Win 10 experience …

21 Aug

After a two day tussle with Windows 10 I discover that there is no fix for my problem – whereby my system occasionally freezes up. Windows 10 is not compatible with my Motherboard and at present there are no Drivers to remedy this. Therefore I will likely go back to Windows 7. There is a built in component that will allow me to do so.

This being said, I haven’t enough experience with Win 10 to recommend it or to piss on it. I’m guessing it will work OK for most people – though I note a great many users are flooding MS with issues. Typically.

At your own risk. win 10

Win some … Lose some

win 10 broken

Finally got my computer back from the infirmary …

Installed Windows 10 …

System locks up. Can’t even access Task Manager.

Upon reboot I get this: “Asus (Motherboard) setup: Does not support this operating system WNT_6.2H_64”

My tech says this is a Windows 10 problem. Uh huh.

In the process of contacting Microsoft …

Wish me luck.

Hitchbot brutally slain in Philadelphia …

July 27, 2014 – August 2, 2015

The loveable (?) (OK, likeable) hitchhiking robot Hitchbot met his brutal demise whilst sitting on a public bench in Philadelphia, US of A – the City of Brotherly Love. Love, evidently not extended to mechanical entities – even as harmless as Hitchbot.

hitchBOT | A robot exploring the world\

“hitchBOT’s trip came to an end last night in Philadelphia after having spent a little over two weeks hitchhiking and visiting sites in Boston, Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and New York City. Unfortunately, hitchBOT was vandalized overnight in Philadelphia; sometimes bad things happen to good robots.  We know that many of hitchBOT’s fans will be disappointed, but we want them to be assured that this great experiment is not over. For now we will focus on the question “what can be learned from this?” and explore future adventures for robots and humans.”
