Outlook 2007 certificate install

Image
A time ago a wrote how to solve the certificate issue in Outlook 2010 . I was explaining how to set up Outlook 2010 with your own POP3 server in case you are using SSL authentication with self made certificate. While in Outlook 2010 you just needed to install your certificate, on Outlook 2007 the process for adding certificate is bit more complex so follow these steps to add your own created certificate to trusted publishers on windows machine.

Start->run, or +R

type "mmc" and hit enter

On opened window choose File->Add/Remove Snap-In...

From Availbale Snap-Ins select Certificates and click Add


In new window choose Computer Account, press next

Select Local computer: (the computer this console is running on)

Click Finish, and click Ok

Expand the folder Colsole Root->Certificates->Trusted root certification

Right click on Certificiates, select All Tasks->import and now you need to import your SSL certificate.

The easiest way to get your certificates is by saving it from t…

Convert between points, pixels, ems and percents

Image
Ok, sometimes you get an *.ai file to convert it to the HTML and there the fonts are set to the points, but you rather would use pixels. Or what ever is the reason, so I will kindly give you a list of points, pixels, ems and percents so you can convert between them. NB this is an approximation but quiet a good one.

Google's public DNS service

Image
If you are in need for a free, stable and accessable from anywhere DNS server you can use Google's public DNS server with easy to remember IP address - 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4. Or if you prefer IPv6 - 2001:4860:4860::8888, 2001:4860:4860::8844

Open file manager window from console

Some times you work in console, and need to open current path in file manager window.You can open any window and then navigate to location that is in your console path, or you can simply type
xdg-open . &
The "." means that you pass the current location to the command "xdg-open", and appending the "&" sign at the end will able you to detach xdg-open command from the console, so you still can contine to work on the console and keep the file manager window opened.

Adding Gnome 3 to Ubuntu 11.04

This works for Ubuntu 11.04.

To install Gnome 3 on Ubuntu 11.04 you basically do
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

and then switch to it doing
gnome-shell --replace
If after first command you get an error about unmet dependencies like gir1.2-atk-1.0 you might open Ubuntu Software Center and click Edit->Software Sources... and add "ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3".

Or do it via terminal by running
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

After that re-run the first command

EsReVeRsE - The spring is over

Actually it is funny, that I added the vocal only after I finished the track and fine tuned all the effects. While playing my finished track I clicked on vocals from song Raquel-You are the one, and surprisingly the vocals sounded so good, that I added them.
There are many tunes outside there using these vocals, because they come with the default package.

*Update Removed the voice, because it sounded messy after all.

Security certificates

Image
Well this has been annoying, so I will make a post as a reminder for myself.
When connecting to mailserver with outlook through SSL you might get an error saying:
The server you are connected to is using a security certificare that could not be verified. A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider. Do you want to continue using this server?
And then question, whether or not you want to install the certificate. And even if you install the certificate, nothing changes. Next time the same warning pops up.
This might be caused by several reasons, but mine was simple. Just make sure, that your POP3 server name is *exactly* the same as the server name the certificate is issued to. If in your configuration you type in IP, it will not work, because Outlook will think, that this is different server.



To install certificate on Outlook 2007 follow these steps

Adobe AIR 2.7

There are many new features I can see will be available in Adobe AIR 2.7. Although there are documentation for them, the AIR 2.7 SDK is not yet available. I hope it will come out soon. Update! Great. Now we have AIR 2.7 runtime released, but, unfortunately, still no SDK is available.
