Resolve InnoDB Errors In MySQL

Database won’t start? InnoDB errors are a pain. Where was krypted for a month? Did everything finally get to me and I gave up blogging? No, the site ended up having some problems with corruption in some rows of the InnoDB tables. But, I was able to get the site back up by putting the database into recovery mode. How did I do this? It’s pretty straight forward. Open my.cnf and paste these lines in there:

innodb_force_recovery=3
innodb_purge_threads=0

Once the corruption is resolved, bring up empty databases and import your mysqldump into the new databases and link your site back up. But, the InnoDB force recovery puts the database into recovery mode, which is read only. So I wasn’t actually able to use the site, just look at it. At least the content was available, right? When MySQL isn’t writeable, you can’t log in as an admin, etc. The rest is one of the bigger pains I’ve encountered that didn’t result in an all nighter at a customer. I’ll write that up when I...

Audio recording comes to OneNote for Mac

Just a little over a year ago we released OneNote for Mac. Since then we’ve delivered frequent improvements and new experiences that have made OneNote a top 10 free app in the Mac App Store. Continuing to make OneNote for Mac even better, today we’re introducing audio recording—one of the most frequently requested features by OneNote for Mac fans (especially students), and another powerful way to capture ideas and information into OneNote—plus the ability to recover notes you deleted accidentally and view equations created in OneNote for Windows.

Handwriting Search and Apple Watch support for...

Today’s post on OneNote was written by Greg Akselrod and Avneesh Kohli, program managers on the OneNote team.

Millions of people take handwritten notes in OneNote thanks to digital inking capabilities across popular devices including the iPad, Windows tablets and Android tablets. In fact, OneNote for Windows has supported handwriting recognition since 2006. Microsoft Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 users can start writing with a click of their pen and iPad users can use a variety of styluses designed for the iPad.

Starting today, you can now search your handwritten notes that are in OneNote notebooks saved to OneDrive–just like you can search through typed text and text within images. Just type your search query into the OneNote search box to locate the page and the specific handwritten note. With OneNote’s powerful handwriting recognition, you’ll never have to worry about losing your notes again.

Manage Apps On The Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is just another wearable with a limited feature set. In much the same way that the iPhone is just another phone. But they’re not. They have apps. And the apps are what make these devices so powerful. Installing apps on an Apple Watch is pretty straight forward. But before we do, it’s worth mentioning that there are two types. the first is a glance. This is just another view for an app that is on your iPhone that the Apple Watch talks to. The second is an actual app. These have more functionality and more options. There are also built-in apps that can be shown or hidden.

Apps are managed from the phone. To install either type of app, simply open the Apple Watch app on your phone. From there, you will see any apps that have either an app or a glance available on a device.

Tap on an entry and you’ll see whatever is available for that app. New apps aren’...

In response to viewer requests for us to feature a real organization adopting Office 365, today we kick off a special series featuring the IT staff of the Lotus F1 Team to follow their implementation. The roll out spans their race, engineering, operations and design teams.

In this episode, I visit them at their Enstone headquarters in the middle of the race season where all focus is first and foremost on making the car faster and technology decisions are not taken lightly.

This first show explores the decisions around their IT implementation of Office 365. Having started almost a year ago, they began with Azure Active Directory integration, email and Skype for Business. The team share their tips for choosing between identity options, service configurations, hybrid architectures and discuss their mobile strategy.

Over 20 percent of their users are mobile, either racing, testing or designing the car or managing team logistics and operations, with at least 100...

Why to Jenkins

Confession time: back when I was a consultant, I didn’t always use best practices. I know – that’s a loaded phrase anyway, but this wasn’t good. My name is Allister Banks, and I set up autopkg to run as root with a launchdaemon. In my defense, it was on an in-warranty Xserve, and I hadn’t seen Greg’s presentation at MacSysadmin.se 2013 where he showed that he had set it up with Jenkins… because that talk was still months in the future at that point.

When writing autopkg recipes I'm often glad that doesn't run as root. #macadmin pic.twitter.com/NWLIxuxarL

The small business’s guide to secure email

It probably comes as no surprise to most business owners that email is a primary way hackers can gain access to sensitive company data and information. But it may alarm you to know that small businesses are particularly vulnerable. Specifically, overall cyber-attacks on companies with 250 or fewer employees doubled in the first six months of last year—and the loss per attack was more than $188,000 on average. The effect of cyber-attacks on the American economy as a whole is a high cost of $100 billion annually, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

That’s one reason the great Sony email hack of 2014 was such a big deal—it left every business wondering how they could avoid the same fate. It...

Open the General app.

When prompted, tap Erase All Content and Settings on the Apple Watch.

Democratizing a global business while building brand...

Today’s post on Office 365 was written by Mike McNamara, chief information officer at Tesco.

