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

Shutdown storage controllers and power-off the existing MSA. Connect the SAS cables to the output ports on the existing MSA and to the input ports (on the left if you’re looking at the back of the unit) on the expansion cabinet. (Remember to remove the tiny plastic tabs from both ends of the cables!). Power on the EXPANSION unit first! Wait for a couple of minutes for the controllers to init. Power on the MSA. Wait for the storage controllers to boot. Log into the web interface. You should see the new enclosure listed in the tree view. (the LED display on the expansion unit will change to “2” when it’s detected) Create a new RAID-10 virtual disk with hot spare, using the disks in the expansion unit. Create new volumes (and tick the “Map” box to assign LUNs) to fill the virtual disk (VMware can’t support volumes larger than 2TB). Power-on the hosts. Rescan storage controllers to locate the new LUNs. Go to Configuration -> Storage and Add Storage. It will detect the new LUNs and you can create datastores on each.

The Sage Accounts add in for Excel requires 2 Add Ins to be Enabled. One is called the Sage EIR add in and the other is Sage Report Designer for 97. Even for Office 2007 the Sage Report Designer still needs to be enabled. For the add in to show and work you might need to add these Files Manually Sage EIR add in Go to Excel , Options , Add-In’s Go to manage “Excel Add Ins” , Then tick “Sage EIR add in”. If this is not in the list, click on browse and search for this file. You will have to change the drop down of “File Type” from XLA Excel Addin’s to “All Files” C:\Windows\system32\SGXLADDIN.dll Sage Report Designer for 97 Go to Excel , Options , Add-In’s Go to manage “Excel Add Ins” , Then tick “Sage EIR add in”. If this is not in the list, click on browse and search for XLA’s in the directory C:\Windows\system32\ Add any XLA’s and enable them Once these have been added and enabled you should see the Sage Report Wizard in Add In’s. One thing , if you click on Sage Account Line , ( in the add in toolbar) and go to About the version to access Sage Line 2007 Data should be 2.0.0.34. When you install a new version of Sage Accounts , this file gets upgraded to 2.0.0.39 which does not work with Sage Account 2007. So you will need to uninstall any newer versions and reinstall older versions to be able to report data in Excel

When BT install and Setup Infinity they setup 2 boxes. One is the Infinity Modem which is presented with a standard telephone connection and the modems then presents a Ethernet connection. This then plugs into a BT Home Hub to provide the routing and NAT. We needed to install a Draytek Router for a LAN to LAN VPN. Just to note if you provide your own router with BT infinity , it will need to be a Cable router not an ADSL Router. You cannot use the DSL Modem in a normal ADSL/ADSL2 Router to Sync with BT Infinity. Therefore a Draytek 2710 will not work with BT Infinity as it does not have a cable connection , only a 2820 ( Latest Model in the Draytek range ). To set this up on a 2820, if you disable Wan1 ( The Adsl Port ) and then Go into Internet Access , then Enable Wan2 Port for PPPoE. You will need to enter the following username : bthomehub@btbroadband.com the password can be anything. After this the PPPoE connection will start, get the Dynamic IP address from BT and Start working!

A friend has issues with his Entourage crashing when he opened it from scratch. It would the program then as soon as it checked for new email with the IMAP server it would lock Entrouage , and the only way to close it would be using the Force Quit option (right click on the icon in the task bar and choose Force Quit). A few shortcuts can be used to open Entourage with given options. Holding down the ALT Key while clicking to open Entourage will start the database checking and repair options Holding down the Shift Key while clicking to open Entourage will stop the automatic Send and Recieve on startup. I tried a Database Rebuild , with no luck , so I launched the program with SHIFT which stop the program freezing , however it would still freeze up when send and recieve was clicked. I tried a reinstallation of Entourage to no avail. I then updated the to the latest update, then opened up Entourage , right clicks on the Inbox and choose properties. Emptied the Cache and also a Fix Mailbox. Entourage was then able to send and recieve sucessfully

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

I used the existing code here to generate a list of Albums and Galleries from NextGEN Gallery, then used used CSS to produce an Accordion Menu file structure

PHP Code : File Link Here Save this file in your plugins directory : nextgen-gallery/view as “album-list.php” , you can then call this in a wordpress page by using “[album id=0 template=list]” on the page

