VMRC VSphere 6.0 Scaling issue on Windows 10

I recently had to work on a VMWare guest and no matter what I did I could not get the mouse to work.  It turns out that the VMWare Remote Console is not Windows 10 scaling aware.  The fix is to set the Windows 10 scaling to 100% (The default is 125%).  Once you do this the issue completely disappears.  I guess that is what happens when you don't upgrade your infrastructure.  It works perfectly fine on ESXi 7

Original artwork by me.  Apples and pears.  The two images were hand painted by me photographed and turned in to art.

Privacy cat

Last week Penny and I attended our first wedding post pandemic (without restrictions) and we stayed at the magnificent Chateau Yering country house hotel here in Victoria's Yarra valley.  Of course I see a major fluffy moment as soon as I walked in the room. Sitting on the bed was this...  They call them privacy cats.  If you want to be left alone you simply place the cat at your door.  I think this was Decastella, named after the room.

To me this was the easy one.  I was going for a better head shot for use at work. I really like the light and dark. My right side is always the darkest :)
