Cool stuff:

About DNSCheck

Use this DNScheck to perform a technical check on a registered or as yet unregistered (undelegated) domain.

The result page gives details of any problems detected.

For yet undelegated domainnames, you need to enter the the host names and the IP-addresses of the name servers. Choose the ‘undelegated domain test’ tab for this.

About SIDN

SIDN is responsible for the functional stability and development of the .nl ccTLD domain. As well as registering and allocating .nl domain names, the organisation enables Internet users all over the world to make use of these labels at any given moment by means of the Domain Name System (DNS).

Windows “Device Manager” – expand all nodes

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/23


Expanded Windows Device Manager


With the increasing number of devices, it really helps to expand all nodes in the Device Manager’s tree view.

You cannot do this with the mouse, as none of the menu options contain an “Expand All” option.

But since the treeview, is the built-in Windows treeview (used in many places, like Windows explorer), you can use these shortcuts to expand/collapse nodes:

  • Numeric Keypad *: Expands everything under the current selection
  • Numeric Keypad +: Expands the current selection
  • Numeric Keypad -: Collapses the current selection.
  • RIGHT ARROW: Expands the current selection if it is not expanded, otherwise goes to the first child
  • LEFT ARROW: Collapses the current selection if it is expanded, otherwise goes to the parent

This not only works in Microsoft Windows 7: Visual … – Google Books, I think it has been introduced as far back as Windows 95.
