Please be extremely wary of the company https://www.raidmart.com/
My experience with them has been that I ordered a item from them, the money was taken immediately. Emails were sent confirming the item had been dispatched with a tracking link.
And that is ALL that ever happened. The item never arrived. The tracking link remains with the status “We’ve accepted your order, and we’re getting it ready. Come back to this page for updates on your shipment status.”
I’ve contacted the company numerous times, with no reply. I’ve followed their refund procedure, with no reply.
From my experience I believe this site is a scam.

After a phone system upgrade we were unable to get the speaking clock within the office, which started off a conversation about how much it costs to call, presently 50p per call in the UK.
A little conversation and it seemed like it would be fairly easy to knock up a system that provided the same service.
So with about 15 minutes I did 😀 https://github.com/mikedixson/PSpeakingClock/
Over the summer I took part in a song writing game/mission with other songwriters on the web and one of the resultant songs that came out of the exercise was Bordering on Obsession, a song about lost loves, aspirations and self examination.
In the wasteland that is the gameified app dating scene obsessing over looks, both your own and other peoples, and casually swiping your way thru an endless sea of fish you’ll never catch is all the more a horrid obsession fueling activity.

This is a super succinct method of finding a mac address on a Window s DHCP server:
Get-DhcpServerv4Scope | Get-DhcpServerv4Lease -EA SilentlyContinue -ClientId xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx
When moving from one ADFS server to another I imported a full certificate chain and private key into Machine certs on the new Windows 2016.
The certificate displayed fine and chain is complete.
However viewing the certificate properties via ADFS the certificate information gives the error “Windows does not have enough information to verify the certificate” Solution
Move the intermediate certificate to the Intermediate Certificate Authorities > Certificates store
It seems stupidly obvious in retrospect but Windows itself could view the cert fine, and the import was done via Machine Certificates so you’d think it would put things in the right place.
You think that having Skype launch minimized at start up would be an easy and well known Group Policy ADMX file or such… but no no no.
No easy life for you Mr Sysadmin.
Well for you yes, cause I’m writing how I managed to achieve it so you don’t have to bang your head against the desk too much.
Configures Skype’s Own AutoStart
This might be a bit belt and braces and the order 3 item below starts Skype4B on Windows start up already.
User Configuration Preferences Windows Settings Registry AutoOpenMainWindowOnStartUp (Order:1)
Hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER Key path Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync Value name AutoOpenMainWindowWhenStartup Value type REG_DWORD Value data 0x0 (0)
All Common option set to
User Configuration Preferences Windows Settings Registry MinimizeWindowToNotificationArea (Order: 2)
Hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER Key path Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync Value name MinimizeWindowToNotificationArea Value type REG_DWORD Value data 0x1 (1)
Start Skype with Windows
Again this is a bit belt and braces, I’d go with this option over the first as the only method of starting Skype.
Also note that lync.exe is in the path, so the value data could just be lync/lync.exe so that the officeXX in the path doesn’t matter, for a bit of future proofing.
User Configuration Preferences Windows Settings Registry Lync (Order: 3) Action: Replace
Hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER Key path Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Value name Lync Value type REG_SZ Value data %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\lync.exe
This should then be applied to the OU that the users exist in and Domain Computers be given read access.
