Yea I works you just put everything in the taskbar. At least the taskbar now works in a mode suitable for 2 screens. I've been using it for months. Very stable. But the tiles... BRING ME A BUCKET! ugly, unwanted, uncalled for, uninteresting, uninviting, unwelcome, unwarranted... it made it easy for me to chose what to get for a new mobile, unmicrosoft.

Great they will be able to make a neutron gun to fire on Palestinians from space. Use that old reactor that does nothing put produce plutonium and is still running 20 years past its useby date and was built using stolen technology. Perhaps find a god partial and claim ownership based on an existing patent on god. Wouldn't it have been better to BDS the god particle?

They have been using Facebook comment technology on this very page so imagine my surprise when on Saturday I was no longer able to post the link on Facebook and nor was anyone else. Never mind that, my friends understand It is after all, just a graphic, it isn't a snuff movie! So I shared this with 3 friends using the 'dot' syntax... 2 hours later I received this...

"A more logical choice for overseas storage is in the sparsely populated countries that supply uranium ore to Japan, particularly Australia and Canada. As exporters of uranium, Canberra and Ottawa are ultimately responsible for storage of the nuclear waste under the legal principle of industrial recovery." Do you know the phrase 'Buckley's Chance Mate'... it means zip, zero, no way, won't happen, your dreaming, stop playing with yourself... so little chance that there is less than none at all!"

You know we here at the CIA listen to Slashdot too. We have your IP, your email list, your banking details...

Honestly who cares. What will the CIA learn from ordinary people that they don't already know?

A far great concern is Facebook's ruthless approach to deleting accounts if you become involved in political comment. I'm on my 4th FB profile thanks to these deletes, the last one they claimed was blocked because I wasn't me even though they had my credit card details and student email. This was what they required to 'consider' restoring the account, no guarantee...

Hi,

Thanks for providing this information. At this time, we cannot verify the ownership of the account. Please reply to this email with a digital image of a government-issued ID (e.g., driver's license, passport). If possible, save the file in JPEG format. Make sure the following information is clear:

- Full name
- Date of birth
- Photo

You may black out any personal information that is not needed to verify your identity (e.g., social security number). Rest assured that we will permanently delete your ID from our servers once we have used it to verify the authenticity of your account. Note that we will not be able to process your request unless you send in proper identification. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks,

Liam

Why the fuck would Facebook need from me 'Government Issued Photo ID'. It is the sussest request I have ever seen.
