I was floored when Finch, giving advice to a young programmer, says something about "if you want your program to be multithreaded, you have to use atomic variables." I mean, that's actually right! How often do you here techno-babble on a TV show that is correct?
And how many people watching had totally the wrong idea when he said "atomic", hahaha.
There was a spot the difference picture and it was pretty clear what main feature was different as it was against the skyline of a building so stood out quite clearly, I thought it might have been a diversion for some other more tricky tiny change between the two pictures.
...why don't they "play nice" with the desktop in Win10?
Try this: open Windows explorer, and browse to an image file.
Right click the file, and you get a context menu.
Click on "Send To" and select "Mail recipient"
Well, it depends. If you use Outlook, as I do - Office 2010 - then a new mail message appears with teh image set as an attachment, ready to go.
If you use the MS Mail app that comes with Windows 10...you get an error message that no mail program is installed, and explains what to do to fix it. Try and follow the instructions and you find that you have got a mail app installed and registered: "Mail".
Why is this a problem? Because I'm upgrading a friend's mother's lappie to Win 10, and guess how she used to do it on XP?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I tried to uninstall an app from the new Win10 Settings/System/Apps & Features page.
The app just would not install, no messages, no popups, no nothing. Switch to the real page in the control panel and 1st attempt gone......Spent ages as well looking up why this app wouldn't install or looking for any uninstall executable in its install folder etc. etc. Should have just gone to the control panel in the first place would save me some effort, and its better looking than all this crappy new dull forms.
