You can check out pics of our new office here in an article that the ABJ just posted! So much roomier than our old place.
Software maker Spiceworks Inc. has moved into a new headquarters — its fourth since launching in 2006.

For my Throwback Thursday, I did a little write up on Fallout 3​ when attempting to play it on Windows 8.1. All the text is below the but purty version (with pics) can be found at:

http://www.seandahlberg.com/throwback-thursday-return-to-vault-101-fallout-3/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

When +Fallout 4 was announced on Jun 2nd, I was hoping that Bethesda would do much like when they announced Skyrim and the game would be coming later this year. Lucky for me (and everyone!), I was right. But even then, I figured it wouldn’t be announced at E3 that it was available then (but what a way to drop the mic at the end of the Bethesda presentation if they did that) and I needed to get my Fallout fix a little earlier. I remembered I still have my original disc when I bought the game.

Wow, remember when Microsoft was making the big “Games for Windows” push… but anyways, I’m lazy and bought Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/22370/ ) on Steam which includes all the add-ons. I installed the game, hit play, and then… nothing.

Which is when it dawned on me – Fallout 3 was released back in 2008. Back when I was still on Windows XP (because, let’s face it, I was not a fan of Windows Vista). We’ve had Win7, 8, and 8.1 release since then so a game made for an old OS is bound to have a few issues. Luckily, I found a great post in the Steam Community by BenWah that helped me out: ULTIMATE Fallout 3 Setup Guide READ THIS! ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/22370/discussions/0/828937546147175081/ ).

His post goes into a lot great detail but if you’re on Windows 8.1, these are the steps I took:

First, I updated for Games for Windows ( http://download.gfwl.xboxlive.com/content/gfwl-public/redists/production/xliveredist.msi )

Then I installed the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch by BenWah and Hairylegs ( http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/19122/? ).

While this got my game up and running, I noticed I’d get this weird issue where my game would randomly minimize and I couldn’t get it back without forcing the task to stop and reloading. Which is a pain. But again, modders to the rescue! I found Fake Fullscreen Mode Windowed – Alt Tab Fix by BUDA20 ( http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/16001/? ) that works like a dream.

Now I’m back into Fallout 3 and will do a playthrough while I eagerly (OH SO EAGERLY) await Fallout 4. Or you could take the easy route like #CiraCorellia​  and play it on a console… but seriously, #PCMasterRace . You can do so much more on the PC, even get a high res mod!

I imagine this is old news to most of you but wanted to point out that +reddit updated their harassment policy. Seems like business as usual but, as you might imagine, some people aren't quite so happy about it. Although a lot of that appears to be around the lack of information on what exactly happens when someone breaks the rules.
Interim CEO Ellen Pao says the site wants to encourage a variety of views, within limits. "It's not our site's goal to be a completely free-speech platform. We want to be a safe platform," she says.

Just finished the quiz and here's what I got:

- The Encryptor! Defender of data, enforcer of password rules, remover of sticky notes with passwords stuck to monitors.
- Archnemesis: The Receptionist Who Clicks on Everything -- Holds the world record for malware discovered (unintentionally).
- Secret Lair: Techno Cave -- Where do you get those wonderful toys? To the Techno Cave!
- Superhero Weapon: Stress Relief Ball -- This palm sweat–soaked bit of foam keeps your mind calm and your immune system strong. (It's a veritable Petri dish.)
- Weakness: Zombies -- Something about having your brains devoured by the undead makes you lose your head.
- Sidekick: The Confuser -- Uses complex technical jargon to end uncomfortable conversations immediately.

Happy SysAdmin Day​ (coming soon to a Friday near you) everyone!
Discover what your IT pro superpower is, and what a day in the life of SuperYou might look like (the results might surprise you!). The journey of an IT pro is a treacherous one.

I think it's a rarity but I fear I have a few, ahem, friend or two that probably fit the Askhole persona.
