Monthly Tech News & Roundtable

Demo of the current release of Ubuntu 18.04 (aka “the Bionic Beaver”).  This is considered by many to be the “Premier” Linux distribution with a solid base of 30-35 million users across the globe.   I will be running it off an external SSD via the usb v3 port.

Demo of free “classic” TV shows from the 50’s & 60’s which are hosted on Youtube.

Door Prize drawings and update on Nov & Dec club meetings

Hope to see everyone there!

 

Microsoft yanks the document-destroying Windows 10 October 2018 Update

UPDATE:  Wed Oct 10, 2018 . . . MS has now fixed the problem and it is safe to run the Oct-2018 update again!

Update:

MS has advised users to call their support center and they will advise how to download additional MS tools designed to fix this problem.   But in some cases, if the disk space has been over-written by the user, an additional tool using Linux  media is recommended (MS now has this in their repos).
