IF Bill Gates Really Wants To Tackle ‘Global Warming’ He Has To Start By Making Windows 10 More Efficient & Much Less Power Hungry.

by Anura Guruge

I saw Bill Gates on a talk show yesterday (i.e., Sunday) plugging his ‘Climate Change‘ book.

It then struck me. I am sure he wasn’t been totally hypocritical, BUT he is, personally, responsible for SO, SO, SO much wasted energy. Windows is a power hog. Windows can be made so much, so much more efficient. Forget the various ‘power saving’ modes. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

Windows is grossly inefficient. Make it 50% more efficient ….

We have BILLIONS of PCs running Windows. They are all consuming TRILLIONS & TRILLIONS of electrical wattage DAILY.

Many never think about this. So, here is your chance.

I Do NOT Let A 28-Day February, With Some Bitterly Cold Days, Get In The Way Of My 500,000-Steps/Month Goal.

by Anura Guruge

I only started this 500,000-steps/month goal last May (i.e., May 2020). Kind of walked that without setting out to do so, But, when I realized that I had walked 500,000 steps, I LIKED it. Decided to make it a goal. The following month, June 2020, was 30-days. Ooops! One day makes a difference.

I then decided that I will not let 30-day months get in the way. One days was not that difficult to surmount.

So, this was my 1st February.

I have, ever since moving to New Hampshire 36-years ago, HATED, LOATHED, February. Coldest & cruelest month of the year. IF not for February New Hampshire winters would not be so harsh & bitter.

Well, I set out to see what I could do. I did the sums. I had to walk, on average, 1,000 more steps a day than on other months. So, that is what I did. I like to bank up steps on good days. So, in February I did quite a few 20K days. That helped.

So, my streak is still going. 8-months & counting. SMILE.
