    Generally speaking, there is nothing wrong with Windows 10 for everyday use. It's UX is more like 7 than 8. After a while there is no good reason to not upgrade beyond either fear and/or...

    Nothing to do with COVID, Jed. ^^^



    I think everyone who thinks like this in the U.S. envies seeing this sentiment in action. Thank you for posting.

    I am still holding out hope for the next 10 days or so, but they were a lot further apart than I thought they would be at this stage, so you may be right...unfortunately.

    Thank you for the kind words. As Guy had mentioned, the dualisms were indeed more of a continuum than opposites. Everyone has aspects to their life that would qualify as “selfish” or “self absorbed”,...

    One explanation is that the post that was deleted was in response to a group of posts that got removed and it’s sort of like collateral damage. It’s okay to PM the mods if you have questions, but...

    Let this be a reminder, and a very timely one if you’re following Twitter, that this forum is privately owned (not by me) and operated, and those operating the site can allow and remove discussion at...

    I have become a bigger fan of rye myself as well. Bourbon is fine, but I'm not in any hurry to expand my bourbon experience. Bulleit Rye was the first rye I purchased for the fact that it had the 95%...

    ^^^ If you want to keep it simple, I essentially said the same thing in my last paragraph.
  10. Sticky: You won't offend me. Yes, the problems we have in...

    You won't offend me. Yes, the problems we have in the USA are much larger than the administration. There is a deep culture war here. Everything in our lives has become political and has deepened that...

    We are in the same business and I do this all the time with clients, so I totally relate to what you are saying. And “seeing things the way other audiences see them” was a key component of my posts...

    I totally get your point. But it's been done to death. It doesn't have to be the center of the story. When CNN (for example) frames the discussion in terms of Trump, that unfortunately turns off...

    If one life can be saved by it's use, but it made several lives worse (which is what a huge study out just concluded), then I'm not for that. I don't think you are either, but I just wanted to state...

    Agreed. This is one of the problems with media in today's climate. What may theoretically seem "fair" often gives too much weight to the misinformation out there. But since so many in influential...

    It's a shame for sure. I am most distressed at how Americans who rallied together after 9/11 are so bitterly divided now, where everything becomes political.

    FWIW, it has ALWAYS been this way. It only seems worse now because there didn't used to be 24/7 news. But the notion that "news is always negative" is as old as the first stone tablet.
