Step 1. Write PowerShell script to send email to yourself
The first step in setting up alerting for HWiNFO64 is to
write a PowerShell script (.ps1) that sends a customized email to your email
address or phone number. Here are the parameters that will need to be set for
$EmailFrom = Enter
the email address from which the message will originate from. Place in quotations
Note: The email address in this
field does not have to be one that is active. You can use a dummy email address
$EmailTo = Enter the email address which the message will be sent to. Place in quotations (“”).
Last December, I ended up pulling off building myself a gaming rig with the latest Intel Coffee Lake i5 CPU (my system requirements do not warrant an i7 at this time) and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti that was released a month prior. This is my main computer for everything that I do, such as playing the latest PC games, emulating video games from the past, doing work on this website/blog posts, virtualization, and doing college work.
Welcome to my blog, which will serve as the most updated and largest portion of my personal website. In this blog, I will discuss on various topics pertinent to the Information Technology field such as PC gaming, computer hardware and software, major cybersecurity incidents, and general professional stuff. I will also talk about tips pertaining to going to college.
I will often post an entry at least once a month at a minimum. Depending on how much free time I have away from school or work, I will definitely post more often. Most of the topics that I will be discussing on here will be what is on my mind for the month, or whatever I am in the mood to write about at this very time.
Other than the standard blog post, I will also share any interesting articles or videos pertaining to the IT field on this blog as well.
This is a brief post, but it serves as the inaugural post for this blog. This blog can also be reached at blog.braedensantos.com.
