Kids school had sent out notice of issue and shortly after that it should be resolved.
Sad- one service “took out” school systems across the US.
This is the centralized world we're moving to.
Decentralized is really the system we want.
Why? Decentralized means more, smaller outages but doesn't solve the fundamental issues. In fact, it would make them worse. Decentralized outages don't make headlines, but they cause more downtime to the end users. More downtime, with far less ability to point to and resolve. They require vastly more resources so the ability to repair is much lower.
While I'm sure T-Mobile is working on it.. when I tested T 2 years ago in Nebraska... only the major arteries of the city had access, and horrible access at that. I technically live outside the city limits by less than 1/4 mile, but other than AT&T, all other carriers service sucks at best and generally don't work.
While true, at least with TMobile you have excellent WiFi calling at home.
so I spoke to a very nice rep at Blissfully named Daniel . Great guy!
I am not sure if they are a direct comparison to BetterCloud.
but I will say that they are at least responsive.
BetterCloud seems to not want any business as they dont pick up the phone and no responses since Tuesday to emails.
The engine may end up being an "Enterprise Mode" like IE I think?
Edge as a browser works well but with a few show stoppers that killed any further usage for us:
1: Downloads mysteriously won't start or just plain stop for no reason.
2: Edge ate my favourites way too many times.
The containerized Edge, Application Guard I think(?), is a great idea. If Edge was as good as they had hoped it would provide a fantastic sandbox experience to protect users from drive-by attacks and bad GET commands from e-mail clients.
At least we are not getting stuck with the legacy ActiveX that keeps rearing its head every once in a while because of IE. 😛
