 (a very nice laptop) unfortunately does not have a touch screen. So a couple of months ago I purchased my first graphic tablet like this one:
I was amazed at my new found abilities, and to my advantage I now take all my notes paperless. Although the transition was practically painless, there were several issues using a touch screen that's not actually connected to the screen. My largest issue being that the mouse disappears on depending on the program. Right is an example of Microsoft OneNote, my note taking program:
In case you can't see, my mouse is in the middle of the circle. My issue was losing the mouse whenever I looked away from the screen.
I started off using [Pen Attention]( This was the only program that I could find for my uses. Pen Attention basically created a small colored circle around my mouse so I could easily find my pen. A great program, unfortunately I had some issues with lag. When I wrote too fast Pen Attention caused my pen to run roge for a couple of seconds. And when writing notes, this could get quite annoying. The reason I assumed was due to the slightly outdated code (or being written in C++). So no easy solution.
So one night I sat down and re-wrote my own version from scratch with speed and usability in mind. My project worked so well I've decided to release the program under the MIT licence ([link](/mit)). Here is a shot of the mouse running my version:
The program runs in the tray. Just right click to access the settings. It is completely portable (stick it on a thumb drive), saves settings to a file in the root of the program, fast, and efficient. I behold Silvenga's Pen Lighter.
