I’ve probably posted about this before, but I’m not a huge fan of windows 8. The desktop is fine, but having another windows be the start menu sucks.
My wife and I also have Win7 machines. I’ve decided my windows 7 computers can stay that way. Wife decided to get Win10. Her upgrade has already happened, while I have to sit here in Win8.1. Guh. I wasn’t having that so I found the Win10 iso from Micro$oft’s site and started the upgrade.
Well, it turns out that there is likely a reason Win10 has not yet been released to the Win8.1 computers. It didn’t work so well, so I had to roll back to Win8.1. Guh. At least I got the roll back. I could’ve probably done a full install W/O any problems, but I don’t want to hit the reset button. I ain’t got time for dat anymore! So I’ll be sitting here on Win8.1 until the update comes from Windows Update. I’m just happy that I was able to revert without losing anything other than time.
What with Google depreciating (turning off) pagespeed on 3 August, I had no choice but to go back to cloudflare. I liked cloudflare, but pagespeed really sped up this slow home connection. Unfortunely, the non-Verizon branded pagespeed like service is over $200/mo. Not feasible for my home based site. Of course, if it was anything less than me being a total geek, it probably wouldn’t be hosted locally.
Ultimately, it SHOULD mean that there won’t be any downtime. I hope, although I probably wouldn’t know about it as my server is on my local network.
My windows 8.1 machine to windows 10. I was never a huge fan of windows 8/8.1, so when Microsoft said they would upgrade windows 7/8.1 machines to windows 10 without cost, I decided to jump on it. Even though I wasn’t getting the upgrade to windows 10 icon in the taskbar. Here’s how I fixed it:
-Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Schedule Tasks
-Task Scheduler library > Microsoft > Windows > Setup >
-GWXTriggers , select ‘refreshgwxconfig-B’ and run it.
It’s been a while, but I’ve forgotten how fun gentoo is. Fun and frustrating at times. I’ve got it running AMP, which I’ll work on getting my sites moved over as a backup for now. It’s also running cgminer (using scrypt) to generate a very small amount of litecoins. Woot!
