How to fix a program without the source code? Patch the binary directly | Ars Technica UK
"To make space for the new length checking, the part of the program that copied the font name was ever so slightly deoptimized, replacing a faster routine with a slightly slower one, and freeing up a few bytes in the process."

Why Apple's 'What's a computer' just rekt Microsoft's 'real computer' worldview | iMore
Microsoft's new "real computer" comments juxtaposed against Apple's new "what's a computer?" iPad ad.
Yesterday was strange. I opened Twitter and saw a remarkable juxtaposition of story links. In the first, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was characterizing Apple as a "luxury goods manufacturer" and telling reporters on iPads that they "need to get a real computer." In the second, Apple released a new iPad spot asking, "What's a computer?"

What's a real computer? - Six Colors
I like Satya Nadella. I think he’s been a good leader for Microsoft. He’s building a Microsoft that’s more open to innovation and change and letting go of a lot of old ways of thinking. In the late Ballmer era, Microsoft did some incredibly inventive things, only to have them kneecapped by its CEO’s Old Microsoft way of thinking.
That all said, this was stupid:
As he walked into the room along with Microsoft India head Anant Maheshwari, Nadella spots that I and a colleague have iPads and cheerfully says, “You need to get a real computer, my friend.”
Amazingly, today Apple released this ad, titled “What’s a computer?”, in which a kid uses an iPad Pro in countless ways. It feels… familiar.

0patch Blog: Did Microsoft Just Manually Patch Their Equation Editor Executable? Why Yes, Yes They Did. (CVE-2017-11882)
The recent Patch Tuesday brought, among other things, a new version of "old" Equation Editor, which introduced a fix for a buffer overflow issue reported by Embedi.

The "old" Equation Editor is an ancient component of Microsoft Office (Office now uses an integrated Equation Editor), which has been with us since 2000. That's 17 years, which is a pretty respectable life span for software!

Really, quite literally, some pretty skilled Microsoft employee or contractor reverse engineered our friend EQNEDT32.EXE, located the flawed code, and corrected it by manually overwriting existing instructions with better ones (making sure to only use the space previously occupied by original instructions).

How do we know that? Well, have you ever met a C/C++ compiler that would put all functions in a 500+ KB executable on exactly the same address in the module after rebuilding a modified source code, especially when these modifications changed the amount of code in several functions?

SharePoint SQL Collation - Best practice
Default Collation of the SharePoint Instance:
This configuration you have to Change if you install the instance on the SQL box. If you know, you will have only SharePoint in the Instance, you can configure this with Latin1_General_CI_AS_KS_WS. The result of them is that all System databases (Master, tempDB ...) has also the SharePoint collation and we do not loose Performance in SQL internally. Unfortunatelly you cannot Change the Default collation later on.
