Does W10 have forced updates? 



Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, July 27

There were quite a few comments about unsalted butter being 
healthier, because it is marked that it lasts only a
month, versus salted butter marked to last four months.
That is mostly just for getting a few gullible people
to throw out perfectly good butter and buy fresh butter.

If butter is kept in an airtight butter container in the 
fridge, it won't go bad. Salted butter uses the salt as an 
additional preservative. 

Just keep it in an airtight butter container in the fridge 
and don't worry about it. You will use it up long before it 
goes bad. 

It will go bad only if you keep it uncovered on the counter
or table. 

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jason Hubbard 23, SPOTSWOOD, N.J.
NJ man snuck into home of former girlfriend, hid under bed for 5 days Police in New Jersey announced details late Tuesday of a bizarre break-in. Authorities say the suspect, Jason Hubbard, broke into the Adamcewicz home on Ellenel Boulevard in Spotswood and camped out under the bed in a spare room for as many as five days. Just before 7 p.m. on May 10, police responded to a 911 for a report of an intruder in the house. Upon arrival, officers came in contact with Hubbard in the home. Police subsequently placed him under arrest for criminal trespass. "He was hiding upstairs underneath the bed, in my daughter's bedroom," Margaret Adamcewicz said. "He used to date my daughter five years ago...It didn't end well...He didn't say why he came back. He just picked our house to hide out in. He didn't have a home to live in." The daughter had in the meantime moved away, but apparently he remembered how to sneak into the daughter's bedroom. Further investigation revealed that Hubbard entered the home through an open door when one resident was taking out the garbage. After entering the house, he proceeded into the spare bedroom, where he stayed under the bed for days. He also began charging his four cell phones utilizing an electric outlet under the bed. "I haven't heard from him in five years," Margaret said. "I wasn't scared, I was just angry." Hubbard remained living under the bed in the spare bedroom until her husband heard a noise in the bedroom. When he looked under the bed, he found Hubbard and immediately called police. The couple's 28-year-old son corralled Hubbard until officers arrived. "I don't think he was eating," Margaret said. "I think he just had water under the bed." Asked what her message would be to Hubbard, she said, "To stay away from this house and never come back." At the conclusion of the investigation, Hubbard was also charged with burglary and theft of services (electric current). He was transported to Spotswood Police Headquarters, where he was processed. He was then transported to Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center in lieu of $50,000.00 bail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cory Re: Forced updates in W10 Dear Webby, Is it true that Windows 10, due in two days for those who accidentally clicked that uninvited W10 button, will have forced updates of W10 and main apps? That sounds rather scary to me! Cory Dear Cory Yes, that is indeed the plan Microsoft has. If they discover a major OOOPS, and they are bound to with a new operating system, they will push out a fix immediately, whether you like it or not, and in Microsoft style, whether the fix works or not. Unless you are a 14 year old dweeb with half a dozen pens in your pocket protector, and have to brag about having the newest OS in your daddy's old machine, there is really no need to jump to W10 at this time. The included Edge browser is apparently better than IE, but not nearly as good as Chrome or FireFox. Almost all the other "cool" items to impress teens and brag about in highschool are already available as extensions and add-ons for W7 and W8.1, IF you actually need them. Which is very doubtful. There has not been much demand for them. Windows Media Center will be gone. Dead. Just a fond memory. Donít upgrade to Windows 10 if you rely on and use Windows Media Center on a daily basis! There will be third party apps to take it's place probably within a few months, but initially they might be a bit buggy, especially trying to cope with frantic bug fixes of W10. The same goes for all other third party apps, that you use. Some of them might work OK with W10 initially, but die after one of the forced W10 updates. Some developers will simply give up and wait until W10.1 or until W10.? is stable enough, so that there won't be any more drastic changes. You might remember the W8 chaos, and the quick change to W8.1, and the overtime effort to bring out W10 as fast as possible, so that you might hopefully forget W8. W10 COULD be a great operating system, or it could continue the Microsoft tradition. We will know by the time a new president is elected in the US. Unless you absolutely need to jump to W10, don't rush. The free "update" is good for a year anyway, and if you buy a new computer from China, W10 will be already pre-installed. That is another reason for the forced updates. DELL and other sellers of Chinese computers have cloned the hard drives of many tens of thousands of machines with W10, as it was a few months ago. By now Microsoft may have found some really bad bugs, that need to be fixed immediately. For a year or so you will have to expect forced updates. Developers of third party apps are really worried about those forced updates, since they won't get any advance notice about involved changes. Personally, I am not going to rush into W10 and won't even consider it until year's end. Have Fun!

Next morning morning, he came in with a small sign that read, "I am the Boss!" and attached it to his office door.

It is full of chemicals and preservatives! I had no clue. All you need for some perfect fresh popcorn is some popcorn kernels, a microwaveable bowl, a microwaveable plate that fits on top of it, and, if you so desire, a pat of butter (I prefer coconut oil). Pour your kernels into your bowl. Here, I did about 1/3 of a cup. Place your plate on top. Put a pat of butter on the plate. Microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes. You'll notice you have a bowl of popcorn and a plate with melted butter. Using oven mitts, take out the bowl and plate, tip the melted butter on to the popcorn (salt if you want), and enjoy! You will probably have some unpopped kernels. Save them for the next round! By attosa [109] ______________________________________________________
