RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

Maybe it's time for an upgrade. I'm learning to fly and I downloaded a simulator to help with cockpit management. I'm only able to get about 6 frames per second even with the graphics turned down. ORRRR Maybe a clean install of W10.

RE: US extends border closure again

It's getting too late to make plans. Even if the border opens, I'm not sure I want to go to Florida until the current disaster gets cleaned up. I don't want to spend another winter in the Great White North even if this winter is as nice as last winter.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

My PC is old enough that I'm not eligible for the inner ring W11 beta (because it doesn't have secure boot) but MS assures me that W11 will run just fine despite that security opening in my machine.Apparently NOT. Just got their new PC Health tool and it says "No Windows 11 for you but we'll keep updating your Windows 10!". Maybe it's a blessing in disguise: what I've seen of the W11 UI, they're trying to make it look like a phone. I have ZERO interest in that.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

I know Linux seems "scar"What does "scar" mean? Scary? I have a dual boot system on one of my PCs - W10 and Ubuntu. On the surface Ubuntu is easy to use but I've been unable to get it to share files with the other W10 PCs on my network or find my network printer. It accesses the internet just fine. It's not scary to me but for the most part W10 does what I need. No need to switch as the webserver I was planning to install I did in the cloud instead. My PC is old enough that I'm not eligible for the inner ring W11 beta (because it doesn't have secure boot) but MS assures me that W11 will run just fine despite that security opening in my machine.

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

It never ends. I have some XP computers running software that I am not paying thousands to update needlesslyHow are you protecting them from known security flaws?

RE: can this possibly be true? 150 amp hours $46.51 cdn

BFL13, No, it is in storage in Regina. I will demoth ball it at the end of August for some long overdue piano tuning out of town work trips. That is "IF" covid cooperates. For those trips, I'll be using the existing batteries for load support. One issue will be getting the fuel out of the generator.Mine's been in storage (beside my house) since March 2020. The advantage is that I can run the generator monthly so I don't have to worry about the gas.

RE: How to bypass Windows 11 limits and install on old PC

I'm not sure that article from zdnet is accurate. Microsoft advised me that my PC will not run the beta version of W11 currently being tested but that it WILL run the pre-release version. This PC is 11 years old and theoretically isn't approved to run W10 which I've been running since before W10 was released. Your PC will probably run W11 just fine.

RE: How to bypass Windows 11 limits and install on old PC

If my older Toshiba cant be upgraded I’d be tempted to try the linux OS in place of Windows.Make it a dual boot system - then you can still have Windows if Linux doesn't work out. One of my PCs is dual boot. I find Linux to be slightly more work.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

However, Canada has over 80% of its over 12 yr vaccinated, while the US is only at 56%!80% with ONE dose. We're 50 something percentish fully vaccinated. Canada is starting to run into resistance getting more first shots into arms. Less than 1% per day now.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Joe Bedford. So you think that Biden will open the border on Aug.9? I wish you were correct. What info are you using to come that conclusion?I read this morning that Biden won't open your northern border until Mexico has the pandemic under control and your southern border can be opened at the same time. Personally, I don't agree with that analysis. The info is that Biden will be under a lot of pressure from border states and that sooner rather than later he will agree to open your northern border.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

I believe the border will be open in both directions for fully vaccinated people at about the same time. Having said that, customs officers for CBSA are in a legal strike position so that could throw a proverbial Spaniard in the works.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

I'm not showing my 'papers' to anybody. Not to cross a border, not to fly in a airplane, not ever. Whatever happened to the HIPPA Law about medical privacy? It's your right to stay home. But you're from AZ. Haven't ever been stopped on the Interstate at one of the "show me your papers" huts? I have.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

2 - While Canada itself is surrounded by two oceans and the United States, the two oceans were not going to be the source of potential increase in COVID cases THREE oceans.

RE: Record heat , 121 in Canada !

Yes, it got to 49.6 in Lytton. Then having survived that, the village gets burned to the ground. Current speculation is that a burning freight train started the fire.

RE: Windows 11 compatibility Check up for your PC or laptop

MS says my PC is not compatible with the alpha version of W11 but it will run the pre-release version. It also says it's not compatible with W10 which it has been running quite successfully since before W10 was released.

RE: Tracfone Top Up from Canada

If Trudeau was not involved the border would be open in a month I bet the USA will open their border soon. But then Trudrau would want to fine Canadians that crossA $5000 fine for unnecessary travel during the pandemic sounds about right.

RE: Fuel Tank Refurb

Just put an extra fuel filter on it before it gets to your generator. You can do the same thing at the pump side. Just Google "fuel pump hose filter". And inline fuel filter.He's not talking about that tank.

RE: Tracfone Top Up from Canada

They let me put mine on hold. I'll update it if we can travel this winter.

RE: Mobile Router that will auto connect to Wi FI- RESOLVED

I used to have a WiFi Ranger that was comprised of a router with custom software and a Ubiquiti Bullet amplified antenna - it was supposed to do exactly what you're looking for though I found it a bit flakey. The router croaked so I replaced it with a regular router / AP. Connected through the AP, it's possible to login to the Bullet. It has several screens that tell you about the quality of signals available. Easy to login from there. Manual connection, but easy and robust. I don't have / need a phone hotspot.
