TIP – Add Safe Mode to the Boot Menu of Windows 10 (and 8)

Recently I had a PBSOD (pale blue screen of death) crash with one of my Windows 10 systems, and kept getting crashes within minutes every time after rebooting the system.

Somewhat annoyingly, starting with Windows 8 Microsoft removed the old boot menu options that we were used to with Windows 7 and previous versions. Run a search like this to see the complaints about this from the Windows user community.

It’s not a bad idea to modify the Windows boot settings in order to get back to the old boot-time settings:

As good an explanation for doing so, in easy steps, can be found in this article at How-To Geek and I recommend that you do it on your systems too, in advance of being caught out.

TIP - How to navigate quickly through Scientific American archives
Fri, Apr 21st 2017 3:40a   Tony Austin
For subscribers to Scientific American, see How to navigate quickly through Scientific American archives or read below. Subscribers to Scientific American are given access to every issue, in PDF format, right back to the magazine's launch in 1845. Wow! It can be quite a laborious, hit and miss process to navigate back through all those issues, particularly for the earlier years (prior to November 1921) where there are about fifty issues per year. Originally there was an issue per week, then in

Firefox browser is stuck since 2006 at file version 4.42.0.0 – Why so?

I have saved quite a range of Firefox installers, and there’s something that puzzles me about them Let’s start with Firefox release 1.0.3 which is indicated to be File Version 3.12.0.0 as follows: My understanding of “file version” is that the developer is supposed to register each file with a unique number that truly represents the release number, as happens with RoboForm 8.3.3 (its latest version at the time of writing): With many products, the external  “release” number and

This is an update to a post originally published way back on 11 January 2010. Unfortunately, the industry of creating stupid software still is thriving in 2017. You should learn something new each and every day of your life, so I keep reminding my young grandsons. It’s a maxim that I still follow myself, in a desperate bid to keep my brain alert and defer that day when my grey matter finally degenerates into a useless pile of wobbly jelly. As an example, this morning for the first time I came

Cricket can be a deadly game
Tue, Nov 22nd 2016 12:15p   Tony Austin
Two old blokes, Dave and Pete, had been friends all of their lives. When it was clear that Dave was dying, Pete visited him every day. One day Pete said, "Dave, we’ve both loved playing cricket ever since school. Please do me a favour: when you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's cricket there." Dave looked up at Pete from his deathbed and said, "Pete, you've been my best mate for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favour for you." Shortly after t

Zuver hosting is so boring!

Congratulations to the folk at Zuver Hosting for providing a service that is so fast and reliable that I’m getting oh so bored with receiving weekly performance reports like the one in the following screenshot: Since November 2014 I’ve experienced the same boringly good performance and reliability, week after week, and all for such a low monthly rate. Note that I’m not at all saying that there aren’t any equally good Australian web hosting companies, some of which I used previously, jus

Here’s a reminder of our place in the grand scheme of things. The above movie was generated using the iOS App "Cosmic Eye", written by Danail Obreschkow at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research at the University of Western Australia. Watch for the quarks making the briefest of appearances in the atomic nucleus. There are older versions of this “cosmic zoom” approach, such as this one created by the Film Board of Canada: Enough of the easy-peasy visual stuff. A new rese

I was browsing for Java programming books yesterday, and came across this one: URL: http://www.worldofbooks.com.au/catalog/product/view/id/4152420/ Notice the asking price?  $1,421.99 (Australian dollars) The same book (Introduction to Java Programming: Comprehensive Version by Y. Daniel Liang) at other sites such as Amazon was – depending on the edition and type (hardcover or paperback) and whether new or used – going for anything from around $20 to $240. I thought that I’d warn the
