Windows 10 Anniversary Update Mail Update:
This one has really gotten under my skin. After I ran the Anniversary Update I had several app update to run, one being the Mail. I installed it, fully trusting Microsoft. Well it’s broke.
THE ISSUE: After opening it , it hangs and does not load a message, after a few minutes it crashes. It will do this 4 or 5 times. When I try to create a new message I can’t get the curser to go into the message field. Typically it has to crash several times before it works properly.
DON’T: If you encounter this issue do not uninstall the Mail app, even if Microsoft advises it, why? The mail app is tied directly in with the Calendar app and thee People App. Currently the People App after the Anniversary Update has sync issues. If it is working properly and you alter it in any way the sync feature may stop. The only fix for this is a clean install (see previous post here). Microsoft’s catch all fix is to remove and reinstall but I do not believe Microsoft’s staff is fully aware of the cross integration of their own apps. Removing one app will cause issues across the entire Windows 10 install. So if you remove the mail app you may create more problems and Microsoft will not care. My suggestion is to wait it out. Microsoft is aware of the Mail app issues and hopefully will issue a fix.
As many users of Windows 10 are learning, Microsoft is making changes again. The Anniversary Update has several hidden changes of which Microsoft provides no explanation. In this article I intend to cover a few of those changes…
Prior to the creation of Jesus time could not have existed. The Bible refers to Jehovah as needing nothing or no one. His first act of creation, that of Jesus, also sat into motion time. Mankind refers to time as a moving river, and this is the closest analogy we can use to comprehend such a complex issue. However when thinking of time as a river we must have a reference point from which time moves or is flowing against. In the sciences of the learned there is no such reference which has created a paradox without end. However when time is view as flowing away from something it then becomes an easier concept to grasp. In the chart above the creation of Jesus was also the point of which time begins to move away from. Therefore the “river” of time moves out of the First Born of all Creation. All other elements are “in” the river of time, as a part of time itself.
It is reasonable to conclude that at this point or close to this point Jehovah and Jesus spent “time” together to get to “know” each other. Of course one needs to keep in mind “time” was only required for Jesus as well as the “knowing”. It may very well have been during this time that Jehovah revealed His Purpose to Jesus and thus begin the input from Jesus. At some point in “time” (it is important to note time is relevant only to Jesus at this point) the creation of the entire Angelic Host started. How this came about and the order is as yet unknown to us. Undoubtedly the entire Heavenly Host existed for some time to allow teaching and understand to take place. At some point in “time” (relevance of time would now involve not only Jesus but also the entire Heavenly Host, but from their own perspectives) Jehovah and Jesus turned their attention to the creation of the physical universe. As to why that “time” in time was chosen is not relevant, one must keep in mind Jehovah has a Purpose behind the entire act of creation, which began out of love, and within that Purpose all things are measured out in “time” as it started from Jesus. From the first act of creation of a subatomic particle to the present man has learned that about 13.5 billion years has elapsed. One needs to keep in mind however this a best guess based on current understanding. At some point in the physical creation Jehovah and Jesus turned their attention to the Earth (again why that “time” chosen has no relevance to man’s concept of time, it was in “time” with the Purpose of Jehovah). After several million years of preparing the Earth attention was now given to the creation of man. The creation of man and the entire act of creation from Jesus to man was done as an act of love from Jehovah as He wanted to give His give of life to others. After the creation of Adam some time (relevant now not only to Jesus and the Heavenly Host, but also to Adam) was to pass before the creation of Eve. It was at some point after the creation of Eve that a rebellion against Jehovah’s Purpose began. This started in Heaven as a lone angel questioned Jehovah’s method of government. Soon the angel later known as Satan got Adam and Eve to side with him. This event did not alter Jehovah’s Purpose, just the time line of its fulfillment had to be adjusted.
So then what is time?
Time is the measure of all events in creation as they flow from the Firstborn of all Creation, Jesus.
Questions to answer
Can time be altered?
Is the movement of time a constant?
Is time-space a single entity?
Before I write this I would like to make a statement. Altering this recipe WILL alter the taste. If you use this recipe and choose to add to it or take away from it, please do not complain that it was due to this recipe. If you change it that change is your fault.
Now, when I was a young boy, about 6-8, I would watch my Grandma Watts cook. She was born in 1900 so in 1974-1975 she would have been 74 and 75. She lived about 4 months shy of being 100. Most of the time she cooked from memory and I watched as she expertly mixed everything together. At times I asked questions. I did not realize it at the time, but I was memorizing what she was doing.
Her apple pie was the best and I have never found a recipe for it. There is one caveat for this recipe, there are no measurements. This was one she mixed by sight, taste and color. I will do my best to guide you, but this is a recipe that requires skill.
Several Red Delicious apples (use any other, but make sure a sweet variety)
2 Store bought round pie crust (may make from scratch as option)
You may have to make more dry mix as you make your pies. The dry mix will not always be the exact same, but if you follow the above close enough it will be fine.
