Now I just feel like an ass for considering the alternative. And for looking at the screen notifications in the first place.

So long as you don't act on them rashly, the possibilities that you consider in your own mind are your own business and nobody else's.
And it would be unreasonable to expect you to consciously ignore something that's literally just popping up on a screen that's facing you. Observation alone is harmless and very hard to avoid altogether.

He's a urologist. So like. If it's not a dick or bladder... No dice.
But he works with bones, no?

Jesus fucking Christ what in the frickity frack is this Microsoft Edge garbage?!   

Every day I discover something new to loathe about it. I should have installed Opera by now but for some reason I feel like part of showing appreciation for this new laptop I've received should involve using its default browser. Goodness only knows. To be honest, Windows 10 in general is friggin' horrifying.
I thought I heard they were bringing the Start menu back?? So much for that.   
I'm kinda glad the bootleg Windows install on my old laptop never received a free "upgrade".

I'm... using win 10. At home, at work. There's a start menu. Functions more or less the same as the old start menu.

Win 10's actually been pretty painless, so far. No more frustrating than vista, mostly.

E: Can't help you with edge, though. What you expected from a renamed internet explorer I'm not quite sure :P

I'm forced to use win 10 at work and I'm far too salty about it to ignore this >:( >:( >:( >:(

The start menu is horrible and cluttered with useless (cr)apps and as for edge at the very least I would expect that they wouldn't try to push me to use it by making it the default reader for pdfs.


don't take this seriously :D

I guess it's slightly better than 8.1 was: https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2013/06/28/what-you-wish-for
But yeah it's still got a bunch of applets for some reason.  (The reason is they want to push their mobile crap, and they don't care that many/most people aren't interested)

Thankfully I'm able to stick with 7, at least for now heh.

I found out that "How to train your Dragon" was loosely based on a series of children/young adult novels.  It sounds VERY loosely based, as half the characters are entirely different.  Astrid is now "CamiCazi" (haha) and it features characters like Madguts the Murderous and Big-Boobied Bertha.  And Hiccup can speak the dragon language dragonese.   :o

Yeah, the books have audio versions as well. Toothless speaks. With a lisp, of course.

Is it worth reading/listening you think?  I'm been trying to force myself through Discworld and it just isn't doing it for me.

Really? Which parts of DW? They had several different readers over the years, and this is entirely presonal but I loved pretty much all of them. Tho few things beat reading the things yourself since you can reread a certain sentance fifteen times and laugh harder each time because fuck me did Pratchett have a way with words that I have never expirienced elsewhere (Gaiman came in the same ballpark on occasion but that was about it).

Well, uh... I don't really know what to say to that. They're different from the movies, certainly, not least of which because Toothless is the size of a large cat, rather than something that can be ridden.

But I have no idea what someone who doesn't like Discworld would like. They're certainly different from Pratchett's literary style, and from what I can recall the books are basically "young lad with sarcastic flying cat learns how to do things differently in a world of brick-headed Vikings". But it's been a while since I listened to one.

I'm only part way through the 2nd one in the Discworld series so far, which I've heard are the weaker ones.  I probably should have just started with the more popular ones maybe.  I think its mostly the writing style I'm not enjoying, it always does scene changes with no warning/context, and the editing is horrible with punctuation/spelling mistakes all over the place.
