Show Your Work In the Best Light With Spotlight Presentation Remote

Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote

I happened to see this tool demonstrated at the end of a Ted Talk today and it made me think it would be a spectacular device for speakers in any information delivery environment.

Instead of laser pointers or extra long pointing sticks, this is remote actually shows a much larger highlighted area on any screen. This is what the Amazon site has listed as the remote’s attributes:

  • Advanced wireless presentation remote goes beyond laser pointing so you can interact with content on the room screen
  • Precisely highlight or magnify specific content right on the screen with the simple touch of a button
  • Track presentation time and set vibration alerts to stay in command until your final slide
  • Navigate your slides without looking down using intuitive forward and back buttons
  •  Universal compatibility on most devices, operating systems and leading presentation software such as Windows, Mac OS, PowerPoint, Keynote, PDF, Google Slides and Prezi
  • Logitech’s remote comes in two colors Gold or Slate and will fit neatly in any case. Owners report a very long battery life as well.

How computers broke science – and what we can do to fix it

Ben Marwick, University of Washington Reproducibility is one of the cornerstones of science. Made popular by British scientist Robert Boyle in the 1660s, the idea is that a discovery should be reproducible before being accepted as scientific knowledge. In essence, you should be able to produce the same results I did if you follow the method… [Read more…]

Roboform Fix For Firefox Browser

FF logo Roboform logo

After a recent update of Roboform, I began getting an error message that stated:

Can not load RoboForm add-on
Please restart browser or reinstall RoboForm

TypeError: aId is undefined
resource://app/modules/CustomizableUI.jsm(1104)

Before contacting Roboform support, I did uninstall and then reinstalled RF to see if that solved the problem. It didn’t, so I then sent a support ticket to Roboform support, Including the error message text.

The reply from TS  Olivia came back within a few minutes:

Olivia replied (2015/01/30 11:22 pm EST):
Please UNcheck the option ‘Attach RoboForm to Firefox even if adapter is not installed’ in RoboForm > Options > Browser Integration
click OK and restart Firefox, if running.
Should help.

The result was that it did help and Firefox no longer shows that error message.

 

QL700 Brother Label Printer Needs This Driver For A 64 Bit Operating System

QL700 Label Printer Fix

Brother QL-700 High-speed, Professional Label Printer

When I got my new label printer I thought it was going to be a snap to get it up and making labels in just a few hours. Keep in mind, I was dealing with a new 8.1 Windows operating system, on a new to me computer, so there was a bit of a learning curve included. I got the label maker from Amazon in early June, so as you can see, I was a bit slow on the uptake.

I went through all the steps to hook it up correctly…more than a few times. But, something was missing. Yesterday, I finally discovered what it was: the correct driver for my 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS.That’s all it was and in just a couple minutes I was making labels. One of the features that I’m looking forward to using on this label maker is the ability to print postage when I need it. Next up, seeing if I can find a way to convert all of my old Avery label files into the Brother system file types. If not, then it will be a slow slog of doing them all over again.

AFTER INSTALLATION OF THE DRIVER, REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM.
