We've been around a while, Steve  :biggrin: Probably a couple of the few (with KetilO of course) that are left who ever ran into some of the old coders like Iczelion, EWayne, Hiro, F0dder and NaN.

Now and then someone thinks my handle is "NaN", since tag line says "I am NaN". Of course that's The Prisoner's defiant "tag line" "I am not a number", but why should later generations recognize it? Anyway the real NaN's web page is here (as Biterider informed me). Unfortunately no activity for almost 15 years.

The paradox is, I "am" a number, pi :) What can I say, seemed funny at the time; but if you have to explain your avatar, it's not a good avatar ;)

I was thinking rrr was "almost a sphere": 4/3*r*r*r*3.14159 (volume formula)

Lol, f0dder is younger than I am, the rest are about the same age I think. NaN is a fellow Canuck, hails from Ottawa, Ontario if I remember correctly.

It's a good avatar, just the handle of one of the coders from back when got me thinking.

If you don't want to upgrade to Windows 10 just uninstall update KB3035583 and select hide update, you'll never be asked again and the icon on the taskbar will disappear. That's what I did on my Win7x64 ultimate virtual machine and it works fine with no side effects.

When I view my update history in Control Panel, for KB3035583 the details start with:

"Install this update to resolve issues in Windows..."  :biggrin:


Well Microsoft, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten us into.

I followed the instructions for KB3035583 and removed the task bar icon but it came back after the next lot of Microsoft updates.

You have to remove the update then in Windows Update choose to hide the update, it will not download again.

They are trying to hold up to the Desktop bastion, after loosing the phone wars. Having most people have windows (free or not) helps their bottom line.

Maybe the 3d technologies they are pushing will bring them an edge once again.
