When I travel on holiday, for years now I have been taking a old, clapped out HP Net-book (remember those? Dead | X| ) 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! Suspicious | :suss:
