If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

comment Is it possible to setup a KVM switch to support both DVI and VGA video sources?
You can use two kvms and a single monitor that has both dvi and vga inputs...try to get one where switching inputs takes a single button press. Not perfect, but at least only requires one monitor.

comment How do I restrict a removable NTFS drive to domain access only?
@davidthielen even the boot partition is accessible. Once connected as a secondary drive to the thief's own computer, they can access everything on the drive. Encryption ensures that even though they can read the drive, they can't see the real, original data.

comment Why is Wireshark not capturing certain POST requests?
@terokilkanen that or add the ca cert your proxy is signing the fake certs with to your trusted ca list.

comment Why is Wireshark not capturing certain POST requests?
@TeroKilkanen exactly. If you don't have that, you use a MitM proxy - so the connection goes "Your server" -https-> "Proxy" -different_https-> "Their server". The proxy is the one who is really talking to the remote server, so it can see the unencrypted data.

comment Which domain should have 'abuse' or 'postmaster' or “fbl” email accounts?
If you are actually hosting the email for these domains (client1domain.com's MX record points to a server you control) then you can do what you want with postmaster@. But if you don't control the domain, and just let people use it as an reply to address, you can't.

comment Which domain should have 'abuse' or 'postmaster' or “fbl” email accounts?
No, you certainly can't check their email. That's the problem with letting them use a domain you don't control. Some will send it to the domain's admin, some to the actual mail server's admin.

I find backupninja (labs.riseup.net/code/projects/backupninja) to work quite well.

comment Backup without the help of softwares
Your question is nonsensical. All operations on a computer use "softwares". Tar is software. Gzip is software. All of linux is a collection of software. Without software your computer is primarily useful as a paperweight.

comment Determine if IPs are backed by VPS
Why do you need to know? What you ask probably isn't possible. But if we know why you want to know that we may come up with alternatives.

comment There is nohup, is there a nousr1 command?
The better question might be what is sending it the usr1 signal in the first place? If nothing is, the exit message may simply be misleading.

comment How to ensure Netgear GS724TP is not blocking Dropbox Lan Sync - port 17500
Managed switches don't block things unless you configure them to - so if you DIDN'T setup any sort of filtering on the switch, then that's not the issue.

comment USB Thumb Drive not recognized in Hyper-V Manager
This is a good way to use your USB drive, but it is NOT a solution for installing the OS, which is what the question asks about. You can't RDP to a HyperV VM that has no OS installed on it yet...

comment Cisco switch, white residue in switch ports
Assuming there is no warranty on these switches I would pop the case off and see what it looks like inside.
