  • Ooops I blamed Windows 10

    I had problems printing to my printer on my desktop machine running Win 10 yet on my Surface Pro that still has Win8.1 the printer worked just fine. Now since I need the printer to print out corporate tax files, I had to solve the problem quickly and reverted my desktop bad to the previous version, Win 8.1. But the printer problem persisted.

    I don't know what my brother did to my computer, but IE kept spawning ads no matter what web site I visited, and I had to turn off the audio. I figured out that I could kill the process using task manager.

    I reinstalled Win8.1 by downloading the setup media that Microsoft has recently provided. It took me quite a while to find the emails with the keys that I purchased, 3 of them. Guessing which key went to which machine was a 1 in 3 chance of picking the right one. I picked the wrong I found out after trying to authenticate. Easy enough to change the key, which then worked on the second guess.

    And every thing is working fine now, printer works, no pop up stuff from IE. I even put Media Center back on, used the key I got for free from Microsoft during the free time period.

    So, sorry Win 10 team, I blamed Win 10 for the printer problem and it somewhat wasn't to blame.

  • VS2015-​Community RC

    I can confirm that 2010 Pro runs just fine on my system with VS 2013 Community as well as VS 2015 Enterprise RC also installed. Even works running concurrently, as I like to do as there are still some features in 2010 that aren't available with the newer versions.

    Also I still am doing Windows Phone 7.8 development, and I also have Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Phone installed (all on my Surface Pro original).

    The only time that one had to un-install was with the first ctp of Visual Studio 2013 or whatever it was called.

    @magicalclick: Lunched ? Did you write your comment on the iWatch?

    It is a remarkable moment in history when computing is no longer considered exiting and has entered the domain of the every day. I grew up in a world where only large countries and corporations had a computer.

    What are the alternatives to Microsoft? Google, Apple. I hate Google because of their political meddling and I have only even touched an apple device once in my whole life, for a few minutes at Simon Fraser University some time in the 1990's. And that one time I tried out my brothers Newton hand held thingy that he took back because...

  • Free WiFi and Coffee at StarBucks

    Ok the WiFi has been free for a few years now but the payment system for all of Starbucks throughout Canada and the USA are out, and I got a free Coffee un-expectantly when I went for my daily coffee house outing. :)

  • There is no escape from the suck-train!

    Shear coincidence I purposely upgraded my sisters Win7 laptop to the latest Win10. I was surprised that my USB 3 docking station works with her laptop with full support even though she only has USB 2. Only my mouse was working with the docking station with Win7. Now two external monitors and Ethernet also works with the upgrade.

    Her office 2000 also still works after the upgrade. Note she has a office 365 subscription as well. She hasn't been using this laptop for several months because it has issues. Track pad is broken. She replaced the keyboard a few years ago due to kids spilling pop. Her two kids have a Surface each now (got 18 months ago). I just have to rewire and solder her power brick cord and she can ditch the APC Universal Notebook Battery system I gave her to supply power. I don't think it supplies enough power to charge the laptop battery when being used, which is probably one reason for "issues".

    Anyways, Win10 looks good.

  • How BIG is big data?

    I apologize to my link to a video earlier titled "Big Data: The Force Behind Weather Modeling". That video was utter crap.

  • How BIG is big data?

    "Each day, more than 20 terabytes of data spanning temperature readings, wind speeds, barometric pressures, satellite images and more, from thousands of locations, is generated. "
