    @WrCombs someone modified that page today, too. And they are using a litespeed server? Weird. Not bad, just rare.

    You'll also want to check any caches. Once fixed, the caches might hold on for a while.

    I hadn't heard of Litespeed.

    i find that hard to believe

    I don't manage websites - what's hard to believe.

    Just very standard IT stuff. Like knowing IIS. You know IIS, presumably. They are about equally as popular.

    I'll have to take your word for it - Assuming I have heard about - it was so infrequent and uninspiring that it didn't stick.



  • There is a group of about 5 "older" ladies wanting to share a few files and documents. One of them has OneDrive but doesn't know how to use it. One has a Gmail account but doesn't know how to use Google Drive, etc. The others have email through their ISP with no "features". I'm thinking a $5 Vultr NC instance would be simple enough for them and probably be plenty of storage. Am I overthinking this? I don't think there is a simple way to share between multiple users with OneDrive, etc. personal accounts. Seems like there would be an easier way. They need simplicity.

    What's the difference between NC and OD or GDrive? basically they are all the same.

    Why not pick one of the free options and just use that?

    Your solution means they have to spend money monthly AND they need support to manage/update/maintain it.

    He'd still have to get everyone on the same platform.



  • @Dashrender That is my point. How do multiple users share folders in OneDrive for example? I realize you can send files or a folder to someone on the free tier but they would still have to create [email protected] account to retrieve the file if they were not already a MS user. Same goes with Google users.



  • @DustinB3403 Exactly.



  • @brandon220 your issue is two fold, these 5 people all need to get on something uniform. Sharing from there would all be based on their credentials from said platform.

    exactly - so why bring in something that costs money and adds just one more thing to everyone? At least sticking to OD or GDrive - the user who has that won't have an extra thing - it's a minor point, but probably not of zero value.

    I don't disagree, I was just pointing out the real issue.

    Of course - just like you have to create users in NC - so there's no saving going with NC there.

    then, once you have everyone log into their own accounts - that's assuming you even need separate accounts for everyone (can you use just one shared account for all?) - once they are all logged into OD/GD have one person create a folder, share it with read/write privileges for all the people in question - done.



  • @Dashrender I agree with you 100%. Just thinking what would be the most simple for less than average users.



  • MS allows you to use your own email address, whatever it is, as a Microsoft Account - so do that. Then have them log into OD using those new creds, and create a single folder as mentioned above - share it out.. done.



  • @brandon220 said in What Are You Doing Right Now:

    @Dashrender I agree with you 100%. Just thinking what would be the most simple for less than average users.

    Do you think NC is easier than OD or GD?

    Frankly, I've never used the sync client for NC before, so I don't honestly know.



  • @Dashrender said in What Are You Doing Right Now:

    Frankly, I've never used the sync client for NC before, so I don't honestly know.

    If you are signing in automatically, it's as easy as easy gets. It's just a folder that syncs. You don't need to know that it is NC at all.

    The same can be said for OD, and I'm guessing for GD too.

    You know with things like this, it's been my experience that you can spend lots of time working out what to do and when you get around to showing the people involved how to use your solution, the consensus is that it's just too complicated.

    I usually leave things like this for a week or 2 or 3 and if I get asked again, then I can gauge just how important the requirement is to them. If they don't ask again, then it wasn't important, it was just an interesting idea.



  • More user archiving and equipment preparation, drinking some coffee as well as checking on the deployment status of some new software.



  • Updating Cisco AMP connector on Citrix PVS images.



  • Tried my first cup of Death Wish coffee this morning. It's actually pretty good... If anybody hears a thunking sound in their attic, I am probably trying to float away somewhere... or I died and am now going to haunt you forever... <insert evil cackle here>.

    Salt it with some 5 Hour Energy and I think you can read minds.

    Ha ha ha... I've seen enough movies with mind readers to know that's not a power that I'd like.... Now give me the ability to move faster than a speeding bullet, that I might could handle.

    yeah, I suppose - but really, syncing to a folder inside my documents should make it pretty straightforward for the user.