CSS Code Add this CSS to the bottom of your CSS File in your wordpress theme , edit for your own site color etc File Link Here

Once this has been done , organise your galleries and into albums , then this will start populating!
Link the bullet point image mentioned : http://pariswells.com/upload/arrow.gif
Due to Comments below I have added the whole Style.css based on twenty ten theme : http://pastebin.com/MPmcWzYC and nggallery.css http://pastebin.com/qUhLeCBT just in case it’s changed with a latest version of NextGen

While trying the install Service Pack 3 on the Windows XP Service Pack 2 Computer the following error messaged showed ‘c:\windows\system32\ntdll.dll’ is open or in use by another applications’ I was installing Service Pack 3 Through Windows Update. I downloaded and ran Process Explorer from SysInternals , This let me use the Find function for searching for process’ calling the ntdll.dll file. After looking at the list , and finding out the process with the type “HANDLE” I found the process using this DLL was infact internet explorer ( iexplorer.exe)! Since this update came from Windows Update there was obviously an issue. To resolve the issue , I downloaded  the standalone Network Version of SP3 and made sure Internet Explorer was closed before I reran setup Reran SP3 and the update worked fine!

Recently a 123-reg.co.uk domain account I use, was disabled. The run up to it , was registering a domain under my account for a friend, then getting for a friend who wanted to use it , to pay for it with his paypal. This was fine until 2 years later , when the domain auto renewed and charged the account to my friends paypal account. Unfortunately my friend didn’t want the domain any more and queried the disputed the paypal transaction. Unknown to me, the two sides had arguments and Paypal refunded the money to my friend, and 123 reg disabled the account due to a payment issue! Little did I know that this had happened and upon trying to login to the account one day it would not accept my username and password. Upon retyping a few times I use their password reset facility , which sends an email to the account holder and a link to “Change your Password” Upon clicking on this link it checks an ID value then redirects you to  https://www.123-reg.co.uk/lost-login/change-password.pl ,however after entering the new password twice and choosing “Change Password” button , I was greeted with the following screen, telling me in some unparsed html that there was an error with my request. After trying again twice , it still produced the same error message! After getting a colleague to check their account was ok with password resets and trying on another computer/IP to check if a cache or cookie problem I found the link the email was trying to take me to was : https://www.123-reg.co.uk/rp.pl?t=(idnumber)&a=(username)&id=**%20DISABLED%20** I guess this pointed out clearly what was wrong with my account! After calling up their support number they explained to me what had happened, I offered to pay the domain fee ( £7! ) and they offered to accept the payment for an extra £12.50 Administration Fee via bacs which takes up to 3 days even if it is the same bank! It would have been really useful if 123reg had emailed me or contacted the main account holder (myself) to tell me my account had been suspended. It would have saved some time and investigation, but I am thankful the domain on the account still held it’s DNS records and nameservers in tact which is why it took me 3 weeks to find out something was wrong! Resolution Judging by the look of the url strings , rp.pl file grabs a “t , a and id” value, so rp.pl needs to have a clause in it where if (id = **%20DISABLED%20**) {then send to a correct error page “Your account is disabled , please call this number Monday – Friday to discuss”}

Well having had issues with Mcafee before , this was another issue that took some research to find out what was going on! A friend asked me to check an email problem he was having. He had 2 computers in his house on the same net connection. The email was hosted by GoDaddy, one pc was recieving email over IMAP fine , the other had been , but one day decided to stop. The connection windows in thunderbird brought up “thunderbird refused connection”. At first I removed the SSL connection for IMAP and changed the port to 143. This still brought up the same error. I make sure I could communicate to the imap server and nothing was blocking it router side through telnet “telnet imap.server.com 143” . This brought back the correct IMAP headers so communication was fine which was even stranger. I then used the netstat command to find out what was listening and commuicating in the background. Bingo, I found Mcafee version of svchost.eve was listening on pop3 port 110. I thought this was strange as there was no pop3 email accounts setup on this computer. I unistalled Macfee Internet Security which was on a trial with the laptop and has been disabled, and straight away this fixed the email problem without even restarting! I would like to big up two awesome sites for when you get a new laptop , Decrapifier to remove all the trial rubbish and toolbars you get with a new computer that manufactures make tiny amounts on from the software producers, but loose twice as much with support calls due to it Ninite automated installer for opensource and freeware software
