-Joe has some follow up about the HEViC files wreaking havoc and his photo screensaver. After changing the screensaver, the files are no longer taking up a lot of space
-Sam & Jerry both use the Brooklyn screensaver from Github: https://github.com/pedrommcarrasco/Brooklyn
-Jerry wants to know what the guys are doing for client gifts for the holidays. Joe & Sam’s answers: nada.
-What Jerry has been doing over the years is to send gift baskets to key people within his most valuable clients
-An important point that Jerry brings up is that once you start, it is very difficult to stop giving gifts each year. Sam has a vendor story that is right along those lines.
-Getting back to tech, Joe has a client with
intermittent wake from sleep issues. His team did some bench
testing to reproduce the issues, and they found this thread.
All 3 had people use the extension cord solution and it seemed to
work for everyone:
-Jerry has a story about a 21.5” iMac upgrade gone wrong and he gets salty when describing the details. He was able to perform a repair offsite and save the day!
-Joe has some positive information to share about TeamViewer and how it handles modifier keys
-Sam was excited about TeamViewer coming to Synology
and quickly installed the app, only to find that remote access is
only available for TeamViewer for Windows:
Please note that there are some known issues:
Connections are currently only possible from TeamViewer 13.1 running on Windows.
macOS, Linux or mobile clients are not supported.
-Joe talks about Sophos being upgraded to Sophos Home. Jerry also has experience with ESET antivirus.
-To keep our Ubiquiti streak going, Joe discusses
changing the wireless mesh uplink priority and how it can greatly
improve the stability of a mesh network:
-On the flip side, Sam learned from Ubiquiti support that disabling wireless uplink should improve the stability of wired access points
