The country or region home location in Windows, referred to as geographic location (GeoID), indicates the country or region that you are in. Some software, including Windows, may provide you with additional content for a particular location. Some services provide you with local information such as news and weather.
If you move or go to a different country or region, you may want to change your home location (GeoID). You can switch back to your original country or region at any time.
This tutorial will show you different ways on how to change the country or region home location for your account in Windows 10.
Right now, when you want to play Xbox games on your PC you have a few options: mouse/keyboard, Xbox controller using a cord, a wireless dongle or using Bluetooth (in the case of the most recent version of the controller). Bluetooth is more ideal, for controllers, because you don’t have to have a doohickey sticking out of your machine. Yet, Xbox is now moving forward with Xbox Wireless. What this means is that you’re able to connect your Xbox controller to a PC that has Xbox connectivity built right into it.
The newly announced Surface Studio is such a device. While designed, primarily, for creation (think artists, musicians, etc) the specs in the Studio make it ideal for gaming. In fact, Xbox Wireless is built into the base. When you’re ready to game, simply connect your controller and let the ‘pew, pew!” fly.
Here’s some other key benefits of Xbox Wireless:
- Gamers can connect up to eight (8) devices at the same time.
- Includes the ability to hear wireless stereo sound through the headsets.
- Support for accessories from companies like Astro, Turtle Beach, and others.
- Currently supports Xbox controllers, Xbox One consoles, Xbox wireless adapter.

The update was released outside of Adobe’s regular patch cycle.Â The singled vulnerability fixed by this update, CVE-2016-7855, has already been exploited in targeted attacks against Windows.Â Windows, Linux and Mac versions are affected, including versions embedded in Chrome and Edge/Internet Explorer 11. Please expedite this update, and review that Flash does not start automatically in your browser but only if enabled by the user for a specific site. Consider removing Flash whenever possible.
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-128 – Critical:
John Maxwell shares an excellent article on the five levels of Leadership Development
Level 1 â€” Position — The lowest level of leadershipâ€”the entry level, if you willâ€”is Position. Itâ€™s the only level that requires no ability or effort to achieve. At Level 1, people only follow if they believe that they have to.
Level 2 â€” Permission — Level 2 is based on relationship. At this level, people choose to follow because they want to. When you like people and treat them as individuals who have value, you begin to develop positive influence with them. Trust grows, which usually leads to respect.
Level 3 â€” Production — The best leaders know how to motivate their people to get things done! On this level, leaders who produce results build their influence and credibility.
Level 4 â€” People Development — Level 4 can be summed up in one word: reproduction. Your goal at this level is to identify and develop as many leaders as you can by investing in them and helping them grow.Â The reason is simple: When there are more leaders, more of the organizationâ€™s mission can be accomplished.
Level 5 â€” Pinnacle — The highest level of leadership is also the most challenging to attain. It requires longevity as well as intentionality. You simply canâ€™t reach Level 5 unless you are willing to invest your life into the lives of others for the long haul. But if you stick with it, if you continually focus on both growing yourself at every level, and developing leaders who are willing and able to develop other leaders, you may find yourself at the Pinnacle.

A lo largo de mi carrera como profesional en portales de colaboraciĂłn he encontrado algunos usuarios expertos en Excel capaces de construir en un santiamĂ©n complejos anĂˇlisis de datos o aplicaciones que realizan cĂˇlculos basados en el uso de fĂłrmulas. En cuanto a SharePoint se refiere, si ven atractivo el hecho de que ahora pueden compartir su hoja de cĂˇlculo con otros y de alguna forma hacer accesible su hoja de Excel para que otros re utilicen su trabajo. Sin embargo sigue siendo el mismo modelo, seguimos usando a SharePoint como repositorio de datos, usuario tendrĂa que descargar la hoja de cĂˇlculo y usarla.
He grabado un breve video donde explico el uso de parĂˇmetros en plantillas de Excel para poder exponer su hoja de cĂˇlculo en Office 365 SharePoint Online en una pĂˇgina web accesible a los empleados de su empresa y usar su hoja como si fuese una especie de aplicaciĂłn. EL uso de parĂˇmetros en Excel permite exponer celdas de la hoja de cĂˇlculo como parĂˇmetros que cualquier usuario o aplicaciĂłn puede usar para enviar datos a nuestra hoja de cĂˇlculo.
Espero este pequeĂ±a demostraciĂłn le permita a usted potencializar aĂşn mĂˇs su experiencia y conocimiento de Excel.

A brand new way for hackers shutdown INTERNET emerged earlier in the week when a DYN a key internet hosting company suffered a massive DDoS attack.Â They recovered quickly, as a new approach of manipulating a new evolving technology called IOT (Internet of things) was discovered
I also donâ€™t want to get too far into this post without:
1.Acknowledging the tremendous efforts of Dynâ€™s operations and support teams in doing battle with whatâ€™s likely to be seen as an historic attack.
2.Acknowledging the tremendous support of Dynâ€™s customers, many of whom reached out to support our mitigation efforts even as they were impacted. Service to our customers is always our number one priority, and we appreciate their understanding as that commitment means Dyn is often the first responder of the internet.
3.Thanking our partners in the technology community, from the operations teams of the worldâ€™s top internet companies, to law enforcement and the standards community, to our competition and vendors, weâ€™re humbled and grateful for the outpouring of support.
Attack Timeline — Starting at approximately 7:00 am ET, Dyn began experiencing a DDoS attack. While itâ€™s not uncommon for Dynâ€™s Network Operations Center (NOC) team to mitigate DDoS attacks, it quickly became clear that this attack was different (more on that later). Approximately two hours later, the NOC team was able to mitigate the attack and restore service to customers. Unfortunately, during that time, internet users directed to Dyn servers on the East Coast of the US were unable to reach some of our customersâ€™ sites, including some of the marquee brands of the internet. We should note that Dyn did not experience a system-wide outage at any time â€“ for example, users accessing these sites on the West Coast would have been successful.
What we know — At this point we know this was a sophisticated, highly distributed attack involving 10s of millions of IP addresses. We are conducting a thorough root cause and forensic analysis, and will report what we know in a responsible fashion. The nature and source of the attack is under investigation, but it was a sophisticated attack across multiple attack vectors and internet locations. We can confirm, with the help of analysis from Flashpoint and Akamai, that one source of the traffic for the attacks were devices infected by the Mirai botnet. We observed 10s of millions of discrete IP addresses associated with the Mirai botnet that were part of the attack.
