Philips Hue Hub - Power Over Ethernet (PoE)



As the Philips Hue Hub v2 does not come with a PoE option (Power over Ethernet), I decided to look in to a way to power it via PoE.

The Hub sits about 1 meter away from the switch behind the TV  (Netgear GS108P) and I needed to free up a power outlet on the extension for another device.

Fire Pro Wrestling World - Japanese Menu


After downloading Fire Pro Wrestling World from Steam, I was slightly taken back to find that the menu was all in Japanese.

I needed to figure out how to alter the menu to English, after going through a few options, I eventually got there.

Google Photos - Enable face grouping UK



It looks as if there is an issue with turning on the face grouping option in the U.K. within Google photos.

I am not too sure if this is a Google restriction or maybe a GDPR issue, one thing that I am aware of is that I want this option turned on for my Google photos.

Enabling this option will set Google to work and let it scan through your photos library to create albums from faces it thinks look to be the same (it doesn't always get it right).

There was a time where you could not display the seconds within the system clock, and even today it is not set by default within Windows 10.


Windows 10 - Emoji's

Not every region has access to Emoji's within Windows 10.

There is a reg key entry though that can alter this.
