      Rita Coolidge - Close The Window, Calm The Light 1978
      Outside the rain begins and it may never end
      So cry no more on the shore
      A dream will take us out to sea
      Forever more forever more
       
      Close your eyes and dream
      And you can be with me
      'Neath the waves through the caves of hours
      Long forgotten now
      We're all alone
      We're all alone
       
      Close the window
      Calm the light
      And it will be alright
      No need to bother now
      Let it out
      Let it all begin
      Learn how to pretend
       
      Once a story's told
      It can't help but grow old
      Roses do
      Lovers too
      So cast your seasons to the wind
       
      And hold me dear
      Oh, hold me dear
       
      Close the window
      Calm the light
      And it will be alright
      No need to bother now
      Let it out
      Let it all begin
      All's forgotten now
      We're all alone oh-oh, we're all alone
       
      Close the window
      Calm the light
      And it will be alright
      No need to bother now
      Let it out
      Let it all begin
       
      Owe it to the wind, my love
      (Instrumental)
      All forgotten now
      My Love

      Lyrics: 🎵🎼🎶
      I was a fool to ever leave your side
      Me minus you is such a lonely ride
      The breakup we had has made me lonesome and sad
      I realize I love you 'cause I want you bad,
      hey, hey
       
      I spent the evening with the radio
      Regret the moment that I let you go
      Our quarrel was such a way of learnin' so much
      I know now that I love you 'cause I need your touch,
      hey, hey
       
      Reunited, and it feels so good
      Reunited 'cause we understood
       
      There's one perfect fit
      And, sugar, this one is it
      We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited,
      hey, hey
       
      I sat here starin' at the same old wall
      Came back to life just when I got your call
      I wished I could climb right through the telephone line
      And give you what you want so you will still be mine,
      hey, hey
       
      I can't go cheatin', honey; I can't play
      I found it very hard to stay away
      As we reminisce on precious moments like this
      I'm glad we're back together 'cause I missed your kiss,
      hey, hey
       
      Reunited, and it feels so good
      Reunited 'cause we understood
       
      There's one perfect fit
      And, sugar, this one is it
      We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited,
      hey, hey
      Yeah, yeah, yeah Baby
       
      Lover, lover, this is solid love
      And you're exactly what I'm dreamin' of
      All through the day
      And all through the night
      I'll give you all the love I have with all my might,
      hey, hey
       
      Reunited, and it feels so good
      Reunited 'cause we understood
       
      There's one perfect fit
      And, sugar, this one is it
      We both are so excited 'cause we're reunited,
      hey, hey

      We’ll know we’ve made it as a newsletter when a) we become the largest U.S. city by population and b) we get invited to Microsoft’s HQ to demo the HoloLens 2, the updated mixed reality headset it

And instead of going after individual consumers, Microsoft is selling the HoloLens 2 to corporations with employees who work with their hands—think factories.

      And because we’re not salty at all, let’s get more insight from tech journalists who actually got the invite to Redmond, WA:

