Recently started having an issue using my clipboard in OWA (Outlook Web Access). I wasn’t able to paste, either via keyboard shortcut or right-click menu. I would have to first paste into a blank word document and then highlight and drag the text into the OWA editor window. I’m not sure if its related to Windows 8 or the 8.1 upgrade, Internet Explorer 11, or the Exchange 2013 environment. Regardless, this is how I worked around the problem. Read More

Windows, (Disable) Nagle’s Algorithm, and gaming…

Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X
Along the way I’m finding some useful utilities that help me better utilize my system how I want. Because I have a 320GB drive and a 750GB drive, I partitioned the 320GB in half (150GB~ HFS+ for OSX and 150GB~ NTFS for Vista). I will document how I formatted these volumes this way when I get around to doing the retail installation of OSX.
Anyways, I use the 750GB drive as a data/documents storage volume for both OSes formatted as NTFS. I formatted it NTFS because out of the box OSX can view NTFS volumes but not write to them, whereas Windows can’t even view HFS+ volumes (out of the box).
Since you can already view NTFS volumes mounted on your desktop in OSX just as you would any other HFS+ volume, the only aspect left is writing to it. Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X is a lightweight driver that allows you to write to NTFS formatted volumes within OSX just as you would a HFS+ volume, its seemless and doesn’t require launching of an application.
You can also use the included MacBrowser to read/write to your HFS+ formatted volumes while in Windows.
