To fix this, right click the broken image link from the Visual studio work item description pane, then copy the link from the properties dialog (it looks like a label, but you can select all on it by right mouse clicking).

Then simply copy and paste that into Internet Explorer bar, and when prompted enter your credentials.

Next, back in Visual Studio, just click the refresh work item button on the header of the work item window, and do this once for each in line image in the description.

Android mediaserver process killing battery life


If this happens to you, then do the following

  1. Force stop on Settings, Applications, All, Media Storage.
  2. Clear Cache and Clear Data, for the Media Storage application
  3. Unmount SD card
  4. Take out your sd card and put it in computer
  5. Find the LOST.DIR folder and delete it from the card
  6. Put the card back into the phone
  7. Reboot the phone
Got this from here...

Solution 1. Clear media storage data

The simplest solution is to clear media storage database and let it restart the process from scratch. Chances are this will fix most of the issues with Mediascanner/Mediaserver. Do the following, and it should help ease-out the pain:
Settings > applications > Media Storage > clear data, force stop and reboot.

Visual Studio Work Item Images broken

The case of the missing image…

image

Turns out this was due to my old windows credentials being cached on the tfs server credentials cache.

To fix this, I logged onto the tfs server directly via my admin account and updated the credentials there in the windows credentials manager.

Also ran fiddler in the background and cleared the winnet cache as well

Then it refresh a few times on the work item ticket back in visual studio, and hey presto they are all showing again.

DELL 968 Printer problem–Cartridge slams against printer wall

Fix was as simple as removing the cartridges, then turing off the printer at the plug socket on the wall, then squeezing the drive belt and computer cables that connects to the cartridge compartment, with my finger and thumb a few times.

Many thanks to the forums for posting this fix here, has saved me the cost of a new printer …
