At long, long last, I’ve upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, from Windows 7 Pro. It was a system rebuild, since I’ve had a new SSD hard drive installed! Which now means my PC boots faster than my mobile phone does.

But of course, since it rebuild. I’ve had to reinstall everything! Got all the main software back working again. Which includes… Audacity, Firefox, GIMP, gPodder, LibreOffice, WinSCP and many more.

Next job is getting the video editing software installed, so I can start doing new vlogs again! 😛

P.S. Do check out my YouTube channel over at

The desktop departure board turned up this morning! Go to say, that I am super pleased with it!

Was so easy to set-up, sure that even non tech people could do to! Just had a edit a file, to get speaking to my Wi-Fi and that was just about it!

Right, now I am got it showing my local railway station, which is of course Grantham. But you can choose any railway station in the UK. It can also show, live bus times (I checked, it even found my local stop) and of course it shows tube info also!

Who knows, maybe one day, it will also show Glasgow subway info…

What's in the box?

Got to say, I really do love my Anker wireless charger. Saves me from having to look on the floor at night for the USB cable to change my phone. But like someone at work said, it’s a bit like witchcraft. Got no idea, how it works…

Just know, that you need a Qi-Certified, 7.5W Compatible iPhone XR/XS Max/XS/X/8/8 Plus, 10W Compatible Samsung S9/S9+/S8/S8+/LG G7 for it to work…
