back to article Azure MFA falls over, Windows 10 struggles with Intel drivers, and Microsoft gives us... more Sticky Notes?

Well done, Squirrels, you've won the wobbly software badge. Now, what else did you get up to last week? It's oh so Sticky The tanks of Microsoft's Sticky Notes app appear to be sidling up to the lawns of OneNote with Redmond's Jen Gentleman teasing Windows Insiders with the prospect of images in the Post-It emulator. What say …

    Massive kudos...

    ...for the "Hey Duggee" reference! It's hard, this being a parent thing.

      Are you kidding? I watch Hey Duggee without my kids!

      I'm groaning that I recognized it in the RSS feed. I then wondered if there was a Bootnote to explain it to the others and only clicked the article to find out. Glad I'm not the only one to notice.

    The user interface has been steadily tweaked by Microsoft engineers, although sadly not to the point where one could recreate the old Windows Phone experience with it.

    And, this is a bad thing how again?! There have been fewer things as ugly as the Modern Windows (MetroUI), and, even fewer by any reliable sources to have ever been spoted in the wild. If as I susspect you find yourself to be in some disagreement, ask yourselves why Android, and Apple 'won', while WinPho lost out bigtime post 8, and 10 sometime....

    There are those out there that will bitch on ablout the "Ribbon", lord knows I'm one. But, the Live Tiles from Windows 8 & 10, was just taking the pi55 m8.

    Bored schoolboy (girl?) NSFW doodles are legendary - in the margins of exercise books or carved into desks.

    The main benefit of 'real world' sticky notes for me is that I can stick them around my screen(s), rather than cover it.

    On-screen sticky notes are something I'll just end up pushing to the back and forgetting about.

    OneNote + Sticky Notes + WhiteBoard

    Still don't get it!

    OneNote "Quick Notes" = Sticky notes?

    OneNote "Full Page View" = Whiteboard?

    Am off to develop a new circular rolling thing for my bicycle...

    Unless Sticky Notes can go on the login screen...

    ... they can't replace Post-It Notes.

    (Please don't suggest that to them, MS are probably mad enough to try these days.)

    "The vision has an educator running an interactive lesson on a large display [..]"

    I envision that that vision will be crudely interrupted by Windows Update asking if you want to reboot Now, or Now ?

      As I have explained to the admin multiple times

      a password that is 16 random characters, including numbers and symbols, that can only be recovered from a site that takes 7 minutes to load and resets every day AND is critical to my work is saved on the desktop. Yet, they are surprised every time.

      AC cause the admin is snooping

        Workaround: carve the password into your desk, cover it with a -blank- post-it to avoid suspicion and spying.

    Chalk beatification

    One or more of my school teachers, when called on by students to clarify their on-board analogue spelling of "Evocutionacy Ricosy", would write a correction in superscript capitals, "EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY", then carry on where their flog had seen internuptial. Can we hype that hhe new Writeboand hill se squally uersatiasble?

    Actually I don't think I got much about Revolutionary Biopsy at the fear odd plane, that was olny an ittustrative pasta the.
