January 14, 2010

I’m developing a set of Nintex workflows for a project that ID are on and while I think Nintex is a superb product, allowing complex workflows to be developed, and deployed into Sharepoint solutions and on the whole it makes me go "Woo Hoo!", there are a few things that make me go "Doh!". Doh! […]

God Mode Doesn’t Work on My Windows 2008

January 11, 2010

I’d been reading about “God Mode” on Twitter and decided to give it a whirl.  I created a folder on my “C” drive and renamed it to “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”.  The icon changed from the normal folder to the Control Panel icon. Clicking the GodMode folder opens up access to just about every setting that you can […]

June 11, 2009

It seems that when I click on a PDF link in IE 8 I get the following dialog displayed in Adobe Reader 8 The PDF sometimes still opens in the browser, I don’t know why.  Using the Check For Updates, accessed from the Adobe Reader, Help menu shows that there are updates to be downloaded […]

Windows 7 & AVG Free

June 11, 2009

In Windows 7 Comes To Wors World I documented my experiences with installing and beginning to use Windows 7 RC.

Windows 7 & TweetDeck

June 5, 2009

The hot thing at the mo is Twitter – everyone, but everyone is Tweeting these days – You can catch me on Twitter as @WorTony 🙂 Anyway, my app of choice for Twittering is TweetDeck.  It’s free and it’s in beta and it has a few issues on my Vista laptop such as it crashes […]

Windows 7 Aero Peek

June 5, 2009

Another nice touch is the Aero Peek functionality.  This allows you to hover the mouse over the show desktop button at the far right of the task bar and see a preview of the desktop without actually minimizing all your apps.  When you move the mouse the “peek” ends and you’re back to how it […]

Vista SP2

May 28, 2009

I’ve been running Windows Vista on this laptop since about January 2008 and in that time I’ve come to hate how slow it is, how things that I used to know where they lived have been moved etc. etc.  I particularly have issue with the performance of Vista when it’s recovering from hibernation and/or when […]
