I bought the Rubik’s Cube when I went to Wanaka back in September…but I had never been able to solve the whole thing ever since the day I got it…and its been sitting on my desk…everyday…laughing at me…because I was unable to solve it This morning I woke up and said to myself….THATS IT! I am going to solve you and I won’t give up until its done! (more…)
I have been keeping an eye on my Blog Stats and interestingly enough, I’ve discovered that there is a fair amount of people coming to my blog because they searched the term “k lite codec pack mac“. The actual search term may vary (E.g. some people might search for k codec mac instead), but as you can see, they are trying to find the “Mac version of K-Lite Codec Pack“. (more…)
Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and having a good time.
07 has gone so quickly and before you know it…2008 products are just around the corner.
(E.g. Office 2008, Windows Server 2008, VS 2008 etc)
I got myself two presents this year…two books:
Have a nice holiday and I hope to see you all next year
Most of the eBooks nowadays are in either PDF or CHM format. While Windows have native support for CHMs (of course…), Macs have native support for PDFs. If you want to read PDF files under Windows, all you have to do is to install Acrobat Reader, but what if you want to read CHM files under Mac OS X? Since a number of eBooks that I’ve got are in CHM format, I was conformed with the task of finding a CHM reader for my Mac. So I did a little research online and found an application called xchm.

Looks like Microsoft is giving us “an early present” by releasing the SP1 for Office 2007 before XMAS The first service pack for Office 2007 is suppose to be out on the 11th of December…but the link doesn’t seem to be working tonight
Check out this link: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx
At the time of this writing, the link “Download and install Service Pack 1 for Office 2007” won’t lead you to the right place, all you will get is: “We’re sorry, the page you requested could not be found“. Looks like Santa forgot to put the present on the web page
Hopefully when I wake up tomorrow morning (12th of Dec), the link will be working

But the end result is the same (page not found) at the moment
Lately I’ve been busy learning Office 2007. So far I’ve finished Excel and I am now half way through Word 2007. Currently I am planning to finish PowerPoint, Publisher and Outlook before Christmas.
I am learning these things for two reasons: 1st: we can’t get away from Microsoft Office…its everywhere! One way or the other, we have to use one / more Microsoft Office programs for our work; 2nd: I am offering some computer trainings in Oamaru, so it would be great if I know programs like Excel and Outlook because they are very popular in the business world; also…knowing a trick or two in these programs can certainly save you time later on.
Is this a joke? All you have to do is to connect the USB cable to your Mac and that’s it…right?
Well, not quite unless your external hard drive is pre-formatted as Mac OS Extended / FAT32. Since most external hard drives are pre-formatted as NTFS; Mac OS X can only read data from the hard drive; but it can’t write anything to it (unless you install other 3rd party software. I didn’t know this until I got an external hard drive a few months ago, and my friends have been asking me the same questions lately, so I thought it might be a good idea to put it on my blog so that others who got the same situation can solve the problem without calling their friends / technicians
