Blue Probe It’s the parting gift when you host an alien abduction

There is a hole in the folds of the rubber gasket on the bottom that allows water to drain which is plugged. Gently pull back the gasket from the drum just enough to allow you to get your finger in there and fish out all the hair and gunk clogging the hole. Simple as that.



If you haven’t already done so, replace your laptop’s hard drive with an SSD. Boot speed alone is 5x as fast. I dropped in size because of price, but cloud storage, etc. more that compensates. I picked up a PNY 240GB, 6Gb/s drive from a Black Friday sale. So, now’s the time. Start shopping.



My company has an internal utility to install applications on your laptop. One was failing and not telling me why. Going to the directory where everything was downloaded and double clicking the Setup.exe didn’t seem to do anything. There is an configuration xml file in the same dir as Setup.exe that allows for headless install. Rename it and now run ......

Even YouTube let me down on this one. It is quite simple for this model year.

Pull the wiper blade assembly toward the window and out of the plastic arm. It doesn’t even really snap it it is just ......

So my first round of playing with Android development using Eclipse was OK, but not stellar. I thought I’d try Xamarin Studio (free for small apps/personal use). But after running through the how-to I got to the point where I was to deploy it to an emulator, and here is where the multi-hour nightmare began. So I hope this saves you some steps. There ......

Oracle licensing policies screw you if you are using VMWare. You need to license the whole server host and not just what is partitioned for use by the application server VM. From Oracle Partitioning policy, http://www.oracle.com/us/co... Found on this page: http://www.oracle.com/us/co... ......

Perhaps you are trying to encrypt your laptop and you are not connected to the corporate domain controller – perhaps you need to VPN in.



In Chrome I use Google Maps as a search provider. That way I can just type maps for the URL address, hit a couple of tab keys, and enter the maps address and have the page rendered with my map. Now periodically maps were displaying in Spanish with a "click here to translate to English” option. Huh? My language settings on the browser and within Google ......

Ok so I know it’s in beta. And I should have known when I watched the Nexus 7 and Chromecast press event and the demo showed the browser casting a slide show. But, when I bought one of these little $35 beauties and tried casting a soccer game from ESPN it was pathetic with a 2 FPS rate. Netflix and YouTube are awesome. We’ll see what we get out of beta ......
