Seriously, what does the OS have to do with the choice of O365?
Obviously if you cannot run the desktop apps, then there is no reason to pay for a subscription that includes them, but that has nothing to do with the rest of the features of O365 or any other solution such as GStuite.
You buy the solution that fits your needs. O365 has many packages that give you features without the desktop applications.
I feel a disturbance in the force @JaredBusch posted on this thread without using that phrase.
I think I'd rather not install an entire desktop to manage VMs. That seems like taking a step in the wrong direction to me.
You don't have to. You can manage from cli only. And if you just want virt-manager just have a VM on the host that you can X11 forward from.
If you have failover/replica/ha you can consider to use a vm to control the hypervisor
You can do it even without that. Single hosts are easy, and for the amount of resources it uses, you can just have one on each host as a fail safe. But as long as a single host is up you can control them all from a single Virt-Manager VM.
I'd really ask yourself if there is actually evidence that he is smart, or is it not more likely that he's just good at playing the political game and has a position of authority for possibly less than ethical reasons? None of us know him, we only know him through your descriptions. But basically every thing said about him sounds like "holy cow, this guy is clueless and I'd not keep him as an intern" then suddenly "he's a smart guy" kind of sticks out as not matching the description we've been getting thus far. A well meaning blundering buffoon, sure. That's how he sounded until then. Now it sounds like maybe he's setting up a heist or a network hostage situation.
You NEVER have to look at ads. You choose to look at ads if you actually see ads while browsing.
You don't see ads on Facebook? You are a magician.
I don't really see much at all on FB, but I certainly don't see ads. uBlock Origin + the right filters = no ads anywhere, ever. I love watching Pandora try to play an ad and fail, then play another song.
For user profile migrations, I generally use Transwiz. It will package the user's profile (domain or local) on the old system and when you run it on the new one, it creates the registry entries and copies all the content to the users folder. I have been using it for years and rarely have any weird issues.
I think that the purpose of the Issabel is to continue creating the Add On Modules that was supported by Elastix , also it is based on CentOS 7 which will be more reliable than what Elastix 2.5 was.
anyway i think we need to wait till we find Issabel is stable distro and we can depend on it as we did with Elastix.
All joking aside, I'm in need of transport, or even to Newark NJ's airport.
I may end up making the drive there myself. . . but if there is anyone who's planning to make either trip let me know.
where are you headed in Florida?
I'm not headed, I need a dog taken down the Pensacola
That's south georgia haha
I've actually never been to the panhandle, but it is more like the rest of the south not really florida.
Florida is somehow worse.
We have 3 very distinct regions. The climate goes from temperate, to sub-tropical to tropical Aks south Georgia, central Florida, and South Florida.
Most news stories come out of Central and South Florida. Oddly enough those are also the much nicer areas. It's pretty common to go from mansions to the ghetto in less than a mile. The last neighborhood I lived in before where I'm at now, our neighborhood was across the street from pretty bad housing. The housing complex had barbed wire like you'd see in a prison, but there were were across the street where houses were up to $500k.
Since there is so much water in most of Florida, bad areas are bound to be near water. Waterfront will of course always be expensive. So you have rich areas right next to really bad areas. In south Florida you can draw a line on a map and know what areas are good and what are bad. The just follow a certain distance to the coast.
The ability to generate project or task lists from a ticket and tie it to the ticket.
Is a self hosted/on premise version of Sodium going to be an option? We are a government contractor and we handle sensitive information, so something with a similar model to SW is not an option for us. You don't have to cater to us if the market does not support it, just asking.
I'd fully support a fully on-prem model. Just need updates for hardware signature, etc.
@scottalanmiller lol, this is probably true, I do remember an article about some os code that was leaked a long time ago and they were quite embarrassed with even some of the comments that was left in the code as well.
Ha ha. Yeah stuff like this dating from the Windows 3 era is bound to be atrocious.
Cloudflare will read the current DNS server and build all the records in itself.
That only works for some records.
Most of ones like www, ftp and mx records. But anything that you make that is unusual or unique in any way, I've never had found. I just did it the other day for a company and it found like two of twenty, and it was the two you'd be almost certain would be there.
Not on purpose or anything, but I skipped right over the A+ and studied for and passed the NT 4.0 MCSE as my first certifications.
It's not really skipping it any more than you likely skipped your automotive certification. It's not in the path between "interest" and the MCSE. And the Network+ didn't exist back then, so the MCP was the starter cert in that arena.
Well the job I had at the time was hmmm... install/fix end user PCs, run cabling, move (but not program) phones. We did eventually take over image deployment with a Partition Magic for Win 3.1 and 9x machines.
So, is that bench or IT?
This was my assumption.
I definitely didn't to be in that department for long. At the company, the pay topped out at like $28K for a bench tech.
Move to the LAN department (as it was called - the department that was responsible for the network switches/firewalls/servers) ranged from $40K - $130K. remember this is in NE, 15 years ago, and cost of living is still low compared to a lot of places, but apparently it's moderate compared to where Scott likes to live.
