reminds me of the opening plot for many many movies.
After meeting the old acquaintance next comes:
"Remember we used to talk about doing X, well I was looking at that again and I can make it work, so lets get together and:
- do that world record never to be beaten bank robbery"
- replace the politicians with androids/fleshbots that we [alone] control"
- assemble a working time travel machine and "
- build the world ending bomb"
- create the perfect toilet seat."
OK, the last one is a stretch, and most plots end badly for at least one of the protagonists.
so all I'm saying is: be careful lest you be the one that doesn't make it out.

I moaned about Win 10 mucking my monitors up (go it sorted) now for the winge is 'Paint3D', not being very arty I always found Windows Paint to be useful quick doodles, now I have been forced to 10 we Paint3D which combines Paint with 3D! So you have to battle an interface that is odd just to save a bleedin' fault bitmap (which has to be a PNG) for some stupid reason it tries to save them as BMP's!
Why, the old worked fine!
Mary Jo Foley (long-time Windows journalist and one of the current hosts of the Windows Weekly podcast) is dead serious about MS not changing Notepad as that's the only tool she uses and she doesn't want it to get any sort of new "feature". It's become a recurring joke on the podcast.
But now it has new features - line nos in the footer. A star after the filename to show it has been changed and not saved. They may be minor (and actually useful albeit not original) but it shows that even Notepad is not sacrosanct.
