Here is a picture of the whiteboard wall in my office. I really REALLY like it.
I used Rust-Oleum Dry Erase Brush on Paint. I believe I did about 3 or 4 coats of this stuff. It goes on very thin, and reading reviews everyone suggested to do multiple coats. I picked this stuff up at Home Depot.
I first inquired in about whiteboard paint at Sherwin Williams but believe the cost was way more than the Rust-Oleum. I figured I would give this stuff a try first. I am very happy with how it works.
I did put Rust-Oleums magnetic paint on first to make the wall also magnetic. I would highly suggest not doing that. It doesn’t hold very well and makes for a rough surface for the whiteboard.
If you have the option, put this paint on a smooth wall, but it should still work on a textured wall as my wall is partially textured from the magnetic paint.
Anyone else have one, do you like it?
I am a big fan of Jason Fried. I’ve read all of his books. Here’s a good interview with him on CMD+Space on his latest book Rework and more…
This week Myke is joined by Jason Fried. They discuss the beginnings of 37Signals and how it developed in to a long-running, very successful company, before going on to talk about how it moved Jason towards co-writing some best-selling books.

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 last week. Ever since I’ve had major issues with it. Here’s a list of what has gone wrong:
For the Dual Monitors I got going somehow by simply restarting since in the device manager for my graphics card that is what it said I needed to do.
I then tried working with MS Support over twitter but didn’t get very far. They asked me to take it offline and call support or connect with Answer Desk.
I worked with someone on Answer Desk for about an hour, in the end what he did was “reinstall” IE11. That was my main concern at the time and I couldn’t reproduce Windows crashing at the time.
It seemed to have worked for a couple of days but then the issue came back again.
Today I connected with Answer Desk again. The support specialist remoted into my machine and took a look at my event log. It was filled with Internet Explorer and Explorer.exe errors. He claimed it was the graphics card causing everything. He uninstalled and reinstalled the graphics card. In IE he also enabled in the internet options:
Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering*
Disabled, Enable Enhanced Protected Mode*
IE11 appears to be working again without crashing and I am now able to open Metro Apps. I am hoping that is all it was.
Emotional baby! Too cute!
Rise & Shine!
If you keep driving like that, you’re going to kill a cyclist. When you do, it’s going to suck as much for you as it does for them. When you drive by my head at 50 mph I can’t have this conversation with you, so I’m going to do you a favor and talk you through all of your arguments as to why…
