Sign of the coming apocalypse? It’s National Selfie Day. Narcissists need their own day too.
For the record I have only ever taken one “selfie”. Back in 2004 I wrote and article for Linux World Magazine called Taking the Linux+ Exam. They wanted a head shot to go with the the article. I don’t take pictures of myself and I am usually the one behind the camera. The newest one I had was 10 years old, literally. I’m home alone so I set up my digital camera on a timer and ran across the room to sit for the pic. After several attempts I got it right. The mag is long since gone. Internet Wayback here, article is on page 14.
Looks like a bunch of bugfixes.
Nothing for the latest version of Win10.

New Intel RST Drivers
The latest on Intel’s site is version 18.104.22.1686. I regularly check my mobo downloads page and they have version 22.214.171.1247. The driver xml file indicates it is Windows 8 and up.
Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
High Court: Online shoppers can be forced to pay sales tax
Folks are whining about this. Here’s an idea. Reduce or eliminate the sales tax.
Related: Norquist Statement on South Dakota v. Wayfair
“Today the Supreme Court said ‘yes—you can be taxed by politicians you do not elect and who act knowing you are powerless to object.’
Google kills revenge porn bill
“It’s a disgrace how weak our lawmakers look for bowing down to these tech corporate overlords.”
Yet these same companies kiss the ChiComs butts.
It’s been a year since I’ve updated Tweaking Windows 10 and Windows 10 Privacy Settings.
In my humble opinion, not all that much has changed. At least, not for the way I use a PC. Screens look different, a few more options here and there…
For the Windows 10 Privacy Settings there were few significant changes. For the Tweak Guide, 9 of 21 web pages had changes, again nothing earth shattering. (FYI, pages 9, 10, 12-17, 19)
One thing I refused to put in the Tweak Guide at this point was anything related to Game Mode. I’ve yet to see any reliable benchmarks on this and in my own limited benchmarks I’ve seen no change at all.
There are currently 3 supported versions of Windows 10:
1703 (Creators Update), 1709 (Fall Creators Update), and 1803 (April 2018).
This last week has seen updates to all 3 (Windows 10 update history):
1703 – May 17, 2018—KB4103722 (OS Build 15063.1112)
1709 – May 21, 2018—KB4103714 (OS Build 16299.461)
1803 – May 23, 2018—KB4100403 (OS Build 17134.81)
All of these are “quality” releases, what the rest of the computing world calls “bugfixes”.
1803 supposedly fixed the problem with some SSDs.

Slowly working on updating the Win10 tweak guide. No ETA.
In the meantime, here are my current O&O ShutUp10 settings:

I’m going to show you how to use the powercfg command to find out info on your power plan.
I did this pretty quick. Let me know if I missed something.

In prep for the upcoming revision of the Win10 Tweak Guide I have some thoughts about Game Mode and the Ultimate Performance Power Plan.
Lemme give you my conclusion right out of the box. IMHO, for performance Game Mode and the Ultimate Performance Power Plan are pure snake oil.

I benchmarked my machine before and after the Win10 April Update.
I want to stress this is a single benchmark on a single computer. The benchmark I ran was PCMark10.
I would appreciate any benchmark results anyone can share.
