Now, I want to make sure I have labelled <em>all</em> of my snoozed items. How can I search for the ones not yet labelled? I have tried this, but it does not work:</p> <pre><code>in:snoozed -label:mysnoozed </code></pre> <p>[*]: whenever you work on an snoozed item (reply to it, for example), the item is automatically unsnoozed.

One of those statistics is the length of the video as a duration. When I import this data into Microsoft Power BI, it can be represented as either a time of day (i.e. in 24-hr format or 12-hr with AM or PM) or as a floating point number.</p> <p>Is there a way to represent this information, either in the Excel file or using some feature of Microsoft Power BI that will show me this value as a duration rather than as a time of day or floating point number?</p> 1 Asking college to unblock PS4 servers Mark Horowitz 2018-10-15T12:23:11Z 2018-10-15T12:28:00Z <p>My college has a block on various websites and all gaming servers. They explain that all of these sources waste a lot of data. Largely, all students who play video games in our college are on PC, while there's probably a handful who use PS4 for online gaming. I'm going to write to the IT desk of the university asking to at least unblock PSN servers, with the argument that this would not cause a lot of unwanted data consumption (speedtest shows we get about 90 mbps = 324000 Mbph lan connection in our rooms, while Fortnite takes only about 100 Mbph). </p> <p>The concern in question is, though, is it possible for them to unblock only the PSN servers for games such as Fortnite, Battlefield 1 and Rocket League? I know that Fortnite uses "Amazon web services" servers, but not sure if they are separated into consoles and PC like that. </p> 0 Fast navigation in Midnight Commander Shell link mode dmk 2018-10-15T12:12:28Z 2018-10-15T12:12:28Z <p>Is it possible to achieve the same behavior as on the local machine with Ctrl+O allowing navigating directly in shell, when connected to SSH server (Left / Right -> Shell link...)?

Ritardi.Net 2018-10-15T11:42:27Z 2018-10-15T11:42:27Z <p><strong>PREMISE</strong></p> <p>My PC started to act weird, webpages loads really slow, takes time to load a picture in local, often moving the mouse over desktop icons will strip the background leaving a black square. Today the after firefox freeze the PC disconnected my user and when back the background was totally gone. I suspect it is my graphic card, days ago I had opened the tower and removed a lot of dust, on the moment the performances improved, but today we are back at the beginning. I'm no tech with hardware, I have no idea how to test if the card is done for, neither I know what kind of card can and cannot buy accordingly with my motherboard (I have to find its name, just know it is a Gigabyte) it could be possibly anything else though.</p> <p><strong>MY QUESTION</strong></p> <p>Is there a protocol or checklist that I should use to answer all my questions above? What should I check to determine if a card is compatible with my system and if I can mount it on my PC?</p> -2 Could this be a way to bypass my university's bandwidth restriction? zjeffer 2018-10-15T10:53:53Z 2018-10-15T11:29:49Z <p>I'm in a student house that's managed by my university. To get internet, I need to connect an Ethernet cable from my PC to an Ethernet port in my wall. Afterwards I need to connect to the university's VPN using my university email and password. The bandwidth limit is only 50GB, it looks at the past 30 days if you're over it, and then it drops to about 0.10 Mbps instead of about 55.</p> <p>There is a way to bypass this bandwidth restriction, without logging into my VPN. My university has a website that gives you access to several programs like Maple, Matlab, etc. It also has Firefox, chrome, IE, cmd and many others. It connects me to these applications with Citrix Receiver, and that way I can have access to any website (they told me that this was possible after I complained about the internet), without a bandwidth limit. Sadly through Citrix Receiver the applications are quite old and some plugins don't work.</p> <p>Is there a way to 'redirect' internet access through Citrix to this pc, so it's just like I'm using my university's VPN without having to log into it?</p> <p>I study computer science so it's really important for me to have access to internet that's at least faster than 0.10 Mbps. </p> 0 How do I only use keyboard to control my computer for all everyday usages? Andi Ferhati 2018-10-15T10:49:50Z 2018-10-15T11:51:09Z <p>I have searched about this but I mainly get articles about broken mouse and temporary use of command line tools or GUI interface through keyboard. I only use Linux OS (Ubuntu and Debian).</p> <p>What I want is total control of:</p> <ul> <li>file exploring via terminal (instead of GUI file explorer) - possible with any normal terminal.</li> <li>web browsing (with Firefox or Chrome/Chromium) - partially possible, shortcuts for open/close tab are OK, moving page-down/up is OK, selecting part of text on page is not possible (to my knowledge), etc ...</li> <li>mailing - no idea if already possible</li> <li>text editing via terminal - possible.</li> <li><p>extras:</p> <p>. text selection of terminal results (partial selection is still not possible, to my knowledge).</p> <p>. video open/close/settings/control (with the VLC functionalities) - partially possible.</p> <p>. image editing (at GIMP levels) - no idea if already possible</p> <p>. virtual machines - no idea if already possible</p></li> </ul> <p>Would be interesting to know more on this topic by other users. There is no right answer here, but many different approaches might bring nearer to the aim of total keyboard only control of a (nowday) computer.</p> 0 Windows 10 icons become blank when they are large Rostamiani 2018-10-15T10:48:30Z 2018-10-15T12:25:11Z <p>I have windows 10 v1833 on my HP laptop.

