Glad you liked it. I actually made that up myself last night, while my (real) missus was at work. I couldn't wait till she got home so I could tell someone. I said "I made up a joke tonight do you want to hear it" she replied "No please don't"
Be careful, such decisions can blow up in your face...
And on a more serious note, there's a pretty nice movie about a blow-up doll come to life: Air Doll (2009) - IMDb[^].
As I understood it did quite well on many movie festivals and won numerous prizes.
Awesome soundtrack as well (very soothing) by World's End Girlfriend[^].
Last week I posted[^] about installing Win 10 on my Dell laptop.
Someone responded that after a few days it sort of figures itself out and starts to work. Well I'm sort of seeing this.
There are still times where it won't boot/reboot, then it will, then it won't... Sometimes it won't wake up when it sleeps... sometimes it does.
This is all new from last week's install when after powering up NOTHING would happen. I guess I should be grateful for progress.
On a side note.. My whole reason for "upgrading" was to test a new app I'm working on. I'm building a service with SignalR and a WPF client. The client runs on the Win 10 laptop with no issues so far. That might not seem like a big deal, but given the problems I've had with it so far, I'm cautiously optomistic.
I've had nothing but smooth sailing with Windows 10 until last week when a mate's old, old Toshiba laptop decided it no longer spoke internet. The TCP protocol was, for some reason, gone (or corrupted) and so no more interwebz. I spent 2 days trying to get it sorted and then just gave up and reinstalled Win7. Voila - perfect from the start.
Except trying to connect Office 2016 to a personal GMail would not work for love or money. Petty children squabbling, those two.