In late 2014, I participated as a judge in a Tesco Hackathon. I’ve done this before, but this time there was something new about the competition. Instead of just asking developers to come up with an exciting new app in 24 hours, we used Yammer to involve more non-technical Tesco colleagues. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a group of young retail colleagues in the North of England got a team together and presented a great idea to make our Store Locator app more social and friendly; when you look up the location of the nearest Tesco, along with the usual opening hours and whether or not the store has a pharmacy, you get a glimpse into the human side of our company, with colleagues’ stories and pictures. It’s a brilliant idea...

Apple Watch Vs. Pebble DeathMatch (Comparison)

When I started to write this, I had this idea that I’d write an article that looked at the features and the usability of the Pebble and those of the Apple Watch. Both have the ability to load custom apps, both have app stores, both do many of the same other tasks, etc.

The problem with that premise for this article is that they simply aren’t even remotely comparable. Let’s look at why:

  • Apps: The Apple Watch can support apps and glances from apps. You can load as many as the thing can take, you can get different types of apps and there are already hundreds (if not thousands – I don’t have the patience to count) of apps that have support for the Apple Watch. The Pebble on the other hand is limited to 8 concurrent apps and I...

AP Calculus Jeopardy review –“Gamifying” with...

Today’s post was written by Stacey Roshan, High School Math Teacher at the Bullis School in Maryland.

Have you ever been super excited about “gamifying” a review session only to realize that the competitive feel in the room becomes overwhelming? Each year, around this time, I play a game of AP Calculus Jeopardy review with my class. We have just finished learning new material and are ready to hit review mode. The game is a way to begin synthesizing material from the beginning of the course through to the end. The timing of this activity usually falls right before spring break, so throwing in a Jeopardy game seems particularly appropriate as a way to enliven the classroom before the vacation.

Using OneNote to take the game beyond simply an in-class experience certainly enhanced this activity. Requiring students to make corrections and write brief reflections on the problems they solved in class forces them to look back at...

You waited. And you tapped your fingers on the desk. And you sat and waited some more, for the UPS person. You stared at your mailbox. And then, after all of that, UPS showed up. And you signed. And then you had that box in your hands. The cardboard box, when opened, gave way to a sweet white box. You opened it by pulling the little tag off, and then you pulled the watch out of the box. You tried on the two bands. And you picked the one that fit you the best.

So now what? Turn on the watch by hitting the button on the side and watch that beautiful Apple logo light up the screen. But now you need to pair the watch with your phone for it to be useable. So what to do? Well, first of all, make sure your phone is updated to the latest and greatest version of iOS. From there, open the Apple Watch app on the iPhone.

Apple Watch and Achievements

As with many a wearable that tracks movement, running and the such, the Apple Watch comes with… Badges. Wait, no, they’re called Trophies. No, crap, sorry, they’re called Achievements. You could just call them gamification incentives. Either way, they’re nice, they’re modern, and to me they’re a little bit more meaningful than some of the others that I’ve seen out there. As with the Fitbit, there aren’t a ton of Achievements to be had (for example, as compared to the Fuelband, which has dozens and dozens of them).

There is a unique twist with the Apple Watch Achievements in that many are deferred until you’ve used the device for a few days, a few workouts or a few weeks. This way, you get a little bit of a baseline before you start breaking your own records. One of the smarter innovations, albeit a minor one – shows how much thought was put into minor details on these devices. Another interesting twist is that it primarily uses active calories, rather than just looking at...

Today’s post was written by Christina Hansen and Kristen Messer, teachers from the Manteca Unified School District.

I’ve seen “Send to OneNote” as a print option for over a decade. But until just over a year ago, it meant nothing to me. That is when the school board approved funding for the Manteca Unified School District (MUSD) Going Digital initiative, a year-long process of taking our District 1-to-1. But we did not just jump on the “1-to-1 bandwagon” our 1-to-1 initiative goes far beyond just getting a device into the hands of every student. It is a plan to make our students college- and career-ready by teaching them the 21st-century skills they need to succeed, and we are doing this by changing the relationship between teaching and learning. OneNote has been a major player in our plan—from the first planning stages of Going Digital to teacher collaboration before the 1-to-1 rollout, to teacher and student communication in class.

In Manteca Unified,...

Making email archive migration easier with the...

Large migration projects are never simple and it has always been challenging to move email archive data to the cloud. Two years ago we released the PST Capture Tool, which makes this process easier by locating PST files scattered across your organization, collecting them into one place, and then uploading the contents directly into Exchange Online mailboxes. But no matter how you cut it, moving dozens or hundreds of terabytes across your existing Internet connection is going to be a costly and lengthy process. We have consistently been approached by customers and partners asking for help with migrations that could easily take multiple years to complete, because of the time required to move data across the wire.

But no longer! We are thrilled to announce the public preview of the new Office 365 Import Service, which provides two new options for speeding up the process of importing PST files into Exchange Online mailboxes.
