When Microsoft recently released a new Outlook app for iOS I decided to try it out. I previously used both the built-in Mail app from Apple and the Gmail app side by side, so if Outlook was good enough I could maybe switch to one single mail app on the phone. You can read some more about it here: A deeper look at Outlook for iOS and Android. Trying out the new features it struck me that a lot of people must have a hard time managing their e-mail.
When you build a web site on a CMS and a theme made by someone else you always have some limitations. For this blog I use WordPress and the Montezuma theme, and this is how I customised the default CSS grid options to my liking. These are the grid options you can choose from in version 1.2.4 of the Montezuma theme. Not bad at all, but if you want to use a responsive layout (and yes, you should) you have to choose between a fixed 960 px maximum width or use the 100% width option which can become ridiculous on large high resolution screens.
Recently I helped my sister with a new computer. Her previous one was typical low-end desktop machine that you would find in any of the big stores. As such, it was bulky and with time had become very noisy. So when I took the “assignment” to find a new one I was looking for something configurable, smaller, with a decent value for money and something my sister would perceive as “new”.
The main reason I use VMware Workstation is the user-friendliness compared to Hyper-V or VirtualBox when using multiple machines in a common virtual network. Today I discovered a thing that could be made easier however. I’m mainly writing this for my own reference, if I stumble on the same thing sometime in the future, perhaps someone else does to. I copied a group of virtual machines to a new disk and when I migrated them from an earlier version (7) I must have made some error, because the reference to the AD machine was still referring to the old disk.
