T-Mobile T-Zones Outage

Comments Off on T-Mobile T-Zones Outage

As of 8am this morning, T-Mobile seems to be having problems with their EDGE based T-Zones service. A call to T-Mobile’s customer service number confirmed this. They are said to be fixing the problem and hoping to get the service back up asap. No ETA was given.

If you are using a Windows Mobile phone you will get the “The remote party has terminated this connection” message.

UPDATE: The EDGE network is up and running as of sometime around 6:15pm.


Alternate Shortcuts to cut-copy-paste

October 15th, 2007

Did you know there are alternate shortcuts to the commonly used cut (ctrl+x), copy (ctrl+c) and paste (ctrl+v) shortcuts?

Action Shortcut Alternate Shortcut
Cut Ctrl+X Del+Shift
Copy Ctrl+C Insert+Ctrl
Paste Ctrl+V Insert+Shift

These are kind of confusing so I’m sticking to the Ctrl+ shortcuts. For those who use different keyboard layouts like Dvorák the X, C and V keys are placed far apart and awkward to use. In such cases the alternate shortcuts maybe easier to use.
