Make sure to make yourself heard when regulators decide whether your router belongs to you - or to your internet service provider 😱

The @fsfe shared their response to the current #BEREC draft, so it's easier for you to write your own statement. But hurry, only 22 hours left!

I wrote a powershell script to personalize the template paths for Office users and attached it to our Office GPO. It all worked well but every time the policy was pulled, the script window popped up and flashed for a second or so. Every user, every 90 minutes.
I tried "powershell.exe -WindowStyle Hidden", "| Out-Null", ">$nul 2&>1" and the tasks hidden flag but none worked.

Reason is that powershell.exe has a parameter -WindowStyle _with a possible value _Hidden which obviously doesn't work as expected / is broken. The official issue: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/3028

The workaround I found while reading the thread is:
ps-run.vbs
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") 
Set args = Wscript.Arguments 
For Each arg In args 
    objShell.Run("powershell -windowstyle hidden -executionpolicy bypass -noninteractive ""&"" ""'" & arg & "'"""),0 
Next

... and then call the powershell script you want to execute like this:
wscript "C:\Path\To\ps-run.vbs" "C:\Other\Path\To\your-script.ps1"

Now I can run my script out of the immediate scheduled task in my GPO without disturbing any user and config their session settings. Yay! Tested with Win10 x64 Build 1809, Win7 x86, Win7 x64.

'Early estimates anticipated the [daycare subsidy] program would generate 40 percent of its costs via increased income taxes from working parents. Instead, it generated income taxes to cover more than 100 percent of the cost. "In other words, it costs zero, or the cost is negative,” Fortin said. “The governments are making money out of the program.”'

Well who'd have thunk? #parenting #childcare #policy

Would you like to join us and other organisations to support the open letter on #FreeSoftware / #OpenSource #EU #Policy recommendations?

If so, see the instructions at the end of the letter.
 
After #Alabama, #Georgia, #Missouri and other states passed #pro-life #legislation, #businesses and state #governments across the country have made it clear that they are very upset about this and will use their #power to harm the people they #disagree with #politically.
In #California, a #politician is suggesting they use #tax #policy as a #weapon against states who don’t represent Californian #liberal values in 2019. California #Democratic Assemblywoman #Luz #Rivas said, “I think it really puts pressure on the industry to reconsider whether they want to do business in those states.”

There are plenty of businessmen who are pro-life, #pro-Second #Amendment and #pro-business. Alabama has done a good job of recruiting businesses with a #pro-growth climate, but it may be time for Alabama to start playing offense if states start to target Alabama over its policies.
I'm all for Alabama doing this.

I'm also all for Utah cutting off California's water supply:

Why should Utah support Murder? although there is that democrat Senator they got - Romney.....
