It seems that others have now encountered the change in how Windows 10 handles webcams after the Anniversary update. Many applications simply never try to go beyond 720p30, so it wasn’t clear to me how many people would be impacted by this change. After…

It’s happening again, just like last year. Invino once again has a very good deal on Saddleback Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville in Napa Valley. This time it’s the 2011 vintage offered for $39.99 (with free shipping) which they report as being marked down…

Some years ago I installed a MaxSeal pet door into one of the French doors that leads into my home office. This lets Shadow & Gwen wander in and out over the course of the work day. I opted for their dual-flap model, which aims to be more weather-tight.…

The menu is good. I choose the Chef's menu, which is a 3 course fixed price offer for $28. There were three appetizers, three entrees and three deserts offered. It was a Wednesday evening and the place was very busy, hardly an open table. The first course arrived quickly, but the second course was quite delayed. The wait staff was attentive and courteous, but very busy. My one wish was for a better choice of wines by the glass, especially Italian wines. I would have appreciated a Ripasso or Barbera where they only offered a Sangiovese.
