Great article Ryan. Thanks for sharing!

Listen Up!

IPv6 is here to stay. Removing it can break networking. Do not remove it.

SMBv1is a security hole and has been removed from Windows 7 & above, Server 2008 & up.
SMBv1 has been removed meaning you cannot connect to old operating system, old NAS devices and old printer/scanners.
SMBv1 is a security hole. Do not enable it.

Window 10 is going to update. Get used to it. The people who turned Windows 7 updates off and then blamed Microsoft when their operating got hacked and hosed caused this.

Home group has gone (Windows 10 V1803 and up). Get used to Password Protected sharing and learn how to use it. I wrote an article about this  (look in my Articles for Folder Sharing on modern computers). Do not turn passwords off.

Windows 10 is not Windows 7, does not work like Windows 7 and has dispensed with some old Windows 7 ideas. There is no going back. Get used to it.

You got ransomware from people opening email from strangers. Get a Spam Filter. Train Employees, keep Off-Site backups. It is not a technology problem - it is a management problem.

Amortize expensive software and hardware to create cash for new equipment. "I am stuck on XP because the equipment is too expensive to upgrade" is not an option. Get your accountant to explain this to you.

I do not lose clients either.
You're obviously an effective and highly experienced admnistrator and consultant, so that doesn't really surprise me.

Did you notice this request in my last comment though?

If you could give me an example website or two to go to, that will cause issues while I have IPv6 disabled, I'd be very grateful because I'd like to see first hand the issues that you say disabling it causes?

I saw your comment, but I read through the Reddit article and that influences my thinking. No issues of any kind anywhere keeping IPv6 enabled and no reason at any client anywhere needing to disable it.

It’s about network- we are using SdWan Velo Cloud switch for all our satellite offices . We are connected through MPLS technologies. Wr have one centralized SW firewall control all traffics in cordination with Velo Cloud switch. Dhcp, vpn everything enabled on the Velo Cloud switch . My perception is that, one Hq s firewall is well sufficient to protect our all offices or suggest me if we need firewall for our all offices?

Have you been having problems with Windows 10 Pro suddenly not being activated?  Well, there's a reason for that...

I like the idea of templating my #HTML. I really hate using #Javascript to piece it together in realtime. I do use that in 2 situations:

1. I'm on the bus, on my tablet or phone, and building a prototype where I don't have access to real tools like an IDE or a bunch of servers;
 
2. When I feel so arrogant I don't have to care about accessibility or security- and privacy-aware users who have javascript turned off.
 
But otherwise, I much prefer having the templating handled at the server.

#TIL: #java #enum can #implement an #interface.
 
And interfaces can have default methods. And that means that enums with a similar use can avoid copy-pasting code, by implementing the appropriate interface.
 
Oh boy.
 
I love enums. They're a great tool for ensuring something exists exactly once, but maybe it has a few brothers and sisters.
 
What I hate about enums is that Java refuses to let us subclass them, and refuses to let us inherit from a class of our own choice, because it already inherits from a class by design, and Java refuses to allow multiple inheritance.
 
The pain is great and has led to duplicate code in my past.
 
Until today. Because today I learned from people on StackOverflow that enums can implement interfaces.
 
I should have realized that years ago. But I'm happy to know it now, and I hope some of you will be helped by this, as well.
 
Happy coding!

Solid State Disks (SSDs) often implement hardware full-disk encryption in a way known as Self-Encrypting Drives
(SEDs). Several implementations of SEDs have been analysed by reverse engineering their firmware. Many have security vulnerabilities that allow for full recovery of the data without knowledge of any secret when you have physical access to the drive.
BitLocker, bundled with Microsoft Windows, relies exclusively on hardware full-disk encryption if the drive indicates support for it. Thus, for these drives, data protected by BitLocker is also compromised.

Hi McKnife,

Sweet, isn't it? Now go check your drives... all of them.
manage-bde -status c: | findstr /i hardware && msg * You are possibly affected!

I assume that's a powershell command? Can you explain what it does and can I run it on my two SSD's without any fear of it doing something un-toward? I tend to shy away from powershell commands unless I'm assured that they won't harm anything. What does that one do exactly?

#TodayILearned: #Java's type system and #unittesting can't catch all logic errors.
 
Well, I didn't learn that today, exactly, but I was reminded of it today, again, while hunting down an elusive bug in one of my applications.
 
A target method accepts #CharSequence instances, and I supplied the wrong one. I supplied a container. I should have supplied its children. Neither the type system nor unit tests caught that mistake.
 
Why? Because the container implements CharSequence, too.
 
Yay.

I have windows10 and log on with user name and password. I then have to log onto a Citrix Cxa server using the icon and input same user name and password.

If I log onto the pc with a different user name to what’s on Citrix cxa it don’t log onto the server properly.

Also if I log off on windows and then input my details the following day it’s lost all the settings.

Should I be logging onto windows 10 and then Citrix server but when I log off I obviously log off the server but should I be using switch user instead of log off on windows 10?

Recently I ranted about Windows 10 and the disappearing scroll bar on the start menu (was driving me nuts).   So digging around, low and behold, there is a setting for that under Settings, Ease of Access, Display:

If this has been driving you crazy as well, welcome to some relief!

Simply set the Textbox  ControlSource to  alias.column  of the cursor.

Just remember the textbox can display just one value from the current row.
