Furniture Upholsterer: Did I imagine it or did I read in Digamextra this week that somebody had placed an advert for upholstering furniture ? Have checked several Digamextras and can´t find it. Maybe it was a recommendation. Can you help? Many thanks

Tech Tips by DoctorLaptop

Windows 7 Update Problem Latest Info: Until the dust settles with this Processor Chip Threat fiasco I recommend all Windows 7 users turn off Automatic Updates. Holding off for 4 or 8 weeks on updates won’t be a problem, that will give time for a “proper” fix; the current panic response fix is poorly conceived. I have had a dozen calls in the past 3 days where user’s Win 7 computers have had big problems after attempting to do the recent batch of updates, which include the processor patch I previously warned about. There are 2 problems occurring. One, if the update installs, the computer is now very slow, as if you are on a slow internet connection. Two, the computer tries to restart itself after the update, or tells you to restart it, but that leads to a startup failure/restart loop and endless error messages. Problem #1 has no remedy and as of now cannot be undone! If you have Problem #2 try turning it off and on a few times, waiting 5 minutes between restarts. You will probably have to force the shutdowns by holding down the poser button 5 secs.,  something I normally warn against; in this case there is no alternative since it’s stuck in a restart loop with no access to on-screen shutdown buttons. If it still won’t start you’ll need a Win 7 install dvd/usb media to boot from to  run recovery tools. I can fix Problem #2 for you if necessary. Call DoctorLaptop to make an appt to drop it off, I’ll need it overnight. My contact info is in the Sponsor’s Section of every issue.

DoctorLaptop: I heartily urge anyone with a laptop computer problem to consult with Dr. Laptop. I did yesterday, seeking advice about two competing word processing programs. I am, much like my Dell Latitude, an antique and especially in the dark when it comes to the digital age, which seems to have blown by me. But Naythan (Dr. Laptop) promptly and in detail offered some stop-gap and cogent, practical advice as well as suggesting long-term solutions. I recommend him without reservation.

NO POSTING OF OBSOLETE ELECTRONICS FOR SALE! In order to protect the less tech savvy buyers, who expect fully operational devices, I will NOT post obsolete items, even if labelled as “obsolete” or “with limited functions”. This will also apply to computers running Windows 7 when it  becomes obsolete 14 January 2020. Those units need to be upgraded to Windows 10 (if supported for the upgrade), or else changed to Linux, to be offered for sale here after the January 14th Windows 7 expiration date.  I will not be accepting ads saying “has Win 7 but could be upgraded to…” after 14 January 2020. If you have a Win 7 computer you are considering selling, I suggest you do so this summer/fall. Don’t submit ads for any device with limited functions, that are no longer supported for updates, or cannot run current versions of apps. The Editor’s decision is final, there will be no drawn out discussions, or replies to demands for documentation, regarding obsolete items. -Ed.

With increasing practice your power, confidence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life. Everybody can practice my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. The adaption of the Yoga postures to every single student is very important for me as we all have different bodies. I mix Ayur Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students.

Wishing you all a wonderful week

Tech Tips by DoctorLaptop

Intel Processor Chip “Security” Fix That Slows Your Computer 40% – Update:
Info is slowly coming out.
-Note this threat is only a problem with Intel processors, not AMD or ARM.
-Apple says it has released it’s version of the “undesirable” chip patch in Mojave 10.14.5 and Safari updates last week for Apple devices but provided no list of involved models that I could find.
-This patch can not be undone.
I previously explained that this so-called security patch for Windows 7 era computers  can slow your computer up to 40%. Computers that shipped with Win 8/10 are not involved. Microsoft and Apple are trying to play it down without sharing much real info, saying only some users will be affected. Deeper research reveals the fix involves disabling a feature called hyperthreading. This is the very breakthru feature that expanded processor capacity to far greater levels than ever before; it allowed Windows XP to grow thru Vista into Windows 7, with it’s greater chip capacity requirements. Installing this fix is sending your processor’s performance back to 2005 standards! In my opinion this patch has nothing to do with protecting the vast majority of users from a threat. From studying the limited amount of patch code Microsoft has made available I believe this fix involves a threat only “in-house networked” business computer systems need be concerned with. In plain terms, it allows low level workers in an office of networked computer stations to access their supervisor’s computers without a password. I saw nothing to address any internet based threats. Turning off hyperthreading to fix internal network security problems is like pulling half the spark plugs from your car’s engine to prevent your kid from borrowing it without permission, when all you really need to do is change the garage door lock. I suggest holding off on applying this security patch update until more is known.

Announcements

NO POSTING OF OBSOLETE ELECTRONICS FOR SALE! In order to protect the less tech savvy buyers, who expect fully operational devices, I will NOT post obsolete items, even if labelled as “obsolete” or “with limited functions”. This will also apply to computers running Windows 7 when it  becomes obsolete 14 January 2020. Those units need to be upgraded to Windows 10 (if supported for the upgrade), or else changed to Linux, to be offered for sale here after the January 14th Windows 7 expiration date. I will not be accepting ads saying “has Win 7 but could be upgraded to…” after 14 January 2020. If you have a Win 7 computer you are considering selling, I suggest you do so this summer/fall. Don’t submit ads for any device with limited functions, that are no longer supported for updates, or cannot run current versions of apps. The Editor’s decision is final, there will be no drawn out discussions, or replies to demands for documentation, regarding obsolete items. -Ed.

