#Microsoft Opens #CloudGermany with 2 New DCs -- #Azure und 365 über alles
Microsoft’s cloud: ready for Germany. Two new data centers now open for Azure IaaS/PaaS, with Office and Dynamics SaaS coming soon. Germany is well known for its strict data-privacy laws. And it’s one of the largest economies in the European Union. So it was a sensible location choice after the UK DCs opened earlier this month. And of course, Amazon already has an AWS DC in the country. +Petri IT Knowledgebase #ITNP

Microsoft updates TypeScript language to 2.0. It’s an open-source superset of JavaScript, but said to be easier to use, more productive, create more reliable code, and compile down to standard JavaScript. Version 2.0 adds features such as non-nullable types and expanded control flow analysis. Plus tagged unions, the never type, this types for functions, and of course glob support...

Far too small when an A380 due to depart. Snacks are pretty good. Decor is bland. F section even blander. Boarding to 747 or 777 direct from lounge, which is convenient. But they can't do that on an A380. Badly due for extension, but I hear plans are on hold.

Under new management (again). Yes, they're keeping up the excellent standard set by the previous lot. Come hungry (and with a dog or two). Service much improved: fast and friendly. Booking recommended for Sunday lunch.

We used this company twice for long-distance taxi services to/from Kingston, Jamaica in Jan and Feb 2016. Both drivers drove like maniacs, refusing to use the toll roads. One was more than half an hour late. Both trips took far longer than estimated to reach destination. Cars were old, cramped and uncomfortable. On the positive side, we didn't die. Update: Hoppa refunded a decent proportion of the price, due to the terrible experience.
