Note to self: do not update Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers on a HP Proliant ML10v2, unless I really, really need to.
I’ve become complacent when throwing drivers at devices and this is a reminder how easy it is to break things. I recently added a TPM to one of my servers and one of the fixed drives is classified as removable by Windows, which means I can’t use the TPM with it. There’s at least two ways to fix this, either install Intel RST drivers and configure it through the console, or change some registry keys to force them to fixed drives.
Generally, getting access to vehicle data is a pay-for-data experience – but snapshots are released each year to the public.
If you head to the Vehicle Statistics page on gov.uk you get statistics about vehicle licencing, excise duty evasion, vehicle roadworthiness testing and more. You’ll probably want to check out the index as there’s 76 files in the 2016 download alone, at various levels of granularity…
The one I’m going to look at today though, is:
Licensed Cars, Motorcycles, Light Goods Vehicles, Heavy Goods Vehicles, Buses and Other vehicles by make and model, Great Britain, annually from 1994, quarterly from 2008 Quarter 3 ; also United Kingdom from 2014 Quarter 4
AKA table VEH0120. Interestingly, Qlik Sense throws an “Unknown Error” message when trying to load “.ods” files so I converted it to Excel prior to loading.
This post looks at using Qlik Cloud (using a paid-for tier) to gather and analyse data from Google Analytics.
Qlik Cloud doesn’t allow user-added extensions, connectors or alterations (unlike the Qlik Sense Desktop and Enterprise products), but is free at the basic tier where you can load from uploaded files. As mentioned, I am using a “Plus” account which gives me access to more connectors.
