Making Google Calendar a responsive embed with Mobile support

Google Calendar is amazing, but the embed code is pretty old.  They haven't updated it in many years. Since everything is Mobile First today, I needed a way to display better on cell phones. The following code does the following: Define a Responsive Cal types so that it uses 100% of the frame Define a DeskContent and a PhoneContent sizes (with a width of 768 being the switch point)  Wrap all of it in the Responsive Call Div so it all resizes automatically Display the Month view of the calendar if it's a desktop resolution Display the Agenda view of the calendar if it's a mobile resolution I've formatted this so that it can be placed inline in your HTML file. The first Embed should be your calendar code set to the Month view. The second Embed should be your calendar code set to the Agenda view.

Find Stale computer accounts in Active Directory

So it's inevitable that if you run Active Directory long enough, you will have "stale" accounts. Stale accounts are accounts that no-one is using anymore, be it because the user is no-longer employed, it was a shared account that no-one uses anymore, or people just forgot the account is there. Yes, Yes, you should have good practices in place to prevent this kind of account stagnation, but it happens. The easiest way to find accounts is to use DSQuery: dsquery user domainroot -name * -inactive 18 Which will display the distinguished names of all users in only the current domain who have been inactive for 120 days (17+ weeks rounded to 18 weeks) or more. But what about computer accounts? dsquery computer -inactive 8 -limit 0 Searches for computers that have been inactive (stale) for the number of weeks that you specify (in this case 8 weeks) and displays all entries (Default is 100) But what if you want pretty output ?
