Connect Amazon Echo (Alexa) to IFTTT

IFTTT makes the possibilities practically endless for what you can do with an Amazon Echo running Alexa. IFTTT provides workflows that connect Alexa to many of the most popular cloud services on the Internet. For example, Alexa can make a spreadsheet of all the songs you listen to using your Prime account, Email you a shopping list, sync To-Dos to Evernote, find your phone, set reminders on your phone, extend Alexa to manage your TV using Harmony, run Wink shortcuts, print files, manage a Wemo bulb (Belkin), control otherwise unsupported thermostats, control items within apps (e.g. make all your Hue lights a given color), time things (e.g. turn on the air conditioning for an hour), lock a door using an otherwise unsupported lock (e.g. with a Smarthings), do random things (e.g. assign a random color to a Hue light), interface with Google Calendar, and so much more.

Basically, if a service can interact with IFTTT using an API, then your Alexa can be made to talk to it. But...

Manage Alarms On Amazon Echo

One of those fun things that Alexa can do is set alarms for you. I usually sleep around 4 or 5 hours a night, so no amount of alarms is enough to roust me out of bed. Therefore, adding Alexa on my Amazon Echo to the extensive list of alarms I have around my house is welcome. Let’s look at some things you can tell Alexa to do for ya’, when it comes to alarms. First, let’s set an alarm for noon:

“Alexa, set an alarm for noon tomorrow.”

Alexa will then repeat back the alarm she just configured. Now, let’s setup a repeating alarm for every Tuesday morning at 6am:

“Alexa, set an alarm for every Tuesday at 6am.”

Now, let’s check a list of all the alarms running on your Amazon Echo account:

“Alexa, list my alarms.”

If an alarm for tomorrow is at 11am, we can then delete it using:

“Alexa, delete the 11am alarm for tomorrow”

To snooze an alarm, just say:

“Snooze”

You can also ask about what alarms you have for a given day...

Play Audible Books On Your Amazon Echo

The Amazon Echo is a great device for accessing content using a Prime membership. But the Echo is also useful for media that isn’t sourced from Prime. One of these is Audible, which makes sense, given that Audible is owned by Amazon. I found that my Audible account was around before it was linked to an Amazon account with Prime. In order to link the account, I needed to open the Alexa website and link my Audible account. To do so, open http://alexa.amazon.com. Then click on Music & Books in the sidebar.

Then click on Audible and either you will see your Audible books, or you will be able to provide an Audible username and password. Once authenticated, you’ll see a list of books from your Audible account.

Block Specific iOS Versions From Accessing Exchange

Exchange Online and Exchange 2010-2016 can block a device from accessing ActiveSync using a policy. To do so, first grab a list of all operating systems you’d like to block. To do so, first check which ones are out there using the Get-ActiveSyncDevice command, and looking at devicetype, deviceos, and deviceuseragent. This can be found using the following command:

Get-ActiveSyncDevice | select devicetype,deviceos,deviceuseragent

The command will show each of the operating systems that have accessed the server, including the user agent. You can block access based on each of these. In the following command, we’ll block one that our server found that’s now out of date:

New-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule -Characteristic DeviceOS -QueryString "iOS 8.1 12A369" -AccessLevel Block

To see all blocked devices, use

Get-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule | where {$_.AccessLevel -eq 'Block'}

If you mistakenly block a device, remove the block by copying it into your...

TA16-144A: WPAD Name Collision Vulnerability

Original release date: May 23, 2016
Systems Affected

Windows, OS X, Linux systems, and web browsers with WPAD enabled

Overview

Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) Domain Name System (DNS) queries that are intended for resolution on private or enterprise DNS servers have been observed reaching public DNS servers [1]. In combination with the New generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) program’s incorporation of previously undelegated gTLDs for public registration, leaked WPAD queries could result in domain name collisions with internal network naming schemes [2] [3]. Collisions could be abused by opportunistic domain registrants to configure an external proxy for network traffic, allowing the potential for man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks across the Internet.

Manage ActiveSync Policies on iOS Using Powershell...

Sometimes you need to manage policies in Exchange ActiveSync programmatically. For example, if a device shows up in a JSS, you can deploy policies to that device at the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) level rather than using a mobileconfig. To manage these, Microsoft has provided a few pretty easy-to-use commandlets in Powershell.

