Setting up a Draytek or your own router with Bethere or 02 is different from usual ISP’s. If your draytek’s show time is up and synced but your router is stuck on “Starting PPP” then “PPP Shutdown” when pressing Dial PPPoa , then you might want to try this : Instead of PPPoe/PPPoa Authentication , choose MPoA (RFC1483/2684) and enter the settings here. 1483 Bridged LLC is the right option with VPI: O and VCI: 101 ( You won’t need a username and password ) Settings from O2’s site are here  : http://www.o2help.co.uk/broadband-settings/

When an RDP session is opened from a shortcut it will be displayed on the last screen it was maximised and closed on. Sometimes you might want to change this and hard code it into the RDP File. If you create an RDP Configuration file ( Open up Remote Desktop and configure the settings and server address) Choose options and save the settings to a location. Open up the RDP file and depending on which screen ID you want it to open on add the following screen mode id:i:1  (Screen 1) screen mode id:i:1  (Screen 2) Save the file , and open it to run it on the select screen

Out the box , when you sync up an email account to your Ipad , it will only download 50 Email Messages. For some people this isn’t even a days worth of email! You can of course tap the “Load More Messages” at the bottom of the email list, but there is an easier way. If you go to Settings then Mail , Contacts Calendar then Show Change the number of Emails to your preference – 25 , 50, 75, 100 or 200 This setting may not now show the e.g. 200 emails. This is due to the “Mail Days To Sync” settings If you go to Settings then Mail , Contacts Calendar then Choose your mail account at the top Change the “Mail Days To Sync” to a larger value to match the value of the “Show” email preference

Recently someone had sent an JPG Image over , however on opening the image from Outlook with Windows 7’s  Photo Viewer it was showing the image as a slide show of five seperate images.Initially confused ( as a TIF is the only mulipage image format ), I thought the slideshow program was being clever and scanning through my Temp Folder and displaying all the photos in that folder, however upon reopening the image from a new location this was not the case. I opened the image up with tools such as Microsoft Office Picture Manager and Paint , and only the first page showed. Upon dragging the image into Infran Viewer, it straight away told me the image was infact a TIF image and would I like to change the file extension! I was amazed Windows opened these fine without trying to decode these as jpg instead of TIFS. So you can fool windows into thinking there are multipage jpgs, could be useful for accountants scanner in and archiving documents!

WMV Iconhuge-right-arrow11FLV After capturing a video on a standard straight to DVD video camera ,The file was encoded with ASF ( Advanced Streaming Format ) ,I wanted to stream this on the internet. The obvious format would be a FLV file streamed using a flash player. The main program I use to convert files to FLV is a free program called “Riva FLV Encoder 2.0” . This does not support WMV files :(. I needed to convert the WMV into an AVI , This can be done using a previous version of Virtual Dub (1.3 due to a Microsoft Legal Case in which WMV support for virtual Dub was stopped due to Microsoft owning the codec Error Message : ASF files are not supported) Download Virtual Dub 1.3 After importing the file into Virtual Dub 1.3 , It produced an Error “ASF: Illegal Object Fragment flags 0a in packet at 14c0 packing size = 1f40, pp =12,  send time: 0:00” After more research someone has written a Virtual Dub Plugin for WMV support for the latest version of Virtual Dub ( 1.9.0 ). You can download this WMV plugin by fccHandler Here and follow the readme for installation.  However this still produced errors when trying to reencode to AVI To file the WMV (ASF File ) I used a tool called ASF Tools 3.1 I ran a Basic Repair on the WMV then Re-Encoded it. To do this you will need to download and install: Download and Install Windows Media Encoder 7.1 – wmencoder71.exe Install this MPEG4 codec : http://www.divx-digest.com/software/mpeg4codec.html I then open the fixed WMV with Virtual Dub , set : Audio : Direct Stream Copy Video : Direct Stream Copy Then File , Save As AVI. This can then be converted with Riva FLV Encoder 2.0

Spotify Portable

spotify Well I’ve seen the future of on-line music and its one of those things that will revolutionise the industry.A huge selection of On-Demand music anywhere, hosted in the Cloud, Custom Playlists that follow you anywhere as well as the ability to share with your friends and the icing on the cake, supporting the artist through the same adverts as a radio. I know last.fm has offered this service for a while, but Spotify have simplified the process for your average user who just want Music now with the same clean look and speed of Itunes! After plugging this software to as many people as possible I have found this software can be turned portable. Spotify upon installation installs 2 files to C:\Program Files\Spotify “Spotify.exe” and “Uninstall.exe” Grab a new usb memory stick , Copy the Spotify.exe to the memory stick, Plug into a computer at Work, School, University and Internet Cafe, Login with your Spotify details , and your off again!
