It will not be an exaggeration to say that Deepika Padukone is among the actors who have a strong social media presence. With Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra leading the pack by sharing almost every snippet of their lives, especially on Instagram, Padukone often uses the photo sharing app to share pictures from shoots, to talk about her close ones and family and even about the causes she support and has a result amassed a huge following of over 18 million people. But, one of her latest posts has left the Internet confused. So much so, somebody has even called it ‘as confusing as Covfefe’. Others turned to Ranveer Singh for some help.

Well, the 31-year-old actor uploaded what seemed like a .. umm.. well it seemed like she is probably trying to send out cryptic messages. And being the loving fans that they are, people got down to deconstructing what she probably must have meant when uploading the picture.

“That a metal curve at the end of furniture, probably a chair or a lounge seat,” “Some porcelain top of a temple or lamp shade i guess,” some offered helpfully. Others, well, blinded by their love for Padukone (not your fault, guys) commented “Superb,” “Owsmmm”(Millenials way of writing awesome) on the picture. “It’s a Fleur de lis , the lily flower it’s the sign of life , light and perfection,” “Symbol of bharat scouts and guides,” wrote another Instagram Good Samaritan.

Well, when we looked up, it did look like a certain Fleur de lis and the symbol of scouts — we’d still prefer the Padmavati actor to not leave us hanging on social media like this. As one of her fan aptly puts, “What is this dear Deepika?”

Sky is experiencing service issues, leaving thousands of broadband customers without internet access.

The company has told the Independent that approximately 32,000 Sky customers are affected.

Users located in the south east of the UK appear to be the hardest hit.

The service issues started early this morning, at around 05:30am, according to DownDetector.

“You might not be able to get online or make/receive phone calls due to a problem in your local area,” Sky has said.

The company has also listed Baldslow, Battle, Beckley, Bexhill, Brede, Brightling, Brookland, Castleham, Cooden, Crowhurst, Guestling, Hastings, Iden, Lydd, Ninfield, Northiam, New Romney, Peasmarsh, Rye, Sedlescombe, Staplecross, Wittersham, Eastbourne, Hampden Park, Alfriston, Newhaven, Peacehaven, Polegate, Pevensey Marina, Pevensey, Seaford and East Dean as affected areas.

The Sky Help Team says it has engineers working to resolve the issues for customers in Sussex.

“Update: East Sussex. Due to extent of the damage. Engineers are still working on repairs. Updates to follow. Sorry for any inconvenience,” it tweeted earlier this morning.

It then followed up with: “Update: Sussex – Engineers have located 7 separate breaks in the Fibre cables & are working to repair damage as quickly as possible.”

The account is also tweeting affected users directly, and has told some of them that its engineers are “preparing cables now for splicing”.

Sky says its engineers are “making good progress”, and that normal service will be restored in Sussex this evening.

Microsoft leaves Windows Server support as-is, doesn’t prune pledged timeline as with Windows 7

Microsoft last week said that the support rules for the Windows Server software would not change, even though the Redmond, Wash. company has said it will curtail support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 after mid-2017.

“There is no change to our current policy,” Microsoft said in a post to a company blog Feb. 19 that focused on Windows Server.

A month before, Microsoft shortened support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 on the newest PCs — those equipped with Intel’s Skylake processors — by 30 months, and laid down a new law that said next-generation processors would require the “latest Windows platform at that time for support.” Older operating systems will be supported only until July 17, 2017 on the new silicon, and then only on specific PCs.

At the time, Microsoft declined to comment on whether the same rule would apply to Windows Server, in other words, whether the newest version ofWindows Server — slated to be dubbed Windows Server 2016 when it debuts this year — would, like Windows 10, be the company’s only OS to be supported on Skylake and later silicon.

Last week’s notice answered those questions.

Rather than limit customers’ choices, Microsoft will continue to supportWindows Server SKUs (stock-keeping units) on hardware powered by pre-Skylake and Skylake-and-later, as long as those servers are certified as such.

Microsoft maintains a list of Windows Server-certified systems on its website.

It’s up to the server manufacturer to obtain certification. The caveat: Certification must be awarded before the Windows Server SKU shifts from “mainstream” to “extended” support, or within approximately five years of the SKU debuts.

Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2, for example, transition to extended support on Jan. 10, 2018. Thus a server maker must get hardware certified for those SKUs by that date. Servers relying on newer processors — the server-aimed derivations of Skylake, specifically the Xeon E3 — can be certified for the older Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 OSes.

“Per our policy we would allow new system submissions for Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 to continue up to this date [of Jan 10, 2018], including the forthcoming Intel Xeon E3 (Skylake) family of processors,” Microsoft said.

Wes Miller, an analyst at Directions on Microsoft, applauded Microsoft’s announcement. “I’m glad to see that if an OEM wants to work with Microsoftto insure the quality of the OS, [Microsoft will] work with them through the lifecycle,” said Miller in an interview last week. “It’s good that they’ve clarified this.”

Not everyone agreed with Miller.

“You guys have lost your @#$% minds,” wrote Bran Nunya, the only reader of Microsoft’s no-change-here blog post to append a comment. “RunningWindows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1? Come July 2017 you are SOL because ‘magic issues that could suddenly arise because of silicon changes that have previously existed in a supported fashion prior to Q3 2017.’ Running a Server? ‘Oh, yeah we know we can’t get away with anything there and force people to a new scheme so we’ll still support those.’

“Everyone is already used to this type of treatment from Apple. If I’m not getting long-term support I might as well go there,” Nunya added.
