Defer Windows Updates

Microsoft has had a lot of bad press in the past few years with their updates breaking things on some computers. For 95% of users the updates haven't been a problem but for the other 5% it's been a pain. This has even been true with Apple when it releases its major updates. For example, when Mojave first came out it caused a lot of Macs, Macbooks and iMacs to not boot at all.

Saving the Planet 6 Cans at a Time

Computers get dirty. They are basically dust sucking machines with their fans drawing dust in all day long. The computer's CPU in particular gets filled with dust. The problem arises that the dust collects on computer components and then attracts water so that the computer can get corroded. In time this can completely destroy the computer. Tablets tend not to have this problem, but laptops and desktop computers do.


Whenever a computer comes into our workshop we not only give the software a clean up but a physical clean too. Removing the dust regularly can substantially increase the lifetime of a laptop or desktop. We use various tools for this but a significant part of the process involves blowing compressed air through the computer. Traditionally, this has come in the form of cans of compressed air. We would buy them in boxes of 6, and end up going through many cans of air in a month.

Microsoft Deletes Documents

Microsoft has stopped distributing it's latest feature update (version 1809) because it deleted documents on a number of Windows users computers and laptops. If you don't have Windows then this doesn't apply to you.

Microsoft started rolling out the update during the company’s Surface event earlier late last week, but some Windows 10 users immediately noticed their documents were being deleted. “We have paused the rollout of the update for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating,” says Microsoft on its support site for Windows Update. Once they sort out the issue they will release the update again.
