How to add Facebook Interests to your iPhone Navigation Menu!

I couldn't easily or intuitively figure it out in the app, and I just happened to stumble on the fix...

  • Login to on a computer
  • Point your mouse over your "Interest" you want to add in the navigation on the left hand side.
  • click the pencil to the left and "add to favorites".
  • It will add to the "Favorites" section of your navigation.
  • Now check your iPhone and it's there too!

hud tapi not installing / hanging - fixed

I had a weird issue where my fonality HUD tapi client wasn’t installing… it would sit at installing and never do anything.  I fired up Process Explorer (by Sysinternals), found the installer process (I think the name was tapi_installer.exe (on my system it was tapi_installer_x64.exe), and noticed it was “Suspended”.  I clicked right-clicked, and  hit “resume”, and the installer authenticator popped up.  Once I said yes to the installation, everything installed successfully.  Drove me crazy, and didn’t find any posts on it, so I figured I would post a quick one.  Hope this helps someone.

Notepad++ : Fixing global font size saving (and MORE)


I had an issue where my global font size was not saving in Notepad++(after going to Style Configurator).  It was pretty frustrating, and the fix is actually super-simple! 

·         All you have to do is right-click Notepad++, and Run as Administrator

Once the program loads, go into settings, change the font-size, and save & close.  Afterwards, when you load notepad++ as you normally would, the settings will be just as you really wanted!


Here’s another problem I fixed while correcting this issue.  A couple days back, I was trying to tell Notepad++ to always open Smarty Template Engine files (extension = .tpl) as an HTML file instead of as normal text file (for Syntax Highlighting purposes).  Notepad++ would never save my settings, and I’d have to change my 100+ tpl file settings every time re-loaded (not really, but you get the picture J).

After running as administrator (described above), I then went back to Settings > style configurator > language > html > User ext [input box] > typing "tpl" (without quotes or a preceding period).  This process finally worked for adding a custom extension that should be associated with a Language Syntax Highlight file.


·         This will also likely fix other "global settings" that don’t save under style configurator (and perhaps even settings > preferences, although I can’t confirm at the moment. 

·         You can also sift through the XML in the notepad++ installation directory (under program files), and method I describe here is slightly easier, IMHO.

I hope this helps you!  If so, leave a comment.  I appreciate them!

This post was inspired by a post by “Willie” (on his blog).

Teddy Roosevelt was the man.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat

great quote.
