This weekend I upgraded my Acer Nitro 5 laptop from Windows 10 Home to Windows 11 Home.
It mostly went well.
Microsoft Security was missing!
A strange consequence of the upgrade in fact was that most of my Modern Windows Apps were missing and needed to be reinstalled from the Microsoft Store: 3D Viewer, Clock, Maps, Microsoft OneNote for Windows 10, Microsoft To Do, Paint 3D and Windows Security.
This time last week, I wasn’t expecting a week of food poisoning and international war.
After the last couple of years of avoiding Covid, I was hoping that 2022 might finally be a much more positive year; a year of rebuilding. But we now have a world leader intent on starting World War III.
But we’ll get to that… this week, it appears that I tried to start a fight with my immune system.
For years I had on my project backlog an idea to create a website resource for Psion users that collated all the software that I had found and used for a wide range of Psion palmtop computers:
Series 3 / 3a / 3mx (SIBO)
Series 5 / 5mx (EPOC)
Series 7 (EPOC)
But my life took various unexpected twists and turns and other things took priority. Then in July 2017 I sold my Psion hardware.
While I have not been able to fulfil my original vision, as a minimal viable product, I have uploaded my entire collection of Psion software, images, documentation, code, etc. to Dropbox. If you are interested in Psion computers, have a poke around and help yourself.
