@ZippyV: yikes. that is good to see first hand. so noted.
In regards to Windows Updates...
Does anyone know how to:
1. Look up the release history of a specific KB? i.e. some KBs are re-released so to be able to see that history.
2. Look up when the release was flagged as a "Optional" then/or "Recommended" then/or "Critical"?
Alright Larry. It is time to squeeze into that scuba gear and grab a handicam for an office visit.
@kettch:Nice. Mexico's are like that too. At my last job I had a co-worker who was color blind so it was a nice confirmation of things. I don't have that luxury now though.
But given all the varieties (thanks for the links figs) of color or lack of color detection it seems to be fruitless to have a monitor setup to work with as development occurs. Of course there are some monitor drivers that have the ability to save presets so that is a one-off option for saving the various combinations.
Was doing some work on a Dashboard yesterday and began to wonder how the graphics would appear to those who are color blind. This lead to wondering whether it was possible to set one monitor of my monitors to black/white/grayscale so that I could quickly drag a GUI from color to black/white/grayscale while developing.
I found a post on a random site regarding a NVIDIA specific scenario.
The above link exposed the NVIDIA Digital vibrance setting which does appear to set the monitor to black/white/grayscale.
1. Is there a Windows way to do this for a single monitor that isn't driver specific? (the INTEL drivers don't have such a setting)
2. Anyone happen to be color blind who can verify that this mode is a good representation of what a color blind person would see?

If they really want to follow Apple's success, they need to do what Apple did and change the game of what a smartphone is. Yet another touchscreen slab with apps from an app store isn't a gamechanger, nor are UWP apps.
They need to take continuum to the next level and make a smartphone an actual pc in your pocket, not the simple semi-pc that runs timy apps that it is now. That means ditching ARM, going x86/x64 and making sure that I have an actual, full functioning PC running Win32 apps on the desktop as soon as I plug it into the USB-C cable on my desk. That's going to be the next smartphone era, not "the same thing as the iPhone but with a different interface and this universal platform that nobody is seriously interested in using."
YES! .... YES! .... YES!

@spivonious: The cost of code signing is really in the implementation and administration headaches.
We sign everything. It doesn't matter. By the time a new cert is needed or an existing cert needs to be killed I end up spending a day just trying to remember how to best do it.
