May 24th, 2011 – SPB Software, a leading mobile software developer announces the release of an advanced skinnable alarm clock for Android smartphones – SPB Time. This #1 bestselling alarm and clock application for Windows Mobile now comes to Android users. It has lots of useful time-related functions and an eye-catching user interface.
With SPB Time Android users will have a variety of useful features along with the astonishing design.
What makes SPB Time stand out is its alarm feature with the ability to wake up every single sleeper in a best possible way. Along with classic alarm that has over 20 tunes, it includes the Bio and Paranoid alarms. Those who prefer the gentle and natural way of waking up can choose the friendly Bio alarm to start the day with slight ticks, lights and calm sound of birds or water before the actual alarm time. It helps to wake up without any stress on the correct stage of sleep.
There’s also another type of sleepers, they need a cold water tub to be poured on the face or the brass band playing into the ears to wake them up. Loud Paranoid alarm is for them: it suggests solving the puzzle and won’t stop until it’s done correctly. Those who still lack some extra minutes to sleep can snooze the alarm by shaking the phone.
The users can enjoy the design of the application with its amazing effects: realistic looking 3D model of the Earth in the “World Time” feature or the countdown screen with the sandglass resembling the outgoing time with the pouring sand make the use of the application really enjoyable. Those who are keen on travelling will appreciate the “World Time” that allows to select many cities around the world to simultaneously monitor time zones. The customization opportunities complement the interface with the vast choice of time skins that can be downloaded from SPB Time skins gallery for free.

Recently I found myself stumped whilst trying to installing some firewall monitoring software onto my Windows 7 machine at work. Each time I ran either the setup.exe or setup.msi it would tell me there was another installation stuck pending a reboot. No matter how many times I rebooted I still got the same message. After several hours of digging around I finally managed to figure out there was a rogue registry key that needed a bit of a kick before Windows would finally believe there was no work to be done.
To get the setup to run
Click on Start > Run type Regedit and click ok
Find the key “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager”
Rename the “PendingFileRenameOperations” value to “PendingFileRenameOperations2″
Once done, run the setup again and you should be able to install the software as expected. Obviously there is on caveat with this solution. In that some of the operations pending may actually need to be run, so it’s best to do this is a last option scenario. Also – playing in the registry can be dangerous, so it’s worth backing up before performing any operations in the registry.
