Wanted – cheap laptop

Hi guys…..

So i went and spent loads of money on a nice slim hp laptop, me and the missus were going to get one each but her one worked fine, she dont like change so i took full pleasure in getting myself something nicer than 2 machines that weren’t as pretty

Long story short, my 1 year old has just learned to walk, and poured a glass of juice over her laptop. Were not gonna claim it on house insurance to avoid premiums, but i spend all the money a few months back on a nice new one. Not looking to spend a fortune. Just need something to get her buy, possible with good battery life

Anyone looking to sell

ps her old one was a hp pavilion with a passive cooled Pentium, 4gb ram, 256gb ssd, but the battery was a monster at 7-10 hours. She mainly uses it for uni work, so some light word processing , power point, internet , some spotify and the occasional sims 4 round up

Try these PowerShell networking commands to stay connected

While it would be nice if they did, servers don’t magically stay online on their own.

Servers go offline for a lot of reasons; it’s your job to find a way to determine network connectivity to these servers quickly and easily. You can use PowerShell networking commands, such as the Test-Connection and Test-NetConnection cmdlets to help.

The problem with ping

For quite some time, system administrators used ping to test network connectivity. This little utility sends an Internet Control Message Protocol message request to an endpoint and listens for an ICMP reply.

ping test
The ping utility runs a fairly simple test to check for a response from a host.

Because ping only tests ICMP, this limits its effectiveness to fully test a connection. Another caveat: The Windows firewall blocks ICMP requests by default. If the ICMP request doesn’t reach the server in question, you’ll get a false negative which makes ping results irrelevant.

The Test-Connection cmdlet offers a deeper look

We need a better way to test server network connectivity, so let’s use PowerShell instead of ping. The Test-Connection cmdlet also sends ICMP packets but it uses Windows Management Instrumentation which gives us more granular results. While ping returns text-based output, the Test-Connection cmdlet returns a Win32_PingStatus object which contains a lot of useful information.

The Test-Connection command has a few different parameters you can use to tailor your query to your liking, such as changing the buffer size and defining the number of seconds between the pings. The output is the same but the request is a little different.

Test-Connection www.google.com -Count 2 -BufferSize 128 -Delay 3

You can use Test-Connection to check on remote computers and ping a remote computer as well, provided you have access to those machines. The command below connects to the SRV1 and SRV2 computers and sends ICMP requests from those computers to www.google.com:

Test-Connection -Source 'SRV2', 'SRV1' -ComputerName 'www.google.com'

Source Destination IPV4Address IPV6Address
Bytes Time(ms)

------ ----------- ----------- -----------
----- --------

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 6

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

If the output is too verbose, and you just want a simple result, use the Quiet parameter.

Test-Connection -ComputerName google.com -Quiet
True

For more advanced network checks, try the Test-NetConnection cmdlet

If simple ICMP requests aren’t enough to test network connectivity, PowerShell also provides the Test-NetConnection cmdlet. This cmdlet is the successor to Test-Connection and goes beyond ICMP to check network connectivity.

For basic use, Test-NetConnection just needs a value for the ComputerName parameter and will mimic Test-Connection‘s behavior.

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName www.google.com

ComputerName : www.google.com
RemoteAddress : 172.217.9.68
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress : X.X.X.X
PingSucceeded : True
PingReplyDetails (RTT) : 34 ms

Test-NetConnection has advanced capabilities and can test for open ports. The example below will check to see if port 80 is open:

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName www.google.com -Port 80

ComputerName : google.com
RemoteAddress : 172.217.5.238
RemotePort : 80
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress : X.X.X.X
TcpTestSucceeded : True

The boolean TcpTestSucceeded returns True to indicate port 80 is open.

We can also use the TraceRoute parameter with the Test-NetConnection cmdlet to check the progress of packets to the destination address.

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName google.com -TraceRoute

ComputerName : google.com
RemoteAddress : 172.217.5.238
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress : X.X.X.X
PingSucceeded : True
PingReplyDetails (RTT) : 44 ms
TraceRoute : 192.168.86.1
192.168.0.1
142.254.146.117
74.128.4.113
65.29.30.36
65.189.140.166
66.109.6.66
66.109.6.30
107.14.17.204
216.6.87.149
72.14.198.28
108.170.240.97
216.239.54.125
172.217.5.238

If you dig into the help for the Test-NetConnection cmdlet, you’ll find it has quite a few parameters to test many different situations.

Nice inContact adds analytics, omnichannel support to CXone

Nice inContact has expanded the analytics and quality management capabilities of its flagship cloud contact center, CXone, as businesses increasingly look to such tools to boost sales and customer satisfaction.

CXone Quality Management Analytics Pro uses speech and text analytics to monitor customer-agent interactions. It lets companies make sure agents are saying the right things — for promotional or regulatory purposes — and flags inappropriate behavior.

The system also identifies trends by tracking conversations based on keywords, categories and the sentiments being expressed by customers. The trend discovery should help managers coach agents and develop customer engagement plans.   

In addition to the analytics and quality management system, Nice inContact added to CXone omnichannel support for Instagram and the Japanese messaging app Viber, while also giving businesses the ability to schedule tweets and Facebook posts. 

The vendor announced the changes this week as part of its summer 2018 update to CXone, a contact-center-as-a-service platform the vendor launched one year ago. The vendor said 250,000 agents in more than 100 countries now use the platform, including some employed by Fortune 100 companies. 

The summer update also gave businesses more tools for complying with the General Data Protection Regulation, such as automated and manual controls over which customer interactions get recorded, retained and deleted. 

Contact center analytics gets results for businesses

In a recent survey, 700 IT and business leaders cited analytics as the top technology for transforming customer experiences, according to Robin Gareiss, president of Nemertes Research, based in Mokena, Ill.

Businesses that had already deployed agent performance analytics credited the tools with a 121% increase in customers won, a 68% increase in self-service use, a 45% improvement in customer ratings and a 41% increase in digital sales, Gareiss said.

“Nice inContact is focusing where our research says it should focus,” Gareiss said. “Specifically, Nice inContact is focusing on agent analytics, where our research showed significant success correlations.”

Nice inContact competitors, including Five9, 8×8, Cisco and Genesys, have also been investing heavily in AI-powered analytics and management for contact centers. Google also recently entered the fray, with the release of an AI platform designed to integrate with the products of any vendor.

Beyond analytics, this year, cloud contact center vendors have been focused on delivering intelligent call routing — a tool for finding optimal customer-agent pairings — and using AI to give agents better information faster during customer conversations.
