Blue Probe It’s the parting gift when you host an alien abduction
Love my iPhone 5s but it was brutal after IOS 11 upgrade. I couldn’t even swipe to answer the phone. If your a fan-boy you can probably do this yourself, but I took it into the Apple Store and they restored it back to base 11.0.3 using the iTunes app on a Mac wiping everything. And bingo, we’re back in business. Every couple of years going back to metal ......

1) After migrating from Win7 to Win10 I couldn’t connect to XE on localhost (127.0.0.1) 2) I did add XE to listeners.ora 3) LSTNRCTL status does not show service XEXDB in ready status. Solution: sqlplus / as sysdba SQL> alter system set local_listener='(ADDRESS=(P... scope=both; System altered. SQL> alter ......

Unless you happen to Google {iPhone stuck saying searching}, then the 13.5 Million results returned may sway your opinion. So, you may want to think twice about that service plan. Apple Store only replaces screens and batteries, but will swap your iPhone 6 for $300.



The install went fine. I can connect when I use Start>Oracle XE>Run SQL Command Line, however, I cannot connect when using a third party client. Running tnsping xe or lsnrctl status also shows things in a failed state. I think the solution has to do with some funky networking stuff where sometimes I’m VPN-ed into a work network and sometimes not. ......

If you see a wire inside your GE Profile dishwasher in the very front, it is your Tub Gasket Spring. Each end of the wire gets placed in the hole in the tub gasket. The gasket goes all the way around the tub, and at the bottom is a little 3 inch tail. It is supposed to point straight out towards you, and the wire will ensure it does. Just put the ends ......

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 ......

Some stuff is just hard to do. In fact so hard, that they just stopped doing it. Which is total crap!

Even YouTube let me down on this one. It is quite simple for this model year. Lift the plastic arm up away from the rear window (only allows for 3 inches or so) Pull the wiper blade out of the plastic arm. Yup, it’s just that simple. Pull the wiper blade assembly toward the window and out of the plastic arm. It doesn’t even really snap it it is just ......
