Customize Blog my way, it’s so easy but I don’t think I can… really?

With the MSFT transition to wordpress I’m happy because they didn’t update there blogging service ever, at least that is how it felt.  I bet you the same functionality existed since it’s initial release and very little changed in the 3+ years it existed.

My problem is finding a blog layout I like.  It seems like theme-ing and layout are tied together.  Why can’t it be more like editing a SharePoint site, where you can quickly re-arrange objects (webparts to them) and add/remove as needed.

I simply want my current theme but I want to add my tags to the main layout but I can’t figure out how to do it.  I hope it is me…

5 minutes later…

So re-investigate and found it.  Widgets…



I looked for “tag” previously, didn’t know what tag cloud was… I should have tried it.  Well, I tried it now and yeah!



Add GPU to the Resource Monitor

Is seems to me, it would make sense to add the GPU to the  resource monitor app which as of now is Windows 7 / 2008 R2.

I’m ripping a DVD and supposedly it is using my GPU and CUDA.  But I can’t see anything.

I do have 8 cores working @ 80% CPU though!!


Can’t Easily Open a OneNote Notebook stored in the “cloud”

I’ve just started using OneNote along with storing my files at and I’ve noticed it is not possible to open a file stored there from within OneNote.

File, Open knows nothing about the cloud.  I hope this changes or I learn I’m doing something wrong.

What I’m doing today is opening IE (doesn’t work in Chrome, another pain point), track down the website is not easy to find via a google search, track down the file I want which is clunky if you ask me and finally click the open with OneNote icon.  Very tedious in my opinion.
