FireFox3 and YouTube 2 second playback problem

August 31st, 2008

I don’t know if you experienced this problem but I certainly did.

Numerous searches turned up random and contradictory help "Upgrade this! Uninstall that! reboot reboot reboot!"

Err… Yea, I’ll opt for not doing that.

Real simple – Disable, Re-Enable and Refresh – Nothing special required!

And a simple walk-thru



Within FireFox go to Tools

Then select Add-ons









Then find your "Shockwave Flash" plugin

Click "Disable"




Then click on "Enable"

And open up your YouTube displaying page, refresh and you’ll find your video will suddenly start working!



This has been tested to work on FF3 on both XP as well as Vista – So good luck!

Get a Prius and Go Further, Faster!

So, I’ve had this Prius since 2006 (I held off until that point for the Tax deduction)

But I thought I’d finally publish my photos especially since I finally got around to getting my pkguild plate within the last year or so.

So if you happen to see me on the road, say hi!


Like my shiny NetApp plate cover? :)

Recently I received an email stating "The word is not out yet on scores for 071-652 – Stay tuned for details!"

Well, the details are HERE!

For those of you took the beta exam of TS: Windows Server Virtualization, Configuring (071-652) you can now login to Prometric and find out your score!

It’ll look similar to this below!


For those of you who passed – Congratulations!

For those of you who didn’t, there will likely be a lot of good and viable collateral to take the exam going forward, so keep your Hyper-V skillz up to par!

A blog to remember

I’ve posted about some NetApp blogs before – Wait, I’m doing it again!

While there are the best of breed blogs which you can easily find here:


There are also some additional ones in our Communities.


So, I encourage you to check out the Community Blogs as well as the community as a whole.  It’s a great resource to ask questions, answer questions and find out all-round general incite into what is going on here, there, and everywhere!



Oh, and don’t forget about that Accelerate conference! :)

Registration is key!

Certification Mailing List?!

August 28th, 2008
by Christopher Kusek (PKGuild)

So as you may know I will actively write about Certification related things and free exams as I find them.    What some of you might not know is that I do also send email notifications out to a number of folks I know informing them of the updates, posts, new exams, etc.

However, that’s been ad-hoc usually driven by me to inform my friends, associates and others I’ve worked with and met over the years.

On the flip-side of that (as I sometimes am delayed in posting about the exams, or emailing – vice versa)  Anyone who does want to be added to my mailing list about various things in certification.   The consideration is open for you to simply ask to receive the mailing :)

No matter what I’ll continue to send email blasts (not too often, this is as I encounter them) so it’s not spam and it’s opt-in and opt-out entirely on your own!

I already mail it out, so it’s not a problem for me to add your address to my Outlook created list :) (~250 or so people currently receive it)

So, let me know! comment here, shoot me an email, whatever :)


Good luck testing!
