ArticlesVideosEE: Download statistics on Experts Exchange Articles and Videos - Demo of Enhancements
My 100th publication here at Experts Exchange is an article that presents a program called ArticlesVideosEE, which is able to download the Title, number of Views, number of Endorsements, number of Points, number of Comments, and Date Published for each article and video whose link is in a list. You may read the article here:

How to download number of Views, Endorsements, Points for Experts Exchange Articles and Videos

I also published a five-minute EE video Micro Tutorial with a demonstration of the program:

How to download number of Views, Endorsements, Points for Experts Exchange Articles and Videos--Demo

As you can see from the Title of the article and video, I enhanced the program after publishing the initial version to include columns for the number of Comments and the Date Published. There have also been three other enhancements:

• Ability to specify all the run-time parameters in a configuration file (config.ini) so that (i) the source code does not have to be modified to specify new options/settings and (ii) the Browse dialogs shown in the first video may be avoided.

• Support for a Command Line Interface (CLI) such that a different configuration file (not just config.ini) may be specified on the command line, thereby allowing great flexibility to run ArticlesVideosEE in a command/DOS prompt, a batch file (.bat), the Task Scheduler, programs/scripts, etc. — anywhere that a command line call can be made.

• Addition of a debugging parameter (

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

This video Micro Tutorial is a supplement to that article, providing a demonstration of the program.

1. Download and install AutoHotkey


If you do not already have AutoHotkey installed, read this EE article:

AutoHotkey - Getting Started

Follow the instructions in that article to download and install AutoHotkey.

2. Download the ArticlesVideosEE program


If you have not yet downloaded the ArticlesVideosEE program, read my EE article:

How to download number of Views, Endorsements, Points for Experts Exchange Articles and Videos

Download the ArticlesVideosEE program attached at the bottom of that article.

3. Create a plain text file with the URLs of your EE articles and videos


Following the instructions in my article, use Notepad (or whatever text editor you prefer) to create a file with the URL list (each article/video URL on a separate line).

4. Run the ArticlesVideosEE program


In Windows/File Explorer (or whatever file manager you use), double-click the ArticlesVideosEE.ahk file to run it.

The above works because a standard installation of AutoHotkey (done in Step #1) associates the .AHK file extension with the AutoHotkey program.

Respond to the Browse For Folder prompt to navigate to the folder where you want the Results file stored.

How to ask an Anonymous Question
In response to a need for security and privacy, and to continue fostering an environment members can turn to for support, solutions, and education, Experts Exchange has created anonymous question capabilities. This new feature is available to our Premium Members, Team Accounts, and Qualified Experts!

Anonymous questions allow for ultimate anonymity by replacing users’ display names and avatars with our anonymous avatar, coupled with a text string detailing the anonymous submission of the content. As an added layer of protection, anonymous questions can only be viewed by Experts Exchange members and do not appear in common search engine queries.

OWASP: Threats Fundamentals

OWASP: Threats Fundamentals

Learn the top ten threats that are present in modern web-application development and how to protect your business from them.

[Webinar] Is Your Active Directory as Secure as You Think?
Microsoft Active Directory, the widely used IT infrastructure, is known for its high risk of credential theft. The best way to test your Active Directory’s vulnerabilities to pass-the-ticket, pass-the-hash, privilege escalation, and malware attacks is to conduct regular penetration tests. However, most organizations don’t have the resources for this, and simply assume their environment is secure enough.

Many experts, like Ascent Solutions and Skyport Systems, know that “secure enough” isn’t really enough and have taken strides to identify the attack vectors and establish best practice mitigation guidance.

Howard Friedman from Ascent Solutions, Russell Rice of Skyport Systems, and Gene Richardson from Experts Exchange hosted a webinar to showcase:

  • How to gain confidence that your environment will survive a penetration test and be safeguarded against an actual attack
  • The threat model for Microsoft Active Directory domain controllers and its importance
  • Common attack vectors and best practice security techniques
  • How to comply with advanced guidance and mitigate many attack vectors

You may not of been able to ask your question during the live webinar, but you can keep the conversation going! Ask your question now!
