How about a sticky for online learning resources for IT skills?
https://www.coursera.org/ as a starter for 10 - IT, as well as lots of other subject areas
I'm going to learn python to add another string to my rather forlorn bow.
Python 3 seems the obvious choice, but there's so much python 2 out there that it looks like python 3 hasn't really taken off.
Is this true? Am I better learning 2 instead of 3? Are the differences so profound that...
I am looking for advice as I want to work in IT. I spoke with a company called irubbish.website who recommended their New to IT package. This included several courses like comptia a+, windows 7 etc.
Are these the courses I should be studying and has anyone come across this company.
I have a Lumia 1020 which was a game-changer in camera phones 2 years back - more like a real camera squeezed (just) into a phone.
But mine is dying now and I'm wondering which way to go....
So where are we at these days? Does every £100 phone pack as good a camera as the 1020 or is it still...
Read the FAQ, looks like it's all now free fill yer boots!
Trying to write some online invoicing software and want to prevent submitting partially filled form with enter. Used the solutions on the net, ie
stuck onkeydown='noenter();' on inputs and added some jscript:
var x = event.which || event.keyCode;
if (x == 13) return...
Does anyone know any clients that are desperate enough to take developers from France as I have a database of French and other EU skilled workers?
I have a relative. Their phone number originally belonged to a nightclub. The nightclub has since re-opened. Google still has the nightclub phone number displaying, so my relative is getting calls late at night.
We have both suggested that the phone number is wrong using the edit function. And...
I am sure this problem is common with the mega-millionaires that inhabit CUK, but at the fringes of the house the wifi strength is poor. My twins have started whining(aren't teenagers supposed to sulk in their room?).
I have tried playing round with the router position which has helped a little....
I'm hoping I can pick some of your brains regarding a current client project I'm involved with.
Without going into too much details, client has asked me to produce a system to track a particular type of NHS patient record. An iPad app will be used to scan this document into the system, where it...
Does anyone here have BT Infinity BB, if so do they need to dig up your drive to install it (like Virgin do) or does it just come down the phone line as per the non-fibre BB?
Online videos on news pages won't load, just sit there spinning. Check element and they are always HTML5. YouTube and most other videos are ok, presumably because they have fallback. Under the element on this HTML video - HTML5 Video is a line "Your browser does not support HTML5 video"
Trying to figure out a sensible way to achieve this.
I receive a data file which is a straight structured fixed length file with cr/lf delimters. Something like:
My objective is simply to import this into rows in a table.
This needs to be within a...
Is there such a thing as a portable MiFi device that can be configured to automatically use a site-to-site VPN so any device connected to it would be routed through the VPN, rather than having to configure a VPN on each and every device?
I keep many files on my computer. Yesterday I opened the working file and WinZip gave the following msg - the wrong data in the zip file.
There are some ideas on how to restore a file?
I'm after a new monitor for working from home, got to be at least 24", is 4k worth it resolution wise (as I spend most of my time working in IntelliJ on my Mac), or will 1080p do just as well?, less that 400 notes would be ideal, any recommendations?
I currently have a Synology NAS (soon to be replaced by QNAP or HP Gen8 Microserver).
I have a Macbook which I tend to manually copy the Itunes library & Photos folder over to the NAS once a month for backup. This is tedious and involves manually delete & recopy of the folders.
I really don't like Google Maps, firstly because half the screen is taken up by a useless box on the left, but mainly because the minor roads are so light and in many cases pretty much invisible!
I doubt if OS maps are free, because they seem to want to wring every penny out of their maps. But I...
Calling all code monkeys, need some help!
Got a wordpress theme that is causing me grief, the bit in the style.css file is
Don't worry not about to stalk anyone or worried they might be stalking me (although I'm sure of you fancy me!).
Assume a forum post is associated with an ip address. With said IP address, you could work out a posters location and organisation (they've posting from).
Assume only an admin...
I've used Winamp since year dot but have recently started to wonder if there are more modern ways to manage and listen to music.
Ideally it would work both on OS X and Windows, on premises but a cloud sync wouldn't harm.
Any thoughts, pointers, war stories?
Ps. Those ancient mp3s that...
