There was a time when I found all MS ads to be cringe worthy, but I haven't seen a real dud from them lately.
Call it a real-world run-time test - now they know that the generator works and how long the battery will last.
There are charts for Galvanic Corrosion, with metals being ranked from highly Anodic to highly Cathodic.
Generally speaking, metals close to each other on the chart are reasonably compatible, but the further apart they get, the higher the galvanic corrosion rating.
@ScanIAm: Like nearly all UPS's it uses Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) batteries, otherwise known as sealed LA batteries.
I suspect that cost and safety would rule out the use of Li batteries, particularly when talking about this level of storage and bigger.
At 48KVA this is only an entry-level data-centre class UPS, but even at this size, an Li battery fire would be a real problem.
Like many SME we use CISCO networking equipment almost exclusively.
For a while we used Forefront-TMG for our edge security, but replaced it with CISCO ASA when Microsoft pulled the plug on most of the Forefront products, and the ASAs now handle our VPN connections.
All well and good EXCEPT that CISCO AnyConnect is STILL not available for Windows Phone, whereas it IS available for IOS and Android.
I'm not big on apps, but THIS is something I'd like to see on WP.
Yes, and I suspect that part of the issue is that MS have not previously (to my memory) made Alpha releases available to such a wide audience. People who have previously engaged in the Beta programs are having a hard time recognising and understanding the difference, and determining whether or not they should be participating in an Alpha release program.
Alpha releases are for dedicated test machines, either physical or virtual. Anyone using an Alpha release on their everyday or production machine, or allowing it to access important data, has rocks in their head.
Having a discussion with facility techs today in basement carpark (as you do) and waving my arms about to explain the problem, I "forgot" I was holding my 920, when it shot out of my hand, flew about 20' across the parking lot, hit a concrete wall, then dropped onto the concrete floor.
Loud "Oooooh" issued from everyone there.
I wander over to pick up what I full expected to be a destroyed phone, only to find it perfectly in tact, with just some minor scuff marks in the plastic edges.
The number of times I've done this sort of thing to my 920 and gotten away with it, I'm starting to think that I couldn't break this phone even if I tried.
Full marks to Nokia, they knew how to build tough phones.
