Web Coding / The code.org website
« on: December 04, 2019, 02:42:25 PM »
So I found https://code.org which provides information to for anyone looking to code. For some the information is had to access and if you do have access to tools then not really much guidance. Great website for someone looking to learn or get a recap.

I liked the page https://code.org/student/beyondk12 which had a few resources on code we use as adults. These can actually help make you money if you apply it right.

General Discussion (Public) / IoT Inspector - by Princeton
« on: November 29, 2019, 09:57:04 AM »
Wasn't exactly sure which section to post in. Princeton university students made a tool to see what's "spying" on you.

https://iot-inspector.princeton.edu

Hope fully they make it for other OS soon. Honestly, not sure why it was made for macOS first but my guess was for the smaller audience or the team that made it just liked that OS and want to see if people even caught on.

Computing, Phones, & Tablets / Get a .gov Domain Name
« on: November 26, 2019, 11:55:35 PM »
Not I'm not saying this is something anyone should do unless it's for official reasons but the article was a good read for awareness.

https://krebsonsecurity.com/2019/11/its-way-too-easy-to-get-a-gov-domain-name

A lot of it is lieing on forms but points out that not a ton of checking and verification happens.

Computing, Phones, & Tablets / Microsoft Edge (Chromium) - IE mode
« on: November 22, 2019, 12:17:23 PM »
So this is a huge issue with companies right now freaking out about compatibility. Microsoft Edge still isn't full compatible with websites designed for IE. Since Microsoft is putting so much of its stake into Microsoft Edge built on Chromium it needs to incorporate IE some how. So Microsoft Edge (Chromium) IE mode is in fact built into the new software. Make sure you have the newest version as of this post and you can have it.

https://winaero.com/blog/enable-ie-mode-chromium-edge/

Quote
1. Update Edge Chromium Dev to the latest available version (see the list below).
2. Type edge://flags/#edge-internet-explorer-integration into the address bar of Edge.
3. Enable the flag Enable IE Integration by selecting IE Mode from the drop down list next to the flag's name.
4. Restart the Edge browser when prompted.
5. Right-click on Edge Can/Dev icon on the desktop and select Properties from the context menu.
6. Modify the Target text box value by adding the "--ie-mode-test" option after "msedge.exe".
7. Now, launch Edge Chromium using the modified shortcut. You'll find the menu > More tools > Open sites in Internet Explorer mode option

Note that now the browser shows an info bar with the following text for the IE Mode tab.

All sites in this tab will be opened in Internet Explorer mode

You will need to repeat step 7 for anytime you want to use the IE mode.

Keep in mind it's not really recommended to use this feature but it's absolutely NEEDED for work or for a specific test then here is how you would do it.

United States / Random text messages sent overnight 11072019
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:01:28 AM »
So I was hearing a few people had a bunch of random texts from people they have in their contacts randomly texting them overnight. I received one too from a buddy (aka Anthony lol). When I sent him a screen shot, he said it wasn't him. Anyone hear anything out there? It was all SMS texts and between 2:30a-4a EST.

This is all over the news now... something fishy was definitely going on.

Computing, Phones, & Tablets / Web Tracking
« on: October 31, 2019, 05:43:02 AM »
So I finding way to see what's being tracked while online. Firefox now gives a report about what's tracking you.
https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2019/06/04/firefox-now-available-with-enhanced-tracking-protection-by-default/

This website tells you if your HTTP reference tracking is active. This one is one I think about a lot. Why does the website before and after need to know where I'm going.

Computing, Phones, & Tablets / Google Chrome Command-Line Flags
« on: October 31, 2019, 05:38:32 AM »
Not sure what version they'll work in or if they're still active but I found this list of features that work in command line or within the Chrome shortcuts. These are also features that you can't use any other way.

This is a continuation of thread https://www.codebrosforums.com/index.php?topic=215.0 but now Google has gone all the way and just straight block the ability to toggle hiding the "HTTPS" or "HTTP" or "WWW" entirely. I've noticed if you had it disabled before it stayed so there's definitely gotta be a way to toggle it but it's not in settings or in flags.

