Tips & Pointers

If you live in some sort of building with a metal deck, over the years it will probably start to develop rust spots, and eventually peels and chips.

Mine had poor drainage so water would sit on it, collect and eventually rust the metal. Parts of it were starting to flake so I knew it was time to get it taken care of.


I had a problem with my Windows Defender giving me the following error code: 0X80240022 when it tried to update. I was also unable to download updates for XP, and office through the browser.

To solve it I went to start> programs > administrative tools > services.


For those of you who run a home office and occasionally need to send a fax I have found the following solution to be a really cost effective one, and will only cost you around $10 in fees to set up and should be enough to send around 90 faxes for that $10, which for me is more than a years worth of faxes. You will need a computer, a printer, and a scanner for this to work properly. Right now I see a mix of companies allowing faxes or email attachments, and I am guessing one day all “faxing” could be done through email attachments and for “free”.

So I have been using my laptop hooked up to an old monitor hear at home and it is awesome…having 2 displays is an excellent time save…i do not need to alt+tab between windows, just cut, move the mouse and paste…or just drag and drop in some cases. My pallettes can be off to the side in photoshop…. dual monitors are awesome.


So I am thinking I will be buying this phone. I have heard good things about it ffrom a friend who has one. I have been on sprint and it has been terrible for the whole time. I have read mixed opinions about it, but for 25 dollars it could not hurt too much..other then the year long contract.


So I was using my ipod at work today, a song come on that i did not want to hear and I hit the next button. Well my ipod locked up and just froze.

Anyhow i searched google on “how to reset an ipod 40gb” and came up with nothing but crap answers, then finally found the apple manuals:
