Uninstall Ask.Com Toolbar Issue: All Internet Explorer Browser Windows Should Be Closed

A friend of mine has a computer shop and earlier today I was looking at a laptop with him that had a bunch of issues including three different toolbars being installed in Internet Explorer. Having this many toolbars installed will only slow things down. I recommend having one toolbar at most installed and personally I prefer the Google Toolbar because I use so many different Google applications and Google won’t attempt to display a bunch of unwanted data in the top of your Internet Explorer browser window.

WARNING: Your version of iTALM requires upgrading please visit the upgrade page

I have been using iTunes Affiliate Link Maker (iTALM) for a couple weeks now and had spoken to the developer a couple times before the previous upgrade. He was making a bunch of major changes and actually did a great job in getting the plugin to work now with displaying application affiliate links. It appears that when upgrading from previous versions that the version wasn’t set correctly and so now on every page of your WordPress admin site you will see the below warning message.

iTunes Error 0xE8008001: Installing Unsigned Apps On Cydia Jailbroken 3.0 iPhone

If you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch you may come across custom applications that you would like to install via iTunes so all of your applications are still managed in one place. I originally thought that I would just be able to drag the applications directly into iTunes, sync my iPod Touch with iTunes, and begin using my new application. I believe this used to be the case before iPhone OS 3.0 was released which is the version of firmware installed on my Touch. Anyhow I attempted to proceed by following the below steps and ran into an error also noted below.

Litespeed: Input Error Detected. Please Resolve The Error(s). Path Does Not Exist.

Today I was configuring a server running Postgres, Ruby, & Litespeed. It is a fairly easy setup that I run on numerous servers and it simply takes time to go through the motions to get everything up and running. There are a ton of steps so its highly likely that I miss one along the way. Today everything went smooth except for in one of the last steps where I start configuring virtual hosts in Litespeed I received an error. The error was stating that the path I was entering into the virtual host configuration did not exist. The error and the resolution are explained in detail below.

Error Starting Ruby Script/Server On A Macbook Pro Running OSX With PostgreSQL, Ruby, & Mongrel

A friend contacted me the other day because he was having an issue starting his development environment which consists of Ruby, PostgreSQL, and Mongrel. Ruby communicates with PostgreSQL using the postgres-pr gem version 0.6.1. Starting things using “ruby script/server” from within his Ruby project had been working for months without issue and there had been no confguration changes to Ruby, Postgres, or Mongrel so it appeared to not be configuration related. After getting a brief explanation of the issue I logged into his laptop and attempted to start the server. Below is the error received when attempting to start the server using “ruby script/server” via a terminal window on the Macbook Pro.
