Geeksultant | Your I.T. Consultant of Choice

What we do. has been synonymous with terms like Citrix, VDI, Microsoft and VMware for many years. In the past, if you were an end user customer, or a VAR looking to augment your team around VDI projects, Geeksultant was the place to call. That is still true today. The good news, we’ve expanded and now offer services for many other technologies as well.

Geeksultant is a premier provider of IT consultants for all virtual technology projects such as Citrix, Microsoft and VMware directly to our end-user customers.

Our B2B (Business to Business) rates are some of the best in the industry allowing the VAR to resell our services with favorable profit margins in mind.

In other words, we can help you grow your business by becoming an extension of your team. The best part, no employee costs, no office costs.

We provide services around many technologies, including Citrix, Microsoft, VMware, Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper, Nutanix, Azure, AVD, O365, M365, F5 and many others to our partner VARs and our direct customers.

Windows 10 Start Menu and Action Center Won't Open


If your Windows 10 PC or Laptop won't open the Start Menu or the Action Center when you click on them, usually a reboot will fix it. But who wants to shut down all programs, close all their files and wait for a reboot? No one.

Microsoft has still not fixed this issue. It's been listed as a priority issue on support forums for a year now.

There is a way for a quick fix without shutting down or rebooting.

Steps to fix the issue:

Dear Microsoft Support ....


Dear Microsoft Support. Thanks for taking my call about my Windows 10 issue. But, let us be honest and clear about my Windows issues. I did not call you unprepared. Yes, I've rebooted my PC. Yes, all hotfixes and updates are installed. Actually, my problem arose after I installed the latest hotfixes. Oh, wait, no I did not install them, you did, automatically, without my input. So yes, this is your fault and please stop asking me to reboot and if I have installed updates. Can I please talk to a real Microsoft engineer and not someone in a 3rd party and foreign call center?

Attending Citrix XenMobile 10.x Virtual Instructor Training


Another virtual class is underway. This time I am taking the Ingram Micro sponsored "Citrix - Deploying Enterprise Mobility Solutions with Citrix XenMobile - CXM-303" online, virtual instructor led class. Students are in all US time zones, yet we are taking the same class at the same time. Citrix's GoToMeeting and GoToTraining are awesome products. I plan to take the XenMobile certification exam next week. That gives me all Citrix certifications under my belt. Honestly, I haven't seem much adoption of XenMobile (or other MDM, MAM, EMM) in the SMB space.

Conference Badge Zip Line - What?


Every year I attend a multitude of I.T. conferences attributed to the top tier hardware and software vendors such as Citrix, Microsoft, VMware and more. ... and every one of them gives you a badge to wear. One with your picture, another with a RFID chip in it so every vendor attending can scan your badge to place you on their email list. Truthfully, these conferences are all the same and they are getting lame. Time for a new format, are you listening dear vendors? Anyway, that's another story. Back to the badge dilemma.

Ten Commandments for Stress Free Programming (Shared)


Too funny not to share. Not sure who the original author was.

Ten Commandments for Stress Free Programming

1. Thou shalt not worry about bugs. Bugs in your software are actually special features.

2. Thou shalt not fix abort conditions. Your user has a better chance of winning state lottery than getting the same abort again.

3. Thou shalt not handle errors. Error handing was meant for error prone people, neither you or your users are error prone.
