Sudden Sun Death Syndrome (SSDS) is a very real concern which we should be raising awareness of. 156 billion suns die every year before they're just 1 billion years old.
While the military are doing their part, it simply isn't enough to make the amount of nukes needed to save those poor stars. - TWI2T3D (Reddit)
First one looks like something out of Superman -- the world engine trying to defend itself against Superman.
Second one looks like it was made with a spirograph.

I recently upgraded to Corel Paintshop Pro X9 (I got a very good deal on the full version, and that means I can transfer my X8 version onto the WookieTab and dump GIMP, which I dislike immensely).
And it comes with video tutorials, so I thought "OK, i've got half an hour, let's learn something".
And it kicks up IE 11.
Not Chrome - my default browser.
Not Edge - installed as standard on Win10 (and used to download Chrome)
Not even Firefox - installed, and used when Chrome has in the past failed and needs to be re-downloaded.
Nope. They specifically fire up IE 11, which I didn't even know was installed on this machine!
Corel, I don't care if you love IE. I don't care if you worship the pixels it displays on. I get annoyed enough when MS insists on using the execrable Edge - but IE? For Elephants sake...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
The last time you posted your Corel agony I suggested the Gimp. Even if the Gimp has been nice to me I will not repeat that. You seem to be doing a lot of image handling. Maybe the pain of paying Adobe an elephanting disproportionate lump would in the long run be less than the constant pain of Corel's quirks. But maybe Photoshop has already made you throw up. [I just mistyped that: "mad you" ]
Gimp's interface is idiotic at best. We use it since
a) we don't do image manipulation. We need sometimes to analyze an image applying filters, looking color values pixer per pixel (sometimes magnification reaches 3200%), histograms and simple editing as adding a blot;
b) paying for software? Who do you think we are, a software company? Pah! We don't even open up Internet to our developers!
