I recentyl posted a way to get rid of the “This Copy of Microsoft Office is not Genuine messages”, that involved getting rid of Microsoft Office itself and replace it by OpenOffice.org and Thunderbird, That is the preferred Method.
But if you are a Microsoft Lover and want to get rid only of the messages, and keep using Microsoft Office then this is what’s needed:
1- Close all the Microsoft Office Applications
2-Use the File Explorer to Navigate to your Windows System installation folder, usually:
C:\Windows\SysWow64 -for 64 bit systems-
And then locate and remove (just rename, if feel fear) the following files:
3-Ready! Start any Microsft Office, and you will see that is fast again and no more annoying messages.
As we all know evrytime windows does not properly work (and that’s very often) we have to use Ctrl+Alt+Del, so how to do it if you are accession Windows from a Remote Desktop Connection:
From Windows: Press Ctrl + Alt + End
From Linux: Press Ctrl + Alt + Del (yes, because its harmless to linux)
From MAC: Press Ctrl + Option + ForwardDelete
From iPhone: If you are using JaaduRDP, select the top icon with the arrows, slide to the second windows, there you’ll see it, just click it (and close the arrows icon again to go back to the desktop).
This is just another real case showing that Linux has become way much easier than Windows:
My daughter has a netbook with Windows XP, I have a Laptop with Ubuntu 9.10
We have a printer HP Deskjet 460 that we used today to print a drawing that my girl was making.
-In Windows XP, we plugged the printer, it detected some device asked for autodetection, I say yes, it did not found anything suitable…It asked to try via Windows Update, it found nothing, we choosed to specify model… It’s not listed…. we choosed similar models.. did’n worked…
My girl was irritated, so I said, OK let’s make a PDF email it to me and let’s try in Ubuntu:
-In Ubuntu I plugged the printer, it was deteced, installed, and we printed the drawing, just like that!
Lets imagine that the mythical place called Heaven exists…
Now imagine that any of those religious fundamentalists had the truth (pick any religion)…
Now if they had the thruth the heaven will be populated only by the hardcore members of such religion…
Would you really like to go to that heaven?
The first iPhone virus has been created this month. It only affects jailbroken viruses, because it gains access via the default ssh password.
In order to protect your iPhone for this and maybe further viruses: read this how-to to change your default ssh iphone.
When an iPhone is jailbroken, and OpenSSH server is installed in order to provide remote access.
There are two accounts root -the superuser- and mobile -the standard user-.
Both accounts have a default password: alpine
In order to change the passwords you can do it via regular Linux commands:
- Access the iPhone via ssh from your PC (you can install putty on windows to do this)
- ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
- Note: If this is the first time you connect this PC to your iPhone you will see a warning abiout fingerprints, say yes.
- and type the passwd command, it will prompt you for your password twice, when you type your new password nothing will be prompted:
- type exit to dissconnect
- Repeat the steps but this time for mobile, start with:
- ssh email@example.com
I have a previouse post about how to jailbrake an iphone but now it may be diffrent, there are two publishers of jailbreaking applications: the Dev-Team and geohot (any other source you find is just selling what they give for free).
Well, geohot has published a new app called blackra1n, this is definitivelly the fastest jailbreak I have ever seen. Not even a how to is really needed, just go to his site, download, run, follow the onscreen instructions (basically, click, connect, and wait)
And have fun!
Ubuntu netbook remix includes maximus, which is an application that maximizes all the new windows and removes the decoration, this is is very good to make it easier to work with small screens, and even to save space in regular screens, the last is my case…
Well but sometimes maximus might annoy you because it maximizes all windows, even the ones that where designed to be small.
There is no maximus icon or preferences at first sight, but you can find it under the hood, via the gconf-editor:
So open the gconf-editor with the command:
You will see some options, that can help you to select applications that you don’t want to get maximized, you can keep decoration, and you can stop automatic maximization…play with that.
(Acrobat Reader is no longer in the medibuntu repository)
If you have upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic kola) and want to install Acrobat Reader (acroread) you have to enable the canonical partners repository:
Go to the GNOME Menu : System > Administration > Software Sources
Select tab Other Sources
Mark: deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu karmic partner
Reload your sources, either graphically or with:
sudo apt-get update
And then as usual simply install acroread via synaptic or with the command:
sudo apt-get install acroread
