    I hate that my fellow federal employees decide to (wake up and) finally get some work done.......at 2:30pm, Friday. Never fails.

    You doubtless remember that old acronym, akin to TGIF - Thank Goodness Its Friday:
    So Happy Its Thursday

    (I won't share the acronym itself, as this is a G-rated forum)

    So much hate so little time, as a friend of mine says. I hate it when my friends called me a cradle robber for having a younger girlfriend who said, "I didn't know Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings." A different time, we were walking down by campus and going past a poster shop with a giant poster of Albert Einstein with the crazy hair, and she says, "Who's that?"

    Wait, what? He was?

    And who is that crazy guy?
    I think maybe Gene Simmons' dad?

    My mailboxes are being raped by almost any site/company for which I've ever registered an account with these stupid pre-pre-pre Black Friday and associated, arbitrarily named, "fire" sales clinger onners {clingers on} that dont seem to be much of any sort of sale at all.

    Where the #&*% does it end?
    Does this actually help the holiday shopping season, or just take away from the frenzy benefits (and entertainment value in crazy stories) of the original Black Friday? Starting it in July just seems a little too soon, imho.

    For the same reason that the verb to cleave means:
    To stick together.

    and

    To split apart.

    thus:

    Peanut butter cleaves to the roof of one's mouth.

    and

    One could cleave peanut butter from the roof of one's mouth with a suitably subtly wielded cleaver.

    I hate stuff like that...

    I HATE Windows 10. Microsoft has lost it's way, if it ever had it. I've tried it on multiple devices from laptops to workstations, older, newer, powerful, not so powerful, upgrades, clean installs, you name it. It's just awful. Every machine in my house is now back on Windows 7, and will remain until I have no other choice. Mac and Linux are just not an option for me.

    Been using W10 for years now. On all devices. Don't see why other folks don't want to use it.....it works great, functions well and I have yet to get locked up because of a virus. Complete opposite of my experience with W7.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    He's cleaving to it, in fact.

    Win10 is intrusive but it works OK.
    I do missWin7 a bit (heck, I miss XP. I liked XP Pro). I thought about staying with Win7, but figured I'd buy some time by going to 10.
