The Roku media player has Google's free public DNS (220.127.116.11) hard-coded into it. This is great for DNS redundancy, but totally sucks if you use an unblock service to watch Netflix abroad (see this: How to Watch Netflix in Japan). From time to time my Roku would insist on using Google's DNS, so Netflix would no longer work properly. Boooo! There are 2 comparable ways to fix this:
What follows is an outline I compiled while building an Ubuntu server for running the Joomla CMS on the Nginx web server.

I spent some time researching top-rated, but free antivirus security software for both Mac and Windows. There are far more free antivirus software solutions out there than listed here--I focused solely on those receiving positive reviews from respectable sites and/or testing labs. I also tried to limit the search to those offering both Mac and Windows versions.
This hunt was sparked by a personal incident where malware slipped past my AV software defenses. For obvious reasons that software did NOT make the cut. I needed to find something better, so the hunt began. Here's the list I compiled along with my snap impressions.
Once in a while I am unable to delete an email message on my iPhone. It throws an "unable to move message to trash" error message. I use the normal iPhone Mail app and have an MS Exchange mailbox that syncs with my office email.
While this problem was well-documented for IMAP mailboxes, I could not find a solution for MS Exchange mailboxes.
Turn off the mail sync, then turn it back on.
* Mail, Contact, Calendars
* Touch your Exchange email account. You'll see a list of the things it syncs (e.g. Mail, Contacts, Calendars, etc.).
* Turn off the mail sync.
* Open the Mail app to confirm that your Exchange mailbox is no longer there.
* Return to the settings and switch the mail sync back on. Your mail will be re-synchronized with the Exchange server and the troublesome messages will disappear.
MS applications like Outlook sometimes show garbled video when scrolling through emails, etc. Internet Explorer may garble the video when working in Citrix.
