Golang, also called Go, is an open source programming language that is a statically-typed language with syntax loosely derived from C, adding automatic memory management, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library. Go is a general-purpose systems programming language that aims to be efficient both for development and execution with a focus on fast compilation and increased maintainability of large projects. Go was originally targeted at systems programming tasks such as building server/web applications, high throughput middleware and databases.

Andy's VMware vSphere tip#20: Created your 100 Daily VMware vSphere Daily Checks yet ? Our Sysops, when they start a shift monitoring VMware vSphere clusters, go through a checklist of 100 things to check, when they come on shift before they attend to anything else like putting the kettle on for a cuppa! I'll start you off...

You may think that 100 checks to perform, is time consuming, but it takes a Sysop approx 1 hour, to go through all checks, and sign them off.

1. Connected to vCenter Server without issue ?
2. Any alerts present at the Datacentre ?
3. Any alerts present at the Cluster ?
4. All hosts responding and online ?
5. Any alerts present per host ?

....

If you would like to discuss this post further please post a question to the VMware Topic area.

Cloud Class® Course: CompTIA Cloud+

The CompTIA Cloud+ Basic training course will teach you about cloud concepts and models, data storage, networking, and network infrastructure.

Hello. For 20 years I've been involved in IT as a school network manager, dealing with hardware, networks etc., but I've now taken early retirement and have been asked by my local church if I would help them with their IT. Needless to say, I said Yes, and the first thing they asked was how their website could be upgraded, improved, whatever.

I know how websites work, but I've never built one (the school had an IT teacher who was a web designer before becoming a teacher, so he could build websites while I hosted them), so I'm now diving into the deep end and would really appreciate any information about how to build websites keeping things simple.

I have Dreamweaver on my computer, but it's a commercially orientated package and I'm not ready to go that deep into website building,  so what options are there for me?

Thanks in advance for any support provided.

Phio.

Fun little situation just happened when a website asked me to use Flash.  (Who uses Flash still, come on Nextiva!)  I was stumped for a bit because I had Flash enabled on my Chrome Browser and the URL that I had allowed was Nextiva's main URL.  Turns out, clicking the URL in an email they sent me is not the same as the URL that was already allowed so I had to go to chrome://settings/content/flash and add a second Nextiva URL to get the page to work that I clicked from a link in an email.

Fun times.  Thanks for the help with this one, Junior!

This is a copy of part of the article located here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/how-to-fight-fcc-net-neutrality,36017.html

net neutrality
vote takes place 12/14/17:


Even so, it is the work of but a moment, so we all may as well do it. Go to www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express, and under Proceeding, enter 17-108 (the dystopian-named “Restoring Internet Freedom” order). Fill in the form very, very, very carefully, ensure you get an email confirmation, and submit.

Your voice will be louder, as it were, with a phone call. Call the FCC and leave a message letting the agency know that you want to keep net neutrality as it is. Dial 1-888-225-5322, and be polite, patient, and persistent. You want Option 1, Option 4, Option 2, Option 0. Enter a complaint on proceeding 17-108.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is ___, and I live in [city], [state]. I’m registering a complaint about the proposed repeal of net neutrality, because it will hurt American consumers, reduce internet access, and restrict the open flow of information. I strongly oppose the undoing of net neutrality, which is at the core of proceeding 17-108. Thank you.”

Then call your members of Congress. The FCC commission is appointed and makes these decisions, but Congress can pressure the agency to do the right thing, and it can also put forward legislation to make net neutrality law instead of just policy. Find your congresscritter at https://contactingcongress.org/, and call the local office …

Now is the time to get pissed.  If Net Neutrality is abolished then your ISP decides what you see, how often, how fast, if you see it at all, and at a much higher cost.  YOUR INTERNET BILL WILL GO UP!  Now is the time to contact your Federal Representatives in Congress and in the Senate and let them know that you are OPPOSED to the REPEAL.  If you don't do it now then the internet as we know it will be CENSORED and your bill will SKYROCKET!

Hello all,

I've got an issue with a server that is running Windows Server 2012 (Not R2) where it doesn't go to the lock screen after a specified amount of time.

I have tried editing group policies, power saver options (both normal and advanced) and changing a registry directory to bring up an additional option in power saver advanced options, none of which work.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Much appreciated.

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

Hi, I am trying to set up and Index / Table of contents in an Excel File with fixed or absolute references. When I use the insert hyperlink function and fix my references using $ when I go back later they have disappeared. I have tried using contextures but while it works it does not have the option to rename it like you can with a hyperlink. I need the links to move when the cell moves when I add or delete rows etc.  The link I have used is =HYPERLINK("#'"&E2&"'!D2") I have attached the sample I have been working with. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. ThanksEXAMPLES-.pdf

This is a recent tech related issue that happened to someone I know.  A scam unfortunately and the hacker took advantage of a very fragile situation too.  Its amazing at what lengths hackers will go to take advantage of a person during their plight.

