Showing my 6yr old how to install ADFS v3.0

I know sounds odd to be showing a 6yr old how to setup and configure ADFS, but this is what I did tonight as I had no one else to work with on this exercise.

So lets go over what was done.

  1. Three (3) Windows Server 2012 R2 installs
  2. Server 1 was promoted to a domain controller
  3. Server 2 was made an enterprise CA for the domain
  4. Server 3 was made the ADFS server
  5. After testing the configuration I enabled the update password feature.

Now that this install has been completed I will federate with something such as my Sales Force dev account or my Office 365 account.

All done!

And my 6yr old is not paying a bit of attention to this work. He’s playing Minecraft and watching YouTube videos.

 

3 lessons to be learned from a Pencil

  1. Pain always sharpens you.
  2. Everything you do leaves a mark.
  3. What’s inside you is useful, not what’s outside.

 

The su Command: Elevate Yourself

OS:  Unix / Linux

Often called the “Super User” command. The su (short for substitute user) command makes it possible to change a login session’s owner without the owner having to first log out of that session.

Although su can be used to change the ownership of a session to any user, it is most commonly used to change the ownership from an ordinary user to the root (i.e., administrative) user, thereby providing access to all parts of and all commands on the computer or system.

And like that of Goku from Dragon Ball Z you elevate yourself to be a powerful user.

Usage example:

sysadmin@jermsmit:~$ su
Password:
root@jermsmit:/home/sysadmin#

Ask Siri “What is zero divided by zero.”

Looking for something to do? Sure you are.

Grab an iPhone, iPad device that has Siri installed and ask it one question.

The question you will ask is: “What is zero divided by zero.”

Siri then gives you the following answer:

Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get?
See? It doesn’t make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies. And you are sad that you have no friends.

Now that is funny; good one Apple dev’s

Save those diapers for the house and garden plants

In this video Grant Thompson – “The King of Random” show you how to turn diapers unused and even those used ones into enhanced soil that can store water because of the hydrogel made after the Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) in diapers get wet.

Check out the video and enjoy this cool little gardening hack.

 

Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP)
The secret sauce inside disposable diapers since the mid-80s has been Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP). Referred to by various names such as hydrogel, sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylate absorbents, or in Pamper’s FAQ as Absorbent Gel Material (AGM); these tiny crystals are carefully sprinkled inside the layers of the absorbent core of a diaper, being utilized for their incredible ability to absorb and trap fluid (i.e. from urine and wet poopy). And it’s not just major brand-names like Pampers and Huggies that use SAP, it is used in ALL of the 24 diapers we tested. And we mean all, green disposable diapers, as well as traditional.

SAP is claimed to absorb up to 300x its weight in water and retain it. In the left photo, you see a small pile of white SAP crystals from a diaper’s absorbent core. It has a consistency of a very fine white sand. We then added 65 drops of water, which was completely absorbed by the SAP in a few minutes to become the gelatinous crystal pile you see from two angles in the center and right photos.

The W32Time service cannot reliably maintain sync time

So there is a article written by Microsoft stating for the most part that you should not use Windows as a reliable NTP server.

The introduction: the support boundary to configure the Windows Time (W32Time) service for high-accuracy environments. High-accuracy environments include exchange trading houses and high-precision manufacturing companies for whose success critically accurate time measurement is required.

Later stated:  We do not guarantee and we do not support the accuracy of the W32Time service between nodes on a network. The W32Time service is not a full-featured NTP solution that meets time-sensitive application needs.  The W32Time service cannot reliably maintain sync time to the range of one to two seconds. Such tolerances are outside the design specification of the W32Time service.

Well it seems like its time to switch over to Linux for  my NTP needs.
