fix: Microsoft mouse right-click failure
28 Μαΐου 13 03:42 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
The other day my Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 (was either a gift from Microsoft Hellas or had ordered it myself from Microsoft Company Store with the credit Microsoft used to give pro-crisis to MVPs) started behaving erratically, failing most of the times to right-click and sometimes doing left clicks instead with some delay, or […]

fix: can’t send SMTP e-mail via OTEnet.gr when using other network
28 Μαΐου 13 03:26 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
If you have an e-mail account @otenet.gr you may find out that when connecting your laptop to another network (say you’re travelling) you can’t send SMTP e-mails. To fix this make sure you set your STMP server settings to use SSL encryption and provide the port number 465 for connection. If you use Outlook (Express) […]

Eco-unfriendly Philips shipping empty software CD with just a URL in it
29 Δεκεμβρίου 12 05:02 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
I just got an (overpriced) Philips PTA01 USB adapter the other day to make my Philips Smart TV also work wirelessly (apart from via Ethernet cable) and it came with the Philips MediaConnect software on a CD, or at least I thought so till I placed the CD in my computer. I then found out [...]

Gotcha: Image component not loading remote URLs during debugging
18 Δεκεμβρίου 12 01:13 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
At ClipFlair’s Image component I use the following XAML to make it show an image from a URL that its ViewModel holds at a property named “Source”, of type Uri (URI = Uniform or Universal Resource Identifier in W3C parlance, something like a superset of the old classic URLs). <Image Name="imgContent"        HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch"        [...]

How to crash Visual Studio 2010 via (Silverlight) XAML recursion bug
12 Ιουλίου 12 04:42 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Following up on a note about Visual Studio 2010 crashing at my previous post, this is the XAML that crashes VS2010 when opened up in a Silverlight project: <UserControl x:Class="SilverlightApplication1.MainPage"   xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"   xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"   xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"   xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"   mc:Ignorable="d"   d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400">   <UserControl.Resources>     <ResourceDictionary>        <Style x:Key="MyStyle" TargetType="StackPanel">          <Setter Property="Margin" Value="0,5,0,5" [...]

Google: Χαμένοι στη μετάφραση
22 Σεπτεμβρίου 11 05:02 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Τραγική η αυτόματη μετάφραση στα Ελληνικά πολλές φορές. Το Google Toolbar στην παραπάνω εικόνα έχει μεταφράσει το AD (Active Directory) σε μ.Χ. (Μετά Χριστόν) για τα χρήσιμα (για πληροφορικάριους μόνο φυσικά) εργαλεία AD Explorer και AD Insight της SysInternals (που είναι εδώ και κάμποσο καιρό πλέον μέρος της Microsoft).

Kotsovolos: Case of a failed e-mail campaign
13 Σεπτεμβρίου 11 08:20 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
I recently received a promotional e-mail from an e-shop I mainly use to buy home appliances in Greece that was really funny: at the top offer there was a TV, but although the e-mail had been just sent (judging from its date/time stamp) the image already had a mark “exhausted” on it. Obviously it was [...]

Windows 7 issue: can’t copy filename of files on read-only media
27 Μαΐου 11 12:22 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Just came across one more case of trying to over-protect users and in the way losing functionality (maybe originally unforeseen functionality, but which is nevertheless useful to many end-users). At Windows 7, Microsoft doesn’t allow you anymore to press F2 or click on a filename to enter edit more for it when the file resides [...]

04 Μαΐου 11 12:29 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Just got the following e-mail offer from Amazon.com regarding the cool Parrot AR.Drone quad(ri)copter. Note the part “You Save: $0.04”. That’s what you get when you have automated pricing (hint: follow this link for an even more #LOL example). Tagged: Amazon, AR.Drone, Fail, Funny, Parrot, Pricing
