    Hard to say without more info. looks to be an email filter dropping it because it has macros. Macros are code that is run inside the file and is generally frowned upon from a security perspective. Reach out if this is still an issue.

    There are some issues with old SMB version depreciation. It is not a matter of bits by any means. it is that by default super old versions of SMB are disabled because all kinds of security issues exist in the protocol. Easier to just disable than to patch. All of these settings can be...

    If you are trying to use peer discovery on Windows, don't. It is almost kinda usable in the best case. In a business critical situation with more than 2-3 computers you will never get it working. In an ideal situation you have an active directory server controlling everything. That would be a...

    I use Clicky Analytics for my sites. Web Analytics in Real Time | Clicky Very nice for real time analytics and tracking. They also have a "Spy" feature where you can watch a user progress through the site in real time, as well as review it later. Excellent for optimizing customer flow, seeing...

    A user had sent me a message regarding Autocad and printing scale. I tried to reply, but his inbox is full and not accepting messages. Im going to put my answer here. Sounds like a printer setting. Can you access the printer properties/ preferences and look for a setting relating to "fit to...

    I know this isn't directed at me, but my Testdisk suggestion was not meant to write you off, but rather offer a simple recovery option if you did indeed just overwrite a few select sectors. Happy to help further, but i like to start with the simplest option being the best option

    There is no doubt that there was a time that ZFS was indeed the cat's ass. I think that time has passed for most applications. Storage media, including SSD based is so cheap now and will be cheaper next year. There is no reason not to run real hardware redundant arrays. Not that you cant do...

    Surveilance Camera and Recording Set Up. What's the current viable methods?

    BW mode is favoring IR and slamming the gain, so any light source is going to blow it out. What you might try (depending on the size of the area in frame) is to get a few IR lamps and fill the area with IR illumination. that way the gain will stay relatively low and the odd stray light...

    It depends a lot on your goals. If you are targeting on a national or international level you will be primarily focused on back linking from credible sources larger than yourself at first. Blog posts, product reviews, press etc. If you are looking for local exposure, Google My Business is a...

    Is it just a matter of sending raw serial data to the machine, and then it knows what to do with it? That is to say, the source of the data doesn't matter to the machine? If so, i would go with a reasonably modern computer, run a VM of your DOS, assign a virtual COM port or pass through the...

    I have always had good results with Testdisk. TestDisk - Partition Recovery and File Undelete It will scan through the whole disk and detect the start and end of the filesystem and give you the option to write the partition table based on that. I would try this before diving to deep into ZFS...

    Sorry guys kinda fell of the earth for a while there. In regard to the DOS DVD burning: Im sure it is possible, but i have to wonder what the end goal is there. You may be better served just networking and sending the information to a network share of some sort. I just wonder what sort of...

    Ill get back to you once we know more, but i thought the exact same thing. Believe it or not some wireless providers NAT/Firewall the hell out of the path to the client. The one i set up for a shop in the midwest ended up requiring a static route to the VPN server. easy enough once you have...

    You are correct that your 192 address is not routable on the internet. What is happening is you are being NAT'd by the router. One side of your router is your internal network (LAN), and the other side should be a single routable public IP (WAN). In an ideal world that would be the address...

    For the most part cat5e is sufficient for anything. Cat6 is nice because the wire gauge is thicker and thus has less resistance. This means useable distance is substantially increased. Of course, more copper, more money. I always use it for long runs because if you don't, the connectivity...

    Monitors only support the resolutions they support. If you send it a resolution it doesn't support it will say something like that "Out of Range" or something similar. Ideally you want you want to run a monitor at it's "Native Resolution" If you look up the model number you should be able to...

    I can't predict the future, but i think the effect will be negligible. Most if not all CNC machines use custom CPUs and electronics. Not x86 Intel CPUs.

    Sure. Most cable installers have a meter that can measure this. They plug the end of the coax into it and it will display things like Upstream power, Downstream Power, Signal to Noise Ratio, etc. In most cases like you are describing it is the Signal to Noise that is getting you. You will...
