    18 Apr 2015 | 10:34 am
    Exchange Online Protection (EOP), aka Office 365, is going to be making a small change to its behavior for inbound anonymous (i.e., not sent over TLS) email sent over IPv6. Luckily, for customers with IPv6 enabled, no action is required. Currently, we require the following for senders over IPv6: The sending IPv6 address must have a PTR record. If it does not, the service will reject the message with the permanent reject error: 550 5.7.25 Service unavailable, sending IPv6 address [$SenderIPAddress] must have reverse DNS record.

    Chuck Walbourn - MSFT
    18 Apr 2015 | 9:44 am
    As you may have heard in the technical press, Microsoft is a more open-source friendly place these days, and has embraced GitHub for a number of high-profile projects. As a result of this shift and an internal push to move to git generally, I've updated my existing CodePlex projects so that I can easily mirror them to GitHub. For the immediate future, I plan to maintain both sites equally with the bulk of the documentation still residing on CodePlex, but you can get full source and releases from either location thanks to the magic of distributed VCS. In addition, all six of these…
  • Smart Unit Tests - Test to Code Binding, Test Case Management

    Pratap Lakshman [MSFT]
    18 Apr 2015 | 8:56 am
    In an earlier post we had mentioned how Smart Unit Tests can emit a suite of tests for a given code-under-test, and how it can manage this test suite as the code-under-test itself evolves. For any given method serving as the code-under-test, the emitted test suite comprises of a "parameterized unit test" and one or more "generated unit tests", and the following figure illustrates the Pex* custom attributes used to identify the test-to-code binding, that in turn enables such management.

    Network troubleshooting is part any System Administrator’s life. Maybe you need to check the IP address of a machine or test if its networking connection is working.

There are literally hundreds of networking-related PowerShell cmdlets in Windows these days. Just try out this command on your machine: Get-Command -Module Net* | Group Module…

    Microsoft Windows Server Team
    25 Feb 2015 | 8:05 am
    Although 75% of IT professionals are aware that support for Windows Server 2003 is ending July 14, 2015, there are still a lot of questions about just how urgent the need to move is. Deprioritizing migration is not uncommon when there are other technology projects that are perceived to more directly benefit business groups. However, although while perhaps not as glamorous as other projects, Windows Server 2003 migration can make a big impact on your business. There are two reasons you should prioritize Windows Server 2003 migration. The first is about the business opportunity you are not…

At last we can talk about what we have been working on for close to 18 months - “San Diego” - that was the code name for what is now “Microsoft Cloud Platform System” (CPS), which was announced earlier today by Scott Guthrie. These 18 months have been a journey for all of us in the product group. It began, as all journeys should, as conversations with our customers. What followed has evolved how we think about and engineer our products. We were struck by the large number of customers who were failing to realize the benefits of the cloud. Running one of the…

    If you are using Google Custom Search or another site search service on your website, make sure that the search results pages – like the one available here – are not accessible to Googlebot. This is necessary else spam domains can create serious problems for your website for no fault of yours.

    Touch typing, or the art of typing with your 10 fingers, can do wonders to your productivity. Most technologically literate people know a bit of typing but if you can type without looking at the computer keyboard, you can get work done faster and gain an edge. Touch typing is also a useful skill to have for mobile and tablet users because when you perfectly know where the keys are, you can “Swype” faster.

    There is nothing worse than being out and about and then running out of battery on your phone, so a portable charger could be just what you need. The Power Stick from Mobile Solar Chargers is a little stick that can fully charge your phone from flat and then can be recharged ready for the next charge when you get back home.

  • KodiRemote for Micasaverde Vera Home Automation–Part1

    I previously wrote about the excellent XBMCState add-ons for XBMC and Vera here, which enabled you to run scenes in Vera based upon XBMC’s current playback status of either videos or music. For example you could create scenes to have your room lights automatically dim down when a movie starts and then if you paused or stopped the movie the lights would automatically brighten back up. Recently I discovered there is a newer project called KodiRemote which is based on XBMCState, but expands its functions in Vera and adds basic playback transport controls and navigational buttons, so you can…

  • Use Facebook’s Web Based Messenger As A Desktop App

    Fatima Wahab
    13 Apr 2015 | 10:39 am
    Last week, Facebook released a stand alone web interface for its popular chat service aptly called Messenger after the mobile apps that are built exclusively for the feature. The web interface can work without users needing to keep Facebook open in a separate tab. This means you can use Facebook as a chat platform and effectively avoid the distractions it has on offer. Since it’s launch, developer Alexandru Rosianu has ported the web interface so that you can use it as a stand alone app on OS X, Windows, and Linux. The app is basically the same browser based version that you can now…
  • Easily Create Symbolic Links From A GUI Instead Of The Command Line

