I just realized I hadn’t posted any information about my Dell XPS 12 on the blog. I got it two days after Christmas, so it’s about 4 months old as I post this. Overall it’s a very good device. There are a few areas that need attention, and they can be fixed with software updates. The hardware is great. I opted for the midrange version with specs of: Core i5 @ 1.8 GHz. Using something like ThrottleStop it will run comfortable at 2.3 GHz. 8GB RAM. I would recommend getting the max amount they offer because this is soldered on
Well the fun hasn’t ended yet with Exchange 2013. This time it’s Outlook 2007. If you try to share a calendar you will see this. There is a Microsoft KB article that explains the problem and how to fix workaround it. I’m beginning to think I made a terrible mistake even thinking about installing this software. It is clearly not ready for production, or not ready for an environment that doesn’t have every workstation running all the latest versions of Microsoft products.
I was shopping with my wife a few months ago, and for some reason I asked her if she or her brother ever had a Stomper. She looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language. Turns out she had never even heard of them! Wow, what a sad childhood to have never had the joy of playing with, and ripping apart Stompers! Months go by, and I had completely forgotten about our conversation, but my wife didn’t! She told my mom, and my mom hit eBay. So today I open this and am taken back over 30 years of
We are doing some renovating/moving things around the house and this required a thorough cleaning of the attic. Look what I found! It’s been years since I’ve even thought about it, but man did I spend a lot of my grade school years on this thing! I also found my expansion pack, printer, all my cartridges and floppies and the stuff needed to hook it up to the TV! Can’t wait to see what happens!
After getting my Apple TV all set up I thought it’d be nice to have it display Caller ID information. There used to be a plugin for XBMC that would take care of this, but it seems the new updates (Eden?) to XBMC broke it. So that left me to try to find another way to do it. I came across a blog post on Jim’s Blog where he does something very similar. I think the biggest difference is that he’s using an Ubuntu box and I’m a Windows guy. So long story short, I tried a bunch of different
If you are having problems getting ActiveSync to work with some of your phones check out this post by Nick MacKechnie. I was having the same problem and it turns out it was a permissions setting in Active Directory.
I recently replaced a very old Terminal Server (Server 2000) with a new Server 2008 machine. The calls soon followed! But it wasn’t the usual, “This looks different” or “I can’t find this or that”. It was “I can’t log on!”. Strange! I tested it before telling the users about it, what could be the issue? Well after a quick phone chat with one of the users it was pretty evident. The remote users were, by default, logging on with a local account and not their domain account. OK, with that known how do we fix this? Well thankfully it
