Blackberry Java Exception

    A Blackberry was handed to me, that wouldn't turn on the Bluetooth on the device.  When I would click to turn it on...it would try and then uncheck the box and show me a red X.  Going to the Bluetooth options or attempting to connect the Bluetooth would do nothing...I could click and click and nothing would happen.  When I rebooted the [...]

Q&A Monday: Re: Looking for a Job

On February 5th 2010, I did a blog, talking about my experiences and some tips about looking for a job and I got the following question.  Rather than just answer the questions in the comments, I thought it would warrant an follow up entry.  Though I got e-mails saying the tips helped, I also got the following call for help.

Like me you may have abandoned the Internet Explorer browser for the more secure Firefox.  Well if you recently updated your computer, Microsoft may have snuck a vulnerability into Firefox without even telling you.  If you take a look at the installed add-ons in Firefox you might notice an add-on called Microsoft .net Framework Assistant.
