I have always somewhat respected and admired the cleverness and resourcefullness of my cousin Bob.
Once we had the misfortune to be in a bank when it was being held up. The robbers demanded that we all empty our pockets and hand over our cash and jewelry. Bob turned to me and said "uh by the way, here's that $20 that I owe you."
A few years back, the Beeb showed a Horizon documentary about kids with progeria. An awful condition for sure. Remembering it now it puts all our other problems into perspective. Sam might have been one of them featured in the program.
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
The cool thing is that 6 of the 9 winners were CodeProject member entries, including the Grand PrizeScribblify[^].
Foremost, Congrats to CodeProject on such the achievement. That's awesome!
Thing is, though, Scribblify, an already an available/commercial product.
As I read the contest, it seems to be geared toward new & innovative products, and not already-available products merely adapted to the Lenovo All-in-One.
Or am I missing something here?
(And, no, I'm not a sore loser that my concept to present delicious dog treats coupled with a scent-production apparatus to entice dogs to lick the screen and cause the treats to float off into space didn't win; for I didn't even enter such.)

That's a shame as such an idea would be the canine's testes.
What a waste of a morning! A customer called early and mentioned that they could not reply to an email I had sent yesterday. It was trying to send to an email account that I closed over a month ago...but that wasn't the account that I sent it from...WTE? I went to my Sent Items and sure enough, they show with the old email address, not the outlook.com account that it clearly showed when the email was being composed. I checked all the account settings and all seemed to be correct. An hour and half a dozen test emails later, it appears that Outlook was using the old alias for my Microsoft account, not the new and correct one which had been set as the Primary over two months ago! I deleted the old alias and now it works. Thanks MS for changing the 'from' address for me! What was I thinking?
The first time I tried to set up outlook (older version) I found out to late that the default setting (buried real deep) was to delete all mail from the server. At the time there was not a way to recover them.
