Ninite removed Flash

Sad to say. Adobe forced them to take it down. They expect us to go to their crappy download procedure. Adobe… guys..did you have to?

If youre using Windows 8 its supposed to be integrated so Windows Update takes care of, but for some reason Firefox still complains that it isn’t updated. And still, were stuck with the adobe manual update procedure in all previous version of windows.

From this day forward, we say NO to adobe flash!

Heres an xkcd comic to visualize my frustration

Strange group by problem

A curious problem.
Environment : Sharepoint Foundation 2010 using localization on Server 2008 R2
Symptom: After migration of Sharepointsite to different host problems started occur with the Group By function in all Views that utilized this.
First time a group by view is expanded everything works, but after opening a document under a group by node all the nodes reloaded and after this no + or – does what it should. Everything just shows as “Loading” under the Group By nodes. The Ribbonmenu also get stuck on “Loading” after this has started occuring. Reload of entire site doesn’t do anything. Browsing in InPrivate node gets in rolling once, then same error again.

Trust Relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed

Symptom: When trying to login to the domain with a Windows 7 computer the following message is displayed “The trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed”.

Cause: Has the computer been out of sync with domain for some reason the domain computer password might have been expired. Check for trouble with dns or network errors.

Solution:

  1. Log on to the Windows 7 computer with a local account
  2. Go to system properties and choose Network ID
  3. Go through the questions, yes its a domain and so on. Give a valid domain account that has the right to add computers to the domain. Normal user account works for default domains if not locked down.
  4. Restart

Other solutions is to remove the computer from the domain. First on the local computer and then from the domain controller. Above solution, which is new for Windows7, is far more effecient though.

Lumia 800 finally at 7.8

Today operator Telia finally released Windows Phone 7.8 for the Lumia 800 in Sweden.

Took a while.

Features will include:

  • Lockscreen with daily Bingimage
  • Resizable Live tiles
  • Internet Sharing (?, already release weeks ago?)
  • Bluetoothsharing
  • Contact Share
  • PlayTo

Not really impressing, but we’ll see if it brings any nice tidbits when we’ve tried it for while…
