I am not a fan of Windows 10

I was just doing some work on the game again, just hunting for bugs and small tweaks and Windows crashed on me a few times.

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I keep seeing Explorer crashing a lot, and a lot of things just run poorly in comparison to my previous Windows 7 installation.

Admittedly my computer is quite old, still a 32 bit system with only 2Gb usable memory. I have a laptop of similar nature, running Vista (I am going to have to upgrade that soon as it is nearing it's end of life) When I can afford it I will have to get a new desktop system, when I can afford it.

But still Windows 10 seems more optimised to be used on a handheld/tablet or with a touch screen and is a pain at times to use. Still, enough complaining, it is the current Windows, and I am a computer professional so I use it to gain knowledge and experience, but I do not like it!

As an aside, still got a damned cold, but the temperatures have passed and just feeling run down and coughing a bit. Apparently the strain going around in my local area is a particularly long lasting one, not as sever as many, just hangs around a lot. But I am a diabetic and these things hit me a bit harder.

Sorry for lack of updates

sorry for not posting much recently, I have been ill with a cold for a couple of weeks and otherwise a little sidetracked.

I have only been working a limited amount on SlaveMaker recently, it has been difficult to find time, between health and some other things. I was working a little on another game and sometimes when you are in the middle of something it is difficult to break away from it.

I cannot give an estimate at this time for the next release of SlaveMaker, I hope in the next month or so, but I have said that the last couple of posts, but assuming I get over this cold soon (it is a stubborn one) I hope to keep this estimate.
