I didn’t have an issue before installing the SP2 update, I didn’t have an issue installing the SP2 update, I didn’t have an issue rebooting after having installed the SP2 update, and I didn’t have an issue starting any of the Office 2010 applications. Windows 8, however, had a major problem. Every now and again,… Continue reading The Office 2010 SP2 update.
I’ll start off by saying that the number of apps available for Windows 8 in general does NOT reflect usefulness any more than applications for Linux distros does. There is a huge amount of junk in the lists, much of it accessible via a browser which is just ONE app. RT has an issue all… Continue reading Surface RT..
This is a Casio W96H.. I have the silver one so that I can tell where the watch starts and the strap ends. See how easy it is to see the time AND the day? It is the first watch ever that showed the day in a size that I could easily read. It has… Continue reading It tells time.. in 2D..

This is it. Google maps presents.. “Road construction in London Ontario”.. http://mapsengine.google.com/map/viewer?mid=zF0moAsEZhZU.kmhJjQXRMTp0 Now this is the kind of info useful on a smartphone, and so set about getting it there. I sent the link by email, opened it and saved it as a favourite. All went well. Was it useful? Well, it could have been… Continue reading What a useful website..
Four systems updated, one Windows 8 Pro, the other three being Windows 7 home Premium. Absolutely no issues to report, not even with IE10. I have no idea why so many have problems with it. I can hear people saying that it’s ok for me because I know what I am doing, but the truth… Continue reading Patch Tuesday – July 2013..

It marks the end of being able to sit on your couch and get news and email on your 54” TV. To make the loss easier to bear, Microsoft make… Continue reading Some North East West South..
