PC Power Supply and Cooling Issues .. A gotcha!

Occasional PC video failures may be due to system overheating and may be rectified by added robust exhaust fans. An assumption that it was the power supply, which had previously resolved the matter, wasn’t the cause for my most recent errant PC condition. Note that if swapping over power supplies, only use the power cables supplied with the new supply. Otherwise you can fry hard drives! 
Also covered is how to simply get system uptime and a recommendation for PC Health (CPU temperatures, fans etc) is given.

XAML Layout for a Dictionary–Part 1

I had a Dictionary of values that I wanted to display in an XAML UI as part of a UWP app. My initial foray was to use a ListView with a binding to the dictionary  ListView.ItemTemplate/DataTemplate.

This article discusses my trials and tribulations with this issue and includes my final solution.
