On April 22, 2015, a volcano in southern Chile, erupted for the first time in 4 decades. A lot of photo and video footage is available of the event, but none are so wonderful and gorgeous as the 4K timelapse, shot and released by Timestorm Films.
The high-definition footage, along with an ominous sounding soundtrack, truly is a must-see for all.
The attached VBScript allows you to set an Out-of-Office reply for another user on an Exchange 2003. You'll need the required permissions on the Exchange server to set a user's out-of-office (either Mail Recipients or User Options Management roles).
I found the script in the comments section of this Technet blog article. Special thanks go to the author (Bill Prentice) for sharing.
This script is only for Exchange 2003. Starting from 2007, the Powershell cmdlet Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration is available.
You can efficiently change the console fonts, character sets and keymaps through the following command:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
The configuration is stored in the file /etc/default/console-setup, and can be edited by hand as well.
The changes are effective for all virtual consoles after reboot. To apply the change for the current console, run:
To prevent changing the console font completely (i.e. native system/BIOS font will be used), set the font to "do not change".
The equivalent in the config file is:
You can easily convert an Exchange mailbox from one type to another through the Exchange Management Shell.
Set-Mailbox -Identity user.name -Type Regular
There are four types you can use to convert to:
The Equipment and Room types are used for reservations of meeting rooms and equipment (DLP).

When demoting a 2003 domain controller using dcpromo, you may run into the following error:
The error message is quite misleading as the real cause has got nothing to do with NETLOGON, but is in fact a DNS issue. You will most likely have the server's primary DNS pointing to itself using loopback address (127.0.0.1) or its own IP address.
You can correct the issue by having the DNS point to remaining domain controllers, and remove any DNS pointing to itself (i.e. loopback address or any other IP owned by the server being demoted).
There are two ways to see which Certificate Authority servers exist in your AD domain.
The AD group Cert Publishers contain the servers that are permitted to publish certificates to AD. As a consequence, this gruop will contain all servers that are CAs.
You can use the certutil command to view (and select from) a list of CAs in the current AD domain:
certutil -config - -ping
Note: type the command as-is, including all spaces and hyphens.
A window will appear, listing the CA name and the server it runs on.
Nice article about things you can do after a fresh install of Ubuntu on your computer:
Very useful if you don't have a whole lot of experience with linux in general, and Ubuntu in particular.
It has always been a bit tedious to manage and customize Internet Explorer through group policies, especially when your network has different versions of Windows and/or different versions of Internet Explorer.
