Need help finding a new computer?
Microsoft wants to help, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help-me-choose
Here's what they selected for me.(Not too bad a choice)
<snip image>
Not exactly what I asked for or what I purchased not long ago.

Surprised they didn't suggest Microsoft Surface ;)
I guess you didn't select that as a manufacturer option.

Also in the Priority section they only allow one choice.

Offered me the same system, I guess they have a deal with HP :)

Readying for the Future at Mozilla
https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/01/15/readying-for-the-future-at-mozilla/
https://techcrunch.com/2020/01/15/mozilla-lays-off-70-as-it-waits-for-subscription-products-to-generate-revenue

This definitely comes under the topic title very 'Interesting.'

The Mozilla blog item was a bit of a non-information story with very little detail.  The techcrunch article was more informative, especially the publication of the memo.

I guess it depends on whether you believe in the validity of the climate change theory. :)

I do like the way the Year is dedicated to an animal, but not so sure about the Year of the Rat :)

Ha Ha, bring them on ;)

I used to have an old springer air-rifle and killed a lot of them coming into my back garden.  By all accounts they like water and often live in the banks of ponds, etc.  There is a pretty big pond at the back of my house, I would see them swimming across the pond towards my garden or in the garden.

Over the years I must have dispatched 50 or more, loading the old spring powered air-rifle took a bit of time and some would be gone by the time I was ready.  But I was patient and  waited a few minutes and often they would be taken when they came back.

A couple of years ago I bought a more modern PCP (Pre Charged Pneumatic) air-rifle and would you believe it I haven't seen a rat since then :) 
I guess they must know, or are still giving my garden a wide berth or exclusion zone.

If I see them on land they rarely got back to the water, plus I never took a shot whilst they were in the water.  That would mean they would be moving and even on land I never take a shot at a moving target.
