What's the largest image online? Probably something at NASA JPL. Just link your linked image there.

Forget the food processor and the cell-phone. I want another DC-3 to play with.
I'm really waiting for "X-ray + left-to-right transform + 3-d printer = new perfectly fitted limbs for amputees" to go mainstream. As a side note, I want a two more arms and that Chernobyl joke t-shirt from 30 years ago.
Your contract allows you to prevent libraries from purchasing your books? That's how they obtain their copies that they then loan out. If you wrote a book that could be read in under 2 hours, then theoretically, it could be read by 6 people per day per library copy. Think of all of the lost sales. After a year, that's 2190 lost sales, and that's only 1 copy at 1 library. There are over 4100 public libraries in the UK. You should write your MP about the €125706000 per year that's being stolen from you by your local councils. Then you can retire to Maudsley, Southwark, London.
You're correct, that's not actually a lot. Now if you add up all of the bugs in Windows 10 that have been fixed. That's a lot. Its also separate from the 'a lot' of bugs fixed in Server 2012 R2, and separately in Server 2016 and separately in Server 2019.
I bet Microsoft will still be fixing bugs in Windows when the sun dies.
I've had users do this at mulitple companies. I also found that if you have an assistant, its better all around if you have your assistant disable the port (and the 2nd port they move their dhcp server to, and the 3rd port,( it was a loong hallway)) while you walk down the hall to stop them from putting it back on the network on yet another port.
If you ditch the printer or get a different brand, remember to cancel your ink subscription. Also, make sure you change your shipping address and get them to acknoledge the change if you move house.
Shipping $0.10 worth of ink to you for a printer you don't have and billing you $2.15/month forever is a great money maker.
Do you know how long it takes to delete all of the autocorrect entries from the latest version? Long enough for me to curse every single one of the developers.
I, personally, disable spell checking and grammar checking. My computer is slow enough as it is, and when more than half of what I type is system names...
I also taught myself to touchtype by turning off the lights and back in the day, I could overflow my 1200baud modem. But even that wasn't fast compared to the programmer upstairs when I worked at a university. He received the first PC in the department, and only kept it for an hour or so because he could type faster, accurately, than the computer could process it, so he would type type type beeeeeeeep, curse, type type type type beeeeeeeeeep. 30 minutes of that and the old Wyse-50 was back on his desk and he was back to his normal 150+wpm.
The last paper I wrote in college in '93 was written in LaTex. Single spaced in a text file, it was just over 2 pages ... after printing it, it was just over three pages, which was the requirement of the class. I don't remember all of the tweaks (font, kerning, margins, etc) I used to make that paper longer, but I remember asking several document-specialist co-workers (since I was sysadmin at the time) for just such help.
