Ok, cool, now that you've read it, I'm sure it's something many of you have encountered—user says that they restarted something, but clearly they didn't. Made me think that in the current era where smartphones with cameras are so ubiquitous, a way to verify that the device in question actually had power would be to have the client take a photo of it and send that to you. Then you could know if A.) they were looking at the right device and B.) the power lights were really on.

Think it'd work? You ever try anything like that? Oh, and if you've got a similar SysAdmin tale, be sure to go comment on that same post!

Cyber News Rundown: Edition 7/21/17

Malware Lurking in Game of Thrones Torrents

Viewers hoping to catch an illegal copy of the season 7 premier of Game of Thrones, released last Sunday evening, stumbled across something much more dangerous than White Walkers. The most pirated TV show in the last 5 years, Game of Thrones torrents often come with an extra side of malware, and have even released a Cerber ransomware variant onto unsuspecting viewers. While some lucky pirates have escaped with clean torrents, others haven’t been so fortunate. Use caution in all your internet activities, whatever they may be.

Twitter Porn Bot Shutdown

In the last few weeks, researchers have been attempting to bring down a Twitter botnet that took over 86,000 bot accounts to send out a relentless stream of porn ads to Twitter users across the globe. The botnet itself began by creating systematically generated Twitter accounts to send out a malicious URL payload to victims, which would then redirect them to a variety of porn sites controlled by the same network.

Have you read about a released feature you liked at Experts Exchange, or a bug that was fixed only to find it didn't work for you?  That's happened to me and I've just stumbled on the reason why!

You need to log out of Experts Exchange and then log back in for the new features to show up, or bug fixes to take effect on your EE account.  See below.

Log out of EE

Once you do that, all new features and bug fixes come into effect.

Hope that's helpful

I think in this particular case you may have worked around something by logging out and back in. That doesn't mean that we intentionally fixed it. "You need to log out of Experts Exchange and then log back in for the new features to show up," this is definitely not the case for new features nor should it be required for bug fixes.

Once we have all the details on how to reproduce that problem, we will have a chance to intentionally fix it. :) However right now I think it may return after you happen across the steps again.

You're most likely correct Craig.. I got a little excited when something wouldn't work and then did so probably jumped the gun a bit :)

Agreed.. Nailing those steps down can be a frustrating exercise though. It's like fighting with a poltergeist that only rears its head once in a while just to irritate you! lol..

Good luck with the migration, David! And is just me, or are Kyle's plans oddly similar to a migration—a lot of being on hand and watching to make sure things don't go horribly wrong, and then swooping in to save they day if they do? :-D

Haha!  You're right Brian it does sound a bit like a migration.

All went well, apart from the Internet at the clients site has a fault on it.  Internet speed is 1.8Mbps Down and 0.05Mbps Up at the moment!  Still managed to connect them up to Outlook but I've not been able to import the mail as it would take a week per mailbox haha.

Typing on mobile: some thoughts

I was thinking the other day about smartphones and how I often don't like to type on them. I'm just so used to typing on full-size keyboards, that typing on mobile is like swimming in molasses. And it's really a shame, because in so many other ways, my iPhone is incredibly convenient.

But then, I thought about how speech to text these days is pretty decent, and perhaps the best approach would be to just use Siri for dictation instead of trying to type. I've held off on such things, because I'm old enough (and had enough bad experiences with flaky computer dictation long ago) that psychologically, it feels really weird to talk to a computer.

But in this case, my computer is a phone.

And that means: I feel weird talking to a phone.

Which is kind of weird, don't you think?

What about you? Do you type on your smartphone a lot? Or do you use Siri/Cortana/Google for dictation? Does talking to your phone feel weird or is it totally normal for you?

Stacy: I'm curious... Why do you hate talk to text?
Not speaking for Stacy, but I too get frustrated with 'Siri' sometimes, especially so if I'm driving and try to initiate a hands free call to some of my contacts. I tend to drive with my windows fully down almost all year round so I guess the ambient noise probably doesn't help, but it can be incredibly frustrating when two out of three calls tend to work perfectly!

