WINDOWS 8

 WINDOWS 8 When I first tried using Windows 8, I wrote “Don’t worry, I’m not going to do a page about Windows 8. That would be like trying to train goldfish to herd sheep. Microsoft has lost the plot, so here’s a few random pictures and links” But over time Windows 8 computers  became increasingly […]

WINDOWS 7

WINDOWS 7 Seven is going to go down in history as the last decent Microsoft operating system. It’s as fast as 2000, so it seems quick compared with XP, and it has some improved graphics. The taskbar at the bottom of the screen is handy. Windows Explorer is much improved and is OK for moving […]

WINDOWS XP

WINDOWS XP XP was a workhorse. Everything ran OK on it, and it did the job. Because I used it for a decade everything was where I expected it, which saved time. With a few changes it looked OK – all the default ugly green graphics could easily be eradicated. When I wanted to get […]

WINDOWS 2000

WINDOWS 2000 2000 was well designed, stylish, and worked well with old computers.

THREE YEARS AGO I DID A STEEMIT POST SAYING DITCH THE FLAGGING

THREE YEARS AGO I DID A STEEMIT POST SAYING DITCH THE FLAGGING And I was right wasn’t I? – flagging is one of the main things that has screwed the platform. Now a bunch of geek numpties are running around flagging stuff and nearly all the people posting real content have left. And if there […]
