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 currently putting the finishing touches to a Wordpress site that I converted from Joomla. The one piece of functionality that I'm having trouble replacing is to find a good file upload utility. The requirements:
A user should have the ability to upload multiple files (all small in size, static...
Anyone built their own website for their contracting company? I had a play with HTML and CSS a few years ago and i'm going to have a go at building myself a little site. Any advice for a beginner?
I've been working just under 1 yr as a contractor - basically a job I managed to get by fluke as I was struggling to get an interview in most places do to my previous experience being in a niche section of development which has left me out of touch with most modern techniques.
Dear Lazyweb, I have a folder on OSX with about 150 other folders within, most of the other folders have a folder in it call XYZ, how would I go about deleting all XYZ folders and anything in that folder without removing anything else.
This has been sitting gathering dust since Christmas, so I thought I would get connected and see if it helps the BB around the hoose.
Why the fook did I bother? Tested the speed *beforehand* lappy wifi and it was 108Mbps down 12Mbps up, which isn't too bad (VirginMedia)
Now after getting it...
potential new contract will require me to complete an audit of IT equipment at various sites.
So rather than attending every device to manually audit. I want to deploy some decent (& free ideally) audit software onto a local DC
and automate the process. So I can produce a report from each site...
I'm looking at Zoho Sites for building a simple web shop that can be run by a near computer illiterate. Just update product (text + images) and take orders.
Does anyone here have experience with said product or can suggest a better candidate?
Following the fun that is heartbleed I have an awful lot of passwords which I need to change.
So it seems a very good time to invest in a password manager. I've looked at 1password and lastpass but really want the best option (I'm not restricted to those two as I haven't bought one yet).
My Windows VM I run through parallels to RDP to my work PC updated itself - seemingly to some insider preview though I don't recall ever signing up to that - and now RDP doesn't work... the shift key doesn't work in full-screen RDP sessions only windowed.
RDP. FFS, they broke remote desktop....
I'm looking for a cheap ad free hosting solution with the described parameters but can't find anything that offers just that. The usual suspects' basic plans all include so much stuff I have no need for or wish to pay for. Similar to a gym that charges £20 extra per month for a swimming pool you...
Bear with me, as I'm not remotely technically minded.
I would like to sort out some wireless multiroom speakers. I assumed Sonos would make the most sense, but I keep reading about issues with playing BBC iPlayer content.
My main requirement is the ability to play BBC Radio through the...
Hi folks, what's the latest thinking on getting internet at a property that doesn't (yet) have a landline with BB?
I seem to recall one can get devices that do this.
Or do people simply tether to their phones?
EDIT: need it for a bout a month until BT get their arses in gear
Daughter wants one for birthday - has anyone got any real experience with one of them?
Rather than just anecdotal 'they explode' type stories?
Standard modern cloud architecture:
- AWS SQL Server engine
- Azure API Service (C# ASP.NET Web API 2)
- Angular front end application
I'm trying to figure how to secure documents that are uploaded so that they can only be accessed via the API layer and not open to the public (or a one-time...
Do any of you have a seperate Broadband Line for their business?? Why and who?
At the moment I share the house Broadband, but I am finding speeds are getting slower with all the devices that seem to be dropping on the network.
My man cave is a seperate building to the main house so I would...
I've a trusty old Kindle Keyboard + 3g which is arguably my favourite gadget. I keep looking at newer models and the choice is much wider now (Paperwhite/Voyager/Oasis) yet I'm unsure which if any offers a better experience. Other than the lack of back-lit screen for reading in bed without...
New gig is a 30-minute drive from home to the office, so I'm looking for an MP3 player that I can either connect via bluetooth or aux input to my car stereo. I don't really want to swap out the stereo as it's a Landrover all-in one thing.
Anyone got one they would recommend?
Anyone got one...
One for the cloud types working in the real world.
With companies adopting cloud technologies it made me wonder which, if any, was more popular between IaaS, PaaS and SaaS?
Many questions here....
So are companies moving servers and applications from their on site datacenters (probably...
I'm probably a bit late to the party on this one, but I finally got round to building a new server with a view to having a more VM-orientated setup. To this end I got a Dell T20, 32Gb of non-ECC ram (for £99!) and a 500Gb Samsung SSD. Installed Windows 2012 R2 Server and VMWare Workstation Pro 12...
