Remote Desktop cannot verify the identity of the computer you want to connect to


So Windows Vista has been released and though it is working fine, there are still a few very minor blips. Nothing major, but just a couple small things that bug me, here’s one for ya. I recently installed Windows Vista, and now anytime I connect to a remote computer via a Remote Desktop Connection, I get the following message:

Remote Desktop cannot verify the identity of the computer you want to connect to. This problem can occur if:

  1. The remote computer is running a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows Vista.
  2. The remote computer is configured to support only the RDP security layer.

Contact your network administrator or the owner of the remote computer for assistance.

Do you want to connect anyway?

Is there anyway to disable this screen and just connect immediately?

Update

This prompt screen can be bypassed as follows: Go to the advanced tab and select “always connect, even if authentication fails” in the drop down.

WS_FTP – The Secure Loader used to protect this software has encountered a fatal error


Yet another small quirk with Windows Vista – I can’t use the newest version of my favorite FTP program – WS_FTP by Ipswitch. I was able to install the program fine, but when I tried to run it, I received the following error:

The Secure Loader used to protect this software has encountered a fatal error. Please contact your software vendor.

So what was my workaround? I simply installed an old version (v 9.01) that I had a copy of. Apparently Ipswitch has released a Vista compatible version of WS_FTP 2007, but I think I’m just going to stick with v 9.01 for now… I’m familiar with that one! 😉

In case you’re looking for the Vista compatible download link, you can get it here:

UCSB Soccer National Champions – Isla Vista Aftermath – Hooliganism


So what do you do when you come from a school that never brings home national championships? Well, if you come from UCSB like I do… you find a way to party like nobody else does. I unfortuneately graduated a couple years back, but check out what my little minions did.

You pick up the soccer goal and begin by marching it a mile across Isla Vista and up Del Playa:
