Windows 10 Sux

Posted in Computer Software, Technology with tags , , on 2018/11/29 by rmolby

So, I got really upset after the umpteenth time of Windows 10 rebooting the computer without asking me that it is okay to do so or to ask if I have work that needs to be saved.

I operate on a laptop specifically for this reason, having an UPS and the on-board battery to keep me alive so I can leave things running while I take a break etc.

But no, Microsoft in their infinite wisdom know just when to reboot my machine… right when I have walked away to take a break and I wasn’t careful and saved my work!!!

So yesterday it happened to me at home, and today it happened to me at work, and that was the final straw!

I can’t switch to Linux at work due to work requirements and restrictions, but at home I can, and I WILL!!!

So, over these next few weeks I will be documenting my efforts and struggles switching from Windows 7/10 to Linux.

Wow, this Microsoft 6419A class has a lot of good information in it, but I have to say, the class is only as good as your instructor.

My instructor, Terry Smith, here at New Horizons in Irving (Dallas), Texas,  is outstanding. He really knows his class material and is able to fine tune it to the students.

If you are working in the Server or Network Administration field and only have experience up to Server 2003 environments, and you are either planning to implement, or have implemented Server 2008, I would highly recommend taking this class, and not to downplay the abilities of any other instructor, but if you are lucky to get Terry Smith, you will learn a lot.

Microsoft has come a long way when it comes to servers and infrastructure, and just like Windows XP and Windows 7, with Server 2008 Microsoft has finally reached a major milestone of functionality.

Dell M6500 BSODs and lock-ups

Posted in Computer Hardware, Computer Software, Employer Work with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 2010/11/01 by rmolby

My employer bought me a Dell Precision M6500 laptop so I can run VMware virtualization on the road, but the darn thing has be unreliable as heck, randomly locking up solid or BSOD‘ing.

I finally got tired of it and Googled the issue, and guess what I found?

Apparently this is a known condition and there is no fix for it right now!!!

I sure hope they find a solution because I can’t effectively use this thing if it locks up or BSODs all the time…!
