How to set Etrade default Home Page

 This took me a few weeks, until I realized what had happened. When logging into my Etrade account, it used to default to the Accounts page by default. While logged in, if you click the top left corner Etrade logo, it would take you to the default home page. 

Needless to say a while back, it started defaulting to Options Trading and not Accounts. I checked every menu and every personal settings and account settings, but nothing to set the HOME page.

Low-and-behold, it turns out to be during the LOGIN Page.   There is a drop-down option you can select the default HOME page. See below.

Good Luck and happy trading.

How to display alt tag on image as text using jQuery

Have you ever had an image that you wanted to let a user click and display text? For example; Show hidden price? Hidden image/text game? Although most browsers support hover over the img element to display the "title", this does not work in most mobile browsers. Android allows tap and hold on the image to display the title, but iPhone does not. I've got an alternative solution. See below:

      alt="my alt" 
      title="my title">
    <div id="show-text"></div>
      $("img").on("click", function() {
        if( !$.trim( $('#show-text').html() ).length ) {
        } else {

Panning a bag of Eureka Gold Sands 1/2 lb Ultra Rich

I did a start-to-finish video while panning a bag of Eureka Gold Sands 1/2 pound Ultra-Rich Mix.  That is some great pay dirt from Gino (The Nugget King). Nice compact bag of dirt, ultra chunky gold, and who knows, sometimes a good honking bonus nugget!

Now Open! Bragg Family Gold Prospecting Store

Yeeeeehaw!   I've decided to open a Gold Prospecting store. Check it out on the Right.

If you ever wanted to find gold like the 'ol timers, jump on in and get yourself a pan, and maybe some real gold paydirt. All you need to do is get a washtub, fill it with water and try your hand at panning for GOLD!

This is one of the best hobbies I've ever had, because you get to spend time out in nature and you have a bonus of finding the shiny yellow stuff ... GOLD!

Flexeraaxz$aaa: Windows DLL failed to load when running InstallShield installer

When running installer that uses Installshield 2014 and you experience the following error:

Flexeraaxz$aaa: Windows DLL failed to load
at Source)
at Flexeraaxz.aa(Unknown Source)

It's not compatible with Java 8. Uninstall all versions of Java, and re-install a 32-bit version of Java 7. Also make sure to remove any references to JAVA_HOME, and reference to Java in your PATH environment variable.

PRUNSRV command fails running Java Service

If your getting the following error:

Windows could not start the sample on Local Computer. For more information review the System event log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor and refer to the server specific
error code 1

One thing you have to be sure is the version of prunsrv.exe is for the same platform of Java/JVM your using.

ie. If your path to jvm.dll is 32-bit Java, you have to use 32-bit prunsrv.exe
     If your path to jvm.dll is 64-bit Java, you have to use the 64-bit prunsrv.exe

If your running on Windows and the PATH to Java contains a space, be sure use double quotes around the full Jvm path. Also, many current versions of Java do not locate the jvm.dll in the bin\client directory anymore, it may be located in the bin\server directory instead.

Good Luck,
