Stop getting pwned!

I've encountered many scenarios where people complain x has been "hacked" or y has been stolen or maybe you've seen a few emails in your junk items which alludes to someone spying on you and they have something on you and want you to pay a ransom to delete this "evidence". Firstly change your passwords, secondly don't pay... online security is something that should be taken very seriously as we progress through this digital age. There are some basic steps that you can take to ensure your data is safe online, and as…continue reading →

BSOD issue with ESET and Windows 10 v1903: DO NOT UPDATE

Earlier today ESET became aware of a technical problem between our product ESET Endpoint Encryption and the latest Windows 10 system upgrade – build 1903. The issue is triggered when upgrading a Full Disk Encrypted Windows 10 system (encrypted by ESET Endpoint Encryption) to the 1903 feature update. Installing the update can cause the system to crash (blue screen) when booting. This problem has the potential to cause business disruption and they advise customers using ESET Endpoint Encryption and Windows 10 not to upgrade to the new Windows build at this time. In…continue reading →

Remote audio working but, not working?

More often than not I will remotely access my desktop machine to work and browse on. Occasionally I've noticed that remote audio will become non-existent unless it's a system sound such as testing the audio or adjusting the volume. Thus trying to review a video or play music becomes a pointless exercise as no audio is sent to the remote machine. Now I'm fairly sure a reboot of the host machine will rectify this but if you're lazy like me and can't be bothered to close the current apps you are working on…continue reading →

Jeez is suck at this…

Recently I've seen my day job/personal life and my own company starting to overlap not in the sense that I'm working on my own stuff in working hours. But that there are some recurring topics I'm having to deal with which has spurred me into "producing" (using that term very lightly as I'm by no means any good at sticking together quality content), some of my own tutorial documents/videos which I'll basically be trying to tie together with this blog. Currently I'm in the process or recording and editing 6 videos which I…continue reading →

Make your bed.

If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that the little things in life matter. If you can’t do the little things right, you’ll…continue reading →

Odds-on

Anyone who knows me knows I like to have little bets every now and then. Generally I go for a mad half timer or generally the outlandish odds I think if I started to focus and try analyse on a regular basis I'd be out right broke as I'm not overly successful but have had a few wins obviously otherwise I wouldn't do it. So as my first post in this category I'm going to show you an example of the kind of mental outcomes I bet on.   Tomorrows bet; A 20…continue reading →

Opening post…

I've owned this domain for some time now (Registered: 25th of February 2010) with the initial idea of blogging about gaming as the URL represents a general alias I use and used to sit within my Xbox Live profile (It may still be there can't say I've ventured to look). However I never really did a great deal with it over all and kept having thoughts to return to it but never really found the time, I'm by no means a writer, my grammar and punctuation sucks but to fill a little time…continue reading →
