This is my oldest daughter and I...They are inducing her tonight and little Steiner Knox will be here before we know it...I am still not believing I'm a grandfather...especially since my other daughter is 7...still doing the Dad thing full time...
I am nowhere near an expert in this areas but before coming to a SMB, I worked in a huge enterprise with a petabyte+ of SAN storage and we had ESX VM's all over the place...there were some redundancy issues when it came to some SAN errors in the firmware but overall, ESX was pretty solid.
Here at my one man IT shop and thanks to ML's, I am set up on Hyper-V.
Update on yesterday's reboot. Here is what "WebRoot" said:
The particular issue being reported is related to a wireless keyboard being in place. There are a few Microsoft wireless keyboards that the drivers can conflict with ours, at this time the workaround sent would resolve this issue however a more permanent fix is being developed.
So my wireless keyboard was at fault. We changed a setting and now it is working. I'm very impressed with their support and expanding my testing of WebRoot. .
I've seen a couple of sites mentioned for training in the IT field.
I probably missed a ton though. What others are worth looking at?
This is the list so far (in alphabetical order):
Udemy is pretty good...they run sales often (if they are really "sales") and most of the purchased courses I've taken have been very good.
So it is official now...wonder what they can do in 6 episodes, if it won't be the "alien conspiracy" plot...
It's true...when winter weather is forecasted in Arkansas, we do get our bread and milk...I did so in shorts yesterday...a WINTER STORM WATCH and it was a nice 73 degrees yesterday.
This morning, WINTER STORM WARNING and 23 degrees...gotta love it!
I've been in theatre for 28 years (community level)...I've been in the kids ministry for 5 years (not ordained but as a volunteer and once as Interim Pastor as they searched for a new one.) I'm in front of the kids all the time and have done a few things in front of our congregation (large church)...last night, after this skit me and the kids pastor did (pictured), I was told I'd have to lead the congregation in a prayer...THAT, my friends, was so scary...not sure what it is about public prayer but to choose the words and lead 200-300 that were there last night, man I was scared but it went well...and I got to use my Surface Pro 3...:)
Looks like the topic ran away from me...been swamped with other things this past week...glad to see it made for good conversation.
Guess what? Today's "Patch Tuesday" fixed this issue...go figure...
I have a strange issue and if it weren't for needing to update Facebook and Instagram for work, it wouldn't be a problem. It sounds trivial but I do need to resolve it before others have the same issue.
I decided to get a head start on Windows 11 to begin using and testing it. I upgraded on my Work PC, Laptop and On-Call LTE Surface. On the laptop and Surface, I also did a CLEAN install after the upgrade but did not do a clean install on my WorkPC. My laptop and Surface are NOT DOMAIN joined.
On my Domain Joined work PC, I can no longer access Facebook or Instagram via Microsoft Edge. You type the URL, and the tab has a "spinning" indicator but the page never loads nor does it give an error...it will usually perpetually spin or just show a white page. I fired up Chrome and same thing but if you wait long enough it MAY load but mostly the same thing.
I've tried a different Edge Profile and even used guest and in-private mode. Same results.
If I disable the network card on this domain joined PC and go on the Wi-Fi (which is outside domain), Facebook and Instagram work fine. As soon as I reenable the network card on the domain, bam, it stops.
I went ahead and upgraded another, domain joined PC in the office (with a different PC name) to Windows 11 and tried Facebook and Instagram and they work under my profile. Just fine.
So I decided to clean install my work PC to see if something was gummed up. I joined my PC (under same PC name) to the domain, tried Facebook and Instagram and same problem. Pages just spin and spin and won't load.
I did take my PC off the Domain and tried to connect to Facebook / Instagram and the same...nothing. I drop off the hardwired network and to WiFi and it works.
Also, Google Sites are much slower to load.
So I am assuming it has something with my PC name on this domain. I am the IT Director and ONLY IT person here so it isn't like someone went in and blocked those sites.
Any clue? I often update our company's social media sites daily so it is inconvenient to move to a new PC just to do this.
@garak0410 sometimes I love it, sometimes... yeah, it's just a mess. What the heck is going on and any series that depends on the "alternative universe" angle I find just lazy and incompetent.
I did honestly like some of the "Talosians" episode especially the "retro" showing of the original Captain Pike...but up to then I was still confused on the timeline of when Discover took place...I thought the first Talosian episode would take place during "Strange New Worlds"...
I rewatch all the Star Treks except TOS and the cartoon about every two years. I need to toss TOS into the mix as well.
Voyager is definitely the most unintersting compared to the rest.
Voyager pretty much dropped their premise within the first half of the first reason and they were just a "Lost in Space TNG" for the last 6 season...there are many good episodes in there, especially BLINK OF AN EYE...and most "Doctor" episodes...but overall, it was a missed opportunity...
Season 1 was a fucking mess.
Season 2 was too much drama for no reason.
Season 3 is actually a decent show.
But if binged S1 then S2 and tried to jump in S3? OMG just no, I do not think I could take it either.
I will then approach Season 3 of DISCOVERY as a new show then. I just couldn't get past Michael and Book meandering around for the first 30 minutes or so.
I'm actually looking forward to STRANGE NEW WORLDS with Captain Pike.
TNG is definitely my #1. I grew up with the original series and I like it, but it isn't at the same level. But I really love the original series movies.
DS9 I only discovered and really enjoyed recently. I watched only enough to hate it when it first came out.
Voyager I really liked my first time through, but I think it was mostly nostalgia for TNG. Watching it again, it lacks something (a lot, really.)
I watched TNG's "The Emissary" last night and I so forgot how much slow, character driven stories are so much better than "all over the map" Discovery stories are.
@marcinozga Yes, sorry...PICARD will be in the middle (I edited my list) of the list because of how it did try to respect TNG and DS9 but turned Voyager upside down with the killing Icheb in the way they did. It didn't need to go so dark.
I've been a lifelong Star Trek Fan. I've grown to love the ORIGINAL Series the best and for grins, this is my (live action) series ranked:
Star Trek - The Original Series
Star Trek - Deep Space Nine
Star Trek - The Next Generation
Star Trek - Voyager
Star Trek - Picard (Edit)
Star Trek - Enterprise
Star Trek - Discovery
I just completed the first two seasons of Discovery and got half way through the third season premiere and just had to stop and this is why:
I feel Overwhelmed and Bored.
I am not only bored with the storyline but I am overwhelmed with how manic is it with not only the special effects but just the lack of focus. Is it just me or is the show a mess?
