ThinkPad Tablet 10 DockI bought a Lenovo ThinkPad 10* with Windows 8.1 Pro some months ago, and I have been quite satisfied with it, although it is has been a bit slower than I expected, and the tablet often had problems in the docking station (ThinkPad Tablet 10 Dock).

It turned slow and unresponsive and had to be disconnected from the dock to recover. Mostly it worked just fine for most of my purposes: Word, Power Point, Photoshop, Audition, Audacity, InDesign, Atari’s Magic: Battlegrounds.

However, it struck me that I could try a fresh install with an original MS Windows 8.1 Pro medium. I did, and I only installed the drivers from Lenovo that had to be installed, such as Sound, Intel Chipset, Bluetooth. I also disabled the encryption chip. (Who the hell trust those chips, anyway?)

So far, the effect has been overwhelming. The tablet is much more responsive and quicker at loading than it was with the preinstalled Windows 8.1 Pro and the Lenovo drivers and programs. And so far — alas — there has been no strange behavior in the docking station. Will it last? If it does, then Lenovo needs to rethink its approach to preinstalled software.

(Dagsnytt 18, 24. februar 2015) Hvem er han fra Politiforbundet som sier at politiet trenger våpen i “såkalt forutsigbare” oppdrag? Eksempelet hans: Når de skal snakke med noen som har psykiske lidelser. Ok, så blir de sinnsyke sprø, da skal de skyte dem? Let’s pop some freaks, cowboys!

Bernaard advarer på det sterkeste mot de retroaktive kreftene i det norske politi!

Bernaard trer frem fra mørket, gråere og eldre, og med en plakat stiftet til et riveskaft: Ja til politiske prester! Det er jo helt avsindig å kritisere prester for ta politiske standpunkter. Vi trenger at de kommer ut av skapet og sier det rett ut. Vi vil ikke ha noen halvsjuskete teologer tuslende rundt i smauene med gnagende politiske tanker. Nei da, skjerp deg, Siomnes, på Dagsnytt 18 i kveld. La de mumle så mye de vil i media.

Finally, all policemen in Norway will carry firearms. Why? Because of the secret services, of course, whose super-secret sources submit images of great peril.

But these images are nothing compared to those of armed police in the streets. They will not CARRY those arms, anyway, they will W E A R them. Our cats in blue will certainly look hot and horny!
