Hello IT Pro,

Welcome back to IT Pro Tuesday!

This week, we’re looking for your favorite tech websites to share with the community. Please let us know which ones help you do things more easily so you get better at your job!

As always, we’re updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy.

But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most-interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops and phones this week. EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

Popular Repost: Tool

Sharex is a screen capture, file sharing and productivity tool. According to the recommendation of stesha83, there is no question of the value of this productivity booster: "Sharex sharex sharex sharex sharex. Sharex. Also sharex. Capture desktop or region to any image or video format and process through any workflow before uploading it or saving anywhere you like. Lifechanging."

A Free Tool

GParted is a free disk partitioning tool that runs from outside of the operating system, meaning that you don't need an OS installed to use it, nor will you ever have to reboot to apply any changes. A fast, effective platform-independant partition editor. Thanks for this one go to our own Matt Frye.

A Blog

ipSpace.net is a blog exploring the benefits, drawbacks and real value of emerging networking technologies. Networking engineers, architects and designers will appreciate the thousands of helpful networking blog posts, articles and free videos offered by the site's author, Ivan Pepelnjak. Our appreciation to creddfltswap for the suggestion.

A Cheatsheet

Java Cheatsheet is a helpful Java notes cheatsheet that can refresh your Java fundamentals prowess. Thanks go to Sir_Herpicus for this resource.

A Tip

mikedopp offers this shortcut to get the latest Systeminternals:

for /F "usebackq tokens=1,2 delims==" %%i in (`wmic os get LocalDateTime /VALUE 2^>NUL`) do if
'.%%i.'=='.LocalDateTime.' set ldt=%%j
set ldt=%ldt:~0,4%-%ldt:~4,2%-%ldt:~6,2% %ldt:~8,2%:%ldt:~10,2%:%ldt:~12,6%
md   ".\Sysinternals\[%ldt%]" >nul 2>&1
@echo Local date is [%ldt%] >> ".\sysinternals\[%ldt%]\latest.txt"
set "command=dir"
set /p "command=type in a command: "
echo.command is: %command%
echo.press any key or ^<CTRL+C^> to abort . . .
>nul pause
%command%
wget.exe -nv --no-check-certificate -r -np -nd -N -P ".\Sysinternals\[%ldt%]\" --https-only
https://live.sysinternals.com/tools/ >> ".\systinternals\[%ldt%]\latest.txt"
