I just started my 7 day Trial of Cloud Class and am looking for a course that I saw before Cloud Class was introduced.  It was about how to do things on a MAC that you can do on a Windows machine, but I can't seem to find it no matter how many search terms I've tried.

Can anyone point me to the video/course in question?

While trying to comment on this question:

The Write a Comment form appears to have a height of 217827px (probably about 217300px too much). The Preview and Submit buttons were way down the bottom. I was able to preview my comment, but when I submitted it, the page reloaded without the comment (it didn't get added to the page). I tried again with a Hidden comment as a test, and the same thing happened. It seems quite broken.

I've tested it in both Chrome and Firefox, after hitting ctrl-F5 to force a refresh of the page.
How to delete Saved Searches and stop the damn hourly notices?
These damn things are annoying as hell and suddenly, without any involvement from me, have been turned on and I cannot stop them! I'm assuming it was a wonderful idea from someone at E-E.

- I've changed notifications to none by deselecting all of the hourly notification settings
- I attempted to find the place in E-E to delete the search, just so I stop getting notified, and cannot find that.

Please assist with how to stop these hourly notices and with deleting the search.
anyone knows how to disable the topic notifications ?

i mean the notifications under the on site bell icon

Suggestion: Could everyone please avoid posting links to External Site Articles if the same information is available at Experts Exchange? I see this happening quite often and think that it would be better to point question askers to articles Published by, and hosted at Experts Exchange instead?

Not only do most of our articles have excellent information by some of our great experts, but also, by providing a link to an EE hosted published article, the Question Asker then has the opportunity to ask for clarifications from the article author.

Just a suggestion :-)

I think the issue steps from Experts do not know that an article exists!

and the EE Search, is not exactly Google!

It would be nice, if when an EE Question was typed in before posting, EE suggested that they have the following Articles, which may solve their Question, similar to other Forums.

But it's deeper than this on EE, the articles I wrote were to address the common questions which come on in the VMware topic area, BUT Askers still want hand holding and a dialogue with Experts, even if you have a Good Article to point them to...

Some do not even want to read the article, they want that EE hand held experience.
Why have you changed the points awarding mechanism? It makes it impossible to see what is going on. Often I want to award points to multiple contributors; it is either impossible or very vague.

What was wrong with the prior system?

Change just for the sake of change is NOT good.

I am a long time (probably 10 years or more) EE user, it is an extremely valuable resource.

Why make it harder to use?
Learning PowerApps and have used paid version of Experts Exchange on other topics with great results.  Did a search for "PowerApps" here and only found a handful of questions and answers.  

Are there PowerApps experts available to answer questions or is this too new at this time?  I noticed there is only a proposed topic for (*PowerApps), so not sure if going paid is worth it at this point.  

Any feedback on this topic?

Thank you for participating on this question!
Note that there is no points allocated section in this message.
This Q came to my attention via a Neglected Question Alert. It is priority high. Normally one of these is worth 3600 points.
When I hover over my solution, it says 2250 points were awarded. What is going on?
I ask a question and can edit question until first expert comment.

Can expert edit their comment?

Can first expert edit comment after second expert posts comment.

I ask because I should read comments from beginning multiple times because first expert comment may change.

How can I embed a correction into a previously answered question?

In February of 2017 I posted a lengthy summary of how to print a vba project to a file.

In June of 2017  I added a short correction at the bottom of the post.

But, I would much prefer to have embedded the June correction directly into the lenghty February post.  I also working on some additional details that I would like to add.

That way, anybody who grabs my solution would not have to read the entire post.

Is there anyway to do this?
I would like to contact Experts Exchange.  Can someone give me their phone number.

Andy's VMware vSphere tip#21: End of Support Life for vSphere 5.5, which includes vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 5.5 and vCenter Server 5.5.

The official VMware KB is here...

I've seen many posts recently, Experts jumping in and posting, ESXi 5.5 is not supported after September 2018, which is a true statement, but it does not really help the Member posting a question, as to what the issue is today they are experiencing.

also... that is not really a hard and fast rule, Support for ESXi 5.5 CAN be extended if you purchase support.

"In the event you are unable to upgrade before the End of General Support (EOGS) and are active on Support and Subscription, you have the option to purchase extended support in one year increments for up to two years beyond the EOGS date. Visit VMware Extended Support for more information."  

"Technical Guidance for vSphere 5.5 is available until September 19, 2020 primarily through the self-help portal"

e.g. all the firmware, security and critical update patches, software will still be available for download, all VMware Kbs, and VMware Communities information will still be available.

What does this mean to you and your organization ?

1. Unless you are covered by a valid support and subscription, and purchased extended support, you will not be able to make a telephone support, or email support, or online support request for vSphere 5.5.

2. If you Support and Subscription has expired - not …
