Hide Unlocked Achievements for Steam Website Mod

 Currently I have 235 achievement out of 700 for Halo MCC, lets hope this makes things easier to focus on and filter out. This script should be useful for any game on the following url:  https://steamcommunity.com/id/{users}/stats/{game}/?tab=achievements

Sharing VPN network

Wasnt able to get this to work but some notes on how to get started.  - Spoofing the machine ID? https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/258681/can-somebody-abuse-my-hardwares-ids - https://superuser.com/questions/485152/use-vpn-through-another-machine - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/internet-connection-sharing-in-windows-10/f6dcac4b-5203-4c98-8cf2-dcac86d98fb9 Unable to share the vpn itself because of the policies implemented... https://pureinfotech.com/export-import-vpn-connections-windows-10/ Error 720 : ERROR_PPP_NO_PROTOCOLS_CONFIGURED  typically occurs if the WAN Miniport (IP) adapter is not bound correctly on your PC . This is true even though the WAN Miniport (IP) adapter might look healthy when you examine the Network adapters node in Device Manager.

Managing Windows Services - Delete/Add

 First things first, lets delete cause that's super easy and before I delete anything I make sure to create backups. What I'm looking to do is expand a system like topshelf where it can just manage it remotely for me but using devops can be tricky. //delete command sc.exe delete <service name> or Ps way Remove-Service -Name "TestService" Note: curious about the registry but its better to use sc.exe. Now for adding sc create asperacentral binPath= "C:\Program Files\Aspera\Enterprise Server\bin\Debug\asperacentral.exe" DisplayName= "Aspera Central" start= auto

Ubuntu Server: Cmd line Network Shared folder for Windows

Image
 Got tired of using filezila to do everything so this morning I set things up with Samba to allow me to share. Just a few notes along with this video that I think might be helpful for other devs. commands sudo apt-get install -y samba sudo ufw allow 139 sudo ufw allow 445 sudo service smbd status sudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf sudo chmod 777 shared_folder/ [guest] # This share allows anonymous (guest) access # without authentication! path = /shared_folder read only = no guest ok = yes guest only = yes I used the folder path at the root and probably will later add a user for security but for now I have what I need to get running. Doesnt seem as fast as filezilla but thats not a big deal. 

SQL Backup Database with Network folder

The time has come where I've been forced to work with SQL like a dba, and for once the pieces are falling in place.  https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3942207/how-can-i-backup-a-remote-sql-server-database-to-a-local-drive https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16491/restore-database-backup-over-the-network#:~:text=On%20the%20Server%20that%20you,bak%22 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10204480/sql-server-the-backup-set-holds-a-backup-of-a-database-other-than-the-existing https://dba.stackexchange.com/questions/28082/restore-backup-fails-file-db-cannot-be-restored-to-mdf-use-with-mov Generating a script took too long and wasnt helpful for what I needed since I'd still need to move it onto the server. We're talking about 200gb and plus... and to make matters worse time is important. Since the backups are created nightly on the server and I just need to restore the backup on another server it seems kinda of a waste to not be able to use it. https://stackoverflow.com/questions

Windows & Service Development

 As a consultant I've been able to start developing application and services at the lower levels of the operating system. Which is pretty interesting compared to what I use to do. I find myself doing the same thing with my web development.
