Enterprise pick of the week: Get a year free of basic call-in conferencing for Teams

SMBs and small partners may want dial-in conferencing for Teams but don’t want to get PSTN dial-in because it’s costly. Microsoft quietly is offering a year’s free (basic) call-in conferencing by adding it via the M365 admin portal. Thanks to Alex Niehaus for the info on this offer that started Oct. 1.

Codename pick of the week: Aquila

SCOM is coming to Azure (as a stepping stone to MS trying to get Op Manager users to go to Azure Monitor). The codename of this is Aquila and it should be in private preview soon ™.

Beer pick of the week: Evil Twin’s “IT’S ‘BAILEY’S IRISH CREAM COFFEE’ NOT ‘BAILEY’S, IRISH CREAM, & COFFEE’”

It’s not a peanut butter whiskey, but how about a stout conditioned on ‘Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee’. Flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, nutty coffee, cream, & vanilla. 12.2% creamy goodness
