New Office

By daviddh | Thu, 07/28/2022 - 09:30

DHA has been in business for over 3 years now, and we have worked out of our home offices and traveled to customer sites for all of that time. Yesterday, we picked up the keys and badges for our new 5th floor office. It's a small space, but we now have easy access to conference rooms and other facilities. Having a commercial address also puts us on a better footing to hire and sponsor H1B Visa engineers in the future.

With that said, all engineers can still work from home and travel to job sites as necessary.

Windows 11 Announcement

Microsoft officially announced Windows 11 today. It's hard to believe that Windows has been around for 35 years now.

Didn't Microsoft once say that Windows 10 would be the last numbered version of Windows?

Well anyway, here is the Windows 11 page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-11.

...and here is the announcement video: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/event.

Indusoft Web Studio is now AVEVA Edge

By daviddh | Tue, 04/06/2021 - 15:30

Indusoft Web Studio is now AVEVA Edge. Same product, just a different name.

You now have to buy it through an AVEVA distributer and use AVEVA customer support. AVEVA Edge fits in with their larger suite of software offerings.

The price is also a little higher, but still way below all of their main competitors.

We'll see how this goes.

Windows 10 God Mode

By daviddh | Mon, 05/25/2020 - 07:45

What an awesome name for a desktop folder that you can "conjure" with a secret code!

Also known as the Windows Master Control Panel, this handy folder consolidates and groups most of the settings in Windows 10. God Mode first made its appearance as a feature in Windows 7. It is probably not suited for the average person, but power users, IT folks and most engineers will find it useful.

Here's how to enable God Mode:
