For Sale – Phanteks ITX Case & ThermalTake 730W Semi-Mod PSU – £59 delivered / 2 x Toshiba 1GB 7200 3.5″ SATA Drives – £25 delivered

The CPU is worth more than £70 IMHO. That puts it less than the Ryzen 3 3200G which is about £80 new and the 2400G is a much better processor all-round.

I have seen some go for that on eBay but you take you chances on there and there is no warranty, where as mine is covered until May 2020.

In the interest of striking up a deal I am willing drop to £225 delivered, but delivery will cost me at least £15 insured, so that’s really all the wiggle room I have with it on this occasion.

Jut to confirm, this is the same set of components I have been using for the last 8 months with no problems. (I am currently using it to type this reply on) so there is no issue with compatibility.

Bing adds new intelligent visual search features

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Microsoft’s new intelligent visual search technology allows users to discover information about objects captured in images without having to pick and choose a handful of keywords to fit into a search box.

The AI-powered visual search feature is available on Bing mobile apps.

“Sometimes, it is almost impossible to describe what you want to search for using words,” explained Vince Leung, product lead for Bing Images at Microsoft.

For example, imagine hiking through a meadow and seeing a flower that you’ve never seen before. You want to know what it is and whether you can get it at your local garden store to plant at home. Bing’s Visual Search can help you identify and find more information from your snapshot of the flower.

Or, perhaps you’re in the market for a new couch and spot one you like in a high-end home furnishing store, but the price tag is beyond your budget. By taking a picture of the couch, Bing’s Visual Search can help you find couches that match the style with prices that may meet your budget.

The visual search feature uses Microsoft’s computer vision algorithms, which are trained with datasets containing vast amounts of labeled images, as well as images from around the web. From the training images, the algorithms learn to recognize dogs from cats, for example, and roses from daisies.

What’s more, the learning process is never done; the performance of the algorithms improves as they get more data.

“While there have been strides for many years to get to this point,” noted Leung, “with the advent of cloud computing we are able to accelerate our ability to make sense out of pixels.”

For Exchange administrators, the 70-345 exam covers the design and deployment of Exchange Server 2016. The test poses installation and troubleshooting questions that range from mailbox database issues to data loss prevention setup.

Microsoft recommends test-takers have at least three years of experience with the management and design of Exchange Server and familiarize themselves with the integration of Exchange Server with Office 365 and Skype for Business. Admins should also have a strong grasp on PowerShell and comprehensive networking skills.

IT pros build credit toward a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification by passing the Exchange 2016 exam. However, Microsoft certification exams do not define IT pros. There are many “paper MCSEs” — admins who don’t know how to manage the products covered by the exams they passed. Conversely, others are well-versed in specific Microsoft products but never took a certification exam.

IT pros should ask themselves these questions before they opt to take the Exchange 2016 exam.

Will I benefit from passing the Exchange 2016 exam?

If you think a Microsoft certification exam will get you promoted, start studying.

When I started my career as an IT professional in the 1990s, Microsoft exams were crucial. My first MCSE was a huge stepping stone in my professional development and helped me get a significantly better position. I can’t say that every exam I took was completely relevant or made me a better IT professional, but they helped me get jobs. If you think a Microsoft certification exam will get you promoted, start studying. These tests are great for IT rookies.

For experienced IT admins? Not so much. I’ve passed the latest version of the Exchange Microsoft Certified Solutions Master exam, so I don’t see much benefit in another Exchange MCSE test. The answer will vary depending on the trajectory of each admin’s career.

How is this exam different from earlier Exchange tests?

Admins with experience on previous exams for Exchange or other Microsoft technologies might think they know what to expect. In many ways, the 70-345 exam is more of the same, but there are a few key changes.

First, there is only one Exchange 2016 exam, whereas there were two tests for Exchange 2013. The exam isn’t harder, just more concentrated. There are fewer overall Exchange questions, but Microsoft removed the easy ones. In that regard, the margin for error is smaller.

Second, Microsoft Learning modernized its certification exams to make them more relevant to today’s workplace. They have improved questions in the 70-345 exam in that they are more focused with fewer debatable answer choices.

Is on-premises Exchange even a thing anymore?

This is an important question for anyone who wants to invest their time and money to train for any technology.

Microsoft encourages businesses to move to the cloud, but that isn’t an option for many enterprises. As long as demand remains for on-premises Exchange, Microsoft will develop the product. It’s possible Exchange 2019 will require an Office 365 subscription, but admins would still need to know how to manage Exchange.

On-premises Exchange will likely remain in many enterprises for some time, at least through Exchange 2019. If your organization doesn’t plan to move to the cloud, an on-premises certification brings value.

Do I need practical experience to pass the Exchange 2016 exam?

I’ve worked with Microsoft Learning to write certification tests, and while the current exams are now more based on the real world, admins can probably pass the 70-345 exam without in-production experience on Exchange 2016.

But preparation still matters. Most test-takers rush to finish Microsoft’s test. Admins receive only 150 minutes for each exam. I recommend that IT admins build a lab and play with Exchange to maximize your familiarity with the platform.
