Context.Request.ServerVariables["SERVER_NAME"]

This is another server variable like REMOTE_ADDR only less interesting. It may just tell you: localhost

vPOD stands for virtual performance-optimized datacenter

This is a term that comes up in rolling stuff out to production not unlike "hot fix" or "in-flight change" or "root caused it" although these other terms are not good things to be talking about.

Modules in the Angular 1 stuff don't have specific files.

They just get stuff jammed into them here and there in code like so:

angular.module('whatever').service...

Charles Simonyi back at Microsoft!

I'm learning that he was the mind behind Word and Excel and that his startup just got bought by Microsoft so he is going back to work there.

copy and paste text in PowerShell

The usual Windows means to copy and paste really misbehaves in PowerShell. You may, instead, drag a selection over copy in the PowerShell window and then right-click in the selection to copy it to the clipboard. You may then Ctrl-C into Notepad to paste the copy in there. Right-clicking at the PowerShell prompt can paste in copy from the clipboard, be that copy procured in PowerShell's shell or Notepad or wherever. This taught me these tricks. I'm starting to drink the PowerShell Kool-Aid more and more. When you need to put out fires quickly its strange ways can be frustrating.
