Sorry, can't say Mick.  I do work with Windows 10 on some client systems, but personally I still use Windows 7 on all my PCs and laptops.  Still not a fan of 10...

Good idea, Mick...

Sounds like you might be in luck, H.  Be interesting to see what it actually is...

Great cover of a great song, Dan.  Really enjoyed it...

It plays fine

Cool.  And yeah, I would guess we all have a tendency to occasionally drop/bump/scratch our instruments over the years...

Sounds like one of my days, H.  Hopefully the wound doesn't hinder the use of the Schecter...

I have a Windows 10 PC and laptop, and a Windows 8 laptop, but only to stay up to date for testing and client tech support.

My main computers for work (and play) - 3 PCs and 2 laptops - are all Windows 7 Pro.  For me, 7 is the most productive OS out there.  I know it will lose support in a couple years, but I use what works best for me.

For all clients (and family and friends) that have Windows 10 and have problems or don't really like it, I use a free program from Ashampoo to disable all the spying:
And also use "Classic Shell" or "Start MenuX" to make the start menu easier to use.
And, as H mentioned, set Windows Updates to let the user control when to update.
There are a few other things I do to try to make it a little more stable and compatible, but it's different with each system.  And of course you have to watch that updates don't reset all those changes.

For myself, I'll keep using 7 Pro as long as possible (even after full support stops).  And it's what I still recommend to business clients and friends.  Just always works, and is easy to use...

Congrats, H, and hoping Santa comes through for you.  As Mick said, look forward to hearing more about it...

Good tune, kostiainen, nice work...

Welcome to the site, Richards12.  I'm on the wrong side of the planet, afraid I can't help with this one.

But Mick should be along soon to offer some advice...

when I can get my hands on it, my missus seems to have commandeered it for the kitchen

 :P :P

That kind of thing seems to happen a lot, Mick.  But what the heck, eh?  Whatever makes them happy.

Tricks are okay here now, I guess.  Been a rough and busy year so far, but seems to be slowing down a little.  Maybe get some time now to get back into some music.  And how's tricks been for you (other than losing access to your THR10)?

Good video, Mick.  And that THR is quite an amp...

So it can be a bit tricky to get everything organised. At least it's all Europe :)

Sounds like "tricky" would be putting it mildly, H, but well worth the effort.  Good to see people from different areas getting together to share a love for music, especially with talent like that.  Long time till July, but we'll be waiting.  Great band...
