My thoughts on Surface RT - AuTechHeads Blogs
Yep, I wasn't especially clear on that. I am aware there's an ability to work around this (and assume this is the reference). I meant a 'supported' configuration option, perhaps one that optionally submits sites for review to include in the official whitelist...

You can add sites to the flash whitelist, There is a whole thread on the xda forums about it. I tested it myself and it does indeed work.
How long the loophole stays open for is the big question
Speed up your Surface ... - AuTechHeads Blogs
It was late at night, so this post probably wasn't the greatest/most coherent .. but changing the page file minimum and maximum setting to Recommended definitely seems to have made a substantial and noticeable difference, and I've now had a few confirmations...
Windows 8 RT Phone - what do you plan? - AuTechHeads Blogs
I agree Matt. The push towards "If you can't do something in Metro, just switch across to Explorer" will fail horribly on a touchscreen tablet or RT device. I can't imagine running OS X on an iPad, it would be terrible.
But for people that want a device to...

Coalface Tech Episode 29 - Eh? U TechEd! - AuTechHeads
that is hillarious. Thanks for letting me sub in on the show and chatting!

How to add your KMS keys for Windows 8 and Server 2012 - AuTechHeads Blogs
Is also worth noting that you MUST have SP1 installed. Because our KMS server was on a dedicated VM, it somehow got missed on our patching cycle (we basically forgot it existed). We soon found out when we got the "This update is not applicable to your setup...

Windows To Go - AuTechHeads Blogs
It's actually an SSD drive with a USB interface. I dare say that supporting any USB is too risky due to the high failure rates of crappy USBs, which in turn won't look good for Microsoft.
-- Adam Fowler
I wonder why they've "locked it down" to those two USB keys ? I have a perfectly good 64Gb key I could use...
thanks.. my 3rd teched this year and almost forgot the business cards!!
-- Brent England
Awesome post Brownie. Much wisdom.. wish I was going :-)
I'm really going to miss it this year. Some great sessions, great products, and of course the party.
Yeah, I like to use a laptop for a) furious tweeting and b) taking notes. Occasionally a bit of c) keeping up with work emails (still on the clock!).Good point about the wireless!
These are great tips! This is going to be my first TechEd and I've been wondering whether people are actually going to bring their laptops in during the sessions and whether there are charging stations etc.
I'm also gonna bring my D-Link mobile companion...
