Better license assignment in O365


Since the last time I wrote about this original script for license assignment in Office365 cloud there were some changes. Now there are two parts of the script, for different groups of people in the company. And had to add timezone and language assignment also. And some more debugging output too.

For the first part of the script it didn’t change much, just added a line to assign the same timezone and language for everyone and changed a filter template.

Then I added a second part of the script, this one has a bit more logic. This group needs to be assigned the same timezone but different language (for the interface). By different language I mean Lithuanian or English.

What I use my raspberry for


Last year I bought RaspberryPI Model B at my local electronics store. As for most people, my goal was to have a miniature home server for various things, most of all a local cloud storage and a media server. I learned a great deal doing this and the RPI is very much capable of doing it all with memory to spare, despite what people were saying that it’s too slow and stuff.
Of course, if it’s just a cloud you want and don’t trust Dropbox, then a VPS is probably better (not necessarily cheaper though), but in my case I needed more than that, because I have some things like TVs, sat box and other stuff connected and so a VPS didn’t suffice.
In a nutshell, my RPI has heatsinks on it, is put in an acrylic case with a compatible 6v fan. The RPI is running Raspbian for an OS, MiniDLNA for media streaming, Seafile for a cloud, Samba for network drives, Transmission for the seedbox. I’ll talk about each of these and why I chose them.
