The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
When I travel on holiday, for years now I have been taking a old, clapped out HP Net-book (remember those? ) so I could RDP into a client's system in case of disaster. I have a dedicated PC in each client's office that I use to log into their various VMs. However, I also travel with a tablet and a smartphone, so the net-book seems a little superfluous - all I need is a proper miniature Bluetooth keyboard with touch-pad or track-ball to go with my pair of 8" tablets, so I can do a Ctl-Alt-Del and Ctl-Del-Ins to login to the server, and then to the VM.
I know that MS RDP for Android has Ctl-Alt-Del built in, but not the other, and can I find a keyboard to do this? No way, not a chance. Touch-pad yes, insert key no. Insert key yes, touch-pad no. I can't use the normal wireless keyboard/mouse as that would occupy the only USB port (by OTG cable) and I would need to plug in the charger as thses remote sessions tend to be long.
As Christmas is coming soon, I am allowed to say BAH HUMBUG!
My head is so full of odd bits of trivia there seems to be little space for useful stuff most of the time. Most of it I have very little idea where it came from - it's quite possible I was looking up how to spell a different word on the same page of the Oxford Dictionary of English (page 1852 in my edition, I just checked) and picked up "tmesis" without noticing.

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
Thinking I've got this as I already have AZ-103 and AZ-203 and it's basically my everyday job.
Doing a test exam.
You want to do X, what service should you use?
- Event Grid
- Event Hub
- Notification Hub
- Service Bus
So... Am I going for a random grid or a random hub and is it really an event or a notification?
[Something with on-premises] [something with single entrance] [optionally some load balancing], what services can you use?
- Web Application Firewall
- Next Generation Firewall
- Traffic Manager
- Load Balancer
- Application Gateway
What the heck is even the difference between the first two and the last three?
They load balance, but on a different level and/or using different protocols or some such minor detail.
Better RTFM on those
Maybe I don't got this after all
At least I now know the difference between the grids and hubs
I'll know on Friday, going for AZ-300 first.
