How to fix the Asus Zenbook trackpad

I have an Asus Zenbook for work, and its awesome. Small. light and fast!

Since day 1, the trackpad has been a huge issue. It didn’t perform like some previous laptops I had, nor like my Macbook. For instance when you single tap on the left or right buttons on the track pad, they register as single clicks. This messes things up from time to time. There are some other issue as well, my palm getting in the way and causing issues.

Anyways, I found somewhat of a solution to some of the issues. A personal blog provides some registry changes you can make to reveal more settings from the Elan trackpad program.

The only problem is that when you save your settings after enabling the registry keys and re-open the Elan application, the extra options are removed. So I’ve provided a registry file that you simply run each time.

Using the TouchPad blocker has made quite a difference, I suggest using this application.

Error’d: Crashing Las Vegas

This is awesome. I recently took a trick to Las Vegas, and wondered about all of the the neat hardware that runs the screens and lights.
Error'd: Crashing Las Vegas -

Surely, you’ve seen the commercials and are familiar with Las Vegas’ First-Commandment / Clever-Marketing-Tagline: What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas. I suppose we can bend that rule today and share a couple pictures that Christopher Kimbell snapped while he was walking down the strip…

… and later that day …

As for the rest of the pictures that Chris found on his camera after his vacation? I think we'll just leave those in Vegas…
