How To Stop Google From Tracking Your Location (Really) 11 months 2 days ago rhiannon

Due to small bandwidth caps and slow internet, even short YouTube videos stutter, stop and try to restart on my internet connection.
I rarely use Google Search, usually only to test something I want to write up, like adding the view image button back to Google images when it was removed recently. I'm not logged into a gmail account most of the time on any browser I use.

I have a gmail account I access with a third party email program. My main email addresses are attached to domains I own and ProtonMail. When needed I use a temporary email address.
These are all accessed through my desktop. I don't have a data plan on my cell phone - it's Android but there's no Google account associated with it and all non-essential Google services have been disabled.

That's how I use Google services. I'm neither for nor against Google. Everyone has their own level of comfort with free services like Google and Facebook, ranging from "I don't care" to "I will never use any Google/Facebook/etc service, ever". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

How To Stop Google From Tracking Your Location (Really) 11 months 2 days ago alsamaster

Valuable information. Personally I have been always vigilant with the tracking capabilities of Google and their diverse “historification” engines. One has to find a compromise point between convenience and privacy.

I do not see this as black or white, I mean, every person in the world should expect theses tracking activities by using such free offerings nowadays, not only coming from Google but other companies as well.

Of course that does not invalidate one fact: if you want to remain private, don’t use Google’s services.

Transitioning from Windows to Linux is like coming out of a dark cave and seeing the light for the first time. :)

Granted any type of change involves a time investment but this is easily achieved without dual booting via a virtual install or spare machine.

Linux driver issues were mostly related to NVIDIA and wireless cards but now it is only the former that still causes any real issues but most of these have solutions in the forums.

Mail clients are as personal as browsers but Thunderbird, Evolution and Claws tend to cover most needs. Windows clients such as eM Client and others work with Linux using Wine to varying degrees.

Overall, the time you will save from Windows updates, Windows software updates, cleaning and security will be time better used on Linux.

If you let me have your machine specs I can possibly recommend some suitable distros you haven’t yet considered.

view
How To Get A Windows 10 Upgrade For Free 11 months 4 days ago rhiannon

That is a multi part answer. :)
- I haven't found a distro I really like that would make transitioning relatively seamless (I've tested 8 or so). Drivers have been an issue.
- Much of what I write here has to do with Windows or requires Windows so I can test it
- I don't like to dual boot. Some dual boot set ups have worked for me but some go south and I have to wipe the drive and reinstall from a disk image. Not hard, but time consuming
- I don't have the time and energy right now for the learning curve a new OS and the programs it runs needs
(and email.....I haven't found a Linux email client I like. Thunderbird is ok, Mailspring looks promising)

I'll move to Linux when it's time. :)

That makes sense. They would want the latest Windows 10 version tied to the Media Creation Tool.

How To Get A Windows 10 Upgrade For Free 11 months 6 days ago rhiannon

That's a good point. I'm assuming you're talking about systems that come with Windows pre-installed, with a product key?
I build my own systems, so I should clarify that the older versions of Windows that I have are (valid, licensed) installation CD's that I purchased. They aren't attached to any hardware.

I installed Windows 10 on my desktop, then re-formatted the disk and did a clean install of Windows 8.1 with the disk and product key with no issues.

That said, I was able to delete a Windows 10 installation from my laptop and do a factory restore of Windows 8.1 and it worked fine.

