Especially companies like Disney Pixar.
It seems there are a lot of adult obsessives, according to a Disney fan quite a few adults pay for advance tickets to hug people dressed up as characters.
They would pay a fortune for a doll like the Frozen princesses, or even the snowman (with snowballs).
With wildcard searches + and - worked.
Being able to do <randompartword>* was usefull and returned a good list of sites where the randompartword was important.
Google is getting painfull
word 1 is common word 2 is rare
site 1 lots of blah
Underneath word 2 is crossed out
and so on down the search
So put in + in front
No it looks for +word 2 not YOU MUST HAVE WORD 2
Search engines, I despair, all shopping sites now
Except for my colour palette. May just be typical male.
I cannot tell the difference between pastel shades they all look the same to me, light blue, light green ect.
So when I see light grey and lighter grey I cannot actually see what it there (Google maps is a prime example).
So as far as I am concerned there are about 15 or so usable colours, and that a lot of the pastel shades would be the same.
But I have no problems with photos and the like.
The heated discussions between FoxPro users and Clipper developers.
Later the open warfare between NT Server and Netware supporters*
* I actually relished telling customers their software is now slower because they downgraded their server operating system. MS never mentioned the half speed file access over Netware.
I liked the idea, the fun, the way of doing it.
Read most of his books, (75% to 80%), still need to read a few to complete the set, (missed a few in the middle).
But I did notice a style change on the last few though, Raising Steam felt like it was cowritten.
The Shepherds Crown was a great finish to his series, very poignant.
Not sure where I saw the film though, the one with David Jason, as I never had Sky. But he seemed too old to be RIncewind.
But better no more books than half written and badly finished books.
The only thing I would have wanted would be if the characters were ones we knew, would they have been OK.
My TV is slightly thick, OK an early smart one with no applications.
Runs on Linux.
Not networked, no point.
My smart source is a games console, now that has the grunt to handle anything thrown at it, and will also be supported past end of manufacture (because there are over 60 million out there).
Reliable .exes become unreliable causing support issues.
Printing layout issues requiring recompilation of the report writers code (if you have it.)
Random hangs of the OS on itself.
Then annoyances on the GUI, why does start menu bring up little pictures of random rubbish, where is there something called a Store running?
Why is everything sorted strangely?
I am currently on 7 (due to getting over powered PC when 7 was current), but absolutley dreading having to have Windows 10, I see the problems other users in the office are having and sitting here wondering if I can get my PC to last another 12 years.
I just know I will be a nightmare to the hardware maintenance company when I am finally punished.
