I’ve had a Polycom CX600 sitting on my desk for a few months now. It’s been acting up in that it was unable to connect to the Lync server. I figured it needed an update but wasn’t sure how to update these devices.
I’ve been spending most of my summer in what I like to affectionately call “Email Hell”. We moved 80,000 student mailboxes from Live@Edu to Office 365. We implemented Active Directory Synchronization and implemented a non-standard ADFS deployment to provide better service to BYOD laptops then you would get with a standard ADFS deployment. I’ll post about this on its own post. It’s a deep solution will probably be two posts.
So as many people know, I carry a Windows Phone among the many mobile devices I carry. Its an HTC 8X, and before that I had a Samsung Focus. I like the phone, works good for many things, but one of its drawbacks is its apps selection. One of the last major missing applications is Instagram. I use Instagram daily. I was surprised a couple of weeks back when my CIO posted a picture to Instagram of a tall ship. He carries a Samsung ATIV so I was wondering how he did that (cause he loves the phone and couldn’t see him carrying an android or iPhone) and he told me he used an application called Instance. Off to the Windows Phone Store I went looking for the application.
If you have deployed Office 365 or are planning to and are looking to publish your ADFS to external users, for example, workers from a remote location like Starbucks or for mobile devices then you have a couple of choices.
I was playing with a security plugin for WordPress and everything came up fine except for a warning that .htaccess was missing from the wp-admin folder. Fine, its not there, but what the heck do you put in it.
