The quick and dirty way to set up an NTP server on Debian Linux for your network.
This has been tested using Debian 7.0 "Wheezy".
1. Install NTP server:
apt-get install ntp
2. Edit /etc/ntp.conf: add the networks that are allowed to sync with your time server like so (Adjust parameters accordingly.):
restrict 192.168.0.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
3. Restart the NTP service:
4. Set your device/computer/server to use your NTP server
When deploying KMS on a Server 2012 R2, you may run into the error message saying nothing more but STATUS_SUCCESS.
The reason for this is that the KMS TCP Listening Port in the wizard, is by default set to 0, which is of course incorrect. Typing in the correct default value (1688) resolves the issue.
When your hyperlinks in your Outlook signature gets replaced by so-called "field codes", you may have inadvertedly pressed the magic key combo Alt+F9:
You can reverse the effect by pressing it again. This only works when the message field has focus.
There are some issues with Quake 4 on modern video cards. Even with Ultra Quality enabled, the graphics still looks awful: textures are at their lowest quality, shaders and shadows are missing, etc.
The problem can be resolved by editing q4baseQuake4Config.cfg in your game directory, and overwriting these values:
seta image_ignoreHighQuality "0" seta image_cacheMegs "512" seta image_downSize "0"
Also, for Windows 8 and 8.1, you may have to enable compatibility mode on the Quake4.exe and enable Disable display scaling on high DPI settings. This ensures the game display fits your monitor properly.
Found this online: ClickYes software. Don't install!
It's supposed to automatically click Yes when a program uses Outlook to send e-mail. In my opinion, it's a very useless piece of software as one could simply disable the prompt in Outlook, or better, install a proper antivirus.
If you're running Internet Explorer 10 or later, you may get this error when trying to log on to a computer using RDP through Remote Web Workplace:
You can resolve the issue by adding RWW to the Compatibility View list in Internet Explorer.
You can add RDS servers to the list of computers in Remote Web Workplace, making them available to anyone with access to RWW. The process is simple, requires no reboot and is immediately active.
Note that this will only work if your RDS server is inside the SBSServers OU or a sub-OU (i.e. you're allowed to create other OU's inside the SBSServers OU).
To get this card running on Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2, you need this driver:
Newer versions no longer seem to support this card.
Run this command in an elevated Powershell to enable remote WMI access:
Enable-NetFirewallRule -Name WMI-RPCSS-In-TCP,WMI-WINMGMT-In-TCP,WMI-WINMGMT-Out-TCP,WMI-ASYNC-In-TCP
A handy tool to edit file associations, default program handlers, and autoplay handlers:
And best of all, it's free!
The Debugging tools for Windows (a.k.a. Windbg) for Windows 8.1 can still be downloaded separately. Although it's now part of the Windows Driver Kit (WDK), you can still download the Windows 8.1 SDK Installer and select only the debugging tools. It's an about 180MB download (without the symbols).
