According to Adobe, to use Microsoft Edge as a preview browser in Windows 10, you should do this…
Installing Windows 10 or adding another user that does not have, want or need a Microsoft account? Windows 10 does include a way, albeit not immediately obvious… Continue reading
I am a long-time user of LiveZilla, primarily due to the availability of a Windows app. Aside from some minor quirks here and there, my biggest complaint is not being able to find the version in the Windows/web management user-interface. When I’m looking for the version, it’s usually to see if I’m running a relatively current release (fairly common administrator task). Continue reading
So, I was working on a new theme for an OpenCart store I manage. Since creating it from scratch, I decided to adhere to suggestions from Bootstrap, Google and others that advise loading content-blocking scripts at the bottom of the page instead of in the <head>.
Of course, I ran into the same problem that probably has you reading this article.
How the hell am I supposed to use ‘jQuery’ or ‘$’ before the library is loaded?! Short answer, you can’t. You can however get around the problem with this solution. Continue reading
I regularly use remote access tools such as LogMeIn, RemoteDesktop and TeamViewer to provide remote support for clients all over the country. Since Windows 8 arrived, getting the Windows username from clients has become increasingly difficult. More often than not I hear “I don’t know” or “my PIN is …”, neither of which provide insight to the actual username. Continue reading
Today I had to figure out the most efficient way to generate Emoji from ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 country codes such as US, GB, etc. I opted to go for a for 100% SQL solution.
The most efficient way to convert each ASCII letter to their Unicode Regional Indicator Symbol Letter that I determined is provided below (simplified)… Continue reading
A quick run-through to show you how to adjust the volume of individual Windows applications…
- Right-click your “Volume” icon and select “Open Volume Mixer”
- Slide “Device” to 100
- Adjust “System Sounds” until achieving desired level
- You will hear Windows’ “Default Beep” sound when releasing the slider. If moving the slider with your mouse wheel, click/tap bar to hear the test sound.
- Continue adjusting the volume for other applications
I realize LiveZilla has their own suggestion for performing input field validation, but here is my spin on the process.
Create `validation.php` in your main LiveZilla folder with the following code (update input field IDs accordingly)… Continue reading
I wrote a post yesterday about testing your internet connectivity using a Windows batch file, but since I cannot leave well-enough alone, I decided to keep working on it.
A few things to keep in mind…
- The line “set ESC=” ends with a non-printable ASCII ESC character (ASCII 27; Hexadecimal 0x1B) that may not be visible in your browser. Editors like Notepad++ show non-printable characters.
- If you add “hosts” you should also add “names” – hosts entry will be displayed otherwise.
- hosts index should start at zero with no sequence gaps
- The “for” loop’s “end” should match count(hosts + 1)
I have been having issues with my ISP‘s WiFi router, so I decided to create a batch file I could run as-needed to check internet connectivity.
@echo off cls set "router=192.168.0.1" set /p "router=Enter router IP address or press [ENTER] for default [%router%]: " @ping %router% -n 1 | FIND "Reply" @ping google.com -n 1 | FIND "Reply" @ping bing.com -n 1 | FIND "Reply" echo Press any key to exit... pause >nul
Save that as `ping.bat` and put in somewhere convenient. Then… Continue reading
I was hardening a server this morning and decided my reference for disabling root access within Linux / cPanel / WHM may benefit someone else.
Note: Some may end up here trying to find out how to disable the WHM’s root user login. I do not believe that is possible. Continue reading
