  • AskWoody Plus Newsletter 16.1.0 – Now open under old management

    Posted on January 14th, 2019 at 08:19 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    We’ve just sent out the first AskWoody Plus Newsletter to Plus Members.

    For a limited time (which is to say, until we get the hooks built into this web site), everybody can take a look, even if you haven’t signed up for Plus Membership. Mosey on over here to see:

    Tracey Capen‘s welcome, and a description of how we’re rebuilding Windows Secrets Newsletter from the ground up.

    Woody’s Windows Watch which asks whether you’d be willing to pay for a monthly subscription to Windows. It’s a complex question. What do you think?

    Fred Langa’s LangaList with down-to-earth answers to questions about Windows activation keys, a dying hard drive, and Microsoft Office alternatives. Have questions? Answers? Check out the discussion here.

    Susan Bradley’s Patch Watch proudly nominates Windows 10 version 1803 as the buggiest version of Windows ever — quite a distinction. There’s also a full rundown of all the latest patches, what’s broken, and what’s still limping along. Join the discussion here.

    For those of you who used to read Windows Secrets Newsletter, that should sound like a familiar roll call. The world has changed since the old team last appeared, and the new AskWoody Plus Newsletter takes it all in stride, dishing out help and ministrations without kowtowing to the folks in Redmond.

    I’m amazed at how far this team has come in less than six weeks. It’s all rough around the edges, and there are numerous glitches driving me nuts, but the foundation is solid and our intentions are noble.

    If you like it, sign up for an AskWoody Plus Membership. Remember that we work on the donation model — you pay as much as you think it’s worth. (And you can always donate again!)
