How to separate POP accounts on Microsoft Outlook.

Ok, so I am truly sorry but the title of this post: “How to separate POP accounts on Microsoft Outlook” is erroneous because you can’t actually separate POP email inboxes in Outlook. By default Outlook puts all pop account in the emails on this computer inbox. Please don't ask why, that's just the way it is. Here's what you can do about it to get the emails in seperate inboxes:

So here is a guide to adding animated creeps into TDTK.

How to change the avatar, user icon, gravitar on your Gavick Pro #Joomla template.

by Andrew Brett Watson

This one had me scratching my head, but it shouldn’t have: How do I change the user icon on a Gavick pro template?

Read more: How to change the avatar, user icon, gravitar on your Gavick Pro #Joomla template.

The answer is easy, except you need to know that your Gavick Pro Joomla templates often show TWO different icons in different places which will both appear as a default blue and white sideways "g" until you change them. Depending on how your template is set up you may need to configure them both. Heres how:

How do I clear, delete or remove all from the filezilla queue?

by Andrew Brett Watson



There can be number of reasons why you want to delete the contents of the Filezilla queue. You may want to remove incorrectly queued single items or you may want to clear the queue completely: Here's how:


1) Single right click to clear the single file from the Filezilla queue.
2) Clear all:  Right click remove all

Hope this helps if somehow you end up with items in your Fileszilla queue and need to delete them.

Why is Facebook App suddenly not playing sound on my Iphone or iPad and how do I get sound back?

by Andrew Brett Watson
You tapped on a video on your Facebook feed and the video doesn’t have any sound? Right? I immediately thought this was a bug and that Facebook would fix the error soon and I would get sound back, but nope, even though I have auto updates on and Facebook was up to date, after a few weeks there was still no sound on videos in the Facebook app on my iPhone. Other apps and youtube videos on Safari were fine. Here's how to get sound back on Facebook videos:

Can’t access FTP due to too many failed login attempts and/or too many users.

by Andrew Brett Watson

I can’t promise this will solve the issue, but here is a tip if you can’t login TO FTP because of too many failed attempts on your FTP account but you are sure you are the only one using the FTP and you are sure the password/account is secure (the best way to be sure is to change the password).

What I found when I couldn’t access my FTP using Filezilla with my hosting account was that it wasn’t because of too many failed logins, well it kind of was, but it was in fact MY fault. I had turned up filezilla to the maximum number of simultaneous transfers because I was uploading a large complicated website to the server.

What I didn’t realise is that my hosting company restricts the maximum number of concurrent connections to 7 and I had set filezilla to 9 simultaneous transfers. What I didn’t know was that filezilla was opening multiple connections to achieve the simultaneous transfers. After it had opened the maximum of seven, the server started denying connections. But filezilla continued to dutifully try and login again and again automatically, constantly failing. After enough of these failed attempts, the web server blocked my FTP account for too many failed login attempts.

So, if you suddenly can’t access your FTP account because of too many failed login attempts, the reason might be that you somehow (and not necessarily the same way I have) might indeed have inadvertently tried to login too many times.

I solved it buy dropping down the number of simultaneous transfers to well under my limit and waiting until the login ban was automatically lifted after a few hours.

Since then I have never been locked out of my FTP because of too many failed login attempts.

How to remove awesome screenshot plus Ads.

by Andrew Brett Watson

Did you just notice some ads appearing on webpages which have a line above them “ads by awesome screenshot plus” and they appear on almost every page you visit right? Now you need to know how to remove awesome screenshot plus Ads.

I noticed them first when I visited my own page and saw ads where they shouldn’t be. My first instinct was: is this some kind of virus? but because I’m on Apple Mac, so that was not likely.

I tried to think if it I could have been tricked into installing something and then I realized. Awesome screenshot plus was a Firefox add-on I had installed when trying to make a screenshot of an entry web page (Note, I now use a Mac app called: Pixa), so uninstalling these ads was going to be as easy as uninstalling “awesome screenshot plus”.

What to do if Filezilla crashes and you need to download an older version.

by Andrew Brett Watson
Filiezilla is a fantastic FTP program. I have been using it for years. My thanks goes out to the developer(s) for such a great product. Unfortunately it occasionally happens that bugs aren’t apparent until after an update is released. This might mean that until a more stable version replaces it, you might have to find an older version if the one you just installed crashes.

Ok. You just downloaded filezilla and it now crashes whenever you make a file transfer (or something like that) right? Today I downloaded the latest Mac OS X version (FileZilla Client 3.9) and I it is constantly crashing (freezing) on OS X 10.9.4. I have to force quit it. Going to the filezilla website wasn’t immediately fruitful either, I really had to dig to fin the download pager for older versions of fileziller.
 

Save buttons don’t work after updating to #Joomla 3.3 (SOLVED)

by Andrew Brett Watson
You just updated to Joomla 3.3 and you’ve notice that the save buttons in the module manager, extensions manager and article manager no longer work, right? Your immediate reaction: wtf? How could they allow a release which breaks the save buttons. They didn’t. Your Joomla 3.3 installation most probably works perfectly, all you need to do… is clear your browser cache and then log out of the backend and log back in.

Not compatible with photoshop: How to open a corrupt #Photoshop file that complains you can’t open it with that version #Mac #Windows.

by Andrew Brett Watson
 
Ok., Here’s the scenario. You try to open a photoshop file you saved recently (perhaps today/yesterday) and you are hit with and error “Could not complete your request because the file is not compatible with this version of Photoshop”, but you know it IS compatible because it’s the exact version of photoshop you used to create the file.

What you have is a corrupt Photoshop file. When Photoshop complains with the error that it is not compatible even though you made the file in that version, it really just means the file is corrupt.
 
Here are two possible solutions. One of which will only work on Apple Macs. Windows users skip to the second option to recover your corrupt photoshop file:
