Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time

The thing is I don't like Quantum Mechanics either. Not because I'm jealous, but because I don't want to call an Electron (or other similar particles) a wave, just because I can't explain the fact how it goes from the both slits at the same time. That's totally wrong!
Newton never knew some facts, like what is gravity or how it works. But he was better than these guys because he clearly said, "No, I don't know it yet!". They, are coming up with bizarre ideas. Quantum Tunnelling, Quantum Entanglement... Quantum stupidity!

Just wasted half an hour trying to order the first thing I came across on the IKEA site because I couldn't find the submit order button. Turns out the site's optimised for IE meaning that in Chrome the stupid button falls outside the stupid frame and can't be reached! Of course there's no contact info for the webmaster (do we still call them that) so no doubt it'll remain that way for the rest of time! I had to use Edge in the end ... I know ... I feel so icky!
Win 10, Chrome 64 (48.0.2564.109 m)
Went to Ikea UK site (and now I feel icky...)
Found an item, clicked "add to basket"
Clicked "View your shopping basket"
Entered a postcode (but not mine). Clicked "Calculate"
Swore. Put a space in the middle of the postcode. Clicked "Calculate"
Was told "Item(s)in your shopping cart are not available for purchase. Please review your cart or contact customer service."
Didn't press the "Begin Checkout" button, but could see it and it was clickable.
Basically, no problems. Except it was Ikea.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I promise faithfully that I have explored every other supplier I could think of but nobody else had anything suitable. Well that's not quite true there was one; but at a price that you could feed a thousand hamsters on for a year I gracefully declined!
Got into the office yesterday o find that MS had 'updated' my PC. I normally leave the office with all my apps still open (VS instances, SSMS, Jave EE, Outlook, Skype, Notepad++, Paint.Net, browsers...)
When I tried to unlock my PC, it just sat there frozen... it took me over half an hour to get it to respond. I finally got everything closed and the PC rebooted.
Then my wife texts me a pic of my home PC showing the Win 7 startup splash screen. She said it just sat there all day. After multiple attempts to cold boot, I finally had to do System Restore, twice, to a point 2 days ago.
Error log showed MS updated my PC in the middle of the night. the same with my office Pc.
My wife runs Win 7 Pro. She also had the update, but no issues after a normal restart. I run Win 10 Pro and also had a major update yesterday or the day before. No issues to report, but the computer did two automatic restarts before it started working normally again.
Get me coffee and no one gets hurt!