Possible fraud regarding Nerja water treatment: Some local politicians are being investigated for possible fraud, as Nerja residents have been charged for sewage treatment on their water bills since 2011, despite the treatment plant never having been completed.
A magistrate dealing with the case, Laura Crossa Gil, says that the first judge in the case will be the local elections on 26 May, when many of those politicos being investigated will be hoping that uninformed Nerja residents, who still don’t have a working treatment plant, will be voting for them despite the ongoing fiasco.
This long overdue investigation has gained momentum with the aid of former Councillor and local businessman, Jorge Naváez, who owns a business on Burriana beach, who has repeatedly reported the authorities for the lack of water treatment as he claims raw sewage is tipped into a stream which passes his establishment before going into the sea. http://www.surinenglish.com/local/201905/17/current-former-mayors-give-20190517102430-v.html

Tech Tips

OnLine Scam News: By now we have all heard about the scam emails that claim the sender hacked your webcam and has naughty pics of you, and demands payment not to send copies to all your email contacts. Some scammers in Spain have taken this scam to a new level by incorporating “catfishing”. Catfishing is a type of deceptive activity where a person creates a fake social networking presence, or fake identity on a social network account, for attention seeking, to create exploitable fake friendships,  bullying/blackmailing, gaining access to your Friends List or as a romance scam.
Spanish police have arrested 23 people accused of belonging to a criminal organization carrying out sexual extortion online. The suspects allegedly made more than €100,000 from their victims across 24 Spanish provinces.
The group are claimed to have lured their victims in to visiting live sex-chat sites before blackmailing them for money with threats of telling their families what they had done.
Messages from the gang allegedly contained phrases including ‘€600 if you do not want your wife or anyone to find out.’ Police claim the group even threatened to injure victims or their family members if they did not pay out, using messages including, ‘you’re going to pay one way or another.’
The first case came to light in February 2018 and Police claim to have so far received around 80 complaints from victims since.
While getting caught up in such a scam is embarrassing, never pay on-line blackmailers, ignore them, don’t reply. If they have your home address or if you feel the slighest bit actually threatened, report it to the Guardia Civil Internet Crime Division asap. Don’t delete the emails or messages until the police have copies of the original emails. These emails contain hidden metadata that will aid the investigation. The metadata is lost if you only copy/paste the text of the emails. If you want to retain some anonymity yet still register a report of the incident, which helps investigators, here is the online place to report EU Internet Crime. Of course the Spanish links are to Spanish only sites. https://www.europol.europa.eu/report-a-crime/report-cybercrime-online
Also note this is a big reason to be very careful how you use social media and to NOT accept Friend Requests from strangers.  For example, blackmailers can scan your Facebook/Snapchat/etc to compile a list of your friends/contacts. The blackmailer can use this list as evidence to make the threat appear credible, as if they have hacked your computer for your Contacts when in fact they have not had access to your computer, just your public social media. More fake proof of a hack is collected from hacked password dumps sold on the darkweb. Just because a blackmailer knows a few of the passwords you used 5 yrs ago is no reason to believe he’s actually hacked your computer. Old Gmail, Yahoo, DropBox, Faceboox etc data breaches exposed all those old passwords long ago.

Daniel Torres Quartet at Ventana Abierta Jazz Club: First Statement
We say goodbye to the jazz season with the presentation of Statement One, the first album of the saxophonist from Malaga Daniel Torres. In this record, Daniel, whose musical training took him from Malaga to Barcelona, Amsterdam, New York and Toronto, has brought together a group of major international jazz figures (including the famous Indonesian pianist Sri Hanuraga “Aga”) to perform his original compositions. Some of the members of this newly created group have worked with great artists such as Sonny Rollins, Brad Mehldau and Lee Konitz.
“Statement One refers to a first declaration, to the fact that following a lengthy process of maturing musically and personally, this is the first time that I present my own compositions to the audience and leave evidence of this in an album.” Daniel Torres

Recommendations

URGENT UPDATE to Thursday’s Windows 7 Update/Patch info post “Microsoft Warns of a Monster Computer Bug”, dubbed ZombieLoad. The latest reports warn that if you apply the update patch now being offered by Windows Update you may experience a 40% decrease in processor capacity! Do you want your computer to operate 40% slower? ZombieLoad raises a new threat: To lock down and secure a system from this attack fully, you have to disable Intel’s hyper-threading. That’s why Google just disabled hyperthreading on Intel Chromebooks. Newer computers that shipped with Win 8 or higher are not at risk. Since we are close to the end of Service for Windows 7 in mid January I am not willing to lose almost half my processor capacity for a patch that will be irrelevant in 7 months. The patch is irreversible, even a full system reinstall will not undo it. It will thereafter always be a slow computer even if you install Linux on it! Ruined! Personally I quit doing Win 7 updates in January; the last year of every version of Windows has been full of annoyances. I suggest if you plan to keep using your Win 7  computer after January, either with Win 10 or Linux, immediately turn off Windows Updates and instead do a full system scan with your anti-virus weekly.  This will also prevent you from getting some (not all) End-of-Service warning popups as we approach January’s end of Win 7. Yes, there are rumors that MS will offer a patch to fix this patch’s slowdown effects, but it is far more desirable to have an unpatched processor than a double patched processor.

