When I came into my office this morning, I found that an update ran on my Windows 10 machine overnight. The update was looking for a Windows Login. I prefer to use the old style local login. Fortunately I was easily able to bypass the demand for a Windows Login

I ran into a problem with my Samsung Saga running Windows Mobile 6.1. I was in a location where I was using wireless and the wireless provider had blocked the email ports. I thought “No problem, I’ll just send this when I get outside”. I was still getting the error that “The message(s) cannot be sent…”

I am working with a client to find a piece of software that will meet his needs. One of the software packages requires .net 3.5 or higher. Many of the solutions required downloading software or opening the registry. I found a much simpler solution.

It appears that Dell is once again offering XP to purchasers of new Dell Systems.
The problems with Vista are
I was working with a client’s machine the other day trying to free up some disk space. They had less than 1 gig left and the machine was getting a little quirky. The amount of space used just didn’t make sense.
I just got a laptop primarily for the road that runs on Vista Home Premium. I was setting up the printers from the home office and ran into a nightmare with an HP Photosmart A512 printer that was shared off an XP Home machine.
Vista continues to offer nasty surprises.
Well, I’m still working with Vista Home Premium on the new laptops.
We’ve had some issues and some successes.
We are still advising most of our business clients to try to purchase new machines with XP Pro instead of Vista. We were just referred to a new client who had been going through a nightmare trying to network 3 machines running Wintotal’s Aurora Appraisal Software. They had been hit by lightning and had to purchase new machines. They went with Vista Home Premium.
We ran into a major problem when we were running our first Vista based laptop. The file copy times over the network were horrendous. Slow just barely describes the copy speed. A guy with a quill pen, parchment and an ink bottle could have copied the files faster.
