KeePass 2.24 Released

Just a quick note to say that KeePass 2.24 has been released. The downloads are here and the changelog is here. I’ve written about my use of KeePass here. I use the Portable KeePass version, so I just unzip it over the old version and we are good to go! Cheers Tim… Update: Remember, if [...]

WordPress 3.7.1 has been released. The announcement is here and the changelog is here. If you go on to your blog now, you will have the option of manually initiating the upgrade in the normal way.

Captain Support and the Mystery of the Broken Website (Internet Explorer 11)

After successfully upgrading two laptops to Windows 8.1, Captain Support flew back to his secret server room and continued to monitor the world’s communications, waiting for the next opportunity to allow mere mortals to witness his greatness. That opportunity came when his sister-in-law emailed to say that his nephew’s football academy website was not working [...]




OS X Mavericks on MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009)

After getting back from the OTN Nordic Tour 2013, I figured it was time to give OS X Mavericks a go. I’m currently using a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009). It’s a little long in the tooth, but it has 8G RAM and a 256G SSD, so it still performs pretty well. At least well [...]




WordPress 3.7

WordPress 3.7 has been released. The downloads are in the usual place. I updated 5 blogs with not hassles.

Happy upgrading, possibly for the last time… Cheers Tim…




Captain Support and the Windows 8.1 Upgrades

Being the adventurous type of guy he is, Captain Support decided to launch into Windows 8.1 upgrades on his Mom’s and sister-in-law’s laptops. They were identical machines, both running Windows 8 and configured the same. One was local and the other connected to over LogMeIn… The first thing he noticed about the upgrade is the [...]




UltraEdit 20 Released

If you are an UltraEdit junkie, like me, you can now get your hands on version 20 for Windows. The most noticeable new feature is the ability to skin the editor. Post-installation it shows up with a Sublime style skin, which I immediately reset to classic. You can see the list of changes here. Cheers [...]

Captain Support and Windows 8…

Captain Support was getting pretty sick of supporting the crappy old laptops his brother and mother were using, so he selfishly bought them 2 shiny new laptops to make his own life easier. The only slight flaw in the plan was they came with Windows 8. Although Captain Support had some previous experience of Windows 8 [...]




Laptop and Desktop SSD Update…

I recently wrote about installing SSDs in my Laptop and Desktop. I thought I would write a quick follow up post to mention how things are going. I’m really happy with the changes to the performance of the desktop. As mentioned previously, it is now much quieter and really fast. A lot of my VMs [...]
