  8. Network Monitor?

    So we have a odd problem at a client where the network to some PC just disconnects from time to time. Timing is random as far as we can see and inconsistent. We ran a stupid ping test and out of 15000 pings less than 0.01% didn't go through but the RDP connections dropped multiple times in that time. We have replaced the wireless access point, the switch that access point connects to, the switch in the server room that switch connects to, tried different network card on server, tried putting wireless pc on cable the only thing we have not done is replace the main up-link between the two switches (but that is going to be a bitch to do so we would like that to be a last resort. We did put a cable tester on the cable and it tested fine. Is there any tools, software, ideas you guys have as to how we can determine where the drops occur? Cause i'm fresh out of ideas. We have made sure the server is completely up to date with updates from MS, all drivers are updated. We even brought the server to the office at one point and at our offices we didn't have any issues. After that we reset the network setting, did a ipstack reset, etc.Sometime after that the problem just stopped nobody complained about dropped connections anymore and all of a sudden this week it seems to be slowly starting again. Al the PC's run avg and are scanned daily (company has a meeting for all employees daily and during that time we run a avg scan on all pc's, servers are scanned at night) all scan reports are clean. Thanx for the TIme

    Cool to see this still being updated, thanks aCe !
  10. Two factor authentication

    A new feature of the board software, with the last update that I did, includes two factor authentication. Should you wish to switch it on you can do so via your account settings (drop down menu at the top right). Clicking this link might work as well, http://www.systemshock.co.za/forums/settings/account-security/

  13. Software Development Tools?

    Don't i know it, but at least have to prove i've given it a go or did the research and can say i'm not up to the task. Yea dreamweaver was just a mention of what i worked with way back when i did a few websites for people through the company i worked for then, and then i only did the back end someone else did the css and looks. I spoke to a acquaintance about this and the conversation pretty much went Me: Explains idea Acquaintance: and you said it's been how long since you worked with dev tools Me: 6Years plus at least Acquaintance:Dude ask someone else to do it cause time it will take you to learn tools, code apps, fix bugs, etc will cost you more than just paying someone that can do it for you and do it right the 1st time. instead of you doing it and then having someone redo / fix it if you can't do / fix it. Cost would be around R70k-R90k if he did it Me: Yes but i at least have to try. Acquaintance: Ok then i would say if you want a app code in C# in VS and use something like Cordova and or Phonegap to convert to other platforms. But you will need web-api's etc. Or recommended option was create a website and then use something like Twitter bootstrap to make it work on any screen size and Cordova (iirc) to wrap it that it looks like a app or it could be Angular. So i reported my findings to the boss and he said yea i figured it would cost around that. I'll get back to you... Still haven't heard a thing. So i will see...

    To be honest, it sounds like you're in a bit over your head. Ditch the idea of dreamweaver. C++ ... yeah, stay away from that one as well. It has it's place, but not for what you want to do. JavaScript is quite different from your OO languages like Java and C#, but is something which you will learn to at least passably use for web dev. If you want to go the web route, there are so many options. I think the simplest, all in one thing you can do is probably MS MVC. Last time I looked into it, it had a pretty decent tutorial to build an end to end app. Other options will typically focus on one area, for example Angular (a JS library) and it's tutorials are purely focused on the client side, but you can use it in conjunction with technologies like MVC. There are so many alternatives to Angular, and the list ( and rankings) changes regularly. Look into bootstrap as well to get a pretty decent UI done relatively easily: http://getbootstrap.com/

  16. Superhero T-shirts in CPT

    Nickt, I know this post was made so long ago, but is there any chance you still know where you had the superhero t's made? Do you perhaps have contact details? I really need some superhero t's - for a wedding!!!
  17. Software Development Tools?

    Thanx for the reply i'll look into Xamarin. I'm leaning more and more towards making "the app" web based and just wrapping it on the mobile devices. Question then comes in what is the web languages lately? I still worked with Dreamweaver, PHP (very little). I found Qt Open Source also looks like a very strong tool only catch is c++ is the main coding language and i haven't done c++ since 2003(ish) so going to be a very steep learning curve. I've called in assistance from a wayward family member that does this stuff daily so i'll give feedback on what his view is on this, but it's going to be more a matter of put me on the road and say drive that way instead of point me in the direction of the road and tell me to figure out witch way to go when i get there...

  19. Software updated

    I know what you mean FB is really starting to grind my gears with all the adds and "recommended" feeds it's popping up and in the mean time it's not even giving me all the feeds i currently have. So no idea how much less i'll see if i add more. Not having inet at home is making searching for and post new content a bit of a pain.
  20. Software updated

    Still around, but the place got awfully quiet of late, which is a pity as I do not frequent social media due to the proliferation of ads and meaningful / original content.
  21. Software Development Tools?

    Xamarin isnt a bad choice to use as it allows people with existing coding skills of targeting mutiple non-native platforms. Just keep in mind in order to deploy to iOS you will need a physical Mac / Apple device and in addition to that also keep in mind that in order to get your apps in the app stores you will have some hoops to jump. The VS Community Edition is also not a bad choice as it does help with coding the middleware in a variety of different flavors, that is in addition to the ability to do the web stuff too (I have not personally used the community edition, I use a different version). Language recommendation would be to stick to C# as this is close enough to the java-based languages in syntax, allowing you to focus on learning the stack that you are working with instead of treading around "hello world" examples.
