    Thread of the Week:
    Here's our Thread of the Week Mission (im)Possible: you have two different FiOS networks and only one printer. How do you get the printer to work with both networks? Find out here!
    Post of the Week:
    If your wireless connection keeps dropping, it could be due to interference- maybe from your neighbors! CaptainSTX has some suggestions in this thread on what could be causing the interference and what can be done to combat it so your wireless connection stays solid.
    Member of the Week:
    When users complain that their HSI / FiOS speeds are slow, one of the first things our community members will ask you is to check your speeds while wired directly into the router.  Logan8 does a great job explaining why we need to do that and what small changes you can make that may increase your speed in this thread.

    This is a very interesting question. If you have FiOS Internet and Phone-- can you get the basic TV channels for free? The short answer is no- find out the details why here.
    Post of the Week:
    You know I love some common sense advice, and that is what Hubrisnxs offers here on what to do to help curb email spam. I admit, I haven't done some of these things, until now!
    Member of the Week:
    Did you know there is a difference between bytes and bits? I didn't, but Smith6612 does- and that makes him our Member of the Week thanks to his response to a thread about slow internet speeds.

    What is the update number causing this issue?
    Sounds very similar to this issue:
    http://blogs.vmware.com/workstation/2014/10/workstation-10-issue-recent-microsoft-windows-8-1-update.html
    Are you running the most recent version of VMware Workstation 10?
    For more support for VMware products, a better place is the VMware forums, as this forum is for Windows 8.x Hyper-V. (

    I am honored to be on the list, however I wish it wasn't for the reason it was.
    Unmentioned in your post is the outpouring of support for the Funimation channel.  This channels cancellation, due to what is quickly turning out to be a less than factual reason of 'low viewership' from Verizon, has mobilized many of your customers.  In fact, I'm sure that most of the people in your list this week were kudo'ed for posts in 1 of 2 threads:
    Funimation Canceled!
    Save Funimation Petition
    If we are to look at the pure numbers, at the time of this writing those 2 threads combined for a total of nearly 950 kudos and 3800+ views.  Even more telling:  198 of the 200 most kudo'ed posts are people SUPPORTING Funimation Channel and against Verizon's decision to cancel the channel.  (http://forums.verizon.com/t5/kudos/leaderboardpage/board-id/FiOS_TV_Entertainment/timerange/one_mont...
    IMHO (and no offense to Justin and his very helpful document) either of these 2 would have made a much more appropriate 'Thread of the week'.

    Patrick,
    Thanks my session verify function was causing the problem and I have removed it temporarily from my authentication scheme.
    I am using the "check_timeout" function that was developed a number of years ago as part of a "How To" section in the old HTMLdb days. I knew there was an issue with this routine as the newer versions of the browsers handle cookies differently and I was going to redevelop it at some point. Do you know which part of the function causes the issue?
    Many Thanks,
    Jon
    FUNCTION check_timeout
    RETURN BOOLEAN
    AS
    l_session_expire VARCHAR2(256) := NULL;
    l_cookie_exists BOOLEAN := TRUE;
    BEGIN
    IF htmldb_custom_auth.get_user IS NULL THEN
    RETURN TRUE;
    END IF;
    BEGIN
    l_session_expire := owa_cookie.get('HTMLDB_IDLE_SESSION').vals(1);
    EXCEPTION WHEN NO_DATA_FOUND THEN
    l_cookie_exists := FALSE; -- no cookie set, assume first page visit after login
    END;
    IF l_cookie_exists
    AND TO_DATE(l_session_expire,'DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI:SS') < SYSDATE
    THEN
    wwv_flow.g_unrecoverable_error := TRUE;
    owa_util.redirect_url('f?p='||'500:101'); -- Note hard-coded login application and page ID 500:101

    Thank you, jtktlw, for detailing such thorugh step-by-step instructions on connecting your Xbox Live with the Actiontek GT704-WGB wireless router. 
    Most Helpful Member: 
    This would have to go out to Justin this week.  A member wanted help with "Setting up the IMG Guide to just show channels that they actually get" We were reminded at how helpful it is sometimes to point each other back to content/solutions already previously posted. Justin had written a user guide on that very topic previously with "Exploiting TV Favorites."
    Most Noteworthy Quote: 
    "In contrast to those users who claim they aren't being given the speeds they were advertised, FiOS customers in our forums indicate they're actually getting more than they paid for."  Great observation, Hubrisnxs!

    Thank you!  I noticed the MVP symbol next to my name and used my fabled tenacity to find myself on this list.  I hope my message will be of help to the possibly one other person who prefers an old TV and doesn't have HD.

  • Is there a better way to edit and create a Page Size list for InDeisgn CC 2014?

    I have about 65 iMac machines I'm responsible for at a publishing company.  The users need a specific custom Page Size list to display when setting up a new document.  It's a very long list of sizes for various products.  The only way I know how to edit this size list is to open the .xml file in Dreamweaver and edit the code.  I would like to know if there is a better way to do this for InDesign CC 2014.  At the moment I have to take this one file and install individually on all users accounts on all 65 machines.  Here is the path of the file I edit by hand:  Mac HD/Users/(User Account)/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 10.0/en_US/Pages Sizes/New Page Sizes.xml

    There is no special folder for templates. You just put them where it makes sense to you, and you access the same way you would open any existing file.
    The only functional difference between a template (.indt) and document (.indd) file is the default opening behavior. By default templates open as untitled copies and documents open as originals. You can change from one to the other just by changing the file extension.
    The advantage of using a template over a document size preset is the preset only defines a page size. The template can include multiple pages, multiple master pages, styles you want to use, objects already in place, etc. And the use of a template removes the temptation to "recycle" an old issue of a recurring project. Starting each issue fresh from a known clean template reduces the risk of accumulated minor corruption that can eventually cause a fatal problem.