I had sling.tv subscription over a year ago and it was horrible experience. Initially everything worked just fine, but about 2 weeks into, outages started happening every evening. AMC or Epix was impossible to watch. Picture quality also wasn't the best, someone reverse-engineered their streams to find it wasn't even 720p. We switched to PS Vue after 3 months, it currently is $55/mo for one of the higher packages (I think they have 4 available). There's no comparison in quality and reliability, Sony wins here.
Dialing into FreeBPX then dialing out doesn't sound like the end of the world though it's not quite as convenient as we have now. Can one configure "trusted" numbers to accept calls from that automatically allow dialing out again or does one have to authenticate via code first?
Aside from that, what all would I need to procure for 1 number, 4 extensions aside from SIP phones?
Is there a more simplistic setup wizard available that I can further customize later or will this all be text based configuration by me?
I'm not sure if your goal is to track warranties of things installed, or track expenses and the financial side of it. (or both) Have you talked to your accountant? My accountant told me what they wanted to see, and it amounts to about 4 spread sheets. All of my other documentation goes in to some google doc folders.
4 spread sheets? is that 4 different single things? or 4 sheets of things, and what makes the break from one sheet to the next?
This is kinda of amazing actually. Could you imagine someone like MS starting Windows over every 7 years so they can be using the latest and greatest coding techniques? I'm guessing they would loose a lot of backward compatibility, but maybe not.
Don't they? NT 3 to NT 4 was only about three years. NT 4 to NT 5 was four years. NT 5 to NT 6 was seven years. Do they completely rewrite? We don't actually know. But they heavily rewrite. It's a major overhaul.
If they lost backward compatibility, that would only be from products relying on broken parts of the old system, not the rewrite. Properly written software running on top would not be affected.
Does Linux get rewritten like this? No. But huge portions of it are continuously refactored in this way or just left untouched.
You get an email, it says "hey some guy you know is sharing a google doc or whatever, you need to sign in"
Then you pick on the website whethere you use Office 365, Google Apps, etc
Next thing you know the doc says cannot be found, so you forget about it. Meanwhile all your information has been compromised and it starts sending out emails to your contacts list.
With 2FA there is no way to use your login information because the attacker cant get that second stage of info when logging in. From what I have seen those phishing attempts dont even attempt to collect it.
Of course, thats hardly the only type of socially engineered attack.
Good attacks definitely do get and pass that info through.
@bigbear You are right. The number of qualitive content goes down. But principles of evolution work everywhere. In a long distance fast and non qualitive content will be beated by users who can keep a long distance with a great quality.
@penguinwrangler Thanks for experience. What about bad and unqualitive content? There are still a lot of such videos and kids, even teens can watch something horrible for the psyche. Do you use any filters to avoid it?
I'm sure they're amazing, just wish I had a need for one!
Actually Mainframes run insane amounts of traditional Java. Because Java is what replaced COBOL in financial applications and because mainframes are focused primarily on financial workloads, it's a very big deal there.
Ah. That'd explain it then. I'll grant that I'd rather deal with JAVA than COBOL!
The reason for looking at GFI is (we are decentralizing from the parent company, moving out of exchange to O365 and they have GFI email archiver. From that entire GFI archiver, we need to extract just our domain emails and then keep that, plus look at a longer retention emails on O365 moving forward as well.
The strange part is that mine has been fine all day. Previously I was seeing either a duplicate C: or "Not available" "NaN".
Today? just E: and C:
Awesome! That is actually not so strange as I did clear up some storage issues. Scott's issue is likely completely unrelated to yours. Yours was cleared up as I reconstructed how we were storing our data. As soon as I did that your issue was resolved (it was the driving force behind the change but it is a huge upgrade to our backend so it was needed). As for Scott's issue, this is an issue with what is being sent to us from the agent. The last line is actually the return code which I just need to filter out, that's nothing. However the D drive not showing it's information is intriguing. The agent obviously couldn't get a read on the drive. I'll be looking into this one later today.
Yeah I liked this too. I totally believe all that too. I even experienced this recently too from talking to a Windows admin and yet the average Linux person who may not even be an admin just knows vastly more it seems. Anyway, good video and thanks!
You talk so much on technical and career, but how about talking to management? How to win management over on projects or issues, etc. What to consider, how it will contribute to the company, ROI, initial investment costs, etc.
Good video. Possibly another video idea, if you want to get into it, is a break down on how you make the decision on what operating system or software to use and how to run the numbers. I hear that a lot and I personally would not know how to do this reliably. Maybe others would not either .
Typically you would use a spectrum analyzer to look at the frequency range in question. Problem is most of them are expensive. We use a product from Ekahau when doing site surveys to determine wifi in use and interference from things like microwave ovens: https://www.ekahau.com/products/spectrum-analyzer/overview/
I believe we paid over $6000 for it though.
There was a cheap one out there that worked well I'll see if I can find it.
Other option is a software defined radio that can tune the 2.4GHz band, coupled with a radio program like SDR# (pronounced SDRSharp) that can scan the band in question. You look on the scan as its happening for peaks in the frequency range; those are either your wifi AP's or other devices causing interference. @gjacobse may have some info on one; the one I have doesn't go up that high in frequency.
Running the latest Deepin Linux 15.4.1 for testing, Sodium installs fine with the apt-get installer and data collection works, but the applications get collected with a number rather than the name of the application. Screen shot here:
