Thanks to the DigameXtra Supporters the annual server bill has been paid, and I have been able to upgrade the WordPress security for added protection from email-address harvesting bots. I also upgraded the photo function and can now accept pics up to 2Mb in size, double the previous 1Mb limit! Special thanks to Ingeborg from Torrox for facilitating the payment process!

UPDATED 13 SEP. Easy Way to Shrink Pics: Photo submissions now have a 2Mb size limit, no exceptions. You can easily shrink pics for free at this site. Just visit the website, browse to pic (step 1), then jump to step 4 and choose “Max file size” as 2000 Kilobytes, click resize button, then click “download to disk” to save the smaller pic to your computer. Try it, it’s simple! http://picresize.com/

DoctorLaptop’s Computer Repairs & Services:
I repair what others can only replace. All makes. Most jobs completed overnight.
What’s coming in the next big Windows 10 Update v1809 in Oct?
There are some significant, overdue changes such as an updated Clipboard with new Clip & Paste functions, and fairly silly updates like support for 157 new emojis. And of course they have reshuffled the Settings. What I found especially disturbing is the addition of these 2 terms in Settings: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Here is an example of AI at work. We already have predictive spelling, type 2 or 3 letters and the word pops up before you can finish typing. Now your comp will guess the next word before you finish typing the current word. I certainly don’t need Google to put their spin on what my next word should be. And I don’t need Machine Learning (since it surely knows better than me) altering settings I specifically set in a certain fashion.
