I'm interested to hear Paul & Brad's takes on how this will affect China's version of Azure (21Vianet & Blue Cloud) and Windows.
I'm getting a woozy, sick feeling and a headache after about 30 minutes of play time with the new COD:MW. I've been playing FPS games for decades, and none of them have given me any problems until this game. Does anyone else experience this video games? What's the deal?
I have a similar situation with my laptop. It's connected to a Thunderbolt dock, and I had to hit the power button on the laptop to wake it from sleep. My solution was to plug in the wireless dongle of my Logitech keyboard and mouse directly into a USB port on the computer. It's the only thing not running through the TB dock, and it wakes the machine.
I registered for Microsoft Ignite 2019 today. Are any other Thurrott readers going? Will there be a live event?
I've been presented the opportunity to go to Build and/or Ignite this year. If you could only choose to go to one, which and why?
Half of my day job is enterprise on-prem and Azure development, and the other half is business analyst type work.
I picked up a 500GB external Seagate Game Drive for Xbox SSD, and boy, did it ever improve load times. I spend most of my Xbox time playing Destiny 2 which is notorious for its long load times on consoles. Pulling up the menu to switch your character's gear on an Xbox One X could take 10-15 seconds. If you were in the middle of a fire-fight and found you needed a different weapon, forget about it. You'll be killed while waiting in menu-purgatory to swap out your lame legendary machine gun for our lord and savior, the Sleeper Stimulant.
But not for me! Not anymore. I can mash that menu button and swap gear faster than chain lightning. Gone are the days of browsing the Destiny subreddit while traveling between the game's planets. Now I have just enough time to crack open another seltzer water and take a sip.
Adding an external SSD to my Xbox One has made already fun games even more enjoyable. The 500GB Seagate SSD can be had for around $130-$150 when they're in stock. If you've got the spare change and the willingness to do so, I suggest getting one.
Windows 10 1809 or Intel 10nm?
The company I work for gave me a really nice Dell Precision 5530 laptop with the really nice 4K screen option. The monitors are on my desk are your standard issue, no frills, Dell 1920x1080 screens. If I try to run all three screens at the same time (two 1920x1080 screens scaled at 100% and one 4K screen scaled at 250%) everything goes wacky. Icon and text size vary wildly. The only way to return things to normal is to choose to use only the external screens or only the built-in screen, and do the sign-out/sign-in dance. It is—unpleasant.
Has anyone solved this problem?
My company has an old PDF form that was originally created in the now-defuct Adobe LiveCycle. It’s an incident report form employees were able to fill out, embed photos into, and then send the report data off to the main office. It was not mobile friendly.
So now it’s my job to replace it with something better. I have Office 365 E5 and a robust Azure subscription at my disposal.
Is this something I could do with Power Apps or Flow?
Any other ideas that’ll make me look like a hero?
Edit: I'll stipulate that this solution needs to be something a remote employee can quickly access and complete from an O365 authenticated mobile device.
Office 365 or G Suite — which do you think is best for families and why?
Things we’ll use: email, calendars, cloud storage for documents and photos, word processor, spreadsheets
Edit: We’ll probably also want to use a custom domain name at some point.
Hey hi hello. One of my work machines still runs Windows 7 Enterprise. I'm looking for a utility that will automatically size and position windows. There are dozens of them out there, so do any of you recall any standouts you would recommend?
The installer for Visual Studio for Mac is in French it seems. I've downloaded it multiple times and re-ran the install process. It's in French every time. What?
Paul made a comment on a recent First Ring Daily that Parallels was the better way to run Windows on Apple hardware. I had been using Bootcamp, but I gave the latest Parallels a try this morning. HOLY CATS! It's way way way better than Bootcamp.
I'm running Windows 10 Pro in Bootcamp on a 15" Macbook Pro. I'd like to remap the lower-left fn (Fucntion) key to Ctrl in Windows; however, all the keyboard mapping applications I've seen so far only consider the three (Ctrl, Windows, Alt) keys left of the Space Bar on standard Windows keyboards.
I use FastMail for email, calendars, and contacts. Windows 10 not having native caldav / carddav support is really the only thing keeping me from switching from Mac OS to Windows 10 full-time.
