Tips and picks

Tip of the week: How to get Windows 10 20H2

If you’re on Windows 10 version 1903 or newer, check for updates: If your PC configuration is not blocked, you’ll get it. More technical users who aren’t worried can simply get the update from the Update Assistant or the newly-available ISO.

Tip of the week #2: Here’s how to “fix” Alt + Tab in 20H2

Don’t like how Edge tabs appear as their own “apps” in Alt + Tab? Here’s how to fix that problem. (I hate it.)

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft, the live events consultant

Microsoft isn’t running just its own live events. It’s now seemingly in the business of helping others run live events (and supplying the infrastructure for them to do it. Like CTA for the upcoming virtual CES 2021.

Codename pick of the week: Akri

Is Kubernetes driving you over the edge? You need Akri. Akri (translates to “edge” in Greek) is a new open source project. Akri  (sort of) stands for A Kubernetes Interface for the edge. This is for edge devices too small to run Kubernetes themselves and which users may want to connect to Kubernetes.

Beer pick of the week: Evil Twin I Voted Today pale ale

It’s yet another good pale ale from the evil brewers at Evil Twin brewing.  But it’s got a very timely theme that’s being pushed (thanks Tired Hands brewing) to breweries to make their own variants.

    <p>Paul commented that he didn't understand the need for the old Control Panel. The Mail panel includes settings which are no longer available in either settings or the Outlook account dialog, and I require these settings for several accounts.</p><p><br></p><p>Alan</p>

      I literally didn’t say that. It’s obvious why it’s still there.

      What I said was, I don’t understand why it’s persistence in Windows today bothers anyone.
