Microsoft has issued a security update to deal with a vulnerability which could have lead to a global virus outbreak. They regard this as so serious that they've issued it even for XP computers which they stopped supporting in 2014.


The other Windows operating systems which could be affected where they've issued an update are Windows 2003, Windows 7 (I think that was included in the update they did yesterday), and Windows Server 2008.


Apparently 3.75% of desktop computers in use have Windows XP !

I hope you have had the happiest of birthdays 🍰 🎂 🎁 

Love and hugs from me ❤️❤️❤️

You can never say what you think.


I'd be doing fifteen years and you'd probably get ten.


A man has reportedly killed himself after appearing on The Jeremy Kyle show, feeling humiliated and traumatised when he failed a lie detector test.


The show is no longer accessible and may never return.


I've never liked this show - it provokes conflict and degrades people for entertainment purposes.

You may say people know what they're getting themselves into but does that justify the intent of the show?

It's nasty and Kyle is aggressive and condemning.

ITV should be worried

BBC 2 tonight at 9 pm.


So it turns out that Queen Victoria was amused – by music. Lucy Worsley explores the role music played in both the Queen’s private and public lives, discovering that it transformed the monarchy from a political power into a benevolent cultural force and made her an extremely popular public figure.

Interspersed with snippets of music that Victoria adored, Worsley’s typically accessible documentary reveals the fun side of the queen (although for once it doesn’t involve much dressing up). Her diary describes the pleasure she got from ogling “the fine figure” of future husband Albert waltzing (the dance was too risqué for single women to indulge in) and that she was so fanatical about singer Jenny Lind she would cut short formal dinners to rush across town in order to see the “Swedish Nightingale” perform. Later in life she was obsessed with Indian music but she also loved Scottish bagpipes, although maybe that was partly because she liked a drop of whisky, too.
