Win10 – repair guy’s dream

Microsoft skipped 9, heading straight from Windows 8 to 10, which makes me think, how does Bill Gates tell time? Does he ever get up at 9am or is that just not an option?

It’s probably good that they skipped the 9, mind you, because that might’ve meant they would’ve had to put more time into developing their ideas, instead of giving me something that I have to fix.

If you’ve got some old computer equipment to get rid of I can recommend Dave from RecycleIT in Frankton.

It doesn’t matter whether or not it’s working. He will reuse, recycle and/or strip computer equipment for parts, and in some cases will even do pick-ups from your address.

The caveat to that is CRT monitors and TV screens, the big old clunky ones.

Things are tough online now – a business can get hacked and lose millions of customers’ details to hackers.

There is also an underground industry of stolen credit card details, often funding illicit “deal” websites like G2A (a computer game re-seller) or other seedier sites.
