Windows 10 has been working so slow for me … It has just been a pain in the ass. So I decided to just format and start all over again. No I did not have it save my files and re-install .. I just trashed it all.
So now I am back … Windows is so much faster. So far I have Firefox installed and all my bookmarks and start pages setup. I installed LastPass and I got the NVidia GTX 750 driver installed. I got the Audiobox driver installed.
But a lot of software is not installed; NCH, Logitech utility for G502 and G710+, Debute Video Capture Software, Movavi Video Suite 16 and lots more software not installed.
But there is a lot of trash off my hard drive. One thing that took a problem for me was when I was doing Amazon reviews. I would install something and a driver for it and review the item and a bunch of that trash was on my hard drive and in Windows someplace.
Firebox is working so fast right now.
I hope I can keep Windows from slowing down.. but I do not think you can… It is the way Windows works.

I am 75 years of age and I been blogging about 37 years. That is a long time. I have made a lot of changes over the years. Time for a change again.

Visits to my written blog have gone down in the last few years. Oh sure I had a few times when a blog post got 2000 views in one day. That was rare but did happen. But visits to Howard’s Notebook got down to 500 visitors a day and has been heading down. Now that does not count RSS reads and it does not count the blog posts that went to other sites. But people are going to Facebook and I guess some other places.
So I am going to change with the times.
Now my YouTube site is doing very good. I have been on YouTube since they began, in 2005, and I have over 600 videos on YouTube.
I am making changes, new URL, and trying to get control of things. I feel like things are out of control. Part of it is Facebook and the other sites… I never feel like I have the control that I have had … So I am looking at everything and going to try and tie them all into a smaller package.
Starting today I will be doing podcasts. I will be using SoundCloud and so you can expect podcasts from me soon.
For the next few days and maybe even a week there could be some problems. I have a lot of links and RSS feeds to change. Give me some time.

I am working on this site with the idea of making it my new blog site. Yes I am doing away with the old Howard’s Notebook and ShowMeBlog sites. Long story …
I am also thinking about just having my YouTube site, my FaceBook Page and doing Pod Casting on SoundCloud.
So this site here is being worked on … hang in there..
