IT Friends, Let me start by saying I am not an IT professional. Our company recently changed to a cloud based environment. We are seeing substantial efficiency loss in the calculation times of our templates (mostly excel based). It's typically only seconds per calculation, but adds up throughout the day. My current desktop has the following set up: Windows 10, Office 16, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @3.60 GHz 16.0GB RAM 64-bit operating system. I am being told that no cloud environment can match the processing speed for excel calculations of my desktop. I find that very hard to believe. Is …

In the java policy file what will happen if we comment out //permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "stopThread";. My understanding is that we can't call thread.stop() anywhere in the program am i rite? If we call it should say "Access denied"... If any Text area is built with AWT closing it by clicking on "X" on the window will call this thread.stop() method? Please correct me if am wrong..

Hi all, Here's the problem I have. I am designing a website in HTML and I want to include a chat system using a Java applet. I have written a small example applet that just connects to my server and gets the users that are currently online. The applet works when I run it in Eclipse but I tried to launch it from the browser and I got a SocketPermission exception. I did some reading on the subject and found out that I need to make some changes to the java.policy file in order to grant my applet access to …

Hello, I am looking for help in putting together a social marketing policy/procedure for my organization. Everything I have found online has been created for companies that are allowing/not allowing their employees to use social networking. That is not what I need. I am looking for a more of how to template of procedures. We are a family resource center so the policy should include a template on postings. Any thoughts? I hope I explained what I need correctly.

I run a small computer lab of 10 laptops using Windows 7 x64 Enterprise edition. In order to prevent users from changing the settings, I have created a Group Policy Object that restricts access to the Control Panels, among other things. When I built the GPO just the way I need it, I found out that I couldn't transfer the object. The new computer simply does not have the permissions to use the object and I haven't been able to figure out a work around. My research suggests that this problem is usually solved by enforcing group policy through use …

I have been asked by one of my clients to draft a social media use policy for employees. My client asked for there to be two sections, one for in office and one for out of office. I am curious to know if anyone has encountered corporate policies for social media (or any other activities) outside of the office, specifically in terms of non-business hours.

Mashable is reporting that the results of a survey of 1.400 CIOs from companies with 100+ employees (conducted by Robert Half Associates) show that over 50% of companies totally block employees from accessing Facebook, Twitter and MySpace while at work. Of the companies that do not block access, 10% limit the use by employees for business reasons only and the rest have no restrictions. Also, of the companies that allow unfettered social media access, 8% have fired staff for abusing the privilige. What does this all mean. One can make the broad assumption that adoption of Social Media in the …