I need some help on how to achieve the following with two partitions on my device:</p> <ol> <li>READ Only OR CDFS Partition</li> <li>Hidden / Unmounted Partition</li> </ol> <p>Partition 2 will contain raw / cyphered data. Its purpose is to be assessed by a utility on partition 1 that will uncypher / read the data on part. 2.</p> <ul> <li>The utility on 1 will also allow to add data on part. 2. </li> <li>I don't want the part. 2 to be mounted on Windows / Linux / OSX when the device is plugged.</li> <li>The part. 2 will be accessed from its UID path if possible. This can change depending on the solution adopted.</li> </ul> <p>How can I get such behavior?</p> <p><strong>WHAT I HAVE TRIED SO FAR</strong></p> <ul> <li>I've used an utility called BOOTICE to edit the partition ID but the Hidden IDs are respected only on Linux / OSX, not on Windows.</li> <li>I've read somewhere that Hidden IDs are respected on windows on fixed drives only but not on removable devices.

Jonathan 2018-09-22T15:59:40Z 2018-10-15T12:18:04Z <p>So the network I am connected to has the feature ap isolation and I do understand the meaning of ap isolation, is in summary the imposibility for any device to communicate with some other with the exception of the reuter.</p> <p>Today I have been using wireshark and was able to find arp requests coming from one device to another. In particular a Motorola phone connecting to the router. Taking into account there is ap isolation I wonder if this is normal behaviour or maybe I am suffering some kind of middle man attack or sniffing attempt.</p> <p>Does Ap Isolation protect from middle man attacks?

Spock 2015-09-10T23:31:39Z 2018-10-15T12:18:53Z <p>We use some software that will SSH to a bunch of machines and do something. The problem is in our test lab, the virtual machine’s are re-new (destroy and re-created) very often, so the software will treat the virtual machine as new, which it is, and will fail because the authenticity of the host cannot be established. I was told to manually PuTTY in and accept the host key, and after the software will be happy. </p> <p>Doing this with a few hundreds virtual machines is not fun.</p> <p>So, I want to know is there any a command tool that I can automate to accept the host key for PuTTY? We are in a closed lab, so I am not too worried about security.</p> <p>I know there are some solutions for Linux environment, but this one is Windows.</p> 0 Windows 8 "device setup" screen takes forever Sacha K 2014-09-29T15:23:28Z 2018-10-15T12:00:11Z <p>When I plug in a USB device (flash driver and USB to serial adapter) I see the same screen as the user in this question <a href="">Windows 8 &quot;Device Setup&quot; process stuck without further progress</a>, but I'm not getting stuck it's just very long.</p> <p>When I plug a new USB memory stick / flash drive it is recognized and appears in explorer but the progress bar of the device setup is only at about 30% at that point and will take 20 or 30 more seconds to complete.</p> <p>Same thing when I plug a USB to serial adapter.

Troggy 2009-09-29T21:38:20Z 2018-10-15T12:32:22Z <p>Ok, so I inherited an excel workbook full of excel forms to modify. I am not the original author of the form. I cannot for the life of me figure out why it wont let me change the background color of certain cells.</p> <p>The form has the cells colored where user input is required. I simply want to change this background color. I am using Excel 2007 on Windows XP, but this form was orginally created with an older version of excel.</p> <p>Steps taken so far:</p> <ul> <li>Worksheet is unlocked</li> <li>Workbook is unlocked</li> <li>cell is unlocked</li> <li>any attempts to change the background color from (right click 'format cells' and ribbon controls). It looks like it changes it in the settings, but you say ok and it doesn't apply.</li> <li>No VB code that affects the color of cells</li> <li>Cannot not see any data validation that would even affect a cell color. (Maybe I am missing something?)</li> </ul> <p>I do notice that once input is put the cell, the color of the cell will change to white. Is thier some data validation that can change cell color once content is inputed?</p> <p>Any ideas?</p>
