Palm Centro and GoDaddy SSL Certificates: Fixed!

September 16th, 2009 at 12:25 pm » Comments (3)

We have many Palm phones running Palm OS, in particular we have a lot of Palm Centros although we have some other models as well (but they all run Palm OS, not Windows Mobile). We’ve had GoDaddy SSL certificates for a while for our Exchange 2003 server. Until now, I’ve never had an issue with […]

Dave Ramsey Town Hall For Hope Test

April 22nd, 2009 at 5:49 pm » Comments (0)

We, along with over 6,000 other venues, are hosting the Dave Ramsey Town Hall For Hope event tomorrow night (Thursday the 23rd of April). There have been several tests planned because the event is being distributed via the internet (primarily) to most event host locations. As you can imagine, that’s quite a bit of bandwidth […]

WordPress 2.7 released!

December 11th, 2008 at 2:00 am » Comments (7)

I’m coming out of my blog-slumber long enough to mention that WordPress 2.7 is out today! I’ve been running it on this blog since early betas and it totally rocks. The admin redesign (yes, again) is even better than last time, by far, and there is no reason not to upgrade right this minute! (Well, […]

Google makes its own web browser called Chrome

September 2nd, 2008 at 2:14 am » Comments (3)

UPDATE on Sept. 2, 2008: Chrome beta has been released. Find it at http://www.google.com/chrome. Yep. That’s right. In case Firefox, Opera, and Safari all don’t satiate your burning desire to be rid of Internet Explorer (even if it is improving with age, after it started to ripen at least), Google said they are releasing the […]

Pictures of SteadyState Internet Cafe Computers

October 28th, 2007 at 11:47 pm » Comments (4)

I’ve been promising pictures of the Youth Internet Cafe running Firefox and Microsoft SteadyState but first I forgot, then I took the pictures and didn’t upload them, then I uploaded them recently but haven’t posted yet. Oh well. They’re here now! I uploaded nine photos to Flickr, you can see them all in the Lakeview’s […]

Gmail Down?

August 20th, 2007 at 9:24 pm » Comments (1)

When I try to view my Gmail account, I’m getting a “Server Error: Temporary Error (502)” message that says: We’re sorry, but your Gmail account is currently experiencing errors. You won’t be able to log in while these errors last, but don’t worry, your account data and messages are safe. Our engineers are working to […]

Firefox Updates and Windows SteadyState

August 15th, 2007 at 1:08 pm » Comments (0)

Firefox Upgrades Interfere with Kiosks I ran into a small issue with the SteadyState/Firefox setup that was a relatively easy fix: Firefox tried to update itself and the theme when new versions came out. Why it does this as a limited user when it can’t run the upgrade (for the program itself; the theme should […]

PassPack Your Passwords: Get Them Anywhere, Securely and Freely

August 13th, 2007 at 1:08 am » Comments (4)

I discovered a service called PassPack. The basic premise is this: Create an account, store all your passwords in it, log back in as-needed to retrieve them. “But wait!” you might say, “that’s stupid, why trust a random website to secure your passwords, just run one of the countless free Windows apps to store your info, and a lot of them will even automatically log you in via your web browser to websites.” Normally, I’d agree with you. But PassPack is doing things a bit differently…

Windows SteadyState Lockdown and the Youth Internet Café

July 31st, 2007 at 7:30 am » Comments (12)

Our new youth facility now has a four-computer internet café. I’ve already written twice about my plans and research leading up to implementation, specifically about computer lockdown software. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned briefly that we had changed course and decided to use Microsoft Windows SteadyState as our lockdown software of choice, mainly due to…

OpenDNS Does Free Adult Blocking from St. Bernard!

June 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am » Comments (9)

OpenDNS has listened to their users and released Adult Site Blocking to complement the rest of their DNS arsenal! True, ScrubIT beat them to it, but when you combine the reporting, the ability to sign up for accounts now (I still haven’t been invited to the ScrubIT beta and signed up well over a month […]
