How to turn old Android tablet into high-end picture frame
A little while ago I was looking for a 10'' - 12'' digital photo frame. Just couldn't find what I wanted. Even most expensive frames were old models with low quality, low resolution screens. I suppose not many people buy these things anymore so manufacturers just stopped bothering with them...
Then I had an idea - even few year old tablets would have much higher spec and better quality screens than these horrible photo frames. And there are no shortage of apps in Google Play store that could display full screen photo slideshows.
After few hours of eBay bidding I ended up with Samsung Tab 2 10.1 tablet. It was in great condition for just around £150.
Picasa hangs while manually adding people face tags
Google Picasa started freezing while manually adding people face tags. Difficult to say when exactly it started as I wasn't using this feature for a while and Picasa by default updates automatically in the background. When I noticed the issue the version of Picasa was 3.9.137 (Built 81).
The freeze was not permanent, but I had to wait for a minute or so for the application to become responsive again. This made the manual face tagging not really practical. Task Manager wasn't showing any unusual system activity during the time when Picasa was "frozen".
Renaming Windows Server Domain Controller

Both methods are supported, but Microsoft recommends using Netdom command line tool because it reduces delay before clients can use the renamed domain controller (if you use GUI, you have to wait for AD/DNS replication to occur).
