KrazyBen Mashups

Posted by Jon Evans 17/01/2007 at 07h39

I'm currently listening to KrazyBen's Mashed of 2006 mashups, they are excellent. Actually they are more like mashups of mashups, as he's taken a load of existing work by other mashup artists and remixed them together.

Calm down, dear!

Fixed version of Logitech Control Center 2.12

Posted by Jon Evans 02/01/2007 at 11h13

I have just installed LCC 2.12 and it doesn't work. Version 2.11 worked fairly well but was a bit buggy when switching scroll wheel settings when focus moved between apps.

I have tracked down the problem to the fact that some files are missing in the install, read on for more info and a fix.

Updated 2007-01-07: 'a' pointed out that you need to make sure the ownership of the kext is correct, so I've added another step.

Updated 2007-01-11: I've just noticed that Logitech have pulled version 2.12 from their site. You can only download version 2.11 at the moment.

Updated 2007-01-12: Version 2.12 is back on Logitech's site. Unfortunately, it is still broken.

Updated 2007-01-23: Logitech have fixed the bug. I've removed the download as it's not needed any more.

Windows Uptime

This is for my own future reference. To find out the uptime of a Windows box, type net statistics server. The date and time the server started up is printed at the top of the resulting output.
