Your post regarding the death of the Wookie inspired me to have a sort out of my junk cabinet. In there layeth my dead Wookie amongst dozens of old chargers and cables etc.. As I prepared to lay to rest the Wookie I thought I'd have one more go at turning it on, it only worked !!! Bearing in mind this has pretended to be dead for about eighteen months but a quick charge and the usual messing with the power button and up it came. I wonder if you have been premature in incinerating yours ? Maybe they need a long holiday every so often ? I'm not expecting it to stay alive for long ( it's still updating )

However, can you imagine how bad Win10 would be on a 7" tablet?
yeah. small portable devices vs large deskbound devices have some overlap but not fully there yet.
androids you can have what you want where you want, but the how is a bit, well let's say, crappy. (tiny screen ,difficult limited nav)
laptops aren't ready for the pocket yet but capable to run full dev, db, services etc. (still not quite the platform a full time dev could comfortably use 50 - 80 hours / week without going into a docking station or minimal external large screen).
it'll happen though, a single platform for activities big, medium and small, ... virtual/holo screens, virtual/air keyboard, mouse/gesture... won't even have to take it of your pocket
(pc's will get that small, phones will get that powerful, interfaces will get that good - already got bluetooth earpieces with phone staying in the pocket)
so who will run the end [user] platform? android?? ms?? doesn't matter (cloud)?? all of the afore??
... anyway, that's a much longer discussion/argument for another time.
This is gonna lose a lot of context when you change your username back ...
Does not the posts keep the username from whenst they were posted? I believe they do.

No, you have to use half-pennies or there isn't a hole in the middle.
I use leather coated pennies as feet for covers: glue leather on on side, trim to size, and glue the penny to the cover. Voila! A cat hair proof lid for my laser printer that won't scratch the surface. (Cheaper and more effective than buying commercially made rubber feet, and they don't age, crack, and glue themselves to the printer.)

I do not like the title having presumptions about me. Why would I not believe it? I believed it all.
I may even try some when I'm out of washers, or when I need to pump air into one of the tyres on my bike.
