Wanted – Ultrawide QHD G-Sync *and* 32″+ 4K Freesync Monitors

hi,

as per the title, I’m after two monitors at the moment.

I’ve messed around for ages to find the right setup, and have ended up with a gorgeous Samsung CF791 UWQHD 34″ screen with Freesync – but it doesn’t really work with my X1X, and I have a Nvidia card in the PC.

I’d like a large 4K monitor for the X1X (with or without HDR), something like the Samsung U32H850 or Benq E3207, and a UltraWide QHD G-Sync screen for the PC – something like the Acer Predator X34A or X35P.

Anyone got anything suitable? Could do a part-ex/swap with the Samsung CF791 if need be, and I also have a nice FHD IPS Dell U2515 I could throw into the mix if that works

What is Windows event log? – Definition from WhatIs.com

The Windows event log is a detailed record of system, security and application notifications stored by the Windows operating system that is used by administrators to diagnose system problems and predict future issues.

Applications and the operating system (OS) use these event logs to record important hardware and software actions that the administrator can use to troubleshoot issues with the operating system. The Windows operating system tracks specific events in its log files, such as application installations, security management, system setup operations on initial startup, and problems or errors.

The elements of a Windows event log

Each event in a log entry contains the following information:

Date: The date the event occurred.

Time: The time the event occurred.

User: The username of the user logged onto the machine when the event occurred.

Computer: The name of the computer.

Event ID: A Windows identification number that specifies the event type.

Source: The program or component that caused the event.

Type: The type of event, including information, warning, error, security success audit or security failure audit.

For example, an information event might appear as:

Information        5/16/2018 8:41:15 AM    Service Control Manager              7036       None

A warning event might look like:

Warning               5/11/2018 10:29:47 AM  Kernel-Event Tracing      1              Logging

By comparison, an error event might appear as:

Error                      5/16/2018 8:41:15 AM    Service Control Manager              7001       None

A critical event might resemble:

Critical   5/11/2018 8:55:02 AM    Kernel-Power    41           (63)

The type of information stored in Windows event logs

The Windows operating system records events in five areas: application, security, setup, system and forwarded events. Windows stores event logs in the C:WINDOWSsystem32config folder.

Application events relate to incidents with the software installed on the local computer. If an application such as Microsoft Word crashes, then the Windows event log will create a log entry about the issue, the application name and why it crashed.

Configure a centralized Windows Server 2016
event log subscription.

Security events store information based on the Windows system’s audit policies, and the typical events stored include login attempts and resource access. For example, the security log stores a record when the computer attempts to verify account credentials when a user tries to log on to a machine.

Setup events include enterprise-focused events relating to the control of domains, such as the location of logs after a disk configuration.

System events relate to incidents on Windows-specific systems, such as the status of device drivers.

Forwarded events arrive from other machines on the same network when an administrator wants to use a computer that gathers multiple logs.

Using the Event Viewer

Microsoft includes the Event Viewer in its Windows Server and client operating system to view Windows event logs. Users access the Event Viewer by clicking the Start button and entering Event Viewer into the search field. Users can then select and inspect the desired log.

Windows Event Viewer
The Event Viewer application in the Windows operating system

Windows categorizes every event with a severity level. The levels in order of severity are information, warning, error and critical.

Most logs consist of information-based events. Logs with this entry usually mean the event occurred without incident or issue. An example of a system-based information event is Event 42, Kernel-Power which indicates the system is entering sleep mode.

Warning level events are based on particular events, such as a lack of storage space. Warning messages can bring attention to potential issues that might not require immediate action. Event 51, Disk is an example of a system-based warning related to a paging error on the machine’s drive.

An error level indicates a device may have failed to load or operate expectedly. Event 5719, NETLOGON is an example of a system error when a computer cannot configure a secure session with a domain controller.

Critical level events indicate the most severe problems. Event ID 41, Kernel-Power is an example of a critical system event when a machine reboots without a clean shutdown.

Other tools to view Windows event logs

Microsoft also provides the wevtutil command-line utility in the System32 folder that retrieves event logs, runs queries, exports logs, archives logs and clear logs.

Third-party utilities that also work with Windows event logs include SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, which provides real-time event correlation and remediation; file integrity monitoring; USB device monitoring; and threat detection. Log & Event Manager automatically collects logs from servers, applications and network devices.

ManageEngine EventLog Analyzer builds custom reports from log data and sends real-time text message and email alerts based on specific events.

Using PowerShell to query events

Microsoft builds Windows event logs in extensible markup language (XML) format with an EVTX extension. XML provides more granular information and a consistent format for structured data.

Administrators can build complicated XML queries with the Get-WinEvent PowerShell cmdlet to add or exclude events from a query.