I've used Advanced Tokens Manager to back up and restore the activation data for Windows and Microsoft Office on Windows 7 and 8.1. It may work with pre-installed systems. (I run Advanced Tokens Manager right after installation finished, and wasn't connected to the internet at the time to prevent any confusion with online activation)
Advanced Tokens Manager 3.5 RC5

Just for info, if you have an old media creation tool, it probably won't work, I tried one I had downloaded last year and I had to go to the download page and download the latest one "MediaCreationTool1803.exe". There is a EULA before the user will get to the two options

How To Get A Windows 10 Upgrade For Free 11 months 6 days ago famewolf

Yeah the problem is I'm pretty sure that once you activate a win 10 license those old win 7 and win 8 keys are no longer valid for install. You don't GET the option of keeping both. I still have a win 7 htpc that records my tv shows using Media Center and don't see giving it up any time soon. Ironically almost all my other computers DO run linux and have for a while now. If you have to have a few windows apps it's pretty easy to run windows in virtualbox on the linux pc with any modern hardware. There are still distro's like bodhi linux, lxle and others that will restore old hardware to new life.

I hang on to my older versions. And there's always Linux, if you don't mind the learning curve.
What I find interesting about that article is this"...the company will soon launch ‘Microsoft Managed Desktop’ which will charge a monthly fee to configure computers running Windows 10 and keep them running smoothly as new updates are released."

The wording specifies that they will configure computers, and keep them running. They've formed a new team to do this through new called the Microsoft Managed Desktop. Focused on businesses right now. That's where the fee will come in. How Microsoft will segue that into charging monthly fees to consumer level users is unknown.

It doesn't say what happens if you don't want Microsoft to configure your computer(s) and keep it running smoothly. Will it be mandatory to use the service, or can anyone opt to not allow Microsoft configure your computer?

Windows 7 Startup 11 months 2 weeks ago Remah

That scenario is extremely unlikely particularly when there are many far more likely reasons for slow startup. Bugs during startup are a common cause: a bug in an update particularly if it affects system restore point; a bug in a device driver; a bug in a service; etc. Many problems cause time-outs which mean that your system can be sitting around waiting for a response until a threshold is passed and the system records an error/warning.

The first thing to do is to find out what the actual boot time is, then compare it with earlier boot times and see where the slow down occurs.

The article How to Use Event Viewer to Find Your PC’s Boot Time is for Windows 7 but it works almost exactly the same for Windows 8 and 10. Just note that when you double-click an event to view its properties then you can select the Details tab to see many of the startup times discussed in this article.

P.S. Now that this article has been split, I have space to extend the article with some details about this sort of issue.

The Gizmo and Instructables sites are at the top of my priority list to visit. You can be sure of accurate, good quality information from the former. Sadly my experience of Instructables is that the quality of the offerings varies from the 5% that are superb down to the utterly, dangerously outrageously wrong projects that lurk at the bottom of the tank. As with all things Web, viewer discretion is (strongly) advised especially anything from the Indian sub-continent that involves high voltages and sellotape insulation.

Thanks a lot. Looks to be a help compared to wading through the endless youtube DYIs. The good ones are well worth it, but sooo many.
Have settled on J-B Weld original (red & black separate squeeze-mix) compound for any plastic to plastic that will be subject to stresses.
Many glues like Gorilla don't fuse plastic to plastic if they are the rock hard, shiny surface kind. May look like there's a bond but first time you apply any stress, twist, impact they'll just re-separate. The compound can be worked for quite a while. Best given the full 24 hours to cure though is pretty rock hard after about 6 hrs air dry. Ends up black vs stated grey. Haven't used the 15 min fast set J-B that is red & yellow.

Gizmo's is Saved! A Hearty Thanks to all who Donated 11 months 3 weeks ago Mighty

I followed Jerry Pournelle's site, and he operated on the Public Radio Model. His site was open and free. But, twice a year, for one week each time, he would add a few words at the beginning or end of each day's posts, asking people to consider donating. (He called it the Public Radio Model, because when his local NPR station started their pledge drive it would remind him that it was time for his own.) His was a fairly soft sell, but he would remind people that the donations justified the time he put into the site, and allowed him to remain free from the influence of advertisers. Words to that effect were his pledge drive text.

I found that to be a very reasonable compromise. He didn't bug people for money, constantly. And, his pledge drives reminded me to donate once a year.

Alternatively, I'd subscribe here via Patreon.
