Time to Get Involved

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 07:11:00 GMT

Please be part of my app experiment.  I recently submitted my first app to the Windows Store, and I want you to be involved.  No, I am not asking for you to pay for it, because it is free.  No, I am not asking for you to give it a high rating, as that would give me a false sense of the app’s real value and an unfair advantage for competing apps.  So what am I asking for?  And how can you benefit from getting involved?

How to Start in Safe Mode using BitLocker

Thu, 12 Jan 2012 05:42:00 GMT

Here are the steps you need to take if you need to start your Windows OS in "Safe Mode" when the drive is protected with BitLocker.
  • First, be sure you have your BitLocker recovery key handy. This is NOT your PIN. This is a LONG series of numbers.
  • Before the screen appears prompting for the BitLocker PIN, press [F8] (maybe repeatedly).
  • If you pressed [F8] early enough, you will get a warning message as seen here:
    style="padding: 0px; background-color: rgb(252, 252, 252);" title="Preview" height="239" marginHeight="0" src="" frameBorder="0" width="320" marginWidth="0" scrolling="no" mce_src="">
  • After supplying the BitLocker recovery key, you will be prompted with booting options, including the various safe modes.

Top Blog Posts of 2011

Thu, 05 Jan 2012 23:33:00 GMT

The year 2011 was my first full year as a Microsoft blue-badge.

In looking back on all my blog stats, I unraveled a humorous irony as to what became my number one blog post of the year.  Would the top blog of the year have something to do with HTML5?  Would it be regarding a technical article?  Would it be a blog post that stirred heated discussions?  Would the top spot be a post of free resources such as online videos?  Nope. Stay tuned… the number one blog post is revealed at the end. 

For now, please join me in a walk down memory lane as I reveal my five most popular blog posts in descending order:

5 Camtasia Recorder Error: “Failed to start recording: Temp Folder Uninitialized”

No surprises here.  Anytime I blog about a technical error with a product it usually ends up being found by the search engines. 


4 A .NET Love Story

For a post that was originally written in 2005, it still remains my most viewed blog post of all time. Doesn’t that make sense?  It is about love…


3 To MVP, or not to MVP…

This was a blog post in response to an ex-MVP who felt the MVP program at Microsoft had no value in his eyes.  It was not the most viewed blog post, but it claims the prize for the most comments.


2 HTML5 “Web Camp” Videos

Confession time.  I really was hoping this would post would land at number one.  Coming in at number two is not bad considering I posted it in the latter part of 2011.  Nonetheless, recording industry super-stars sharing secrets about HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript techniques still took a back seat to my number one blog post of the year…


1 How to Fix/Repair iPhone With Water Damage

Seriously?  In my first year at Microsoft, my number one blog post is about how I fixed my wife’s iPhone?  *sigh*
