Was somewhat disappointed as I first read that as "Manchester man FINDS....." Didn't seem to make a lot of sense tho.

Re: The only thing Microsoft is shovelling these days...
"...the troubled operating system was [excreted] to Windows Insiders." FTFY
So is the update safe yet?
Ha, ha!!! just kidding!
Re: OneDrive - Why even touch user folders?
"I don't use a Microsoft Login" A while back my desktop went rather spectacularly titsup and somehow hosed my main gmail account which I've never been able to recover. This meant I was no longer automatically logged into 10, which seems to grieve it highly. I have found that there seems to be absolutely no reason to log into MS when using 10. The sad little "PLEASE LOG IN....PRETTY PLEASE???" popups are both mildly annoying and amusing.
“90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds.” I.e., how did I get this page? That said, a lot of gamers and a not insignificant number of others are going to be pissed.
No one was surprised by this?
Ah. Thank you. So now I can simply say that it is hard to believe that yahoo.com still exists.
It is truly hard to believe that Yahoo! still exists even if rebranded. On the other hand, I gather that AOL is still something of a thing, so....
Isn't this one way to check to see if you are at a legitimate site? How can shortening the URL help?
As an American
let me say that our government is well and truly screwed at this point. <sigh>
That is so much more funny than when I accidentally submitted a batch of cards that generated an infinite loop of printing mostly empty pages. Now, those were really large pages then. I just giggled at the process for a bit before telling the operator, uh, you need to terminate that one please.
The world, well the Western world at least, seems to be in the throws of a severe backlash to 'progress' which is increasingly viewed as abhorrent. Independent reasoning need not apply as we have enough knowledge, thank you very much. This 'closing of the Gates of Itjihad' worked out SO well for Islam (/s). Alvin Toffler seems more and more prescient with his concept of 'Future Shock'. Ah well, the future is, indeed, not evenly distributed.
I'm not all that sure it has progressed all that much since then.
Re: Terrible writer
I've read one book by Patterson and that was enough. Also, just because someone is popular it does NOT mean they are any good. Dan Brown is extremely popular, bit dear lord he's awful. I've only gotten through 5 pages of him.
Amusing, but I don't think I could annoy my cats in that way. They'd just leave if it bothered them.
I kept reading the name Fratric as Frantic. It seemed reasonable.

"If the ' leader of the free world' can't be arsed to spell correctly, what else can't he be arsed to do?"
Now just hold it right there, bub! As an American, I think I can say that Angela Merkel probably can spell just fine!!
Re: Of all places
"Anything else (laws, etc.) is just feel-good fluff." Do, please, tell us why then this is a major problem in America and in no other developed country. Is America the only country on the entire planet to have these 'root causes'?
Re: The Church-of-Facebook - Is this a Cult or what?
We knew what Zuck thought of his marks from day one. I believe 'stupid fucks' or the equivalent was expressed. Why is anyone even surprised?
That long-awaited Mark Zuckerberg response: Everything's fine! Mostly fixed! Facebook's great! All good in the hoodie!
It is interesting that MZ seems to have stepped up his sale of FB shares recently. Wonder why?
Re: That will be an improvement
Turns out that you can actually get rid of IE using Programs and Features in Windows 10. Not Edge, of course, but this might help with your problem.
Apparant moral here
is that you can screw over sick people all you want but NEVER rich people.
Boy, am I surprised
said no one.
Re: Surely it can be adapted...
Just wait for the hack that can set this thing off in ANY 'smart' home. That oughta be fun. [not]
Re: What a mare
Well, jeeze! You were strongly warned.
"Microsoft hopes to play a part with its quantum API and Q# language." Perhaps they can get THIS one right. Well, one can only hope.
Re: Everyone is running away from...
Ya know, that really would explain a few things.
Hows about fining him a million dollars a second. The man is scum.
I have no sympathy whatsoever for this gang of criminals. The quicker they are brought to justice, the better for us all.
"i don't expect i'll be uninstalling ublock origin in honour of this... "
The Internet would be a toxic stew without ublock origin. Or so I assume and I am not about to attempt to find out otherwise.
Re: That pic...
That was my first thought too!
Re: evil feds
This reminds me of a story told me by a Hungarian who successfully escape during the failed revolution. His father was 'disappeared' for some years because he had slaughtered the family pig for food. The authorities took exception to that as, obviously, it was the state's pig and not the family's.
This is why Republicans
here in the US have cut funding for quality control on so many things. Who need it? Plus, it fun!
"Microsoft" and "fixes something" are two things that really do not belong in the same sentence.
I am impressed with Facebook's argument: Yes, we are bad for you, but it is your fault.
"Is introspection akin to Calculus or Topology?"
Topology, most certainly!
Well of course he is a Republican. And the accusations are not surprising either.
With any luck, this will kill off Uber. But we haven't been having much luck lately, have we?
Anything that can be done to shaft AT&T is a good thing.
Re: Dark Days ahead.
Actually, they don't even need this to throttle dissent since Pai is demonstrating that they can simply ignore it and do what they want. Which really sucks.
Just more demonstraion
that this so-called Administration is completely out of control. At all points.

"You said, "Drupal is pretty secure"... are you kidding us?"
Perhaps RuPaul was meant instead
Re: Missing poll answer
@updraaft102 Will have to check out Waterfox again.. Loving Pale Moon. Firefox,, sadly, sucks now.
Re: Missing poll answer
I've already buggered off to Pale Moon and am mostly very happy about it.
"Microsoft's foray into [anything] was a bumbling, half-hearted fiasco. FTFY

Re: "platform of built-in solutions to optimize your Windows 10 investment"
Uh, pardon my French, but Windows update is seriously fucking with my computer. It is renaming many of my folders and simply erasing a goodly number of my files. Enough, already....
"media.autoplay.enabled = 0
Er, nope. Tried it and stuff will still autoplay. And anyways, Firefox is turning into a clone of Chrome. I really like Pale Moon, but there are some addons (such as for stopping autoplay) that don't work.
Desperately hoping that Uber collapses from it own hubris. The company should be taken to an unknown location and summarily shot.
