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.

Wow. This came as a shock. 65. I think that struck a chord. Same age as me but eight-months older.

Never met him and really never knew too much about him. Knew he was the real brains behind Microsoft and that he was a genuine philanthropist. Did NOT realize he never married or had any kids.

He always came across as a decent bloke. Nicer than Bill, I think.

Shame. All that wealth and it couldn’t save him from cancer. Eerily similar to Steve Jobs. What is it with this? Have you given it any thought?

It is the END of an era. PCs, Windows and Microsoft are no longer new or ‘recent’. They have all reached old age..

Paul Gardner Allen (1953 – 2018), RIP

Did The Alton Central School (ACS) Board, That Voted Down ‘Common Core’, Really Give Permission For This Week’s “Code Day”?

Will the miracles never cease in Alton?

The highly astute ACS School Board that voted downCommon Core‘, whatever that vote meant, has obviously given the go ahead for ACS to participate in the Obama-sanctioned, Bill Gates endorsed, Microsoft sponsored ‘Code Day’!


What about Local Control?

The kids will be using applications in the cloud. Heaven forbid? Has anybody checked the standards for these APPS? Are they safe for Alton kids?

Are we sure that these potentially nefarious APPS are NOT biometrically, via Webcams, sucking up all sorts of information about the kids?

Are we sure we have the right IT infrastructure at ACS to participate in such a global initiative?

Has anybody checked the STANDARDS for JavaScript? I am sure it was not developed in Alton.

This is scary. I am sure the promise of free food had all to do with this.

I am confused. Common Core is NOT ‘OK’ for ACS but ‘Code Day’ is. OK.
