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.

-To my person: My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practicing Yoga since more than 17 years – nearly every day – and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practice regular. 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. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way.
Wishing you all a wonderful week
light & love Kiki

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.
