reCAPTCHA Installed On My WordPress Blog – Fuck You Comment Spam

Recaptcha_logoJust installed reCAPTCHA plugin for on my WordPress and it works and integrates “B E A Utifully” with my current theme and looks cool. A lot less work for my Akismet plugin now. Wonder how the two plugins would complement each other if at all.

Upload Any File to Google Docs

Google promised uploading any file format to Docs which is kind of like a backup network GDRIVE. It promised to roll out this feature in a couple of weeks. Hasn’t it been two weeks already and where is my option to upload any file? Another thing that they’re yet to deliver on is annotations for my Google Analytics.

Update 1: According to the Google blog post about this, not it hasn’t been 2 weeks yet. I was just getting impatient.

Update 2: Hope everyone has file upload on their Google docs by now. I just got mine yesterday. (01/24/2010)

Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw

I used to have a Nikon D90 Digital SLR camera and I usually had the image output set to JPEG+RAW which produces a JPEG image and a RAW image simultaneously whenever I take a picture. For post-processing I used Adobe Photoshop CS4. But the first time I tried to open a RAW image it gives you an error message that says, “could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document” and exits.

Here’s the step-by-step fix:

  • Exit Adobe Photoshop CS4.
  • Download the Camera Raw plug-in from the Adobe site.
  • Extract it if its in a zip file.
  • You should have a single file with a .8bi extension now.
  • Move this file to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-ins\File Formats, assuming that you have Adobe Photoshop CS4 installed using the default path.
  • Re-open Adobe Photoshop CS4.

You should be able to open RAW files like any other files now.
