Lift Your Table ® TM Risers Lifts STRAIGHT LEG KIT – $35 Install table legs without any tools It started as an absolute necessity.  I worked so many hours in a single two weeks stretch (Monday, September 8 – Friday, September 19, 2014) that I simply could not sit anymore.  But I still had to work.  So I placed couple of cardboard boxes on my desk and raised my working space by 1.5 ft.  It was ugly, but it carried me through first several weeks.   Next step was to make it a bit prettier.   This time a coffee table landed on my office desk, and it brought some semblance of…

mfehidk-EventID-516

This fix was tested with Windows XP Pro SP3 with Office 2003 SP3 and McAfee AntiVirus Plus. Finally.   Finally I found a solution for this really scary-looking error message that was bugging me since 12/24.  Marry Christmas! Description of a Problem Every time you restart you PC you see a very unpleasant Warning Event ID 516 in your system event log from mfehidk. This is the very last system message before computer reboots or goes to sleep. Process **\MCSHIELD.EXE pid (864) contains signed but untrusted code, but was allowed to perform a privileged operation with a McAfee driver. What is Causing it? It appears that most people (and I join them) …

Annoying!  How Annoying! This very simple, very typical error message, but it is so hard to find a quick solution. Symptoms: You are starting a Cisco VPN Client and immediately you are getting this error message: Error 51: Unable to communicate with the VPN subsystem. Please make sure that you have at least one network interface that is currently active and has an IP address and start this application again.     Most of Internet discussions on this error message revolve around MAC OS.  But this error I was able to fix on Windows XP.

2014-05-25 SU 21;26 Horsefeathers North Conway NH

The walking stage of the hike was closing to an end, and bike portion was fast approaching. Crossing Saco river took about 15 minutes.  First, a test cross with only valuables, and then second crossing with 2 sticks in both hands and a backpack. Rain started again, I did not know what to cover – myself, or the bike, or the backpack.  I did not take a picture with backpack mounted on the bike, but it was an impressive site. The only technical glitch that I encounter was the situation with the pump.  I was not able to fit the pump to the socket properly, and as a result back tire had relatively…
