Facebook Lite Launches

Facebook Lite launched recently, and currently only for those in India and the USA. (however I am based in the UK and had no problems accessing the site).

facebook lite start

Aimed at those who have slower internet connections, the site is a slim downed version of the usual Facebook with noticeable differences being the loss of the applications bar and the left side menu. Check out some shots below of the lighter feeling Facebook.

Alice in Wonderland

The trailer for the upcoming film Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton is out next year, I’m not really a fan of the Disney version of the classic tale by Lewis Caroll, but I must say this version looks amazing, a treat for the eyes typical Tim Burton really.

See the Stills

Of course the film stars Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Helen Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. As well as a host of other stars, inlcluding Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, and Anne Hathaway. The role of Alice is played by Mia Wasikowska.

Adobe Errors

,,,,,,,,,

Adobe Error Message: Licensing for this product has stopped working 148:3, for the solution read on.

Recently I have been having performance issues with my Sony Vaio (VGN CR42S), but I won’t go into too much about that now.

Anywho to help with my Sony Vaio issues I turned off some of the start up options in Windows Vista.

Having done this I must have turned off some licensing program that Adobe uses.

I then tried to open up Fireworks in Adobe CS4, but was greeted with an error message instead. See error picture below. I then realized that this error was showing on all of my Adobe products, which are all 100% legit and paid for, so you can assume I was pretty miffed.

The error itself doesn’t give you much detail, all it says is that the error is a licensing problem and tells you do is go to adobe support. I did this but after a while of searching I found no help, I also didn’t really have time to e-mail or call support for help, so I quickly did a search and found a solution to the problem.

Apparently there is some licensing program or whatever that deals with Adobe, so to get rid of that annoying error message, do the following:

  • go to the start menu,
  • type in msconfig and then press enter (if you get that security pop up just press continue)
  • the system configuration utility tool will open up,
  • click on the tab that says Services.
  • click on the manufacturer to get field heading to arrange all the options via manufacturer
  • the options should now appear starting with all the manufacturers starting from A.
  • click on the option that says: FLEXnet Licensing Service, by the Acresso Software Inc. Manufacturer
  • tick the box next to it (as it is probably unchecked) (see picture below)
  • press OK,
  • you will then need to restart your system for the changes to take effect
  • hey presto your Adobe Products should be working again

This was such an easy soltution the problem but took me a little while to find so I have posted this blog entry as reference for anyone else having issues with their Adobe Licensing.
