SPAM or SCAM? I’m the network engineer for my firm and recently, I’ve been informed that Barracuda has black listed our IP. A fairly large customer found out when he’s stopped getting our invoices! No invoices means not getting paid. NEVER A GOOD THING! Continue reading
We have an ancient Citrix Access Gateway, version: 5.0.4 .223500, 2011-12-14. Guess who gets to upgrade and make it modern! ME! WHOOHOO! :) Continue reading
Latest news!!! SHA1 is now considered insecure! Well, only theoretically insecure for the time being (as of Jan, 2016), but very soon, the keys will be broken! We actually
have had a SHA1 certificate being used by Citrix Access Gateway (version: 5.0.4 .223500, 2011-12-14). AND we were using RC4. Two issues that keep growing in importance. First problems started early 2016, when our site wouldn’t work with Chrome and kept throwing up errors in Firefox. Continue reading
My little Acura RDX 2007 kept on having this intermittent problem that was driving me nuts! Well, it first happened to my wife. Out of the blue, the lights on the dashboard came up! A LOT OF LIGHTS! Brake lights, VSA and AWD lights all came up, scaring my wife thinking that car is going to blow up. The brakes were working fine though, and she was able to drive home on the freeway without issue. After a lot of research online, I came up with a posting on Acurazine and this DIY: Continue reading
What to do with an almost 10 year old car? Most people will just sell it and upgrade but that’ll mean THOUSANDS of dollars for a new car with not that many new features. So instead, I bought a refurb Rosen unit from ebay for $210 and $20 for the backup Continue reading
I’ve always been amused by the trucks that have turn signals in their mirrors. I’m not sure if they’re a gimmick or not, but I feel that they’re super useful since cars in your blind spot who can’t see your turn signal. And because of that, this is a safety issue (that’s my excuse to delve into this project! Continue reading
Showing you what I did on a recent project with a client – moving license servers on a few hundred workstations automatically! Very useful when migrating servers or retiring servers, or even making sure workstation have a backup license server in the cloud. Using Group Policy, we make an environment variable on workstation listed on a specific OU. The environment variable will direct workstation to point the Autodesk software to point to the new server.
Since everyone loves videos (myself included), here’s another one! Autodesk AutoCAD 2014 Deployment creation & customization. No frills video that goes straight into demos, creating a deployment in a DFS path, and then installing it onto virtual machines using Virtual Box.
With the weather warming up, it’s time to get active! Made my way over to Brooklyn Boulders a few times already and if you haven’t visited before, this place is awesome! After taking the learn the ropes class and getting familiar with the system, a few of us managed to get the “red card” that’ll let us belay each other. From then on, it was straight up to the top!
Autodesk Revit Server, in it’s 3rd gen, improves upon previous versions and allows users within an organization across multiple locations to simultaneously collaborate on Revit workshared projects. I’m going to explain what’s new in Revit Server 2014 and also show you how to set it up in your office. Understand the concepts, and then get the servers ready by installing any prerequisites. It might sound obvious, but before implementing Revit Server in your office, it’s highly recommended to do some planning and draw it out logically how you want / expect it to work. You don’t want to make a bunch of Revit Servers floating around your network and cluttering your VM.
