Windows Logo

This is it! It’s the day the incessant warnings actually do stop. You have until midnight tonight to accept Microsoft’s polite-yet-aggressive offer of a free Windows 10 update. After then, the Windows 10 upgrade will come at a cost.

Adding a Simple Image Caption

Filed under: Main,Video — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

In an earlier post, I made a video on how to stick an image into a document at a simple level. At the same basic level, you can quickly add a caption below the image. It’s not a clever trick, but it’s something that requires a few extra steps when you want to do it correctly.

Replacing the Graphics Card

Filed under: Main — Tags: , — admin @ 12:01 am

As I predicted in the last blog post, my son’s PC received a new graphics adapter. Unlike the old one, this newer model featured 2GB of graphics memory. It also sports two fans, and to us that feature was appealing because we figured the issue was the system overheating. We were wrong.

Replacing a Power Supply

After two days, a new 500W power supply was delivered to my abode. My son and I took no time to install the beast into his PC.

My son’s PC has an annoying habit of restarting. It goes just fine for days, then it will run for 20 minutes, restart, and repeat that cycle all day long. Seeing how I’ve written books on PC troubleshooting, I figured that I would take a stab at fixing the thing.

A Picture in Your Document

The Day I Wanted to Compute Outside

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

It was a warm summer day. The sun was high in the sky. I was hot inside (no air conditioning), and the outside deck was so inviting. So rather than say in the dimly-lit apartment, I prepared for my first computer adventure outside. Ho-boy! It was going to be fun.

Get Windows 10 Nag Nag Nag

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

I believe I may have received the final Windows 10 upgrade warning. It was up on my Windows 7 PC screen this morning, shiny and bright. The question is, if I decline now, will it continue to bug me? Is the nightmare finally over?
