That's incorrect. The EULA is essentially unchanged from previous iterations: If there were any concerns that Windows 10 would bring with it a whole new set of terms and conditions with an updated End-User License Agreement (EULA), we needn’t have worried, as it’s about the same as it was with previous generations of the OS. There are a couple of tweaks that paint it as more of a software as a service (SAAS), but that’s more to do with the delivery method of the upgrade than anything else. If you don't have an internet connection, you can upgrade from a disk - but they can't send updates to you. As well, if you upgrade and decide that you don't like 10, you can downgrade back to your original 7 or 8.1 system settings.
It happens at least a couple of times a year. This was just the most recent episode.

What a hoot!

Yep, since they sold it to you, they have to be at fault. You should have an MRI (at $1000) to confirm extent of head injury.

As ZZ mentioned, there's the Mob, and the governnment. Pretty much identical.
And doubtless provided greater value to us than the bureaucrats will.

Good ideas - bit I'm sure that the folks being paid by Greenpeas would insist that the "activists" are simply volunteers with a heartfelt love for Gaia.

They only took out two traffic lanes and a turn lane so they could run light rail down the middle of the avenue; what could possibly go wrong?

Note: had a minor troll infestation here, so inadvertently deleted a few other comments during the cleaning process. Apologies for the confusion.

ZZ said: I don't see what's so "objectionable" about the bathroom standards there. It's certainly up to cultural norms, which any good liberal would say are every bit a good a ours.

OG said: We need a fifty dollar an hour minimum wage. We need to stop allowing any further development. I'm not sure how to handle repairs. But until I think that through, no more repair work to existing capital, buildings, property or equipment. Let's drive our economy through the floor. Why wait for the next bubble? .

Truly, time is of the essence.

Yep, initial reviews are generally positive. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Good point; who are we to judge?

I agree, ZZ - that jerk just kills for "fun". OTOH, unlike "Planned Parenthood", he doesn't part them out for profit.

The troll changed its IP address, apparently assuming that it might go unnoticed. That didn't work; it remains one of two inDUHviduals banned from this site.

The intelligence of your renter should never be overestimated.

Now that you mention it, Sam, yeah; I think that was one of those hairball "Greenpeace" things, too. The attitude of the cops and USCG has been pretty amusing: they'll have to get tired of hanging in the air sometime, and when they do - federal charges will likely await.

He's one of the rare types who doesn't arrive via clown car, here.

And they're messy birds, too....
That's pretty interesting, Sam - something I'd not heard about. OTOH, I've never had occasion to do any research into those particular parasites (thankfully).

You may be onto something. And I was reading earlier where some Sanford divers found roughly $1 million in pirate gold, but Lamont would probably blow it all on one of his hair-brained schemes, the big dummy.

Yes, those .ini files were a work of(bad) art!
