Fun with Eclipse Browser Settings in IBM Notes26.12.2013 13:30 Just because we can you can play around with some settings in IBM Notes on Windows.
Instead of using the Internet Explorer engine to render websites in Notes you can use XULrunner, the engine from the popular Firefox browser.
First check which engine Notes is currently using by opening a browser window within Notes (Open - Web), you may have to check your preferences to use the internal browser.
Go to http://www.whatismybrowser.com/
Now edit the file [notesprogramdir]/framework/rcp/plugin_customization.ini and add the two lines:
Now close all browser windows and restart Notes.
You can even update the version of the rendering engine, Sven Hasselbach blogged a how to: http://hasselba.ch/blog/?p=1263

Test your Wireless Security with Ubuntu 11.1001/04/2012 12:00
I still see several wireless networks with weak or even no security enabled. However if somebody uploads illegally content, like copyrighted movies, you will be held responsible as holder of the internet connection.
As you may not know what kind of security your router has as it has been installed by somebody else or you can't change the configuration you can use a software stack on Ubuntu Linux to test security. Do NOT use this to crack a network you do not own!

Annoying Scroll-Lock indicator popup on Lenovo Thinkpad with Windows 708/25/2010 08:22
On a Lenovo ThinkPad W510
I had an annoying problem with a popup indicating if the Scoll-Lock key was pressed. That tiny little grey window was popping up in the lower right corner of the screen.
The reason for hating that popus is that in Flightsimulator X the Scroll-Lock key is used to open the ATC
window. If you play in DirectX fullscreen mode the screen flickers heavily for several seconds.
I found that the indator is not a Thinkpad
feature but part of the Widcomm Bluetooth Stack. No idea why that software is doing this kind of stuff but here is the trick how to disable that indicator popup:
Use your registry editor and change the DWORD for KeyIndication
in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General to a value 0. To reenable restore the default value of 1.

No sound with AMAROK in Ubuntu Linux 9.10?04/23/2010 10:34
I had a strange problem with AMAROK not playing any sound. Even weird if I used the test-button in the preferences I did hear sound.
After searching the web I found that you have to install this package: libxine1-ffmpeg
