CSS Warp Text

Working on a new project I wanted to create a badge that would have warped text with a dynamic date. It would be a flag with the text of how long the company has been in business. They started in 1997 and I used PHP to get the current year and display in the warped text.

This site helped me accomplish this.


I took a little bit to understand how it sets the position, but when you understand it this site is incredibly helpful.

Install Godaddy SSL Certificate Into A 2010 Exchange

We got a notification from Godaddy that our SSL has been renewed and is ready to be downloaded and installed. This download will not work you will need to Re-key, wait for verification ( 30 minutes ), and install this new certificate.

  • Log into the Exchange Console and click on “New Exchange Certificate“.
  • Give the new cert a name. I prefer to match the domian the cert is for such as “mail.mydomain.com“. If the common name doesn’t match the certificate name you will get warnings when you visit the page.
  • We often don’t use the “wildcard” feature, so we leave it blank.
  • In the Exchange Configuration page we set the following settings.
    • Client Access Server ( Exchange Active Sync )
      Check “enable” and use “mail.mydomain.com“.
    • Client Access Server (Web Services, Outlook Anywhere, and Autodiscover)
      Check “Enable Web Services is enabled“.
      Check “Outlook Anywhere is enabled
      External host name for your organization
      remote.domain.com, mail.domain,com
      Check “Autodiscover used on the Internet
      Check “Short URL
      Autodiscover URL
    • Client Access Server (POP/IMAP)
      Don’t check anything. We don’t use these anymore, but you can if you need it.
    • Unified Message Server
      Do not check this.
    • Hub Transport Server
      Leave these unchecked.
    • Legacy Exchange Server
      Leave unchecked.
  • Click Next
  • Certificate Domains
    Verify the Domains and click next.
  • Organization and Location – Just fill out the company information
  • In the Certificate Configuration verify the “CN” or “Common name” is “mail.mydomain.com” and click “New“.  The certificate will complete, but it will take up to an hour to be verified. After that you can download it from Godaddy.
  • Log into the Godaddy account and to the Certificates area. Find the Cert you are looking for, select the type, and hit download.
  • Unzip the download.
  • Go back to the Exchange server, select the “pending” cert, and click on the “Complete Pending Request”.
  • Hit browse to find the “.crt” file. You will need to change file type to “All Files(*.*)
  • Select your “.crt” file and hit the “open” button.
  • Hit the complete button.
  • You can now go back to the Exchange Server and assign Services such as IIS, SMTP to the cert.

Surface Pro Won’t Charge

We had a call from a customer with 3 surface pros that were no longer charging. We discovered it was a known problem. The fix is to go into the “Device Manager” and uninstall the battery. Make sure to not remove the AC device. Restart and the correct driver will re-install. There is one more step to run a fix. This will keep this issue from coming back. We found the fix on this page.

Solved – “Cannot start Microsoft Outlook.”

We had a rough time with a customers Outlook 2016. It wouldn’t start and would give us the “Cannot start Microsoft Outlook” error. We repaired the OST and reinstalled Office 2016, but this didn’t fix the issue. It would seem like the error was fixed, but after a restart the issue would come back.

We used the following link to lead us to the right resolution.

We then downloaded the repair tool from this page.


We ran the tool and got the following message.

Which lead us to turn off IPV6.

  • Go to Control Panel
  • Click on “Network and Sharing Center”.
  • Click on the given “Network Connection”.
  • Click “Properties”.
  • On the “Networking” tab, clear the “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) check box, and then click “OK”.

Exchange – Your message can’t be delivered because delivery to this address is restricted.

We had a customer getting this bounce back error occasionally. Research lead me to an Exchange distribution group restriction.

I went into the exchanged and examined the Group Distribution List. I wasn’t able to just add the email address so I left it checked with “Accept messages from”  and checked “All senders”. I then unchecked “Require that all senders are authenticated.” I used the following article to help me with this call.

Fix operation could not be completed (error 0x00000709) Printer Error

I got this error working on clients machine. The fix was pretty easy. I used a YouTube video to get started. It took me to the Registry and had me change the permissions on a folder to “full control”, and this fixed the issue.

The issue was I was unable to remove or set a printer to be the default. The video was a good start. Made the registry change and rebooted and everything was working great. I saw the next YouTube video for the same issue; however, after this guy set the permissions to “full control” and fixed the printer issue he set the permissions back on the folder to where they were before. I am thinking this is a better way to do it.
