Thanks for reply, I will admit I have been out of the loop on pricing for a while now.

I’m going to have to stick to my original response, if I have no luck on here then I will stick the GPU on eBay as they seem to fetch a lot more on there. Apologies.

Thanks for the offer, I’m definitely keen to shift the two as a set. Do you have any intention of using the stock CPU cooler? If not I would like to accept your offer based on being able to place the CPU in the box with the motherboard which will save me finding a box from somewhere and probably a bit of postage too. :thumbsup:

New Webinar: Future-Proofing your Datacenter with Microsoft Azure Stack

11 Aug 2017 by Altaro Software     0     Altaro News

If you’ve been working in IT for the last year or two, you’ve surely heard of Microsoft Azure Stack in some manner. Many an IT Pro who isn’t familiar with it will likely hear it and make the assumption that it’s just another Azure component considering Azure’s rather fast development cycle. If you’re one of those people though, what if I told you Microsoft Azure Stack (or MAS) allows you to bring the power of Azure to your very own datacenter? Imagine being able to host workloads seamlessly in the public cloud and on-premise and have one unified management methodology for each. This is just a taste of the power of Azure Stack inside of your datacenter.

If this sounds compelling, then we’ve got -webinar-azurestack&ALP=webinar-azurestack-“>just the webinar for you!

Join Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Management MVPs Thomas Maurer and Andy Syrewicze in our latest Altaro educational webinar. They will be providing you with the information, tools, and skills you need to prepare for the arrival of this new datacenter technology and prepare your organization for the age of private hosted clouds on MAS.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What is Microsoft Azure Stack
  • Exactly how it will change your datacenter
  • How to start testing it in your own business today

At the end of the session, we’ll also run a Q&A on the topic, as always, during which you can ask Thomas and Andy your questions!

Interested? -webinar-azurestack&ALP=webinar-azurestack-“>Register here – limited seats available!

New Altaro Hyper-V webinar Microsoft Azure Stack

Date: Monday, August 28th, 2017
Time: For US: 10am PT / 1pm ET. For RoW: 4pm CET.

Bing Maps V8 Summer Update

The main release branch of the Bing Maps Version 8 (V8) Web Control has been regularly updated over the summer. These updates have brought several new features, both big and small, as well as many improvements and bug fixes to existing features. The Bing Maps V8 TypeScript definitions have also been updated accordingly. Here are some of the more notable new features added in this release.

Custom Map Styles

Customize the look and feel of the road maps inside of your application. Change the colors of the roads and land, hide certain types of labels. Create a style that aligns with your applications UI, company branding or change it just for fun. Not only are these available in the Bing Maps V8 Web Control, but you can also use custom maps styles with the Bing Maps REST Imagery service (static map images) and with the Windows UWP map control.

Try it now | Documentation

GeoXml Module

Easily import and export common spatial file formats such as KML, KMZ, GeoRSS, GML (via GeoRSS) and GPX. Load it as a layer on the map or directly access the data with just a few lines of code.

Try it now | Documentation

Ground Overlays

Overlay georeferenced images on top of the map so that they move and scale as you pan and zoom the map. This is great for building floor plans, overlaying old maps, or imagery from a drone.

Try it now | Documentation

200+ Code Samples Available

In March we announced an open source project that had 160+ code samples that showed cool and interesting ways to use the Bing Maps V8 Web Control. This project has now grown to well over 200 samples and continues to grow. Here are few of the newer samples:

SVG Pushpin Maker

Not only does Bing Maps V8 Web Control support creating pushpins using SVG’s, but it also provides the ability to add placeholder values in them as well. These placeholder values can then be set using the pushpins color and text options and dynamically change using the pushpin options without having to edit the SVG. This sample provides several tools for creating custom SVG templates that can easily be added to your application.

Solar Terminator Module

Use this solar terminator module to show the position of the sun and the shadow which separates the day from night for any date and time.

Upgrade your old Bing Maps apps to V8

Bing Maps versions 6.3 and 7 are both retired and are no longer supported. Be sure to upgrade your app to Bing Maps V8 Web Control and take advantage of all the great new features. Here are some useful resources:

In Summary

A complete list of new features added in this release can be found on the What’s New page in the documentation on MSDN. We have many other features and functionalities on the roadmap for the Bing Maps V8 Web Control.

For Sale – Hauppague & Peak TV Tuners & passive ATi 4550 GFX card

These are sitting here having been removed working from my TV PC running Windows 7 Media Center.
The accessories have not been used as MCE has it’s own IR receiver and remote.

Everything included is in the picture. Postage is not included
I’m hoping someone will want a couple of things so I can combine.
Postage will be at cost and your choice, I have boxes to hand and work from home so can organise couriers or post.

SOLD!
Hauppauge! WinTV-dualHD USB tuner – Dual Freeview HD/DVB-T2 tuner – Boxed – £35

This was bought from 365games in December 2016 so some warranty left, invoice will be included.

I already have one of these in my Windows 7 Media Center, but couldn’t get them both to work together for 4 simultaneous HD recordings so I bought a single HD tuner.
I have tested them individually and I can say with confidence this works for 2 HD streams in WMC or using WinTV v8.

I have used one of my WinTV v8 licences while trying to solve the problem with Hauppauge support so if for any reason this licence number doesn’t work then I’ll happily PM the other number.

