Thank you Apple, again.

The time came and I took the plunge to upgrade to iOS 9, so I went through my normal process of starting iTunes, making sure that all apps were updated and then proceeded to sync my iPhone and take a local backup just in case.

Getting Wi-Fi working on Windows 10

I took the plunge and upgraded my desktop computer, this is a slightly more powerful machine than my netbook (?) and was running Windows 8.1; interestingly this was originally a Windows 7 Pro machine, upgraded to Windows 8 Pro, then 8.1 Pro and finally Windows 10 Pro (phew).

On top of that, it is running … Continue reading Remember that old software never dies …

Left Behind (2014)

Left Behind (2014) is another bad movie choice by Nicolas Cage, he seems to be making a habit of this recently.  I sat through this with the missus who had already seen it and was astounded that anyone spent any money making this movie.  It also astounded me that anyone who had already seen it would … Continue reading Left Behind (2014)

Visual Eclipse Studio, boy am I confused (?)

This is what happens when you start Visual Studio and Eclipse at the same time, it threw me for a loop when I saw it but it does make sense in a perverted sort of way.  Now all I need to do is to remember what damn hotkey is used for what and I'm all … Continue reading Visual Eclipse Studio, boy am I confused (?)
