Let’s face it, Microsoft should pack up and go home and stop trying to make operating systems!
And while they’re at it, APPLE should step up to their game and open up the Apple OS to all (modern) PC hardware.
Microsoft have continued to lose the plot, ever since Windows XP. It’s been downhill with bloatware, FUTware and Mess-Up-User ware ever since.
Even then, DOS was the best (as in efficient and user simple) operating system, Microsoft ever did.
Why Windows 10 Sucks:
This could become a very long article. For now, I’ll just stick with my Windows 10 survival guide. AKA “How Windows 7 Luddites can keep working under Windows 10.”

SO I made a huge mistake – more of that in a moment !
Staying on the Internet thingy…
Sometimes maintaining a web presence, isn’t so easy, but I’m sure you know that !
You see not all Internet Registrars are built the same. There’s propagation time and then there’s just incompetence.
I’m not sure what or when it went wrong, but when I started on the web, 123-reg.co.uk was my go to registrar for my domain names. I must have registered over 500 with them over the years. But today I have 3 – NOPE make that 2 – HOORAY !
I often have to change hosting, for one reason or another. Usually because all of a sudden a service goes unreliable and then the support fails to kick in. It didn’t matter when you didn’t need it, but now it’s all gone wrong, you need someone to step up and say “hey yeah, we’re the hosting company, let’s do the hosting bit for ya”.
Naturally it’s best to have backups and sort it out yourself. VPS over shared has solved nearly all of my problems in this area, but occasionally the “tin” just seems to have gone mental (more likely the virtualisation shell with a VPS) and even a previously healthy image restore doesn’t resolve it either.
But that’s not my point for today… Read the rest of this entry »
We have choices! What are you doing with yours?
When I built my new PC recently, I’ve found myself not even bothering to install Microsoft office again (so far).
But this morning I found myself reaching for Google docs. BAD IDEA! Google is not your friend! They are an ad machine!
So I’m ultra pleased I remembered ZOHO.com who have FREE & paid plans.
In 40 seconds I had created a spreadsheet and added a CHART, plus there’s a lot more (obvious) advanced features than in gdocs like pivots etc..
ZOHO is not the only choice by far, the main point is NEITHER IS GOOGLE!
We allow ourselves to be dominated, but WE HAVE CONTROL!
You can vote with your hearts and wallets!
ONE morning you may wake up and find your gmail closed, for 101 reasons (including Read the rest of this entry »
Feeling like a millionaire?
All too often, life can seem insurmountable, even pointless.
We often hear the expression “give thanks” for what you have. But we often (usually) only recognise it when it is gone. We appreciate what we once had, only once we lose it and things turn for the far worse.
Your God often jokes with me when I think things can’t get even worse, and sends me a reminder that they ALWAYS can!
This TED video, from Chenoval survivor, reminds me what we take for granted.
