11:24 PM, EDT:
The me take you back in time a little bit. It was 10 PM. And I had just woken up from some kind of a rather profound dream. That I can't of course remember. In any event when I woke up the first allow my mind was that when I installed Dragon, DNS, 11.5 this very last time. I was doing so from a disk that had been sent to me from Dragon NaturallySpeaking. And then as I was still waking up I started thinking. And then I realized why there were so many issues with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. When I was trying to use it before when I had upgraded to it from DNS 10.5. And I realized that one of the main problems was that I was actually applying, specifically speaking, an upgrade to DNS 10.5. I was not installing a cold version, meaning a clean version, meaning a start from zero version, of DNS 11.5. I was installing an upgrade.
So consequently when I had done that the upgrade was actually modifying certain files that had already existed with 10.5. Meaning DNS 10.5. And as a result, as my system reports, or system updates, at the time, clearly showed. I was having nothing but issues with DNS 11.5. Which of course at that time was an upgrade.
So I'm sitting there. And I'm having a cup of tea and I'm thinking. And then I remembered that from this cold installation, meaning this installation from ground zero upward, that I had used that version for almost a solid year with virtually no problems whatsoever. Of course until I downloaded IE 11. At which point I had nothing but problems.
So again I'm just sitting there thinking about this. And then I realized that in reality the DNS 11.5, from ground zero upward, build, would actually probably be the perfect solution. And so I thought about that for a little bit longer. And I decided to give it a try.
So the first thing I did was to save the profile for my DNS 10.5. Which I did. I exported it to a folder where I have my other profiles for DNS 12. And then I completely removed everything from DNS 10. Then I did a complete cleaning of the system to make sure there would be no remnants whatsoever. So I was thinking that once I got DNS 11 on to the system. I would be able to then import my profile from DNS 10 and then simply upgrade it to the new DNS 11.5.
And so, I then went ahead and I installed from the disk, DNS 11.5. And the most amazing thing is that my original profile that I had with DNS 11.5, which actually was my original profile I had used. When Aileen was dying, which had been DNS 10.5. That profile is what came up automatically, for some reason, when I actually finished installing DNS 11.5. And the significance of that profile is that it's the most accurate profile I ever created.
So as soon as I saw that. Believe me. It was like a very big lightbulb went off in my head. So, I then immediately exported that profile so that I would make sure I had it. And then I began to run some tests. It absolutely works perfectly with IE 9. In every single way. And even though it's about 1 1/2 times larger as far as system memory and resources then DNS 10.5. Because of how I have installed it. The system is just behaving perfectly. Which means of course that there is no way in the world that I am going to upgrade to IE 11. That will just not happen.
So this is really just amazing news. Because the real issue I began having who is IE was when I went to DNS 12. Because IE 9. And DNS 12 don't really have a match. Which I've already shown a few times in some of my system updates. And DNS 12 definitely does not have any kind of a match with IE 11. Furthermore, DNS 11 actually still has the same issues that existed who is DNS prior to DNS 12, with Firefox, pursuant to the shockwave flash player. Which is fine because I've already dedicated my system to IE 9 and Windows live writer, based on what I've been writing over the last several days in my system updates.
So this is just probably some of the best news I've had in a while. Which is good because I've been looking at the air-quality reports this evening and I will do a separate Journal entry for them because they are really sort of incredible.
Plus I definitely am going to do a Journal entry before I go back to sleep about the Ebola situation because I'd rather talk about it. Just a little bit more clearly. The people at CNN are definitely some of the most intelligent people to listen to regarding the entire Ebola situation. Dr. Gupta is by far one of the leading medical experts in this country. I can say that with absolute confidence. But my take on the entire Ebola and the bronchial infection situation is from a slightly different perspective.
So I do want to do a Journal entry on both of these things which I will do, like I said, before I go back to sleep.
But I definitely wanted to share this information because it's just absolutely unbelievably incredible. I had no idea that my earlier profile which is actually one of the most accurate ones I ever created, was still on the system. Which is just remarkable. Because it's definitely going to make doing things a lot easier. All I have to do is just do a little bit of training and it will be right up to speed. So this is really unbelievably fantastic news. This is going to give my hands a real rest. And that's exactly what I need.
And I will also discuss that in this other Journal entry the I'm going to be doing regarding public health and personal health.
But I definitely wanted to share this information because I think it's very important especially for anyone who is using DNS whether they are using DNS 12 or 11.5 or even 10.5. I think that sharing what I am experiencing regard to using DNS, Dragon NaturallySpeaking, is probably a very good idea.
But this also changes the entire mindset that I have regarding Windows 10. Because DNS 13 is already out. Which means DNS 13 is just not going to be concurrent with or have any real synchronicity with Windows 10. Because Windows 10 has not been formally released. So therefore DNS 13 has no basis on which to have any of the programming calls that will in fact be required in Windows 10. So right off the bat for anyone who is using DNS 11.5 or 12 if they moved to Windows 10 the are probably going to have to purchase a completely new upgraded from Dragon NaturallySpeaking that will in fact have the programming calls necessary and the synchronicity necessary for Windows 10. So right off the bat you're looking at $200 in addition to the price for the operating system of Windows 10. Which of course then makes a very strong case for not upgrading from Windows 7.
And because Microsoft has made IE 11 In the Way that they did like I said with either DNS 11.5 or DNS 12. There is basically no compatibility whatsoever or very little compatibility between DNS 11.5 or DNS 12 and IE 11. There's just are showing no compatibility. There are the very rudimentary programming calls that are able to be made with DNS 11.5. And DNS 12 in IE 11. But that's it. There's just no linkage hardly at all. So there's just no way in the world that I'm going to move over to IE 11 with either DNS 11.5 or DNS 12 unless Microsoft decides to change the formatting of IE 11 such that it will have a higher degree of compatibility with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. And Microsoft is not seem disposed to do that. All of which like I said before. This makes a very strong case for staying exactly where I am.
So this news. Like I said is really amazing news as far as my migrating upward to DNS 11.5. Because it has actually proved to be an excellent choice. It's just going to make doing things so much easier.
And I of course will write later.
I said good energy and high hopes for happiness, good health, and all good things always to everyone.
