Well, I've upgraded to Windows 10.  Took 2½ hours to complete.  It finally booted up to my usual Desktop, albeit with different fonts, and I even managed to reset it to my old Theme. I was up till 1:00 this morning tweaking, but I think I've got it as I want it now. I've checked all my programs and apart from Adobe Audition which seems to be having a bit of a hissy fit, everything seems to be working.

The new Edge is released this week. Before you slag it off read the review in Web User magazine or try it yourself, it's amazing.  ;D

I get them often, of varying types. However, as I run my own email server it's obvious they're phishing attempts.

Has anyone else had one of these e-mails (see png attachment) ?

The one I received this morning is from domain name: storage.com   IP-address: 103.207.38.154

It is of course a trap, and clicking on any of the embedded links would have unforeseen consequences.

I bought an iPhone SE in 2018 and up till end of 2019 it was OK. Then came IOS13 :mad: :mad: :rant2: :rant2: :bawl: :bawl: :eek4: :eek4:

Lost service, calls dropped, couldn't connect etc etc etc

Lost of new features - whoot!

Battery life now hopeless and I just don't trust it any more. Gone back to my HTC 510 on ANdroid 4.x - because it works. Also using a Galaxy S4 with Lineage 16 ROM - Was Cyanomodgen. Again - it just works!

Apple - never ever ever again :rant2: :rant2: :rant2: :rant2: :rant2:

Which has nothing to do with upgrading from 7 to 8.1 which I did look at but in the end I just set up a new drive on a good desktop machine with base W7 and then used the MS Media Creation tool to upgrade to 10. I use windows a twice a year if I really have to otherwise I'm all linux for many years now. Just accept that 10 is the way it's going and get on with it I'm afraid.

After using it for a while the only thing that stands out is the battery use. If the battery on the iPhone would last as long for the same price I would go back, but not if I had to pay £800 plus.

Have you gone off the Samsung then?  I thought you said initially that you preferred it to the iPhone.
