DigameXtra No. 1130, Monday, Nov. 26th 2018

Welcome to DigameXtra !

The content of this blog site comes from its subscribers/followers but is subject to editing at the Editor’s discretion. The Editor is Naythan.

*Subscribe/follow to receive daily issues by email and gain submitting privileges.
*By making a submission you are indicating you have read and agree to follow the rules.
*Submissions must show the reply contact as the sender’s email address.
*If you want to assist another to make submissions, send it from that person’s subscribed email, not your own. You may not make posts for another person. Doing so is enabling them to post anonymously, which I cannot allow.

Everyone Making Submissions Needs To Read This Next Item !

Standardizing Names & Email Addresses: From now on I will insert the Sender’s name and email address automatically into posts as the Contact name/email, replacing any other email address or name the post may contain. The Submission Rules clearly explain that only the Sender’s email address may be included in posts, and it must include the Sender’s first name. You may substitute a phone number and ask me to leave out any email address. This action is required as I currently have to return too many faulty submissions for correction; Senders either having incorrectly typed email addresses that later require I run a correction, or the submission having the Contact email/name different from the Sender’ email/name. I will use the following format: examplename AT gmail DOT com.

Holiday Publication Schedule: There will be no issues of DigameXtra on Tuesday Dec. 25th, Wednesday Dec. 26th, Tuesday Jan. 1st and Wednesday Jan. 2nd. Sponsor ads that fall on these days will be posted the next issue.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips: Is your Windows 10 computer running slow? It probably has a load of apps unnecessarily running constantly in the background. You can easily disable apps you don’t use. Go to Settings/Privacy/Privacy Settings, then scroll down to Background Apps, turn off the ones you don’t use. Close the Settings window and reboot computer.  Tutorial with pic here, do Option 1 https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7225-turn-off-background-apps-windows-10-a.html
