comcast disassociate modem from account

Gave my modem to a friend, they said I needed to “disassociate it” from my account before he could use it.

Called tech support since can’t do that over the phone, they told me that it gets automatically “disassociated-ish’ with my account when my account ends, 24 hours after.



Switching service between roommates for new promo rate: how much of a pain will changeover be with our own modem? from Comcast

activemq woes

pid option is not available for this VM, using default JMX url INFO: did not match any running brokers.

this meant “activemq 5.5 doesn’t recognize newer JVM, tweak it to not pass in –pid XX at all”

ERROR: java.lang.RuntimeException: Failed to execute stop task. Reason: Failed to retrieve RMIServer stub: javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException [Root exception is java.rmi.ConnectException: Connection refused to host:; nested exception is: Connection refused (Connection refused)]

meant “activemq hasn’t had a chance to come up yet, then you can connect to it to stop it”

+ return 1

+ ‘[‘ -f /home/fs/apps/activemq/data/ ‘]’

+ echo ‘ERROR: No or outdated process id in ‘\”/home/fs/apps/activemq/data/’\”’

ERROR: No or outdated process id in ‘/home/fs/apps/activemq/data/’

meant “I had an old activemq still running to stop was getting confused” (package install mixup flub I think?)

docusign change signature/initials

If you’re “just signing” (which you probably are) it seems that you can’t.

Go figure.

So if it wants two different signatures, you’re hosed.

Only hope:  choose action “assign to different user” and email it to .a different email.  Then you can set a new initials.  Yikes.

or print it out then sign then scan? yikes.

kemal kemalcr crystal pass parameter variable to render partial

Looks like you can!

use it as a local variable

– <%= render “views/_box_movie_nik.ecr” %>
+ <%= want_name = true; render “views/_box_movie_nik.ecr” %>

if it says


In views/_box_movie_nik.ecr:9:17

9 | <%= want_name ? movie.name_with_episode : movie.episode_without_name %>
Error: read before assignment to local variable ‘want_name’


that means that somewhere you’re using it you’re not setting that variable so run with –error-trace to find it 🙂
