  • It’s time to be thinking about saving a copy of Win10 v2004

    It’s time to think about socking away a copy of the v2004 ISO for a rainy day. Once version 20H2 is released, the ISO for Win10 v2004 will no longer be available on the Microsoft Download Center.

    Win10 Insider Preview Build 19042.508 (20H2) has been released to the Insiders Beta Channel on September 8, 2020. It has also been released to commercial customers in the Beta Channel and Release Preview Channel for pre-release validation.

    This means it won’t be long before it is released for Consumers in general, perhaps in the next couple of months. Once that happens, the install media available in the the Microsoft Download Center will be Win10 20H2. In the event you want to install v2004 instead in the future, you should download the ISO soon and store it in a safe place.

  • Patch Lady – what is Excel spill?

    Posted on September 11th, 2020 at 00:07 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So today on two different spreadsheets at the office I experienced “Spill”

    It’s hard to describe Spill.

    I’m sure to someone, somewhere this works.  But in my case I was doing an @sum function and all of a sudden I got a series of entries.  In the case of a coworker she was trying to “+” something and got this #SPILL error.

    Dearest, sweetest Microsoft…. just give me a nice quiet boring Excel and stop introducing things we don’t need and in my case, in an unexpected location that I didn’t ask for and feels more like an introduced bug.  Mind you I’m on the enterprise channel so it appears that Spill is now in wide distribution in Excel.

    Bottom line if you get this Spill error, it’s not just you, and you may have to clear out some cells to get your Spreadsheet back to normal.
