Dell dock: monitors non-responsive after sleep

Dell dock connected to dual monitors (DVI -> HDMI, DisplayPort->HDMI)

I am setting up a new office with two HP 27xw monitors connected to a Dell e-dock. Everything is working quite nicely, except after going to sleep, the monitors are no longer visible to Windows. So far, the workaround is to press the physical undock button (releasing the laptop) and then re-dock the system. All while keeping the laptop’s lid/display closed. Also, to prevent this from happening I have set Windows 10 to never put displays to sleep when the

Show passwords in FileZilla [Portable]

FileZilla password listing

Recently I needed to regain access to a client’s FTP site where the password had been lost. Resetting the password was going to be problematic so instead we recovered the password by accessing FileZilla’s saved password list: For Portable FileZilla: FileZillaPortable\Data\settings\sitemanager.xml For regular FileZilla it should be similar to: %APPDATA%\filezilla\sitemanager.xml Open the sitemanager.xml file and browse to the Pass listing for the particular site that you need access to: This instructions are for Windows. I hope they are helpful to you Photo

Order SQL query manually when numeric string representation is out of order

Order/Rank by your own criteria

In some instances, doing a straight ORDER BY ASC (OR DESC) does not work as one might want: 0-50 101-200 201-300 301-400 401-500 501-600 51-100 601+ That is not how humans do it 😉 A way to get around this, is to add a new column and put in an ordering value, for instance: 1. 0-50 2. 51-100 3. 101-200 4. 201-300 5. 301-400 6. 401-500 7. 501-600 8. 601+ Now that is much better Here is a real world

SQL Server: list all user defined functions in a database

List of all user functions!

Recently I inherited a database project where many of the functions were not listed nor documented. Thankfully, with the help of the always useful stackoverflow, I was able to find the following snippet for displaying all user functions: select name, definition, type_desc FROM sys.sql_modules m INNER JOIN sys.objects o ON m.object_id=o.object_id where type_desc like ‘%function%’ via sql server – SQL list of all the user defined functions in a database – Stack Overflow. Very cool!