Local leaders champion a ‘region of inclusion’ heading into July Special Olympics USA Games | Stories

Puget Sound employers step up to contribute millions of dollars in donations for Games, join other community leaders to focus on inclusive hiring

REDMOND, Wash. — May 30, 2018 — On Wednesday at a forum hosted by Microsoft Corp. focused on inclusive hiring and economic opportunity in Puget Sound, 2018 Special Olympics USA Games is announcing more than $9 million in cash and in-kind donations from regional businesses in support of the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games, to be held in Seattle July 1–6, 2018. Earlier this year state and local lawmakers contributed an additional $3.4 million in support, further demonstrating our region’s commitment to showcasing the power of inclusion.

The “Creating a Region of Inclusion” forum speakers include Gov. Jay Inslee, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, retired U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, Challenge Seattle CEO and former Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire, University of Washington President Ana Mari Cauce, Microsoft President Brad Smith, and 2018 Special Olympics USA Games President and CEO Beth Knox. The focus of the discussion centers on ways to make significant new progress in developing job and career opportunities to create a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture.

The 2018 Special Olympics USA Games will feature more than 4,000 athletes and coaches who will compete in 14 Olympic-type team and individual sports, cheered on by tens of thousands of volunteers and spectators.

Microsoft is the Premier Partner of the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games. Since 2014 Microsoft has partnered with Special Olympics, using cloud-based data management to empower the organization and its athletes through technology on and off the field, while supporting the organization’s efforts to build a more inclusive global community.

The Greater Seattle business community collectively contributed over $7 million in cash support, plus an additional $2 million in value of in-kind product and services to help run the USA Games. In addition to financial contributions, USA Games partners have engaged their employees to take on more than 10,000 shifts, including Microsoft which has filled nearly 2,000 volunteer shifts. Volunteers are still welcome in support positions or as Fans in the Stands to cheer on athletes at competitions.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is more than double that of people without disabilities. To address the employment gap locally, Microsoft will host an Inclusive Hiring Job Fair with 16 local employers on May 31, 1:45–4 p.m. PDT. The job fair is open to the public, and candidates can meet with recruiters, get help creating resumes, and gain insight into employment opportunities in technology, retail, transportation, consulting, telecommunications and customer service. In addition, LinkedIn staff will be onsite to help attendees create and enhance LinkedIn profiles, provide tips for successful job searches and offer free professional headshot photos.

Employers participating in the summit include Accenture, Alaska Airlines, Amazon, AT&T, Department of Services for the Blind, EY, Facebook, The Lighthouse for the Blind Inc., LinkedIn, Microsoft, Starbucks, T-Mobile, VR-Net and the Washington State Department of Corrections. More information about the Inclusive Job Fair, hosted at the Microsoft Conference Center, can be found here.

Special Olympics USA Games CEO Beth Knox also announced a job fair for Special Olympics athletes and their families, to be held in July during the Games. The Special Olympics hiring fair will provide a venue for athletes and their families to discuss career opportunities and options with businesses including Bank of America, Microsoft and Starbucks.

Tickets are available for the opening ceremonies July 1 at Husky Stadium in Seattle, where spectators and volunteers from local businesses will cheer on the athletes in a citywide celebration of inclusion.

Quotes

Jay Inslee, Governor, Washington

“The state of Washington has a proud history of inclusivity, tolerance and compassion for all residents. Our diversity of people and cultures is a critical part of who we are, both as a state and as a nation. The pride, joy and determination of Special Olympics athletes embody that spirit,” said Washington Gov. Inslee. “I am proud to welcome athletes, their coaches and families to the 2018 Games.”

Brad Smith, President, Microsoft

“For more than five decades, the Special Olympics USA Games has made a huge difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith. “As employers, one important issue that we can help address, in the spirit of these Games, is to create and encourage inclusive hiring practices that will help reduce the unemployment rate in this community.”

Beth Knox, CEO, Special Olympics USA Games

“There are still opportunities for more businesses to show their support through contributions, Opening Ceremony ticket sales or providing in-kind support,” said Beth Knox, Special Olympics USA Games CEO. “Our athletes and families are thrilled to be a part of it.”

Tom Harkin, U.S. Senator (Retired), Iowa

“I commend Microsoft for its leadership in creating a ‘region of inclusion’ for the Special Olympics USA Games this summer in Seattle,” said Sen. Tom Harkin. “This sets the stage for a ‘global inclusion,’ especially in employment. Lead On!”

Christine Gregoire, Challenge Seattle CEO and Former Governor, Washington

“We’re thrilled to support the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games and welcome athletes from around the nation to the Seattle region,” said Challenge Seattle CEO and former Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire. “Here, we embrace diversity, innovation and creativity — fueling dreams and changing the world.”

Ana Mari Cauce, President, University of Washington

“It’s truly exciting to see our region have real conversations about empowerment,” said Ana Mari Cauce, president, University of Washington. “From groundbreaking research to internships for people on the autism spectrum, the UW is committed to inclusive education and career pathways for people with disabilities, and we are honored to host the Special Olympics hiring fair in July.”
