Today a law firm client called and mentioned they could no longer access Word Document, PDF Files and other network data. After chatting a bit they mentioned that a user saw a window called Crypto Locker which asked for money to restore access on the files.
A title company in Nebraska has agreed to pay $92,782 to 24 workers in back pay after the U.S. Department of Labor checked them out. The Labor folks found violations for overtime and record-keeping. They concluded that a closer is not an exempt employee.
Outlook 2010 took the old *.nk2 files and stuffed them into a cache which is a hidden mailbox message. That all sounded good to me, the nk2 files were a pain, I looked forward to a slick management interface in EMC or at least the EMS. None was to be found, but there is a way, albeit slow processing the whole process takes a few minutes on a slow computer.
The Web is an interesting place, when we start distributing systems over diverse physical locations fun things can happen. One person can have access to a resource, while another one is denied. Chicago says but it works for me while Columbus says, it's down for us. Today after a 4 or so hour outage of FedEx Web Services that's precisely what happened as the systems were coming on line.
I built this cradle for our first born, it was taken from plans I found on the internet which was for a smaller almost doll sized cradle. I wanted one my daughter could keep for a while, this one has a standard 18 x 36" bed.
Today I was installing some new Insteon devices to control lights other stuff. I needed to determine if the circuit was energized. I have a large variety of test equipment that could answer that question, DVM, VTVM, Probe, and just a normal analog volt meter. The thing that caught my eye was the Christmas light tester, it has a voltage proximity detector built into it.
I wondered how many people had one of these and didn''t know they had a rather sophisticated voltage tester for home use.
It works great, make sure the LED lights up to confirm the three LR44 batteries are good, and point the loop nose of the Light Keeper Pro near the wire. Beeping means don''t touch the wire! It only works an inch away from the wire, so touch the insulated part of the wire with the nose, or get it real close.
Everybody should own one of these, well at least until the LED bulbs take over the season. Then they''re going to need one of these.
Have you ever wondered about how Google index pages. They don''t use <META> tags as much as they used to.
<meta name="robots" content="index, follow" <-Default behaviour->
