Recently a client had bought a Philips LFH2310/00 Dictation Foot Pedal to go with a Philips LFH9375/00 Dicatation Device

The dictaphone came with SpeechExec Dictate software, however after playing around with the settings, it seems the foot pedal was only recognised in ‘SpeechExec Dictate Pro‘. To purchase this Pro license it was going to an extra cost around £135

One issue I had with this software anyway was that you could not assoicate .DSS or DS2 files with the Philips Speed Exec Player.  This means you would have to save the file on your computer and open through the Philips Speed Exec Player each time instead of just doubling click on the DSS File.

After some searching around, I found some free Software which works with the foot pedal and file assoication for anyone else with this issue here’s the link : http://www.nch.com.au/scribe/index.html

Most Cloud Services such as Frontbridge or Google Apps now require you to verify ownership of your domain with a TXT DNS Record. I recently had to update this for a domain hosted with Easyspace and a quick search around the control panel and google for how to add this proved fruitless. Their control panel only gives you A Record, MX or CName…

Turns out after further investigation, you can’t do this yourself and you either have to raise a support ticket through your Customer Login or a bit quicker – call them on

Support : 0370 755 5066 ( 0370 calls are charged at a local rate in the UK )

Over the phone , they will give you an email to send the request to. This can take up to 3 hours for them to action , then another few hours to propagate

This information would have been really useful on here

http://helpdesk.ufindus.com/faq.php?do=article&articleid=1488 Where they tell you what a TXT Record is , or their DNS Records Page

Hope this information helps someone else!

After helping someone setup dual monitors on their computer with a Nvidia Geforce graphics card on Windows XP, the Nvidia drivers did not allow me to choose Dual View as an Nview option. The only options where to span or to clone. I was usuing the latest graphics drivers off the Nvidea site. I checked the display settings in Windows XP but the Nvidia drivers were only passing Windows XP a single Monitor ( Due to the Spanning Technology)

Tips online sugessted using “regedit” from the command prompt and search for “DisableDualView” and change value 0 to 1 however after a search I couldn’t find this record

Also check in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NVTweak and set the NvCplExposeWin2kDualView value to “0” instead of 1 however I could not find this.

I rolled the drivers back to a previous version noted ( Uninstall the previous nvidia software) : http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-258.96-whql-driver.html , rebooted the machine , and this removed the Spanning Technology and allowed Windows XP to see both monitors and enable dual desktops!

I’ve heard this issue can be caused if you have a grahics card with a DVI and VGA output , and you convert the DVI into back to VGA

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NVTweak and set the NvCplExposeWin2kDualView value to “0”chec

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/

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
