There are many English proverbs.  Here is one. 

The pen is mightier than the sword.

Tell me what you think it means.

You can give a general interpretation or something more personal.

Studying for an Exam

It’s that time again!

1.     Review your notes.  Start with the main points before you return to review the material in detail.

2     Set up a schedule so you know what you will be reviewing each night        and know that you can cover everything in that time.

3.     Listen closely to the teacher’s tips on what may be in the examination.

4.     Never assume that something won’t be on the examination.

5.     Be sure you know what type of examination it will be.  (E.g., essay questions, true-and-false, matching, short answer, etc.)

6.     When you have the information, fill in your Test Preparation Plan sheets.

Windows 8.1 Major Data Usage problem

Well, the change from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 is coming along.  It took some time!

The scanner still doesn’t work properly, but other programs seem to be fairly good.

There was a BIG problem, however, with data usage online.  Once the new computer was set up, we were using on average three times the amount of data even when we were almost never online.   This was easily going to top our data limit and start costing more money – never a nice plan.

Problem solved!  

I finally found that turning off the Customer Experience Improvement Program helped enormously.

Here’s how:

On the right side “charms” click on the search at the top.

Type in “change customer experience”

Click on that and then click in the box that says “No. I do not want to participate..…”

It must have been sending packets constantly. 

This discovery was not made by multiple contacts with the computer company, Windows, or our provider!  Seems strange that nobody in the computer industry could tell me what to do yet again!
