Download: Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.1 (via Microsoft Office for Mac Downloads and Updates | Office For Mac)

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/30

If you use Mac and Windows machines, then – despite the Mac keyboards – it sometimes is handy to use Mac to remote login to a Windows machine.

For that, the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.1 (especially the download <g>) comes in handy.

Camera Shutter Life Database

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/30

The Camera Shutter Life Database can give you some indication how long the shutter of your DSLR can last.

Both my Nikon body types are listed: The site has an entry for the Nikon D300, and the D700.

At the end of each page, you can upload your own shutter counts.

Mouse cursor sometimes invisible when running an XP guest in VMware Workstation/Player: Invisible Mouse Cursor on Text Editors « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of Wiert stuff

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/30

The  RDP to VMware host running an XP guest: Invisible Mouse Cursor on Text Editors problem is not limited to RDP-ing into the VMware host, but also happens on some hosts themselves (including my ThinkPad W701 running Windows 7 x64).

This  VMware Communities: Invisible Mouse Cursor on Text Editors … thread (that has a different host configuration: Vista) comes up with 2 different solutions that both work:

  • Make your Windows XP mouse scheme the “Windows Black (system scheme)”
  • Put the Windowx XP video hardware acceleration one position below maximum.

Since less hardware acceleration also means far less performance, I’ve opted for the first solution.

De “betrouwbare” overheid: Regeling vitaliteitssparen bekend

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/29

Regeling vitaliteitssparen bekend. Ofwel: de levensloopregeling (die bedoeld was voor de lange termijn) wordt afgeschaft en alles wat je er aan geld in hebt zitten moet je volgend jaar opmaken.

Zie je al die werkgevers al voor je die nu ineens het verzoek krijgen van werknemers die in 1 jaar meer dan een half jaar levensloopverlof willen opnemen?

Het is de zoveelste keer dat de overheid zich als een onbetrouwbare partij toont.

Deze keer schaadt het voor de verandering niet 1 partij: het pakt in 1 klap zowel werknemers als werkgevers.

Hoe triest ook: Ik begrijp wel dat een boel mensen zich zo langzamerhand steeds minder van de overheid aantrekken.
