Macbook Pro Date and Time: Unable to Determine Current Location at this Time

I travel a lot and I have noticed that the timezone on my mac book wasn’t updating properly. I was getting lots of wrong meeting times in Outlook and various other apps that depend on time. I was getting pretty annoyed at this and decided to figure out what was up. I was pretty sure this was supposed to happen automatically so I decided to have a look and figure out what was going on.

A friend asked me to look at their computer today because they were receiving some warning messages regarding anti-virus software. Upon inspection I noticed that he had Microsoft Security Essentials, which is what I recommended, installed as well as the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator. This was a Windows XP machine so I initially went to the Add/Remove Programs control panel to remove the ePolicy Orchestrator but there were no McAfee applications displaying so I had to figure out how to manually remove the application. Follow the instructions below to manually remove the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator from your computer.

WordPress Lightbox 2 Plugin Pop Up Falling Behind WordPress Theme Content

Typically I will use the WordPress Lightbox 2 plugin to provide a format for images within posts on a WordPress site. Basically this plugin provides an ajax window that images open in and you can scroll between the images with mini arrows to the left and the right side or you can close the image with a close button that appears at the bottom right of the image display. You can also change any of this appearance easily through the various CSS files included with four different default themes with Lightbox 2. While working on a WordPress site earlier tonight I ran into an issue where the lightbox 2 image pop up was falling behind the body content. The fix ended up being easy but it needed to be pointed out for others to fix quickly.
