Making ringtones on your iPhone ended up being easier than I thought it would be. At first I was a little frustrated finding out that you couldn’t simply convert sections of mp3’s from the iPhone into the ringtones that you wanted. Not only that but Apple computer users have the ability to create ringtones using Garage Band however that application can not be installed on Windows which leaves PC users a bit out in the cold. Anyhow after poking around I figured out how to convert mp3 files using iTunes, export them out of iTunes, rename them, and then import them back into iTunes to sync with your iPhone. You can cut any section out of any mp3 that is not copyright protected and make it a ringtone on your iPhone from your Windows PC.
Taking screenshots on the iPhone is simple but can be a very useful tool. I use this tool all of the time to describe how things work or describe cool iPhone features to people. The screen captures on the iPhone are saved as 320×480 pixel JPG’s which aren’t super high resolution but it will open in perfect clarity the same size as your iPhone screen.
To Take a Screen Capture on the iPhone and Email the Image Follow These Steps:
A default installation of Internet Explorer 8 has some security settings that can be annoying at times though technically they are the correct way to have things configured. One that will pop up a lot if the default settings is left untouched the the display of “mixed content” or display a HTTPS URL that has HTTP content mixed into it. Technically when visiting a secure webpage being delivered over SSL there should not be any HTTP items on the page as it leaves the door open for a security breach. The problem is there are a ton of web sites out there that display mixed content.
**NOTE: This setting is the same for the Windows XP 32-Bit and Windows 7 64-Bit versions of Internet Explorer 8.
I recently needed to look up number support tickets I have opened with Dell in the past couple of years. I had a laptop hard drive go bad and I was trying to remember if it was the second hard drive that had crashed in this laptop in a matter of 3 years. Luckily it was not but my issue was logging into Dell.com and locating the Support History & Status page.
I have had a server running ISPConfig 2.x for quite some time and have been wanting to make the transition to ISPConfig 3.x as soon as I had a chance. That chance presented itself earlier this weekend and I am glad to say there were no major issues thanks to the amazing how to from Falco at HowToForge. After the installation and bringing numerous sites back online I had some outside the normal installation steps to complete. These steps included things like installing/configuring SNMP, installing/configure Nagios, etc.
All appeared well when I went to sleep meaning the servers seemed to all check out when was finished and ready to catch some sleep. Anyways when I logged on the following day to check all of the sites all was still functional besides a small DNS configuration error I had made with one sub domain which was not a big deal.
