It's a plane, it's a bird, no it's Yves Rossy wearing a homemade jet-fueled wingsuit.

After reading this article from Popsci website about the Wingman Yves Rossy. Anything is possible, he can fly using this homemade jet-fueled wingsuit. Currently the jetpack can fly him to 22 miles distance, not bad at all. Seeing this picture at the left, is a big improvement to the previous aero design. Technology is helping us achieve the impossible.

"A few minutes ago, we're told, Rossy jumped out of a plane 6,600 feet above Cap Gris Nez, on the French side, unfolded the composite wing on his back to its full 8-foot-2-inch span, and hit the thrusters. Assisted by four model-size jet engines and a slight tailwind, he should be screaming toward us at 134 mph, about a mile above the Channel. "It's quite exciting to have half the world's media here," says a local television reporter. She exaggerates, though it's true that this spectacle is being broadcast live to 164 countries by the National Geographic Channel." (2009, Popsci.com)

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
