I think in most cases, "Endpoint" is synonymous with "Individual monetary stream to be exploited".

LOL  :Thmbsup:

It was one of those 'we got to talking' type situations while my bike was on the Dyno last Saturday. He had wanted to start selling parts online a few years back, but got hooked up with some company that was soaking him for 2k a month … yet somehow not actually producing anything useful.

He has a domain name - sort of... - we still have to play the 'who really owns the domain name' game with the (GoDaddy) registrar. But once that is sorted, I'm planning on aiming him at an eBay store that traffic can be directed to through a cheap as possible his-domain-name page. That should cut down on the moving parts as much as possible for him, as I do not want to have to end up maintaining the page/site/wtf ever this turns into. Since the last web project I got roped into turned in such an epic train wreck, that I may never to do any of it ever again.

I had already considered wix, but wanted to hear from a trustworthy bunch about how truly recommended it really was before sending him that way. Alternatively - assuming we can regain control of the account - since it's already apparently a full package GoDaddy show...we could just leave it there. I just hate to because their name, image, and advertisements irk me to no end..

I've got a friend with a motorcycle shop that wants a basic web page, that will not be high traffic. Are there any free web site hosting option left these days that are at leased half-added reputable/reliable?

Really like the whois tool. I've been using the SoftGears whois CLI tool for close to 20 years now. Which is kinda the problem, being almost 20 years old in can glitch a bit at times.

Is there any chance of getting your whois as a stand alone CLI utility? If you don't have time to do it, and are willing to share the code for that function, I can work with that also if need be.

If I add a command line options to cStatus ex: cStatus /t:whois and it opens the Whois tool, is this ok to you? (you could create a .cmd file and just open the .cmd)

Unfortunately, I'm looking for something that is strictly CLI that I can drop inside the %PATH% environment variable on our Exchange server etc. I frequently run into situations where I have to do troubleshooting, and I like to keep it straight CLI for speed and simplicity.

So if somebody is flooding the target with whatever, I can do a whois -r to see what the range of their providers addresses are, so I can quickly block the entire range - at the router/edge level - to keep them from jumping addresses and continuing the attack.

You gotta move fast for that kind of "game play", and a GUI just ain't fast enough...  :D


But I do love the program for the slower paced stuff, it's great for doing a LAN map to see what is where when surveying a network.

Will May 2020 be fixed before the Fall 2020 update or will the embarassment prevent that?

It's just trying to keep up with the year 2020 total disaster theme...

For a quick-N-dirty option:

ROBOCOPY:
    Mirror source to target with source security permissions intact:
       C:\> robocopy [source] [target] /MIR /SEC /SECFIX /r:1 /w:1
   Create a log file of screen output:
      Add  /log:filename.txt /tee  to above command string.
Notes on switch options:
The /tee switch gives you console output also – otherwise it’s hours of suspenseful cursor blinking.
/R:x   Sets number of retries per file – default is 1,000,000 – Yeah… WTF?!?
/W:x   Sets number of seconds to wait between retries – default is 30 seconds – Zoiks!
/MIR   Mirrors source files/folders to target file system – However, it will also delete files/folders not on the source list, and skip files that kinda match existing files in the target location.
So if you’re restoring a burnt backup of the System or Boot partition, format it first… Then start the mirroring process. This also eliminates issues with the NTFS default System Information folder.



Ended up using this not too long ago during a ransomware recovery, that required a forced recovery from damaged backups.

It was a monolithic cluster :D ...But I got all of the clients data back minus only about 2 days of work.

(somebody opened an attachment..).

The ransomware had - somehow - managed to delete 3 years of versioned historical backups in the cloud, corrupt the local copy, and decimate the entire network … In less than an hour.

Yeah...that one.

Zoiks! What a  :D ing mess..

This sounds about right to me:

Well I gotta say one thing if favor of Corona...It's made service at Staples freaking Awesome!! Usually you have to track one of these clown down like you're hunting for Bigfoot. But now you can't get 4 steps into the store before being accosted by someone wanting to help you find what your looking for (and leave..). It's just like the - years ago level - service they should of had in they $&^%# first place.

I'm loving it; need a mouse; back in 5 - 48 minutes? ...I made it in-and-out in 2 … Awesome!

 :D

Shit … I thought CST was 2 hours off my time, lookz like I'm an hour late.

Crap!!!

14
Wait, what..? Did I miss it???

Shit!

Follow up thought: More folks might be able to join in if you kept the window open a bit (like 30 minutes) longer so they could pop in for the duration of their comfort level...

Savvy?

16
Can we lighten up on the short and tight window thing?? Mayhaps if the "carrot" dangles a bit...more folks can/will make it in..

I'm working on "angling it in" (schedule wise), but wife stuff/dinner is/can/will make it hard to hit.

I'd be game, if I can remember to do it.

Now the conditions:   I need it to be something where I could lock the folders on my system and post them for download on a website by a group of people.  The group would be downloading several normal folders of files as well but a few of them would be marked as needing a password and only a few of the group would know that password.

Why not just put them in a passworded zip? That would make their downloading of the folders easier as well.

Trick is you gotta remember to lick both sides of the memory module before snapping it into the motherboard, otherwise the current flow won't be fully primed and the buss width will be cut in half..
So that's what I need to do now to stave off the boredom :-\ :P


Dark humor, sarcasm, and a staunch refusal to take myself seriously have always helped me get through anything. So if my antics can make at least one person smile, then the world can be just a tad bit brighter at least for them … And I'm good with that.

@Wraith808: Yeah, maybe just a touch..  :D

...At least that's what I usually tell the new guys in IT to see if they're safe with hand tools - nobody has failed yet - but we had one that thought about it way to hard ... Yikes!.

I tried ZellePay with my daughter, and there are limits imposed by each bank being transferred from/to that aren't apparent.  We spent a couple of days trying to figure out what was wrong before seeing that they had a ridiculous limit on what could be transferred.

Interesting... We haven't had occasion to transfer anything over $1,000, but we have gotten close without any issues. However it most likely varies from bank to bank as to if/when they decide to clench up and whinge..

22
My brother is an OTR truck driver, and is out of state for months at a time. He recently turned us onto ZellePay which is a really nice fee free service for sending money anywhere fast. He can drop money directly into our account from out on the road with a few clicks, and it's there in seconds.

Might be worth considering.

Thanks guys, I think I have a plan now.

PS. WTF do they want a fancy font for?  It's supposed to be serious not an invitation.

Best guess is if I could "understand" the answer, I wouldn't be qualified for the job I'm in...  :D

5 Blatantly obvious tips for preventing Corona:
Try washing your hands with actual soap at least once a day - Seriously why the hell do we have to tell people this...wasn't that their mother's job??
Don't drink water from the toilet - Sure the dog does it, but they haven't been subjected to 6 generations of snowflake poisonings...
Don't kiss random strangers - Yeah I know that kind of thing was popular back in the 60's and 70's … But now it's god damn felony.
Never invoke the 5 second rule in a sewage treatment facility - FFS don't make me explain this one!!
Don't share needles with anybody that has a runny nose - See note on rule 4

 :D
