.NET Hobbyist Programmer Staying Confused in a Busy World
Great Amazon deal at $20 off the regular price for Office 365 Home Premium 1 Year Subscription Key Card. This can be used for your upcoming annual renewal as well. For Win7+. The funny part is that they send you a physical card. This would be perfect for a digital delivery, but I guess Microsoft does not trust Amazon that much. EDIT: I bought this, ......

I find Google Chrome, which I have no interest in, is continually getting installed on machines in my house, mostly due to Adobe Shockwave bringing it along as an install package. (Family members are agreeing to the download, not realizing the Chrome is getting dropped as well.) My major issue after uninstalling Chrome is that you can no longer click ......

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE... NT\CurrentVersion and make your changes to RegisteredOwner or RegisteredOrganization as desired. A reboot is not required. Your ProductId ......

You have to love Amazon. They will sell you anything. Get them while they last ......

For a period of time, I have access to both an MSDN and a TechNet subscription. Both offer Microsoft software for download. I wondered what the similarities and differences were between the two subscriptions. I copied the two download lists into Excel and aligned them. Most of the material I would never use. Some products I have never heard of. I present ......

My last post related the sad story of a dead HP MediaSmart Home Server. This time, I will relate the steps I took to configure the Synology DS1511+ for use. To avoid unnecessary typing, I recommend this post to provide the basic details. It is written for the older DS1010+, but the process is the same for the DS1511+. … OK, now that you have read that, ......
