Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 4:52:00 AM



So finally ,after nearly a decade of pokes, likes, status updates and pictures posted Iimage decided enough is enough and I am re-claiming the little time I have on this earth. No more checking for social media updates on my phone(Wooo Hoooo). It feels rather liberating to say the least.
To many users it might not be that obvious because the setting is hidden from the usual Facebook settings, but you can permanently delete your Facebook account.
Remember there are two things you can do:
  1. Deactivate your account
    • Doesn't delete anything merely “hides” everything e.g you won’t show up on searches etc.
    • You can reactivate if you change your mind
  2. Delete your account
    • Actually deletes your account , permanently. Here is how:
    • Be sure because you can’t change your mind



1. Download a copy of your data




 

 

The first thing you want to do is download a copy of your data. If you not sure how then go here

2. Process your delete

 
It may take up to 90 days from the beginning of the deletion process to delete all of the things you've posted, like your photos, status updates or other data stored in backup systems. While we are deleting this information, it is inaccessible to other people using Facebook.

 

There are many popups asking you “if you are sure” so be sure before you proceed.

How to know if a betting site is secure

Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 11:22:00 AM

Online gaming websites covers a range of casino games, poker, sports betting, skills based games, social gaming, lotteries, bingo etc. While these sites provide entertainment to millions of people, they could also pose a real security risk to unassuming players.

Since the first online casino offering real money in 1996, several attempts have been made to create industry standards. However, while there has been some progress, there are many sites which are not secure and do not currently meet such industry standards. In 2006, out of an estimated 2,500 online gaming websites, only about 100 were certified by the E-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA.org) The organisation “certifies online sites as having prompt payments, safe storage of information, random games, honest advertising, and responsible gambling practices”.

So how do you protect yourself when betting online? Two important security features to look out for when you are betting online are: 1) the website URL; and, 2) the “lock” icon. These features should provide a good indication about the security of the website, in this case online betting sites.

You could also use website security checking sites, which enables you to see how secure a betting website is. Some tools such as Qualys SSL Labs apply a grade from A to F to enable you to compare the security offered by different websites. A website graded C and lower should raise concern about their ability to protect your cash and your information.

Apart from security concerns also be sure to find out more about the legality of a site as this could vary from country to country.

The following tips will help you to avoid the pitfalls of unsafe betting practises:

  • Find safe and imagetrustworthy sites by checking the web page URL. The address of a secure website usually starts with https – which indicates that the site has a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) installed
  • Check for the "Lock" icon - Click (or double-click) on it to see details of the site's security.
  • See betting as entertainment not as a way to make money.
  • Bet on reputable websites, an example being bettingtop10.com
  • Be disciplined when betting - have clear rules for when and how much you’re spending. It is wise to bet only small amounts especially if you are playing at a new website.
  • Do not bet on impulse or when you are in a bad mood, and only use money you don’t need.
  • Do not bet on sports you don’t understand.
  • Use e-wallets for payments – e.g. Paypal.com

 

Online gambling is an ever expanding and lucrative industry. However, while research is attempting to fill the many knowledge gaps relating to the complex regulatory and legislative aspects of this phenomenon, the millions of players who are enjoying this form of entertainment should remember to always follow basic /general security practises. If they do not, this wise saying - a fool and his money are soon parted - could easily apply.

The Simplest way to Backup DHCP Automatically over the network

Posted By: The Funky Tech Guy - 8:09:00 AM


As most of you know, and probably the reason why you are here, is because Windows Server doesn’t have a builtin, automated dhcp backups solution to backup the DHCP Server database over the network.
However, did you know that by default DHCP does already backup the database automatically every 60 minutes? Only problem is it does it locally to C:\Windows\System32\dhcp\backup . Thats not going to help if anything happens to the server.

The Problem

You want to be able to do automatic DHCP backups to your backup server or any other networked location

Solution 1

  1. Create a Batch file with the below code or get a copy HERE and store it on the server e.g c:\scripts
  2. Modify the script by simply changing SERVERNAME to your backup , file server or wherever you want to store the backup.
  3. Create a new scheduled task and configure it as follows

    Automatically Backup DHCP

    I’ve set mine schedule to create backups every 2 hours for 8 hours starting at 8am but you can do it once a day depending on your needs. Mine is 20MB small so you don't have to worry about space issues. The script also creates the destination folder based on the current date and time e.g DHCP_20170202_1738

    Automatically Backup DHCP Over the Network



    Backup DHCP Automatically

    How to Backup DHCP Automatically

    The rest of the settings are defaults
  4. Test by running your scheduled task manually and voila!!
