Tumblr Needs a Fail Whale

Tue, 28 Jun 2011 05:34:40 +0000

First things first. I think Tumblr is great... Especially for the price (free!). I moved over an old dormant domain (TechOnABudget) to it from a self-hosted WordPress site and am using it for a new domain (ComicsViews). However, like Twitter, Tumblr goes over capacity now and then. You get the fail message seen in the […]

Windows Live Essentials 2011 Service Agreement Expired Aug. 31, 2010

Mon, 30 May 2011 05:47:48 +0000

While checking to see which Windows Live Essentials components were installed on my new notebook, I noticed that the Microsoft Service Agreement for it expired on August 31, 2010. Does this mean that we are no longer bound by the agreement?

Uninstalling EasyBits & Other Add-ons in Skype

Mon, 30 May 2011 05:28:22 +0000

Blog Technical has an item about removing an unasked for and unwanted Skype add-on named EasyBits. [Update] Skype installs EasyBits Go CrapWare on your systems without users’ prior knowledge My recollection is that there are a bunch of add-ons that can be declined when installing Skype. However, that aside, the Blog Technical articles goes on […]

SanDisk U3 Launchpad Removal Tool (URL changed again)

Tue, 29 Mar 2011 19:41:32 +0000

SanDisk makes great flash storage products. But, I really hate the U3 flash drive app software they install on every thumb drive. It has the malware-like behavior of installing itself with asking permission. I even noticed it had installed something called U3agent on my Mac that was chewing up processor resources. I must have missed […]

Blast from the Past: Hauppauge WinTV 401 (1998)

Mon, 28 Mar 2011 00:32:10 +0000

I find something interesting (and usually old) everytime I decide to clean my work area. I found this Hauppauge WinTV (model 401) board in its original box this time. It could process cable TV and FM signals. It could even serve as a video conferencing system when combined with a video camera and Microsoft NetMeeting […]

Finally Fixed my WordPress Theme Update Problem: Here’s What I Did

Sun, 13 Mar 2011 08:11:01 +0000

I've had a WordPress theme update problem for perhaps a year. However, I've been too lazy to fix it until now. Here's what the problem looked like: - I tried to update my theme from the WordPress Dashboard in a self-hosted installation - The error message I saw after any automated update attempt was: Incompatible […]

Microsoft Fuse Labs Social Gadget: Why Does Justin Bieber Show Up in an H1N1 Topic Search?

Thu, 14 Oct 2010 20:21:20 +0000

I'm taking a look at Microsoft Fuse Labs' SocialGadget which provides a way to visually explore Twitter topics. I used the search term "H1N1." You can see the result in the screenshot to the left. It turned out that "Justin Bieber" and "H1N1" were tweeted together 19 times in the past 3 days. That was […]

Windows 7: Hibernate vs. Hybrid Sleep

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 00:17:01 +0000

I've been running Windows 7 on my home PCs for a long time (since early beta releases). But, I finally got around to getting my office PC updated from Windows XP to 7 this week (new-ish PC with old OS). I noticed that hibernate was not available as a shutdown option on the upgraded PC. […]

Kindle for the Web (beta)

Tue, 28 Sep 2010 16:13:57 +0000

I've been reading a bit more than usual thanks to my relatively new WiFi-only Kindle. I've found it even easier to read than using the Kindle app on my iPad, iPhone or Android phone (which I thought was excellent before getting my Kindle and still consider very good after using the Kindle). Now, there's a […]

How To: Install Adobe AIR & Seesmic for AIR on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04LTS

Sun, 04 Jul 2010 07:24:19 +0000

I've been running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04LTS on my Acer Aspire One for a couple of weeks now. It still doesn't auto-connect to known WiFi access points after booting or awakening from sleep. But, other than that it has been running reasonably well. So, I decided to try to install Adobe AIR and Seesmic for […]
