I Hate Windows 10!
Shame on me … I know better but instead I fell for the FREE WINDOWS upgrade con.
What a rip off … I should have known when Microsoft offered it FOR FREE IT SUCKED!
All of my beautiful desktop work POOF gone in a nano second.
On installing the upgrade … the “you can reverse this install” was just like the Obama “if you like your insurance you can keep it” … A LIE!
When I realized the giant mistake with my monitors going dead in about 6 minutes of inactivity, all of my desktop artwork gone, absolutly NOTHING where it use to be and facing a giant learning curve to figure it out? It was time to go back.
WHAT THE FRACK! … THERE IS NO GO BACK?
Now that laptop is STUCK WITH AN OPERATING SYSTEM I HATE!
It is the newest most powerful laptop I own though not the most used … THANK GOD!
Thank heaven I only installed this sucky upgrade on that one of my 4 computers.
It would have been a total disaster had it been installed on this laptop that I use daily hooked to my 52″ TV.
Thank heaven I tried it out before I trundled off and installed this CRAP OPERATING SYSTEM on the other 3 … which would be my normal behavior.
The WOW THIS IS SO SIMPLE and I am on a roll here so why not do all of them at one time.
It does remind me that there is indeed someone SOMEWHERE looking out for me.
I avoided a disaster that would have taken me a week or so to correct.
As someone who has been designing websites for close to 20 years now it is increasingly apparent that blogs are cropping up filled with advertisements.
I HATE THOSE TOO!
Personally I come onto a website for information not to be overwhelmed with product that I have no intention of buying EVER.
Bloggers who jump on the bandwagon filling the internet with valuable information. At the same time “some fool” told them they can make BIG MONEY by adding a bazillion advertisements to the sidebars of their blogs. All of them moving, all of them opening at one time, all of them needing shockwave etc.
The result? The information you are searching for comes to a screeching crawl or crash of your browser.
I have noticed this mostly on food blog websites. But Glenn Beck’s The Blaze has the issue as does Breitbart and a few others. Do notice Amazon, Target, Walmart and the biggies have bothered to hire designers who know how to advertise without making a website a mucked up mess.
Well today I ran into THE FIX. Like most things in my life quite by accident. Why? since I was not searching for it … but apparently a little gift from the “gods of a less stressed life” decided to smile upon me for the day.
THIS WONDERFUL FIX is called “AdBlock Ultimate” and it is FREE.
It is a plug-in I installed in Firefox.
As a designer and artist I like the FIREFOX browser best.
I have always been a great fan of pretty websites and if that is what you are looking for then Firefox does it best.
I just went to 3 of these offending websites … Breitbart being one of them and voilà I actually scrolled through the whole days worth in under a minute. I only had to pick and choose what I WANTED TO READ without all of that unwanted junk.
My normal Breitbart visit means I quickly copy the article and paste it into a openoffice document before I get a stall and windows error telling me my Shockwave is busy or a script error on the page has occurred do I want to debug it?
WELL HELL NO!
That is a designer job not a visitor job.
I am so thrilled with this little plug-in I WILL RETURN to these guys and give them a donation for their effort …. YESSSSSS!
It is a good day! 😉
