I recently ran into an issue with the HP 3005PR port replicator at a client’s office. The port replicator comes with a partition that has it’s install software on it, (which is nice, but I could just download the latest drivers from HP’s site). This partition sometimes takes over the F: drive or any drive that the usual network shares use and therefore the computer can’t access whichever drive letter the network share usually is. We’ve tried disabling the drive, but sometimes it comes back after switch usb port etc. The problem is that the storage management snap-in in Windows doesn’t allow you to change the drive assignment for this port replicator. A colleague of mine thought of a smart solution. You can use Diskpart to resolve the resolution.
Here are the instructions to change the drive letter Issue:
Run CMD.exe as an administrator.
Type “Diskpart” and press enter.
Type “List volume”.
Locate the HP DOCK volume and note the drive letter assigned, this is the drive letter you want to get back (usually 3, or 4 could be different for you)
Type “Select volume X” (X being the actual volume number you found)
Type “Remove letter=X” (X being the actual drive letter you want to get back)
Type “Assign letter=X” (X being the drive letter you want to give the port replicator that will not interfere with your network shares).
So I’ve been listening to Deep House and Indie Dance / Nu Disco for about two years now, and I’ve decided to take the plunge, buy some DJ gear and start spinning sets. Below you can find my first set called Yalla (which means come on, or let’s go in Arabic) on Soundcloud or Youtube. Any Feedback is greatly appreciated. For those that are curious, I’m using a DDJ-SXW (which is just a limited edition of the DDJ-SX in white) and Traktor for the software.

Have you just bought a Surface Pro 2, plugged it in, ran Windows Update and restarted only to find your Wireless driver has been uninstalled? Well I just found this out while updating a client’s Surface Pro 2. I tried getting the driver pack for the Surface Pro 2, and randomly found a February Firmware Update and driver pack from Microsoft, which you have to install manually for each driver. Anyways, the Pro 2 Wireless driver didn’t work, however the Pro 1 Driver did. I will link to all files so you can easily find them all and see what works for you. However I have found that the Pro 1 Wireless drivers are the only ones that actually worked for me on the Pro 2, go figure…
If you need help installing them, feel free to comment, and I’ll try to help out.

If you’re running outlook 2003 and Windows 7 you might have noticed that some of your sent items are missing text. Don’t worry you’re not alone or going crazy. It’s a known issue that I found while helping out a client, and it’s been reported on spiceworks. The culprit is Internet Explorer 11. You can just uninstall it and the issue will be resolved. If you’re having this problem and want to uninstall Internet Explorer 11 follow the link below:
Apple has released 10.8.3. Fixes a lot of issues, especially the one in which you could make a browswer crash by inputting a file address. You can download it from the Mac App Store, or if you want the combo link (updates any version of mountain lion) you can download it from Apple’s Website. I always like to grab the combo update and put it on my USB flash drive so I can update any family member or friends mac, without having to download additional updates.
You might be wondering why there is a picture of Palmolive Oxy at the top of this post. A few months back I had recieved some free Dishwashing soap for free with my groceries. It’s always nice to get something free, but it really sucked. I had to squeeze a huge amount to get any lather. Then while at a friends house I noticed he was using Palmolive Oxy. I could smell it from a couple of meters away and it smelled fantastic, great, so exuberant. Haha I had to over do it. Anyways I bought it next time I was getting dishwashing soap and it was only a few more cents than the normal brands (and even cheaper than some cheap brands go figure). One drop is all it took to lather really well. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for.
