7 years of blogging

But not from Tibet.
Today it is 7 years from the my first post, it was about the worst IT conference i ever seen.
I could add this: the downloads instead of an ftp, some cloud hosting, were possible only using a Windows application with an awkward interface, something as a treasure hunt in a tree interface: i was not able to download something.
This conference was my first encounter with Node.js, a demonstration with running numbers where i understood nothing.
But the worst part was the fact that this conference was not free..and they requested to send via fax my credit card numbers! obviously i closed the bill via a bank transfer.
Fortunately in the past years no more experiences as this.

Ludwig search engine

An interesting search engine is Ludwig.
Created from an Italian startup, it is very useful if you are not mother language and there is a doubt about an English sentence.

WordPress post from Word 2016

It was some times that i was posting on my blog directly, not from Microsoft Word.
I don’t remember when, but trying to post something from Word, using the Blog template, I got “Word cannot register your account”.
Tipically when you try to post from Word it is required to log in, the address was http://<yourwordpressblog>//xmlrpc.php and then the WordPress user and password.
After some attemps, i realized that WordPress is now using https: so the address to which post is https://<yourwordpressblog>//xmlrpc.php

Windows 10 taskbar problems

Last July i updated my Windows 8.1 to 10, occasionally i noticed that on the taskbar was not present the alimentation icon; when was happening this problem Win 10 was not responding and i resolved the thing with a brute shutdown.
My installation is very slow to start, and i tried some operations; as a last resort yesterday i tried a registry defragmentation but this time the taskbar was dead: clicking on the start menu nothing, i was able to right clic the taskbar and change the properties.
From the other hand , the icons on desktop were working.
Before inserting the Windows 10 DVD and format, i tried to launch from Task Manager (fortunately i was able to right-clic the taskbar) an cmd console (Run New Task) with administrative privileges, and at the prompt:

sfc /scannow

Then i tried to reinstall all using PowerShell , launching powershell and inside the powershell prompt with the command:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach{Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

Some complains about the fact that some installed software was more recent than the registry version, but my taskbar is now working.
Ok, still slow to start…but my new notebook should be ready this week.
