奋斗

新东方以英语教学立校,但创始人俞敏洪曾经两度高考落榜,第一次高考英语成绩只有33分。阿里巴巴的创始人马云同样两度名落孙山,第一次高考数学仅得1分。从高考的落榜生,到企业的创始人,他们的故事让人感慨:一个人改变命运的最佳法宝,就是奋斗。

人 世间的美好梦想,只有通过奋斗才能实现;生命里的一切辉煌,只有通过奋斗才能铸就。在赓续千年的文化瑰宝里,“三军可夺帅也,匹夫不可夺志也”、“老骥伏 枥,志在千里;烈士暮年,壮心不已”等价值追求,鼓舞着仁人志士生命不息、奋斗不止。“卧薪尝胆”、“悬梁刺股”、“闻鸡起舞”等故事更是家喻户晓,让无 数人从识文断字那一天起,就懂得了奋斗的价值和意义。

宏大建构如国家的复兴之梦,具体而微如百姓的幸福之梦,奋斗都应该是筑梦圆梦的底色。 然而现在,“不相信奋斗了”却也让一些人奉为信条,“靠奋斗不如靠政府”成为一些人的生存哲学。有的秉持着“奋斗无用论”,认为向上流动渠道不畅,阶层固 化、社会板结,奋斗的结果还是铩羽而归;有的认为靠个人奋斗不如靠经营关系,有关系、有门道、关键位子上有自己的人,是获得成功的终南捷径;有的抱着“等 靠要”的思想,总想着免费午餐,总盼着天上掉下个“林妹妹”,总惦记着一夜暴富、不劳而获……凡此种种,莫不让人唏嘘,假如人生没有奋斗,生活还有什么趣 味?

正如一首歌唱的那样,“不经历风雨怎么见彩虹,没有人能随随便便成功。”否定奋斗的价值和意义,实际上是在为放弃努力找借口,为得过且 过寻安慰。如果投机取巧的心态占据内心深处,一夜成功的欲望充斥想象空间,不仅个人会失去前行动力,社会也会因此丢掉生机活力。无论是行业发展、企业崛 起,还是家庭和睦、个人前途,都需要投入聪明才智,都需要付出真诚劳动,个人奋斗才是最终决定力量。个人若不努力,即便机会再多、所供者足,也只会白白浪 费;即便平台再好、所靠者多,也不会终有所成。

“如 果额头终将刻上皱纹,你只能做到,不让皱纹刻在你心上。”电影《中国合伙人》中的这句台词让不少人感叹不已,正因它巧妙地诉说着,奋斗的人生不会老。有人 感叹爱迪生发明蓄电池失败了25000次,爱迪生却回答说,我发现了24999种蓄电池不管用的原因。个人奋斗很难一帆风顺,不会一蹴而就,更不可能梦想 一夜成真,可怕的不是挫折,而是一遇到挫折就戛然而止、怀疑奋斗,甚至抱怨社会。人间万事出艰辛,越是美好的梦想,越需要付出艰辛努力,因为,梦想就是一 种让你感到坚持就是幸福的东西。

奋斗,说明我们没有止步不前,还有改变命运的雄心壮志;没有随波逐流,还有实现梦想的豪情万丈;没有自暴自弃,还有追求幸福的星语心愿。“自信人生二百年,会当击水三千里”,经过一番拼搏奋斗,在两鬓如霜、回首往事时,我们起码还能笑慰平生:这辈子,至少我奋斗过!

Stop Windows from Restarting Your Computer After Updates

 

 
 

Stop Windows from Restarting Your Computer After Updates

Sometimes, Windows downloads important updates and decides it’s going to restart your computer whether you like it or not. Here’s how to disable that behavior.

This has been part of Windows for a long time, and while Microsoft tried to fix it in Windows 8, the annoyance still remains. When you see that screen that says your computer’s going to restart in 15 minutes, you just grit your teeth and accept it.

