It’s been an eventful month in regards to Lipcrack’s current EP production but not many of them that significant in terms of updating readers therefore things will be brief.
The most significant task which occurred in the month was some time spent going though a range of processes to determine why Windows 10 was running slowly on the Black Dell – the computer used to produce the last EP and subsequently to the same extent on the new computer (a slowness in processes). I could not believe that two computers with improved systems could be running slower than an XP machine.
It took process after process, check after check working through it and finally I have two computers running as you would expect them too (although the boot on the Black Dell is still slow, once started it runs as normal, previously it was locking up and nothing could be done on it). The new computer kept requiring the memory to be freed and was a task that you would not expect to have to carry out on a new machine.
I’m going to make a comment here because as per some online reading, its painfully obvious that new computers are not being made with the end user in mind but more aligned with how to make more income from them when things don’t operate correctly. I’m sure plenty of people already know this and it extends to the guarantees and how they can be invalidated by the computer owner putting their own software on the system. Basically it reads, you will use these products and our updates to the platforms will limit a great many plans in the process. I’m not saying that’s happened to Lipcrack, I am saying there’s a high likely outcome that many an internet based plan will be limited by all range of matters. I should mention it took a full week to determine the range of computer matters that presented themselves on the Black Dell and obviously a shorter time to make necessary adjustments on the new computer. It seemed to be a similar problem.
I’m going to mention something that I became more aware of in the process of making those determinations and it relates to Hard drives and SSD drives. You can purchase one or the other when buying a computer and can add one to the other to improve the performance of the computer.
If you are a new buyer make sure to find out the difference between the two because it’s an important buying point. From that matter I was able to determine that the Black Dell had a hard drive and the new Silver Acer, an SSD drive. The plan is to update the Black Dell to include an SSD drive and that should prove a point to me in regards to its operations. When that occurs I’ll let people know. Basically SSD drives seem to have a faster working ability than the normal hard drive.
The good news in regards to the new track is that production is going reasonably well and I believe it will be completed within the next two odd weeks. I’m not putting a definite time on that other than to say, the way its progressed so far that should be a close estimate to finish time.
And that’s it, thanks for dropping in and catching up on the news obviously we are aware people are waiting for full tracks, possibly not as much as I’m looking forward to completing them.
See you all next month, stay safe and stay informed, until then,
