A few people have asked me about printing from an iPad. You can; sort of.
In order to print from an iPad you need an AirPrint enabled printer. The list is short but growing quickly. To learn more about iPad printing and see a list of compatible printers you can click here.

Thank you for the memories.
Thank you for inspiration.
I am me in part because of you.
This is a great example of why I love the web: occasionally things pop up that have no “real” value but are a lot of fun; like howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com.
The sole purpose of this site is to let you know “How many people are in space right now”.
Talk about Digital Simple! Have a great weekend!
Recently I’ve been working to de-clutter my life; my digital life especially. One way I do this is to keep my computer desktop clean. Another way is to have a simple, minimal desktop image give me a laugh in between projects.
You can see and download the whole collection at SimpleDesktops.com. Thanks for making my day inside a little better.
Passwords are a challenge. They need to be complicated enough to be “secure”, simple enough to remember. It’s a constant struggle for me as a computer user and network administrator to not only encourage “stronger” passwords but to use them myself.
I recently started using a password manager which is a huge help to me; we’ll get to what that is later. Right now I wanted to show you something kinda fun. It’s a website that shows you (relatively) how strong your password is.
Don’t worry, they don’t store or send your password anywhere. So visit howsecureismypassword.net and see what it says. Happy Monday!

The FixIt Center is full of quick fixes to common problems. Like most Microsoft products and sites, it’s not intuitive, but once you get the hang of it and find what you’re looking for it’s Simple to fix things that may not be working right on your computer. A few of my often-used.
There may not be a solution to the Windows issue(s) you may be having; but Fixit is a Simple place to start looking!
I started getting a cold yesterday; it was enough to keep me home today. Thankfully…
- I can change my voicemail message (remotely) to let people know I’m out
- I can check my email when I need to.
Two simple ways to keep the workload manageable when I go back. Have a good weekend.

Sometimes out walking around I see something and think “that would be a great color pallet for _____”. Unfortunately I’m not very good at that sort of thing. Thankfully I have help with pictaculous.com.
It’s THAT simple. Take a picture, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and wait for the email. It turns this…
You can do this from the email on your computer too; or visit the website – pictaculous.com – and upload the picture directly. Like I said; Simple color choices.
I’ve had several occasions recently when someone asked me to remind them about something down the road. I’m nothing if not forgetful so I rely on ohdontforget.com to help me out.
Enter the destination number, set a date, enter your message. Nice and Simple reminders.
