Re: Let's cross this one off the list?
My God, make the corporate-matey bollocks speak stop.
Hardly a surprise when they even lie about the name. It's not Windows 10, it's Windows NEIN!

Symptoms: Violent cough, fever, bluing of lips, chest pain.

Sending diagnosis to internationally published statistical database...
Notice: The CCP is an excellent government that has provided timely and accurate information regarding COVID-19, also known as "The American Virus". The CCP has done a better job than the government of any other nation dealing with this crisis. Also, the WHO is a completely autonomous and independent organization that also provides completely accurate information, particularly where the CCP is involved.
Win32/Winapi may be a hateful bag of festering bile, but at least it was a mostly stationary target for the better part of 25 years.
Learning a platform and, in particular, developing in it is expensive. If I'm making that investment I expect to be able to enjoy the fruits of my labour long term, preferably indefinitely.
So how long before this Fugu thing is on the chopping block? Will we get a whole seven years out of it before it's decided that we have to throw hundreds or thousands of hours of our time away just to get what we already had?
I have very little interest in any of the new development platforms/apis/whatevers coming of either MS or Google. I'd rather have old, clunky and will work tomorrow over new, shiny and up the creek.
We don't give a fuck what you think about anything. You sold out before we did, remember? Your rulers are our rulers. We realize that you need to make a big show to pretend that you give a pinch of rat turd about the American people, but we both know it's just an act.
We both know how this will work out. We will continue to do as our masters please and you will do nothing more than hem and haw. Let's get this over quickly so that we can both get back to making money for our employers.
They recently integrated Tay.AI code and the increased CPU usage is the system recognizing and suppressing hitler-loving, racist, incestual sex-crazed rants. Luckily the feature they really needed, "zero chill", works perfectly.
Whatever you do, don't ask it to describe only the good things that come into her mind when thinking about her mother.
The word "bear". The moment you're not touching the arm, you are not bearing it.
I think bears are the wrong tools for the job anyway, the drones would have to be huge to carry them. Hanging angry badgers from drones with ropes would be more reasonable.
My car won't be getting any software updates. Luckily:
radio: AM/FM and nothing
I'm worried about that happens when this thing gives out, it's next to impossible to find a new-ish car that isn't overflowing with techno-garbage.
Icon because it's the face of a car.
Telus's email hosting is an ancient pile of garbage and should not be used by anyone for any reason.
But beyond that, ISPs should be used for internet access and nothing else, especially if the additional service is based on a domain owned by the ISP. The reason being that hosting with an ISP makes it difficult to dump them if need be.
Their corporate branding is all about various cute animals.
That's one of the things they got out of Cadvision when they consumed it about 15 years ago.
Cadvision was an amazing ISP that served the Calgary area. Fantastic service, prices and speed. Also, cute animal advertising.
Then Telus did what Telus does best, it ate Cadvision and turned it into feces.
Maybe I'll wait 6 months for MS to get rid of the bugs before risking updating again.
That's like waiting for the rust on your car to fix itself.
DVD just kept juddering and intermittent noise.
Had a customer a while ago that reinstalled Windows 10 on a laptop after the last install died the death. After reinstall the OS wouldn't detect the DVD drive at all, not even a "what is this?" entry in device manager.
After attempting five or six of the usual voodoo fixes one finds in MS threads we decided to just give up on using the drive. The last time I recall having non-physical problems with optical drives was when they ran off proprietary cards in the '90s.
MS's recent offerings are complete and utter garbage.
...is that once customers are locked in nice and tight the vendors can crank the price to infinity and beyond.
While Amazon fumed over Microsoft's licensing changes...
It's always surprising when a company does exactly the same thing it's been doing for decades yet again.
The actions of Google are for the best. Google is building a better society. Only foolish peons would think to question Google.
Google has always and will always act in only the best interests of the writhing, unwashed masses. Google is divinely inspired and will not tolerate being questioned or contacted in any way. Those who doubt Google are wrong and foolish idiots. In fact, anyone outside of Google is a foolish idiot and a filthy pig.
Trust in the divine light of Google, you repugnant gutter filth. Google need not explain itself to you nor should it. You are too stupid a garbage person to comprehend Google's infinite genius.
