How should I know how long it lasts?

Anyway, if it is long why waste your battery life? If it is short why are you spending time during it checking your watch?

It comes from the Hellenistic Ptolemaic era when the Greeks were running the country, but that's not going to stop the movie makers or anyone else from going nuts about it.

I mean, after all, if they were true to life the movie trailer would be "Beware the wrath of Hellenized Egypt! We have scrolls without vowels or spaces, linguists beware!! Also be sure to visit our shops, we have the best assortment of trade goods from all over the eastern Mediterranean at the best prices available! Would you like to visit our world famous library? I have a cousin who would be happy to guide you for a fee..."

Life with an older laptop at the coffeeshop is much improved now that I've disabled Dropbox, Windows Compatibility Telemetry, and Office Click to Run...

I'd never thought I'd considered Adobe "well behaved" until I ran into those three piggies.

Hey Hellenization did weird things to Egypt. I saw a Hellenized statue of Anubis once and it was disturbing.

Maybe teenagers with altitude. I keep seeing this thread and thinking of that song, who is it by? On the catwalk, She's on the catwalk. It wasn't a particularly good song but this thread keeps coming up.

Yay! Twice in a row. These guys can't be serious but excellent. Thanks Cody.

I thought for about a half a second of posting a video of me swinging my 60 year old belly but NO. No one wants to see that!

Just wait until your Win10 decides to randomly open up Mail, Mail and Calendar Accounts, Microsoft Store and Microsoft.Photos.exe all on its own. Then a while later restarts them despite you having shut them down through task manager.


Oh also, fyi, Dropbox has a tendency to randomly run even when it has been disabled.


I'm also not holding my breath for an answer from Microsoft as to why Office Click to Run needs to even be running when I do not even have Office installed on my laptop.
