are you using Windows? get your wallet out

starting "real soon now"

Windows is going to charge you monthly for the right to use your PC.

just another damn good reason to continue to keep Windows Updates blocked on my Win7 desktop.

and tonight, I am going to make another Macrium Reflect full disk image of the HDD.

been way too long since I last did that.

EDIT: ??? WTH, 18 months?

that was before Mardonna got so ill..... life got twisted up with her being in the hospital.

I have 2 OEM Windows 7 Professional DVDs to install Windows onto a PC.

I tried to use them last month, and they won't work anymore.
WTH ??

I am going to try again, this time w/o the internet anywhere close to the PC under test.
it is making me wonder if the original DVDs had a Drop Dead Date encoded into the install CDs??

I was doing this on a laptop, and it did not have a LAN cable hooked to it.

That wouldn't be a surprise.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

Now I know why the Windows10 laptop was doing strange things, adding what it wanted and changing stuff. I got rid of it fast. I guess the Windows Vista recovery disks will self destruct when I turn the last laptop into a place for old games, it will not see the internet.
The Windows10 laptop is running Xfce and it's faster too. I switched over the OS this evening. Windows7 will see its final days on the internet soon.

my golf cart now has a convertible roof.

a wind storm came in here about 0700 and tore the top right off of it.
took down a lot of tree limbs, some six inches in diameter.

our burn pile is now 20 feet high again, 3rd time this year.

I'm having excellent luck with 1803 on 4 pcs, with one exception. My HP Phoenix i7 refuses to be accessed on my network. I've tried everything, to no avail. Keeps asking for "network credentials". Grrrr ! Hundreds of "fixes"on Google, Yahoo, etc., that do not work. I can push from that machine, but I can't pull from it, if you know what I mean. So, I have to push.

I decided to alert all of my email friends as well, here is what I wrote to them.


a friend of mine runs a sign shop, makes those wraps for cars, boats, etc...
T-shirts, ball caps, whatever needs a Graphic Design.

last April the Windows Security Updates crashed her Win10 pc so bad that it corrupted both of her backup hard drives.... it cost her $1,000s of bux to have a FBI Forensic quality guy find all of the files that were lost.

here are two links you need to read, and follow up on the 2nd link to the best of your ability. At a very minimum, you need to install Macrium Reflect and start making monthly backups of your Windows PCs now to an external USB hard drive....