Web Coding / Contact Us page for your website
« on: October 17, 2019, 12:09:54 PM »
So this is a big thing nowadays because people are afraid of all the SPAM. I wouldn't personally call it the proper way to go about it but it is popular so here is an article that goes about making it.

https://www.formget.com/send-an-email-on-form-submission-using-php/

I used a Linux format because of the hosting we use but there's also options for Window Server.

One is https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/web-pages/overview/getting-started/11-adding-email-to-your-web-site
or https://www.w3schools.com/asp/webpages_email.asp

The rest are styling information.

This is a great way to have customers send you emails without knowing your actual email address. I wouldn't just copy and paste because you need to make it work on your site and also not just break copyrights is some are there.

Web Coding / Site maps
« on: October 17, 2019, 09:38:33 AM »
So I own a few domains so I figured it would be good to look into sitemaps.

I made a user friendly one at http://sitemap.jdtechservices.net but I wanted to have one specifically designed for web crawlers. This is the only properly designed way to do it. So I found a website that basically describes it step by step.

https://gofishdigital.com/how-to-create-a-sitemap/

Here are the supporting links I used:
https://www.sitemaps.org/index.html
https://search.google.com/search-console/about
https://validator.w3.org/#validate_by_upload

I want to added an example code but that's for another time because I just don't want to type it now.

So I have this issue in Windows 10 but I'm sure it can happen in other OSs but the touch screen seems like someone is touching the screen over and over and making it so I can't move the mouse. This seems to be the solution after you disable it in the device manager. It will prevent Windows from starting it again.

General Discussion (Public) / LIFX Bulbs Firmware update 3.50 issue
« on: September 19, 2019, 04:02:28 PM »
Almost a year ago I posted a thread about my Lifx smart bulbs not working and now I'm having a new issue after the latest update. The update came out about a week ago. I think it firmware version 3.50 and my White A19 and Dusk A19 bulbs were working amazing since the update in December 2018 but ever since about a week ago September 2019 they only work locally. I can control them fairly ok inside my home but as soon as my phone is off the wifi they appear to be disconnected. My girlfriend is home at the sametime and her phone controls them so I know it has to be a cloud issue. My Google Home account sees maybe one bulb here and there but mostly keeps failing. The dusk bulb seems to stay on the most but not consistent. The dusk is on a timer in the app and sometimes wonít change and sometimes will. My wifi is super strong and all the bulbs on are the same wifi as they were before. Iím a computer technician and Iíve installed a ton of your bulbs without an issue. All signs point to this being a cloud issue. I posted about it in the Lifx Community so hopefully I get a reply.

Computing, Phones, & Tablets / DoH (DNS-over-HTTPS)
« on: September 11, 2019, 03:12:03 PM »
So this topic has been consuming me for about a week and I've been reading about it here and there for a few months.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNS_over_HTTPS

"DNS over HTTPS (DoH) is a protocol for performing remote Domain Name System (DNS) resolution via the HTTPS protocol. A goal of the method is to increase user privacy and security by preventing eavesdropping and manipulation of DNS data by man-in-the-middle attacks. As of March 2018, Google and the Mozilla Foundation are testing versions of DNS over HTTPS."

So the feature now exists and I've confirmed it in Chrome and Firefox.

How to enable DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH):
First off make sure your browser has the latest version.
Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-dns-over-https#w_enabling-and-disabling-dns-over-https
Chrome: https://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-enable-dns-over-https-doh-in-google-chrome/

Test your DoH connection: https://1.1.1.1/help

Computing, Phones, & Tablets / Techs Tools
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:26:17 AM »
So I want to have something that is tested and confirmed for stuff we'll use on a regular basis. If anyone figures something out but just wants it easy to get to post of somewhere on the forum and request it be confirmed and posted. I'm posting them on "tools.techs.club" unless anyone can think of a better way beside this forum.
