Free transform in Adobe Photoshop CC 2019

So Adobe took it upon themselves to change the way you free transform in Photoshop CC 2019.  Before you’d hold shift and drag and it would keep its aspect ratio instead of having your text look too tall or too thin or too wide and out of aspect ratio.

I finally figured out what they did. The aspect ratio lock is on by default now.  If you hold shift it’s the reverse of what you would expect in past Photoshop versions.  I honestly don’t understand why they would do this as it’s been one way all these past years and versions and I am talking years!

Windows 10 – No network connection upon every reboot temporarily

Since the very first version of Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise, I’ve had this issue whereupon a reboot and logging back in for the first time my network connection is not available.  There network icon in the system tray near the time is also disconnected.  I’ve been able to get around the issue by giving myself a static IP address but that’s very annoying and that should not be required to have a valid Internet/network connection upon a reboot.

The symptoms are basically NO network connection, LAN or WAN.  Upon first logging into Windows, I immediately see the X on the network icon and upon opening a CMD window and doing an ipconfig command I see that I do not have an assigned IP address.

My first theory is that because I have an SSD, Windows restarts and logs me in so quickly that the DHCP service doesn’t get a chance to grab an IP address.  But that seems absurd that DHCP wouldn’t be able to either sustain or grab an IP as soon as the service is started.  I’ll continue investigating and posting my findings.
