And while those in power can easily tailor their own historical "truth" as needed, the people beneath them are stringently held hostage by emaculate records of their every waking hour to be sure that at all points they both can and will be held accountable for the merest of miss-steps.
What, "every waking hour" from from birth to death?
Would that include things such as, for example (say) birth certificates, citizenship records, religio-political affiliations and scholastic records?

You left out pecker measurement. They got that too I'm sure. Grin

That got covered (/measured) in the LG thread ... Damn panda had a camera in it too...

So... you're looking for an ongoing interactive relationship between all of the players that will continuously sync contacts regardless of which system they are created in? Zoiks! ...That will be a bit tricky. I've worked with manually integrating/importing the contacts/calendars/mail from other systems into Exchange so that it will be used exclusively going forward. But the live action stuff I've never tried (or even thought to). I'm generally brought in to collapse discontiguous system into one fully integrated single (Exchange...) package.

It is interesting that OWA 2013 will merge it properly...yet still not convey said compilation to a local copy of Outlook ... Is the local copy 2013 also?
578  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: November 21, 2013, 12:06:11 PM
Stoic Joker knows lclock very well, so i'm sad to see that the calendar part wasn't straigt up copy pasted from that! The look and functionality were so to the point, it was amazing. You left click the clock, the nice calendar comes up, double click any date and you get to set an alarm!

While I have heard of Lclock, I was never involved with the project...or its development.

I closed down the T-Clock project (an entirely different branch of which there were several off the original project) about a year ago, as windows seems to be moving away from the taskbar style UI - making a Taskbar Clock rather pointless - and because I just don't have the time to continue with it. I did however release the source code for T-Clock when I announced the project's closure in the hopes that someone would have the time to continue the project.

One of the other members here (LonelyPixel I believe) is responsible for the T-Clock GitHub repository. The code is there for all to use as they see fit. My only request is if someone creates a build containing features/fixes/tweaks/etc. that they remove my name from the program's name as it is no longer Stoic Joker's T-Clock ... It's [Your Name Here] T-Clock...and it should be labeled accordingly.

As you can see from the screenshot above, there are 3 subfolders...

Screenshots?


The only one that gets synced is the subfolder "Contacts".  From Microsoft's FAQ:
Quote
Can I synchronize multiple calendar or contacts folders?
You can only synchronize your default calendar folder, contact folder, and tasks folder.

The problem is that those other folder like facebook and linkedin have additional information that is merged with contacts in the "Contacts" folder.  on the website, everything works beautifully, pictures,merged stuff, etc.  but on the phone, only the info from contacts shows up.  So this is not working any better than any other solution.

You can only sync one folder but there can be multiple items (calendars/contacts/etc.) in that folder ... But I'm not sure what you're looking at. If it worked on the Windows phone, and I know at least calendars work fine in the iStuff, it stands to reason it should work on the android as well. But that may depend on the IMAP client software. I'm assuming that with the Windows phone you were using Outlook ... And there should be an option with the 365 demo to get whatever variant on Outlook they have available for Android to see what if any impact it may have on the behavior.

There is also the option of calling MS for support to see if there is a configuration option to pull those together.

Your address book is your address book which you can access from anywhere/thing. You can share your address book with other users on the same system, but it is typically restricted to just you.

The global address book is globally available to all users of the system. Distribution lists that are to be accessible by all users in a company will typically be in the global address list. This is designed to be accessed by everyone, and cannot be restricted.

No wonder our politicos see the world as just one more manifestation of the virtual reality they apparently dwell in. With no fixed record of the past, the present and future are perpetually up for grabs and subject to change without notice.

And while those in power can easily tailor their own historical "truth" as needed, the people beneath them are stringently held hostage by emaculate records of their every waking hour to be sure that at all points they both can and will be held accountable for the merest of miss-steps.

Yeah...that's just a teensy bit one-sided me thinks.
585  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Does anyone know how I may remove Trojan Dropper:MSIL/Livate.A ? on: November 20, 2013, 06:50:42 AM
but if it was a hijack virus it would usually lock the infected PC so I just removed the infected drive and connected it to my PC and cleaned it with Malwarebytes.

Can't say I haven't done that in the past, but... That method assumes that the bug is old enough to be identified by your SS and that it is not inclined to hop (a dicey gamble at best these days). While the bootable CD method is much slower, it is also considerably safer as the infected system stays isolated and doesn't leave you exposed to unnecessary risk.

But how effective will this be in actual practice?  Doesn't this only apply to such litigation brought to NZ courts and within its bounds?
Yes. It's a start at least, with NZ getting it's own house into more sensible order.

How many high profile software patent cases have been brought up in NZ court?  Just wondering if this is more of a symbolic win than a practical one?

Think of it as quitting while you're ahead, or nipping something in the bud. They've seen what a total disaster the US has made of SW patents...so they simply avoid that level of mess by learning from the mistakes of another.

