    "Mummy, mummy, I made some code for Windows 10 that isn't terrible!"
    "That's very nice dear, I'll pop it on the fridge so everyone can see. But you do know people have been making things like this out of wood, cogs and boredom for thousands of years, right?"

    C'mon Microsoft, maybe stop your email software from scrolling like it's on meth and whisky. Then fix the text rendering in control panel so it doesn't look like someone typed it in Paint (circa 3.11) and then just enlarged it... in Paint.

    Oh and "dark mode"? That's just copycat rubbish and probably racist. My sat sav has been doing that for a decade or so.

    Grrrrrrrr.

    Even less so since I'm having to use my Mac after the last update broke my PC spectacularly AND removed the backup options I'd put in place to allow me to easily fix their Russian Roulette updates. Plus the missus's Dad is coming over for the weekend and so I've got loads to do and so can't spend hours fixing the damn thing.

    Speaking of things to do for the missus's Dad.... we've had a sticky fake turd stuck to the garage roof for many months (long story). Anyone know how to remove it?

    Heat gun or acetone? I'd probably start with the heat gun, depending on the material acetone might attack the roofing as well.
