Sharepoint Crashing My Browser

I was having a heck of a time with Sharepoint. Every time I would click on a document, my browser would crash. The only way I was able to get a document to open was to right-click on it and open it in a new window. Needless to say, this was really annoying!

I found a Microsoft KB article that solved the problem.

Just in case someone searches the interweb with the error code I was getting, it was: 0xc06d007f.

ScribeFire - Worth It?

I'm taking a look at the ScribeFire extension for FireFox to see how I like it. It would be nice to have a tool integrated with the browser to write blog posts quickly and easily.

The coolest feature is that I can drag-and-drop content from web pages into a blog post. That is pretty darn compelling.

We will see how it goes!

How to Install Pavers

We have had a project lined up to extend the patio in our backyard. We were thinking of just having it done with concrete, which is what our existing patio is made of.

After looking at different contractors for the job, it was way more expensive than we had hoped. Now, we are thinking of a do-it-yourself project using pavers. I installed a natural stone flower bed border around the front and side of our house and it turned out really well.

This project would be a little more involved in some ways, but easier in others.

Maybe I'll get some before and after pictures out here. :)

Nail Pops

We have a few places in our house where drywall nails are beginning to rear their ugly heads. I've never done this kind of work before, but it looks like it's a pretty easy fix.

We also have one area where the drywall tape is beginning to separate from the wall. I may need to undertake that project too.

I actually know a great guy who does small drywall repair. I just know I can save a good bit of money if I do it myself. The materials themselves are really cheap.
