Print Info from Meridian Mail

Part of my Job is adminstering a Meridian Mail Voicemail system. Occasionally I have to print information that I'm searching for.

Using Procomm Plus, It's possible to print this infromation.

  1. Create a Generic / Text Only Printer. Do this (on Windows XP)by: 
    1. Select Add a Printer
    2. Hit next on the Wizard, Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer", Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play Printer" and hit Next 
    3. In the "Use the Following Port:" dialog, from the drop down box, select FILE: (Print to File) and press Next.
    4. In the next screen, From the Manufacturer select Generic and in the Model box select Generic / Text Only and hit Next.
    5. Hit Next on the rest of the dialog boxes, and you should be done. You might want to change the Default printer question to No
  2. In Procomm, select the Generic Text Only Printer in the Printer Setup dialog
  3. In Notepad, type out the path of the file you want to save it to, and put copy it to the clipboard.
  4. Select Print from Procomm
  5. A box will pop up asking for the filename. Paste the filename you prepared in step 3 into this box. You have to do this VERY quickly.
  6. Leave it alone until Meridian Mail stops saying Working.

Embed a Slideshow from Picasa Web / Google Plus

One of the great features of Picasa Web was that you could embed a Flash slideshow of your albums. Google would even give you the code to do it.  There was a button that said Embed and it would give you the code. Just cut and paste and you were done. With the migration to Google Plus Photos, this disappeared. Here's a work around. Use the following link to get back to the original PicasaWeb site. https://picasaweb.google.com/ lh/myphotos?noredirect=1 Hopefully the embed button makes a re-appearance, or Google leaves the old page up forever. *******UPDATE******* One of the commenters below posted this website. http://www.slidemypics.com/ It seems to work pretty good!

WPAD does not resolve in DNS

At work, we're doing a POC (proof of concept) with a web-proxy, specifically Ironport Websecurity Appliance. Like most all proxies, you have to get the traffic from the client to the proxy. It supports transparent traffic redirection, but we're looking at using WPAD instead. However, when I created the WPAD DNS entry, it didn't resolve. C:\>ping wpad Ping request could not find host wpad. Please check the name and try again. C:\>nslookup wpad <DNSServer1> Server: <DNSServer1>.domain.net Address: <IPofDNSServer1> *** <DNSServer1>.domain.net can't find wpad: Non-existent domain This of course, is a big problem. It took a little investigating, but I found the cause. Windows Server 2008 introduced a new feature, called "Global Query Block list", which prevents some arbitrary machine from registering the DNS name of WPAD. This is a good security feature, as it prevents someone from just joining your network, and setting himsel
