There are numerous videos online that might give you more info, such as this one or this one. Project Server runs inside Sharepoint, you create a new web app for it and you have Sharepoint facilities available. I'm not a Project or Project Server user so I can't comment on the comparative functionality, but I would hope that much of the work could be done in the Sharepoint interface.

You know, of course, that MS Project Server has now been shoe-horned into is now an add-in to Sharepoint, right? Is that what you are using?

Good deal!! I like it when stuff works. :-)

I like the software as well and we bought a license. We have a customer with a live server whose permissions are... unusual... and we are using it to clean that up, plus the places where dfs copied the bad stuff to, and where robocopy copied the bad stiff to... very useful.

Maybe there is a permissions thing that is preventing you from seeing it? Try this - download SetACL Studio (which has a 30 day free trial) and navigate to the folder and see exactly what's there. This is useful software - it builds its display "from the dark side" tongue meaning that it doesn't ask for Windows's interpretation of what's on disk. You can see what is there even if you don't have rights to it. (The command line version is free and scriptable, but it's easier to use the GUI.)

Assuming something there is honked, change the owner and hit save, then change permissions and hit save, then see what you can do.

6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Processes and/or folders to exclude from malware scanners for Exchange email on: May 22, 2015, 06:58:21 PM
Basically - what Stoic said, with caveats.

If you're going to run A/V on Exchange you should exclude the items I listed above so you don't honk your Exchange. The reason you might run it would be to stop some infected box from hitting some vector that your server's attack surface allows, or to satisfy some regulatory or company requirement checkbox. But A/V on the Exchange server isn't going to check inside the emails.

The Exchange server isn't going to open an infected email or follow a link anywhere. Users do that. Whatever you have on the users' boxes should handle that, or better, you should have a filter ahead of Exchange, like Stoic said, that WILL check the emails. Even something like GFI MailEssentials isn't that dear, especially when you think about how much your recent experience cost to recover from.

Here are the relevant sections I set up for our Exchange environment. First section for file paths, next is extensions, then processes. Adjust as needed for your environment. Pardon the wrappings, this is for MS System Center Endpoint Protection. (Every bit as good as MSE, mmhm.)

I think most of the copy/sync utilities I have seen need one consistent criterion for filtering selections. That said, it would be fairly straightforward to write in a scripting language [fill in your favorite here, my choice would be Rexx]. If I can scare up some time over the next week or two I'll have a go at it (although someone may beat me to it).

If it were free... then that would be a different story.

$419 seems excessive when a RapidSSL cert through Servertastic is $15.95. (And I am sure there are less expensive alternatives, but we have used these for years. Actually we buy a block at a time as a "reseller" and that drops the price down to about $10/year.)

12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Visualize pseudo code via flowcharts? on: May 14, 2015, 05:53:08 AM
Pencil and Dia come to mind as Visio alternatives. I played a little with both, they seemed reasonable; some types of operations seemed to be easier in one, some in the other. Links should be easy to find. There was another alternative mentioned in a thread here a year or two ago, don't recall it offhand.

Actually I was using SpeQ for awhile on an old machine. It does all the normal stuff, calculations, plotting, etc but you type in the functions instead of clicking buttons. You can change a number up in the tape (or "sheet") and hit Enter to recalculate just that answer, or hit F5 to recalculate the whole sheet. Portable, or you can install it if you want a program item.

Ever since I had to buy my daughter a TI 84+ CSE for school, I have been using Wabbitemu when I need [her to use] a calculator. cheesy  (No downloaded TI ROM required, and there's an Android version too!)

And since Lauren has... err... misplaced her calculator, she is now using Wabbitemu on her laptop as well when she has that sort of assignment...

but it's also uniquely "compelling" in terms of scratching a primal itch in the way other exercises don't seem to do.

I agree - it seems a lot more "pure" than a lot of other sports. I did track, diving, and cross country in school, really enjoyed the cross country and tolerated the others! It was always a good mechanism for me to just "go", kindof back to basics.

I'd like to do more, but my ankles and knees don't like it much... but I think I need to work at it more before i hit 60 later this year. Still, I manage to do a good mud run every year with my 7-year-old. (He "accidentally" ran it with me the first time when he was 5... my wife was late for the handoff!  cheesy)
