One of the newspaper headline/story generators. It was supposed to be The Belgian Times, English edition but the fold hid it.

Here's another - https://www.makemynewspaper.com/free...aper-templates

There are tweet generators too but it didn't work last time I tried.

I'm thinking that we might need to ask mods to delete the last few posts.

I think we're safe. There's no reason for him to be provocative in these parts.

Scientists have no proof that Windows 10 does not cause cancer
Doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

One of my BE mates remembered some time ago that I was still running Windows 7 and directed me to this thread. I've been too scared to look, and now I know why. I wonder how long I can just keep going with my beloved 7?

If Microsoft sends an email with a login key and asks to setup a password, Don't.
They bricked my friend's windows machine by long distance, and he was not impressed.

Ok, thanks for the tip about the email.

Was does 'bricked' mean? Sounds scary!

FFS. Can they do that to me if I don't upgrade to 10? (I suppose you can tell I haven't read the thread)

Just keep using your Windows 7 and don't talk to strangers, I think I have about 10 computers right now and all but 2 of them are loaded with Linux 16.04. The other 2 have Linux 18.04 because I don't like it as much. My friend prefers 18.04, but I never took to it. When something eventually happens and your OS no longer makes the grade consider downloading Linux. It's free and is being constantly updated for free. If you don't already have a solid state drive that's the next recommendation; leaves the spinning rust in the dust.
