I recently updated iTunes and QuickTime on my Windows 7 PC and afterwards noticed that when opening a .PSD (Photoshop Document) file that instead of opening in Photoshop the file opened in PictureViewer. I wasn’t even familiar with PictureViewer at first however after a little searching I realized that PictureViewer is now installed with QuickTime by default which is really annoying since I already have dozens of picture viewing applications. Anyhow what it meant was that I needed to modify how file types associated to applications which is what is described in more detail. I will first describe how to change a single file type to match a single application and then I will describe how to associate a single program to many file types at the same time.
I ran into a interesting virus today at work. It was another one of those “buy this to get rid of this” type programs which are pretty common but this was one I hadn’t seen before. It was particularly nasty to get rid of so I thought I would make a short post in case any one else has this issue
I created this site as a way for people to post errors, get responses, and learn in general. I have been a sysadmin in some sort of capacity for going on 10 years now and am just getting around to tackling being a programmer. Currently I have some shell scripting experience but overall I am just not a programmer. I doubt this will get many responses right away since the site is so new but I wanted feedback on what peoples opinion on the path someone should take to become a programmer. I am mad at myself for not jumping into this earlier but better late than never. I have decided to learn using Ruby and technically Ruby on Rails.
Good sites comparing Ruby on Rails with other frameworks
