I updated my iPhone to iOS Beta 6 a couple weeks back and ever since I have not been receiving visual voicemail notifications. Initially I thought people were just not leaving me voicemails but once I finally called into voicemail by holding the number one on my iPhone keypad to check voicemail I realized I had 25 voicemails. Once they were all cleared out I moved on the trying to fix the visual voicemail issue which turns out is really easy to resolve by following the below steps.
Recently I wrote an article about how to install clear via Cygwin on Windows however I used the Yellowdog Updater on CentOS Linux to first figure out what package installs clear. Below I describe how to use yum to figure out what Linux package installs a specific application followed by installing clear or verifying the package that provides clear is already installed.
When I SSH to Linux servers I use the clear command a lot. This allows me to quickly reset the shell interface so there is no output so depending on if I have typed the incorrect command numerous times or the screen is filled without from something like the locate command I find it really useful to reset the interface so the screen is blank again without having to hit enter 50 times. On all of my Windows machines I have Cygwin installed to provide as much of a Linux feel as possible however I never have taken the time to figure out what installs the clear command so I could have the same luxury of clearing the windows Command Prompt or the Console2 application I use on a regular basis. Below I describe how to install clear on Windows using the Cygwin application.
We have been refurbishing a bunch of Xbox 360’s lately in our computer shop and today I was going to test one out for an extended amount of time so I needed to find a monitor or something to display the output of the Xbox 360. I tried getting it working on a Dell 1950FP monitor which has a DVI input but it wasn’t working properly so I figured I would try to reset the display settings on the Xbox 360 to see if that would make a difference. Use the instructions below to reset the display settings on your Xbox 360 from the Xbox 360 controller.
