Hankering for days to hear the 1982 BBC Cymbeline for its Act 5 RECOGNITION SCENE

 Ordered it from Netflix and got a hyper-violent 2015 biker movie with good actors prostituting themselves. Sealed it up and sent it back.

Helen Mirren version not available.

Prime does have 1982 but only if you pay to join another site.

Ordered a copy on eBay with a note to the seller asking to be sure it is not the biker movie. We will see. There is SUCH a great satisfaction with one revelation and recognition after another. Sometimes the simple pleasures should be indulged.

A Fellow Sufferer: "My photos have been hijacked by 3D paint - Microsoft . . . " Why, oh Why?

 

 

Windows 'Paint 3D' hijacks JPEGs from Adobe legend Photoshop CC 2019 and has no app uninstall, why??

Just the one problem with Windows app Paint 3D (formerly MSPaint apparently).

Let me make this clear, I have already set all file associations for Adobe products because I need them for established clients,...  and still Paint 3D launches instead of Photoshop.

I can right click a file to open a jpeg or a JPEG with Photoshop, telling it to always use Photoshop. And the first time is fine. Then any subsequent open requests it forgets, ignores Photoshop and launches in Paint 3D all over again.

This is unacceptable and puts me off ever trying Paint 3D for anything.

1. To uninstall Paint 3D app so that it doesn't conflict with Adobe Photoshop
Windows+X > Click Windows Powershell (Admin) > Copy the below command and right click in Powershell to paste it

Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.MSPaint | Remove-AppxPackage

( If you ever need it, Microsoft Store > Type Paint in
Find box in Microsoft Store > Click Paint 3D > And Install )

2. File Association issues -
My apologies. This is one of the bugs which has been caused by new Windows update.

Microsoft is well aware of this issue and has been working to fix this issue. I think next build may have this fix in place.

Meanwhile, I would recommend that you submit this issue as a feedback to Windows team through Feedback Hub

You can uninstall Paint 3D by going Settings, Apps, scroll down to Paint 3D, click on it, click on uninstall.

If you want to use it later it is there in Microsoft store, click on the 3 dots, click on Downloads and updates, click on All owned (on the left top of the screen), scroll down to Paint 3D and on the right Install.

Thank you for your note Vijay.

1. I have tried this but it did nothing for me. Can we get the Uninstall button activated please?

Didn't Paint 3D go away? I first executed on my machine and then posted it. Can you run it again and restart your computer?

(Microsoft hasn't activated uninstall for any Store app. Currently there is no hack for this)

There is another method to uninstall any Store app. Uninstall it using Windows 10 Store App Unistaller - Apps-Cleaner.zip

Uninstall for this app is greyed out and therefore useless.

When you look at the uninstall it has a grey background.  Were the letters black or grey?
I have been able to uninstall on my computers.

Grey letters under Paint 3D, making it impossible to uninstall this app in Windows10 version 1803 (OS Build 17134.345).

I tried the popular PowerShell(Admin) approach again to remove the app - to avoid the file association bug...

Restarted immediately and the app dissappears from the Apps & features list.

But double click on any jpeg,...and instead of launching the Photoshop I want, it returns and relaunches Paint 3D.  :(

Looking forward to a fix before considering a Mac.

Shadows on the ceiling, dead spiders on the floor, shadows so long, windows tightly closed against toxic air. It got to Caputo.

Michael Caputo--the kind of cool guy we need at Health and Human Services. We can all sympathize.

“I don’t like being alone in [fill in the blank]" [fill in any name] said in the video, describing “shadows on the ceiling in my apartment, there alone, shadows are so long.”

A local attorney makes an exhaustive list of violations by the recently resigned Chief of Police, who left her gun in a public women's toilet

 SLO police chief concealed communications, violated policies in search for gun, attorney says

After Chief Deanna Cantrell lost her gun last year, she and the department undertook an extensive effort to keep the case quiet, a defense attorney says.

“Across more than 10 police reports and dozens of hours of electronic media, one trend is clear,” [Pete] Depew wrote. “Every coincidence, every mistake, every dropped call, every semantic ambiguity, every gender-neutral sentence construction, every jurisdictional irregularity, every malfunction, every phone call on a private cellphone, every lapse in judgment, every deviation from SLOPD policies, every sequence of events that strains believability — coincidentally helped keep Chief Cantrell’s identity as the loser of the firearm from becoming public knowledge.”

120 degrees over the hill in SLO. Tucson, Phoenix, prepare for immigrants.

 

San Luis Obispo now has a new heat record.

On Sunday, temperatures at the Cal Poly weather station reached 120 degrees. That is the highest temperature since record-keeping began in 1869, said John Lindsey, a meteorologist with Pacific Gas and Electric.

The previous record was 115 degrees, set in 2017 during another record-breaking heat wave.
