Windows Drive Mappings

Recently, TheSmartPanda blogged on a common problem found when trying to use drive mappings from a command window running in elevated/admin mode.

Just wanted to share another way of dealing with this.  This Microsoft article explains why this problem occurs and documents are more permanent workaround.

What is a modern software solution?

Oracle’s vision for the future of PeopleSoft.  Recent conversation between Marc Weintraub (Senior Director of PeopleSoft Product Strategy) and Jo Randles (Cedar’s Head of HR Optimisation).

Jo: What would you say to those individuals that might think that PeopleSoft is considered a bit old-school?

Mark: "I turn that around and ask customers... you're looking for a modern solution. ... I consider a modern solution is 
  • intuitive and simple user experience
  • available on mobile devices
  • has incredible amounts of functionality
  • can be deployed and provisioned rapidly
  • can get new updates without disruptions
That's what PeopleSoft does now.  I would say PeopleSoft is a modern solution"
