Further RemoteApp development by +Microsoft to be dropped in favour of a Citrix-based future for #VDI in the cloud/Desktop as a Service (DaaS).

All the more relevant as the customers I've been working with have been looking for lighter, quicker-to-deploy solutions. VDI always seems the right answer at the wrong price point for a lot of businesses - maybe this partnership will break that duck!

#in 
Microsoft is dropping its Azure RemoteApp technology over the course of the next year and guiding customers to go, instead, with virtualization software and service from Citrix.

Might be of interest to +Bert Knabe​, it would appear that the three app, for managing account and billing information, doesn't use HTTPS....which is nice.

#security
@ThreeUK sorry to ask but does this mean you don't use https #security when sending my billing data to your servers? Embedded image. 3:12 pm - 10 Aug 2016. Reply to @moltenlead · Home · Sign up · Log in · Search · About. More like this; Less like this; Cancel. Not on Twitter?

Tada. +Mark Miller​ worked out that this was a tiny pancake. I think perhaps future #wtf should only include 1 pixel 😋

In response to +Stuart Mcgregor​​'s post... We went for a drive around Skåne, Sweden: isn't the view just dreadful

There's 5 windmills over the hill. I doubt the nimby's would stand for that 😋

A brilliant photography from +Lars-Ove Törnebohm​ that's really worth a look. And then, maybe a second look. The image has great detail and, to my eye, a level of not-quite symmetry that has me going back, looking for more.

Is this real!?! Comes with 30 of the finest NES games such as Zelda and Bubble Bobble - all kinds of geek success here, a genuine stroke of genius by the +Nintendo team.

Brilliant article about reseeding +Veeam replication jobs by +Rowell Dionicio after changing the disk size of the source machine (spoiler: you need to remove the snapshots and change the disk size on the replica too).

This article discusses increasing storage but it works with reducing disk size too - just note that you need to hand-edit the files.

Helping teachers bring tangible programming (programming with things rather than code) to children and others who want to build without needing to know syntax or even how to write.

This kind of hands-on learning is the reason I got started with robotics, engineering and development (thanks grandad). This gets more people interested in #engineering which has to be a good thing!

Six months since the last #WTFIsThis - any guesses on what this might be

+Mark Miller​ harsh... Turns out g+ went quiet on notifications. Also turns out you nailed the picture first go. Worried you have access to my actual photo account 🤔. Full version will follow

If it wasn't for the ease of movement that came from being part of the EU I may never have met my girlfriend as the difficulties of getting a job post-university would have made "migrating" to the UK unattractive and thus studying here an expensive degree that could have been completed domestically instead. I wonder where we would both be now if that was the case.

Another article mentioned that even before the article 50 button has been pressed EU universities are already less keen on new programmes with UK universities due to the risk. It might seem unfair but from a risk point of view it's the responsible thing to do. I wonder how much more of this we will see once the button has actually been pushed.

#brexit #eu
More than a third of international students say they are now less likely to study at a UK university following last month’s vote to leave the EU, a survey has found. Of 1,014 students surveyed this month by Hobsons International, a careers advisory

An article from earlier this year doing some great data mining of commits made at +JUST EAT (who I have had luck to see presenting at +WinOps Conference  in London). Results: no-one wants to commit code last thing on a Friday and have to support problems over the weekend

We hold quarterly hackathons at JUST EAT tech, and for the last hackathon of 2015 my team (Ahmed Malik and Raffi Tamizian) and I decided to take a leaf out of Adam Tornhill’s book to see if we coul...

The start of Juno's fascinating mission. 37 laps of Jupiter to discover more about one of the most harsh environments in the solar system, after the sun.

Imagine trying to control a drone with a 48 minute delay on the controls...that's how good the team at NASA need to be.

“This was a one-shot deal,” Scott Bolton, the mission’s principal investigator, said.

And the NASA team is very, very good, indeed. I was glued to NASA TV yesterday - that was some edge-of-the-seat drama right there!

Nice and helpful staff, good food and great coffee. A little untidy but always worth hunting out.

Smashing coffee, good service. Clean inside and out. Bit off the A12 but the signs get you there. Really nice spot for a break and to stretch your legs and walk the dogs.

The best ice cream around. Bulk tubs or individual cones. Delicious and worth making a detour for!

Clean, compact, has some green space to stretch your legs (and the dogs' legs) if you need it - not pretty or big. Update 2016: toilets, sinks and driers are mainly broken, main walkways in the services are blocked with stock from the small shops inside; difficult to get a buggy or wheelchair through. Quality and cleanliness has definitely gone down. Costa team were lovely though.

Sadly management have no interest in keeping the site clean. Tyres, brake discs, general rubbish, nappies and what few bins that are available are all full and overflowing. Toilets (gent's) have no baby change, were flooded and after mentioning to staff they put then out of order. Staff and store were clean and well stocked. Use the loos inside instead. 😊

Really helpful staff. Grabbed a takeaway small portion off menu, fresh, tasty and well served even for a takeaway. Will certainly go again

Helpful staff, bit disorganised but that's more the service station than the Costa team. Great beverages.
