Wow, so good to see some real news instead of that fake stuff on the networks.

Procrastinating, anyone else?!
I actually spent an hour yesterday reinstalling a set of wire shelves in my office closet yesterday that had been sitting near my doorway for about 6 months now since having a slightly larger hot water tank put in when the old (26 y/o) one started leaking. To be fair, it required using a hacksaw to cut off about 1 inch from each (4) shelf and replacing several of the wall hooks.
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!
If you can live with an FN combo for insert, the Logitech K830[^] appears to fit the bill.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Thanks, but there are lots around of that size. What I need something more tablet sized so it can sit in my shoulder bag alongside the two 8" tablets - Android and Win 10. I did find one, but it was Android only, and I understand that this would not be compatible with Windows.

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.
