Fuzzy Windows 8.1

I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 and noticed that all of my applications got fuzzy. Apparently, Windows has discovered that my display has a "very high resolution" (1920x1080) and tries to make everything better by scaling the fonts to a point where they get fuzzy. This was driving me mad as I thought my contact lenses were the cause. What resolved it for me was to disable scaling for each application.

How to configure EAP-TLS

Far too many times have I come across a wireless environment where it has been said that the authentication method in use is none other than EAP-TLS. This is good as EAP-TLS is not only the most secure method but also the easiest method from a user perspective, a rare combination in this day and age. Still, when looking over the configuration, it appears that most environments are using PEAP-MSCHAP v2 which isn't EAP-TLS at all. How can this be? Perhaps because PEAP-MSCHAP v2 is default. So, how does one configure EAP-TLS, then?
