Gold Coast Storms

We’ve been very lucky and our damage was minimal compared to some

So many trees downed

House with no roofs

Never seen anything like this before and I hope I never do again

I’ve finally got power back and filled the bins with all the ruined food

No internet leaves you so in the dark that you think you’d never really miss it

But having no power for nearly 48 hours in this heat is not has easy as it sounds

So I’ll be back in business from the 28th Dec

 

Take care everyone out and about

More storms are forecast

Facebook Page

A while ago for some reason I lost access to my Facebook business page
I wasn’t happy about this as I lost a lot of great reviews and feedback I’d been given

But nothing I could do as I tried so many ways to prove who I was but to no avail

So now I have a new page which is here… New Facebook Page

So I’m hoping to start and get some good reviews once again

Old Facebook Page

I’ll be updating every now and then on new PC’s and Laptops for sale

Plus some helpful tips and advice

NGV Email Ending

We are writing to inform you that the complimentary NGV email service will unfortunately be discontinued from 31st January 2024. This means that after this date, you will no longer be able to send and receive emails using your NGV email address, or access your NGV email account through the web portal.
Please note your other services including internet and phone services, which will NOT be affected by this change.
To help you transition to a new email service, we have attached some guides to this email that will show you how to create an email account with another service such as Gmail or Outlook. These services are free, secure, reliable and widely used by millions of people around the world.
We recommend that you take action as soon as possible to avoid losing any important emails or contacts. You should also notify your friends, family, colleagues and other contacts of your new email address, and update any online accounts or subscriptions that use your NGV email address.
If you’re concerned about losing your emails, we can enable a mail forwarding option for you. This means that any emails sent to your NGV email account will be automatically forwarded to another email address of your choice. We can forward any ngvemail mail to your new email address up to 31st July 2024. To activate this option, please send an email to support@ngv.com.au from your NGV email account with the following information:

Australians lost more than $323 million to scammers in 2021

New figures from the ACCC reveal Australians lost more than $323 million to scammers, up 84 per cent since 2020.

Phishing scams, which take personal information from users, including credit card information, made up a quarter of all reports.

Tech Guide Editor Stephen Fenech says it is a “worrying state” where scams are becoming more prevalent.

“In terms of protecting yourself…it just comes down to just using your common sense; I think the first rule of thumb is that if it’s too good to be true, it is too good to be true,” Mr Fenech told Sky News Australia.

“If you are receiving a text message or an email that appears to be from a bank or other institution that you may know of or maybe even part of, check with that institution.

“It’s really important that you think twice before clicking.”

Just like it did before the upgrade

Not every PC will be able to run it

My advice if buying a new PC the yes you want the latest windows

Windows 11 released on 5th October

Windows 11 will start to become available on October 5, 2021. On this day, the free upgrade to Windows 11 will begin rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs and PCs that come pre-loaded with Windows 11 will start to become available for purchase. A new Windows experience, Windows 11 is designed to bring you closer to what you love.

As the PC continues to play a more central role in our lives than ever before — Windows 11 is ready to empower your productivity and inspire your creativity.

Here are 11 highlights of this release

  1. The new design and sounds are modern, fresh, clean and beautiful, bringing you a sense of calm and ease.
  2. With Start, we’ve put you and your content at the center. Start utilizes the power of the cloud and Microsoft 365 to show you your recent files no matter what device you were viewing them on.
  3. Snap Layouts, Snap Groups and Desktops provide an even more powerful way to multitask and optimize your screen real estate.
  4. Chat from Microsoft Teams integrated into the taskbar provides a faster way to connect to the people you care about.
  5. Widgets, a new personalized feed powered by AI, provides a faster way to access the information you care about, and with Microsoft Edge’s world class performance, speed and productivity features you can get more done on the web.
  6. Windows 11 delivers the best Windows ever for gaming and unlocks the full potential of your system’s hardware with technology like DirectX12 Ultimate, DirectStorage and Auto HDR. With Xbox Game Pass for PC or Ultimate you get access to over 100 high-quality PC games to play on Windows 11 for one low monthly price. (Xbox Game Pass sold separately.)
  7. Windows 11 comes with a new Microsoft Store rebuilt with an all-new design making it easier to search and discover your favorite apps, games, shows, and movies in one trusted location. We look forward to continuing our journey to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store through our collaboration with Amazon and Intel; this will start with a preview for Windows Insiders over the coming months.
  8. Windows 11 is the most inclusively designed version of Windows with new accessibility improvements that were built for and by people with disabilities.

Windows 11 unlocks new opportunities for developers and creators. We are opening the Store to allow more developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to bring their apps to the Store, improving native and web app development with new developer tools, and making it easier for you to refresh the look and feel across all our app designs and experiences.

Windows 11 is optimized for speed, efficiency and improved experiences with touch, digital pen and voice input.

Windows 11 is the operating system for hybrid work, delivering new experiences that work how you work, are secure by design, and easy and familiar for IT to deploy and manage. Businesses can also test Windows 11 in preview today in Azure Virtual Desktop, or at general availability by experiencing Windows 11 in the new Windows 365.

Rolling out the free upgrade to Windows 11 in a phased and measured approach

The free upgrade to Windows 11 starts on October 5 and will be phased and measured with a focus on quality. Following the tremendous learnings from Windows 10, we want to make sure we’re providing you with the best possible experience. That means new eligible devices will be offered the upgrade first. The upgrade will then roll out over time to in-market devices based on intelligence models that consider hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, age of device and other factors that impact the upgrade experience.

We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022. If you have a Windows 10 PC that’s eligible for the upgrade, Windows Update will let you know when it’s available. You can also check to see if Windows 11 is ready for your device by going to Settings > Windows Update and select Check for updates*.
