My ideal workplace

- Working remotely with access to all services\resources.

- Replacing all telephone handsets with smartphones which are relying on VOIP to the site exchange, this should provide the handset the exact same functionality on-site and off-site.

- Owning integrated data shows in all computing devices with high definition display, so that whenever I am, I have the ability to convert a vacant wall to a big screen; moreover, presentations will no longer have a specific venue or a data show setup.

- Establishing an automation service for all the monitoring tasks, so that I would be notified of any normality from this service rather than from the end users.

- Having the same user experience when accessing work network from any site.

Remotely disconnect RDP (Remote Desktop Connection) Sessions

If your problem is the following dialog, then you are within the right hands.
Of course, required permissions are no question!

Command prompt:
>qwinsta /server:
SESSIONNAME       USERNAME                 ID  STATE   TYPE        DEVICE
console                                    0  Conn    wdcon
rdp-tcp                                 65536  Listen  rdpwd
rdp-tcp#2         user 1                   1  Active  rdpwd

rdp-tcp#11        user2                    2  Active  rdpwd

- So, there are two logged in users with session IDs 1 & 2.
- To disconnect user with SessionID=2:
>reset session 2 /server:

A confusing French rule: des vs de

In front of a plural adjective, "de" is used instead of "des".

Par example:

Ce sont des arbres hauts.
Elle a de petits pieds.
