How to Hide or Restore Hidden Windows Updates in Windows 7 and Windows 8
With the Windows 10 issues floating around recently I decided to hide a few Windows Updates. Then I realized I didn't remember how, so I went looking and found this article and thought I would share. Just in case anyone else doesn't know or doesn't remember how to hide (or restore hidden) Windows Updates. :)

99 Tech Life Hacks You Should Know
This is a really great collection of hacks, some have been around for quite a while, others are new, I found all of them to be of interest or use. 

Morning Short: Get Your Daily Dose of Fiction
From the site: Improve your writing skills. Start your day pleasurably - get one fantastic short story in your inbox, at 10AM each morning.
I haven't been using this service long but I've been enjoying the stories so far. 

Google About Me
Control what people see you about across Google's services. From the site: "You can change your name, photo, sites, gender, birthday and occupation. If you click the "+" button, you can also add work contact info, personal contact info, education, work history and places. You can change what other users of Google products see about you. For instance, when you connect with people on apps like Gmail or Hangouts, you can choose to share certain additional information with them, like your birthday and phone number."

Found several sites and tips on the hongkiat page that I will be using. Thanks!

You're welcome! :)

Hongkiat looks like a website worth adding to my other bookmarks. The phrase "start your day pleasurably" doesn't strike me as an example of good writing so I will pass on that site.

I normally value and enjoy your comments, crosseyedlemon, but today I am perplexed.

In a world where presidents and pundits regularly use 'hopefully' without a verb in sight, I am unable to find a reason to dislike starting my day pleasurably.

Wishing all the same!
