I lived in Canada for two years and the “eh” has worked its way deep into my vocabulary. It’s a bit annoying.

Laptop screen problem

Yeah, the screen is a goner but the good news is that you’ll be fine using an external screen for an extended period of time. Not really a big issue aside from losing the portability option.

You just earned a raise. Congratulations. You will see the adjustment on your paycheck starting next Monday.

That should be after next next Tuesday.

Windows Phone is incredible. Best phone I’ve ever owned. I help my dad with his Android phone every now and then and it’s such a frustrating locked down piece of garbage OS.

They’re pushing some new updates for Windows (10 and 10 Mobile) lately that have all been pretty great in my opinion.

Yeah, just don’t install that recently released build 16212 update from MS…

(as ever with The Reg articles - the comments section is always worth a read 😃)

and that’s not to say that Windows phones aren’t decent - the more choices we as consumers have, the better 😃

Thanks for the heads up!

And yeah, competition is always good.

I can’t even.

I’m not too shocked considering gun sales are pretty speculative based on the party of the President. Gun folks lose their minds every time anything happens with a Democrat President because they assume there will be ten million new rights-infringing knee-jerk reaction laws in the wake of any sort of gun violence that goes on. With Trump they assume they’re safe because he’s a Republican (which is funny because I’m sure Obama has more range time than Trump does).

After I got into computers and realized I didn’t have to use IE anymore I switched to Firefox and used that for years until Chrome came out and I switched to that, and then Google (unsurprisingly) revealed itself to be an evil corporation so I went back to Firefox.

I dabbled in Opera and other modern browsers, but they were all shitty.

I’ve gotten into using Comodo IceDragon recently because it’s Firefox but even more locked down. I’m also big on Ghostery and NoScript and DuckDuckGo and all that.

I miss Netscape Navagator.

I dunno what issues Alderaan is having with Firefox because it runs like a dream for me.