People claim making sweet tea is easy. But then they drink mine and notice a difference. Now I want to point out, I have been making tea in this manner for decades and shared it with all that have asked. In that time some have forgotten and have claimed “been makin’ it that way for years”. I don’t mind, but please remember when you say it to me and I remember when you asked I know you ain’t been makin’ it that way for years.
There are 2 critical parts to making tea using the manner I do. I would like to point out that I use physics as it applies to cooking when I make stuff. Some of the reasons behind what is involved in my apple pie is due to physics. Likewise two very important steps in my tea making have to do with applied physics. So if you skip, you alter taste.

A + means “and then” so press & hold Ctrl key then the other key not at exact same time.
CUT= “Ctrl + X” keys
COPY= “Ctrl + C” keys
PASTE= “Ctrl + V” keys
SAVE= “Ctrl + S” keys
OPEN= “Ctrl + O” keys
DELETE= “Ctrl + D” keys
On side of tablet is the “Windows” key. On other side of tablet “Vol Up” key. Press & Hold both keys at same time. The screen will flicker. Do this quickly. Takes practice.
This is toughest & easiest. There are 2 ways.
1) Place curser at the start of what you want to highlight. Then hold the “Shift” key down and start tapping the big > key located on bottom right of keyboard. Ensure you hold the “Shift” key down until what you want to highlight is completed. This requires a lot of practice.
2) You can also use your finger. Place your finger at the start of what you want to highlight, do not tap but place and then swiftly, not quickly, drag to end of what you want to highlight. Again requires practice.
With web pages using a full Windows Browser saving & selecting is easy.

What is a PDF and how to handle one?
How was PDF born?
In the beginning…of the Internet, there were hundreds of different types of software to create documents. When Windows 3.1 rolled out in the early 1990’s it was already facing Apple (Mac at the time). If a Windows user created a document file and sent it to a Mac user the Mac user could not open it and the reverse applied. But to make the matter worse, each user, business etc. may have used a document creation program that no one else owned. The infant Cyber World was in chaos. But alas, the birth of a bright new star, ADOBE, they created the PDF, “PUBLIC DOCUMENT FORMAT”. At last a file format that anyone, on any computer system using any software could open, but HOW!? The following questions and answers will help. For future reference anytime you see a question and answer format on the Internet it is called a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).
1) What software or program can I use to OPEN a PDF?
There are a lot of PDF READERS and you should never have to pay for one. We will focus on two.
1) Adobe PDF READER; is free and provided by Adobe. You can find it by using Google Search. But be very careful. In Google, Bing, Yahoo etc. evil companies lurk in the search results. A bad company like “Evil Trump” can pay to have his listing at the very top. So when doing a search please look carefully at the URL or address that is the link. Adobe is one of the hardest hit companies with viruses, malware and spyware. Their code is always being cracked. So Adobe is NOT my first choice.
2) Foxit PDF READER; this is the PDF READER to use. It is lightweight and has a clean interface. However again be careful when searching for it with Google Search. You want to download from www.mozilla.ORG. It is free.
2) What is the difference between PDF READERS and PDF CREATORS?
PDF READERS as noted in item #1 above are free and used to read and open PDF files. A PDF CREATOR is a VERY costly program used to create PDF’s from scratch. It is likely you will never need a PDF CREATOR.
3) I was told to upload a file in PDF format; don’t I need a PDF CREATOR to do that?
NO! PDF Creators as noted in #2 above are used to create PDF’s from scratch. You were asked to send a file in PDF format. The goal of the PDF is to allow anyone to convert one and anyone to open one. There are so many PDF conversion programs out there it is impossible to get two computer geeks to agree which is the best. We will cover a few.
1) If you have Microsoft WORD or OPENOFFICE you already have a free and excellent PDF convertor on your computer. If the file you have been asked to send has a .doc or .docx at the end open the document in Microsoft Word CLICK FILE TAB in upper left>CLICK SAVE AS> A new window opens. In that window you will see “SAVE AS TYPE” click the arrow on the right of that slot. In the drop down list choose PDF. Then SAVE. That file as now been converted to a PDF file and is in your DOCUMENTS folder.
2) If using Openoffice, follow the same steps above for Microsoft Word. There may be a few minor differences.
3) My favorite free PDF conversion software is DoPDFv7. I really love it because it has a few extra features. Goto www.snapfiles.com (it is a 100% safe site to get software). Click on the FREEWARE tab and then PRODUCTION and look through the list to find DoPDFv7. How it works. After you install it becomes a print option, the exact same as your physical printer. So you open the document or file in question. Then you CLICK FILE in the upper left>PRINT> Choose DoDPFv7 and hit PRINT. You will get a prompt window above saving options, please read and complete to personal settings. The new converted PDF is now in your DOCUMENTS FOLDER.
4) The last option is CutePDF. I do not like it because they have too many versions out and the good old free one is too hard to find and trust. But as I said other geeks drool over it.
So that’s it. A PDF is a universal file format that can be open and read on any computer. You only need a PDF READER such as ADOBE PDF READER or FOXIT READER. You do not need PDF CREATION software. You it is likely you already have PDF Conversion software built into WORD or OPENOFFICE.
If you are ever asked to pay for a PDF CONVERTOR you are being taken for a steal.
