I enjoy programming a great deal.

I started with a Sinclair Spectrum (Basic)

Then BBC Micro's at School

I went to Norton College in Sheffield (learnt Pascal)

I went to Nottingham Trent University (learnt C++)

I worked at JI Software in Bedford (taught myself Visual Basic)

Now I'm working my way through C#.

I've spent a good while working with a number of CRM systems; from Maximizer (Contact Management), to Siebel and now Microsoft CRM.

I'm a Microsoft Certified Professional (in CRM and SharePoint), and have been for 9 years now.

comment Download speed from AmazonAWS
Ok, well it's a good use-case for Azure then. Download staging.... Fibre connection is from Zen Internet (in the UK, using the BT infrastructure but no throttling).

Downloading from AmazonAWS to home is slower than downloading from AmazonAWS to Azure, then from Azure to home.

comment How can I access a Web server in a VM from an iPad?
Yes, they are both on 10.64.244.n where n is either 122 or 82 on a 255.255.255.128 subnet, which I think puts them on the same subnet

comment How can I access a Web server in a VM from an iPad?
Generally, yes, though not always. However, the issue I think is that the host can see the web server on the VM, and the iPad can see a webpage on the host, but the ipad cannot see the web pages on the VM.

The iPad is using WiFi, though based on that, could use either the Internet or the WiFi hotspot available using Connectify.

Sadly, no joy. That gives me 'Windows Server 2008 Features or Role Services check failed.'

As I said in my question, Microsoft have a process installing SharePoint on Windows 7, which I followed (there's a link in the question). I'm just wanting to install Office Web Apps onto it. Thanks anyway.

comment Should I reinstall Ubuntu?
Absolutely, wait a few days / weeks before you upgrade. I upgraded this morning, and due to a graphics issue on 9.10, that wasn't in 9.04, I'm moving back for now. Will try upgrade again in a few weeks when more people have done it... :)
