All hail Ken Kovash!
Clip Man
It may be showing my ignorance, but I was unaware until recently of the officially recognized day for celebrating the man, the myth, and the math that is Ken Kovash.  To think that all the time leading up to this point, I had just been satisfied with the joyous feeling in my heart every day I interacted with him.

Ken can be a harsh task-master some times.
"Daniel, where are my numbers from yesterday?"
"Daniel, why are the funnelcake trends low here and high there? You're data are wrong, go find it and fix it!"
But the pain is worth it when I see him take my crude raw data and masterfully sculpt it into bounteous bevies of tables, raging rivers of trend lines, triumphant towers of bar charts, overwhelming ontologies of pie graphs, and gilt-edged grids of treemaps

One must weep to behold it.

Hello Danielle,

In February, 2006 you posted information on how to create hardlinks using fsutil. I used your advice today, and had some success creating a couple of hardlinks on one machine, but not so good success on another machine. I found a utility called hlscan in the Windows 2003 Resource Kit, and ran it on a few of the files. It gave a response that is not all that clear to me, and I was wondering if I copied the data (a few lines of text) that was returned from running hlscan /file, would you be willing to tell me what it means, and whether or not it shows that the hardlink should be working?

Thanks very much, in advance.
