ICYWTK: I wasn't even born when Microsoft Windows was announced by Bill Gates on November 10, 1983. The first independent version of Microsoft Windows, version 1.0, released on November 20, 1985, but achieved little popularity. And then over the years more and more upgraded versions were introduced. I remember in September 2000, Microsoft released a successor to Windows 98 called Windows Me, short for "Millennium Edition". It was the last DOS-based operating system from Microsoft. Windows Me was conceived as a quick one-year project that served as a stopgap release between Windows 98 and Windows XP. A year later in October 2001, Microsoft released Windows XP (codenamed "Whistler") which was actually the merging of the Windows NT/2000 and Windows 95/98/Me lines. There were lots of versions of Windows XP. More versions followed Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10. So far, nine major versions of Windows 10 have been released. There is a new version update of Windows 10, Oct 2020.

I was just reading about the the features and improvements coming with the Windows 10 October 2020 Update while taking a break from my work creating new ad campaigns for Pinterest and Facebook for one of my clients. I am actually coordinating the graphics with a social media expert that has been hired to improve the organic seo search for them. Actually they have done an amazing job so my client has finally broken into the first page with a number of their important key word terms just by making sure the actually website is search compliant. I'm impressed and will certainly mention them to some of my other clients. I understand some of what goes into getting results for organic web searches, but my strength is creating great graphic designs for my clients' sites. Nevertheless whenever there is a Windows update I like to read What's New and check out the newest design elements.

Speaking of design elements, I have just taken the leap to have my living room furniture reupholstered. We have a large sofa and accompanying chairs that are showing signs of age - stains, worn patches, frayed edges, etc. We did a search for "furniture restoration NYC" and interviewed 3 of the top ranking companies. After confirming an estimate, discussing our preferences, and selecting the new fabrics, our furniture was picked up. When the reupholstery experts were finished, they delivered our sofa and chairs. I still can't believe the difference the new fabrics make - our furniture looks brand new! Not only do they look great, but also the reupholstery included new padding so they are much more comfortable. I love relaxing with my laptop on our new chairs and working on our clients' sites.
