This will be a quick one: I am trying to install a game from the Microsoft Store and it is stuck in “Pending” for days. I searched around and the suggested fixes did not work for me. Reset the Store Cache via wsreset.exe Run wsreset.exe as Administrator - no change. Relog into the Store App Profile picture in the top right - no change.

This post shows how to list the CPU cores of your Azure Arc connected machines in a table.
In this article I explain how to use Azure Logic App to monitor unattached disks in Azure. This is a very common scenario in Azure, where you have a lot of VMs and you want to make sure that you don’t have any unattached disks. This can happen if you delete a VM and forget to delete the disk, ‘I will delete this later…’. Can also be adjusted for other resources like NICs, NSGs, etc.

My blog has a bit of legacy: From Wordpress to Hugo. From Azure App Service to Azure Static Websites on Azure Blob. And in this post, I tell you about my migration to Azure Static Web Apps. Azure Static Web Apps Azure Static Web Apps are generally available since May 2021 - and I waited way to long to migrate this blog to it, they are amazing! CDN, CI/CD, Custom Domain with SSL - pretty much everything that I puzzled together in previous iterations - “AS A SERVICE” for free (or little money).
I use Release Annotations to tell Azure Application Insights about notable changes. In exchange Application Insights can then tell me, that e.g. my latest deployment is slower than the previous one. I got a lot of value out of this so i wanted to have that for a current deployment. My build agent is Ubuntu-based - and the provided examples in the documentation use PowerShell scripts to annotate the deployment. I could obviously install powershell on my build agent, but it is just a single REST call so another dependency on the build agent was too much for me.
GitHub Enterprise Server with Azure Active Directory Authentication (GHEAADPROXY) With GitHub Enterprise Server Version (GHE) 3.0.6 as self-hosted VM, you can configure SAML authentication backed by Azure Active Directory. This protects the web interface, you get conditional access policies with Multi Factor Authentiction powered by Azure Active Directory. Sessions do expire after a configurable lifetime, then the user must re-authenticate. With the current out-of-the-box design, GHE does not require the same authentication on the git command line.
