On New Years Eve I decided to make use of this upgrade on one of the two laptops I have in my household which can run Windows 10.

I still dislike Windows 10, that especially since Classic Shell is no longer being actively updated, and I can't justify the cost of the Pro Edition at home.

Well, I have 7 or so days to decide whether to return to Windows 7, and I'll probably do that. Maybe I'll revisit Windows 10 when it is finally rolled out at work. Oh well... :huh:

I haven't seen it yet, maybe because I'm on Firefox ESR.

That's like adding insult to injury after shafting the users of the most popular old style add-ons with the "shiny fast" new version.

Straight outta say what?


How to tell a close friend and partner in business that I'm seeing his ex-girlfriend?

The way the malware was delivered on top of a legitimate software update is quite scary.

What next, malware with Windows Updates? Oh wait, Windows 10 updates... :-\

Taking a break from some of the books I'm plodding through on my Kindle (Columbine by Dave Cullen, Steve Jobs by
Walter Isaacson), A book I'm currently reading is:

Persuader by Lee Child (A Jack Reacher novel) 

I haven't seen any of the Tom Cruise movies, but the description of Jack Reacher has him at six foot five or so - and I keep on thinking how much bigger taller and tougher the guy in the novel is in comparison to the actor.

I don't view the actors in the movies as anything according to the descriptions in the novels.  Lestat is also not described in a way that would make one think "Tom Cruise", but he was excellent in the role.  I find that those who look at the novels in the same manner as the movie/TV series end up being disappointed by what is truthfully in my opinion the most superficial thing about the descriptions.

I just find it amusing while I'm reading the author's description. It wouldn't stop me from enjoying a movie with Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.

MilesAhead - I actually never realized Daniel Craig was not "tall/tough". I actually enjoyed his portrayal as Bond, I thought he was one of the better Bonds, excluding Sean Connery of course.
