windowshatersWindows 10 users are plagued by ongoing problems with Windows 10 updates such as systems freezing, refusing to install if USB drives are present and even dramatic performance impacts on essential software. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that there is a large tranche of users who are refusing to make the move from Windows 7 to the Microsoft operating system flagship. According to the latest market share statistics the number of people still using Windows 7 has remained pretty static month on month. What may well surprise you is that while Windows 10 enjoyed a 44.1% share of the overall operating system market in April, Windows 7 still accounted for 36.43%. That figure hasn’t moved much at all from the 36.9% in December last year.

I found a solution to my blog editing with Windows 10, I found a new version of Live writer in the Microsoft store called Open Live writer. Jumping up and down and dancing a little jig I’m happy again


This decade has been intense—from unicorn colors in everything from our frappuccinos to our hair, to finally figuring out how TikTok works, trends have really kept us on our toes over the last ten years, and fashion was no exception. We’ve gathered the best of the worst fashion trends to hit our social circles in the 2010s. Get ready to blush a little, we know you thought some of these were cool…

2010
Wedge Sneakers

At this point we were still playing Chatroulette on our iMac, so we’ll give ourselves a small break. The cringe-worthy wedge sneaker became popular early on in the 1940s when Salvatore Ferragamo introduced the first version, but it wasn’t until 2010 that designers like Isabel Marant popularized the sneaker format, and the rest is history.

2019
Chunky Sneakers

Everyone from Ariana Grande to Billie Eilish is rocking these oversized clompers. Thoughts are, this trend pertains to the dad collection: dad jeans, dad bods, dad jokes, and now, dad sneakers. Thankfully the year’s almost over…

When is the best time to online date?

As we approach Christmas season (though, I’m already starting to hear Christmas music … too soon!), I want to talk about whether there is a best time of year to do online dating or meet someone.

online_datePeople ask me the same question all the time: “Is there a best time of year to do online dating?” In short, the answer is no. I would first say that the best time for you to do online dating is when you’re emotionally ready and available for it.

Remember that online dating takes time and energy, both the literal kind and the emotional kind. Online dating is not simply about writing a few lines as quickly as you can and posting it to see who writes to you … or doesn’t. It’s about being creative, proactive, and patient. Once you’ve crossed that emotional threshold and you’re ready to take the online dating plunge (the prerequisite, if you will), there is one time of year that it may suit you well to log-on: the week between Christmas and New Year’s. And if that goes well, ride that wave all the way through Valentine’s Day.