Innovation can only flourish when the lawyers are quiet.

99% of the time when something isn't working in your house, one of your kids did it.

We have a special term for that in my house, and it's named after my husband.  Grin

Computing: A printer consists of three main parts:  The case, the jammed paper tray, and the blinking red light.
5 main parts...all of the above, the empty ink cartridge, and the indecipherable error message that won't go away.  cheesy

Computing: If your computer says:  Printer out of Paper, this problem cannot be resolved by continuously clicking the "OK" button.
But it can be resolved by taking a sledge hammer to a printer, that's obviously full of paper.  Wink

It is my professional opinion that these last two are indeed correct.

Er...here's an odd thing or question:

Since I previously had a Windows Phone 8, all my contacts were perfectly synced on it.  If I login to the Windows Live site on my computer, the same perfectly synced contacts show up.  Now, one would expect to be able to link those contacts to my desktop Outlook 2010...but such an option doesn't seem to exist!  What the Fu--!  Microsoft won't even play nice with itself?  Geez.

Hehe I was actually glad none of the crap in my MSN/Hotmail/Live account cluttered up my Outlook ... But I know what you mean. Seems like I did find a way to bounce stuff between at one point, but I think it involved the Zune (or whatever it's called) software and individual .vcf contact files.
So how do you keep track of contacts on your phone/computer?  What if you manually add one on the computer?  What if you manually add one on the phone?  Do you keep exporting/importing them with csv files?  What about profile photos?  What about info changing on facebook or linkedin (emails, numbers, etc.)?

For our operation (we have Exchange in-house) The Exchange side keeps everything synced between devices, and I just ignore the MSN/Hotmail/Live account that clutters up my phone. I should have tied it to my work live account, but had a stupid moment and plugged in my personal account instead ... And I never got around to flattening the phone (a requirement that truly does suck) to switch accounts.
592  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: central addressbook software for syncing everything with everything on: November 15, 2013, 06:37:27 PM
MS hosted Exchange: $4 per user per month - with a 1 user minimum - and it will sync everything with anything (Android/iLife/etc.) on the fly.
Where can I find more details on the features?  I'm checking out their website, and the lingo is so stupid and corporate bullshit.  How do the contacts get on the android?  is it integrated, or is it a separate app?  How does it work with desktop outlook 2010?  Photos from facebook?

You are seriously being way too kind. It really is total shit. Wink

If you can give me a day or so I can setup a demo acct for you (we're an MS cloud partner) so you can play with a live copy to see if it really does what you want.

How are your copies of Office 2010 licensed? If you have one of the agreements that includes upgrades (Software Assurance and some others), Office 2013 has native pdf editing that works quite well.

From an administrative standpoint, having less software to maintain is more time to get/keep your head above water.

And if Outlook.com, etc., were smart, they'd make it easy for you to upload the repository that it's possible for you to download from gmail.

If by Outlook.com you mean the hosted Exchange, then yes they have many rather exceptional import options.
597  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How long do hard drives actually live for? on: November 15, 2013, 07:33:41 AM
Like I said earlier - if you find yourself worrying about a drive, it's probably a good time to think about a replacement. Those subconscious trouble signals you pick up are often worth paying attention to once you have some experience under your belt.

I'll second the voodoo science/trust your instincts (e.g. don't ignore that funny feeling) angle, as it has server me well in the past (and bit me a few time when ignored).

Here's one (along those lines) that happened yesterday. Client has a computer lab with 15 machines, that were all (old) donated boxes because they are a nonprofit outfit. They let another group user their lab for a training session, and after the session, the folks then shutdown the machines to be considerate. The machines were supposed to be left on for the nightly maintenance routines to run ... so that hadn't actually been off for about 6 months.

The next morning - after finally cooling completely overnight - 7 of the 15 machines were completely - hardware failure - dead. 3 HDDs, 2 motherboards, 1 question mark, and we're pretty sure the last one is a zombie because it should have been dead months ago given how flakey it acts.
598  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: NLB and Load Balancing on: November 15, 2013, 07:13:16 AM
Yoikes! That sounds more than a little outside my area of expertise or experience. I doubt I could do more than toss out a few generalities about load balancing on that one as given. Grin

Stoic? You maybe wanna tackle it? smiley

Zoiks! That one is out of my range as well. IIRC everything session wise pivoted on the quorum drive so it would be available to the next machine as/if the load shifted due to a spike or outage. But specifics regarding how to get legacy apps to play nice in that environment I'd be afraid to guess. The Quorum drive sits on the SAN and is the session/connection holding (center of the star basically) area for the front line and backend systems.

NLB over simplified is just an isolated IP network between backend systems that handles only heartbeat packets allowing servers A, B, & C to know if one of them goes down, comes back up, or gets overloaded so they can respond accordingly. The response is/would be to either pluck or hand off some of the machine X session workload which is pooled in the quorum.

Sorry wraith, that's all I got.
