I really feel sorry for you! But I have to disagree with your topic, it is not the end of the world as we know it. It's only the end of the wonderful flavor of good coffee floating in the air, the sensational taste of a hot and strong coffee, the incredible experience of caffeine rushing through your body.. Oh, well. You are right, it really is the end.
(Just in case somebody might be thinking that I'm a coffee addict: I'm not. Really. )
I didn't realise I was going through it so quickly and two weeks ago realised I was into the last bag. A kilo normally lasts me 5-6 weeks and I thought I'd have enough until well into next week so all would be fine until the next load arrives. Unfortunately not.

Regular readers will know the trials and tribulations of my house and its leak. It has been a right pain in the arse, and should be nearing completion, but I don't want to complain about that as obviously some on here have real reason to complain about water and houses at the moment.
On to the point, I live in a small house, in June (I think) we had a new living room carpet. Obviously to have this done everything had to be removed from the room, for the first time in the 10 years we have lived there. This was no small operation and involved a phenomenal amount of crap. Much of which was thrown, other stuff consigned to the garage or loft.
After the new carpet was fitted we rejoiced in the new found space and lack of clutter.
Today we are having another new carpet fitted, so last night and this morning before work I removed everything from the room and removed the old new carpet.
My word but there was a massive amount of shite worked its way back into that room.

The latest non-dev release has the options to "Relaunch in Windows8 mode" and "Relaunch in desktop mode".
I have to wonder though, how much more bloat can they shove into the browser becomes things become severely broken. After all, pre 23 appeared to work fine in both modes, Starting from the tiles opened in Win8 mode, starting from a desktop shortcut or taskbar shortcut opened in desktop mode.
Was this a change for the sake of change, or are there other benefits to this change that I'm overlooking?
You completely missed Dave's point. He wasn't debating Windows 8. He was asking why they now had two modes that don't seem to offer anything over what was there before. Like Dave, I use Chrome on Windows 8 and it works perfectly, so why have they decided to offer these options which don't seem to make any difference whatsoever?

i said desktop mode offers things metro doesn't offer right now. maybe it's issues with flash, maybe plugins in general or something else they are doing, but with desktop they have more resources than they have on (what it's called now? Modern?)
i'm not sure of what resources they're using, i'm no specialist, and after the update, i think i'm sticking with IE10. it's fast and i've a emotional attachment to IE, never liked when in 7 i was forced into chrome and firefox due to IE speed and flash bugs.
and i had enough of chrome own bugs, i wan't my old friends back, the IE bugs
I'm brazilian and english (well, human languages in general) aren't my best skill, so, sorry by my english. (if you want we can speak in C# or VB.Net =p)
And I was just about to complain that when I ran chrome yesterday after a fresh download/install on win2012 from the desktop with a 27 inch monitor that it went to Metro mode and took over the whole screen.
Edit: Hmm. Maybe that was some momentary glitch as its working now..
For all his billions he cannot stop his hair from falling out.
What a crap hair cut. He would be better off shaving it bald and looking cool than that travesty.
He could even afford a half decent wig or some implants.
Still, if he wants to look like a prick that is up to him.
He has a point though. You would think that having a vote where every vote counts would be more in the American tradition of democracy.
An absolute majority in the popular vote would be fairer and mean that there would be fewer anomalies.

An absolute majority for The Donald's sake would still mean Obama won. No doubt he'd moan about an absolute majority leaving people unrepresented and how the electoral college system safeguards against this.
We're fine ones to talk about every vote counting anyway. The weighting of UK votes is a bit like this:
Socialism (play /ˈsoʊʃəlɪzəm/) is an economic system characterised by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy, and a political philosophy advocating such a system. "Social ownership" may refer to cooperative enterprises, common ownership, state ownership, or citizen ownership of equity.
There was a slight irony in my statement. I was just picking up on the American right's tendency to label Obama as a "degenerate atheist and socialist", despite the fact that his policies are closer to the Republican party of the 80s than today's GOP.