  • The New-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will create a policy based on some attributes that you define.
  • The Get-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will show what the contents of a given policy are.
  • The Set-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet will set a policy, and has the same structure s the New-MailboxDeviceMailboxPolicy, but applies to existing policies.
  • The Remove-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will delete a policy.
  • The Get-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will show all the devices that are associated with a given user.

I recently provided some answers about careers of developers, from the perspective of a hiring manager. Luckily there are others that answered more intelligently than I! So, feel free to read the article here.

You don’t like that one post I wrote 8 years ago?

So you don’t like that one post I wrote 9 years ago? Or the one from two days ago? Or a whole series of articles I wrote because they aren’t pertinent to you? Or because you disagree with my opinion (I don’t put a ton of opinions on here btw)?

Keep in mind, this is a blog. I’ll write about what interests me, or what’s on my mind. That might be Rainbow Dash fan fiction. Or how much I identified with a character in a movie or video game recently. Or how to do IFS-style loops and arrays in Powershell when translating some logic from Bash to Powershell. Or how to repair a volume in OS X. You can read it, or not… I enjoy writing and I’ll bet most people will encounter something useful here, but not everything will appeal to everyone. And that’s fine. For both of us.

What I do care about: Mistakes. Even if it’s an old article, I’d like to indicate when the tech has...

151 Awful Computer Jokes

It all began with: “There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don’t.” It’s awful.

TA16-132A: Exploitation of SAP Business Applications

Original release date: May 11, 2016
Systems Affected

Outdated or misconfigured SAP systems

Overview

At least 36 organizations worldwide are affected by an SAP vulnerability [1]. Security researchers from Onapsis discovered indicators of exploitation against these organizations’ SAP business applications.

The observed indicators relate to the abuse of the Invoker Servlet, a built-in functionality in SAP NetWeaver Application Server Java systems (SAP Java platforms). The Invoker Servlet contains a vulnerability that was patched by SAP in 2010. However, the vulnerability continues to affect outdated and misconfigured SAP systems.

SAP systems running outdated or misconfigured software are exposed to increased risks of malicious attacks.

Enable and Disable the GUI in Windows Server 2012

I’ve now installed Windows Server 2012 without a GUI a number of times. And I always seem to end up needing that GUI eventually. So, to get Windows as a feature in Windows Server, use the following command to fire up a powershell environment, entering the admin password when prompted:

runas /user:administrator powershell.exe

Then let’s install all the Windows Features with the word GUI in them:

Get-WindowsFeature -Name *gui* | Install-WindowsFeature -Restart

The server will then reboot and you’ll be looking at a login window. To remove, you can just enter the following:

Reset Apache In OS X Server To Factory Defaults

The serveradmin command can also be used to run commands. For example, to reset the service to factory defaults, backup then delete the configuration files for each site and then run the following command:

sudo serveradmin command web:command=restoreFactorySettings

This is pretty timely as I’ve seen a very high rate of pretty messed up configurations from the Server 4 to Server 5 upgrades. Basically, what seems to happen is that older servers, that were running let’s say Server 2 and Server 3 and Server 4 and now Server 5 will have a little cruft. Sites with older configurations that are incompatible with the latest proxy-based config. And finding the specific problem vs the time it takes to just reset and rebuild any specific settings is rarely worth it. So, there ya’ go. If you get errors like “Websites are turned off. An administrator can turn them on using the Server application.”  when you try to view any page other than the index.html page of a custom site, then...

How the Browning Law Group helps safeguard client...

Today’s post was written by John Browning, president of the Browning Law Group, APC.

I started my own law practice in 1999 because I wanted to help people negotiate their legal issues and because I wanted to become an entrepreneur. I’ve made a pretty good career out of solving the problems that businesses face every day and now the Browning Law Group represents scores of businesses throughout Orange County, California.

To succeed in almost any business, you need the right technology. So in 2015, the Browning Law Group adopted Microsoft Office 365 to manage collaboration and communication from the Microsoft cloud. Allow me to explain why we made that choice and how it’s helped us protect our relationships with our clients.

The right technology for today’s connected business world

Running my own practice is very rewarding, but it’s not always easy. I have to manage cash flow, keep track of payables and receivables, make payroll and at the same...

OneNote, ELL and special education at Sammamish High...

Today’s post was written by Rachel Pinter, special education teacher at Sammamish High School.

