Without being familiar with the model, I would first say that the boards I have used don’t like DHCP and need a static IP as well as having the router IP input into a field. Also, I’ve not seen a mixer with built in wifi, so they always need to be wired to the router or directly connected to a PC for recording/DAW functionality. If none of that applies here, I have to think about a faulty NIC in the sound board.

RE: What Are You Doing Right Now
Spent all morning with a tech trying to recreate our door access system from scratch. The machine that it lived on before had a drive failure, no recoverable data (including all the backups and database, which only lived on that machine). Finally got it all running right, but everyone that walked out of the office had to go to the front door to get in since their access cards didn't work anymore. I'll be firing off a backup of this system later this afternoon so we don't have to go through this again.
Didn't that system give you trouble a while back, too? I seem to recall hearing about it.

How do people who run windows desktops not know about downgrade rights?
How do so many people get into IT and not know how to spell corporate... I don't think you have to buy a cooperate Windows 7... you can just torrent that.
Well, that I can excuse as a typo or a non-native English speaker. Spelling is a lot more acceptable than attempting to buy Windows 7 licenses new.
I try to not be a stickler for things like grammatical errors unless it's just a totally screwed up phrase. I know people who can write and speak English as a second langugae far better than some of us native speakers, lol.
Spelling or weird wordings especially, who cares. I'll take someone struggling with English that gets phrases or spelling wrong anyday over a native speaker who tries to bluff by using words like cloud without knowing what they mean.
But cooperate isn't a misspelling of corporate; it's another word. If I was talking about couch computing and meant cloud, you would lose your mind.
RE: Deodorizing a Smelly PC
Put it in a big bucket of coffee beans?
For some sad reason, our server room doesn't have any coffee beans. We really missed out on a very useful tool.
I'll try the alcohol approach and see how it goes.
You do have stores nearby, right? They sell coffee beans. And buckets.
Right? I'm not sure what made this difficult to process.
RE: Cyber Insurance
@scottalanmiller I agree. Looking at it like auto insurance where cars can be replaced for a price and medical bills can be paid just doesn't have parallels in IT.
Not at all. It's kind of like getting insurance against doing business badly.
And, at the end of the day, it's just monetary compensation for lost data, which I doubt can really be accurately assessed. If your data is gone, all the insurance in the world won't bring it back, and its value isn't well-replaced by dollars.
