I have created tiled bitmaps with the server's name on it (eg NODE1, PRIMARY DOMAIN CONTROLLER etc), so if you log in to a server via RDP you can instantly see which server it is that you're working on.
And, yes, this was preceded by me rebooting the wrong server. Now I can instantly see which server I'm working on, and this avoids mistakes.
Face it, a slew of open RDP sessions on your desktop will invariably cause you to issue the wrong command in the wrong window. Fun.
One reason why I don't like cloudy services. Your entire company's at the mercy of said cloudy services. And there's also other factors to consider - internet access etc etc etc.
Also keep in mind that the techs at the cloud centre/host are all "shared" amongst more than one company. Meaning if one company experience major b0rkage, then all hands may attend to said b0rkage, leaving you to wait for somebody to attend to your small problem.
I've never been a huge fan of wireless keyboards and mice in the office environment.
Same here. Wired is much better. As is, I'm using wired keyboards.
Tried wireless once, it is nice - until the battery runs flat and you're in the middle of something urgent (server resuscitation, data rescue etc)....
Now what if your current employer decide to send you over & they take a shufty at your facebook page, and up pops a message from a friend from 6 years ago full of things that go boomz, goatse and tubgirl stuff, and based on that they decline your visa?
Whose fault would that be?
I have a twatter and faceboob account, but both are used so seldom nowadays.
We used to have fair iburst coverage at our domicilium. Was good enough for youtubing etc. With unused data rolling over to the next month.
Until the company decided to ditch their old tech and vswitch over to LTE/LTE-A
Which is actually more expensive, you need new hardware, and there's no data rollover.

If you want to stop people fly-tipping, then ensure they have ways and means of disposing of their rubbish legally.
Attaching allsorts of strings or conditions to this only mean that fly-tipping will get worse, and will cost the council more money than what it would've cost them if they did it in a better way...
Seems common sense had left this planet a long time ago.
And it's shareholder interest that is more important than customers interest once again.
Shareholders give no value to a company, only its customers and loyal staff do. Without loyal staff and customers a company can't give its shareholders any value.
Most businesses (especially here in SA) seems to think that shareholders are the most important...
Speaking of which, have KFC managed to pull itself together again? Have read about that big hoohaa, most probably some beancounter trying to cut costs in order to get a bigger bonus.
And this is a prime example of why outsourcing is a big NO.
If properly managed, documented and handed over, then maybe. Not a yes, but a maybe, because you really don't know how that company will handle pressure when it arrives unexpectedly.
