Microsoft still hindering Outlook 2016 for MAC (OSX)

    Coming from the PC version of Outlook, the latest MAC client, 15 (Office 2016 for Mac) is still missing several key usability features. The only reason to not implement these well liked (and requested via the official UserVoice forum) features is to send a “haha, good luck” to businesses trying to use Macbooks.

    Missing functionality:

    1. Opening .MSG files.   Seriously?  2016 and Outlook can’t open it’s own messages?
    2. “Favorites” Folder options in the main window.
    3. The entire “To-Do Bar”.
    4. Quick Steps

    Literally unusable (for me. Slight exaggeration I admit, but it’s amazing how much slower it is to use the app without those features.).

    Fixing Cisco Wireless Client Association Failure ReasonCode: 102

    Have you seen this error in your Cisco WLC logs?

    Client Association Failure: MACAddress:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx Base Radio MAC:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx Slot: 0 User Name:UNKNOWN IP Addr: unknown Reason:Unknown ReasonCode: 102

    There is one link on the internet mentioning this error on the Cisco Support Forums, but I found it might have an alternative solution.

    Reboot the AP with the Base Radio MAC that is triggering this error.

    I highly doubt this is a silver bullet for this error, but when there’s little other documentation on this error online, I figure I’d share what my fix was.

    How to view Failed Backup Logs on a Synology NAS

    WARNING: This how-to is brief and technical. If you are unfamiliar with the terms SSH, VI/VIM, and CLI then this tutorial may be difficult for you.

    I have always hated that Synology does not have better logging for their backup jobs. Errors include “the backup failed.”  Thanks, logs!

    It turns out that Synology has these logs, but they are not accessible from the control panel. The logs are in the /var/log/messages file on the server.

    1. On your NAS -> Control Panel -> Terminal -> Turn on SSH.
    2. SSH into the NAS using your SSH client of choice. Login with username: root and password of your standard admin password. If you login as “admin” you will not have edit rights.
    3. Type ‘cd /var/log’ to get to the logs folder
    4. Type ‘vi messages’ to open the main log file.  You can type ‘ls’ or ‘dir’ to see the other log files within the folder. DIR will show you the last edit timestamps, to know what logs are relevant.