    Fatima Wahab
    13 Apr 2015 | 9:56 am
    Symbolic links to folders are exceptionally useful and equally intimidating to create. While creating them isn’t strictly tied to the Command line, doing so isn’t easy.  Symlink Helper is a tool that simplifies creating symbolic links. The best thing about the app is the obvious; you don’t need to use the command line to create a symbolic link, but other than that, for anyone who doesn’t understand too well how a symbolic link works, the app makes creating them all the more easier with support for directories, application settings, and drives. Install Symlink Helper…
  • Pin Any Window To Keep It On Top Of All Others

    Fatima Wahab
    6 Apr 2015 | 10:57 am
    Apps that deem it essential to their function will include an option to keep their own respective window on top of all others. These apps are rare and many times we find apps that would have been better off to include this feature. For apps like that there is PinMe, a free portable Windows app that lets you pin any application’s window or a folder so that it remains on top of all others. The app works on both Windows 7 and 8 (and above). Run the app. It is a bit slow when it comes to getting started but once it’s up and running you shouldn’t have problems. The app runs in…

    Color picking tools are abundantly available for almost all desktop and mobile platforms. How they work may vary based on system and device but generally you have an app that will let you pick colors off your screen and give you the color’s RGB or HEX code. CP1 is a color picking tool for Windows that stands out for its excellent and clean interface. The app can pick a color off your screen and give you the RGB and HTML code for it. When you point the app to a single color, it automatically gives you fourteen other varying shades of the same color. You have the option to expand the…

    It's often possible to take advantage of a really good price on a hard drive or SSD intended for internal installation, and put it into an external enclosure for portable use. Once, installing drives in external enclosures required tools, patience and the ability to squish a connecting cable into a very small space. Nowadays, though, manufacturers are making the process as painless as possible. And the enclosures can be very nice to look at, as well.

If those devices also have limited internal storage, as often happens in lower priced models, the user has to keep an eagle eye on the number of apps and files that are installed, to keep from running out of space. Without SD capability, is there a way to easily add extra storage space to such a device? As it turns out, the answer is yes, if the device supports OTG or "on the go" technology.

    Microsoft is planning to preview its updated Office suite for Windows 10 phones by the end of the month. While the company has already launched a preview of the universal apps for desktop PCs and tablets, the phone-optimized version will provide a closer look at how Microsoft’s Office apps will work across Windows, iOS, and Android. Microsoft launched free versions of Office for iOS and Android last year, leaving Windows Phone users with an outdated interface and a lack of features compared to rival platforms. The Office for Windows 10 phones preview will correct that, bringing a fresh new…

Both the new Halo: Spartan Strike and the existing Halo: Spartan Assault are now available from Apple’s App Store, priced at $5.99 each or $9.99 as a bundle. Microsoft had originally planned to launch Spartan Strike exclusively on Windows and Windows Phone back in December, but the title was mysteriously delayed before appearing today on iPhone, iPad, Windows, and Windows Phone. There's no signs that either title will be made available on Android or Amazon's Kindle devices. Spartan Strike is set in the Halo…

    I normally don’t write blog posts about hardware. But this particular problem seemed blog-worthy. The issue was around my wife’s PC. Her PC is almost 5 years old–it still performs incredibly well. That is one of the benefits of building a custom PC. When you build a custom PC it’s not about saving money but getting more bang for your buck. If I were to give a PC manufacturer $1000 versus what I could do with $1000 myself the difference would be night and day. You’d think an economy of scale would kick in somewhere, but it doesn’t. If you can build your…

  • App of the Month – March – Darklings for Windows Phone

    Gaming on Windows Phone is kind of a mixed bag. Often there are platform exclusives that highlight the underlying immense potential of Windows Phone. Then there are the poor ports from other competing platforms, which ruins the experience and leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes the ports are quite decent, but they take so long to arrive that by then the hype-train has left the station. “Darklings” is one of the few popular games that has taken Windows Phone as a legit third-ecosystem. Now, let’s be honest: it took quite a while for it to get the jump on MS’ mobile OS (almost a…

Given that’s still a tad far off, third-party apps are often the solution to this rather unsightly problem. This is where “zbox” comes in. Zbox tries to mimic the functionality and looks of the long-forgotten Zune Music on Windows, and add a few extra features to the mix. Upon…

But from past couple of years I have been using Mehdoh, which died recently (goddammit Chris!) so I was looking at a few options on the store and to say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
