The age of the Digital Workplace Transformation

Image
Almost every week now I find myself discussing Digital Workplace Transformation with CIOs, CFOs and IT Managers alike.  It’s the new buzz word ‘on the street’ but what does it really mean? And is it relevant to your business?   Over the last four or five years, I’ve seen this ‘Transformation process’ evolve, from Business Transformation, to Desktop Transformation, Application Transformation & now Digital Workplace Transformation.  The approach is clearly a logical evolution of their predecessors but in my opinion, the drivers for these transformations are also now changing.  The days of business IT being driven by an application are long behind us, if anything the end user employee is now at the heart of these transformations, empowered to put forward their case for how their workplace and style affects their productivity and their overall wellbeing. 
So why is it important? The touchpoints that our employees have within their workplaces play a vital role in how they stay motivate…

Ethereum Node Connected - Stuck on Splash Screen!

Yet another issue with the Ethereum Wallet...

I've had Bitcoin and Litecoin wallets for years, none of them have caused me anywhere near as much pain as this one has, especially so in such a small space of time!

So here's how I got around this one! (On Mac).

Go to the Applications Directory within Finder, locate Ethereum Wallet.

Right click and go Show Package Contents, in here is a folder called MacOS and then an Exec within it.

Open a Terminal Window and drag the Exec file over the Terminal Window.

Hit Enter and it will launch the Wallet but in a terminal mode.

This will give you the view of exactly what is happening in the background and for some reason, allow the app to sync and open much quicker than just normal opening it within the GUI.

Ethereum Wallet Stuck on 99% or XX Blocks remaining!

Believe me when I say, this is one of the most frustrating things to happen!

Imagine this, I first get into Crypto - I buy 5 Ether through coinbase - download the Ethereum Wallet so I can have an offline Wallet store and without thinking about it - I got the wallet address and sent it all.

I then left my i7, 12GB, 1TB SSD Linux machine running with QoS enabled for bandwidth benefits for three days.. gradually getting more and more nervous.

I couldn't seem to get past the last few blocks, it would stall or just never really get anywhere!

Firstly, as an observation - I found that if you launch the application - you lose any form of syncing entirely, so leave it at the splash screen.

Secondly however if you really don't think its going to connect, then try these steps:

Go to the Develop Menu item, and change your Sync mode to "Light" it may say Beta on it but its ok.

Go to File > Backup > Accounts data

Rename ChainData to ChainData1 (or whatever you want).  Close…
