hey does anyone have the scripts to setup a new network ? I cant seem to get my head around this curl -X POST stuff... i got it compiled and properly running, i just need to create a new network. thanks
Last I heard it still doesn't have all the functionality of the non-hosted version. Still, if you can live without the features that it doesn't have, then it's a good option. Also consider some of the alternatives like Freshbooks.
I've heard that recently as well. Lots of limitations that you would not expect.
Yeah I used to work at Intuit so I was pretty familiar with both products. QBO was a complete rewrite, which is good because the QB codebase is 30 years old, but bad in that you have to play catchup with the features and the dev/support efforts.
How long is it taking to catch up? Isn't that like a decade?
No need to fiddle around with gcc toolchains, makefiles and whatnot.
This is one of the reasons I enjoyed developing with Visual Basic in Windows, and Gambas in Linux... I didn't have to muss around with Make files, etc... The system handled all that for me in the background.
I've switched to almost exclusively developing for the web now.
Yeah, it's odd. I'm asking myself why there are so much Java courses for students, but only a very few for C#. The .NET ecosystem is the best thing I have seen so far: Very well documented, very few bugs, runs on different platforms (ARM, x86, PPC..) and operating systems. Must be because Visual Studio wasn't always free. On the other hand, mono got its own compiler for many, many years now.
.NET is Windows centric and not appropriate to teach at university. It's also not nearly as common as Java. It's a good system for sure, but it is not academically apropos. Java is far from the only good option, but .NET is only appropriate as a side elective and as university should not be focusing on specifics, it's not really appropriate at all. If you learn Java, C# is a few days of work away from you.
.NET isn't so Windows centric anymore. Large parts of the framework are open source now and mono became a very good runtime today. In fact, I'm doing lots of stuff in C# on my ARM boards. Visual Studio is free for students and small companies. MonoDevelop is also ok. Not comparable in any way, but ok.
That's extremely recent and it's not really ported yet and Mono is... weak. I have high hopes, as I love C# and F# (heck, I wrote the certification tests for C#!!) will get wide adoption. But I'm not holding my breath.
You did? Hell, maybe I should get one just to see your test 😉
Yes, only one, not the entire series. One of the Previsor ones. I've written about a dozen certification exams over the years. I once had a job require me to take my own test in an interview. They were idiots. I told them ahead of time that I wrote it and then they nearly shit themselves when I scored the highest core ever. I wasn't sure if they thought that I was an idiot and could not pass my own test or if they thought I was lying. In either case, I wasn't too impressed.
I guess that I wouldn't want to work there anyway. I've always refused to take any test myself. "Thanks for the coffee, but no, bye". Got an offer from MS once, they sent me a test in a wordfile with some very, very stupid questions like "How many windows do you see when you open this developer tool?" REALLY, WHO CARES? Anyway, told them that if they send me that test by mail and I'm given like 4 hours for it to complete, I can easily cheat them by just using Google (or Yahoo). The lady on the other side didn't understand that.
Well I had to be somewhat impressed that they were paying hundreds of dollars per candidate to basically have me evaluating their candidates. But it also meant that I was way, way above what they were prepared to be working with. They wanted someone for a position that I would be hiring and mentoring. But you have to give them some credit for picking me as the person that they wanted evaluating people, even if indirectly 😉
Sounds basically where we are all aspiring to be one day
@TAHIN So I should be able to get away with the same entry as what you have then? What does the addition of "a mx" add?
Adding the 'a mx' parameters indicates that only servers that match a public A record or public MX record of your domain are allowed to send. Generally, just saying MX is enough - you're telling the recipient to fail the mail unless the sending IP matches the IP address of one of your domain's MX records, effectively eliminating spoofing. We added 'A' to give us the flexibility to source email from an application or DMZ server. The include: parameter overrides these defaults, allowing Google to proxy.
80% of the reason we (and most companies) implement SPF is to protect their own organization from incoming spearphishing via domain spoofing. The fact that it isn't 100% adopted by all organizations shouldn't be a deterrent to use it.
Im in the process of upgrading all of our servers to hardware based LSI Cards. They are not cheap, and are a little UI unfriendly, but we have not had a single problem with them and when I had questions during configuration (Because their UI sucks), their support answered immediately and gave me all the information I needed. LSI Cards are nice, the central RAID management is awesome and reduces maintenance costs
