Hi Friends,

Just a short note to explain why those of you who have been following me may be curious as to why I suddenly disappeared from EE all of a sudden and apparently started ignoring all of your messages for the last couple of months.

Without going into too much detail, I've basically been in and out of hospital with a rather serious condition. My last stint in hospital was 4 1/2 weeks and I'm finally now home again on a "Hospital in the Home" program where district nurses regularly visit my home and I go back into the hospital once a week for doctors reviews.

The situation I'm in isn't about to change real soon, but I'm confident I'll beat it eventually  :-)

So that's my story gang.. My apologies for the lack of replies and if I do seem to disappear, please know it has nothing to do with Experts Exchange forums, which I continue to thoroughly enjoy.

Best..

Andrew

An update

Firstly, my sincere thanks for all the kind wishes, gives a person a warm feeling knowing that so many people care and took time out of their day to say so.

Since my last post, I ended up having to be readmitted into Hospital but got paroled to the "Hospital in the Home" program again today so back home again, hopefully for a little longer this time! :-)

Bless all of you and once again, thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Andrew

Hello, Apple Geeks & EE Experts!

Please update your Apple devices when you get home (iOS 11.1 & macOS High Sierra 10.13.1). This update is to fix the WPA2 KRACK vulnerability (the Wi-Fi issue). Kudos to John Hurst (one of EE's top Experts) for sounding the horn.

Thank you for your very gracious comment. I appreciated it. IOS 11.1 is working just fine on both our phones here. IOS 11.1 is also supposed to protect against KRACK Wi-Fi attacks.

I seem to recall that it is possible to get instant help from an expert via Experts Exchange.  Is that still the case?  What I need is MSAccess VBA and SQL.

Hello, EE Experts!

I wanted to make sure that all Apple users understand what's going on with the new Wi-Fi (WPA2) vulnerability "KRACK."

Apple is working on a fix to roll out as soon as possible to all its users. They've stated that there is a fix for this vulnerability in the beta versions, but that the fix is not in the latest update you have on your device.

So, what can you do?

Don't connect to Wi-Fi at hotels, coffee shops, or anywhere outside your place of business or home. Even at your house or area of work use a VPN.

Wait, even at my house?

Yes. Essentially the attacker can read all the information that is being transmitted wirelessly throughout your home. That said, if you use a VPN you're making an encrypted tunnel around the information you're sending and not relying on the WPA2 protocol that should keep your data safe. So, even if the attacker is looking at the data on your home network, the VPN is making it unreadable.

Also, if you're out and about, please turn off the Wi-Fi capability on your iPhone or iPad. By turning off the Wi-Fi, you're making your iPhone or iPad solely dependent upon cellular data, which is not susceptible to this attack.

Where can I get a VPN?

I use Encypt.me because it's fast, simple, relatively cheap, and works on all of my devices without In-app purchases. However, there are free VPNs that you can grab …

Hello, EE Experts!

If you haven't already updated your iOS devices to 11.0.3, please do so. I've tested it out (it's only been out two days), and it seems stable. That's it! Take care everyone.

Side note: Be on the lookout for my article on the Apple Watch 3 Series with LTE, since my wife and I are pushing them to the limits to give you the best information on whether or not you should buy one.

Hi, John!

10.13.1 for Mac is also available (of course the updates usually come in pairs).  ;)

Oh, here's another technology I'd like to learn: Google Apps Scripting. There's a lot of common things I do with Google Docs & Sheets on a regular basis and being able to automate some of it seems pretty handy. I know EE has a ton of great stuff about VBA scripting for Excel, Word, and such, but I mostly work in Google Apps and I've had no info at all about scripting for those products. (I honestly expected the Google apps might not have been mature enough to support scripting, but I was completely wrong about that!)

Just looked up Google's documentation site for it, and the whole thing is based on JavaScript (I'm not good at JavaScript, but I'm at least familiar with some basics). That also means I've got plenty of experts in-office and on the site for when I need help :-)

Will have to start experimenting with it this weekend!
