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
My 13yr old likes to draw and has a cheap linx10 windows 32bit tablet which does not have pen support. I would have just purchased a £70ish Wacom Intuos art graphic tablet for her to use with the windows 10 tablet but apparently the corel software only work on 64bit windows installations...
On the bench so got a bit of time and considering doing a few.
Obviously, the ones (Vmware, Oracle) where you have to pay for the course are off bounds. Considering Red Hat certification - not too cheap at something like £400 but you don't have to do the course first.
Fed up of poor wifi coverage
Sky have mentioned a couple of products for boosting coverage
Has anyone used these or anything else?
I only backed a couple of high-profile KS things (Exploding Kittens) but was really interested in this one:
It seems almost too good to be true but as the old adage says... I started reading the comments and there are quite a few...
Does anyone know what the monthly cost will be to get an Azure pay as you go subscription but only for development testing, so there will be no traffic. Effectively I only need 2 or 3 web applications ( web sites or whatever they are called ) and 2 - 3 very small databases for these web apps. So no...
Slightly related to the other thread, but the place we're moving to in the country has about 1/2 acre attached. It has the potential to be incredible but right now is overgrown to the extent I can't easily get a mental picture of how it fits together especially with elevation changes... what I...
My trusty Tranquil Server is ten years old and although it's working OK, I've had a couple of disk overheats so I'd like to replace it before I have to.
As it has to be Windows and I'd prefer a smaller box I was looking at the HP Gen8 but was worried it might be underpowered. Anyone got one or...
Just ordered it, more for fun than anything else.
Anyone else got one? Any views, hints, tips?
I need to put in a planning application for some work I want to do to my house. For this I need to submit some scale drawings of each elevation of the property.
I'm so cack-handed, there's no way I could draw them manually, and I don't want to pay an architect £100 per hour to do it.
Some daft nonce has decided to throw some dog poo at my car this morning, as possibly they think I've not cleaned up after my dog outside their place. This couldn't be further from the truth as I'm proper anti lazy owners who are too lazy/feckless to clean up after their dog. They don't deserve...
Anyone got a quick and dirty guide to AWS so I sound like I know what I am on about, doesn't need to be technical, say a PM/Delivery Manager level guide?
I'm not a contractor but figured I'd ask this here because you guys probably have as good an overview of what's going on than anyone.
I've worked in various analyst roles (Excel, Access, some SQL, BI and reporting) but am looking to upgrade my skills as I'm not seeing step-up roles that I could...
Anyone tried this as an option for a free SSL certificate?
Anyone used flat Cat6 cable with a PoE device?
Only just discovered flat Cat6 cable, I thought the way the pairs were twisted reduced the loss, so having it flat, does that not loose some of that???
Seen a few people talk about having dedicated work-rooms built in the past, either with/without nifty tax breaks.
Who's got what then? Specifically talking about rooms built from scratch, out-buildings converted into offices, etc... share as much or little about cost and so on as you feel happy...
It seems pretty weird as my tiny business is hardly running for the US presidency but when I check visitors to my site who have clicked on products but not completed a purchase, 60%+ are from Russia.
Just recently I have found two dbase records that are significantly different from the original...
Bought a house, new build in UK, has solar panels, anyone idea how they work, i.e. in terms of how to read what they are doing, how much energy is being used by house and fed back into grid?
No-one bothered to tell me, builder has no idea (contractor installed them), no instructions, and I'm not...
Have an Excel accounts sheets that uses data connection to retrieve sales records from my shopping cart. Got a lot of Windows 10 updates today including a security update for Excel and now it's not working any more.
The main code is:
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= thisurl,...
So the misses macbook pro was in her handbag when a bottle of water leaked over it.
Did the usual, so let it dry out for a couple of days and started it up, looks good apart from the battery not holding charge but she has used it for a couple of days when its plugged in.
Anyway, she went back...
If this was windows I could knock this out in seconds, but it's linux and I haven't much experience, or more to the point examples that I reverse engineer and rip off
I have two variables say "name" and "location"
What I want to be able to to is create a script that will allow me to pick one...
