News & Articles

Windows 10 News Semi-annual Update v1909 was released last week. It was offered to me this weekend. With these big, semi-annual Windows updates I suggest you wait at least 2 weeks after it is first offered to your computer before you install it. Remember, you must have approx. 7 to 9Gb or more of free space on your hard drive to install the semi-annual updates. Those of you with small notebook laptops with 32Gb solid-state hard drives often lack the free space needed to update. The work-around, as explained in the popup error message that displays when you try to update and it fails for lack of space, is to plug in an external USB memory device. I suggest you use a USB 3 memory stick, 16 or 32Gb (8Gb is not enough), formatted to NTFS, with no data on it. Plug it in and continue the update; you may need to restart the unit, and retry the update. Other external memory devices or those containing data may work, but it is not nearly as reliable as the previously mentioned method. -DoctorLaptop. Contact info in sponsor’s section.



Kittens Need Home: I am looking desperately for someone who has a garden or lives in the campo to have 5 ( or less) kittens of 7 months old . They have all been spayed, injected, wormed etc. At the moment they are living in my mother’s residential home in the garden and are being fed every day. The problem now is that they are going inside ( obviously as cold) and the home do not want this. They have threatened to get rid of them and I’m very worried for their safety!
They would be happy living semi wild with an out house to go in for warmth and food every day. They are quite friendly now especially the 2 boy tabby’s. They like company and sit near us. I’m sure in time they will all become tame. One of the male tabby’s eat from our hands and can be stroked.
There are 3 tabby’s and 2 black cats. Very attractive and sweet.
Or maybe someone would like one or two!!
Please can someone help.
