Welcome to the first Contributor of the Week thread for the new decade!
This week we're recognizing, Sussamb!
Sussamb has been a member of POI Factory for over 5 years!
We're recognizing him this week for his assistance in a Garmin reboot thread and his help with multiple Garmin EU threads.
Thank you, Sussamb!
This is the place to talk about things that are not GPS related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).
Anything to keep your windmill alive.
This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

A lot of topics have been discussed at POI Factory, and someone may have already answered your question.
Has anyone been affected by this?
Today I pulled into the car wash, haven 't been for over 6 mos. I noticed that on the selection screen was my license plate and state.
Yes, my car is registered/insured no big deal.
Just that it would seem that in a car wash such technology would be cost prohibitive.
Asked the guy what it was for, and he said we sell that info for $1/plate. WOW!
The NSA has discovered a critical vulnerability in Windows 10 and reported it to Microsoft (https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/aa20-014a). Microsoft has included a patch to fix it in the January cumulative update released yesterday 1/14/2020. You may want to apply this update sooner rather than later.
Taking one more week to honor the Contributors of the Year.
We will resume posting Contributors of the Week, starting next Monday!
I am just now on the tail end of a nasty bought with the flu. I Ended up needing to go to the local urgent care type place. Not a fan of this place by the insurance wants you to use it instead of the (more expensive) ER. Any some blood work, an EKG, yea I have the flu so the give me some medicine and send me home, saying if it get worse go the the ER.

Since it's 2020, shall we talk about vision, particularly eyeglasses?
I recently had an eye exam and am now finding more choices for corrective lenses than ever.
There are the ones for blue screen, but now there are progressives for desk work, which I guess have a larger middle viewing window. One of the things I hated about needing bifocals was losing my side vision.

It seems the return policy has become very liberal, no reason needed and drop off at Kohl's or UPS Store without anything.
Yesterday, I received an auto part that was clearly opened (seal broken) and dented. hmmmmm......
Toronto and other municipalities in the area are installing Speed Cameras in the coming three months. Warning signs are already in place on streets where these cameras will be deployed.
Consumer Electronics Show 2020 is next week. Will Garmin have any new announcements of interest to us here?
update 11:56 EST on 1/2/20:
The PANYNJ just announced that they are keeping the carpool plan until all electronic tolling is installed. This could go into 2021 depending.
Talk about a reverse money grab! $6+ less revenue, per all the carpool vehicles going across, that's a lot of money. Man talk about good faith!
Thanks to everyone who voted!
Like last year, we're going to recognize three members of our community as contributors of the year; our top vote getter and two of the top 10 who we agree have contributed greatly this past year.
First, let's begin by mentioning this year's nominees:
This is the official POI Factory Joke thread.

I have been lurking in the weeds, not posting much lately. Life is happening all around me, and I've gotten sucked up into it. Tomorrow, I'm going to plant my keister on the couch and let the TV provide me with mindless drivel all day. Stay safe everyone, and be careful. Tonight is amateur night after all...
Please excuse this post if it has been covered in one of the other Win 10 threads. I wasn't able to find pertinent information in my search attempts.
I'm in the process of setting up a new Win 10 PC and I'm trying to decide the best email option. Since many here have already converted to Win 10, I'm curious how you handle your email.
