How to enable the hidden Windows 10 Administrator Account

Devin Olson  December 20 2017 04:56:39 PM
ENABLE: net user administrator /active:yes from an elevated command prompt.
DISABLE: net user administrator /active:no from an elevated command prompt.

I posted this because I got tired of having to web search (google, bing, whatever) for it and every single result was filled with clickbait ads and a ton of tracking happy horseshit.  

My website has none of that crap, and never will.  

Still Relevant after all these years

    MWLUG 2017: Session Slides for AD117 - "M" is for Modernization

    Devin Olson  August 10 2017 10:58:30 AM


    This session was an absolute blast.  So very happy I was able present this along with the rest our our amazing team.

    As a developer do you find yourself struggling to keep up with the endless stream of technology options available? If so, please join us as we take you through the A to Z of application modernization technologies that you need to be aware of in order to extend the life of your Notes databases. We will step our way through the Modernization Alphabet starting at APIs before working our way through to Web Components, XPages, YAML, and Zapier. Our goal in this session will be to give you a better understanding of at least one technology you might not have previously considered that you should be using when you return from this conference.

    MWLUG 2017: Session Slides for AD101 - Big Data with Graph, IBM Domino, and OpenNTF API

    Devin Olson  August 10 2017 10:45:07 AM


    I was very honored to have been able to present this session at MWLUG 2017 in Washington, DC.

    What do IBM Watson, Bluemix, LinkedIn, Facebook, eBay, Twitter, Wal-Mart, eHarmony, and Amazon all have in common? They all have Billions of records; and they all use Graph technology to manage those records. Graph excels at quickly processing huge numbers of records. Even if don’t fully understand how Graph databases work, you will want to attend this session to learn how the amazing capabilities of Graph that are already built into the OpenNTF Domino API (ODA) can EASILY deliver unique solutions for your own Notes/Domino environment. This session will introduce the fundamentals of Graph, explain how graph can be applied to NSF data using the ODA, and demonstrate some techniques to implement graph on your next project.

    Brown Belt vs. Black Belt Administrators / Programmers

    Devin Olson  July 14 2017 12:43:28 PM
    Comparing a "Brown Belt" to a "Black Belt" Programmer or Administrator

    Both can wield extreme power, but the Black Belt has wisdom about what NOT do do that the Brown Belt has yet to master.

    OpenNTF Documentation Posted

    Devin Olson  April 11 2017 12:37:20 PM
    The OpenNTF documentation (javadoc) stuff is really nice, and quite helpful.

    The only problem is I can never seem to find it when I need it, especially when working in multiple VMs on multiple machines.  

    This leads to going and finding the download (and I can never remember where I put it).  Then I have to extract the zip file, and navigate through the extracted content to find index.html, just so I can load it up and then finally hunt down the thing I'm interested in.   I was thinking it sure would be nice if somebody put this online in an easy to find place.  Then I remembered I have this site called Learning XPages.  

    So, yeah.

    I'm feeling a bit sheepish for not having done this already.  

    The links are over there on the right, under the "Links" heading.  

    You're welcome.

    I am very honored to have been selected as a speaker for IBM Connect 2017.

    My session is DEV-1533: Big Data with Graph, IBM Domino and OpenNTF API

    Session Description:
    What do IBM Watson, Bluemix, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Wal-Mart, Match.com, eBay, eHarmony, and Amazon all have in common? They all have billions of records; and they all use Graph technology to manage those records. Graph excels at quickly processing huge volumes of data. Even if you don’t fully understand how Graph databases work, you will want to attend this session to learn how their amazing capabilities that are already built into the OpenNTF Domino API (ODA) can EASILY deliver unique solutions for your own Notes/Domino environment.

    (CrossPost from redpillnow.com) IBM Traveler and Verse: Device Security and Administration Overview

    Devin Olson  November 8 2016 08:34:31 AM

    There currently seems to be a great deal of confusion about IBM Traveler and Verse with regard to device security and administration. The necessary overview information is available from IBM, but is rather dispersed and somewhat difficult to track down in a single concise location. This document will attempt to answer some of the most common points of confusion and concern for those considering a Traveler deployment in their Domino environment -without necessarily having IBM Connect or Cloud solutions in place.
