PS4 fails to update 6.72 with SU-30625-6

That awkward moment right, you sit down, ready to play... and no one appears ‘online’ you know this can’t be true, how can no one else be online, so you examine...oh wait, yup, update due.  Only this time, you get the failure code SU-30625-6 when pressing update.

It seems Sony May well have messed up the update, or a correlation I found for me, my PS4 tried to do it whilst in sleep mode.

It’s a simple fix however so worry not :).

Navigate to Notifications, highlight the update, press Options button and select delete.

Now go back and try again, it will download just fine and work a treat in 20 minutes or less.

Happy Gaming!

Activation error DISM on Windows Server - could not activate

Ever tried to activate an Eval download of Windows Server and got an activation failure? Or got an error 50?

The command most commonly referred to online and in Microsoft guides is as below:

Firstly, make sure your version is actually genuine and you're licensing the right version too.

Run the following command:

DISM /online /Get-TargetEditions

This will reveal what you can upgrade Eval too, in a majority of cases we'll use Server Standard as an example but this refers to datacenter too.

Run the below to license your server:
DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula

If this still doesn't work, something that I spent hours of my life one evening figuring out... is that a command window that isn't elevated will produce an error 50, unknown error and/or a activation couldn't be completed.

Yes, its truly that simple! Elevate Command Prompt and try again, 9/10 this will fix the issue for you!

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.
