....You getting any problems Masiv?

No computer problems here. My TiVo starting loosing the channel signal every few minutes. I checked the channels in another room and the problem seemed to be the TiVo. I restarted the TiVo and the Channel Adapter at the same time and that fixed the problem.

Now we did have a scare a few weeks ago. My wife's laptop started blasting this siren sound and the Internet screen froze on a warning screen stating that we had to call this phone number to fix it. Well, I knew not to call that number. I thought maybe she got that hostage virus I heard about on the news. But we have Norton Antivirus and after a quick scan, no virus was detected. I called Symantec (the maker of Norton AV) and this tech guy knew what it was and helped us fix it. A web site she had gone to had code that froze IE and wanted us to buy their antivirus product. No way. That's crap. Anyway, I've got the procedure if it happens again.

I can't find it. I'm still looking. Web problems - She did a search on the announcement that Rachel and Branden from Big Brother were having a baby. One of those results was the bad one. It happened so fast, she's not sure which one.

Introducing The New Xbox Game Bar



Xbox Game Bar is the customizable gaming overlay built into Windows 10. Xbox Game Bar works with nearly all PC games, giving you instant access to widgets for screen capture and sharing, controlling your music, finding new teammates with Looking for Group (LFG), and chatting with Xbox friends across Xbox console, mobile, and PC—all without leaving your game. You can access these new features by pressing the Windows key and the “G” key at the same time – “Win+G” – to bring up the Xbox Game Bar when playing nearly all PC games or choose your own custom keyboard shortcut.

Upload pictures, create memes, modify audio, sync with Spotify, broadcast streams – control all the above and more without ever leaving your game using Game Bar on Windows PC.
