Microsoft officially announced Windows 11 today. It's hard to believe that Windows has been around for 35 years now.

Didn't Microsoft once say that Windows 10 would be the last numbered version of Windows?

Well anyway, here is the Windows 11 page:

Indusoft Web Studio is now AVEVA Edge. Same product, just a different name.

You now have to buy it through an AVEVA distributer and use AVEVA customer support. AVEVA Edge fits in with their larger suite of software offerings.

The price is also a little higher, but still way below all of their main competitors.

We'll see how this goes.

What an awesome name for a desktop folder that you can "conjure" with a secret code!

Also known as the Windows Master Control Panel, this handy folder consolidates and groups most of the settings in Windows 10. God Mode first made its appearance as a feature in Windows 7. It is probably not suited for the average person, but power users, IT folks and most engineers will find it useful.

Weathering the Storm

DHA is open for business and working hard every day. All of my current customers are classified as essential businesses, so project work continues on.

Although I've been doing business for about 3 months now, today is the launch day for this site. Very exciting!
