Juniper broadens SD-Branch management, switch options Juniper has taken the wraps off new software and switches that are designed to broaden user options in deploying software-defined branch offices and enterprise networks. The company bolstered its Contrail SD-WAN cloud package to include support for SD-LAN-specific operations, such as provisioning of new devices and managing branch office LANs. "From one cloud portal, customers can now provision Juniper EX Series switches to manage LAN fabrics and configure LAN virtualization and security policies in the same way they operate their SD-WAN environments," wrote Manoj Leelanivas, chief product officer at Juniper, in a blog about the enhancements. "This automated functionality simplifies operations to reduce costs, streamline workflows and leverage the WAN and LAN network for connected security.

Filabot: Plastic Filament Maker by Tyler McNaney Filabot is a 3D plastic extrusion system. For example mostly any type of recyclable plastic, such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, soda bottles, shampoo bottles, product packaging, and many more, can be processed through the Filabot to make usable 3D printing filament. This will allow for users to remake filament from an old print that is bad or not needed.

Uncle Sam: If It Ends in .Com, It's .Seizable When U.S. authorities shuttered sports-wagering site last week, it raised eyebrows across the net because the domain name was registered with a Canadian company, ostensibly putting it beyond the reach of the U.S. government.

React: Finally, a great server/client web stack - Eric Florenzano’s Blog We started with static websites, simple pages that could link between each other. Then we started constructing those pages on demand, customizing the contents of the page for each individual user. Next we started using Javascript to add more interactivity, and these pages started to become more like applications. But now we have XMLHttpRequest, and most new projects are moving towards building their pages entirely in the browser. But when we do it purely in the browser, we have to make quite a few concessions: search engines have a hard time indexing that content, for example. It also takes longer for users to see the rendered content (not in every case, but in many, many cases.)

If you like to pin tens of programs to the taskbar, you might like the idea of a second taskbar. The second taskbar allows you to pin apps, just like the primary taskbar. Since Windows 10 doesn’t have a provision for two taskbars on the same screen, we need to go for a third-party tool.
