Sidekickin’

So, my cellphone, the Sidekick has a new life! This is first, a great gadget! Cell phone, web browsing, instant messenger, camera, PIM…even has games. Well, there has been a lot of anticipation of an upgrade to the OS which brings some nice new enhancements. The biggest one is the ability to run javascript…

There has been some discusson on the hiptop forum about who has received the update and when…and the moderators of the forum kept saying that it was completely random. Well someone figured out how to “force” the update to happen. It was a bit of a pain but it actually worked for me (continual shutdown and restart of the device). I now have it!

Nice to breathe life into an old gadget!

Printing Fixed

In General, Software by Michael Sheehan1 Comment

OK, this is pretty crazy…my issue at work printing HTML emails has been resolved. What I don’t get is how something that has been documented for many years can continue to crop up. There have been so many different approaches to fixing it but it seems like only one actually works.
So, bottom line, if you ever encounter any issues with printing HTML emails within Outlook (but plain text are fine), follow the direction of the file linked here [Outlook 2003 HTML Printing Registry Fix] .


Fun!
