Although the weather has been quite nice lately, today it is raining outside. Which of course makes me miss Lebanon and the Middle East even more. To alleviate my pain(or aggregate – depends on how you see it) , I put together a theme pack with a few of my Lebanon pictures. Some from Beirut, more from Ebel es Saqi and Blate in the south. Take a look, grab it if you want, and feedback is welcome in the comments underneath.
Microsoft has released a beta version of a new tool called Microsoft Fix it Center. This tool provides one single point you can go to in order to run several different troubleshooters to solve the different issues you are having with your computer. Although currently in beta it already provides a multitude of automatic troubleshooters to you. If you are having problems not addressed by the tool, you can report your issue through the tools online center and hopefully Microsoft will follow up on it. The tool looks promising, especially for those of us that falls into the category of being the family and friends it-guy! Just make sure you have this installed on their machines – and you can easily guide them through its use.
