3 things to do when text message forwarding isn’t working on your iPhone

What’s up! Happy New Year everyone.

Today I want to talk about Text Message Forwarding on your iPhone and some problems you might have experienced with it.

So, I don’t know if you knew this or not but when Apple dropped iOS 8.1 on us it included a pretty awesome feature known as SMS Sharing (or Text Message Forwarding with Continuity).  When you turn this thing on you’ll never miss a text message because all your texts will show up on all your Apple devices.

How to undo a Firefox Restore/Refresh/Reset

How to undo a firefox restore, refresh or reset

I was just having one of those days man.

I was feeling incredibly petulant… my patience meter was at zero percent and I really didn’t want to mess with Firefox.

But alas, for some inexplicable reason this Monday morning, my Firefox browser simply wouldn’t load Javascript webpages and I couldn’t enable it in the Firefox options.  I eventually figured out a workaround but that’s not the purpose of this post.

Today I want to show you a really really stupid mistake I made and how to fix it.

You see, when my browser starting crapping out on me – I wanted a quick fix.  So I thought:

Say what’s up to PowerShell 5 (Part 27/27)

Powershell comment based help

If you’ve been reading these posts through sequentially then I have to congratulate you for making it to the end.  If you’ve been reading and following along in your own lab then you get a reverse hi-five plus a harlem shake from me because that’s awesome.  You’re a dedicated one.

Now check this out… I was trying to think how I would close this series out but I think I’ll do that with Comment-Based help.  In my opinion, this is what separates the armatures from the pro’s because it shows you really care that people know how to use your script.  You won’t leave them guessing.  Trust me – you don’t want to miss this.

In this post we’ll review the comment based help system.  Let’s do it!
