For the past year I've been completely unsuccessful in creating and maintaining a ComEd acount to pay my electric/power bills. I've made three different accounts but can never seem to sign in.

I've called support and even email their technical team but only response I ever got was:

We apologize but we are experiencing some issues with user logins

After a year of reminding myself to log online and pay on time (which was rare), I finally decided to create a new account and try once again. As i registered my account I realized what the problem was the entire time:

The have a 10 character limit on passwords but my typical password is more than 10 characters. What's even better is that while they limit the input field to 10 characters when you set...

My iPhone running OS 3.1.2 on T-Mobile stopped receiving/accepting MMS messages one day. It took me a few days to figure it out, but after I came across a forum topic I was able to fix the issue. Heres what I came up with:

  1. Open Cydia
  2. Goto Manage > Sources and add Sinful iPhone Repo (google to find the exact url) then add the Source
  3. Goto Search (in Cydia) and search for MMS and Tethering Settings 5.6 > install it
  4. Reset your network settings by Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

I had a brilliant idea the other day! Absolutely brilliant. Don't know where it came from but it might make a great iPhone app.

But nonetheless, it is something I do. And there are a lot of people like me who are similarly guilty of drunk dialing. And we all have those friends that are habitual drunk dials, yeah they are bad. BUT! But I have a solution. What is it? Install an phone application that requires authentication for phone calls made after a certain time at night, i.e. 2am.

What the hell does that mean? Simply, if it's after 2am and you're trying to make a call then...

Why I Love Linksys:

I love Linksys routers! Really. Everytime I'm walking around with my iPhone in my pocket or I'm at a place with my laptop I always find a new open network called Linksys. Thank god! Seriously, Linksys you are the very reason I am able to access the internet wherever I am. More importantly, thank you to that person who installed that network without any regards to security. By the way, somebody probably stole your identity, credit card info, and everything else you have! Sorry, i didn't do it, though.

Why I Hate Linksys:

The other day I bought a new Linksys wireless router for our new condo downtown. I've probably installed a dozen wireless routers for friends and family and I always seem to have problems. But thething is...
