Continue XP Windows Updates until April 2019

Saw this post over on RedmondPie.  In a nut shell, add the following information to the registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\PosReady]
“Installed”=dword:00000001
Save the above text in a text file such as XP.reg (Make sure it has a .reg file extension) and double click the file to import it into the registry.  If you know how, you can also use Regedit to make the changes too.

Amazon Fire TV

Released today, Amazon Fire TV is very small, very powerful, running Android, and inexpensive.  Looks like a great alternative to Ruku, Apple TV and others in this category.

Microsoft OneNote is FREE!



I'm a pretty big user of Microsoft OneNote and am really glad to see it go free! It's a really good alternative to Evernote (I never really liked it though), and now available on every platform you have!  It's nice to have a notebook that syncs (via OneDrive, formally SkyDrive) to all your devices.

Refresh!

It's been over a year since EverydayNerd.com was posted to... Wow, it's flown by! So, instead of trying to clean up old posts, and do a lot of site cleanup, I decided to just do a complete site refresh. Don't worry, all the old posts are still around - visit http://archive.everydaynerd.com for the archive. So what am I going to be posting now? Well I'm an aspiring Android Developer, as well as a C# and PowerShell code junkie! Here and there, I'll throw in random posts about technology that grabs my interest. Not sure how many people even see this blog, but my point is to share what I think is neat and helpful, and if I can help just one person, it's worth it!
