Tonight I was downloading some packages from a community FTP server I am a member of and noticed that the transfer speeds were not showing after I started to process the FileZilla FTP transfer queue. Initially I figured I must have unchecked a toolbar or accidentally modified a view setting without knowing it. After reviewing the FileZilla configuration I couldn’t find anything that specified the display of the transfer speeds. Below I show FileZilla when it is not displaying the transfer speeds when it is in the middle processing a queue, what steps I took to resolve the issue, and last but not least what FileZilla should display when it is processing files from the transfer queue.
After recently reinstalling Windows 7 on my laptop I was getting all of my typical applications reinstalled and continued getting a popup error for Evernote after getting it configured. I use Evernote to automatically sync notes I take in Notepad++ remotely to Evernote’s servers so I have a copy of all my notes in real time in a remote location in case anything drastic happens with my laptop. Anyhow I had never seen this error before and all I was doing was syncing the same notes that have been incrementally synced to Evernote for years now. I finally took the time to look in the logs, locate the issue, and easily resolve it by removing the problem notes which I didn’t need any longer anyhow.
Error Failed Dependencies: libaudiofile.so.0 is needed by nxclient-3.4.0-7.i386 Installing NX Client
While looking for a light weight way to run XChat all the time without having to disconnect every time I shutdown my laptop I discovered NoMachine NX which is easy to install, configure, and use. It provides remote X sessions and is fairly reasonable in terms of bandwidth. When installing the NX Client on one of the CentOS servers I was installing this on I ran into an error complaining about libaudiofile. Below I describe the error in more detail, how I located the package to install, and show the package being installed.
Emoticons get on my nerves so when I typed “:)” in a new install of XChat the other day I was pretty annoyed. Luckily disabling emoticons in XChat is easy and in the first part of this article I explain doing so. After disabling them I was curious what emoticons actually come configured with XChat for Windows so I tracked down where the emoticons were configured and then checked out the list of available emoticons which is described in the second part of the article.
I would prefer to remove Adobe Bridge from my machine all together but I haven’t found a solid way to accomplish that task yet so I settled for moving the Bridge button that was in the top left corner and removing the reference to Bridge in the File menu. My issue was that many times I would accidentally click on the Adobe Bridge button and have to wait until Bridge fully launched and then close it before I could continue. Use the information below to accomplish minimizing the impact of Bridge on your Photoshop use.
