Easier way to “how to solve stuck iPad keeping asking for Exchange password”

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/02/19

I wrote before on How to solve stuck iPad keeping asking for Exchange password: reset your iPad (or iPod/iPhone if it happens with those).

Actually, you should first verify if your Outlook Web Access still works with the same password, and if it does, then try to restart your iPad/iPod/iPhone, and if that fails, reset it:

Restarting your device

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red “slide to power off” slider appears, and then slide the slider.

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Note: Reset your device only if you are unable to restart it.

Resetting your device

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.


via iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Turning off and on (restarting) and resetting.

Vista and up: CardGames.dll (was: Delphi – back in 1996 – CARDS.DLL component wrapper in Delphi 1 and 2!)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/02/19

About 3 years ago, I wrote a small article about the Cards.dll that I encapsulated even longer ago.

I just did some looking around to see on which versions of Windows Cards.dll was still available, as Card.dll has been there since the Windows 16-bit era.

Conclusion: this C# example shows was available on Windows XP, but it seems not available on Windows Vista and up.

The successor is CardGames.dll, which is far bigger than Cards.dll, only has resources (but way more than Cards.dll), and no code.

I’ll probably use XN Resource Editor 3.1 for some investigation later on to see how to get some demos running on more modern versions of Windows (:
