Adding emails into SharePoint Online Discussion Boards

My company has been using SharePoint Server for a few years now. Everyone was comfortable with it and following a set of processes. We decided to migrate to the cloud to get the server maintenance off our back and to take advantage of the many features available in SPO.

One of our departments has been using Discussion Boards and forwarding emails into SharePoint 2013 to archive emails, be able to “process” and count them and to easily access them if ever needed. After the migration, we found out you can no longer email things into lists – and boy was my world turned upside down when this was noticed.

SharePoint: Error When adding Apps

Everything is fine, but we had a small problem getting your license. Please go back to the SharePoint Store to get this app again and you won't be charged for it.

I was working in SharePoint, and I kept getting the same error every time I tried to add an app on our on-premises SharePoint 2013. I thought it may have been something with our server, so I tried it on my SharePoint Online account too and got the same error:

Review: GPTOYS H2O Aviax 2.4GHz 4CH RC Quadcopter Drone

GPTOYS H2O Aviax 2.4GHz 4CH RC Quadcopter with Waterproof 3D Eversion 6 Axis Gyro Headless Mode LCD Remote Controller,Silver

I have had so much fun with this drone! I have tried a few different helicopters and drones from Walmart, and they never seem to fly right – they would always shoot to the left or right and had no adjustments. This drone can be easily adjusted to make up for any problems the drone may have to make it hover properly. After just a day of flying it, I was able to figure it out, fly it where I wanted to, land it where I wanted to, and do different tricks with it. Even my wife was able to pick it up for the first time and fly it around for a few minutes without crashing it! Continue reading “Review: GPTOYS H2O Aviax 2.4GHz 4CH RC Quadcopter Drone”

Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter Radio Adapter Car Kit with Dual USB Port Remote Control

Product review for iClever Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter Radio Adapter Car Kit with Dual USB Port Remote Controller

I only have positive things to say about this device. I was needing something that I could listen to training material off of my phone into my older car radio. However, I did not want a bunch of wires everywhere where it takes me two minutes to get everything hooked up. Instead, I simply set it up the first time, and my phone automatically connects to my car radio as soon as I get near it. All I have to do then is press play on my phone.

Change Default SSH Port Number

SSH Command line

By default, SSH runs on port 22, and most scripts attack that port by brute force to attempt to gain access to your server. One way to stop script kiddies from brute forcing your SSH server so often is by changing the default port that OpenSSH uses. You must remember this port number and change all your connections that use SSH to the new port number. Continue reading “Change Default SSH Port Number”

Automatically backup pictures on Android With OneDrive

OneDrive Logo

The past few days I have been getting calls regarding people’s phones not working right. The number one worry – I need my pictures. The way a phone’s internal storage works, if the phone will not come on, there is not much of a way to recover your pictures if they are not on an SD Card. Which leaves the question of how do I keep from loosing my pictures if my phone quits working? The answer – cloud storage. Continue reading “Automatically backup pictures on Android With OneDrive”

Disable UAC Prompts

Back when Windows Vista came out, Microsoft introduced User Account Control (or UAC). UAC is Microsoft’s response to Ubuntu’s sudo command, which must be run to run a command as admin. It has since then had many iterations and updates, and despite all the security positives of having it turned on, some people choose to turn it off. If you are wondering how to turn it off, then follow the steps below. These steps will work for Window Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Continue reading “Disable UAC Prompts”

Disable The Clutter Folder

Microsoft decided it would be a good idea to start moving some of your mail to a separate folder. Do you know how the announced it? They put an email in the clutter folder saying “Welcome To Clutter”. They put it in a folder that you never seen before? Yeah, who is going to see that? Here is how you disable it!
