Adventures With A Raspberry Pi: Series Index

Raspberry PiI’ve looked at the Raspberry Pi a number of times over the years, but never bought one as I both lacked a convincing use case and have virtually zero experience with non-Windows operating systems. However, more recently, I have reached my limit with how intrusive online adverts have become and have finally bought a Raspberry Pi and installed Pi-Hole.

I have a number of posts about my adventures with a Raspberry PI in which I am going to be looking at how to assemble and install the Raspberry PI as well as my experiences with Pi-Hole and probably some other software.

Implementing SalesHQ Portal: Portal Deployment on Azure

SalesHQ PortalThis post is part of a series on Implementing SalesHQ Portal, which is one of the GP Elementz Portals from my new employer, ISC Software Solutions.

This is a step which ISC Software will perform, but some information is required for this to be accomplished. In the last post in this series, I showed how to register a company with SalesHQ; this generated a unique GUID for each company.

For ISC Software to deploy the portal, they need the Company ID for each company registered.

Run the script below against your Elementz database, to extract the CompanyID GUIDs:

SELECT DynamicsDB,CompanyDB,CompanyId FROM CustomerPortalCompany

Once you have this information reply back to the Azure settings email you received before installing the connector service.

Disable Push Notifications In Vivaldi

Vivaldi BrowserThere are many irritating features of browsing the web with push notifications being the current one which is bugging the crap out of me. So many sites are asking to allow push notifications and I can rarely, if ever, see any reason why anyone would allow them.

I migrated to the Vivaldi browser a while ago which is based on Chromium. This means it has access to the Chrome extensions store and also a lot of settings in common with Chrome. One of these is the ability to block notifications without being prompted.

I’ve searched for the setting in the Vivaldi GUI without success, so need to fall back on the settings page address of chrome://settings/content. Select the Notifications section (ringed in red):

Vivaldi Content Settings page

Install New Theme In Notepad++

Notepad++I did a post a little while ago on changing the theme in Notepad++, which was brought about by preferring to use dark themes in a lot of apps (such as Outlook.com and here on azurecurve|Ramblings of a Dynamics GP Consultant). With Notepad++ I’ve found that I don’t actually like any of the default dark themes so took a look round to see if I could add a new one.

Fortunately, it is possible and there are a number of themes people have created which can be downloaded and used. In this post, I’m going to show how to install and use a new theme.

The theme I have decided to try is Dracula:

To start the service, open Services (the easiest way is to launch the Run prompt (Win+R), type services and hit return). Scroll down and find the Elementz CustomerHQ Connector service, right-click and select Properties:

Servies window with Elementz CustomerHQ Connector selected
