Well, I’ve been getting by with Office 2007, but decided it was time to upgrade. I use the latest version at work and the small differences were just getting annoying. Read more
I finally switched to the native WordPress Media Library (WML) from NextGEN Gallery for my photographs. I’ve been using NextGEN for a while, but have always been worried about depending on a plug-in for core things like images. This was never more apparent than when they released version 2.0 and that brought down my entire site. A recent upgrade did a similar thing although not as extensive. I will admit, the developers were quick to fixe the issues, but the risks were apparent. Read more
Found another tip on how to get ancient Adobe CS2 software working properly under Windows 8. If you keep getting the registration dialog every time you run Photoshop CS2, next time you run it, right-click the icon on the Start screen and choose Run as administrator. Then go through the registration process once more. This time it should stick and stop appearing.
I’ve been hobbling along with Dreamweaver 8 on Windows 7 and now Windows 8, without the ability to save my FTP settings. It was fixed in the 8.0.2 patch, but the patch won’t install under Windows 7/8. My work around was just FTPing the file manually. Anyways, I found the solution to getting the patch applied in this forum post.
Basically, you manually run the patch using an unwrapped installer file, which you can still get here from Adobe. The trickiest part is that you have to open a Command Prompt running as Administrator. To do this, go to your Windows 8 Start page and start typing Command. You should see Command Prompt pop up eventually. Right-click and choose Run as administrator. Click Yes when prompted with a User Account Control message. Assuming you have administrator rights, the Command Prompt window should appear. (If you don’t, this exercise won’t work.)
So, unzip the patch file to an easy place to get to on your C: drive. In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the patch file directory and type:
msiexec /update patchpackage.msp

One of the coolest things I’ve seen. It writes the time on a whiteboard every 5 minutes!

Awesome home-made trailer for a Star Wars vs Star Trek movie. This would just be awesome if it were real. Plus, it would avoid the embarrassment for the non-SciFi people who get the two mixed up! You know who you are… ;-P[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5S5tBuNJdM]
