Microsoft Windows for Workgroups (WfW) 3.11, released back in 1993, was the first operating system I ever used. As the name suggests, WfW was designed for networking in workgroups of a few people and workstations. This included centralized authentication, file and printer sharing based on Microsoft NetBEUI or NetBIOS (transported for example over Novell’s IPX/SPX … Continue reading Connecting to the WWW With Windows for Workgroups 3.11

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!

Vegetarians avert your eyes.

#grillstock is here and we've started with home smoked ribs. 8 hours of TLC in the Weber BBQ. We haven't even headed to the festival yet.

Working on SQL Servers big or small: every DBA should have the First Responder Kit in their toolkit (don't leave home without it). They've moved it to an open source model too and apparently +Brent Ozar very nearly renamed sp_AskBrent to sp_BlitzyMcBlitzFace...but sp_BlitzFirst is easier to type.

Took some digging but it looks like a recent efficiency improvement by another team achieved over 30% efficiency this is still down at ~15% but it's early days!

Still an amazing feat of #engineering, here's hoping the efficiency and choice of material (gallium arsenic) improves before it becomes your next #wearable.
