In 2010, I got myself an Arduino Duemilanove, here is the link to my post https://nhymbe.net/arduino/. I got interested in learning about it and wanted to see what can I build with it. I know I have a decent knowledge of how to code in C/C++ and a decent knowledge of electronics which I think would be enough to start learning Arduino. Unfortunately, life got busy, so I never had the opportunity to delve deeper into my Arduino projects.
Fast forward to 2023, while cleaning and inspecting my belongings, I stumbled upon the Arduino and its accessories I purchased 13 years ago. It reminded me of my initial enthusiasm and curiosity about exploring its potential. When my children saw it, they were curious and asked what it was. I explained that it was a device I wanted to try out long ago, but life got busy, and I never had the chance to explore it fully. Now, seeing their interest, I’m considering giving it another shot and involving them in discovering its possibilities together.
Join me as I start to re-learn Arduino. I will document this learning journey for you to follow our progress. Feel free to reach out if you have any suggestions or questions, or need assistance.Read more

I have been trying to update 2 of our computers to Windows 10 – 1903 and I run into this issue where this error shows up at around 50% – 70% of the installation process.
Feature update to windows 10 Version 1903 – error 0xc19001e2
First, I thought it was probably because I needed to install Dell updates. But after the successful installation of drivers and firmware updates and a restart of the computer, I was still getting the same error.
The computer was a Dell OptiPlex 7060 with an Intel Core i5-8500T, 8GB of RAM and an HDD of 500GB.
As a good tech do, I googled the error. There were a lot suggestions out there on how to fix it. After 30 mins of searching and reading through different forums, a post got my attention. The issue was marked solved by uninstalling the Dell Data Security and Dell Encryption. I remembered in a previous task I was working on, that I needed to uninstall the same software to fix a different issue.
After I uninstalled Dell Data Security and Dell Encryption, I was able to successfully update the computers’ OS to Windows 10 – 1903.
Here is the link on How to Uninstall Dell Data Protection Security Tools.