A typical example goes something like this..
1. Hey Siri, call Tom Smith, office..  "Calling, Tom Smith.. office"   Tick! - Successful call
2. Hey Siri, call Bob Jones, mobile.. "Calling Bob Jones.. mobile"  Tick! - Successful call
3. Hey Siri, call Jennifer Clayton, office..  "Calling John Mechanic, office.."  Huh?!?!

Might take two or three attempts before she finally gets it right and I've had to explain myself a few times when not paying much attention to Siri's answers (which most times I'm not) and the call goes through to someone I had no intention of calling.

One amusing time she wrongly called my dental surgery and I ended up making an appointment for a routine checkup during the call. Turned out I needed a filling so that call ended up costing me about $150.00!! lol..

I'm sure others must have also experienced this phenomenon as well? :)

Not sure if this really counts, because I wasn't the SysAdmin in this scenario; instead, I was the problematic user! But here goes: back when I was a student at CalPoly, we had access to the school's UNIX system for things like our email. I had taken the C and UNIX class, so I knew my way around the command line enough to do more than just use PINE to check my email. I also really liked the SETI @ Home project, so I got the UNIX version of the client and installed it on my account on the school's system and would just let it run.

I think maybe I had it going for a month and I have no idea what sort of resources it was taking up. I imagine it wasn't really all that bad, but eventually, a SysAdmin did shut it down and told me not to do that again...

I imagine college SysAdmins have to deal with a lot of shenanigans like that! :-D

Just when you thought Google Glass was dead and buried (thanks to public stigma), yesterday they announced an enterprise version:
http://www.x.company/glass/

Here's a blog post from the Glass project lead (Jay Kothari) that explains some of the things they're doing in the enterprise.

instruction manual compared to glass Using these for helping factory workers in assembly, inventory management, etc., on first glance looks like a no-brainer.  Giving a surgeon the ability to monitor vital signs of a patient while elbow deep in a heart transplant, amazing. Seems like enterprise is where the Glass project should have started in the first place.

Looking at professional certifications? I've discovered that community colleges near me offer Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA certification exams free of charge! You might find an academic testing center near you that does the same or offers a great discount. Considering these exams usually cost $150-200 when administered by private testing centers? Woot!

The other day Rourke told me about a game called Screeps where you code your AI units in Javascript. I'm surprised I haven't heard about these types of games before! The reviews say there's a barrier to entry for novice programmers but hopefully that won't scare too many off.

The acquiring company inserts adware into thousands of people's browsers and they begin earning revenue from ad-clicks and affiliate sales. Eventually people notice and uninstall the extension.

It's a pump and dump scheme. Short term they multiply profits. Long term the extension goes in the trash.

Once a customer called me and told our software tells him 'Hardlock not found' - after 10 minutes verifying everything (driver, service, client) was installed fine and running, just for fun and coz I was a little bit frustrated, I aksed if he really plugged in the hardlock - the customer was a bit surprised and answered "No, it's here, laying in front of me, on my desktop - do I have to plug it somewhere?"

Another time I sent a PDF docu to a customer - he answered with a mail asking me what to do with this PDF. I wrote 'just open it to read or print it' - he answered he doesn't know what 'open' means and asked me if it would be possible that I open the PDF and send it to him 'opened'.

And one of my favorites, allthough it wasn't directly me: Once surprisingly I heard my colleague (usually a relaxed guy) yelling loud into the telephone "NO! STOP! Stop EVERYTHING! DON'T TOUCH the mouse! DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING! When I tell you 'click', click EXACTLY ONCE with the LEFT mouse button! WHEN I TELL YOU 'double click', click EXACTLY TWICE with the LEFT mouse button! As long as I don't tell you anything DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!!!"
