My laptop running on Windows 7 advanced 1 hour overnight. I shutdown it at 1:30am last night, and (re)started it today by 10:30am (few minutes ago) but Windows clock was then showing 11:30am.

You gotta be kidding me... Is he going to give himself a diamond profile or something?
CBCA->CMSA->FMVA->Ba.Sc.Math-stat->CFA1,2,3->CISI->FRM->CQF->IFoA->than what?
The goal is to write all three and four letter combinations and try to make sense of it.

He looks about 80.


The roll-out of Windows 95 didn't help.

"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know."

This reminds one of the COVID-19 software. In this case most of the unknowns are known.

Speaking of 95, my company built this package for a Dutch publisher under Windows 95.
