Why does a volume and mail control called indicator applet?

Posted in Uncategorized on 22 十一月, 2010 by chauonline

I lost my volume control in the top panel of ubuntu. To restore it, I went to “Add to Panel" -> Indicator Applet, then clicked Add.

An android problem that even google techstop couldn’t fix

Posted in Uncategorized on 9 十一月, 2010 by chauonline

I couldn’t setup my google mail account with my android, with this msg:

“Can’t establish a reliable data connection to the server.  This could be a temporary problem or your SIM card may not be provisioned  for data services. If it continues, call Customer Care.”

I talked to the Techstop but they couldn’t fix it either. I googled and found the solution here and here. Basically, you have to add your account through youtube (or another app), rather than adding it though mail.

Thank God, I didn’t need to take Liberal Arts Exam when I was in HK.  Questions (a) and (b) are purely BS. They are just asking the students to find the info from the text. Question (c) is only asking the students to apply common sense.

Rename the String Values DLL and LEX to oldDLL and oldLEX (I think deleting is as good)

Got a Android Samsung Galaxy S. Couldn’t set up Google voice account

Posted in Uncategorized on 6 九月, 2010 by chauonline

I got a Samsung Galaxy a few days ago. So far I like it a lot. I especially like the physical slide keyboard and the AMOLED screen. The only problem I hit was that I couldn’t sign in to my Google voice account. I kept getting “Your account status could not be loaded. Please try again.". I googled and found the solution here.

– When the login failed, click “use a different account".
– Login with the same username/pwd.
– Then, it just worked.