When a school or district invests in a 1:1 technology program, the decision yields hundreds of questions. What device would best serve students? What grades should have access to YouTube or other helpful (but potentially distracting) resources? Do we teach keyboarding to our students? If so, who does that? (Does anyone want to do that?) And then there’s the big question: how do we connect this massive investment to our greater district purposes of academic success, college and career readiness, and a positive and productive life?

At the heart of the issue, we want our students to be successful. Our belief is that investing in technology increases that likelihood because we are providing them with better tools and experiences. If we do better, they’ll do better. But some groups of students have educational needs that can be overlooked—or even inadvertently...

April was a busy and exciting month for the Office 365 admin center team. We started to roll out a variety of new features in the new admin center, including new reporting capabilities, customization options and user management improvements.

So far we’ve upgraded more than 175 million accounts and each week millions more people are using the new Outlook.com to collaborate effortlessly, focus on what matters and get more done.

To provide you an email experience with enhanced performance, security and reliability, the new Outlook.com has been built upon our latest Office 365 infrastructure. Because the Windows Live Mail 2012 email application doesn’t support the protocols used by this new infrastructure, you will not be able to send or receive Outlook.com email from Windows Live Mail 2012 after your account is upgraded.

Office Online Server now available

We are excited to announce the release of Office Online Server (OOS), which allows organizations to deliver browser-based versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote, among other capabilities. Microsoft recognizes that many organizations still value running server products on-premises for a variety of reasons. With OOS, you get the same functionality we offer with Office Online in your own datacenter. OOS is the successor to Office Web Apps Server 2013.

OOS scales well for your enterprise whether you have 100 employees or 100,000. The architecture enables one OOS farm to serve multiple SharePoint, Exchange and Skype for Business instances. OOS is designed to work with SharePoint Server 2016, Exchange Server 2016 and Skype for Business Server 2016. It is also backwards compatible with SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server...

Marks & Spencer uses Office 365 to boost...

Today’s post was written by Carl Dawson, IT director for Marks & Spencer.

Marks & Spencer (M&S) has come a long way from the Penny Bazaar stall opened by Michael Marks in Leeds Kirkgate Market back in 1884. Today, we sell quality products at great value to 33 million customers through our 900 stores in the United Kingdom. The M&S brand is internationally recognized, with an additional 460 stores across 58 territories in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. And more than 7 million registered users do their online shopping through M&S.com.

To ensure we’re putting customers at the heart of our business, it’s really important that we’re agile and responsive. Three years ago, we embarked on a new journey to find the right technology tools to support a new business culture—modern, agile, connected and collaborative—that’s defined by a digital mindset.

We chose Microsoft Office 365 cloud-based productivity tools to enable this change in our...

BCC all mail to an OS X Server to an Email address

I’m pretty big on privacy. Actually, I don’t need much privacy; I’m an open book. But I try to be very respectful of the privacy of others. Still, there are certain valid circumstances to send all mail that goes to an OS X Server to an email address. Maybe you have an automation that picks up mail from support staff and files it into software for ticketing, maybe you have a legal hold. In many cases, it’s not my place to judge the validity of such requests; only to find ways to implement them.

To bcc all mail to an OS X Server, first disable the feature from Postfix so you can enable it in serveradmin. First, edit the postfix config file, /Library/Server/Mail/Config/postfix/main.cf. Open the file in your favorite text editor and remove the line that starts with always_bcc. Then close the file and save.

Next, run the following command to enable the option:

sudo serveradmin settings mail:postfix:always_bcc_enabled = yes

And finally, define the email...

Our journey into the world of OneNote

Today’s post was written by Gerald B. Johnson, data support specialist at Feldwood Elementary School in College Park, Georgia.

As the data support specialist at Feldwood Elementary School, my role is to support teachers in using their students’ assessment results and to support my principal in identifying key data points for decision making. As I began planning how to facilitate these tasks effectively, I knew I would need a medium to organize, store and share the vast amount of information we collected throughout the school year. Like many of you, I was used to keeping a physical binder containing this information about my homeroom class. The problem I faced was that I was no longer in the classroom and needed to facilitate this process with over 30 teachers. The idea of thumbing through over thirty five-inch binders on a regular basis was not an appealing idea.

During the second semester of 2015, our school district purchased the Office 365 suite. My school...
