One of the biggest nuisances with Android (Samsung phones especially) is sometimes the Cancel and Activate or Deactivate buttons are totally disabled or do not do anything clicking. When this happens
- Take the battery out
- Keep it shut off for a 2-3 minutes.
- Put the battery on and switch on the phone.
That is it. Now you should be able to deactivate or activate new device administrators.This fix applies when you cannot take the useless Lookout app from the Samsung phones.
When using a mockbin HTTPS URL you may see this error.
The remote endpoint could not be called, or the response it returned was invalid.
To fix it, switch to ‘End point is a sub domain of a domain …’
First off finish off the configuration if it is not already done by pressing Next button.
Once it is ready, it is just 2 steps to disable double tap, also known as Samsung S Voice.
- Tap “Settings.”
- Uncheck “Open via the home key.”

OS X Yosemite upgrade messed up both brew and nginx on my Mac.
The following are reasonably safer ways to fix both of them.
1. Fix brew
ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”
2. Fix nginx next
brew install nginx
brew reinstall nginx
/usr/local/bin/brew: /usr/local/Library/brew.rb: /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
$ sudo nginx
nginx: [emerg] mkdir() “/usr/local/var/run/nginx/client_body_temp” failed (2: No such file or directory)
Specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes
That error means you are trying to add unique index on a varchar(255) utf8mb4 column. In utf8mb4 column, each character needs 4 bytes. So 255 characters means 1020 bytes. The max key length is 767 bytes.
Do you really need 255 characters?..if not reduce it.
change_column :attachments, :message_uuid, :string, :limit => 38
If you really need all 255 characters, consider using this innodb setting.

Hunk means a piece of change in the Git world. Stage hunk means it is being added to the staging area.
Discard Hunk means remove the change without trace.
Replace the word ‘hunk’ with ‘change’ and it becomes pleasurable to follow Git.
If you don’t want to commit your change , you will have to discard your changes (hunks). God knows why the Git geeks chose “hunk” but it is what it is. Learn to love it and other idiosyncrasies(stash,rebase, to survive in Gitland.
Sometimes the focus freaks out when capturing back of the check. A couple of things to try, in that order.
1. Enable Flash on instead of Auto.
This fixes most of the focus issues when capturing checks in the day light.
2. Keep the check on a dark background like a black paper.
3. Reduce the image size to 8M 4:3 resolution
For some reason I am getting a feeling Yahoo is becoming lesser and lesser evil(stupid) these days. Those chose to be stupid as long as they could by restricting people to forward their emails or forced users to buy Yahoo Mail Plus.
All of a sudden it is now free and easy to forward all your long last yahoo emails to Gmail or other alternatives
