WordPress Simple Theme – Page Date Edit

I've been trying to get the look and feel of this site to a point where I'm happy again and something that has bothered me for some time now is the date at the top of the pages. This was a weird theme decision in my opinion. For what reason would a "static?" page need to have a date at the top of it? Development and coding are not in my wheelhouse but I've always been to understand php and some other languages well enough that I can typically make small changes. In this case, I was able to remove the date from the top of the Page Template (page.php) file. To do this, remove <?php the_date(); ?) from the page.php template.  Appearance --> Editor --> Page Template (page.php) Click…

XenCenter Issue after upgrading to Windows 10

Windows, XenServer
After upgrading to Windows 10 on my main work computer, I could no longer connect to 2 XenServer 6.2 hosts and found out that the error was "Could not create SSL/TLS Secure Channel".  After a bit of lazy searching I found a forum post that fixed the problem. Forum Post The actual fix for this is as follows. service xapissl stop mv /etc/xensource/xapi-ssl.pem /etc/xensource/xapi-ssl.pem.bak /opt/xensource/libexec/generate_ssl_cert "/etc/xensource/xapi-ssl.pem" '' service xapissl start xe-toolstack-restart Replace the with the IP of the server host you are attempting to fix. This should resolve your ability to connect from XenCenter.

Google Chrome Pilot Program

A few days ago I received a pretty new Google Chrome Notebook model CR-48.  I was, completely caught off guard by a very nicely packaged device sitting the table when I got home.  I still had no idea what I was because I forgot that I signed up for this program.  Ecstatic doesn't quite cut how happy I was when I discovered what it was.  I was actually selected as a Google Chrome Notebook pilot user.  I doubt this is a rare thing, however I almost never get selected to test stuff that I think is cool. So far the experience has been pretty good.  When I first booted the system, I had a bit of a hard time connecting to my wireless.  I have a WRT-160N running DD-WRT with…
