We see a lot of these RDP sessions going idle with memory-hogging applications open, like IE/Chrome, ERP software, Adobe Reader, etc. When you have dozens of sessions, these small bits of RAM can really start to add up. And because the uses are needed 24/7, the sessions can’t be terminated. I thought it would be nice if there was a way to say “Hey, this IE process has been idle for an hour, lets just kill it.”

While working as an admin you come across some unusual requests. We have a conference room at work where we’ve been requested to have a fixed-position USB webcam, but they want to locate the usb cable approx 25+ feet away. They’ve also requested not to have a lot of running cables in the room, so this means also hiding the cables away in the wall. This would also mean some kind of adapter/extension cable. Looking around online, you can buy USB extension cables (some powered), that run 50-ish feet, but they’re usually in the $40+ range. I’m cheap, so I wanted a viable alternative.
