At last HP have released basic drivers for the HP Photosmart 7150 for Vista.
They describe these as “basic” – I’ll report progress later.
This download includes a Print Driver only. This driver makes it possible to use the basic functions for the printer. HP will not be providing a Full Featured Software and Driver for this product; therefore, some functionality may be lost when you use this product with Windows Vista.
Driver is available via www.hp.com – the direct link is here.
Back to Collanos 1.1 – and the good news is that most of the bugs seem to be ironed out.
I’m now sharing several GB with my team; performance is good if tweaked.
My friend Laurence Pitt (and one of his friends) are driving this delightful Mini Metro from London to Prague. Via the Alps.
It’s all for “Charidy Mate” – so go give a few pounds – http://www.justgiving.com/beryl2prague
I’ve been asked a few times which tools I use to build the panoramic pictures.
I use Hugin with autopano-sift for control point generation. I also use enblend for smooth blending.
There is a great manual online now at the Hugin Wiki – http://wiki.panotools.org/Hugin
I spent some time this morning on the forums for the ZCM open beta.
A frequent comment is regarding downloading the ZCM ISO – it’s 4GB in size.
I recommend testing the md5 hash – I use Digest IT 2004.
I wrote last year about the 3M Privacy Filters; I’ve not worked with my laptop and confidential data on a flight in over three years.
I recently purchased the filters for my team; I must say I am impressed. They are unobtrusive – and really work.
Somehow my PGP passphrase got corrupted; there’s no way back.
PGP support tried – but my brick of a laptop needs a rebuild.
I was disappointed at how seemingly fragile the passphrase piece is; the support guy at PGP said he’d never seen it before.
Back to a new build; if it happens again I’ll be somewhat upset..
Somehow the SATA drive in my new Thinkpad is screwy. The surface test is good; but PGP Whole Disk Encryption doesn’t like it. It doesn’t recognise my passphrases.
I’m back up and kinda running on my ‘old’ ATA drive in my new laptop; it’s faster but the drive is slow and I’ve lost a little data.
I’m going to get a USB-SATA enclosure and see if I can restore the drive.
There are a few open opportunities within the ZENworks Business Unit for Product Managers.
Ideally we are looking for people who can ‘hit the ground running’.
If you need any additional information – or if you want to apply – get in touch via the Novell email address.
[Edit – the role would probably be based at one of our ZENworks Development Centres – namely Provo, UT, Boston, MA or Bangalore, India]
My usual list of housekeeping:
- install OpenOffice 2.2
- fix the map updates for the Nuvi sat-nav
- change the SSID and secure the wireless on the BT Homehub
- fix the laptop and wireless card
- provide recommendations for wireless and wired access for the work on the house
All in a days work.
