    I just hesitate to suggest alternatives to Windows I have had so many people who are either afraid of a change outside the MS world or when they start talking about their intended use and what they "need" to do or keep it often lands me looking to getting them up on a MS system again. I know that these alternatives can be great for people but I have a habit now of keeping people as close to what they had as I can.

    I am not sure how best to clarify at the moment but it sounds like a MS Account as otherwise they wouldn't be enforcing password requirements which means cracking it is tougher and given the system probably not worth it. I would see about getting a Win10 boot media for that laptop and do a clean install from it this will let you setup a new account and password. You are not required to make a MS Account but getting away from that is becoming trickier and more difficult.

    For password issues like trouble keeping up with them some people use a "password locker" basically a single file/program with a password or lock of some kind that inside is all your IDs and Passwords that you have stored there. It has its risks but for many people it is the best compromise to the "Don't write down your PW rule"

    What’s everyone’s favorite side dish?

    Mine has to be my Mom’s “7 layer salad”. It has broccoli and cauliflower and bacon!

    Happy Thanksgiving all. Wind is nuts here in Ohio, too.
    Does gravy count as aside dish? Because I basically just put that all over everything and am in heaven.

    It happens. I always have my tablet and smart phone for backup as the cell towers aren't dependent on overhead wires for the most part.

    Leftovers are the bomb! I’m not really sure which one I like better the main meal or the leftovers.

    I guess it would have to be the main meal because of the family get together.

    Gravy is not a side dish. It is a main dish!

    I am a big fan of gravy myself. My wife doesn’t get it. She normally could care less about gravy. The same with my cousins. They don’t get it either.

    Gravy can make or break a meal.

    My Dad used to complain about not enough gravy... his standard statement was that his Mom could make more gravy with a squirrel than you (my mother/his wife) can with a big roast (beef). I like gravy on stuff like mashed potatoes and rice if possible.

    There is no such thing as too much gravy.

    Biscuits and gravy is hard to beat. It’s one of those things that most of the people I know don’t ever talk about but, they all seem to enjoy it.

    Kind of like oatmeal or grits. I hardly ever see anyone order them in a restaurant or hear anyone talking about eating them as a meal. Yet, it happens. We all know it.
