Owner’s Objectives

It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you

    A big Windows 10 update is coming August 2nd. Microsoft announced the Windows 10 anniversary update will arrive on 2nd of August. The anniversary update is named as such, since it will arrive about a year after the original introduction of Windows 10. Windows 10 machines will receive the update for free. Microsoft says there are over 350 million active Windows 10 devices. So what's the big deal? What's new in this anniversary update anyway? First up, Cortana integration comes to the lock screen. You can ask Microsoft Digital Assistant questions without having to unlock your machine. Cortana also gains the ability to recall information like where you parked your car at an airport. A new version of Microsoft Edge, the Internet Explorer replacement, promises better battery life and support for extensions like [UNKNOWN] Pass. Windows Ink comes with the anniversary update. Ink will let you use a Stylus to sketch or write notes. Office, Maps and Microsoft Edge will support Ink. The x box and PCs will gain x box play anywhere with the anniversary update that will let you start certain games on an x box one, and continue them on a Windows 10 PC and vice versa. Game play syncs up too. Cortana commands will also hit the x box one. There security improvement including using windows hello with windows apps and edge. Windows hello use your face, eyelids or fingerprints as your password. If you haven't upgraded to windows 10, Microsoft's free update offer ends on July 29th.

     azdewars:
    If you haven't upgraded to windows 10, Microsoft's free update offer ends on July 29th

      I know this has been coming . I didn't like my first experience with Windows 10 . It seemed like I couldn't delete the clutter fast enough . And the more it came . Until my system had slowed at least by 50 % . It was a biotch down grading back to Windows 7 . But I know eventually I will have to give in . If for no other reason but to see if the new systems can clear up some frustrating issues and glitches here in WGT. . Other than that I still love the way my system runs . 
      So I had better do it while it is still free . Ugh . I feel like I am doomed . Maybe though I will like it this time . We will see .

    Hi John....I'm a stubborn ass and am doing everything in my power to stay with Windows 7 Ultimate as long as they let me. I installed Windows 10 on my old computr and had nothing but trouble so I actually got a computer with 7 as the operating system and now I'm happy as clam. Am I going to be forced to upgrade to 10 or will they leave me alone? Let me know....Jim

    I'm with you both on this matter. I too am using Windows 7 Ultimate. We will eventually be forced to upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 7 was scheduled to be non-supported August 2016 but it does NOT look to be a realistic date. They have not setup another date as of yet. Paul has the right idea on upgrade while its free, however, I just did so and its still a piece of $*@t. I'll re-check when free upgrade ends. It probably is before Windows 10 upgrade in August. That would fit MS way of doing business.

    Microsoft's ambitious plan to get Windows 10 running on a billion devices within the next few years depends to a large extent on the success of its free upgrade offer.
    When the company first announced the terms of that offer in May 2015, it literally included an asterisk and fine print. Those terms have changed slightly over the intervening months, but one element has remained constant: The offer is good for one year after the availability of Windows 10.
    Here's the actual wording of the offer, as it appears today:
    Get the best Windows experience. Ever.

    Ready for Windows 10? Qualified Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 devices can upgrade for free. Offer ends July 29, 2016.
    The text that appears in the fine print at the bottom of that page has changed slightly over the past year. Here's how it now reads (emphasis added):

    The fine print on the Windows 10 upgrade offer, as of June 2016.

    Here's the tl;dr version if you don't want to keep reading:
    1. The free upgrade offer ends on July 29 and will not be extended.
    2. Any upgrades completed before that date will be valid for as long as the device lasts.



