Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Watch Halo episode 1 for free

Don’t want to subscribe to Paramount+? The first episode of Halo TV series is on YouTube for free.

App pick of the week: Shotcut

Shotcut is a free, open-source video editor that supports lots of features. It’s a bit hard to use, like most video editors. But easier than Davinci Resolve and some other choices.

Enterprise pick of the week: Reading the latest ScottGu reorg tea leaves

Another reorg — this one on the enterprise side of the house. Who’s in? Who’s out? Who cares? (You should if you are Microsoft enterprise customer.)

Watchword of the week: Process mining

It’s no Hadoop — but you’re going to be hearing lots more about process mining in the days/weeks/years to come. And Microsoft just bought into this space with its latest acquisition, Minit.

Beer pick of the week: Torch & Crown Bat Flip

In honor of baseball starting up again, Torch & Crown — our only brewery in Manhattan — makes a spring ale each year called Bat Flip. It’s a hoppy golden ale with 5.4% ABV. Perfect for drinking at games or at home while watching games.

    The breadth and depth of Paul's complaining about missing right click features on the Windows 11 taskbar is getting tiresome in the extreme. Move on Paul! Find something else to complain about for a while. Just hit Ctrl-Shift-Esc to bring up the task manager, you prefer hot keys anyway!

    Cricket is a fantastic sport, though it takes some time to learn for Americans. Test cricket, which is what everybody from non cricket playing countries thinks cricket is, can lasts up to five days. If you want a faster version of it, there are options out there. T10 cricket is 10 overs a side, and lasts around 90 minutes. Twenty20 cricket lasts about three hours. An ODI (One Day International) match can last most of the day, as its 50 overs a side.
