  • Switching to the new Newsletter page

    Posted on September 19th, 2019 at 13:15 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    As promised in this week’s AskWoody Plus Newsletter, we’re moving over to the new Newsletter subsystem.

    If you drop by, you’ll see a list of all of the Newsletters going back to 2003.

    Those who are Plus Members will be able to see the last two months’ set of Newsletters. Other folks will see links, but they won’t be active. Everybody can get to older Newsletters.

    Please kick the tires. We know the figures are missing from 2018 and earlier newsletters, and we’re working on restoring them. If you’d like to volunteer to help, let me know!

    As usual, if you have questions, problems, suggestions, you’re always welcome to write to me at

  • The sad saga of Surface problems continues

    Posted on September 19th, 2019 at 04:46 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    You’re going to hear a lot about the shiny new Surface devices coming in the next few weeks.

    Should you be tempted to shell out your shekels, be aware of the problems we’ve hit with Surface devices recently — and how Microsoft has (or has not) responded to the complaints.

    Extensive details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    I’ve said it before… I won’t buy — or recommend — a Surface device until Microsoft cleans up its support.

    Thx Barb Bowman!
