CSS Grid Layout in Stupid Internet Explorer 11 using -ms styles

How To Get Your Web Pages to Display CSS Grids in IE and Chrome All of us web developers know that IE 10 and 11 cannot display grid layouts like FireFox and Chrome.  In fact we know that Microsoft is lagging behind on their support of standards in their IE browser. Thanks Steve and Bill!   However some of us are discovering that Edge can display them kind of correctly now.  Unfortunately, Edge is as stupid as IE.   If you developed fantastic looking grid layout pages for Chrome and do not want to revert back to old fashioned table layouts, I have the ultimate solution for you. It's called vendor extensions. First thing to do is to drop some of your CSS into the autoprefixer to allow it to add new MS vendor extensions. Then you add your new CSS into your sheets. If you had this CSS and it worked in Chrome, you will then add -ms-grid and -ms-grid-columns. Plus you will also add .ms-grid-row and -ms-grid-column to each row/column cell. .grid-container { display : grid; g

Windows Internal Database Service: Will Not Start and Fails with Error Code 1297

Windows Internal Database Fails to Start or Fails to Install from Server Manager Greetings, y'all.  Recently, I started building a WSUS server on Windows Server 2012 R2. While trying to install Windows Internal Database from the Server Manager , it fails to install, yet leaves the services.msc control panel with a non-starting service called " Windows Internal Database ." It refuses to start, that's why the installer refuses to finish.  I was using "Add Roles and Features" to add this service.  Curiously enough, after a reboot, the service will be removed. But, If you try to start the service before the reboot, you will see this message dialog.
