I recently wrote about a problem with Madden 25 not saving games when playing in offline career mode. It didn’t happen every time, but it happened often enough to be a huge annoyance — but not consistently enough for me to diagnose.
I finally got around to upgrading my retina MacBook Pro (rMBP) to Mavericks (OS X 10.9). After waiting (and waiting!) patiently for the 5.3Gb download, the upgrade process was a snap. If only we had a faster connection!
We got an Xbox One for Christmas and I’ve been playing a fair amount of Madden 25 with our boys. One of our favorite things to do is to set up franchises in offline career mode and create our own teams via the fantasy draft.
My son’s iPhone 5 recently started giving him problems. While it was otherwise working well, it would stop charging when he would move the phone or bump/jostle the charging cable.
We have a Sony Blu-Ray/DVD player connected to a Panasonic flat panel TV via HDMI with the audio going back from the TV to our Denon A/V receiver via TOSLINK. It’s a nice setup, but the audio is out of sync (slightly ahead) when watching movies.
I recently started seeing a PHP-related error that kept popping up while clicking around in my WordPress dashboard. Whenever I’d toggle a plugin, change themes, try to preview a post, it would pop up. How very annoying.
Yesterday afternoon, my son reported that his Asus laptop wouldn’t charge. It’s about a year and a half old and has shown no other signs of trouble. A bit of basic troubleshooting suggested that it was the laptop itself, not the charger.
I just ran into an annoying but easily solved problem with our DirecTV system. I went to turn on the TV this morning and got an error message advising me that our TV doesn’t support the program’s content protection. On every channel.
