All work and no play … | 28 / 12 / 2011 | 0

Makes Linux very dull indeed. Well the Humble Indie Bundle has hopes of healing this problem, but there are some problems. I bought the pack with the intent of using it only on my Win 7 PC with Steam.  But the Linux installers looked too good to be true.  They were, and they weren’t.  I […]

PowerPoint autoplay, “Live Mode” | 26 / 01 / 2011 | 1

I use OpenOffice 3.  I recently received a PowerPoint, that assumed control of my computer without permission.  Hitting F5 stopped the show, but I couldn’t get out of full screen, save, edit or do any else in, “Live Mode.”  The fix for me was to change the name of the file from presentation.PPS to presentation.PPT.

RE: HP P2015 Printers | 9 / 11 / 2010 | 0

Here’s a quick update to my P2015 story. I have one P2015 that I have successfully repaired by baking the formatter in a toaster oven. I went back and rebaked the formatter a second time and it functions perfectly. I went back to this because I now have a second P2015 that has failed a […]

HP P2015 Printers | 18 / 08 / 2010 | 0

Well we still have 4 out of 6 working.  One non-working unit needs a second formatter. I know this because the printer goes into an error mode that’s not described in the service manual.  The Jam light (sometime the toner light, too) is on at power up and it the network port doesn’t even bother […]

Got Flash? Two weeks with Ubuntu 10.04 | 14 / 05 / 2010 | 0

It’s bad. OS releases are supposed to improve not get worser [sic].  Ubuntu 8.04 was the best release since I started around 6.  I still use 8.04 on my work desktop. I am a dedicated Ubuntu fan, but I feel compelled to complain about a second release where things have not really improved for the […]

Setup Windows Printers from a batch file. | 23 / 10 / 2009 | 4

I’ve got a little free time for a change, so why not write something vaguely useful. I have been scripting printer installs successfully on XP, the release of Win 7 shouldn’t change that procedure (much).  7 still has most of the familiar admin scripts as XP. So we should still be able to setup printers […]

Free (Open Source Software) :: Purchase Orders | 28 / 07 / 2008 | 4

A friend called and asked if I knew of a Purchase Order approval system.  Her vision: Someone in her company logs into an internal web site and fills out a PO.  The PO get emailed to her and she approves (or denies) before forwarding (or returning) the request by email. It sounds simple.  I run […]

WordPress 2.5 | 30 / 03 / 2008 | 0

Hi All, WordPress 2.5 upgrades are in progress. I will be hitting everyone’s site by the end of the week. Though this appears to be a fairly major jump in versions, it is still a pretty simple upgrade. Which means when all else fails, its pretty easy to switch back to the old version. The […]
