Completely Reinstall Final Cut In OS X

I’ve seen a few instances where an upgrade caused Final Cut to run kinda’ strangely. To resolve, I’ve just been doing a quick reinstall of Final Cut. To do so:

  • First move the Final Cut application to the trash (it’s in the /Applications folder).
  • From your home folder, go to ~/Library/Application Support and move the Final Cut folder in there into the trash.
  • From Library/Preferences in your home folder, put com.apple.FinalCut.plist, com.apple.FinalCut.LSSharedFileList and com.apple.FinalCut.UserDestinations.plist in the trash.
  • Finally, trash com.apple.FinalCut directory from ~/Library/Caches.

Once done, go back to the Mac App Store and reinstall Final Cut and open it. Those folders you just tossed out will get re-created. Your toolbars and other customizations are likely to be gone, so you’ll have to spend a few minutes getting your workspace back to the way you had it, but if Final Cut was acting oddly it should be back to... | Read more »

Queen’s journey to a cloud-connected campus with O...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Bo Wandshneider, CIO and associate vice principal at Queen’s University. 
My team at IT Services at Queen’s University started our journey to the cloud in 2013 when we migrated all undergraduate students to Microsoft Exchange Online. I’m often asked how we fostered agreement among the faculty and other campus constituents to take this step. Exchange Online is the best place to begin because the business case for retiring on-premises email solutions is clear: you save money on infrastructure and IT staff are freed to work on projects that add value to the academic community.
These projects include introducing all the other great services you get with Office 365—provisioning unlimited online storage for everyone, and introducing video conferencing, collaborative team sites and social networking. All these capabilities add a... | Read more »

Enhanced email protection with DKIM and DMARC in O...

Spoofing is a common challenge that enterprises face in today’s world, which can lead to increased spam and more intensified phishing campaigns. In order to reduce spoofing and provide a safer client experience, Office 365 now supports inbound validation of DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) over IPv4, and Domain-based Messaging and Reporting Compliance (DMARC). Both of these technologies check for trusted authenticated senders and help identify untrusted ones that that fail authentication. Exchange Online Protection (EOP), which filters every single mailbox on Office 365, had previously supported Inbound DKIM for IPV6. With these added functionalities feature, Office 365 users can expect better brand protection and an even safer experience.
Let’s take a closer look at these new service features.

Xbox and Power Map team up to analyze game data

In the spring of 2014, the Xbox team asked the Excel Power Map team to help them analyze data collected from the instrumentation of various games to improve performance and the gamers’ experience. We got on a conference call with them; they showed us some of their data and some very basic graphs that they currently used. While the Xbox team was describing their problem, the first thing that crossed my mind was, “Wow, we get to play Xbox games during work hours.” Then, I realized this matched many other business and sports scenarios we had been dreaming up and was the perfect opportunity to use real data with real players to do real analysis and tackle something super challenging, ambiguous…perhaps, impossible.
It was the kind of challenge that the Power Map team lives for. So, we went to work.
After our first initial conversation we knew that teams working on games need to visualize different types of data on top of their game environment and look for patterns... | Read more »

Linux and Free Memory Space

The free command in Linux is used to show memory utilization. When run without any options, you can see the used and available space of swap and physical memory. By default, the option is displayed in kilobytes but when run with a -b option it is shown in bytes or -m will show in megabytes or -g in gigabytes or -t in terabytes. So to see the free space in bytes run the following:
free -b
The -o option shows the output adjusted for the buffer. The -t option also adds a total column as well as a line for total that shows swap and physical, combined. The -s will update the output and is followed by a number of seconds. To see the number of times it happened, use the -c option. So to see the output every 60 seconds:
free -cs 60
The low and high stats are shown using the -l option:
free -l
As with many commands, you can see the version of the command using the -V option:
free -V
Finally, use the –help option to see the available options,... | Read more »

Our journey with OneNote

Today’s post was written Michael Smith and Palie Cantu of the Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart.
When the Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart began a 1:1 program back in 1996, the earliest educational technology beneficiaries were those mainly integrating word processing and Internet access into their curriculum, such as English and Social Studies. The technology was not quite as user-friendly to the Science, Math and other less keyboard-friendly disciplines. When we moved to tablet PC devices in 2003, we discovered digital inking and soon a whole new world of educational technology integration opened for all curricula.
With the new tablet PCs, we explored a third-party digital inking solution, but quickly moved to Windows Journal for ease of use and accessibility. The novelty of... | Read more »

36 Tips For Companies Using Twitter

This is just my opinion, but…

  1. There are no good rules/tips for Twitter, so pretend you never read this.
  2. Be appreciative!
  3. Don’t be a dirtbag or people will unfollow you and block you.
  4. Not everything you try will work. Sometimes it’s because it’s not good and other times it’s because it’s not the right time. But assume most things will fail, being prepared for success.
  5. Be positive. Leave being negative to the people that think they’re smarter than everyone else.
  6. If you ask me to follow you on twitter, I won’t.
  7. Don’t follow and then unfollow people to get new followers (see #1).
  8. Don’t buy Followers. Best case, they will unfollow you and your investment will have been in vain. Worst case, see #1.
  9. Keep in mind that the lists you create in Twitter show up in the URLs of other people’s web logs if you click on those links from the Twitter web page.
  10. Don’t just post links; add something to the... | Read more »

A month ago, we asked the Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Experts around the world to “Sway your OneNote love.” The MIE Experts were asked to use Sway to bring together their ideas and multimedia that answered one of the following questions:

  1. What do you love about OneNote?
  2. How do you use OneNote to inspire learning?
  3. How do you collaborate with others using OneNote? (MIE Experts, Teachers community, Students)

The OneNote and Sway teams were amazed at the response rate (almost 100 Sways were submitted), variety and clear innovation in use of OneNote in the classroom and Sway to present it. Since Sway is “born on the web” and made to be embeddable, we will let the winners speak for themselves.

As developers of OneNote and the OneNote Class Notebook Creator, we realize that creating exciting products is only the first step towards to making a difference in education. The next steps are to actively train educators on how they can use OneNote in ways that are immediately relevant to their daily school lives and give them the content that serves as a basis for further curriculum generation. The goal behind OneNoteforTeachers.com, a new site developed exclusively for educators is to take a completely new OneNote user and magically turn them into a “OneNote Ninja” in about an hour without any cost to them or their school. Once a teacher masters the OneNote Ninja arts, adding the Bing in the Classroom lesson plans provides a new level of expertise that even Jackie Chan would envy.
