I am really not looking forward to work tomorrow. On Friday morning I switched on my computer by my machine, it wouldn't open up my database located on the server, it said "Unrecognisable format", I tried again, same result, reboot same result. All of my databases are backed up to three locations AND locally on my hard drive so that if the server dies I can still get to my stuff. The same thing happened with the local files.

I logged onto another workstation to try there, at that point one of the lads said "Phil, my shortcuts are saying "location unavailable or location moved", then another lad said the same, then another lad said "Phil, all of my CNC programs have the words "No more ransom" after them and they won't open.

Long story short, the server did a backup over night and got infected with some malware, anyone who logged on that morning got all of the modified files. Luckily our general manager came in late, I had disconnected his computer from the server so he still had a clean backup from late Friday afternoon (it backs up any changed files every half hour or so).

Tomorrow the company that looks after our server and all IT is coming in but it looks like a long day possibly into the night with big headaches mad.gif sad.gif

Hello folks, I'm thinking of upgrading my music laptop. I don't really need a laptop but I don't have room for a second desktop tower. I've come across these and wonder what your thoughts are.

Any advice/opinions gratefully received, thanks.

I would likely purchase from HERE something like THIS spec but with 512gb SSD and 32gb ram.

I just want to be able to swap it with my laptop, for the record, my laptop only has 3 usb ports and an hdmi out.

It needs to come in at around £850 before tax.

Thanks in advance of your help, I keep wondering if I'm missing something that is staring me in the face as to why I can't just swap it over, obviously there will be the set up but I'm hoping there is some quick way of cloning the hard drive from one to the other, somehow, maybe huh.gif

Cheers

Phil

I haven't watched it all yet, I'm watching it in instalments but it has some very interesting points.

In some ways, it's nice to hear the issues these two amazing players have, makes me feel less inadequate wink.gif

Hello folks,

I've found a great app on Android and ios called "Perfect Ear", it covers tone and rhythm and isn't boring like a lot of other ear training systems. It covers intervals, chords, singing, note recognition, rhythm input, rhythm reading etc.

It's free for the basic version and to upgrade to get all of the exercises it's only £3.99 which I decided to get within my first five minutes.

You can select guitar or keyboard

Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Cheers

Phil
