Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

Simple, functional programs are not what M$ want us to have. They took away the simple but oh-so-effective retouch tools in photo-viewer. then they hid Photo-viewer and Media player, because they don't harvest enough data from us or try and share our images on line.

I've found the solution - I no longer give a shit who knows anything about my online existence. If I want something private, I keep it in my head or use paper.

If Google can make money by making the adverts I ignore more relevant to my life, great for them, I won't start paying attention!

So I thought, but they offered me the Feynmann Lectures for free... and I clicked.