      Those who have followed me elsewhere know I have been grumbling about Word lately. When I grumble, I grumble big. I did it on Twitter, too, even tagging @microsoft. Very quickly I heard from @OfficeSupport   Hi, Tom. Thank you for reaching out. Please tell us more about the issue that you're having? Also, which Office application are you using? We'll wait for your response.   Me: This is kind of you to respond. The ‘Link to Previous’ button seems to have no effect. Office365Word. Enter chapter titles in odd header & it still populates headers of other sections. Sometimes it does. Othertimes no. Am I misreading the instructions?   Would you like to call our technical support team for a help? They can walk you through and guide you on how to use the Word. They can also answer all your questions in real time. Call them at 1-800-642-7676.   Me: If I enter the number you have given me, 800-642-7676, into a search engine, I come up with a host of pages saying that the holders thereof are frauds and liars.   …We understand the caution regarding this. We would like to confirm that the number we’ve provided is a legitimate Microsoft number…   A day or two passed. Then I heard from them again.   Hi, Tom! How’s everything? We hope you're having a great time. We’d love to hear about your experience with our Social Media support here: http://msft.social/dDqG3B . Feel free to send us a message anytime if you need our help. 1/2   Me: It’s not going well at all. Googling the phone number you gave me, 1 800 642 7676, returns many pages that say you are a scam.   (Concurrent with their tweet above): You may also Subscribe to our Customer Support YouTube channel here: http://msft.social/RqoPMD . Thanks for your time! 2/2   Me: One channel is all I need. If Google says the phone number you gave me, 1 800 642 7676, is a fraud, I will not hold my breath on a YouTube channel. Clean up that mess, if it is wrong.   .........   Everyone knows this phone number. This is the number that pops up when suddenly your screen freezes and you are advised that you have a virus or much worse. If you call them, you will find that they speak English poorly, and are intent upon having you cede control of your computer to them so that they may better 'help' you.   Look at your address bar and you will see it is simply a web page that has taken over everything else. That does not mean it is easily disposed of. Ususally a hard reboot is required, and also that browser session must be prevented from re-opening.   Plainly, these folks are outside of the country, so they are not easily thwarted. Even so, I am a little surprised that the actual Microsoft, big as it is, does not do whatever it takes to shut them down, as it leaves a horrible ugly taste toward their products from those who have been so accosted, and probably drives many to Apple. Maybe @admin, influential as he is, can pass this along to them. This is a job that even @The Librarian (the old biddy) may not be able to handle.

      When Microsoft went public in March of 1986, co-founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen, two friends from high school who bonded over their mutual love of computer science, became multi-millionaires.
      Gates, then 30, remained CEO and rose to prominence as one of the richest people in the U.S. The shares he sold made him $1.6 million, and the 45 percent stake he retained gained a market value of $350 million.
      The young CEO celebrated his newfound wealth by making a very sensible decision: He paid off his $150,000 mortgage, he told Fortune in 1986.
      "I bought one thing that was a tiny bit of a splurge," Gates told David Rubenstein during a 2016 Bloomberg interview. "It was used, but it was an incredible car."
      Gates first purchased a Porsche 911 Turbo in 1979 and rumor has it that he was pulled over quite a few times in the blue sports car. This 911 has since been auctioned off for $80,000. 
      Gates didn't let the car sit around gathering dust: The CEO loved to put its speed to the test in drives around the New Mexico desert, near where Microsoft was headquartered at the time. After one particularly raucous night, he even had to call Allen to bail him out of jail, according to a Time profile from 1997.

      "Sometimes when I would want to think at night, I would just go out and drive around at high speed," Gates told Rubenstein. "Fortunately, I didn't kill myself doing that."
      Gates's wealth continued to balloon after Microsoft's IPO and he became a billionaire in 1987 at age 31. At the time, he was the youngest person ever to reach the milestone. And by 1995, his fortune had grown to $12.9 billion, making the then 39-year-old the world's richest man, a title he held for years afterward.

      Everyone who has a PC knows how the key shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Delete is used. It is usually used to access the computer’s task manager when something doesn’t seem right. While you need to use two hands two press all three keys on the keyboard to make this function work, it’s not usually a problem for Windows users. However, the founder of the mentioned computer company, Bill Gates regrets having the Ctrl+Alt+Delete command. He prefers if it were just a single button.

