We are always looking for deals on items we purchase in our house. With the arrival of Jack our eyes have turned to deals on baby items. Amazon, in addition to their Prime Service, has another program called Amazon Mom. This program offers free shipping, if you don't already have a Prime Account, and further discounts on subscription items. I really like that you can schedule the delivery of these items and get a great deal on them. It removes some of the hassle from our already busy lives and saves us some cash. I highly recommend for new parents. If you don't already have a Prime account this service is free to sign up for, to remain eligible you have to spend $25 a quarter to stay in. Additionally, you can return an item bought under this program for up to one year for free. That is pretty killer IMO.

For the last week I have been doing a majority of my work on a Wyse thin client laptop. I created an Windows XP VM on our ESXi cluster. I have used a combination of WiFi and my LTE MiFi on Verizon for connectivity. I'm currently just using RDP to connected
So far performance has been acceptable in every situation. The only hiccups I have found in performance come with PDF files or graphic intensive web pages. Keep in mind the performance in all instances has been very usable. I mainly notice visible delays of a second or two.
For the most part I forget I'm using a RDP session. I would like to see what some protocols with better graphics compression / performance like PCoIP etc.
