Not sure if this is related to the Win 10 issues but since Tuesday have received 72 updates. Since GWX control panel installed before those updates, I'm now getting the security updates failing while all others installed.

Like Cliff, I keep all data on a seperate drive, should M$ bypass GWX CP next February & install 10 on my computer without my authorisation, it will be Mint on all my machines.

Oops another failure...

...long standing school & hospital buildings transformed into "luxury apartments"...

Is the problem Washington?
When asked if they trust the government, 89% of Republicans and 72% of Democrats say "only sometimes" or "never",

Mostly a very real understanding of any power.

Americans don't trust The Left, The Right, The Republicans, the Democrats, The International Capitalists.

When any of the above say Trust Us.

Americans say BULL SH..!!!!

Yes... Americans do understand.

I'd like to known the percentage of Americans that hold the same view as you.

If it it is high enough, it will make me wonder: - WHY the hell aren't you doing something about it instead of sitting behind a keyboard

I think it's time for this fool to be dismissed as Health Secretary.

Top stroke doctors accuse Hunt of manipulation

I was admitted during a weekday but spent all week in. Saw the same doctors & nurses on duty as I did during the week.

Think DC needs one of his dyno rods for his health secretary.

I'm quoting my own post...."just my famous irony" at play here, or am I really that stupid in thinking politicians really know what they're doing?

Hunt "informing the UK that he is a top medical practioner"

Too late for Dyno Rod.

I always said this would be the way ahead, but if "Call Me Dave" has his wicked way, we'll be stuck in the EU which has only the one aim Ein volk, ein reich ein fuhrer & that means one currency as well...

Welsh banknotes for equal status :-)

...So what's the point as we'll have the Euro!

It's about time those sitting on their ivory chairs wake up & realise that the citizens are not that dumb after all...

Not to take anything away from the thread but it has highlighted one important fact - Airline staff.

Not quite sure of the year, but I believe it was within the last 3. Several British Airways staff were prosecuted for divulging personal details to their cronies who were burgling the properties of those going on holiday.

The next step would have been what has occured in Egypt.

One can only go so far with security!

And for me, I'd rather see if I can find ways to keep people around if they're willing or able to stay.
