Raspberry Pi / Boot from USB
« Last post by norman on January 05, 2021, 07:21:17 am »
The Pi 4 can boot from a USB stick instead of the SD card.

The USB must be USB 3.

Just insert the USB then copy the existing SD card using the SD card copy utility.

Shutdown. Remove the SD card. Power up. Boots much faster.

Miscellaneous / EU website converting to UK
« Last post by norman on December 13, 2020, 09:25:22 pm »
With the upcoming possibility of our EU website being turned off in the Brexit row on 01/01/2021 we have started to upgrade our site to replace it.

The loss of the site is beyond our control and we see it purely as a political action by Nominet and the EU. The UK has always been part of Europe and will continue to do so after the end of the year. We are not going anywhere.

All downloads are now available on the UK site.

TPN Invoicing / Cannot log in

Check the top line of the screen. It tells you the current data directory between the square brackets. Is this correct? Or does it incorrectly say C:\TPNINVG
If it is simply wrong then you can alter the Data Directory by clicking on the [...] symbol on the Login page (to the right of Password). You can then select the correct directory.
If this is NOT the case then get to the Login page. Login as a user called manager with a password of borg. You will get to the Name Table.
Is your username missing or the table blank? Click on Insert and add yourself as a user. Add a password. Set the User Level to Operator and the Restrictions to N. Now click on the Close button.
You should now be able to login.

Check that you are in the right Data Directory by viewing some of the data. It should not be blank.

If you need to change the directory go into Utilities and Data Path then simply alter it.

Loadmaster / Sudden message on startup of NETWORK ERROR
« Last post by norman on September 07, 2020, 01:00:03 pm »
Symptoms - Your data is on a network drive. Everything has been working fine and you have made no changes. All of a sudden on program start you get a NETWORK ERROR message and the data directory changes to the local C: drive.

Cause - this appears to be due to a change in the networking component of the Windows 10 update 2004 which occurs automatically and without notice to you.

Solution - download and install version or later as this has been rewritten to get around this problem.

You may need to examine this article -

This event indicates that the server tried to log on the user as an unauthenticated guest but was denied by the client. Guest logons do not support standard security features such as signing and encryption. Therefore, guest logons are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks that can expose sensitive data on the network. Windows disables insecure (nonsecure) guest logons by default. Microsoft recommends that you do not enable insecure guest logons.
