Re: Microsoft Surface Pro 8 has a removable SSD

I bought a Surface Pro 7 a year ago, so probably never. But now I wish I'd waited.

The old Surface Pro 3 (with the cutout back) I carry in the car as a travel laptop. I use the 7 around the house as a tablet for morning news reading.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 has a removable SSD

About time. See? That wasn't so hard. Maybe MS got tired of seeing videos of clowns like me, dremeling holes in the back of their cases.

ESD Wireless Wrist Straps: The Shocking Truth

There is f'ing way a wireless wrist strap can ground you to prevent static discharge. PERIOD. Basic science here.

But if anyone persists in believing such nonsense, NASA has settled the debate.

Yes, the author of Open Shell is working on a Win11 version

The author and several people are working on making it work with Win11, as well as find a way to get the classic style taskbar back with traditional notification icons, and an option for unstacked icons for open windows (which I prefer).

Re: 5 weird motherboards that shouldn't exist

I thought the board with the CPU and chipset mounted on the back was interesting. Never thought about ventilation on PCs in an industrial environment.

Timecrimes (2007) - Interesting time travel movie

Someone recommended this, and I saw it last night, and it was very entertaining. It's in Spanish with English subtitles, but that takes nothing away from the movie. First 10-15 minutes is a little slow while we see this poor schmuck puttering around the house until he sees something interesting next...

September Windows Security Update KB5005565 Fixes Really Bad MSHTML zero day

I know I usually recommend delaying updates, but this is a REALLY bad one and needs to be patched. If like me, are deffering security updates for 30 days, and don't want the whole September security rollup, you can just install the patch for this issue by itself, which you can get here: https://www....
