The Owen Rants ...

Tue 7/11/17: And so there was! At last my wretched hp climbed up from the landfill via kindly Usux™ ministrations. ... I figure STARTUP REPAIR is a database of stupid Usux™ things of the years — like for instance when they tried to scam everybody into using Windows Media Player, weakening/breaking numerous subsystems along the way — and then the thing’ll undo whatever dastardly scheme they implemented, if it seems to be the problem. ... Of course when the machine is actually broken, this has no effect....

... But then I couldn’t get to the BIOS on a 2014 Windows 8 Asus the repeated ESC way, but the web said “press ESC, F2, Insert one after another repeatedly while booting” and that worked....

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx]
“DisableGwx”=dword:00000001

... and scurrilous whines

... And in our up-to-date times, Adobe has taken up the challenge of scammy malware copy-extortion pretend-graphix software....

The rant pages: Rant. Rant2. Rant3. Rant4 (beautiful organs). Rant5. Rant6. Rant7. Rant8. Rant9 (silly cameras). Rant10. Rant11. Rant12. Rant13. Rant14. Rant15. Rant16. Rant17. Rant18 (Computerdammerung). Rant19. Rant20. Rant21. Rant22. Rant23 (more silly cameras). Rant24 (even more!).
