I've been closing out multiple business websites and telling them they need to find another web person, because I can't keep doing them anymore...  :(

That's strange.  I don't know what the problem might be.  I had to log into GoDaddy today for a business website and didn't have any problem.  Wish I could help, Neil, but there's nothing I can do on your account...

Huh!  Neil gave me the link to the new site, and I checked it out yesterday.  Looking good.  But went to look at it again today and can't get there.  What do you think, Neil?

I see my computer as a tool... and it does what I want it to do. I don't feel the need for change like the millennial's  constantly do.
Sometimes it's best to leave things alone. "Says the old curmudgeon" ::->
And I aint skeerd... just content.
If.... it's a temporary lull... why am I bored right outta my skull?
Man, I'm dressin' sharp an' feelin' dull

That's what we need - an "Old Curmudgeon" group.  Used to be the "Old Geezers", but curmudgeon seems to be more appropriate.

People who's answer to almost everything is "Bah, humbug!"...  ::->

I had W8 on my recording laptop, which was terrible.  My previous recording machine had XP on it, which seemed very good and stable, so moving to W8 was a massive backwards step for me.

I upgraded to W10 with some trepidation, but it seems much better - simpler to use, easier to navigate.  My only problem is that it hammers the CPU soon after start up to run wappx (the updater) which can cripple the machine for about ten minutes at a time.

I also think that my antivirus software updates at the same time so can't blame it entirely on W10.

What the heck .... might as well revive this old thread :)

I like wired connections , but couldn't resist getting a $3 wireless usb network device on eBay .... the answer to the Windows update (metered connection)

Someone said that trick only works with wireless ..... have not tried it.
       Oh the $3 network adapter (Realtek RTL8188EU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter )works just fine with Windows 10 ......... haven't tried the metered connection trick.... yet ;)

Here's something interesting https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/PSWindowsUpdate/1.5.2.2

Might want to be careful with that one , I installed it different on this machine?

Just a thought ..... If your liking your Windows 7 or 8.1 and using GWX Control Panel which works great. Don't bother having it delete the Windows 10 files downloaded to your computer :P
      If you have updates set to download which you should (if you use the computer to browse the web) It will download the files again  :P

Okay ... lets do this one more time ... take 43 http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=1277143

Careful with this stuff , setting this up was not a single installed piece of software and downloading the components took some searching. I'd imagine MS doesn't want you to use this. If you have only one computer ? You may not want to play with this toy. You can turn off Windows Update (Tweaks Tab) :P What's more interesting is the Firewall tab. You can disable outgoing traffic from  things like Edge  ;) Windows 10 is  Data mining the heck out of you and you probably can't see it. It's all very slick. Being able to uninstall some of these Apps might free up some memory. You can put a bag on Cortana's head (Do not let Cortana use location services) Anyone that used the Tweak UI with XP could spend a day messing with Win10Privacy.

Yup.  There are lots of ways to check your network traffic, but one simple way that I use to show people what 10 is doing is by just going to the Task Manager "Networking" tab.  There are times when it's very busy when it shouldn't be.

Basically.........7 is heaven...  ;D
