Don’t Update Windows 10 Right Now

WARNING! HOLD OFF ON UPDATING WINDOWS 10 RIGHT NOW (APR/MAY 2018) !!

I’m advising people to postpone updating Windows 10 to the April 1803 update. It is crashing a LOT of machines …and doing it in such a way that they are not recoverable apart from reinstalling Windows. Make sure all your documents are backed up, and if you have backup software make sure you have an image of your hard drive. If you want to know what build you have click on Settings gear icon by the bottom of the start menu, and type UPDATE in the search box at the top, and pull up the Windows Update settings page. Then look for the link that says “build info” , …should look like this:

Windows 10 Windows Update

After that, you should have this page:

Windows 10 Build Info

If it still says 1709 you are good. If it says 1803 and your machine didn’t crash, EVEN BETTER!! 🙂 But if it says 1709, you may want to pause your updates for a while. Or at least make sure you have really good backups. …and if the worst already happened, give us a call. We can rebuilt it for you! 🙂 (and my sincerest sympathies to you) 

EVERYTHING I.T.

Whole NEW Version: WordPress 5.0 FINALLY Here!

EDIT: I just REALIZED that it didn’t update to 5.0. It WAS supposed to be a 5.0 update today. Maybe they had a bug with it and downgraded…it’s actually version 4.9.6 that got released, and I didn’t find out until I just noticed as I was doing my sites, that it was a different version than was supposed to be released today. So, I’m sorry for that, I guess they are still working it. Uggh, so sorry folks. So when they do finally release 5.0, you will really want to get it.

WordPress 5.0 is FINALLY here! Think about it…only up to the core version 5…this is a MAJOR update! If you didn’t upgrade earlier updates, you need to at least get this one, and get to the next whole version. Incorporates a whole new editor, and top, new, security features! If you didn’t know, Gutenberg “used” to be just a plugin editor. But it is now part of WordPress. It’s supposed to make editing your easier, for those of you who don’t know CSS and HTML, it supposedly does more for you with just the visual editor / drag and drop if you will. There are plenty of places to read about it, just Google “Gutenberg WordPress Editor”. One of the great new features is “block editing” …which before, you had to get a heavy theme with something incorporated if you wanted a feature like this.[edsanimate_start entry_animation_type= “spinner” entry_delay= “2.5” entry_duration= “1.5” entry_timing= “linear” exit_animation_type= “” exit_delay= “” exit_duration= “” exit_timing= “” animation_repeat= “1” keep= “yes” animate_on= “scroll” scroll_offset= “25” custom_css_class= “”][edsanimate_start entry_animation_type= “rotateIn” entry_delay= “0” entry_duration= “1.5” entry_timing= “linear” exit_animation_type= “” exit_delay= “” exit_duration= “” exit_timing= “” animation_repeat= “1” keep= “yes” animate_on= “hover” scroll_offset= “” custom_css_class= “”][edsanimate_end][edsanimate_end]

In addtion to the editor, it has better security (every WordPress update increased security some, so they are always important to update) but it also has a better background image cropping/editor, and better Mobile Optimization as well. You are definitly going to want to look into this and update right away. If you want a safe update, you can call us, and we will make sure you get all the files AND the database backed up both prior to, and after the update if you want. We like to do things safely at Everything I.T.

Special on SSL Certificate Installations!

SSL Installation: Special price -limited time only!

$65 for installation with cost of certificate INCLUDED. (usually separate cost)

If you don’t have an SSL certificate on your website, your site likely looks like this first image (on a Mac):  The next 5 are examples of other various displays of sites without SSL, on various browsers

No SSL, Needs SSL, or HAS SSL      

The main point is this, without an SSL certificate, you won’t have the GREEN PADLOCK next to your sites URL (web address) and you are losing traffic, and BUSINESS. Not to mention that Google now “bottom ranks” insecure (non-ssl) websites. That’s right, you go to the VERY BOTTOM of the page ranking results, displaying probably, somewhere around page 10 in the search results if someone searches for your business with Google. Sometimes even warnings are displayed recommending people NOT navigate to your website. Those can look something like this:

Or, maybe you find yourself in this situation: You may actually HAVE an SSL certificate on your website, but still don’t have the GREEN PADLOCK on your address bar, indicating it is secure. If you have THIS particular issue, I can fix that also. It has to do with having mixed content, and I can fix it, you should call me. (it will be a different price, so don’t use this button though) If you DO have an SSL certificate, and the HTTPS:// address works, but you still don’t have a green padlock, your site will look something like this:

Mixed Content

NOTE: If you already have a certificate, or if you choose to purchase your own from a different provider, the cost of installation is still $65, which is a discount from the $75, which is a discount from the original price of $100.

City of Oxnard Returns Money to Homeowners / Ciudad de Oxnard reembolsando dinero a propietarios de viviendas

No, it’s not I.T. related. But I do post local news when I think it’s really something you should know. And a government agency RETURNING money? Now THAT is RARE! But it’s true.

Have you ever heard of the social network site called “NextDoor” …Next Door? Anyone can join, but you only interact with people in your own PHYSICAL neighborhoods/areas. It’s pretty cool really. I didn’t think I would find a use for it, but it does come in handy. And many local agencies also post information there now. Much like this post that showed up today:

5.3 Earthquake Today Off the Coast…

You wanted to know where the earthquake was centered at, right? I did. Well, it was centered on the Island of Santa Cruz. (click header for full post to see map) My friend has a boat and often cruises out off the coast, and he took a video of the back side of the island, which has major damage, although no “people” were affected, the back side of the island broke off and fell in to to the ocean. If I can get the video link again, I will add it.

Santa Cruz 5.3 Earthquake

If you are on the west side of the VC grade, you likely felt it pretty good. The whole county felt it though, but if you were in Channel Islands, Hueneme, or Point Mugu, you probably felt it the best.

Well, now that you are here, why not look around a little? Most people need some kind of I.T. service, but they don’t think of it until something refreshes their memory. But now that you are here, do you have a computer issue that is bugging you to death, an image you want edited, a website you want created, updated, or even just maintained? How about a laptop you need repaired? Want a custom gaming computer built? Remote support available. Ethical, honest, and reliable! Give me a call. (or chat, or text, or leave a voice mail…so many ways to reach me!)

Glad the earthquake was only 5.3 and not 8.3, right? Because we would have been in serious trouble then. 🙂

Bless you all.
