    A strange one! I received an email, the other day. When I went back, today, to refer to it, using the Mail app on my Surface, it was not there. But, when I searched for the author, it appeared. Went back to the in box and, again, it was not there! Grabbed my phone and brought up mail and...

    Very strange issue postin here

    Just recently, I have been having serious issues posting to this site. All on-screen keyboards are going insane. Sometimes, I have to hit a letter several time before it appears. Sometimes, the wrong letter appears. Sometimes, the letter appears then disappears. This occurs only on this...

    Strange Sound Issue

    I just came across a very strange issue. I started hearing an occasional popping noise, in the speakers. So, I rebooted and then I had no sound whatsoever! I, finally, shut down and restarted. The sound came back. I'm hoping that this was a one-off.
