The Friday Funny: Star Wars Christmas Paper Snowflakes
With the holiday season fast approaching, the thoughts of many system administrators turn towards thing like the annual holiday office party, selecting gifts for their fellow sysadmins, or making plans to decorate the server room with something festive. So in the interest of providing some holiday decoration inspiration to IT professionals everywhere, I’d like to present what is arguably the coolest paper snowflake designs in the history of paper: Star Wars-themed paper snowflakes. Here’s an example of one featuring the X-Wing:

The website Matters of Grey has an entire collection of other Star Wars-themed snowflake designs, featuring everything from Princess Leia and Han Solo to the TIE fighter and the Millennium Falcon. Free downloadable templates and other info are included, so you now have a perfectly good use for the reams of extra and/or lightly used paper that piles up near every printer and copier in the office.
Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
