Two news posts that have been regularly updated have been temporarily bumped to the top of the news page.


Windows 7 What is the difference between Taskbar and Quick Launch?

Still working on this article.  It mostly documents the Taskbar functionality in Windows 7.  

Windows Media Player 12 tricks

Some tricks I have learned to get the Player to operate a little better and restore some of the functionality from Windows Media Player 11.

Windows 7 Tricks Although not really a full article yet it talks about some of the things I have learned about Windows 7.  

tv and movies hard to remember

Added Guns of Paradise and Running Scared.  Due to the length of the page it may be about ready to split it into two pages.

Oog, just removed a few radio stations from my list of radio stations that I like because they died.

104.9, 93.5, and 93.1

Instead of rock they now play country, sports talk, and oldies respectively...

I removed several dead megatokyo links from my webcomics page: posterous, envelope, blurred, and

I never had a problem with it, but I removed the August Windows update as recommended by Microsoft.

Version 7.1 build 78/ Version 7.2 build 0

Site updates from January 6, 2013 through February 3, 2013:

  1. Security: admin and member passwords are now hashed using a newer and much more complicated hashing system than was previously used.
  2. Security: Added a new feature where members can change their password if they forget it via email confirmation.
  3. Security: Cookies now are deleted immediately instead of after 8 seconds.
  4. Security: Users that register are immediately logged in upon completion of their registration instead of having to log in after registration. This may change in a future update. I’m not sure yet.
  5. The admin calendar now displays the Month name and “prev” and “next” buttons.
  6. The “+” can now be used in article tags such as “C++”.
  7. Quotes can now be used for News post titles and anime review titles. This appears to already have been possible in the other form pages.
  8. It should no longer be possible to create a news post with no title.
  9. The Articles page no longer displays “Title and days since last updated.” when no category has been selected.
  10. The “Submit Review” button has been renamed to “Post Article” or “Save Changes” depending on how it is used.
  11. The author of the article is now colored. I chose not to document this change when I made it, but that was a mistake. I do not recall if that change was made with this build or the previous one, but it was made fairly recently.

Significant changes include:

  1. Members can reset/change their password.
  2. Security for members is greatly improved for members and somewhat improved for the admin.
