  • For a week now I have had a warning when shutting down saying that there was yet another update to install on shutdown...

    I did not really check on it for that long, but today I decided to check the auto-update as I was running the computer. There was the installation ready to be run. So I clicked on the button to start the installation.

    After a moment, the installation process stopped with a really weird error:

    Error message: Code 13EC, it's an unknown error.

    It's funny that any programmer would create an error that the computer cannot figure out... Way beyond me.

    This being ...

    My Boring Story

    Microsoft Office is making progress... or... is that really progress?!

    I got a great little surprised when I met face to face with Access 2007 and all the menus were gone. I wasn't warned about that one! Not only are they gone, you MUST use little tiny icons in the place of menus so it takes you an awful long time to learn the icons, but not just that, YOU have to choose which icons will appear on your toolbar.

  • The mouse pad worked just fine for days and "all of a sudden" my Acer, an Aquire R 14 (Acer Touch R3-471T), but it looks like many if not most Acers have the same issue.

    The fact is that I use the Fn + F8 key to mute the speaker all the time, whenever there is an ad in a video, I really have to do that!

    The Fn + F7, which is right next to the Fn + F8, is actually a key one can use to turn the Mouse Pad ON and OFF. Do it once again, Fn + F7, and the Mouse Pad will work again.

    Hopefully you had a USB mouse or like me, you installed Synergy and thus could use your Linux mouse anyway. ...

  • Today I was working on a spreadsheet where I added a time for a calendar type of sheet.

    What I wanted to do is have a column where time increases without having to type each time manually.

    So I needed to add 15 or 30 minutes to the first time.

    Say my first time is 7am, it appears as 07:00:00 AM.

    In the next row (B4), I wanted to do something like:

    =B3+"15 minutes"

    The fact is that LibreOffice saves time and date as a double number where 1.0 represents 1 day.

    So to add just 15 minutes, you need to divide your number by the number of minutes in a day:

    =B3+15/60/24

    Or if ...

  • I just switched my websites from one server to another and noticed that on my main company site (http://www.m2osw.com) I would get a # at the end of the URL. Automatically added somehow. Thinking that could be a bad guy I checked the code and could not really see anything.

    Hitting "Back" once, I noticed that the # would be transformed to #atssh-digg. I don't have anything specific about digg on that page except the AddThis button. That adds Digg among some 150 different systems where you can share my pages.

  • Error about a local certificate?!

    The other day, I got a new certificate from godaddy.com. I installed the certificate by replacing the files and simply restarting Apache. I then checked in Sea Monkey and it worked great. Checking the certificate it told me "valid for another 3 years."

    A few days later I got an error from eFax saying that our certificate could not be verified. Weird... I tried with wget and got the error! Hmmm... I tried again with SeaMonkey, just fine. Then I tried with FireFox, error too! The error with wget is like this:

    ERROR: Certificate verification ...
  • As I was working on a new Report, I had two fields with computations.

    These are easy to handle, for example, for a Total you write something like this:

    =[Quantity]*[Price]

    And you get a product of the quantity and the price.

    That works great. At first I had a very simple query and it looked like there was a problem in computed field, but I still decided to first add the WHERE clause to allow the user to limit the data to a given set of dates:

    WHERE (((Invoice.CreatedDate)>=[Enter start date:])
       AND ((Invoice.CreatedDate)<=[Enter end date:]))

    Notice all the parenthesis. Also ...

  • As I was looking for a COFF Browser today (a tool that would show me the internals of a DLL or EXE file) I stumbled upon a page talking about Assembly Language and the GoAsm tools.

    The page is here: [page was removed]

    Interestingly enough, he has a link to an advanced assembler called GoAsm. This is specifically for MS-Windows and they do not release the source code of the assembler (at least, not that I can see...) But it is still interesting to see such tool suite around. 8-)

  • Problem: Associate, easy! De-associate... but how?!

    The association of a label with another widget is easy to obtain. You want to do that especially if you want to hide the widget or apply some similar effects to it so both, the widget and its label are affected. This is especially true if you hide the widget.
