    Windows Server User Client Access Licences

    Everything's working fine - I just want to be sure we're compliant and top up the licences if need be and allow room for some more growth while I can still find some - MS don't sell 'em any more...

    Windows Server User Client Access Licences

    Thanks Mark. We're using WIN SBS 2011 which, as I understand it, is an all-in-one solution so should only need 1 set of CALs? These? I've been asked to review the licences as we may be a few short*. As many users access via a number of devices I guess user CALs are the way to go rather than...

Cue random chunks of glass flying out and hitting you in the face when you went too fast with the blower on! Cavalier where the dashboard fell off (less than a year...

    Increase Speed Limits - Online Petition

    You asked to see some facts and figures as to how vehicle emissions "increase" with increased carriageway speeds. I pointed you in the right direction. How is this 'bashing the OP'? The article may be a few years old but that doesn't render science irrelevant.

    Don't it always seem to go

    I'm sure they will, despite Harold Jonathan Esmond Vere Harmsworth, 4th Viscount Rothermere, who has the controlling interest in the Wail having non-domicile tax status and owning his media businesses through a complex structure of offshore holdings and trusts which entail him paying almost no...

    Roof down

    Range of smart key

    Hard locking the boot is fine but if you can also inadvertently unlock the doors as well then you've not solved the problem - I know from experience, having it happen to me and having lost a satnav as a result.
