Indivior poised for growth with Office 365

The pharmaceuticals industry is in a constant state of flux. To succeed in this dynamic atmosphere, companies like Indivior need to stay flexible so that they can fold in those new business units or quickly launch new ones, as the case may be. In December 2014, Indivior became an independent company through a demerger from its former parent company. As a result, we had to quickly stand up a brand new IT environment, separate from what we’d known, including everything from phone systems and desktop support to business applications and email.
It’s a common pitfall to worry so much about the short-term timeline that a company doesn’t plan for the future, but we didn’t make that mistake. We knew that we wanted to structure our environment to not just get us launched on time, but to put us in a position to grow quickly on a global scale.
That’s why we adopted Microsoft Office 365. After all, in the pharmaceuticals industry, document and file formats are critical because we... | Read more »

Automatically Cache Updates To Your OS X Server

A little while back, I did a little writeup on how the OS X Caching Server caches updates at http://krypted.com/mac-security/how-the-os-x-caching-server-caches-updates/. The goal was to reverse engineer parts of how it worked for a couple of different reasons. The first was to get updates for devices to cache to my caching server prior to 15 people coming in before it’s cached and having caching it down on their own.
So here’s a little script I call precache. It’s a little script that can be used to cache available Apple updates into an OS X Server that is running the Caching Service. To use, run the script followed by the name of the model. For example, for an iPad 2,1, you would use the following syntax:
sudo python precache.py iPad2,1
To eliminate beta operating systems from your precache,use the –no-beta argument:
sudo python precache.py iPad2,1 --no-beta

20 Things To Do In Austin While Attending ACES

Things to Do In Austin In May
Diverse, fun and infused with culture, Austin is the capital of Texas and home to a prosperous community and a wide variety of culture, from the world class cuisine in the many fine restaurants, the growing population of infamous tech companies, the summer festivals and creative atmosphere, to the magnificent country music in what is also referred to as the Live music capital of the world (although Nashville, Athens, and other cities might have some arguing of that point).
Here are some great things to do when you visit Austin: 

  1. Austin City Limits

I grew up seeing acts including Willie Nelson, Little Feat, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lyle Lovett, Merle Haggard, George Strait, REM, and everyone who was anyone play at Austin City Limits. The same is true today. It’s like playing at the Grand Ole Opry, but open to acts that today include the Arctic Monkeys, Lumineers,... | Read more »

Run A Caching Server On A Computer Without Ethern...

I do a lot of testing on MacBook Airs and the latest MacBooks. Neither have a built-in Ethernet port and I try not to travel with one. But, when you enable the Caching Server service in OS X on a machine without an active Ethernet connection, the AssetCache will report an error of the following:
Wireless portable computer not supported
The cause is pretty obvious, but bypassable because of how the sanity check was built. Simply run the following:
sudo serveradmin settings caching:Interface = en0
Now try again. Enjoy.
PS: Since people always jump on the article where I talk about how to do things that shouldn’t be done in production, I mostly use this for testing. Don’t do it in production… And if you enjoy being judgmental about things, please feel free to find something constructive to do with your time, like write up how to do something that everyone else can judge you harshly for…

Today’s post was written by Ron Markezich, corporate vice president for Microsoft.
It’s amazing to watch how some of the world’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies are using Microsoft Office 365 to transform their businesses. The latest example is Atkins, one of the world’s leading engineering, design and project management consultancies, which has chosen to roll out Office 365 E5 to over 18,600 employees worldwide.

Migrating Objects From Active Directory To Apple S...

Apple School Manager is a portal used to create classes, import students, manage Managed Apple IDs, and link all these things together. You can use a Student Information System (SIS) to create these classes, import students, etc. But, only if you have a SIS with an API that Apple links to. If you don’t, you’ll need to import data using csv files. And you’ll need to import four csv files: Classes, Instructors, Staff, and of course Students.
Many schools will already have this data in Active Directory or another LDAP-based solution. Here, we’ll look at getting the information out of Active Directory and into csv. The LDIFDE utility exports and imports objects from and to Active Directory using the ldif format, which is kinda’ like csv when it gets really drunk and can’t stay on one line. Luckily, ldif can’t drive. Actually, each attribute/field is on a line (which allows for arrays) and an empty line starts the next record. Which can make for a pretty messy looking file the... | Read more »

OneNote Class Notebook as an e-Portfolio

Today’s post was written by Edita Rabizaite, ESL teacher and ICT coordinator at the Kaunas Kazys Grinius Progymnasium School in Lithuania.
I have been working with kids, teachers and parents since 2012 on the concept of portfolio. A few years ago, I chose OneNote to create portfolios for my students and teachers. Back then, I was looking for a simple solution for kids and teachers to understand. OneNote, which looked familiar to teachers and students (like a digital notebook) proved to be a great tool for portfolios. It was easy for teachers and students to learn how to use. Many tools used for portfolios were technically hard for teachers to understand and for students to find all their work in one place and not scattered. OneNote helped me to create a class portfolio where all students and teachers in one class were connected in one place. It is hard to imagine it now, but in 2014, I created a folder in... | Read more »

Run a script directly from github

There are a lot of scripts stored on github. And you can run them directly by curling them into bash. To do so, you’ll need a link to the raw script (using the github page with the URL of the script brings in all the cruft, so you’ll need to find the raw text). To grab that, click on the page with the script and then right-click  on Raw, as seen here:

Then, throw out a bash command followed by < and then the URL you just copied into your clipboard in parenthesis:
