Re: How to safely remove MicroSD?

If you are taking it out to rewrite it, then there is no special procedure as the rewrite will overwrite all the existing files whether they are corrupted or not.
Switch the Pi off first though.

Re: Pi 3 can't get RDP to fully work [CISCO, RDP, WS2012R2]

After re-reading your original question, I'm confused about the way your lan is wired and my netmask suggestion could be wrong. I initially thought you had a lan of 10.1.x.x and a gateway to the wider world, but you seem to have three gateways/routers involved plus a fourth route to the internet, bu...

Re: Problem with the date

The Pi does not have a clock. Once you tell it the time & date, it will remember until it is powered off. It then forgets the time & date because it doesn't have a clock. When you apply power to the Pi, you either have to tell it the time & date or let it connect to the internet and find out for its...

I never had any trouble until I bought the Pi3, and I'm loathe to think that the hardware is broken, therefore it has to be jessie that is just not fit for purpose.

Re: Pi 3 can't get RDP to fully work [CISCO, RDP, WS2012R2]

On eth0, set your netmask to 255.255.0.0
it is currently at 255.255.255.0
or 10.1.10.244/16 instead of 10.1.10.244/24
This will cure your problems.

Re: capacitive touch sensor on the raspberry pi

As I read it, the resistor goes from output/#23 to ground. The output goes to #23. I think the resistor is there to discharge #23 when the output isn't high. So use 3 connection on sensor, VDD, GND & output. The resistor goes from output to GND and output also goes to #23, (rpi input). Clear as mud....
