So I met this pretty girl at a bar last night.
Talked a bit and when the bar closed she asked if I came to her place.
Of course I went with her and things were looking good.
So when we came at her place she went into the kitchen for some drinks and after a minute or so she said "Hey, can you help me for a sec? There's this jar I can't open."
I said "No problem, just download and install Java."
Dude, you've been here an hour and yours was the first non-code post I've seen in a very long time that was formatted in a code block...a post that was not even your own! Well, what have you to say for yourself?
Or maybe you're just trying to annoy us more, hmm?
I think it is a result of pasting their questions rather than typing them, and then they don't understand the "paste" dialog they get. It's a good indicator, if you lack the computer skills to past text into a textbox unformatted then how can you possible figure out the solution to your issues?
Why they are pasting is the next issue....obvious many are just pasting their homework straight from the source, but I think others are pasting their question from somewhere else they have asked like SO etc.
So I am now running the pre-release evaluation version of the 2017 Fall Creator's Update of Windows 10, and everything seems just dandy (so far). I notice some nice features in Edge, like the ability to "set aside" tabs for quick recall later. I did not see this in the old Edge.
Are there any other brave souls out there in the same boat?
I've just gotten through the update to the first CU. It rendered my laptop useless for almost an hour and a half. As a warning to others, if given the choice do not install this update if you are in a hurry!...and now I see another restart is required.
Honestly, I don't really see anything new with this update that interests me. I just want to get my work done.
I noticed three issues with the very latest release:
1) There is an update for SiverLight that keeps re-installing again and again - ad-infinitum. It never succeeds.
2) When you plug in an external USB drive, there is no pop-up Windows Explorer window.
3) When you try to use the snip tool, it takes an awful long time to open, like about 5 seconds.
The issues have been reported to MS. I have gone back to the main Windows 10 version. I will be patient and wait till the next release is more stable.
You seem to be new on CP, so I will give you a bit of advice: Do not plagiarize others! Your message is a word-for-word copy of an earlier post that I made: The Lounge[^]
You will not last long copying the words of others.
Has anyone noticed that Shutdown is taking longer in this release
Can't say yet, every shut down since has involved another update to the update. One thing I don't like is the Edge tab in IE...because they really, really, really want me to use it for some reason. I wonder how long before they kill IE?
There is a vast array of information out there, of which specific knowledge of, for someone that is not specifically involved in that area doesn't mean much.
After the impact here is only if they decide to buy a brown cow so they can have their own chocolate milk. Much worse in that case is the thinking that raw milk from the cow should even be drunk in the first place. How many people believe that in the US? Certainly enough that people die from it every year. That has a real impact.
How many adults are financially illiterate? How many think that the President can fire a member of congress? How many seek to cure real illnesses using CAM alone?
And for that matter, I read recently that every single major cancer hospital in the US has a CAM clinic in the hospital.
So no, where chocolate milk comes from isn't a real pressing issue. Doesn't even rise above the noise level.
And the thinking is perpetuated this way:
"I don't want to think about where my chicken breast came from; I simply get it at the supermarket. I will actually choose to not acknowledge that it was once a living animal that was raised to be food, was slaughtered and processed."
Then, the next step, "When I have children, I will teach them what I choose to believe, therefore they be never hear that a chicken breast came from a once living animal,"
Yes, I have worked with people that behaved this way.
Growing up on a farm, I learned first hand the farm-to-table cycle... it should be taught in school; every school should have an incubator to hatch out a round of chicks, ducklings, something... every year.
