Might help internally, but I'm interested in easy ways to share the screen rather than hand over control. If I want to take over a machine I'll use RDCMan, for this problem I want to share the screen for Demos.
Before they sold off and turned into Dracula, we bought a single tech license of screen connect and put if on a win7 box in our office.
Backed it up nightly with acronis because it allows us to have Logmein rescue style access to any little old lady we might need to help out from afar. It was $300.00- one time. And it is the best thing ever. Especially when snowed in.
I'm in a mixed group, some silver boxes some black boxes, Lync/Skype works well with my black box brethren. With the Silver boxes we tend to use Zoom, the only drawback is that meetings can only last 40 minutes.
I have started using Zoho Meeting, http://join.zoho.com/ its quick and easy and free for low usage. I use teamviewer for non-commercial purposes but their licences are too expensive for occasional usage.
I haven't seen anyone else mention it yet, but I use the paid version of Mikogo for business meetings with clients (when I'm working as a contractor). It works really nicely and I haven't hit the limit on participants yet.
It includes VOIP that works really well, but the meeting is all-VOIP or all-phone (dialin), so the lowest common denominator wins if you have a mixed bag of attendees.

ciò che si vuole, e più non dimandare
--The answer to Minos and any question of "Why are we doing it this way?"
I regularly use both GoToMeeting and Join.me for international online meetings.
I don't have a preference; both work very well to coordinate our activities over. The presenter's screen is displayed for all to see. Voice can be via your microphone or dial in for those who don't have a microphone on their PC.
Previously I used TightVNC, though a pain to setup if the other party isn't exactly "literate".
These days, NoMachine. It has a interactive and view-only mode as well. The fastest throughput I've yet seen in any of these remote screen sharing systems. Very easy to use, even across all major OSs. The free version only allows one connection at a time, but the enterprise version gives the possibility of several viewers / interacters on the same screen.
Hi CodeProject members,
After being a passive reader of CodeProject articles for so long a time, it feels great to be actively contributing something to this thriving and extremely helpful community.
Recently, I decided to undertake the task of explaining some relatively complex concepts of T-SQL, SQL Server and MSBI, in an effort to give back something to the community I have been learning from for so long.
My goal is to simplify the explanation and elucidation of the concepts as much as possible, at the expense of being annoyingly verbose if need be.
To this effect, I started with explanation of a recursive Common Table Expression in t-SQL. My article can be found at[^] http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1139746/Recursive-CTE.
Now this is my first attempt at explaining something in writing. I need feedback-, how have I fared overall, suggestions for improvement, possible topics for later etc.
Thus, I am sincerely hoping, active community members would help me out in this regard. I have tried explaining the recursive CTE concept to the best of my ability here. But of course, often one's best is still lacking in some respects. Please come forth with your comments and feedback.
Could I have used a better example to explain the concept?
Could I have used better formatting for the code snippets? Or the result-sets?
How could I have ensured that this article is as helpful as possible to a person who is finding it difficult to grasp the recursive CTE concept?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Ah yes. True. Thing is I wanted to post this message only once. But immediately on posting it, the website reported 'Message removed'! And I was confused if I was doing something wrong-like posting my message in the wrong forum perhaps. Therefore, the repetition.
And I couldn't get the link right. True again. I am doing this for the first time.
By the way, is there any specific rule or regulation which bans people from posting anything after 7 years?
And regarding drumming up support for an article, the article is what it is. The article's usefulness or worthlessness should not be judged simply on the basis of a perceived desperation on the part of its author. Give the article a chance to prove itself.
At the moment, you have a bigger problem - I'm starting to suspect that you didn't write the article. So if you don't prove it pretty quickly - and you say you can - then somebody (maybe me, maybe not) is going to start the "plagiarism process" which will very quickly get your account closed. Permanently.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
That's all I needed.
We take plagiarism very seriously here, and have a "no second chances" policy. So when your article appears elsewhere and is suspiciously deleted, I do start to suspect the worst!
You'd be amazed how many people think that "copy and paste" equals "I wrote this" ...

I am deleting that thread at Quora again, okay?
And hey, it is okay.
And of course, why should a freeloader be allowed to claim another person's hard work as his or her own? It is best to be vigilant against these kind of attempts.
By the way, can I now request you to spare some time in reading my article and provide your thoughts? If you don't mind, that is.
Now I am not sure about whether one can be accused of plagiarizing from oneself. Self-plagiarizing, perhaps?
It is me who wrote that answer. But of course, a better platform for that kind of answer is CodeProject. Don't you think?
Now please check the link. I am going to delete the thread from Quora again. I don't want same article posted multiple times in multiple places.

I was, once, by a Dutch moron living in Kowloon and conning kids out of money for mostly copied-and-pasted English lessons (example here[^])
The stuff he added himself in the discussion boards he spammed was always completely wrong, so I was continually pulling him up on it (as well as posting the sources of his stolen text).
On one occasion, I quoted my own text from one of my own sites, and he immediately flared up, demanding to know how I dared to call him a plagiarist and thief, when I had "stolen" the words from a web-site. Ranted about it for several hundred words.
So I added a comment at the top of the page I'd copied my work out of, telling him in no uncertain terms precisely what kind of idiot he is.
Dick W.J. Oosterveld, the guy's name.
Pretends to be the CO of a non-existent company named HKEOL (started as Hong Kong Exporters On-line, a poorly made web-shop that never sold a bean, then changed to Hong Kong English On Line, when he realised he could bilk Chinese kids out of money for copied and pasted English lessons).
If you ever run across him, give him a smack in the mouth from me.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
So you really are desperate; posting this in three different forums is really bad form. All you are doing is cluttering the forums with unnecessary messages and getting a bad reputation for yourself. Which means quite a few people will not bother to read your article.
Sorry I can't help as I know nothing on T-SQL or SQL Server in the last 15 years.
But to everyone else, just f*** off and look at his article and judge him on that. The posting in 3 forums has been addressed in his initial or second reply.
Get a life you miserable c***s and whinge like bitches else where.
