FileZilla Transfer Speed Display, FileZilla FTP Not Showing Transfer Speeds

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.

Evernote Sync: The Operation You’ve Performed Cannot Be Completed

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.

Disable Emoticons In XChat, List Of XChat Emoticons

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.

Photoshop Move Bridge Button And Remove Bridge Reference From Photoshop Menu

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.
