LightScribe Template Labeler for Windows 10

LightScribe Template Labeler installation "Operating System Inadequate" Issue

Unfortunately 'LightScribe Template Labeler' installation will not work on Windows 8 and Windows 10 machines as the install simply will error out with 'Operating System Inadequate'. Trying to install using compatibility mode did not help.

Installing LightScribe Template Labeler Workaround

However if you simply copy the installed folder from an older machine like Windows 7 into your `C:\\Program Files (x86)\LightScribe Template Labeler`, create a shortcut, then the software will still happily work, see:

For my own convenience to avoid this process in the future I am keeping a zipped version of the folder that you can download it here: LightScribe Template Labeler for Windows 10 (please comment if the link is dead).

How to child proof a fireplace

DIY - Do it yourself fireplace child guard Our wonderful 8.5 month old Sofia has become a crawling race car with an untamed thirst for exploration. And so with the cold nights approaching we needed to child proof the fireplace. This however proved to be more difficult than would reasonably expect, I've checked the local Toys "R" Us, Walmart, and even a Canadian Tire with no success for a ready to use product. Internet search was more fruitful and returned a few online stores one could order from, however in all honestly they didn't look too sturdy to me.
