New Site Launch: PrecisionExams.com

by dcurtis 4/12/2010 3:51:00 PM

Just launched another site I've been working on: http://www.precisionexams.com/

The site utilizes progressive enhancement so if javascript and the images are disabled, a user will still be able to navigate through the site and reach all of the content (most bots from search engines fall in this category so it makes it easy for them to crawl).  I'm using the jQuery library along with several plug-ins from the jQuery community.

Precision Exams and Surveys (Precision) provides clients with the tools, analysis, and insight necessary to develop and execute high-quality assessment and learning programs, meeting the real-world needs of learning providers.

Let me know what you think.

Lenovo W510 Overheating

by dcurtis 4/5/2010 1:05:00 PM

I just purchased a Lenovo W510 and have found it to be a terrific machine so far; however, I ran into a strange problem today--I was using the machine on a docking station and I put a Logitech mini usb transmitter into one of the USB 3 ports for the first time.  Later, I had to reboot the machine, but found that I could not get past the Lenovo splash screen during the reboot.  After several failed attempts I removed the machine from the docking station and found it to be EXTREMELY hot.  I shut everything down and then submitted a case with Lenovo support. 

While waiting for them to re-contact me about the issue, I thought I'd do a search and see if anyone else had a similar problem and found a post here.  Looks like Keith had a similar issue with a Microsoft mini USB transmitter.  I removed the transmitter and voila, the system was able to boot again.  Looks like I'll only put the transmitter in either the docking station or the non-usb 3 ports going forward.

Thanks Keith!