      The McDonald's McGold Card is a food-redemption ticket that provides the owner with free, unlimited McDonald's for life. The existence of the card gained international attention after actor Rob Lowe flashed his on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2015. Since then, it has been revealed that a range of VIPs and celebrities have their own version of the card - from Bill Gates to Warren Buffett. So how do 'normal' people go about getting one? Here are the details.
      When Rob Lowe appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live with a golden McDonald's card last year, one big question remained: How could the Average Joe get his own card that granted him access to unlimited McDonald's? Not easily, a little sleuthing revealed.
      The first complication: Rob Lowe's Gold Card was not issued by McDonald's corporate office. Instead, it is from the owner of, and can only be used at, McDonald's franchises in Santa Barbara or Goleta, California.
      While Lowe says he received the Gold Card because his buddy's dad created the McMuffin, McDonald's confirmed to Business Insider that he in fact received the card from David Peterson — the buddy in question, who is now a McDonald's franchisee himself.
      Herb Peterson, who passed away in 2008, was a legendary force in the fast-food world. He debuted the first Egg McMuffin at the Santa Barbara McDonald's he co-owned with David in 1972. Peterson started his work with McDonald's as the vice president of the company's advertising firm, D'Arcy Advertising, and went on to become a franchisee and operator of six McDonald's locations.
      Today, David Peterson has carried on his father's legacy with the chain. Earlier this year, the franchises he runs in the Santa Barbara and Goleta areas became some of the first to launch "taste-crafted" sandwiches as part of the McDonald's turnaround plan, reports local news station KEYT.
      Peterson also wields the power to give out Gold Cards, granting the recipient free McDonald's at the locations he owns and operates. While Lowe is quite likely the most high-profile person to be awarded the card, he is not the first — just the first to brag about it on late-night TV.
      For example, Larry Crandell was awarded a Gold Card by Peterson on his 90th birthday, reports SantaBarbara.com. While the cards are nearly identical, unlike Lowe's card, Crandell's awarded him free McDonald's for life.
      Crandell is a bit of a celebrity in Santa Barbara, having reportedly helped raise millions of dollars for the community as a volunteer and expert emcee.
      In fact, McDonald's franchisees across the country appear to be more than happy to give local heroes free food with their own versions of the "Gold Card."  
      Warren Buffett told CNBC he had a McDonald's card that allowed him to order unlimited food for free in Omaha.
      Charles Ramsey, who ditched his half-eaten Big Mac to help rescue three kidnapped women in May 2013, was awarded free McDonald's at all locations for a year and unlimited McDonald's for the rest of his life at local Ohio restaurants.
      In March, Ottawa Senators goalie Andrew Hammond, nicknamed the Hamburglar, received a card that gave him free McDonald's for life from an Ottawa franchisee who, coincidentally, was also the father of Hammond's former coach.
      However, there are only two major confirmed stories of people in possession of cards granting them free, unlimited McDonald's anywhere in the country, or even the world.
      While on the campaign trail in 2012, Mitt Romney told a story of how his father had a "little pink card" that awarded him free McDonald's for life. McDonald's confirmed that founder Ray Kroc had given Romney the card, but did not have any record of the reason for the gift. However, the chain noted that Kroc was known to informally gift these Lifetime "Be Our Guest" cards to various people throughout the years.

      Cada vez que un programa se bloquea, la computadora no responde o necesitamos cambiar la contraseña o cerrar sesión, recurrimos a las tres teclas "mágicas": "Ctrl + Alt + Supr" (o "Delete").
      Es uno de los atajos de teclado más usados en todo el mundo para reiniciar la computadora o como último recurso cuando la PC no funciona.
      Sin embargo, Bill Gates, el hombre que fundó Microsoft, dice que fue un error.
      Así lo afirmó este miércoles el magnate tecnológico durante el Bloomberg Global Business Forum, un evento que reunió a los mayores líderes de grandes organizaciones mundiales en Nueva York, Estados Unidos.
      En una tertulia sobre los cambios tecnológicos de los últimos años, David Rubenstein, director del fondo de inversiones Carlyle, le preguntó a Gates por qué había creado un comando que requiriera usar tres dedos para ejecutarlo.

      xperts are warning that there could be further ransomware cases this week after the global cyber-attack. So, what has happened and how can organisations and individuals protect themselves from such attacks?
      What is the scale of the attack?
      Ransomware - a malicious program that locks a computer's files until a ransom is paid - is not new but the size of this attack by the WannaCry malware is "unprecedented", according to EU police body Europol.
      It said on Sunday that there were believed to be more than 200,000 victims in 150 countries. However, that figure is likely to grow as people switch on their computers on Monday if their IT has not been updated and their security systems patched over the weekend.
      There are also many other strains of ransomware which cyber-security experts say they are seeing being given new leases of life.
      In the UK, the NHS was hit hard, but by Saturday morning the majority of the 48 affected health trusts in England had their machines back in operation. The NHS has not yet revealed what steps it took.
      The malware has not proved hugely profitable for its owners so far. The wallets set up to receive ransom payments - $300 (£230) in virtual currency Bitcoin was demanded for each infected machine - contained about $30,000 when seen by the BBC. This suggests that most victims have not paid up.
