..everything I know, and then some

  • I’m using Windows XP and have a licensed copy of Office 2007.  License notwithstanding, something has gone haywire with the updates for this program.   Every time I turn on my computer I’m prompted to download the same, three updates for Office 2007 which – supposedly – had properly installed the last time I used […]

  • Many years ago I downloaded a freeware program called Julian Calendar. It’s an extremely simple program for Windows, in the view of a lot of people, I suppose it ain’t all that much. But I’ve always been fascinated by dates and like to look up various dates on my computer. This thing will calculate the […]

  • I run numerous websites, most of which are built on WordPress. Over the last few months I’d seen an increase in spam comments on a number of my sites. One site, in particular, was getting about twenty to thirty spam comments a day despite employing captcha in conjunction with the Math Comment Spam Protection plugin. […]

  • I’ve got an older MagicJack and the darned thing works great, especially considering the cost. But, when I install the thing on Windows XP (and, presumably any other operating system) I get a message that files need to be updated for the thing to work. And, first, some files need to be removed. You can […]

  • For whatever reason, none of my streaming music links worked this morning. I have an affinity for smooth jazz and particularly like SkyFM. Anyway, I found working links on another web site. Here they are: List of Radio Streaming by SKY.FM “solo piano” http://www.sky.fm/aacplus/solopiano.pls “piano jazz” http://www.sky.fm/aacplus/pianojazz.pls “bossa nova” http://www.sky.fm/aacplus/bossanova.pls “simply soundtracks” http://www.sky.fm/aacplus/soundtracks.pls “contemporary christian” […]

  • I typically (1) use XP for most of my work (yep – even in 2013), and, (2) I install a lot of crazy fonts for web design work. As a consequence, I often foul up the Arial fonts. Arial bold font becomes italicized, as I recall. Anyway, it’s something like that and it’s a problem […]

  • Download (includes PSD file)

  • I found the directions for doing this on the web, somewhere, but I felt as though the page was poorly written. It failed to note a couple of things which could lead to confusion when doing this install. Anyway, Windows Media Player 11 will work on Server 2003. The steps to make it work, however, […]

Were the moon landings hoaxed?

Okay – if you try to install Magento it would not be uncommon to get the following error: Database server does not support the InnoDB storage engine Obviously, if you’re running your own server you can rebuild MySQL with innodb support – but that’s crazy. I compile MySQL and have a lot of sites on my server – rebuilding would be nuts. Luckily, there’s a workaround for this issue. I […]

This is something which I found worked on Server 2003, and, I presume that it would work on Server 2008. I had a Windows server on one side of town and a Linux server on the other side of town. I wanted to grab a copy, nightly, of a particular mysql database (by just archiving a directory and downloading it, via a Linux cron job at my house). Anyway, this […]
