They better watch out
Everyone wants Veeam, yes, but with this change and the other general price hikes, they need to watch out, because I know for a fact that plenty of customers are starting to look elsewhere for their backup solution.

Far better than the rest of the industry?
How many SMARTphone charging cables have there really been?
3, mini USB, micro USB, USB C..
Not exactly crazy. Some earlier "smartphones" that didn't have capacitive touchscreens had legacy connectors from their respective brands (I had an SE P900 and P990), but that phase is long gone.
Apple should just switch to USB C and be done with it. If it was good enough for the iPad...
I personally consider a cookie the large, fudgy kind, better if they're warm.
There are also several biscuits rammed with chocolate chips that are called cookies, so it's just easier to call them cookies, even though they could also be considered biscuits.
They are right on the edge of biscuitness, I'll give you that.
But you have to admit, there's a fair bit of biscuit in a Penguin or Club. That said, the focus is, I agree, the chocolate. I just had to throw them in so they weren't entirely forgotten (the caramel wafer is clearly not a biscuit).
Ginger nuts are indeed fantastic, and their low-tier presence is disturbing.
It's been a while since I had a fig roll, and they are indeed also excellent, and other classics have also been named, such as shortbread.
Bourbons are good, but digestives as winners? Where are the Hob-nobs? What about a Club, Penguin, and so on. If we stretch the definition a bit too much, we could even come to Tunnock's caramel wafers..
I'm now developing quite the hunger...
Until January 2023 thank you very much. Just not for the plebs (without a workaround).
Very fondly missed. Microsoft has largely been messing up the interface ever since.
It's the last time they emphasised that they'd actually listened to feedback. Anyone remember all the great ads? They were trying to distance themselves from Vista's less than stellar response.
When I took my test, it did involve going over the Magic Roundabout, and I passed (although I had a few minors due to driving too quickly).
Though a week or so before, I heard a story about someone taking their test who must have hesitated at the wrong moment, and got rear-ended by a bus.
I've got AdGuard Home running on my network now, which should hopefully kill ads.
But fact is, for my purposes, after much research, the Lenovo Tab P11 was the only tablet on the market that met my needs.
I wanted a relatively inexpensive tablet that had:
A charging dock
A real pressure sensitive stylus
I was replacing an HP TouchPad with the wireless charger. I'd never buy a tablet without a charging dock of some kind, it fits the way we use it.
I also appreciate that the Lenovo tablet has a battery preservation mode, which means it's always between 40% and 60% charge, not just ramming 100% forever as it's almost always on charge.
It's fast, lighter than my old tablet, I like the magnetic attachment of the cover (although I wish it would dock with the cover on, like the HP TouchPad did) and I paid very little for it new on Lenovo's site (found a discount code that actually worked!). I can honestly recommend it..
"LTSC users have a tricky decision to make. Stick with the existing Windows 10 2019 LTSC, which lasts until 2029 because it was released before Microsoft decided that LTSC wasn't forever, and certainly not the 10 years of old (unless one was using the IoT version.) Or upgrade, knowing that support for this Windows 10 LTSC will end in 2026."
The third option. Install Windows Server 2022 and enjoy the Final Edition of Windows 10, with patches until 2032...
I was as naïve as you, once, and then I saw the light: Smart TVs are bringing the price of TVs way down, due to the data they can collect and sell on you.
It's crazy how cheap an enormous, fragile and complex object is - and it came from around the world to get to you. Smart TV functions have a hand in that.
Simply never cable the thing up to the network or enable the wifi, and now have a not-so-smart TV, for less than a monitor of that size would cost you. It's definitely NOT the hill to die on.
You might even find yourself thinking a couple of the functions are OK - for example mirroring from a smartphone (quite nice to show a photo quickly up on the telly), and want to re-enable the networking on the device. If you do that, then, like me, you can just block every last bit of traffic at your firewall, so it can only chat internally.
Et voilà, a device that's working for you, and isn't even able to spy on you.
I see what you're trying to say, but that's not the real world. I know some people would be happy to even to run Core 2, but I think they're a bit on the old side, I personally would say Sandy Bridge (2nd gen, as Intel calls it) quads and newer are perfectly acceptable for day to day use
The win+arrow window snapping was brought in with 7, so that's one more off the list. Win+shift+arrow even moves between screens.
Taskbar on all screens can be a useful one, I'll grant you that, although there were 3rd party applications to achieve that.
"If we just use them to bicker about Brexit, we’ll drown out the real lessons in the noise."
Yup, exactly. It's a problem that's been coming for some time. Farming and logistics are two utterly critical sectors that have been squeezed and squeezed.
Another huge issue is the fact young people's heads are filled with all kinds of fantasises, they've been sold lies, that they can be anything they want - who would then choose to work long hours for low pay, and probably endure health problems because of it?
The first is indeed basically done.
The second is such a no-brainer, that's it's utterly absurd that we've landed in a situation where there are "smartphone apps" and other crap for each charger type. It should basically be outlawed. Debit card scan, nothing more.
However, it brings me on to a point that's worrying - the cost of electricity at the chargers. We need to be very careful that we don't overcharge for electricity.
You're getting a lot of downvotes, but I think people really have forgotten how quick XP is. The launch version was of course utterly blazing, windows 2000 like, then after SP2 it got bogged down a bit on machines close to the system requirements, SP3 only made that worse - but on any vaguely capable hardware, even with SP3, it's very, very, very lightweight, and just isn't doing a bunch of background crap at idle.
I can see why you'd want to run it if you have a use case and are fully aware of its security shortcomings.
