Linzie Borden is a cover band I joined back in late May of 2017.
Here’s the band’s Facebook page:
Here’s a live recording of my first show:
Personally I’d been fighting this Intel HD 4600 DVI/dual monitor issue for several months now, but at the time I had bigger fish to fry, so I kept putting it off until today. Those poor people on the Intel forums have been complaining about this issue for like three or four years now because “they weren’t able to reproduce the issue”, very sad. Indeed it is a very strange problem. Initially I was convinced it was strictly a driver problem, but now I think it may be some sort of weird driver/OS oddity.
If you’re unfamiliar with the issue, there are multiple threads out there on the Intel forums and several I’ve seen on the HP forums as well. The problem is that after a system reboot, the display on the DVI port is no longer detected and all you get is a black screen. The second monitor is not detected in the operating system whatsoever and the monitor shows no input signal. Right after the initial installation of the display driver, dual monitors would work, but only until the next system reboot. One workaround for this issue was to uninstall/reinstall the display driver and just never reboot the machine again, which totally sucked donkey balls.

Sure there are a few DFS-R scripts out there to choose from in various languages like batch, vbscript, and even PowerShell to name a few, but I decided to write one to fit my own personal needs at the time.
I created this so that it could be ran as a scheduled task each morning. Basically the script just lets you set an array of different replication groups to run the Health Report on, attaches them all to a single email, and then shoots that email off via an SSL connection through an Exchange server in this particular case.

If you’re reading this, then you’re not alone. Both the x86 and x64 versions of Firefox 51.0.1 run slow as dog shit and bog the rest of my otherwise fast as hell computer down on a brand new install of Windows. It seems to happen when I’ve got lots of tabs open simultaneously for any length of time, which is always. Continue reading “Mozilla Firefox 51.0.1 Runs Extremely Slow”
This isn’t too complicated, so let’s try to keep this short and sweet. In my case, I was installing version 2.4.7 of the Zabbix Agent at the time, but I’ve made it to where you can download the current version of the source if you want. Continue reading “Mac OS X – Install Zabbix Agent from Source”
Here’s an annoying one that I run into quite frequently. On Windows Server 2012, it appears there’s not a quick and easy way to change the network type for a network connection other than to use PowerShell. The problem that I typically run into, is that firewall rules for a specific program are only set for the “domain” profile, so here’s how to force the network type on some interface. This is just for my own personal reference, but I took this info directly from here. Continue reading “Server 2012 – Force a Network Type with PowerShell”
Here is a batch script, using only DOS commands, to check if the current user is a member of a specific group. The way it is currently written, you can call a batch file containing this code using the CALL command and pass the short NetBIOS domain name (or possibly the computer name if it is a local account) and the group name to search for as arguments, and it will return a “1” if the user is a member of the specified group and “0” if they are not. Just be sure to put quotes around any group name that contains any spaces. Continue reading “Batch Script – How to Check if the Current User is a Member of a Group”
Here’s a cheap ass script to tar up and dump all of your MySQL databases to separate files using the Debian system maintenance account. Sure there’s plenty of room for improvement here, but hey, it gets the job done and is perfect for a midnight cron job.
Based off of this with a few of my own customizations.

Let’s keep this short and sweet, here’s how to run x11vnc server on startup with your Raspberry Pi running the Raspbian OS. Obviously, if you don’t have x11vnc installed beforehand, then you’re a dumbass blankety blank blank and you should die.
Either SSH into the Pi (as pi) or open up a terminal and do one of the following:
