If Outlook 2007 has been running slower then usual you can try disabling Add-ins that are not being used.
To do this Open up the Trust Center by navigating to Tools –> Trust Center on the menu.
On the left-hand pane, choose Add-ins, and then near the bottom of the window you’ll see a button that will let you manage your COM Add-ins.
From this window you can disable any addins that aren't in use. Here are some I've disabled...
- Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging - Disable this if you aren't using Exchange.
- Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Colleague Import Add-in - Disable this if you aren't using Sharepoint.
- Microsoft Outlook Mobile Service - Disable this if you are not sending text messages from Outlook.
- iTunes Outlook AddIn - Disable this if you are not syncing your calendar or contacts with an iTunes device.
If you have Ubuntu 10.10, Intel Graphics and can't view full screen flash videos from Youtube, Hulu, or any other site this fix might help...

If your printer in Windows Server keeps going offline even if its status says 'Ready' and you know its online try disabling SNMP on the Server.
Right click the printer and choose Properties. Under the Ports tab click Configure Port... and uncheck SNMP Status Enabled.
I couldn't print to a network printer shared through Server 2003 SBS. I tried restarting the Print Spooler on the Server but that ended up freezing the Printers and Faxes window. I tried clearing out the print queue by emptying the following folder:
You will have to stop the Print Spooler to delete the files
To fix this I deleted the TCP/IP port in the registry:
Look for the corresponding IP address. Always backup the registry before modifying anything.
Moonlight is an open source implementation of Microsoft Silverlight for Unix systems. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS already has it in the repository.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install libmoon moonlight-plugin-mozilla moonlight-plugin-core
or you can go to their website http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/ and install the Chrome extension or Firefox plug-in.
You'll need to restart your browser for it to take effect.
Update: Moonlight does NOT support DRM content. That means no Netflix.
Just switched to WordPress. Gives me a lot more options and flexibility with the site.

I have Windows 7 x64 and a 1.5TB hard drive. Whenever my PC was resuming from standby I would get a BSOD. I initially thought it was a driver issue but I came across this KB article.
"You receive various Stop error messages in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 when you try to resume a computer that has a large SATA hard disk"
If you'd like to connect to a Windows PPTP VPN here is a howto to make it happen.
You need to have Ubuntu 10.04 if not you need to apt-get some packages that are not installed by default.
- Click 'System' -> 'Preferences' -> 'Network Connections'
- Click the 'VPN' tab
- Leave 'Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)' selected
- 'Click Create...'
- Type in a connection name and check the box below it if you'd like the connection to connect automatically
- For 'Gateway' enter in the VPN hostname or IP IE vpn.contoso.com or x.x.x.x
- For the username type in DOMAINusername where DOMAIN is your Windows domain name and username is.... your username
- Type in your password and leave the 'NT Domain:' box empty
- Click 'Advanced...'
- Check 'Use Point-to-Point encryption (MPPE) and leave 'Security' on 'All Available (Default)'
- Check 'Allow BSD data compression'
- Check 'Allow Deflate data compression'
- Check 'Use TCP header compression'
- Leave 'Allow stateful encryption' and 'Send PPP echo packets' unchecked
- Click 'OK'
Now this will send all your network traffic over the VPN. If you'd like to still be able to use your local connection you need to click the 'IPv4 Settings' tab, click 'Routes...' and check 'Use this connection only for resources on its network'. Enabling this can be a security risk so you should talk to your IT administrator first before enabling it. That option is called split tunneling.
Now to connect left click your network icon in the panel on the top right and hover over 'VPN Connections' and left click the connection you just created.
I'm not on a connection that allows me to do further testing but when I can I'll update this with more information.
For earlier versions of Ubuntu use the following KB article to help you install the necessary programs.
My iPad was taking upwards of 45 - 75 minutes to do a complete sync. I found a utility that disables the backup portion of the sync which speeds it up significantly.
The utility works for all ios devices.
