Earlier a friend called me while working at a client location and needed to know how to configure the VLAN on a Cisco 7940 IP Phone. I always forget the different ways to unlock different phones and wasn’t having an easy time locating the method on Google but finally did locate how to unlock the the Cisco 7940. Below is information on how to unlock the Cisco 7940 phones.
Earlier while troubleshooting an issue for a client of mine I ran into an issue when testing HylaFAX’s sendfax via the CLI.

Anyhow the error along with the quick resolution to the issue are noted below.
Continuing Google Chrome downloads that have been canceled because of a crashed browser, a Windows bluescreen, or some other reason is quite easy by using the tools available via Linux. The primary tool used to continue downloading files on a Linux computer is called wget and can be obtained for Windows using the information below. If a Chrome download has been cancelled for some reason you can continue downloading the file using wget as explained below. I am surprised there is not a extension that provides a resume feature yet however I imagine one will be coming along in the near future.
When editing a GIF image via Photoshop earlier I needed to blur out a couple items in an image I had taken however I was unable to use the Photoshop filters that I typically use to do so. Each of the Photoshop filter menu items were greyed out and Photoshop would not let me select any of them. Use the information below to modify the Mode and enable the ability to use the Photoshop filters.

Luckily you can still easily reboot Windows 7 remotely when connected via Remote Desktop using the instructions below.
