It is much too easy to recover delete the sticky notes. Here are two ways to recover:
  1. There may be old information left in the file in the App Data directory:
  • %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt

If your enable System Protection in Windows 7, right click on the folder or file and select "Restore Previous Versions" This is useful for getting back a note from yesterday, last week, etc. Since clicking the [X] on the note actually deletes it, rather than just closing thenote, it can be useful to turn on the Sticky Note delete warning.Open the Registry Editor and navigate to the following key :
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\StickyNotes
  • Either delete the value PROMPT_ON_DELETE or set its value to 1.

    What is the best wireless card to buy ?
    Which card to purchase is a hard question to answer. Each person's criteria is somewhat different, such as one may require 802.11n capability, or may require it to work via virtualisation. However, having said that, if money is not a constraint then the following cards are considered the best in class:

    • Alfa AWUS036H [b/g USB]
    • Ubiquiti SRC [a/b/g Cardbus]
    • Ubiquiti SRX [a/b/g ExpressCard]
    • Airpcap series [USB]

    If money is a constraint then consider purchasing a card with a RTL8187L, RT73 or Atheros chipset, also read this first before purchasing . There are many available on the market for fairly low prices. You are simply trading off distance, sensitivity and performance for cost.

    If you want to know if your existing card is compatible then use this page: Tutorial: Is My Wireless Card Compatible?

          Bare in mind that this is VERY BAD security practice. Make sure your production server doesn't configure this way. 

          Configure Telnet for root logins

          Edit file /etc/default/login and comment out; 

          # CONSOLE=/dev/console 

          Configure FTP for root logins

          Edit file/etc/ftpd/ftpusers and comment out;

          # root