But, there’s actually an easy way to fix this—and it works in Windows 7, too. You just need to make a small tweak to the registry:

  1. Head to the Start menu or screen and type “regedit” (no quotes). Start the Registry Editor that pops up.
  2. Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

    On many computers, you won’t see the “WindowsUpdate” key. To create it, right-click on the “Windows” key in the sidebar and go to New > Key. Name the key WindowsUpdate, then right-click on that key and create a new one called AU.

  3. Click on the AU key and, in the right pane, right-click on the empty space and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  4. Name the new DWORD:
    NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers

    Double-click on the new DWORD and give it a value of 1.

  5. Reboot your machine and from now on, Windows will not force you to reboot after installing updates. Of course, when you install updates, you should still reboot your computer—and that responsibility is now on you—but this makes sure Windows doesn’t catch you by surprise.

Again, this registry key has been around for a long time, and should work in Windows 7 as well (but we thought it was worth revisiting for Windows 8). You can also perform the same task with the Group Policy Editor if you’re on Windows 8 Pro. Hit the link below to see how.

How to manually undelete objects in a deleted object’s container

To manually undelete objects in a deleted object’s container,   follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, click Run, and then type ldp.exe.
    Note If the Ldp utility is not installed, install the support tools from the Windows Server 2003 installation CD.
  2. Use the Connection menu in Ldp to perform the connect operations and the bind operations to a Windows Server 2003 domain controller.
    Specify domain administrator credentials during the bind operation.
  3. On the Options menu, click Controls.
  4. In the Load Predefined list, click Return Deleted Objects.
    Note The 1.2.840.113556.1.4.417 control moves to the Active Controls window.
  5. Under Control Type, click Server, and the click OK.
  6. On the View menu, click Tree, type the distinguished name path of the deleted objects container in the domain where the deletion occurred, and then click OK.
    Note The distinguished name path is also known as the DN path. For example, if the deletion occurred in the contoso.com domain, the DN path would be the following path:

    cn=deleted Objects,dc=contoso,dc=com
  7. In the left pane of the window, double click the Deleted Object Container.
    Note As a search result of Idap query, only 1000 objects are returned by  default.  Fot example, if more than 1000 objects exist in the Deleted  Objects container, not all objects appear in this container.  If your  target object does not appear, use ntdsutil,  and then set the maximum number by using maxpagesize to get the search results .
  8. Double-click the object that you want to undelete or to reanimate.
  9. Right-click the object that you want to reanimate, and then click Modify.
    Change the value for the isDeleted attribute and the DN path in a single Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) modify operation. To configure the Modify dialog, follow these steps:

    1. In the Edit Entry Attribute box, type isDeleted.
      Leave the Value box blank.
    2. Click the Delete option button, and then click Enter to make the first of two entries in the Entry List dialog.
      Important Do not click Run.
    3. In the Attribute box, type distinguishedName.
    4. In the Values box, type the new DN path of the reanimated object.
      For example, to reanimate the JohnDoe user account to the Mayberry OU, use the following DN path:

      cn=JohnDoe,ou=Mayberry,dc=contoso,dc=com

      Note If you want to reanimate a deleted object to its original container, append the value of the deleted object’s lastKnownParent attribute to its CN value, and then paste the full DN path in the Values box.