Recommendations

Recommendation: Very disappointed, that Michela who has done my nails to perfection for many years, was not working at Sole Salon Nerja anymore, just to find out that this smart, sweet young woman has opened her own Studio Jeyyy! She located at “Calle Antonio Ferrandis 33, Nerja”, mobile phone 642 354 056 (by appointment). The Studio is just down from the Super Sole supermarket with plenty of parking in the area.
I’m so happy I did not lose her and thinking there are probably many others like me wondering where to find her. So hurry on over, all you pretty girls and ladies that need beautiful nails. Patricia, Torre del Mar; deassola AT gmail DOT com

 

Thank you Naythan + Ironing Recommendation: A special thank you to you Naythan for your help with my request for a person to do our ironing. Also your information regarding WhatsApp. You are providing an excellent service, and a lifeline for people like me with mobility problems who are practically housebound.
A lovely lady applied for ironing work and started within 24 hours. If anyone else is interested I wish to recommend her, I have her permission. Her name is Maria O. Tel.(0034)626683359. I can personally recommend her ironing. She informed me her approximate charges before she came, and was very reasonable and I have no hesitation in recommending her to others. She also offers other services, in the sewing line. Regards Judith/Competa

WINDSCRIBE VPN– A Glowing Review From the Trusted Internet Authority “www.tomsguide.com”:  “Even though the Opera browser VPN is completely unlimited and completely free, we can’t recommend it except for use as a video-streaming proxy service, because its network performance is simply awful. Even ProtonVPN’s deliberately slowed, but also unlimited free service is faster. For a much speedier free VPN service, albeit one with a 10GB monthly data cap, try Windscribe, which we consider the best free VPN service. “ from https://www.tomsguide.com/us/opera-vpn,review-4496.html .

WindscribeVPN Pro and Free Versions: Windscribe (Canada) provides access to 480+ servers in 51 countries in the Pro Version. Both versions are very fast. Pro version is IPTV, Netflix and P2P friendly! Very simple install and setup. Comes with both System-wide VPN and also a browser plug-in VPN. Super secure using powerful AES 256-bit data encryption. NEW! Static IP addresses available, from country of your choice. You can get a “genuine”  UK IP address for your current location! No risk- three day cash back refund test period. A free version (not for IPTV) is available providing servers in USA, UK, CAN, FR, NOR, SWISS, GER, NL,  Hong Kong & Romania.  Windscribe sponsors DigameXtra, making a modest donation for every VPN purchased, but only if you use this red link.

TECH ALERT! Back to back “I told you so” moments, 2 threats in 2 days – Tech Editorial by Naythan, Editor
In yesterday’s issue I revealed that the “supposedly encrypted, high security” WhatsApp app does in fact have a code flaw I had predicted over 2 years ago that exposes ALL your data to hackers! To quote Chris Coulter, Tech VP at Blackberry’s Security division, “Myself and millions of others inadvertently put all that at risk by blindly trusting the app. This is certainly one to take seriously.” Well this guy is obviously not a  DigameXtra reader or he’d have expected this! (Editor takes a bow.)
Now here we go again. I told readers that as the end of Windows 7 support approaches (15Jan20) Microsoft will try to force all users of pre-Win 10 systems to upgrade to Win 10 and abandon older computers that won’t run Win 10. In today’s Wall St. Journal:
“Microsoft Warns of a Monster Computer Bug, in a Week of Them” The company has patched the flaw but says it is ‘highly likely’ it will wind up being exploited by malicious software. Microsoft Corp. took the unusual step of warning that a computer bug it has now patched could be used by a cyber weapon similar to the WannaCry worm, which spread across the globe two years ago. The flaw affects Windows 7 (and Vista) and Windows Server 2008. It also affects Windows 2003 and Windows XP- older versions of Windows that MS doesn’t usually patch (after they become obsolete). But in a sign of the severity of the bug, MS released XP and WIN 2003 patches as well.” So here comes the push I warned about. Soon upgrade popup warnings will appear, trying to scare/trick you into upgrading to Win 10, like happened when Win 10 was first released. More events to encourage us to abandon our older computers will follow, likely to involve older processors MS will declare no longer trustworthy. However Linux will run fine on these not-safe-for-Windows computers, so don’t throw them away, upgrade them to a superior operating system! Several flavors of Linux are so Windows 7 like you won’t notice much difference doing the basics.
