How did I miss that phenomenon?
The only Ana Nova I remember, was an actress, the IMDb blurb on DuckDuckGo assures me starred in some health video involving colonic yoga.

Sir Humphrey: "This file contains the complete set of papers, except for a number of secret documents, a few others which are part of still active files, some correspondence lost in the floods of 1967..."
Jim Hacker: Was 1967 a particularly bad winter?
Sir Humphrey: No, a marvelous winter. We lost no end of embarrassing files
...IF you want cloud storage.
1TB OneDrive for you and 1TB each for 5 other family members.
I like DropBox' interface a lot more, but this price is damn hard to beat. And that's before adding in the Office pack for everyone, should they want it.
And with rclone, the Linux <-> OneDrive experience has been very nice for me too.
...I don't have an iPad, but when my son's Android tablet broke last year, some research revealed that the 2018 iPad was the best bang-for-the-€ gaming tablet around.
Apple's phones and, to a lesser extent, their OSX boxes are overpriced. Not so the non-pro iPad.
Surprisingly, to me anyway, I was able to actually open!!! the thing and fix it (so we still don't have an iPad), but not until I'd already done the research.
>>>Many years ago a woman named Gwen Jacobs fought all the way to the Supreme Court for the right to walk topless on Canadian streets during warm summer days.
She won, enshrining the principle that male and female nipples should be treated equally.<<<<
Truly, not all heroes wear capes.
...if IBM youngins are "more innovative and receptive to technology than baby boomers", it might have something to do with the IBM of yore, that your older minions persevered through, having had somewhat of a reputation for not exactly encouraging thinking outside the box, blue or otherwise.
You know, back when young-and-hip Microsoft (how times have changed) were having your lunch.
... as you would Netflix and Spotify: You’re only renting the stuff.
When buying apps on Google Play, I do so in the full knowledge they may (and some do) stop working at any time.
But the prices have to match.
That’s also why I only buy heavily discounted games for my son’s Xbox. Luckily, like me, he’s not into the latest multi-player FPS, so that’s never been an issue.
Similarly, PC games I only buy from GOG.com. They don’t have the latest AAA titles, but I can find what *I* want to play. And I don’t have time to fit in on-line multi-player anyway, so DRM-free single player (or LAN/off-line multi-player) titles fit my needs perfectly.
Funnily enough, when games are removed for sale from GOG, they’re still left in the libraries of those who bought them when GOG did have them for sale.
...quite frankly a bit ugly.
But, at the same time much more easily navigated than the current everything-must-be-flat-and-indistinguishable design language.
The "commits, branches, ..." bit needs to be tabs too, though.
Personally, my idea of peak pretty AND functional desktop GUI design was one of the KDE 3.x themes (can't remember the name).
>>>yet has very little actual functionality.<<<
Little functionality, you say?
But with Atom, your syntax highlighting theme can easily make parts of your source (e.g. TODO comments) gently fade between different background colours.
And all that essential functionality for only an installed size of 715MB!
So be it.
If they willfully break the GPL, better to sue if need be, and scare them and their likes off in future, IMHO.
Otherwise, what's the point of the GPL?
Commercial vendors expect money for their product.
Contributors to GPL projects have a right to expect reciprocity in the form of source code.
That's the deal.
Except BSD, perhaps, but they didn't choose that for whatever reason.
...of the Excel Abusers!
Surprising move, really, that they've found themselves to be able to make do with Google's much sparser feature set compared to MS Office.
But if the missing features are no big deal for them, and on-line sync and collaboration is important, I can understand it.
MS Office is MUCH more powerful, but every time on-line access is involved, it's slow as mollasses.
Google, OTOH, does the snappy web experience well.
Completely ignoring the issues with going cloudy, of course.
...about the Store thingy.
On the one hand, I recognise all the downsides everyone here has already mentioned, and agree with most of them.
On the other hand, running Debian (or a derivative), it's always been fantastically convenient to have almost every piece of software I need ready, pre-packaged and compatible in my distro's AppStore^W repositories.
OK, they're not completely equivalent. For one, Windows Store's apps are limited in ways DEB packages aren't.
But there are a lot of similarities too.
>>>You'd only notice that it is a woman doing the hugging if you notice the earrings.<<<
Considering the many earring-wearing males around, that buttons on her jacket are on the left would probably be a better indicator.
Anyhu, I'd forgotten I wanted to get my hands on that deliciously cheap Zero W for some LG^H^HBLE-tomfoolery.
Now, where's that credit card at?
Exactly! I can only upvote once (and I tried).
The only Windows Store apps I have are a few casual games (e.g. Lara Croft GO).
Mostly just out of curiosity to compare them against the Android versions.
How has Win10S been made to run on low-spec anyway? I couldn’t find any concrete info.
When Windows 10 slowed to a crawl on my Celeron box with a spinning rust drive, and I couldn’t re-install the old W8 (with Bing) again, I had to put Debian on it. Flies like ****.
And at least with Wine and DOSbox, that runs the few old Win32 and DOS games I still like.

...a humourectomy by any chance?
>>>Assuming you are British (for the sake of argument) what if I choose to trawl thru some of the odder local laws in Britain? If I find anything questionable, may I laugh my arse off at "You stupid Brits"?<<<
Yes. Yes, of course you can.
Friendly piss-taking like that, is^W should be a basic human right.
