Lord I spent an inexcusable amount of time tracking down this error. Maybe because I’m daft as the wall I’m sitting next to, this solution should be obvious, Continue reading

Starting a new business is always exciting. You’ve waited long enough to tell everyone what’s keeping you busy these days. Now your product is all set for the world to see. Get people excited too! Here’s how you do it… Continue reading
It probably is.
Fortunately I did my homework and didn’t fall pray to this scam which seems to be making the rounds again. I was contacted via email with a reasonable request: Continue reading

It seems most to arise with Radeon 7800 series graphics cards but I have seen similar reported for other cards as well.

I discovered this fix for my Slingbox after many attempts to decipher the often disparate advice available and giving up on many attempts. I can’t guarantee this is going to work for you as I only have the one use case to prove but if you have an older Slingbox this just may be the solution to your connection problems. Continue reading
Did I ever pick the right career! I just came across an ad for Developer Auction and was pleasantly surprised and reasonably worried to find that people with my skills are being auctioned to the highest bidder. Mostly this is a good thing and will inevitably drive up the base price for the services, but it is a little scary to compete on such a global level, especially against people that make in a month what I make in an hour.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
