Windows 10 for Education Strategy Briefings

Tonight our son Sam begins his college journey with thousands of other students at Northern Illinois University.  He is a freshman and as opposed to a crazy move in day today, he has been living in his dorm a whole week participating in marching band camp.  Tonight we can march with him over to NIU’s Brigham stadium to celebrate…

dave bost

I don’t take a ton of pictures with co-workers and have not seen one with Dave Bost – a co-worker that passed away two years ago.  Dave was involved with CNUG (Chicago .NET User Group) and I was involved with CWUG (Chicago Windows User Group) so we often ran into each other in the Downers…

closing out 2015 – digitizing toastmasters

It’s the last day of 2015 and I’ve got 10 OneDrive templates to share with the International Toastmasters community.  If you are involved with Toastmasters, you probably find the speech program somewhat antiquated from a mobile/modern collaboration perspective.  The 10 speeches are in a physical manual (that you have to remember to bring to meetings)…

my very first windows server technical preview 2 and nanoserver installs

Today I downloaded the Windows Server Technical Preview 2 and installed it on Hyper-V.  I then did a quick search to figure out how to install NanoServer.  The instructions were not clear on why you were doing certain steps (and also did a poor job of demonstrating my favorite feature – a small disk footprint!),…

learning azure with my own website project

It’s been a long time since I wrote a website.  I really enjoy some aspects of it (what I consider the scripting part of it) – type in something, save the file and open or refresh a browser.  I have discovered if I have to compile something that’s typically where I lose patience/interest.  So as…

countdown to ignite–t minus 11 (business) days

I am going to Microsoft’s Ignite conference and will be delivering some tips and tricks on Windows 10 and Office 365.  I might as well start documenting the various tips here for attendees to reference maybe more detail than I’ll have time for in my session – so here we go.  I’m going to start…
