For those who may not click with the name, some of the world's greatest guitarists have referred to Malcolm Young as the greatest Rhythm Guitarist of all time.

As the co-founder of ACDC he'll be remembered for a very long time.

Having been an Official for MotoGP for 23 years someone decided I'd be suitable fodder to drive in the Riders' Parade last Sunday before the GrandPrix at Phillip Island [Australia]....

...so this is the one I drove... BMW M235i ...about 320hp 8 speed in-line 6 turbo ...bit 'wasted' when we were putting around at 50kph [30mph].

Fortunately it didn't rain during the parade so the roof was down [as it SHOULD be on a convertible] ...

So....

What do you do in that time no-one pays you...

Now....let's see if I got this right....[it's been a little while].

Long ago, in a Galaxy far, far away [March, 2001], Wincustomize.com was created.

Slowly, evolving out of the Primordial Swamp there came Users.

With the relentless March of Time there were Promotions.

This is but the latest of them.

Congratulations, one and all....

Humour for smart people


The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again invited readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding,  subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.


Here are the winners:


1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.

2. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

I have 4 computers running Windows 10.

On all 4 I've either avoided by deferring and/or simply not been in the rollout of the Anniversary Update yet.

So I decided to treat [?] Terry to the new and 'improved' Win 10 and loaded it on hers via me 'forcing' the update.

And all worked fine....even improved some graphics glitches [as in eliminated them, not made them bigger].

So...

Armed with an exuberance of confidence [you know....confidence - that feeling you have...

It's that time of the year again.  I've been to the track to get my passes etc. .... for the 37th time in a row.

Albert Park [Melbourne] is just 5 days away.  I'm posted at Turn 6 Left [Comms] and Terry's at 5.8 Right [Trackie]

And to think I was 26 years old at that first one I did in 1980 - when Alan Jones was World Champion.

Gone are the days of push-starting Senna [on my own] in Adelaide - I'll leave nudging 700 kilos of F1 to someone younger...

For anyone unsure..... think "To Kill A Mockingbird".

A more significant piece of literature in recent times there hasn't been.

A niece's computer is 'entertaining' me.

It's Win 10 [need I say more]....

I had this idea to boot into safe mode to do an sfc /scannow... as there appears to be 'issues'.

Now, getting into safe mode isn't the problem....did that....as far as the login.

Dunno what the password is....

"Fuck it", I said "I'll reboot back to 'normal'.

So I reboot....

...and I'm back at the safe mode login.

Yes, there are ways to hold shift...while ...

My 'mean' machine chucked a wobbly on Saturday....

Dunno what happened, but those wonderful BSODs referenced 'asmtxhci.sys' which is an ASUS USB3 driver.

I have a vague feeling it might have been caused by plugging in a mem card reader earlier that day.

Being a 'devoted' user of  True Image 15, I had incremental backups of the OS and a last full one that dated to Wednesday ... which is ultimately what I restored to.

Being clever, I also have in place ever...
