If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

comment Gender neutral photos for users who don't yet have a profile picture
Your gender neutral avatar doesn't look like a person to me...it looks more like this guy: defensetech.org/2008/07/25/nasa-naut-claims-alien-coverup

comment Does providing screenshots help with documentation manual?
Your users can read? And demonstrate this ability when looking at the manual? I'm very jealous.

comment Does providing screenshots help with documentation manual?
@RumiP. at least if they see a screenshot that looks radically different from what's on their screen, they will figure out something is wrong. Otherwise, they may spend half an hour looking for the button to click that no longer exists.

comment Which Date-Time formats do humans prefer to read?
The problem is everyone has a preference and they are all different. At least with yyyy-mm-dd we all read it as the same date. What date is 5/4/21? May 4 2021? April 5 1921? There is no universal preference, and many common formats will be read differently by different people.

comment Touchscreen devices: why did the stylus fall out of favor?
They haven't falling completely out of favor. I chose my current phone (Samsung Galaxy Note II) specifically because it has a stylus. A very well functioning one at that. Great for when I need to run remote desktop from my phone, or make a diagram of something.

comment Should 'site default' be an option in a select list?
This option has the advantage of being able to say "I want it to be 5, and if the default changes, I still want it to be 5."

comment Submit and Reset button, what's the best order?
Whichever you do, make certain when someone hits enter anywhere in the form, submit gets triggers, not reset.

comment When there's inactivity…should we prompt the user for action?
As a parent, I can attest to this: toys that make noises without anyone asking them to get their batteries taken away! Also, when hit the off button to turn off a toy, make it turn off immediately please! No goodbye noises and such.
