    Sorry, but I can't see any connection whatever to Windows 10.

    Get it? Can't see any connection if it's wi-fi (teehee)

    Gotta just horse around occasionally. I can't be serious, grumpy & just boring tech talk all the time.

    Not at all obvious to me either, but I see the thread has been moved to a more appropriate Forum.

    Not a sense of hunour, exactly... but, an occasional sense of casual (pointless) fun oft goes a long way.

    With 'humour' like that, you are more likely to be doing time, rather than riding it!

    Terrific, someone, namely you, so quick to so very nicely & graciously point out a typo. Here's the correction for you - Shakespearian

    Obviously you are not aware that Shakespeare spelt his name more than one way - I'm not sure if Shakspear was one of them, hence the question...

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spellin...peare%27s_name

    Perhaps I should have put a smiley in...

    WordWeb for Windows says it can be "Shakespeare" or "Shakspere": "English poet and dramatist considered one of the greatest English writers (1564-1616)", AKA "Bard of Avon".

    Has Drew's use of "oft" caused confusion in later posts?

    Could it be Drew didn't have Shakespeare in mind, rather Scottish author Robbie Burns, "best laid plans a' men an' meece aft gang agly" (best laid plans of men and mice often go astray).