A friend of mine lost their dog so they made a post on Facebook about that and if anyone could help them find their missing dog.  They put their email and phone number out there in that post.  Their post was shared numerous times.  A few weeks went by and someone contacted them saying they found their dog.  My friend was very excited to hear the news and asked how they can get in touch.  The person said they need to verify my friend really owns the dog and asked them for the security code that was just sent to their phone.  Not thinking of anything other than having a chance to see their loyal friend again, they provided the security code that was sent to their phone to this stranger.

Boom.  Their email was hacked.

Guard your phone number and email folks.  Facebook is a new way to spread the word and get some traction for things we need urgency on, but displaying private information publicly, even in dire situations, can bite you in the butt.  Even if a person who is friends with you on Facebook prods for private information you have to guard yourself and consider if they've even been hacked and someone is posing as them.

It happens and it sucks.  Many of us here probably wouldn't fall for something like this, but …

what use the PIN number would be without the physical card?

Scammers probably already have the card number. It is possible to make a new card, so once they have the PIN they can do whatever they want just like they had the real card. Fortunately the new chip enabled cars make this scam more difficult.

Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro aren't supposed to be competitors in my eyes, but Consumer Reports (CR) sees it a bit differently.

If you would like my take on it, the Surface Pro is just a smaller laptop that has tablet functionality. While the iPad Pro is a tablet that has laptop functionality but only depending on what apps you have. Meaning that you can use the iPad Pro for strictly playing games from the App Store, or you can turn it into a laptop replacement and use it to knock out those daily business chores.

All in all, we should all agree that we like what we like. If you're an MS fan, I'm sorry you got dinged like this, but if you're an Apple fan know that the iPad Pro can be a laptop replacement if you choose to use it that way. Oh, and don't go laughing at your MS buddies because CR smacked them on the hand. What goes around comes around, and we should all just respect that we have different taste and love to drive the machine of our choice.

Take care everyone.

Justin, the one that caught my attention is facetime. ugh! the only people you can connect with are other Apple devices. And I wasn't talking about using my Surface to manage SharePoint, I was talking about being able to see/use SharePoint and OneDrive from within Word, PowerPoint, Excel. The cloud storage is treated just like any other folder on my computer.

And I'm jealous of the vette.

Disable Automatic Reboot After Updates Installation

I want to inform you that Windows 10 and 2016 receives updates very often. About once a week it gets important fixes and patches requiring a system reboot to be installed. By default Windows 10 and 2016 is configured to reboot automatically for the installation of important updates. But this can cause inconveniences to you.

However, you can disable automatic reboot after updates installation via Windows Update settings, TaskScheduler, Group Policy and Registry Editor.

  • How to turn off auto-reboot in Settings App

This method allows you to choose time when you don’t want your PC to be rebooted in any case. But nevertheless your PC will be able to reboot to install updates when active hours end.

      1. Go to Settings.
      2. Click on Update and security.
      3. Click on Active Hours and specify when you don’t want your PC to reboot.
      4. If the restart has already been planned, you can also click on Restart Options and modify the restart time and postpone updates installation.

  • How to disable off automatic reboot using the Task Scheduler

One more way to disable auto-restart after installing updates is to disable the task in the Task Scheduler:

      1. Launch the Task Scheduler.
      2. Go to Task Scheduler Library/Microsoft/Windows/Update Orchestrator.
      3. Right-click on the task named Reboot.
      4. Select Disable.

  • How to disable automatic restart for installation of updates using the Group Policy

Quickbooks Scam

I had a client ask about using Quickbooks in multiple locations. My suggestion is to use the web version for eas of use and you get at least 3 user accounts vs having to buy multiple licensees for the desktop version.  

Just as I walked into the office I was told Quickbooks had already called in and was remoting in and working on it.  I asked my client which version and he was not sure.  I went to the computer and saw a big string of pings going through the command prompt.  Suspiciously, I  Jumped on the Teamviewer chat and asked if they are migrating to the web version or using the desktop. The "tech" asked if he could call me directly.  His voice was very hurried with a heavy accent and said if we went to the web version, payroll wouldn't work.  I know that is not correct and this didn't feel right and I asked if I could call him right back at the same time I ended the TV session.

Called into Intuit to verify and at the same time saw two payments from some electronic payment company that was not Intuit. One for $449.99 the other $999.99.  Both were for "Tech support" and not an actual product.  

I explained to my client he had been scammed.  In his email, I saw there was a password recovery. I asked if he gave out his password to the "tech".  Of course he did.  I had him change his password for his email account and quickbooks.  Next call was to the credit card company.  Right away there is a recording, "It looks like there are fraudulent …
