How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

DigameXtra Office Summer Hours: The office is closed from Friday at 9pm until 9pm Sunday. I don’t do anything DigameXtra related during this time slot. DoctorLaptop continues to work Monday thru Saturday as usual.

DoctorLaptop’s Computer Services: Windows 10 User Alert! Windows 10 does 2 major “Creator’s” updates per year. You will have problems if you fall 2 Creator’s Updates behind. Microsoft is also changing the way they designate new Creator’s Updates. Windows 10 v1803 is soon to go “out of service”. You can check your version by clicking search (magnifying glass icon next to Start button), type in WINVER then ENTER, then click WINVER at the top of the search results. A system info box will display with your Windows version. If you have not updated to v1809 (old designation =  Yr 2018 Month 09/SEP) or v19H1 (new designation = yr 2019 1st Half) do so now. Go to Settings>Updates and click the Check For Updates button and let them install. You may have a message there telling you a new Creator’s Updates is available, if so then do it. Always restart your computer after installing updates. Then repeat until you get a message saying “no more updates available”.
It is suggested by Microsoft you prepare your computer before doing Creator’s Updates to avoid installation problems as an interrupted Update installation can break your  computer: do a full scan with your antivirus and run a System Integrity Scan (elevated cmd > scannow). Once the Update is completed, it may take several hours even on a fast connection, go to System Restore, make sure it is turned on, and create a new Restore Point as all your old ones will be deleted by the Upgrade!
If you prefer, leave it with me overnight and I will get it safely Updated to current. The price depends on how far behind you are and how much pre-update prep is required.
