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. Since no issues have been identified that would affect the systems I manage I began rolling out the update this week. Unlike many of Microsoft's previous operating system service packs, Windows 7 SP1 serves primarily as a roll-up of previous security ...

TSA: Remove Your Sweatshirt!?!

I showed up at JFK's security checkpoint just like I have dozens of times before. Belt-less, shoeless, jacket-less, liquid-less, with my shoes and laptop on their own trays for inspection. Today, however, security had another requirement. "Are you wearing anything under your sweatshirt?" shouted the screening agent. "Yes, an undershirt" I replied.

Remembering Rochester's Midtown Plaza During Christmas

By the time I moved to Rochester in '98 Midtown Plaza was well past it's prime. Major retailers had moved to the newer and arguably nicer malls in the suburbs. Much of the plaza was vacant and the stores that remained weren't exactly draws. Although times were tough the atmosphere at the mall changed during the holiday season. Midtown Plaza filled with families. Both parents and children downright giddy to be in Downtown Rochester, visiting Midtown Plaza. The draw, however, wasn't shopping ...

Barnes Creek; A Hidden Gem in Canandaigua, NY

Last weekend was hot and muggy but I had the itch to get out and do something physical. I managed to convince Cathy to join me for a short hike. We didn't really feel like walking around Mendon Ponds Park so I fired up AllTrails on my iPhone and looked for something interesting but on the shorter side. I came across a listing for the Barnes Creek Trail but comments suggested ditching the trail and walking up the creek itself. Doing so ...
