Enabling FTP Server on Windows 10

Almost every article “out there” on setting up an FTP Server on Windows 10 starts with using the “Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User control panel” – which doesn’t seem to work/exist on my computer – or to some “Administrative Tools” control panel applet – which also doesn’t exist here.

A fine-tuned Windows XP PC can run quite fast even it’s […]

Comparing Operating Systems

OS X vs. Windows XP. Now there’s a debate that normally spirals quickly out of control. “You get more viruses.” “You don’t have any games.” “You’re harder to use.” “You cost more.” “Your feet smell.” “Your mother wears combat boots.” Fortunately, this site doesn’t go that way, and is surprisingly fair and balanced.
