Chris Gerling describes how we can use the Windows Automated Installation Kit, a free download from Microsoft, to build our own bootable Windows USB key. This tool is great for repairing borked PCs, more securely accessing a public computer, or installing Windows on optical drive-less ultra portables. Submitted by Moonlit – Show Notes.

Matt Lestock demos DimDim, a web-based collaboration platform that offers media-rich features. It’s a open source “WebEx” alternative that’ll blow your mind. Run it either hosted or install it on your own servers. SysAdmins look out, this little gem will be wowing your boss so sneak a little OSS in the corporation and save a little green too 🙂
We’ll be at Day-Con on the 11th, VA Tech on the 17th, Phreaknic on the 25th and finally back in studio and probably HD the very next week. Stay tuned to Hak5.org for all the details and announcements or follow @hak5 on the twitter.
Oh yes, and thanks for all the help with the donating for Hak5 stickers! We’re getting close to our goals. 🙂
