Chrome stuck in Full Screen mode on OSX 10.9 Mavericks

I’ve had this a couple of times now and it’s pretty annoying. Chrome seems to get stuck on desktop 2, in full screen presentation mode. Pressing the exit full screen button on the right of the menu bar doesn’t do anything and nor does F11 or Shift-CMD-F, the Exit Presentation Mode option in the View menu is also greyed out. I have multiple monitors and I’m not quite sure what’s triggered it, but there is a bug report for it here. I haven’t restarted to trigger the issue, it’s been something else both times. When it’s happened to me I’ve managed to fix it by resetting Chrome’s settings. Hopefully the issue will be resolved in the next update, as it’s rather annoying.

Adding A Static Route On A Technicolor TG582n

Needed to add a static route to a Technicolor TG582n modem/router tonight that is being used for a fibre upgrade. There isn’t anyway to add it in the web interface I could find, however a little look in the docs I found it can easily be added via telnet. First telnet to your router:

telnet 192.168.1.254
Username : Administrator
Password : *******
-----------------------------------------------------------------
{Administrator}=>:ip rtadd dst=172.16.0.0/24 gateway=192.168.1.252 intf=lan1
{Administrator}=>saveall

There are several more options available if you need them. It will ask you for each one if you do something like…

{Administrator}=>:ip rtadd
dst = 172.16.0.0
[dstmsk] = 255.255.255.0
[label] =
[gateway] = 192.168.1.252
[intf] =
[srcintf] =
[static] =
[status] =
[metric] =
:ip rtadd dst=172.16.0.0/24 gateway=192.168.0.252

Then just do a “saveall” and you should be good. If you make a mistake or want to delete your route, you can do that with something like…

ip rtdelete dst=172.16.0.0/24 gateway=192.168.1.252

Hope that helps someone. :)

IIS 7.x “404 - File or directory not found” for .iso image files

If you get the following message when trying to download an .iso disc image from IIS 7/7.5…

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

You just need to add the MIMI type. To do this, open IIS Manager, select the server on the left, open MIME Types…

Then on the top right click Add > File name extension: .iso
MIME Type: application/octet-stream

The file should now download properly. 

Au Revoir Simone - Tell Me (Clock Opera Remix) Lyrics

Places exist
For times like this
I never need them
I never need them
Places out there
There’s magic everywhere
I never need them
I never need them
For if, just when I notice it
And it seemed, just ignored
Farther out, just when we need this
And it seems, is this just me
For if, just when I notice it
And it seemed, just ignored
Farther out, just when we need this
And it seems, is this just me

I never need them

I never need them

For if just when I notice it
And it seemed, just ignored

Farther out, just when we need this
And it seems, is this just me

For if, just when I notice it
And it seemed, just ignored

Farther out, just when we need this
And it seems, is this just me

Is this just me

Is this just me

Virgin Media Super Hub Session Data Downloaded/Uploaded Bug

Virgin Media automatically updated the firmware on my Super Hub (Netgear VMDG480 router) recently. Since then I’ve noticed that the Session Data Downloaded value has been ridiculous, like they’re showing MB as GB or something…

28TB in 8 days, 3 of which my computer was off and I was away with my laptop…

2,560GB in 2 hours 17 minutes…

Or how about 16GB in 26s…

I’ve tweeted them about it, so I’ll update this post with their response if I get one.
