Lately Windows XP Pro and Home is loosing connectivity to the mapped drive or sometime the user has to double click on on Z drive to initiate the authentication process. In some cases the “remember password” check box is not there either. Which means you have to type username and password every time you reboot. I have looked around for a solution and haven’t been able to find anything yet.
In some cases it has been asking for authentication even if i give permissions to “Everyone” on the local and shared permissions. If you run the network setup wizard and enable file and print sharing at the end it may work. It didn’t work on every case for me, very random.
I was looking to buy a ticket from Baltimore to Chicago and I thought I’d give a try Bing’s Travel section of search. They claim to know when it’s the right time to purchase a ticket. So the first advice was to wait, and I signed up to get updates on my email and here is the first email I got after few hours:
I never liked the original Kindle or the second generation. Kindle DX caught my attention with the native PDF support and 9.7″ screen. Now, the device that I think can compete and maybe even kill Kindle, if they market it right, is Touch Book made by a startup Always Innovating.
One tweet caught my eye and I had to take a look at it to see for myself. Benj Arriola over at Business OnLine posted that when you search “Microsoft” on Google you get more results than if you searched “Google” on Bing. While that is true I seriously don’t think that’s a negative thing, especially when Microsoft spent about $200 million in ads to send a message that Bing will find you the result you need and not get you lost in results, which it will happen with Google, Yahoo ore even Bing.

I just got a new office in downtown Baltimore and I needed to get my own internet. I was debating between Verizon DSL or Comcast. I like comcast speed, but not the price. Since I use skype for my office phone I didn’t need anything else but a broadband connection. Continue reading “XOHM modem port forwarding”
I have used 1and1 for a while now, I really don’t have a problem with their hosting plans, they’re cheap and reliable, a lot of space and bandwith, their MySQL limit to 100MB is not cool but it’s something you can live with if your site doesn’t have a lot of content.
Few days ago I registered this domain and it took good 4 hours before I could use it. Then as soon as the domain was availble I changed the DNS settings to use zoneedit.com name servers and that took almost 24 hours to change. That’s what my issue with 1and1 is. They are very slow to apply DNS changes. Continue reading “I need a plan to move away from 1and1”
I jut saw this app on android market place and I am surprised its a free application. Reason why I say that is because this allows android users blog from anywhere, like what I’m doing right now. Fortunately the browser on the G1 is pretty good and it can handle almost all ajax calls that wordpress requires but this tool makes it so much easier to work with.
I setup the blog a day earlier and this is my first post. I was tired to actualy write anything after the long setup I went through. Mainly waiting for domain name to be available. I thought why not write about the app that I’m using to post with.
