Remove Skydrive integration from Office 2013

I’m sick of Office 13 (Word) prompting for credentials repeatedly every min.

Here’s how i removed the prompt : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj683102.aspx

also did:

NONE OF THE ABOVE ARE WORKING FOR ME YET (haven’t resterted the machine)..

Ok so i found that this stupid prompt comes up for the 1st time only when you go to File->Open and click on the SkyDrive Prompt…

This is when it knows that u want SkyDrive integration and hence it checks for it every min since then till the end of time..unless ofcourse the auth works which won’t in my off….

Well what i tried today was to install Office 2010 Pro Plus again and found that it installed it in parallel..so far so good…this resolved my Outlook – Communicator 2007 sync issues as not with Outlook 2010 it worked like a charm….

But sadly, after having used 2013 for a week now, there was no way in hell that i was going back to 2010 and so it was all a waste…

But then when i opened word 13 again but it still prompted for Skydrive login…

So then uninstalled 2010 and 2013 both and then installed 2013 back fresh after deleting the folder:  C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office

But still getting the stupid prompt…

anyways reverting to 2010 for now..thanks microsoft…

Found another STUPID thing that i had done…
so goto file -> account and u’ll find user info (for me its my ms account which it says cannot be removed…) and then there is the Connected Services tab…where i had added my live account when i first installed office 13..
it had somehow remembered it …and was trying to connect to it every min…
and as live accounts are not allowed in intranet, it was failing..

anyways i then removed it and now everything is good….

Aero Themes Disabled in Windows 7

After i restarted my Win 7 PC (running Aero fine), it launced with the basic theme and Aero themes were disabled.

I tried:

1. Please try this to see if it fixes your problem:

  1. Go to your control panel and click on Performance Information and Tools.
  2. When the window pops up, look at the very bottom of the Performance Information and Tools window, in the right-hand side, for a link that says Re-run the assessment and Click on that link
  3. Windows will run through a series of test that will cause your display to flicker and flash but that is normal for that assessment test.
2.
Run “services.msc”, ensure the “Themes” service is Automatic (and Started). That is the Windows 7 default mode for this Service.

3.
 If you Right-click on Computer, Properties, left margin Advanced system settings, then Settings button in Performance section. On Visual Effects tab, Adjust for Best performance, you may end up with this issue once you Log Off or Restart. [ I don’t recommend that option, or playing too much with de-selecting all but a few of the Custom options.

Lo-Dash

Another JS Lib that i came across today…
its rplacing JQuery, with the justification that its lighter..how light ?

I downloaded :

lodash.underscore.min.js 16KB
lodash.compat.min.js   25KB
lodash.min.js 23KB

jquery-2.0.3.min.js 82 KB

so yes that’s justified….

Lo-Dash

A utility library delivering consistency, customizationperformance, & extras.

Created as a fork of the Underscore project, Lo-Dash has grown in features and popularity, while remaining faithful to its original tenets. Unlike most libraries, Lo-Dash eschews almost all native iteration methods in favor of simplified loops, resulting in tight, lean code.
ref: http://kitcambridge.be/blog/say-hello-to-lo-dash/

I created Lo-Dash to provide more consistent cross-environment iteration support for arrays, strings, objects, and arguments objects1. It has since become a superset of Underscore, providing more consistent API behavior, more features (like AMD support, deep clone, and deep merge), more thoroughdocumentation and unit tests (tests which run in Node, Ringo, Rhino, Narwhal, PhantomJS, and browsers), better overall performance and optimizations for large arrays/object iteration, and more flexibility with custom builds and template pre-compilation utilities.

MQ

All subs have the same Delivery Q. Hence all subs will get all the msg. and the the subs id is pulled from the msg and published to the 2nd Q with that ID that’s the user’s id.

FileSystem API HTML5

FileSystem API  is a HTML 5 feature allowing for storing data in the file system,

The use case i have is to share data of my site between IE and Chrome (where site is opened). I need this so that alerts can be shared between browsers and hence if user does something in one place it is immediately reflected in the other instance (open in the other browser).

For this i plan to use the FileSystem API…

This use case is not a part of: http://www.w3.org/TR/file-system-api/#use-cases

It is supported only in IE 10+

BEST: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/toying-with-the-html5-filesystem-api/

Ok so basically this is only for creating and playing with files on the cloud/ app server that hosts the site and NOT THE LOCAL FILE SYSTEM, which is what i need.

To check this, go to http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/file/filesystem/ and in the demo. create some files and in chrome inspector, see that the files are created at:

As for my need
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3936736/html5-offline-storage-file-storage-directories-and-filesystem-api

For security reasons you can’t write files to a user’s local filesystem in case it gets used for nefarious purposes by evil people.
That’s not likely to change, and that’s a good thing.
All Hell Breaks here:
With the FileSystem API, a web app can create, read, navigate, and write to a sandboxed section of the user’s local file system.

TO DO :
Note that the above url is creating a PERSISTENT storage but what got me frustrated was window.TEMPORARY hence that”s y maybe i wasn’t seeing anything.

so do try this : http://www.adobe.com/devnet/html5/articles/real-world-example-html5-filesystem-api.html
as it would be different..hoopefully
FInally i am exhausted and just want to say that i saw some crap here: C:\Users\khematar\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\File System

but it wasn’t the dir etc that i had created…
