Looks like it's time to close the last thread. Just a few posts too big.
Here is the new home for interesting news that just does not deserve it's own thread.
As the name implies. If you think it's worth sharing but just don't know where it should go... Stick it here.
Shall as I add a rule, no Vic bashing. Oh and Vic try to keep your personal news on your own thread.

I would have thought it might be better as; "Vic if you post here, it can be bashed." or in other words "Vic if you don't want it bashed, keep it in your own thread."

Interesting read. That day that IBM brings back OS/2 might give M$ a headache.

We use it because we have to as the best of a worst job, not because we want to.

86-year-old woman charged in bank robbery
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WTXF) - Police say an 86-year-old woman has been charged in connection with a bank robbery in West Philadelphia.

Emily Coakley is charged with aggravated assault, robbery, VUFA, terroristic threats and related offenses, according to police. She was released on her own recognizance.

...Sources say the woman came to the bank on Monday to make a withdrawal. When she got home she thought the bank had shorted her $400. She returned to the bank Tuesday afternoon and demanded the rest of her money. Her family showed up while she was being held at the bank and tried to console her. Bank customers weren't so forgiving.

The Substitute Phone is designed to help smartphone addicts cope in their absence

Satisfy your cravings for swiping and scrolling
Schillinger designed five facsimile phones, made of black polyoxymethylene plastic with stone beads embedded in the surface, which allows a user to replicate familiar actions, such as scrolling, pinching, or swiping. The goal is that it could be used as a coping mechanism for someone trying to check their phone less.

The Heir got hitched, the spare might as well, We've had this at the top of the News lists for weeks now, so the concentration factor is waning a bit.

Harry is at the lower end of the Senior Royals pecking order, and will be lower next year after Williams 3rd child is born. Obviously it matters more to UK people than Americans, but it simply isn't worth a Bank Holiday. Next extra one will likely be when either the Queen dies, or Charlie boys coronation. Even then I expect the Queens will be declared a day of official mourning.

Coronations are like buses, none for many years then two come at once!
