Build My Own PC Part I

I have been researching alot on building my own pc for atleast two years now and finally today I was able to start the process by purchasing the "Antec Nine Hundred ATX Gaming Case" for $90 with taxes.

To be honest many times I have went online and spend countless hours to research on Amazon, Best Buy and Micro Center and even add the systems to shopping cart but then at the last min I will just leave it all out. I guess today was the day for it.

Today I got a email from Micro Center about build your own pc month coupon and I guess it was the marketing genies that just made me take the step to buy the case so today at Micro Center I have also looked up other case's online and at store like "NZXT Guardian 921 ATX Mid-Tower Case" and I was almost going to buy "XION XION II Black Gaming Case with 450W Power Supply" but then asked the Micro Center guy as to what will be best and he said that "Antec" always beats "Xion" so had to change my mind, it's my first time building the pc so I don't want to just do things on my own and this guy Jorge does seems like he knows what he is talking about.

The case that I got does not have that jazz up look upfront like Xion II but it does seem to have great build inside and as I will keep on building will know how great it is.

One of the guy who was standing behind me in the line, looked what I was buying and said that's a great case, your going to love it, as I got the similar one "Antec 300" for my son, its a good case. So I was happy by the time I came to the counter to pay lolz :)

After reaching home I unpacked "Antec Nine Hundred ATX Gaming Case" and started to see how things are by opening up the case bolts and then I have brought my old dell pc and tried to move things out of it and put it in to my new case but it just didn't worked out very well, dell has everything so customized to their systems that it just doesn't work with the other cases, so I am going to buy everything new and really build my system from ground up.

Well that's it for today, it's almost 11:00 and just doesn't feel like the system is going any where so catch up later...

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files.

We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working.

The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for.

I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15302080/fastcgi-500-failure

Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again?

Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Today on Jan 11, 2018, I have received the Grow with Google Scholarship.

I am really excited because, previously I had joined Udacity to complete a Nano Degree, but due to price and family priorities, I had to abandon that goal.

Today, I feel like I am getting a second chance to give it another shot to completing my Nano Degree.
