What happened to the Import Wizard?

Posted on April 25, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 366 views

Funny thing that happened to me while doing some security testing on Project Server 2013. I was attempting to import some local resources from an .MPP file using the Import Resources to Enterprise wizard like I’ve done many many times before and the weirdest thing happened…

The current view would shift over (like it always does) but the Import Resources Wizard was missing.
Very Strange!!

How to Disable Facebook AutoPlay Video Feature

Posted on April 08, 2014 by Rolly Perreaux - 642 views

FBVideoWith the new Facebook user interface slowly being deployed, they also made a change that is a bit annoying. Whenever you scroll past a video one of your FB friends posted it would automatically play. It’s a bit scary especially when you don’t expect it and the volume on your computer is not on mute Smile

 

Here’s how you disable that “Feature”:

1. From the Facebook web page, in the top right hand corner, click on the down arrow (next to the lock icon)

2. Then click Settings.

DisableAutoPlayVideos

 

3. From the General Account Settings page, In the navigation pane (left side) click Videos.

4. In the AutoPlay Videos setting, click the down arrow and click Off.

DisableAutoPlayVideos2

 

No More AutoPlay Videos!  Smile
