I have been using this plugin to https://wordpress.org/plugins/pastacode/

highlight some of my programming. I write a bit in Powershell however this is not a supported markup. This is what to add to your functions file of your theme to add another library

/** pastcode plugin */
add_filter( 'pastacode_langs', '_pastacode_langs' );
function _pastacode_langs( $langs ) {
	$langs['powershell'] = 'Powershell';
	return $langs;
}

add_filter( 'pastacode_tinymcevars', '_pastacode_tinymcevars' );
function _pastacode_tinymcevars( $pvars ) {
	$pvars['scripts']['powershell']=get_template_directory_uri().'/js/powershell.js';
	$array=array(
			'libs'      => array('powershell'),
			'mode'      => 'application/x-powershell',
			);

	$pvars['language_mode']['powershell']=$array;
	return $pvars;
}

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mytheme_scripts');

function mytheme_scripts() {
  wp_dequeue_script( 'prismjs' );
  wp_deregister_script( 'prismjs' );
  wp_enqueue_script( 'prismjs',  get_template_directory_uri().'/js/prism.js', false,PASTACODE_VERSION, true );
} 

 

You will also need to create a js folder and upload the new .js library from https://codemirror.net/mode/ and prism.js

Recently I got hold of a Fortinet Lab FG-100D. The Fan in this unit is around 50db and not suitable for a lounge. The device is not licensed and out of support so I could ‘tweak’ it!

The quietest 4-Pin ( sending feedback back to to the Fortinet of fan speed so it can adjust ) 40mmx 20mm fan I could find was a NF-A4x20 with 15db of noise , however much-reduced airflow!

The NF-A4x20 comes with a different fan plug then the Fortinet Socket. The connect should match the other size , however a little pressure helps the fortinet socket accept this! 

The good thing about this fan is it also comes with a LNA ( Low noise adapter ) a cable that drops down the (voltage) speed of the fan. The 100D also has two power fan points. I was able to put the LNA on the original fan, then readjust the fans like below. I ran both for a week however sometimes the old fan would whir up, so I ended up disconnecting the original and left the NF-A4x20 and it has been stable!

Work out how much Space

work out bandwidth

  1. It is not a good idea to target the primary and backup copy job to the same repository as this negates the 321 rule and if an issue was to occur on that repository the primary and secondary copies of data would be lost.
  2. Instead it would be better to use a primary repository configured with ReFS and then have a secondary location configured with Windows Deduplication (Compression should be off instead of auto).
  3. It is not generally considered a good idea to have deduplication for the primary backup chain as this effects performance and increases RTPOs.
  4. The actual space savings depend on the change rate of the source data and the types of chains that are used on the ReFS repository. Also ReFS savings don’t show when viewed through file explorer. To learn more about checking the files savings please take a look at these links;

https://www.virtualtothecore.com/how-much-space-am-i-saving-thanks-to-refs-blockclone/

http://dewin.me/refs/

  1. Some limitation worth mentioning are Windows deduplication is for 4TB files so larger files will not be completely deduped. Also GFS doesn’t show ReFS savings until the point is synthesized as up to this point it will only shows as an incremental and changed blocked cannot be reused by ReFS pointers.

I needed to allows N-able Take Control 

The guide online showed that we had to whitelist  *.mspa.n-able.com , however the firewall could not whitelist Wildcard address. The static address’ are

  • sydgw-mct04.mspa.n-able.com
  • sydgw-mct05.mspa.n-able.com

Sender Rewriting Scheme (SRS) functionality was added to Office 365 ( and other platforms ) to resolve a problem in which autoforwarding is incompatible with SPF.

SRS rewriting does not fix the issue of DMARC passing for forwarded messages. Although an SPF check will now pass by using a rewritten P1 From address, DMARC also requires an alignment check for the message to pass. For forwarded messages, DKIM always fails because the signed DKIM domain does not match the From header domain. If an original sender sets their DMARC policy to reject forwarded messages, the forwarded messages are rejected by Message Transfer Agents (MTAs) that honor DMARC policies.

 

So if you are forwarding emails , you can set SPF to Hard Fail , but DMARC you will not be able to fail due to DKIM

Had to go through this process for a customer, because their VLSC account was setup at some stage in the past using [email protected] VLSC account as a work or school account, the domain  was already registered against an unmanaged Azure AD directory, so we couldn’t set them up to use Teams. It’s a straight forward process just follow the article.

To find out if a domain is part of an unmanaged Azure AD directory, you can follow https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/powerapps-gdpr-dsr-guide-systemlogs#determining-tenant-type as specified in the article.

I recently picked up a customer with Divi WordPress Theme. I have helped them installed a new plugin however the h2 color wasn’t showing the right color defined in the plugin 

Looking at the compute of the CSS this line was causing it 

color: #5a5f72!important;

!important overules all other settings!

Turns out this was defined in the text widget of Divi that just needed changing
