Best Free HTML Editor

 HTML text editors are fine for programmers or those who are comfortable coding (X)HTML, PHP and CSS, but many users have no interest in this. They just want an editor that allows them to produce web pages quickly in a WYSIWYG environment.

Want to use your old iPhone accessories - well just buy one more accessory...:

Want to use your old iPhone accessories - well just buy one more accessory...:

Bottom Line:  So one of the biggest complaints with regard to the iPhone 5 (which I did receive on Friday after all as an aside), was that the previous adaptors didn’t work with the 5 because of the smaller adapter size.  The result was/is that the average 5 owner would purchase an additional $100 worth of accessories to replace the additional chargers, adaptors and dock stations that would no longer be functional.  Well there is good news (sort of).  If you buy the Lightning Adapter for the iPhone 5, you can still use all of your other accessories.  You may still rightfully be a bit skeptical for having to buy an accessory to use your existing accessories but it’ll likely be cheaper then replacing all of them.

Windows 8 introduces significant changes to the operating system's graphical user interface and platform; such as a new interface design incorporating a new design language used by other Microsoft products, a new Start screen to replace the Start menu used by previous versions of Windows, a new online store that can be used to obtain new applications, along with a new platform for apps that can provide what developers described as a "fast and fluid" experience with emphasis on touchscreen input.[2] Additional security features were also added to the operating system, such as a built-in antivirus program and a secure boot feature on systems with UEFI firmware. Secure boot requires the operating system to be digitally signed to protect malware from infecting the boot process. The implementation of this feature has sparked controversy among supporters of free software. Windows 8 also introduces an edition of the operating system designed to run on devices that utilize the ARM architecture, known as Windows RT.

How to Configure Fast Cached Exchange Mode Settings for Outlook 2010 Using Group Policy



How to Configure Fast Cached Exchange Mode Settings for Outlook 2010 Using Group Policy  courtesy  of ==> http://www.expta.com/2010/10/how-to-configure-fast-cached-exchange.html


Microsoft introduced Cached Exchange Mode in Outlook 2003, and it's been the default configuration ever since.  Cached Exchange Mode saves a copy of your mailbox on your computer which provides quick access to your data and is frequently updated with the Exchange server.


Cached Exchange Mode works like this: When the Exchange Server notifies Outlook of a change, the Download timer starts and Outlook delays receiving the change information.  All notifications that occur in the 30 second window of the Download timer are grouped and processed as a batch at the end of the timer.  The timer is then reset.  Uploads to Exchange use a similar Upload timer, which lasts 15 seconds.  For more information, see Description of Outlook 2003 with Cached Exchange Mode in an Exchange Server 2003 environment.  This behavior is the same in Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010.

While this configuration reduces network utilization and load on the target Exchange servers, it reduces the "perceived" performance of Outlook/Exchange.  Users who change from Online Mode to Cached Exchange Mode frequently complain about slow performance, since they're used to the almost "instant messaging" behavior of Online Mode.

This behavior can be changed using a simple registry change, or, as I recommend, using Group Policy.  By changing the Download, Upload, and Maximum timers to one second, your users will enjoy much improved email performance and you will still see improved network performance over traditional MAPI "Online Mode".

 Install the Fast Exchange Cached Mode GPO Administrative Template:
  • Download the CachedMode.adm Group Policy administrative template and save it to a temporary folder.
  • Open the Group Policy Management Console.
  • Navigate to the Default Domain Policy, right-click it, and choose Edit.
  • Navigate to User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates.
  • Right-click Administrative Templates and select Add/Remove Templates.
  • Click Add and browse to the location where you downloaded the CachedMode.adm template.  Click OK.
  • The Outlook 2010 Cached Mode Settings administrative template will be added under the heading "Classic Administrative Templates (ADM)".
  • Edit the Outlook 2010 Cached Mode Settings policy and Enable each of the three policies.


  • Close the Group Policy Management Console.
The Outlook users will need to download the new policy and either restart their computer or restart Outlook to get the new settings.

If you are a VPN user or a mobile user who cannot receive Group Policy settings, you can download the FastCachedMode.reg file, and install it manually.  Then close and re-open Outlook to get the new configuration.

How to Update the Offline Address Book

How to Update the Offline Address Book

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007
Topic Last Modified: 2007-01-02
This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to update an offline address book (OAB). After you create an OAB or modify OAB settings, the changes will not be available to users until the OAB generation (OABGen) process has completed.
For information about how to create OABs, see How to Create an Offline Address Book.
To perform the following procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:
  • Exchange Organization Administrator role
For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
Also, be aware that the procedures in this topic will only start the update process. It can take from several minutes to several hours to complete the process. New content will not be available until the process is complete.
  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.
  2. In the console tree, expand Organization Configuration, and then click Mailbox.
  3. In the result pane, click the Offline Address Book tab, and then click the OAB that you want to update.
  4. In the action pane, click Update.
  5. Read the warning box, and then click Yes to continue.
  • Run the following command:
    Update-OfflineAddressBook -Identity 
    
    For example, to update the OAB named My OAB, run the following command:
    Update-OfflineAddressBook -Identity "My OAB"
    
For detailed syntax and parameter information, see the Update-OfflineAddressBook reference topic.
For more information about managing OABs, see the following topics:

Users not showing in Global Address List


Users not showing in Global Address List


When you are in cached mode, Outlook keeps a local copy of the GAL and it is called the offline address book - essentially, the OAB is "cached" on your local machine along with all contents of your mailbox so that if you are to get disconnected from Exchange, you can still continue reading and writing emails. The cached copy of the OAB is downloaded once in 24 hrs from the server but if the server does not generate the OAB properly then you will not get the latest details.

When you are in online mode, it simply means you are directly connected to Exchange and you are viewing everything directly from the server and nothing is stored locally on your machine.

You need to update the OAB directly from the server (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997684(EXCHG.80).aspx). Make sure you increase diagnostic logging on the server for this process so you can see why these users do not show up!
