Gobi7: Day 12

Quickly, I have been loving the extra mobility of the Gobi. Tonight I turned wifi security back on at home and was able to get the right config changes made for the wifi to connect with a password.

In SR related news but not specific to the Gobi7 90 day trial, someone dropped me a note the other day and had me utswitch over to a different box that was on the Sun corporate network... what did I see before my eyes but a login prompt for a couple of windows sessions running under win4solaris (I am guessing). I was able to login to an XP instance and poke around for a bit, after that I headed back into my $SHELL and cleansed myself. The technology totally rocks.

I mentioned to Craig that I am just geeked on thin clients and their use. I drew out a scenario for him that just excited me to think about. Say there is an area hospital that is planning an EMR roll out and now they are going to have to place either laptops in all the docs hands or lots more terminals (currently fat clients) around the place. Now what if they could hand out smart cards, install sun rays all around the hospital, in the rooms in the docs offices... you get the point and let the doc, nurses... move their session from place to place. No fat client nodes to backup all over the campus, no laptops with data walking all over the state, less power being consumed, lower total cost of ownership and increased security. Makes my heart skip a beat. Now if I could just find some folks in Southfield to talk to.

For what it's worth.

SR@H goes wireless

After talking to enough people or maybe the right people I am going to be testing out a Gobi7 here at home and where I roam as my thin client remote connectivity solution. Since the Gobi7 can be configured to work with Sun's Sun Ray @ Home program I will be all set up. The unit should get here in the next few days and then I have 90 days to put it though it's paces. I mentioned to the folks sending my out the loaner that I would blog about my experiences in using it so stay tuned for updates. Who knows, I might start being as "thin" as someone else we all know.