Hauppague! WinTV Nova HD S2 – Satellite HD Tuner PCi – unboxed – £10 SOLD

Removed working some time ago when I stopped running Freesat and Freeview simultaneously on WMC.
I can’t find the CD with WinTV it’s available from Hauppague’s website for a fee. I used it for free with MCE and I expect it works with other free PVR software too.

Peak dual Freeview tuner – dual DVB-T – boxed £10

Ran rock solid in my system for years. Low profile plate, mini aerial, remote and IR eye included.

ATi HD44550 512 DDR3 PCI-E HDMI/DVI/VGA passive graphics card – unboxed – £10
This was used for several years without problems. When my motherboard died I replaced it with an all in one system on a board so this is surplus to requirements.
I tested it in my desktop system and it works fine.

If you’ve got any questions, let me know :thumbsup:.

Please feel free to make me an offer, these are just sitting here :)

Price and currency: £various
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: Bank transfer preferred
Location: Near Norwich

CompTIA: How to tap into the benefits of diversity

Much press has recently been devoted to the diversity problem in Silicon Valley, but how does the problem pertain specifically to the IT channel?

Channel firms could do better. At CompTIA’s ChannelCon event, held last week in Austin, Texas, the nonprofit trade association attempted to expose the tech industry’s diversity gap head on and explain the benefits of diversity in the workplace. If channel executives can address this issue honestly today, it will positively impact the future of the industry, fostering more productive workplaces while closing the perceived IT skills gap.

According to Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA, the IT industry could create an additional $400 billion in annual revenue if it embraced the scope of the nation’s diverse workforce.

During his ChannelCon 2017 keynote, Thibodeaux highlighted various statistics that spoke to the tech industry’s exclusion of women and minorities. For example, he said if women and people of color were represented in the tech sector as they are in the labor force, the tech sector would see one million more women and 500,000 more Hispanics, African-Americans and Native Americans in the workforce today. “Put that into context of seven million people working in the U.S. tech workforce; that [whole equals] to 20% of the entire tech workforce,” he added.

The benefits of diversity are far-reaching, he said. For example, data has revealed that workplaces that have a broad set of perspectives, opinions and an inclusive culture can result in faster innovation and better customer insight. Other benefits of diversity he cited are more productive teams, better use of available talent, greater financial returns and market share, and lower turnover. Additionally, diverse workplaces can make it easier to raise capital, he said. “Private equity firms and other people are more likely to provide capital today to companies that have good diversity numbers.”

More and more research is being done demonstrating the benefits of diversity. And they aren’t just soft benefits, either. Increasingly, these are benefits that really hit the bottom line for companies.

“More and more research is being done demonstrating the benefits of diversity. And they aren’t just soft benefits, either. Increasingly, these are benefits that really hit the bottom line for companies,” he added.

Thibodeaux outlined five steps that channel executives can take to diversify the makeup of their workforces.

  1. Focus on unconscious bias. He encouraged attendees to try “making the unconscious conscious” and recognize stereotypes about women and minority groups that might influence their hiring decisions. A common line of thinking that can prevent companies from hiring candidates with identities and backgrounds different from their own is that those candidates won’t fit into the organization’s existing culture, he said. “‘That’s a big way to exclude people: ‘Well, they’re not really a cultural fit.'” Channel companies need to start with a diverse slate of candidates and standardize hiring practices across departments, he added.
  2. Prioritize diversity and inclusion. Channel executives should approach diversity and inclusion as “a market issue” and invest in outreach efforts. “You have to go out and seek diversity. … You can’t just post the job and expect that [a] diverse slate [of candidates] is going to come to you,” he said.
  3. Build your pipeline. It’s imperative for channel executives to start searching early for new job candidates. The earlier organizations start, the more proactive they can be in finding a diverse slate. “You might be missing lots of diamonds in the rough here by not doing that, by just posting a job and letting people come to you. You’re probably going to get the same pipeline that you always got, instead of going out and finding a new pipeline,” he said. He also said channel firms should make diversity a part of their company brand and to partner with local diversity groups such as nonprofits and educational groups that can help in their outreach efforts.
  4. Examine your workforce culture. To do this, channel firms must ensure they offer diversity training, nurture and mentor a diverse staff, and are aiming for an inclusive culture, he said. He noted that some new hires will require more help than others to get started in a workplace and shouldn’t be expected to simply assimilate and adopt the company culture.
  5. Mentor and connect. He pointed to diversifying connections on social media platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn as means for channel executives to develop broader world perspectives. “You can experience things that you wouldn’t experience in your day-to-day life,” he said. Mentorship is a “really important part of connecting,” he added. When someone with a different background from your own enters the organization, it represents an opportunity to learn and mentor.

ChannelCon 2017 featured several discussions on the theme of diversity and inclusivity during the event, including a panel discussion where business executives shared their views on why diversity is important to businesses.

“[Diversity] does make companies more profitable. It does give a diverse opinion if we hear from different socioeconomic backgrounds, if we hear from different cultural backgrounds,” said Michelle Ragusa-McBain, segment operations manager at Cisco. “Those ideas, the different experiences that we bring, make companies better.”

“We know that change is good, change is constant, but change is not readily accepted,” added Nathan Archer, director of business development at service provider A&H Technology Group. “In my perspective, what I think we need to do is to educate that culture … and we need to break that open … and rebuild a new culture that is dynamic and … [diverse] to make the bottom line richer.
