I know some talented people, and one of them is a colour consultant. Friend of my friend.
My friend, bless her, made me realise that there are things I have poor judgement in. Choice is clothing colours is one of those. She has good taste in clothing. The colour consultant agrees.
So now, I’m dressing lighter.
as seen in Ride On Magazine:
Ask ten cyclists the best way to fold a business shirt, and you will get ten different answers. Ride On went undercover and discovered the technique for shirt folding used by the Royal Australian Air Force.
1. Lay the shirt face-down on the folding surface. Smooth out any wrinkles so the shirt is completely flat.
2. From the right side of the shirt, fold about one-third of the body in toward the centre of the shirt. The fold line starts at the centre of the shoulder and ends at the tail. You should see the back of your shirt with about one-third of the front folded to the back.
3. Neatly fold the sleeve forward, creating an angled fold at the shoulder. The sleeve should line up with the edge of the first body fold.
4. Fold the left side in the same manner.
5. Fold the shirt tail up several inches and then fold again, moving the bottom edge to just behind the collar of the shirt. Turn the entire shirt over. Ta-dah!
6. Many riders use the fold and roll technique; once folded, the shirt is rolled up to form a tube.
Shirt folding boards that help ensure a consistent fold can be purchased, or made out of stiff cardboard.
Some advise limiting the amount of friction between fabric layers to lessen the amount of creases. This can be done by layering the shirt between two big pieces of plastic, such as a dry-cleaning or garbage bag, and folding the shirt as normal, but with the plastic between the folds. This will prevent creases ‘sticking’ as the fabric is not rubbing against itself.
Spacious panniers or a big bag minimise crushing or you might also stash a few days’ worth of clothing at work on a non-riding day. Many people use a combination of options, depending on weather, storage and change facilities at their workplace.
Going though the backlog of things to log about, I found this from 2014.
The issue you are seeing is because your SAMBA File Servers are not part of our Active Directory Domain.
So the SAMBA shares folks are connecting to are not within the MSWINDOWS domain, there is no trust relationship between MSWINDOWS and your SAMBA workgroup/domains. Microsoft Windows by default will always attempt to connect or reconnect with the logged-in users domain credentials (ie. MSWINDOWS) first, IF you do not supply your Samba domain\user credentials.
Lockout occurs from your end when a certain number of incorrect authentication attempts are detected.
So what you should do is map your SAMBA network drives as a different user from Windows explorer, explicitly specifying the Workgroup (“SAMBAPC\userid” in the case of shares to SAMBAPC) or domain (“SAMBADOMAIN\userid” for everything else) for the relevant user.
If this is done it generally avoids the issue.
Still true 4 years later.

– Mike Rowe, TED Talk from “Learning from dirty jobs“.
As he stared at the end of his life when diagnosed with cancer, Jonathan was hit with the fact he was not the man he thought he was – He had become the kind of man he would not want to be near.
Two remarkable people appeared and taught him life’s greatest lessons, and in that started him on the road to redemption that saved his soul and saved and his life. that started him on the road to redemption that saved his soul and saved and his life.
This television journalist seemed to have everything, until that everything included cancer. Jonathan writes about his intimate journey with a deadly disease. And he also tells a bigger story about how the disease launched him on a pilgrimage to become a better man.
He uses his gifts, as a raconteur to show how some of the answers about how to survive his cancer were revealed in his quest for redemption.
He published his first book in 2017 – The Other Side of Ego.
There are no sorrows when we break bread.

After uninstalling the K9 Web Protection product, I was getting this error in Internet Explorer:
What went wrong?
In my case, K9 failed to uninstall the bckd.sys driver. Renaming that file soon fixed the issue.

Wouldn’t Get-ADGroupMember be a better choice than Get-ADGroup?
Yes, it would. If the group is not a large group. If it has a large number of members, you’ll run into the following error:
