Fading Fix for HP Color LaserJet 2605

Over the last 2 months or so, I’ve noticed my color print outs did look as good as they use to.  For example, I was working on a new idea for Cub Scouts, designing a new pit pass for the scouts to wear for Pinewood Derby in Spring 2014.  The pass included a red, blue […]

Finder Background Color Button Locked

Over the last 18 months, I’ve been using my iMac as my main computer.  I configured multiple Desktops (spaces) changed the screensaver, installed programs, games (Diablo 3 and Steam for Team Fortress 2).  Basically making it my own, just like I do with Windows and Linux.   So one day I was looking at other features of Finder, […]

Goodbye Dell Dimension 8200

I would like to take a moment to say goodbye to my Dell Dimension 8200 system.  😦  I’ve slayed many monsters and demons on the Diablo series, and fragged many friends playing the Quake series, and destroying the the AI players in HOMM3 (plus actual work stuff).

New Linksys E4200 Router

Just over 4 years ago I purchased a Linksys WRT54GS router from Best Buy.  The main reason was to use my work notebook PC because I was not able to go downstairs due to a foot injury. The Linksys WRT54GS worked great.  I never had a problem with firmware updates, the radio signal was strong, […]

Modify Screensaver Picture Path in Ubuntu

On my Ubuntu PCs I use the Pictures Folder screensaver.  It’s a nice screensaver that cycles through all your pictures.  At work I run dual monitors and the screensaver displays different pictures. What I don’t like about this screensaver, no way to configure which pictures I want to use.  My Pictures folder contains a bunch […]