    5. In the Operation box, click REPLACE.
    6. Click ENTER.
    7. Click to select the Synchronous check box.
    8. Click to select the Extended check box.
    9. Click RUN.
  10. After you reanimate the objects, click Controls on  the Options menu, click the Check Out button to remove (1.2.840.113556.1.4.417) from the Active Controls box list.
  11. Reset user account passwords, profiles, home directories and group memberships for the deleted users.
    When the object was deleted, all the attribute values except SID, ObjectGUID, LastKnownParent and SAMAccountName were stripped.
  12. Enable the reanimated account in Active Directory Users and Computers.
    Note The reanimated object has the same primary SID as it had before the deletion, but the object must be added again to the same security groups to have the same level of access to resources. The first release of Windows Server 2003 does not preserve the sIDHistory attribute on reanimated user accounts, computer accounts, and security groups. Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 does preserve the sIDHistory attribute on deleted objects.
  13. Remove Microsoft Exchange attributes and reconnect the user to the Exchange mailbox.
    Note The reanimation of deleted objects is supported when the deletion occurs on a Windows Server 2003 domain controller. The reanimation of deleted objects is not supported when the deletion occurs on a Windows 2000 domain controller that is subsequently upgraded to Windows Server 2003.
    Note If the deletion occurs on a Windows 2000 domain controller in the domain, the lastParentOf attribute is not populated on Windows Server 2003 domain controllers.
  14. Open up Active Directory Users & Computers pointed to the domain the computer account resides in
    From the “View” pull-down menu, make sure that “Advanced Features” is checked
    Navigate to the part of your organizational unit (OU) structure where the computer account for this server resides
    Open the Properties for the computer object
    Choose the “Attribute Editor” tab on the Properties dialog box
    Check the Attributes dNSHostName & servicePrincipalName – anywhere that a fully qualified hostname is specified (e.g. myserver.mydomainname.com), make sure that the entry matches the hostname you have configured when you go here on your server: Start -> Computer -> Right-Click, Properties -> Change Settings (under “Computer name, domain… settings”) -> Full Computer Name
    As an example, for a fictitious W2K8 R2 server whose Full Computer Name is “srv1.mydomainname.com”, these attribute/value pairs should be in Active Directory:dNSHostName:
    srv1.mydomainname.comservicePrincipalName:
    HOST/SRV1
    HOST/srv1.mydomainname.com
    RestrictedKrbHost/SRV1
    RestrictedKrbHost/srv1.mydomainname.com
    TERMSRV/SRV1
    TERMSRV/srv1.mydomainname.com

    If you find that any of these entries is incorrect, go ahead and fix them; once they all align correctly try logging in again.  After you make any changes, please remember that it may take up to a few minutes for those changes to replicate between all of the Active Directory domain controllers.  Adjusting these values usually works to get me past the error without a reboot in our environment.

Can’t open minimized windows

Did you ever have a 2nd display connected? The windows may be on the “other” display.
I haven’t had two displays on a Win7 system, so not sure of the exact location, but should be someplace in here:
Right click the Desktop, click Personalize
Click Display in the lower left
Click Change display settings
See if it shows two displays.

You can also try moving the windows with the keyboard
Click one of the icons so the program is active. Watch closely, you may see it head off screen when it restores, might be able to tell which direction it is off the screen.
Press ALT+Spacebar
Press M
use the arrow keys to move left, right, up, down, see if you can move it back on screen. Press Enter to stop moving.

Lotus Notes liberation: How to forward everything to Gmail

The first and most complicated step is to tell Notes to send a copy of all of your incoming mail to Gmail. To begin that, click the Tools icon at the left side of the Notes window, click the Rules icon that will appear below it, and then click the “New Rule” button towards the top of the screen.

In the “New Rule” dialog box, click the first menu under the “Create condition” heading, scroll all the way down and select “All Documents,” and click the “Add” button. Select the menu to the right of “AND,” starting with “sender,” and scroll down to select “All Documents” there too. Under the “Specify Actions” heading, choose “send copy to” and enter the destination e-mail address in the “to:” field. Then click the “Add Action” button and click the “OK” button at the bottom of the window to activate this rule. The results should look like what you see in the screen capture here, only with your address included–unless you’d prefer to send all your e-mail to me. (Using a personal domain name instead of a Gmail address, as shown in that screengrab, is fairly easy to do with a special kind of free Gmail account called Google Apps Standard Edition.)

You’ll now have every incoming message copied intact to Gmail, without any weird re-formatting or any other sign that it’s been relayed. But at the same time, messages will continue to arrive in Notes as they did before.
