Long time since I had to fix an MP3 file and then I went to burn a CD for the car…

A little bit of corruption meant the track played fine on the PC but wouldn’t burn as the track length was corrupted in the file.  Took longer to find this programme than it did to fix the MP3 that had the issue…

Would you like to know more?

Win10Build 10074 made my Synology NAS completely invisible to my main PC, still available to everything else on the network.  It’s taken hours of research to find the cause & Solution…

  1. Control Panel >Network and Sharing Centre > Change Adapter Settings
  2. Right click Network Adapter > Properties
  3. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > Properties >Advanced >WINS
  4. Select “Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP” then click OK.

ClassicShellOh dear, another build another terrible Start Menu, this time if you remove the tiles an enormous blank space remains, the list of programs installed is just one gigantic list , oh and if you press WINKEY and start typing to search nothing happens…

Cue Classic Shell Beta to the rescue as I pretty much launch everything by WINKEY and then type the first few characters.

File ExplorerThe usability of Windows 10 File Explorer (previously Windows Explorer) is a mess, making it virtually unusable due to the illogical layout and limitations in in re-ordering.  This is hopefully something they are fixing, but for now you can  do something about it using Regedit…

Win10Not that this isn’t just as simple as using your mouse…

Snapping in Windows 10 is very different than it was in Windows 8 and Windows 7. If you never made the jump to Windows 8, or if you decided to revert back to Windows 7 after you realized you didn’t like Windows 8 one bit, snapping windows in Windows 10 will seem even more different.

windows8logoI would not be surprised if this were true given how terribly Windows 8 has been received, I like it’s speed, but that’s about it.  The interface(s) are jarring, the lucky charms are ridiculous on a standard PC or laptop and the flat, aero free look is both boring and almost the same a Win 3.11.  Oh, don’t get me started on the ludicrous tiled Start Page.

If the rumours are to be believed, all of these usability issues will be addressed, I guess we’ll know in a few weeks time.  Oh, yes I am aware you can remove/fix/replace the majority of the items listed above, but hacking an OS to make it usable seems a bit OTT to me.

Microsoft is aiming to deliver a “technology preview” of its Windows “Threshold” operating system by late September or early October, according to multiple sources of mine who asked not to be named.

Would you like to know more.

plockb75I’ve been using KeePass for a 5 or 6 years now and it makes generating secure passwords and retaining them safely very simple.  Additionally it stores the web pages they may refer to as hyper-links.  You can also run it from a USB memory stick and have all you details encrypted and to hand on the road.

I was after a simple method of importing my numerous internet passwords and ClockWork’s Firefox to KeePass Importer plugin covers this task nicely.  If you have a lot of saved PW, and you use the import favicon option this takes a little time.

One other top tip, combine this with Dropbox and you have a truly mobile synchronised Database accessible from the Android version of Keepass too! (or your iPhone for that matter)…

Lots of changes in the latest version.

Faster conversion is all it needs to say as far as I’m concerned…

Camera Raw 8.6 is now available as a final release for Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC. This release improves performance when batch processing images, both through the Save button in Camera Raw and when converting images to DNG in the DNG Converter. DNG Converter 8.6 is provided for customers using versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6.

Given that the download page at the Clevo site actually lists an old, none functional driver, I was a little surprised to find newer ones for a different machine that worked just fine over at NotebookDrivers.com this evening.  That said, they list it as 8.0145 and it’s actually 8.0150…
