  • Yes, had seen that news after I'd already checked my folders, then done the cumulative update to the 1809 upgrade. Interesting how things work out sometimes.
  • Was away from my laptop for the last 5 days so couldn't further check my 1809 upgrade after all the dire reports, so was relieved this afternoon when I got back and saw no data loss. Other than the ...
  • Guess I got lucky then - Intel i7,  7500U, sound works fine (Conexant ISST audio) and no apparent change in battery life. Did have some occasional brightness flickering due to Intel's Graphics ...
  • Yeah, installed 1809 last evening (about 2 hours to complete) and all seems well so far. It also changed my background, to a medium blue, but easy to restore as noted. Billiam above mentioned ...
  • About 1.75 years ago I switched back to Windows after 16 years or so in the Apple 'orchard'. Had a fair share of issues with my iStuff but waited for the 2016 MacBook Pro 'refresh' anyway, ...
  • Type "speed test" into Google search - they have their own built-in test, plus a list of 'most' others.
  • Replied in Linux Distros
    OK, not so alarming. Read an article the other day that indicated MS was thinking of pushing this on 'everyone' who wants to continue getting updates.
  • Replied in Linux Distros
    To my great surprise Windows 10 has given me the least trouble since switching to it full time from a dual boot Linux/OS10 iMac a year and a half ago. Since last winter it got to where the ...
  • Yeah, he's been a great help to me too (especially with Linux) over the past couple years. Agree that a ban is unlikely; have never seen him anything but respectful, courteous and knowledgeable.
  • It's just part of Chrome's new 'feature' they rolled out this month. https://www.wired.com/story/google-chrome-https-not-secure-label/
  • It's true, Adobe installs CC software with any install now, including LR6 and even the free Bridge, and CC caused me a lot of grief updating from 6.12 to 6.13. I uninstalled CC after that and LR ...
  • Sounds like you're making LR a lot more difficult than you need to. I second the recommendation to read Martin Evening's book on Lightroom. Luckily, I found it free to check out at the library. He ...
  • My guess is that for "pro" work you'll find the options available for Linux somewhat lacking. Not that Linux software can't do the job but my experience has been that it requires more work ...
  • Sounds like Investor reassurances. How many years was it before we knew about the Yahoo hack(s)? Different thing, I know, but we aren't getting anywhere near the whole (true) story, ever, about ...
  • That's good news, I guess. That the latest patches are initially 'turned off' due to major performance hits is not good news. Looks like it boils down maintaining the performance speed of a young ...
  • Just for reference - installed GIMP 2.10 just now and it's pretty snappy on my 1+ year-old laptop w/integrated Intel HD 620 graphics. Was using 2.9RC without issue but 2.10 seems to have finally ...
  • On second thought (despite what Linus might think) with the emerging tools available to 'researchers', hackers, etc, there is no hardware or software that can stand up to intense scrutiny for ...
  • Me too, should be entertaining. And not only that, it turns out the old Meltdown/Spectre patches already have a workaround for any Win 10 users not updated to 1804. https://www.techrepublic.com/art ...
  • Yeah, I wondered if I'd been overly pessimistic regarding Spectre, was hoping so actually, but there have been scattered reports here and there that indicated further trouble was looming. Now it ...
  • Replied in simplify
    Neither DT, RT nor GIMP would be called 'intuitively obvious' from a user perspective, and I had to dig into the User Manuals extensively when giving them a serious tryout a couple years ago (for ...
