Well, I updated my Lenovo Thinkpad T410 to Windows 10...

Who in the hell made these Windows 10 Icons!?

My Windows 7 set was needing a urgent refresh so I decided to download the Win10 iso from the Microsoft websiteupdated the old version, found the new key with Product Key 1.80, and finally install it fresh. Most of Lenovo´s drivers and software simply don´t exist yet for this new Windows flavor (Power Manager, Bluetooth and Wifi connecting tool, etc, etc). The only real thing that works and you can download from Lenovo´s support is System Update 5 but when you run it, there are no updates at all at this moment!
Bluetooth light is always on if you are using wireless, there are no battery charging options but the rest is not so bad, except for these awful icons! Who made it? Some retroguy from the nineties? They look like the Windows 95 ones. Good Lord!

Lenovo Thinkpad Power Manager and Lenovo Power Manager Driver Uninstall Problems Solved

It´s not usual around here, but this can be useful for lost Thinkpad users in the world of problems with Lenovo´s Thinkpad Power Manager. Sometimes, when this little tool is not working as it should, you may want to uninstall Power Manager in Windows 7, 8 or even 10 (I don´t know cause never used it), and install it again. If "cannot run on this system" message shows up do this:

To uninstall, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine\6\Intel 32 and right click on IKernel.exe, click the compatibility tab and choose Windows XP - Service Pack 2.

To install it again, disable the compatibility mode, returning to the native windows mode.

You should uninstall Lenovo Power Management Driver and Power Manager
reboot and install the latest versions, to solve stupid battery management problems, like when you just can´t choose some maintenance modes ("optimize for battery health", etc).

Loch Ness Monster Mystery May Have an Extremely Simple Explanation

A man who has spent nearly 25 years searching for the elusive Loch Ness monster has concluded that the creature is, in fact, a very large catfish. Steve Feltham told Sky News that he was not claiming to have solved the mystery that has baffled scientists and amateur enthusiasts for more than 70 years, but “looking at all the evidence, speaking to eyewitnesses, the most likely solution is a Wels catfish.”
The 52-year-old who left life as he knew it to move to Loch Ness and try to solve the mystery, is determined to not let legend simply remain legend. “This is an explainable phenomena,” he said, adding, “There is something to be explained in Loch Ness.”
First spotted on May 2, 1933, though a legend since the 6th century, when a legend of the Irish monk St. Columba relates that he banished a “water beast” to the depths of the River Ness, which flows from the northern end of the loch. Nessie has drawn millions to visit this body of water in the Scottish highlands where she is said to live. (rest of the story at source)
