New Toy #2 – Solmeta N1

I decided to get a GPS for my Nikon D3100 because having to remember where pictures were taken is very helpful.  I had a bunch of pictures taken on my iPhone from a few scooter rallies I attended and they all look the same because the pictures were taken at a campground with a bunch …

My husband and I were having a discussion about gas prices and cars over the weekend.  He kept making fun of me because when I get my car, I will be paying for Premium gas vs paying Regular gas for his car.  I told him that I will be spending less money on gas on …

How Dual Monitors Affects Citrix Seamless Apps

I’ve been going crazy for the last few months trying to figure out why all the apps on the new Citrix server has been displaying the server background on any application that is in Windowed mode and the bottom is being cut off.  Today I finally found the correct solution/workaround to the issue.
