Solve juniter addon not working in IE11 issue

From: http://www.sevenforums.com/system-security/336325-juniper-network-connect-fails-internet-explorer-11-a.html


In my company, we have Juniper Network Connect 7.1.0 with Host Checker. Although it is not supported officially, I found a workaround.

  • Put the URL in Trusted Sites or Local Intranet zone in Internet Settings.
  • Enable Compatibility View on URL.
    • Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\PolicyList\
    • Value: “networkconnect.mycompany.com”
    • Type: REG_SZ
    • Data: “networkconnect.mycompany.com”
  • Make sure User Access Control (UAC) is enabled.

Indeed we identified that some of our users have disabled UAC on Windows 7 because they think that UAC is only an annoying useless feature that does nothing but bother them with popups. For a reason I don’t fully understand, NC seems to crash if the user is administrator of their computer and UAC is disabled. This behavior is not observed with previous versions of IE.

I recommended to enforce UAC with Group Policies and include it in the mandatory security compliance rules for all workstations.

Hope it helps! Regards!

invalid character in xcode

Quite often when I code in Xcode, I type no-break space (Option + Space / Option + Shift + Space) especially before or after square brackets or curly braces. This causes Xcode to give warning:

invalid character in source file

A workaround is to assign Option+Space and Option+Shift+Space to “Make Text Writing Direction Left ToRight” in Xcode

  • Preferences (menu)
  • Key Bindings(section)
  • Default(drop down)
  • Text(tab)
  • Writing Direction(section)
  • Make Text Writing Direction Left ToRight(command)
  • Double-click and use (+) on the right to add key bindings.

You could assign them to any other command that doesn’t have a useful effect for you.

It will make it seem that the space bar is not responding when you accidentally hold the modifier keys but that’s much less of a time waster than the compilation errors.

Install vim in mac os x

From: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21012203/gvim-or-macvim-in-mac-os-x

  • Step 1. Install homebrew from here: http://brew.sh
  • Step 1.1. Run export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
  • Step 2. Run brew update
  • Step 3. Run brew install vim && brew install macvim
  • Step 4. Run brew link macvim

You now have the latest versions of vim and macvim managed by brew. Run brew update && brew upgrade every once in a while to upgrade them.

This includes the installation of the CLI mvim and the mac application (which both point to the same thing).

I use this setup and it works like a charm. Brew even takes care of installing vim with the preferable options.
