Chocolatey 1.0.0 got released last week (chocolatey/choco · GitHub)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/03/24

Last week finally there was the stable [Wayback/Archive] Release version 1.0.0 · chocolatey/choco · GitHub.

So I fixed the Wikipedia page

It was a few days after the 11th birthday “Celebration”: [Wayback/Archive] Chocolatey Software Blog | This One Goes To 11! Celebrating 11 Years Of Chocolatey. Not a really festive post, though it does have a really nice overview of 11 years of Chocolatey history and clearly showing the momentum of it has been a few years behind us.

The thing is: hardly anybody noticed the celebration nor the 1.0.0 release. Being at various 0.* versions for like a decade makes people not follow sudden version bumps closely. I only noticed when updating a bunch of testing VMs of which one had a problem, so I inspected the logs and saw the 1.0.0 version.

So these recent tweets did not gain much attention:

Anyway: the release notes indicate a few things scheduled for 2.0.0. Given the sudden 0.12.0 -> 1.0.0 bump, I have no clue far (or near!) in the future that will be.

It is kind of both a saddening and relieved feeling: like for instance Stack Overflow/Stack Exchange (both in the same age cohort as Chocolatey), Chocolatey is just there and mostly works.

MSI Z77A-G43 support and downloads

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/03/24

For my link archive: [Wayback] MSI Z77A-G43 support and downloads

Note that Windows 10 does not seem to need additional drivers, even Wake-on-LAN works with the stock Windows 10 drivers (but does require two BIOS settings and three Windows driver settings, see [Wayback] Wake-on-LAN (WoL) | MSI HQ User-to-User FAQ.

Max processor information based on the below links.

  • Max processor that supports VT-d (for virtualisation), but no manual overclocking: i7 3770.
  • Max processor that supports manual overclocking, but not VT-d: i7 3770K

Some links on making a Windows 10 image backup to a network share and restoring from it

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/03/24

Earlier this month, I posted How to make a full backup of your Windows 10 PC | Windows Central.

That solution describes how to backup to and restore from a (different) local drive using the Windows 7/8.x tools ([Wayback] “Create a system image”) that still ship with Windows 10.

Soon, I need to be able to store a backup on a network location (and restore from it), so here are some links that hopefully solve this with the same tools (all via [Wayback] windows 10 restore image from network folder – Google Search):
