Can anyone suggest a site to evaluate, research, and even appraise  a piece of art?  I got a nice interesting vase from the friend recently diseased.  Would like to find more information about it.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks.

Python 3 Fundamentals
LVL 12
Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

We have a few end users that work remotely as traveling salesman. They are given laptops that are merely standalone, and are not joined to the domain.  They have installed Outlook 2016 without consulting with anyone in IT. Previous versions of Outlook allowed you to manually configure Outlook Anywhere, which, in turn, would allow them to connect to our Exchange 2010 SP3 server. As all of you know, the ability for this manual configuration was removed in Outlook 2016, and you must use Auto discover to receive to necessary configurations. However, we don't have an external Auto discover point configured. Nor is it likely to happen in the near future. My question is: Is there a feasible workaround? (other than POP3 or IMAP)

PLEASE READ ENTIRE QUESTION--I am looking for a recommendation from someone who had had FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE with software for an electrical contractor; this electrical contractor works in both the commercial and residential markets and does work on new as well as existing properties. They are looking for a solution that incorporates construction accounting (G/L, A/R, A/P, etc.), a service module for work orders, scheduling, dispatching, as well as T&M billing (mobile tracking included), along with a mobile app that includes invoicing & payments. They also want project and materials management for their bigger commercial projects, and proposal management that can easily be turned into actual jobs.  PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME LINKS TO SITES THAT COMPARE SOFTWARE as I have already done that myself--I have looked at a lot of sites that contrast and compare supposed constructor specific software but when I call and speak to these companies most are general purpose companies and DO NOT have the special and unique features needed in the electrical construction, maintenance and repair business. That is why I am asking for recommendation only from those who have had first-hand experience with actually using and/or implementing software in this very specific industry. They DO NOT want a solution that calls for combining solutions from many different companies, Thank you very much for your time.

hi,
I have a Talktalk account that allows me to divert my landline to another number. If i want to change the number i have to dial a series of codes from the landline phone itself. If Talktalk don't start to offer this feature as a remote service i may consider some kind of wifi remote controlled dialler, is there something like that in existence that's easy to setup? As i need to be able to change the divert number remotely.
Thanks

For someone who is coming from the in house IT world starting their own IT Managed Service (Small Business Only). What would be the best practice and most effective form of contractual agreements ? In other words what would be the best way to package services such as monitoring backups, system monitoring, patch management, av support, and support calls. What should contracts like this include ? For example if someone has a set amount of hours monthly contracted  and the customer will need more hours added since they've already used up the package amount. How would you structure the top up plan going forward ? Also what is the best contractual formula for web design as well as IT Managed Service ? My website is www.realtechcayman.com if anyone wants to see my offerings to get a better idea of how to answer these questions.

I had this question after viewing STOP: c0000218 (Registry File Failure) - Windows 2000 Server.

Hello everyone...after consulting with a few other forums on this topic, with limited success, I am hoping to find a definitive solution here on the Experts Exchange.

Having posted a number of topics on this issue elsewhere, I'll keep it brief: I have an HP Vectra desktop computer that runs Windows 2000 Professional, but the device was stricken with the c0000218 "Blue Screen Of Death" back in 2010. With the help of some online computer-repair forum users elsewhere, I've managed to make some progress in trying to troubleshoot the error In the past year-plus, but have unfortunately hit a bit of a standstill in the process, and no other forum users have been able to help me move forward. Which finally brings me here to the Experts Exchange page. To save some trouble, I will provide links to the other forum topics I've started, some of which have screen captures to illustrate my progress, at the bottom of this post.

Fortunately, much of the hard work has already been done by myself with the help of the other forums' users, so hopefully, that one helpful tip to get through my logjam can come from any one of you here on this site.

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies :-)

Hello, I am currently taking a course on CodeCademy.com on front-end web development so I'm fairly new to programming. Once I complete the course I'd like to begin with some basic projects for work to begin gaining experience. As a rookie, I know I will come across many challenges so I am looking to shorten the learning curve by obtaining guidance and support from a qualified mentor/consultant. Are there any providers out there that offer both free or paid consulting services?
I would need help with project consultation, troubleshooting, code review to ensure adequate standards. Thanks!

In a previous question we're shopping for an ingredient which comes in standard pack sizes of either 100g, 250g or 500g, having prices $0.40, $0.75 and $1.00 respectively.

Let:

PackSize = {100; 250; 500}
PackPrice = {0.40; 0.75; 1.00}

QuantityNeeded = {0.... up in steps of GCD(PackSize)... MaxQuantity }

GCD = greatest common divisor, eg GCD({100; 250; 500}) = 50

We only need to define a table with intervals in these steps as in between there won't be any change in the cost. I think this logic is right, please correct me if wrong.

We then define f_mincost(QuantityNeeded ) as the set of packs that meets the QuantityNeeded at minimum cost, eg:

f_mincost(1050) gives 1 x 100g + 2 x 500g at a total cost of $2.40

This problem is solved in the previous question by using dynamic programming to create a lookup table of values:

a) Quantity needed, eg 1050
b) Minimum cost, eg $2.40
c) Pack selection, eg 100, 500, 500

Questions:
1. What MaxQuantity do we need to tabulate upto before the pattern is repeating
    ie MaxQuantity = some function of Packsize
2. How can we define f_mincost(QuantityNeeded) as a function of this repeating pattern
   eg what is f_mincost(6400) as a function of f_mincost(some value <= MaxQuantity)

This is is probably straightforward but after the previous question my head has been frazzled!

Thanks again

Hi there,

I am curious to know if there is a process to help map all DIACAP controls to RMF ? Or if there is already a mapping that was done for this already.

Please let me know your suggestions or experience. Any bit helps

CompTIA Network+

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

I am a newly enshrined Telco Admin for Clark County Washington and need some help modifying
the dialing plan on 8 NEC 2000 phone systems.  They are finally instituting 10 digit dialing here
in a few months and need to make the appropriate changes to the 2000's to accommodate this.

Is there anyone who would like to make a few $$ consulting or assisting in the changes necessary.
Or can someone recommend a vendor who still supports these boat anchors??

Thanks!!

Scenario: bins are taken out once a week from a storage area to another location more than 20 meters away. I want to know if the bins have NOT been taken out at any given time each week.

eg if the bins are tagged and the storage area has a receiver, the receiver can tell me if the bins are in or out of storage.

I would like to tag around 4 bins only. What cheap and simple tagging solutions exist?  

I would like the receiver to connect to wifi so i can check the status remotely. The tag on the bins should be small and discrete, so as not to encourage vandalism or theft. They should also be very low power so that batteries, if the tag needs them, would need changing at most once a year. Perhaps a magnetic solution would avoid need for batteries on the bins.

The position of the bins in the storage area is not precise but would not vary by more than 2 meters.

Thanks

I wanted to know how I could get my hands on some Cisco labs?  I interviewed for a Cisco position, but don't have the full hands on for landing a Cisco position.  I was told that I could use VIRL, but it seems like the site does not offer any books or information with regards to creating my own labs.  

Thanks for the information.  I'd like to go more on the security route with Cisco.
