It may not be enough to simply import your .wab from Outlook Express into Windows Live Mail (WLM). The problem being Outlook Express saves a persons name as “name” and not “first name” and then “last name.” Windows Live mail may not auto fill correctly when you type in a persons name. Here is how you fix it. 1.  Assuming you have your .wab (Windows address book) already copied and moved over to your new...

Windows XP life cycle should be standard moving forward

Posted by on Apr 13, 2014 in Blog, computers, customer support, operating system, software, Technology, Windows XP | 0 comments

I can’t imagine how much money Microsoft has made in the last year. All of the businesses out there purging Windows XP from being used under their roof. All of the consumers running XP seeing the news of it’s end of life, and then upgrading to a newer Windows. The numbers must be astronomical for Microsoft. My fear is they might get greedy and decide to do this again but only sooner for the outstanding supported versions of...

I was having trouble with a Tenvis IP camera model JPT3815W updating it’s built in DDNS. For the record my original DDNS that is on the sticker must have expired.  I was doing everything right as it was working fine and then all of a sudden one day it fails to update my IP. If any one else has a similar problem just ask for a new DDNS user and pass and change it. First to make sure go to google and type “my ip” then take that...

Ex*o*dus a going out; a departure or emigration, usually of a large number of people: the summer exodus to the country and shore. Yes it is upon us the twilight final days of Windows XP.

What wireless router should I buy?

Posted by on Mar 15, 2014 in Blog, hardware, internet, internet appliance | 0 comments

It’s a common question that gets asked a lot, and I’m here to shed some light on what I have learned. First of all a lot of ISP’s are incorporating wireless and a four port wired LAN into their modems. I know ATT does this with their U-Verse and Comcast does this with their newest modems. So if you have a wireless light on your modem you will not need to buy a separate wireless router,  you already have wireless capability...

Java Version 7 Update 51 forces the use of the exceptions site list

If you are having problems with your Java telling you that your security settings do not allow this applet to run, you will need to add the site to the security exceptions list inside Java. A lot of online games like Yahoo Games will need this action performed if you want to ever play them again. You can try lowering your security settings to medium inside Java, but this could open you up to a malicious attack so be aware of that. In a nutshell...
