Remove All Files Except jamf.log From A Directory

You can redirect a log file into a given directory. That directory, if it has other stuff in it, can get out of control. So, here, we’re going to remove all files except that file using the find command:

find * ! -name jamf.log -type f -delete

Once run, the jamf.log is the last file left in the directory.

Statistical Models and Same Sex Marriage

As you’ve likely heard, if you live in the United States (and possibly elsewhere), same sex marriage has now been legalized. And it’s legal in Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, Britain, Luxembourg, Finland and Ireland already. The trend to legalize same sex marriage started in 2001. And it’s been gaining popularity. At some point, it’s likely that same sex marriage will be universally legal. But when?

 

Let’s ask Excel, using polynomial trendlines. To get started, let’s look at how many countries have legalized same sex marriage. The below spreadsheet lays out how many countries have legalized same sex marriage to date, and when.

To then see a trend line, we’ll add a chart element, selecting Add Chart Element and then select...

Announcing compliance toolset for public folders

Office 365 offers a comprehensive compliance toolset that spans Exchange email, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business documents, and Skype conversations. Some customers store valuable information in Exchange public folders, and have requested that we broaden Office 365’s compliance solution to cover public folder data as well. Previously, external archiving solutions were required to meet this need.

Today, we are pleased to announce that the Office 365 archiving and eDiscovery toolset is being extended to include public folders. Customers can now place public folder content on hold to preserve it for legal or regulatory requirements. They can perform eDiscovery functions on public folder data, including search, preview and export. Entire public folders or specific content (based on keywords) can be preserved immutably. They can delete aged items out of public folders. And all administrative activities on public folders are fully audited. Throughout all these operations, users...

Announcing archiving for non-Microsoft data in...

Compliance is no longer about email alone. It has extended into realms that include social media, instant messaging, and collaboration platforms, to name just a few. In just a few years, these communication channels have become so prevalent that entire industries have spun up around them. Governance and regulatory policies have been updated to reflect the growing influence of these new mediums. When thinking of compliance, organizations must now account for all of these new communication tools that are frequently used by their employees.

Today, Office 365 helps customers stay compliant with an archiving solution that covers email, documents in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business meetings and conversations. But, our customers require and have asked for more—they want Office 365 to provide the same rich archiving capabilities over non-Microsoft data sources, such as social and messaging data, as well.

Get started on PowerShell for Office 365

Starting today, PowerShell for Office 365, a new website designed to help Office 365 IT administrators get started on Windows PowerShell for Office 365 is now live. Announced at Microsoft Ignite, this website is targeted at IT administrators with little to no experience with Windows PowerShell. The website is focused on simple scenarios that are focused entirely for Office 365 administration.

Learning PowerShell for Office 365 makes the job of IT admins easier and more efficient. For example, say your company goes through a large reorganization where departments change names and move to different management. If you are dealing with a few changes and a few people, the Office 365 Admin Center can quickly be used to make the changes. However, consider the task at hand if the changes involved hundreds or even a thousand users. While the Office 365 Admin Center is more than capable of making all the changes, the amount of work and the...

Today’s post was written by Anne Mirtschin, teacher at Hawkesdale P12 College, a small rural prep school where students are culturally and geographically isolated. Anne is an active Skype Master Teacher.

Picture the ideal classroom where there is fun, frequent laughter, intense concentration, powerful research, dedicated learning, lots of questions posed, and thinking in different ways. Students are pushed outside their comfort zones, confidence is being instilled, valuable 21st century communication skills are learned in a collaborative work environment. Deep, powerful learning is taking place.

Mystery Skype can bring this atmosphere to the classroom—a classroom that can include any age group, culture, race and country across the world. Everyone loves a mystery and hence the increasing popularity of Mystery Skype. In this ‘game,’ students connect with another classroom or educator using Skype....

Document imperfections can be distracting. Rather than producing more new content, you might spend time fixing a typo, correcting a formatting error, or moving a graphic. Over the next few weeks, Office Online is rolling out updates to eliminate these distractions to keep you focused on what matters.

Watch this short video to see all the new features:

Text formatting

Office Online is releasing new autocorrect features. The first implementation will make straightforward changes such as capitalizing the first letter of a sentence. In the coming weeks, you will see more advanced automatic formatting such as transforming two hyphens into a dash—just like you’d expect in Word.

Word Online is also adding the Format Painter, a popular office tool that can streamline document design. Format Painter allows you to copy formatting from the selected content (Ctrl + Shift + C) and paste it onto a different set of content (Ctrl + Shift + V).

Office 365 News Roundup

When we review recent Office 365 updates and improvements—something we do every couple of weeks as we pull together this news roundup—it’s usually easy to spot a general theme that ties those announcements together. Whether the theme is productivity, collaboration, teamwork or some other aspect of how Office 365 enhances the way people work, it’s rarely hard to find. Looking across the large number of diverse announcements during the past couple of weeks, however, we were stumped! So this week, we’ll keep our introduction brief and get right to the good stuff.

Let’s start with security and privacy. We gave you a closer look at our current and upcoming controls for compliance, security and organizational search that come with our next-generation information protection tools. We also started enabling organizations to...

Resource Engagements—coming soon to Project 2016

Today’s post was written by Julie Kohler, program manager for the Project Engineering team.

In listening to your feedback, we’ve learned that resource managers and project managers find it challenging to agree on and assign resources for specific projects and tasks. With no clear way to track who is working where, who is over-allocated—and with crossed lines of communication, things can start to break down.

To address these challenges, we are introducing a new capability in the next update of Project called Resource Engagements, which helps align project managers and resource managers on the specific amount of work and time period associated with a project. Resource Engagements are an evolution of the old Resource Plan feature in PWA and all of your existing Resource Plan data will be converted to engagements upon activation or upgrade.

What can project managers do?

As a project manager, in Project Pro you’ll be able to create requests for...
