    [quote<]Microsoft will never again sneakily force Windows downloads on users[/quote<] Well, not really. This is just about downloading the Windows 10 upgrade on Win7 PCs. Win10 still has no option to not download updates whenever it feels like it. And for people with slower internet, this can kill anything else trying to access the network and then will install when it wants, possibly killing off active applications. We're still a long way from having control of Windows downloads.

      [quote<]We're still a long way from having control of Windows downloads.[/quote<] We had it all the time before Windows 10 came along. That free update thingy sure did the trick to get everyone on 10! (-_-)

    I hope Anno 1800 returns to the 1404/2070 roots management-wise.

    While I was happy enough to play 2205 to completion, it felt a lot different. The tech tree and landscapes are very cool, and if you’re a fan of the series at all then it’s definitely worth a pickup on sale, but I yearn for a new ‘2070’.

      1800 coming our late next year is exactly what will get me to finally pick up 2205 when it’s on sale next. I need to know if I like what they did before getting excited about 1800. If I like it, then I’ll be good with 1800 either way.

    Avocado in mac and cheese sounds interesting. Add some shrimp or smoked salmon, top with parsley and chives, and I’m in.

      Kielbasa, sliced and fried, is my addition of choice for mac n cheese. So good.

          I lived in Santa Fe for two years-chiles are good in everything. Including waffles.

      Seriously. Where is that image from? I would travel a great distance to find myself in front of that display.

        I think it’s not very close, unless you live in Europe;
