Who loves Windows 10?

Sunday, March 13th, 2016
Oih vay, my without my consent Mircosoft upgrade my PC to Windows 10 today.
I can see it should be a better system except for one minor detail, I’m getting some bizarre results.
Thus if I can’t communicate/don’t reply, feel free to add to my curses aimed at Microsoft…
Like the man, yesterday I saw upon the stair who waznt there, after a reboot it’s only slightly improved, like the man upon the stair, he waznt there again today I wish to goodness he would go away.
I’ll phone the oracles at SPC tomorrow who will probably say “What have you buggered up now?”, tell me I don’t get along with hi tech then having established the pecking list, tell me how to sort it.
