Windows Log file compression in perl

This script will search the location for all .log files and compress them using NTFS.

Cross-Platform Message Box

I needed a cross-platform message box for Windows and Mac. I tried wxperl because its native on the mac but their is a bug with their MessageBox code on the mac.

This is pretty simple code, but uses each O/S’s native message box API to display a dialog. If you have Yes/No buttons and click yes it will perform the item in action. Which for us opens a webpage. You only need a standard perl installation for this code.

WHS Bliss

I just finished upgrading my DNS-323 NAS to a Acer H340 Windows Home Server NAS.

I am also running Ahsay Off-Site backup software on the unit to backup my Macintosh laptops and a couple of friends computer.

So far no complaints. The media streaming to the Xbox 360 is great also.
