I was feeling a little guilty about leaving people out of the “Thank You” post so…
This is a list comes from the supporters of this site since I started keeping track of locations. Specifically, through buying the Win10 Tweak Guide.
So many people want to remain anonymous that I thought it would be cool to but everyone’s town, city, or village. I also included a map!
PLEASE let me know if I have left you out, or got anything wrong.
Also, please excuse the capitalization issues. This table was created by creating a large spreadsheet and the capitalization or lack of it is how they typed it in.

A while back I mentioned I wanted to ditch my XP era equipment for more modern stuff. All in all I want to create 3 (maybe 4) more computers. With that in mind…

Long ago I lamented about someone coming up with a superfast drive just for the operating system. That has been a reality since the late 2000s when SSDs became mainstream and affordable.
A couple of weeks ago, Samsung released the 870 EVO line of SSDs. The smallest and cheapest of these is 250GB version. Because I view the smaller drives as ideal for Operating System only drives, this is the drive I will be focusing on.
The 870 EVO line has been touted by Samsung and hardware review sites as the last shot at maximizing the performance of SATA drives.

So my new Samsung EVO 870s came today (250GB & 1TB). I’ve been benchmarking.
Windows misidentified both drives. In fact it says the 1TB is actually 250GB!

Original article: Windows 7 UAC – Quick notes on why I disable it. circa 2009
***31 December, 2020
As of today my original article is over eleven years old. Links to sources have disappeared. I updated the links today, mostly to the Internet Wayback Machine archive. I’ve also backed up these sources to PDF and have linked to those where appropriate.
Microsoft introduced User Account Control (UAC) with Windows Vista. Windows 7 has an “improved” version of UAC. The purpose of this short note is to explain why I do not like or use UAC on my own machines (because I get asked so much), it is not to start an argument or to try to convince others to disable UAC.
