Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Read

After talking to MJF about learning, it occurred to me that I could set aside some time each day to just read. It’s so obvious.

App pick of the week: Firefox for Android

Firefox for Android is getting a completely re-do. There are pros and cons.

Enterprise pick of the week: Windows Server ‘Next’ LTSC is coming

After not telling us anything about the test builds of Windows Server ‘Next’ despite releasing lots of test builds to Insiders, today, we finally have information about the Dev Channel build 20201. MS is calling this the next LTSC release.

Codename pick of the week: Strada

Strada was the original codename for TypeScript. And as of last week, TypeScript 4.0 is out.

Beer pick of the week: Curious Elixirs

This is an alcohol-free drink pick of the week. If you haven’t looked at alcohol-free cocktails and mixes lately, it might be time to give them another look. Hudson Valley NY-based Curious Elixirs is making four pre-mixed non-alcoholic cocktails that rely on juices, herbs and other natural ingredients to simulate cocktails like Negronis, Dark and Stormys and more. I’ve tried two and they are quite tasty (though a bit pricey).
