Cheap Fanless Mini PC under 2.5L

While I still hate Intel iGPUs, I could no longer hold off and wait for a new motherboard with a x16 slot. The performance gains are just too big. In fact, it’s so fast, it actually matches the performance of the good old Core 2 Quad Q6600. With 10% of the TDP. This SoC is […]

SELinux woes with Tomcat on CentOS 7.6

Following up on my previous hurdles, here’s what happened after upgrading to CentOS 7.6. We use PostgreSQL primarily, but also some MSSQL and MySQL. With 7.6, Red Hat quietly decided it’s no longer a sane default to let Tomcat connect to databases. Because, webapps normally don’t use databases, right? Anyway, let’s write a proper policy […]

I want standard USB-C Headphones

OnePlus is the latest entrant to announce nuking the headphone jack, and also a new pair of headphones using USB-C. I’ve been using BT headphones for a while, so this wouldn’t bother me that much. And I’m also a big supported of USB-C as a whole. What I’m unsure about is whether these headphones use […]

The Microsoft Edge browser recommendation hypocrisy

So the latest Windows Insider build apparently nags you to stay with Edge, because it’s good enough or something. And now everyone’s shitting their pants over how outrageous this move is. Well, in fact, it is. But I’m really missing these voices when Google does the same. Which is… all the time, actually. I mean, […]

Mini-ITX Motherboards with 10GbE and PCI-E x16

Such mobos can be very useful when you use a dual-system case, such as the Phanteks Evolv X. The Gigabyte MB10-DS3 comes with SFP+ ports. The ASRock D1541D4I-2L2T has all the Gigabyte goodies, but has RJ45 10G ports instead, and also provides you with a PCI-E M.2 port. Finally, the SuperMicro X10SDV-TLN4F tops this with […]

Microsoft Teams / Skype for Business PowerShell doesn’t support IPv6

I was trying to administer our tenant’s Microsoft Teams accounts, but the connection timed out constantly on my home comp. I assumed it’s because my Office installation’s messed up due to constant switching between 2016 and 2019 Preview. For the googlers: Get-CsPowerShellEndpoint : The operation has timed out At C:\Program Files\Common Files\Skype for Business Online\Modules\SkypeOnlineConnector\SkypeOnlineConnectorStartup.psm1:108 […]

Microsoft Teams meetings are not supported in Outlook for Mac

Just one more thing to keep in mind if you decide to pull the trigger and migrate from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams: even though Microsoft claims to have completed transition of Skype for Business Online features to Teams, there’s one biggie still left. If you visit the official documentation for using the Teams […]

Fixing the dial-in number missing from Microsoft Teams meetings in Outlook

Skype for Business is being phased out, so chances are, you’re in the process of migrating your tenant to Microsoft Teams already. You obtain an audio conferencing add-on, or an E5 license, assign it to the user, it shows up properly on the corresponding admin pages, but it just refuses to show up when you […]
