How to solve the Windows 7 SP1 800F0A12 / 0x800F0A12  Update Error

How to solve the Windows 7 SP1 800F0A12 / 0x800F0A12 Update Error

Roughly two weeks ago Microsoft released Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to the general public. As is standard practice for most IT departments I held off on rolling out Windows 7 SP1 until any issues with the update had been identified.

My 2012 Toyota Camry is a Lemon and Toyota Won’t Help

Update May 10, 2013: I've received a response to one of my emails to Toyota Corporate.

11 Excruciating Months With HostMonster Have Come To An End

A little less than I year ago I was forced to move to shared web hosting after running my own dedicated web & email servers for years. The reason for the move was purely financial -- hardware and internet connection costs simply pushed the luxury of dedicated hosting out of reach. When searching for a web hosting service the usual suspects kept surfacing; Bluehost, Dreamhost, FatCow, HostGator, and HostMonster (powered by Bluehost). I decided to go with HostMonster based on their being ...

How To Resolve TweetDeck Connection Issues: “Unable to connect. Please check your network.”

How To Resolve TweetDeck Connection Issues: “Unable to connect. Please check your network.”

When it comes to desktop Twitter clients there aren't many options. If you're looking for a freebie there are even fewer choices. TweetDeck is far from perfect but it's one of the better desktop clients available and it's the one I've come to rely on when I'm not using my iPhone or iPad. Back in October I upgraded my pc's to Windows 8. After reinstalling TweetDeck I was confronted with a fatal error; TweetDeck failed to login to my account and displayed ...
