WARNING
This post contains foul language, for instance the word Fucktard is used several times to describe Bell Canada “Techs” because they are not “Techs” they are Fucktards. So I am just warning you, there is some foul langue used.

Sorry for the lack of posts, I try and get one in at least once a week, but as you can tell I haven’t posted in over a month.  I have been extremely busy with Work and School that this site has escaped me.  So I decided to make a rant post.  There will be 3 main topics, Bell Canada, Windows 8(.1) and Exchange Server 2013.  There may be more, depending on how I feel after the rant.

Nexus-5-Press-Image-001-1280x874As my original Samsung Galaxy Nexus now has a Multi-Crack Screen I decided to upgrade to the latest and greatest.  Now the LG Nexus 5 may not be the best top of the line phone that’s out there, as the Galaxy S4 and other latest tech phones do have a bit higher rating, however nothing can beat the Nexus 5 when it comes to being PURE Android.  It’s the reason I only get the Google’s Nexus line of phones, they are 100% Pure Android.  This means no Manufacturer or Carrier “BloatWare” and no special proprietary customizations.

Back in August I was looking for when the famed 8.1 update for Windows was going to be released. The answer then was Mid September, since then it has been pushed back till the 17th of October, about 2 weeks from now. But for some, 2 weeks on Windows 8 is a life time.

Personally Windows 8 was a huge leap for myself, and I know its been a hard transition for many people. As I work in a Public Computer Centre, I get asked alot as to how to use, or navigate Windows 8. The 2 most common complains are “How do I get to my desktop” and “Where are all my programs”. For those of you who are not familiar with Windows 8 yet, let me explain.

[FIX] Windows could not finish configuring the system error after using Sysprep on Windows 7
Jul201329
[notification type=info]UPDATE: After speaking with someone one of my professors, I found that if you have syspreped the same image several times, it will not work.  Although he did not have an exact number of times he stated he stopped after 3 syspreps, and believes the limit is 5.  If you have syspreped, installed and then syspreped again several times, this solution will not work, nor will any other.  This may be the case for those of you who responded it was not working for you. If this doesn’t work and you have sysprepped more than a few times, try this article.

UPDATE 2: This is also a viable solution for Windows 8(.1) systems.

UPDATE
In early January 2015 Netflix started to make some changed which blocked Hola on Android devices.  I have since switch from using Hola to using my own Private VPN.  I have posted an article on how to set this up: The Personal VPN Solution everyone must have…

After being a Netflix subscriber for a month and a bit now, I am very disappointed at how limited our selection is here in Canada, half the good movies are unavailable.

Well this has plagued me for years, trying to run Netflix on Linux. The root cause for Netflix not working on Linux is Microsoft Silverlight, the viewer Netflix uses to stream the movies (Its a plugin like Flash). Now Linux DOES have an open source equivalent called Moonlight, however it does not have DRM (Digital Rights Management) support which Netflix requires to run.
