Elementary, Dr. Solomon!

Mark Russinovich has understandably not blogged for a while, as I daresay he was a little busy with his recently taken role at Microsoft. He breaks this drought in Holmes-esque fashion with this excellent post sleuthing his way through the labyrinthine windows internals using Filemon. The article mentions the simple but very effective technique of loading lengthy traces into Excel to discard time and sequence related columns and using Windiff to quickly find answers.

If I had to name a Windows programmer who has had a huge impact in the developer community, it would be Mark and the essential tools from SysInternals.
