Chrome OS Always Asking for Email and 2FA Code

If you are greeted with a screen asking for your e-mail address and two-factor authorization every time you turn on or wake up your Chromebook, there is a setting you can enable that allows you to only have to enter your password when signing in. The default settings for Chrome OS will not require you to enter these additional details, but if you adjusted a few account settings, you may have unexpectedly disabled a feature and are now required to also enter your email address and the authorization code when signing in.

Remove Samsung SF350 Monitor Stand Hinge

Samsung’s SF350 monitor has one major design flaw for users who wish to mount their monitor to the wall or to a monitor arm using the VESA mount. The stand hinge that is attached to the back of the monitor where the default stand attaches to doesn’t have a way to be removed. The stand hinge interferes with the VESA mount making it so you can’t tilt the monitor properly when you are using a VESA mount to a wall or a monitor arm.

Dynamic Copyright Year when using Hugo

After the New Year I always check the footer on websites to see which sites forgot to update the copyright year. If you have a dynamic site, this shouldn’t be an issue at all since you can easily program your site to show the current year. I’ve been using Hugo for a few months to generate my static websites and wanted an easier way to update the copyright year, or better yet, not have to update the copyright year.

Uninstall OneDrive from Windows 10 in 2017

OneDrive is that pesky neighbor that keeps showing up when you don’t want them to. Microsoft keeps trying to push their various services down everyone’s throat without any easy method to get rid of it until now. In late 2016 and early 2017 an update to Microsoft Windows 10 makes it so you can easily uninstall OneDrive from Windows 10. It only took them two years to finally give users an option to get rid of an annoying popup that everyone manually disables through the registry editor.

Scraping Title and Meta Data with Scrapebox

Testing the many web pages of your site to verify that the title and description tags are set properly can seem like a daunting task. Luckily if you own Scrapebox, scraping meta information becomes a lot easier. If you don’t already own Scrapebox, I wouldn’t recommend buying it as a tool just to scrape meta information because there are cheaper options. But if you do like the other tools available inside of Scrapebox, then give it a shot.
