Windows Live Essentials 2012!

The link above is for a CNET download page for a copy of Windows Live Essentials 2012, a free set of programs that Microsoft had created that I used to use all of the time.

Included in this set of programs is a mail program, a messaging program, a movie making program and the one program that I used the most: Windows Live Writer. You can install all of the included programs, or select just those programs that interest you, like I did with Live Writer.

Live Writer is basically a blogging program that you use directly from your desktop rather than having to log in directly in order to post on your blog, and before the website became corrupted and lost, all of the previous posts had been created using Live Writer.

This is why I was thrilled when I discovered that CNET still had the program available for download and installation!

I am writing this post using Live Writer, and the pages Graden, Lucas, and Rain were also created (or recreated) using Live Writer.

It seems to work just fine on my Windows 10 laptop, with no issues connecting with my website or posting pictures with the same properties I designated in the program.

So, if you want to be able to post without having to log in directly to your website, I would suggest getting a copy of Windows Live Essentials now, before it’s no longer available!

So, in Part 1 I told you about my dealings with a couple funky Nokia phones. And it got worse from there.

For his birthday, I got my partner a new video card and power supply for his desktop. After they arrived, I then shut down his computer and opened it up. I took out the old video and old power supply. As I tried to install the new power supply, I discovered that there was no way in hell this thing was going to fit into his computer case. It was just too cramped in there.

Fortunately, we discovered that the power supply he had was perfectly capable of powering the new video card, so I installed the old power supply and new video card. I then booted up the computer to find nothing worked.

Odd… It should have booted just fine. Continue reading »

Technology and I have been having a bit of a battle in recent weeks.
It started about 8 weeks ago when my phone (a Nokia Lumia 1020 running Windows 8.1) decided to get screwy. The screen started flashing like a strobe light, and the phone played through my entire collection of ringtones before turning off. Turning it back on, I discovered that the battery life, which had been fully charged, was now at a measly 5%.
I shut it down, booted it back up, and discovered the battery life was now at 2%. So I turned off the screen, plugged it into my work computer and just left it, praying that no one would call me and possibly get a dropped connection. By the end of the day, it had charged back up to just under 80%. Continue reading »
