My Hobbies & Interests

  • My favorite quotes
    If you can count the number of times you have prayed today, then you haven't prayed enough.

    The reasons some brothers and sisters give for not being at the meetings are the very reasons they should be there.

    We need to be at the meetings to "incite to love and fine works."—Hebrews 10:24. But how can you incite if you're not in sight?

  1. Sounds to me like this guy got his info from windowsreport.com, even though he passed right by the screen saying it was an April Fool's Day prank. The other websites he quotes also may have gotten their info from the same source, and just passed it on as is. Windows 10 has only been out for about three years, and they're looking at another OS already? It doesn't sound likely to me. But we'll see what happens in the future.
  2. I'm not sure about that. I found the above info you mentioned at windowsreport.com. However did you notice that info was dated April 1, 2017? That should be your first clue, Sherlock. Scroll down the page, and you'll see this: See also the Editor's Note in italics just below it.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm all in favour of a clean computer, and I already use a couple of cleaners (CCleaner, KCleaner, etc). But I'll take a look at this one too. (Would you believe I'm typing this on my Windows 7 laptop?)
  4. That's an interesting video. But the timing I get with my new computer is about like the SSD in the video. I'm not sure if it's because of the Optane memory thing...(?) Of course, this computer has Windows 10 (the old one is Windows 7). I had already heard it was faster with just about everything, including shutting down in 4 seconds flat! My personal opinion: Maybe I'm a die-hard, but I am still attached to Windows 7. I like the looks of it better than 10, and it seems to be a lot more reliable with everyday stuff even though it's slower. I prefer it. And if you ever have to use System Restore, the speed of Windows 7 has Windows 10 beat by hours (no exaggeration)!
  5. I've been reading all the posts above about SSDs and their advantages over HDDs. But I'm still confused. My old laptop's HDD crashed in about 2016 (700GB, about four years old), and I had to get a new drive installed. The technician at the place I took it to recommended SSD, saying it would be a lot faster. So I opted for the SSD (500GB). However I didn't see any noticeable difference in speed. It was about the same as the old one. About a month ago I bought a new laptop that has an HDD (5400 RPM), and it's a lot faster than my old one with the SSD! So I'm not clear on what the hype is and any advantage there's supposed to be. (However, it shoud be noted this new laptop uses something called Optane memory, which is supposed to make things run faster.) To a technologically challenged brother such as myself, please answer in simple terms.
  6. Interesting. Our congregation has the memorial invitations, but none of the publishers do yet. The campaign starts Saturday. But we have a Circuit Assembly on Sunday, and therefore no meeting this week! How will we get the invitations in time? I pointed this out to the Service Overseer on Sunday after the meeting. He said I was too smart and told me to keep it down. But he also said the invitations would be given (somehow) to the group overseers before Saturday.
  7. At least that article had one accurate point to make. "They honored their faith," it said in the last paragraph. I smiled when I saw that.
  8. You're hard of hearing too, huh? When you watch the broadcast on JW Broadcasting, click on the cog wheel icon at the top right... Once you're in there you can select the option Display subtitles when available. Make sure you click on Save when you're done, and then X to exit. Then you will see the "transcript" as it plays. (That's where William gets his transcripts... from the subtitles embedded in the videos.)
  9. The topic of depression has been dealt with in many publications previously. And for good reason! Many of our brothers and sisters suffer from this unsettling and sometimes unexplainable illness. It's good to see something addressed specifically to adolescent depression again, as it was in 2017. (Click on the picture.)
  10. All right, I've added the Lingala version of the song to my collection.
  11. Yeah, but so far it's only in 720p resolution. But who cares? Oh Yes! The real reason I'm on here at this moment...! The original new song is entitled We Are One. I've converted it to mp3 format for those who would like to listen to it on their respective phones... It's part of my song collection, and will stay there until the "official" version is released in a couple of weeks.
  12. There are a few for children on Tracey's Theocratic Treasures, or for a nominal charge there's Karyn's Etsy site.
  13. Hey! Nobody's posted the link yet. Here is where it will show up first... https://www.jw.org/download/?fileformat=All&langwritten=E&pub=jwb&issue=201903
