Sometime when you are connecting to a free wifi you will have problems bringing up the "I accept... I promise I won't sue you..." page. Try using File > New incognito window in chrome, Safari > Private Browsing, or Tools > Private Browsing in Firefox, or File > New Private window in Opera. Sometimes your cookies and cache get in the way of the page loading.
BTW, I have also used this to fix issues on Citrix eDocs in Chrome. One wouldn't want history proving you did some RTFM would we? Great side benefit!
These are a few key reasons that Desktop Virtualization or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is such an important driver currently and how to tell in the future if it is a relevant delivery option.
• Minimum device resources in each device tier and the cost–tier relationship.
• Ubiquity of Internet connectivity.
• Hardware relationship to operating system base requirements.
• Operating system hardware dependence, configuration complexity, and size compared to local storage cost/size.
Wow, a lot of jumping between XenServer, Hyper-V and vSphere this week. It really was fun, fun, fun until I had to take my daugher’s T-bird away. But that is yet another story.
Today’s topic is everyone’s favorite xml file, proxy.xml. What fun! Ah, the pleasant days spent in a customer’s datacenter, conference room, or cube hacking away at this file. I could tell you stories only fit for the “National Enquirer”. Unfortunately today I am only going to tell stories about why this particular CTX article is so important.
The vhd Tool at MSDN by Chris Eck can crete large VHD's via command line in seconds. Wow! this is better than chocolate ice cream and just short of Spumoni. (And when the fat guy rates something in the range of ice cream you know it's a good tool.) http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/vhdtool
Here is what he says about it...
None of this has anything to do with us, someone else is responsible for the entire thing, and we have no idea who or why. We do not know anything about it. It may be alien life forms for all we know: we haven't a clue. You cannot blame us for anything that may result from your visit. That was entirely your own personal choice, made by you of your own volition, and without our knowledge. We do not, after all, have any control over you and cannot by any stretch of the imagination be expected to accept or acknowledge, be it legally or morally, any accountability for decisions made by you on an independent basis, utilizing your own free will, and without our intervention. We are therefore in no way, shape, or form answerable to anyone for any consequences arising from the aforementioned or indeed any other actions, similar or otherwise, because it was not us that did, or did not do anything. It is not even remotely our fault, and we are in no way prepared or willing to accept any liability, not even slightly, ever. We are, in fact completely and utterly blameless, in that it is definitely not our concern, and no blame can possibly be laid at our doorstep, even if we had one, the possession of which we hereby reserve as being entirely our own free choice. The onus is not on us at all, and furthermore, never has been. The entire matter is wholly beyond our control, and completely out of our hands, each of which are washed scrupulously clean of the whole business. We are not accountable for anything at all, and we hereby categorically deny all responsibility for all that has ever, or will ever happen. Our innocence is therefore wholly beyond doubt and absolutely unimpeachable, and so cannot, under even the remotest or unlikeliest circumstances, be brought into question. By clicking either on a link on this site, clicking on a link that leads to this site, or by arriving at this site by natural or supernatural means, you are in effect accepting responsibility for the fact that it is all entirely your own fault, down to the most miniscule detail, and that you are wholly accountable for whatever outcome may arise as a consequence of the aforementioned action or actions insofar as they were undertaken personally by you on an entirely voluntary basis and without any persuasion, coercion or influence from any party or parties other than yourself. Don't come sniveling to us, we are only figments of your imagination. I also agree that if I am ever with a contributor to this website during mealtimes I agree to pay for any super-sizing of their meal, or at least a nice dessert or one of those foo-foo drinks with an umbrella or a monkey. By admitting to have seen the worthless spineless drivel on this website (also known as content) I Agree Wholeheartedly and Without Reservation to the above. (Except maybe for that part about the monkey.)
All Your Base Are Belong To Us.

Never make a bet with a Sicilian when Death is on the Line!
No. Really, I do agree.
