No more InfoCraft???

by Joe on Nov 30th in Uncategorized

So InfoCraft, after 6 years in business, is closing its doors. On January 1st, we will be “Like A Boss Coding, LLC”. Why? There’s a number of reasons. InfoCraft had a bit of a rough start in the “paperwork” department. I tried to file as an LLC, but someone had a similar “sounding” name, so […]

So, I have just concluded a months-long battle with installing Hyper-V on my HP Envy H8-1414. Apparently, the Bluetooth Driver that comes preloaded is not compatible with Hyper-V.

Office isn’t activated???

by Joe on Apr 19th in Uncategorized

So I’m working along, and all of a sudden, MS Office asks me to activate my product. Never mind that it was activated months ago. So, I clicked the “Activate over the internets” button, but I got an error that said “We’re sorry, something went wrong and we can’t do this for you right now” […]

by Joe on Sep 11th in Uncategorized

Zhang et al (2009) insist that “incorporating a human computer interaction (HCI) perspective into the systems development life cycle (SDLC) is critical to information systems (IS) success and in turn to the success of businesses.” The problem, they remind us, is that typical software development progresses with the needs of the organization in mind, rather […]