    3. There is a possibility that Microsoft will introduce some new upgrade offers after July 29, but don't count on it.
    In fact, Microsoft's real goal with this upgrade offer isn't just to get its installed Windows 10 base to a billion. The long-term goal is to help close the books on Windows 7 in an orderly fashion before its extended support commitment ends on January 14, 2020.
    Some of those Windows 7 PCs will simply be retired, of course. But what about those that are only a few years old and have more than four years of usable life ahead of them? For Microsoft executives, the prospect that hundreds of millions of PCs will still be running Windows 7 on New Year's Day 2020 has to bring back unpleasant flashbacks of Windows XP's messy end.
    After nearly a year, Microsoft says a total of 300 million devices are running Windows 10. Many of those, perhaps one-third or more, represent new PCs. Another big chunk represents newer devices originally sold with Windows 8 or 8.1, Windows 10 has succeeded in cutting the share of devices running those versions nearly in half over the past year, and the share of PCs running Windows 8.1 should be in the low single digits by the end of 2017.
    Quit your bitching and upgrade already
    Waiting until you have a catastrophic failure or a major security event to upgrade your system is never a best practice.
    That's still a lot of Windows 7 PCs, and there's not much evidence that even the carrot of a free upgrade will be enough to move more than another few percent as the deadline approaches.
    Which explains why the offer won't be extended. In early May 2016, the company made it official. If you want to upgrade a PC from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 after July 29, you'll have to pay for the privilege.
    There's plenty of precedent for this, based on past behavior. For Windows 7 and 8, Microsoft offered significant introductory discounts and then ended them on schedule after a few months, with no extensions.
    Financially, this decision is unlikely to have much of an impact. Retail upgrades have historically represented a microscopic share of Microsoft's revenue (see the chart in this article), and most customers who might have been willing to pay for an upgrade will have taken advantage of the free offer by the time the Anniversary Update rolls around.
    Asking existing Windows 7 users to pay $99 or more after they've spent a year avoiding the free upgrade seems like a surefire way to guarantee that they never upgrade. That significantly increases the risk of an XP-style mess come 2020.
    On the other hand, the free upgrade offer never really applied to large businesses that run Windows Enterprise editions. For those customers who also have purchased Software Assurance for those volume licenses, the Windows 10 upgrade offer is, if not free, at least already paid for. The decision of whether and when to upgrade is driven by business needs, not by the cost of an upgrade license.
    In the new "Windows as a Service" model, Microsoft says it plans to deliver two or three new releases each year. The Anniversary Update is the first release in the Redstone update series, and it's scheduled to arrive at more or less the same time that the original upgrade offer ends. Another Redstone feature update is scheduled to arrive in the first half of 2017.
    In the last few weeks before July 29, Microsoft will no doubt brag a bit about the success of the upgrade offer so far and encourage holdouts to upgrade. (Remember, the point of the deadline is to add urgency.)
    And, of course, the end of this upgrade offer doesn't eliminate the possibility of a new offer. If not free, then perhaps a discounted in-place upgrade. But an extension of the current offer is not going to happen.
    Microsoft updates support policy: New CPUs will require Windows 10
    PCs based on new CPU architectures, including Intel's Skylake chips, will require Windows 10.
    One important date to watch is October 31, 2016. That's whenOEM sales of new PCs with Windows 7 Professional officially end. That means more than three years in which the population of Windows 7 PCs will presumably shrink as old PCs die and are replaced by newer models running Windows 10 (or aren't replaced at all).
    Anyone who has taken Microsoft up on its free Windows 10 upgrade offer before the expiration date has a "digital entitlement" tied to that hardware. That upgrade doesn't expire.
    A few logistical questions remain unanswered. For example, you can currently use a product key for Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 to activate the corresponding edition of Windows 10. Come July 30, Microsoft's activation servers should stop accepting those keys. But we won't know until that day comes.
    As of that anniversary, Microsoft also says it plans to begin uninstalling its controversial Get Windows 10 software. But there are no plans to remove the Windows 10 download page, which is useful for anyone who needs the Windows 10 bits to do a recovery or a clean install on a machine that already has a Windows 10 license. But will the Upgrade Now button still work without requiring payment upfront?
    It would be nice if Microsoft would publish details about how this transition will work, but after watching the company's communications over the past year, I'm not betting on that.
    OH... WHAT WAS THE QUESTION???  : - ))

    I would not expect to see any support issues with Windows 7 until nearing 2020, HOWEVER, you never can tell. I trust Windows 7 and believe it is solid OS. There has been no evidence of vulnerabilities and drivers are pretty tight (good).
    As Paul noted that Windows XP still working. I actually have desktop with my homemade version of Windows XP pro sp3 version 2002. . MS Genuine Validation  was tricky (damn near impossible) but modified WPAevent in the registry and BOOM,, Genuine MS validation. I use it on WGT. It runs smoother and seems like slower (more control-ability) during putting and my decreasing avg reflects that.
    I totally believe customers are not going to give up their Windows 7 easily which will frazzle MS. 
    WE MUST BELIEVE...
