Die, My Sharing Folders, die!!

So you want to have the latest MSN Live Messenger, but you find it annoying it must bring along its friend Sharing folder system. I know the feeling. I scooped arround the web for a bit and found out this solution:

regsvr32 -u "C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\fsshext.8.1.0106.00.dll"

This magical incantation does wonders. If it brings an error message, just figure out the appropriate file for the fsshext-yadda-.dll.

Media covers printing

Hi all! I want to make this blog a useful place to store the software I use, ideas I have, etc. This way not only others may benefit from them, I myself can use it as a backup - for more than 4 or 5 times I was forced to do a full hard drive format and install my working environment from scratch, each time loosing lots of time remembering what I previously was using...

So this post is here to record what I'm using to print media storage covers:


Have a nice week!

A Blogger's environment

I know am pretty comfortable with my blogging tools. I now use Firefox, with the Performancing add-on, along with it's plugin for Flickr image uploading. This post is a test of what it can do. This is a picture of myself:

and this text proves what I wasn't able to do in Hello+Picasa - to place a picture wherever I want.

This means a couple of thumbs up for Performancing!

EDIT: this also allows to sync your calendar with google calendar. it seems to work!

After a while without trying any kind of blogging ...

After a while without trying any kind of blogging systems, I'm back to the world. Here's my current settings:

  • A blogger account (beta version) with two blogs:
    • Carpathian cloud, for all my academic and technical posts. Aimed at the common geek :)
    • This one. Aimed for the general audience. PG not necessary, but may be advisable in certain posts!
Hope we can have some fun here!
