And Then, That’s It...

Okay, that’s it for the detailed instructions from the good Ripper relating to deleting unwanted applications that come bundled with Windows 10, and many thanks to him once again and I’m sure many of you folks will find it useful. Over the next couple of days I’ll glue it into a PDF  thingy and then, when I remember how to do, it I’ll throw it up onto a cloud and make a link to it over on the left.

Spookily, after posting the last post, Windows did one of they updates thus suggesting that Microsoft still haven’t got it quite right yet. Imagine, if you dare, that they built a car and six months after releasing it on the public they sent you a message excitedly asking you to drop the car off at the dealership for bug fixes and the installation of some exciting new features.

One of these new features, they breathlessly inform you, will be the upgrading of the steering so that turning the steering wheel to the right will make the car go right; turn it left and the car will go left. This is in answer to user requests relating to some confusion when, upon turning the wheel, the car went in the opposite direction to that of the wheel turn.

Another feature added after many requests is to move the gear shift to  a position between the front seats as many users found it difficult to enter and leave the car with the gear shift located next to the driver side door. Also added is an exciting new capability to the gear shift with the introduction of a reverse option. Finally for this upgrade, and to show we are listening to our users, the hand-break has been relocated to a position between the drivers and front passenger seats, close to the gear shift, thus alleviating the need to get in the back of the car whenever the hand-break needed setting or releasing. We feel sure these upgrades will enhance the user experience and thank you for your continuing support...

And so to end with something that, once upon a time, would’ve been completely different. Despite that, the big worry is  to worry about insects becoming extinct? They do indeed walk amongst us...

With regards insect extinction, it seems like only weeks ago that supermarkets had started selling insect meals as a way to save the planet. Confused? Wot to do. We need to be told.
