Today a client sent me a video of his server. I know, servers don’t move much... The purpose of the video was to let me hear the funny sounds that the hard disk drive was making.
I’d know that sound anywhere. Not the blower fans, tune those out. You’ll have to turn the volume up and hold it close to your ear to hear it.
I'm doing the OOB ("out-of-the-box") setup on a new Windows 10 laptop. With every change #Microsoft makes, it gets worse. Now, you can no longer activate the computer without giving them an email address.

There is no direct IPv6 equivalent to arp -a. Address Resolution Protocol works with IPv4. The "arp -a" command resolves IP addresses to MAC addresses. I found the rough equivalent for IPv6 addresses. The rough equivalent is:
netsh interface ipv6 show neighbors

Dear IT-humans: Please do yourselves a favour and create security@ as an email address on all of your domains which is actually routed and read by someone with knowledge about your IT!
That way you make it easy for people who accidentally stumble upon security issues with your infrastructure to actually report them to you.
The sheer fact of having and reading security@ (as mandated by RFC 2142) will help improving your IT security.
There’s a standard antivirus test file. It lets you test your computer to make sure the antivirus software is actually working. You can learn about it at eicar.org.
I wrote a safe, downloadable script that uses the standard test file.
You can read about it here, and download it for free if you want to.
Cybersecurity. Because the job will never be completely done. I'll post other stuff, too, because I'm not one-dimensional.
