Hot chips crashed servers, but were still delicious


Monitor weirdness

I have three monitors on my Office PC. Shortly after I moved to my present location I found that one of them randomly goes black and mostly comes straight back on. Occasionally though it stays black and it is necessary to switch it off and leave it perhaps 10 minutes before I can get it back to life.

Eventually I realised that this flicker only occurs when someone uses the shredder. It doesn't happen every time the shredder is used and it's better than it was now I have a surge protector extension lead on it, but it is still an annoyance.

Re: Have you read the blurb on their blog?

From the 'Business Applications' Section, 3rd Paragraph.

"Microsoft is uniquely incenting its sales reps to work hand-in-hand with Azure partners to drive new business together and enabling partners to leverage the Microsoft salesforce to grow their business globally."

And while we're at it, what the hell is 'incenting' ???

Re: Streetview

There is an alternative. Wigle .com has a user submitted map of wifi locations. Both SSID and Mac address are shown. Coverage can be patchy away from main roads but it's expanding all the time.

Beer icon because it's Friday.
