  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems. Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats.

Create a local user account on first Windows boot

Potoms Omar Windows 17 May 2023

On latest versions of Windows 11, the installer no longer allows creation of local user account.

Apply the following workaround to allow creation of a local user account.

N.B.:The PC/LAPTOP must not be connected to a network (WIFI, LAN).

Follow the Windows installation setup until asks to connect to a network or add a Microsoft account to continue with the installation.

Press SHIFT + F10

A command prompt will appear, please type the following sentence:


The pc will reboot and the installation will restart.
Follow the setup until Windows ask to connect to a network
Now a new botton "I don't have internet" will appear.

Press button "I don't have internet" to proceed with a "limited setup" where will allow you to create a local user account.

On some versions, Microsoft may require a mandatory Microsoft account before proceeding with installation setup (usually in Windows 11 Home build).
You can proceed with the same procedure, and in this case you must click on each "skip" button proposed during the installation.
