Windows 10x has been available to peek at for a while now via Windows 10X emulator tools but it’s now also possible to have a look via VM disk image prepared by Albacore and, I must say, it’s pretty neat.
Overall, it’s quite polished and inviting while providing what feels like a Windows ‘lite’ or, more realistically, a chromebook experience.
I’m still excited for the final product and hopeful about the reintroduction of Win32 app support.

#Jeep is back together after adding @rock_krawler 2.5
@coopertire 37” STT Pros
@blackrhinowheels 17” Arsenals at @badgerland_offroad and changing @gorhino #rockline front bumper for @roughcountry stubby w/ skid due to tire clearance on the 37s #JeepWrangler #JLRU #JeepLife
Also, I had always meant to go back and wire the 4 #LED pods and #lightbar on the #gorhino bumper for separate switching but changing it all out made it the perfect time.
New front view

All front-facing LEDs on
Front LED bar and LED pods are independently switched via the Rubicon aux switches
Took advantage of the warm weather and sanded and painted the #LicensePlateRelocation bracket, #camerahousing and #3rdbrakelight / plate light bracket.
The rust was actually worse than this pic – the license plate frame and 3rd light were getting quite bad

All back together. In hindsight, I should have painted the washers. Soon.
Fun things to come!

Baked #salmon in special #spicerub w/ #MangoYoghurt #salad @ Lake Villa, Illinois
I’ve really been enjoying the dijon sauce I typically make for salmon but didn’t want to wear it out so did a throwback to my favourite spiced salmon rub and the result was fantastic.
The salad was good, as always, with the mango yoghurt dresssing, blueberries, granola, and strawberry.
I wanted to try something a bit different with my 2nd time making ribs so, instead of the custom apricot bbq sauce I’ve made before, I followed a suggestion in Snoop Dogg’s cookbook and used a spicy arrabiata sauce for to coat the ribs after baking but pre-broil.
While I had my reservations, it was actually amazing. The spicy arrabiata sauce contrasted very nicely with the sweet from the brown sugar/garlic/pepper rub on the ribs.
The mango yoghurt salad dressing always makes the salad a nice treat. Topped with french vanilla granola, strawberries, and blueberries, it really feels like eating a dessert.
I decided to try something new (to me) for our special night and I made #SauteedClams in #CurrySauce from the #FourKitchens cookbook. They were fantastic <3
The finished product
The homemade curry sauce was added to boiling white wine and tamarind juice
The clams opened up nicely whilst being sautéed

Elected & Impeached
On 16 November 2018, I was elected as Mayor of Hell, Michigan. Later that same day, I was impeached. During my time in Hell, I met with the locals (my constituents), enjoyed some food and toured the town.
Video of my appointment as Mayor of Hell, Michigan.
My time as Mayor begins
My tour of Hell begins at the Gates of Hell
My tour continues beyond the chapel and weather station near the Lovers Bridge and river.
During lunch the founder of the town, John Colone, presented me with my Deed for 1 square inch of waterfront property in Hell, Michigan – complete with soil analysis indicating high concentrations of sulfur, brimstone, and human bone.
After hearing rumours of my impending impeachment, I snapped a shot near the Hell, Michigan sign at Screams Ice Cream.
Video of my subsequent impeachment and removal from office.
Formerly Route 61 – this location is now known as Graffiti Highway
The underground coal mine fires burning since the late 60s made the highway unusable
Odd Fellows Cemetery is believed to be close to the starting point of the fires, steam vents can be seen in and around the area

Family from #Wyoming and #Missouri came by #Massachusetts it was great seeing my mother, sister, and Danny again :) @ Marlborough, Massachusetts
A couple of days ago, I went on a 2-state off-roading trip with my good friend Brooks.
We started in New Hampshire and worked our way through Mount Ephraim and then Bellows Falls culminating in an awesome overlook of the state borders.
Video of our trip:
A few still shots:
Brooks w/ the Jeep & the most capable Subaru in New England!

We even met a friend (with a bullhorn!) up near the overlook (video below)
After nearly a decade of fun, the Jeep JK is sold. It’s headed to a new life in Wyoming. I hope the new owners have as many wonderful adventures as we’ve had with it.
