Remote control for virtualized desktops

As some of you are no doubt aware, aside from being the codename for Microsoft clustering technology, "Wolfpack" was also the term used by the wartime German navy to describe hunting groups of U-boats. These are covered in Lothar-Günter Buchheim's excellent novel Das Boot, wherein we find a strangely appropriate reference to the word. The increasingly disaffected Kapitänleutnant of Das Boot explodes: "They've christened the group 'Wolf Pack' - marvellous!" says the Old Man. "Apparently they have a kind of court poet at Staff Headquarters who thinks up this bullshit - 'Wolf Pack'! 'Daisies' would have done just as well…" Curiously prescient for a 1973 novel set in 1941 to get the MS marketing team's number so exquisitely. ®
