Isn't there a settings button, where you can control the animation in the game? I play Klondike Forever, which is very animated, but you can turn that off if you don't like it.

My message is for Windows 10 updates, more than the devices: Look, time your changes better. I shouldn't have to reboot in the middle of my work day, just because you like to prove your power by making a minor, completely unnoticeable change.

It doesn't give you the option to delay the reboot until the end of the workday? Whenever I get an update pushed to my computer at work there's an option to delay rebooting by up to I think 4 hours. And they always happen in the afternoon, so I always hit the maximum delay, drag the window to the bottom of the screen where I can ignore it (the "hide" button is disabled by our IT department) and then shut my computer down at the end of the day like I always do, effectively completing the reboot. Although we're still using Windows 7 here. I don't know if it's different with Windows 10.

With Windows 7 (or 8, or whatever it was we had), our system automatically held updates for when you shut down your computer (which could be annoying, if you were in a hurry to leave). Windows 10 opens a hurking gert white window (half the size of my screen) saying a restart is necessary. You can put it off--I don't think there's a limit to how long--but the window itself is an annoyance.

I checked- apparently the option to "limit animations" is already enabled. It's probalby not as bad as I'm imagining it is... it may boil mostly down to "they changed something and now I have to make tiny adjustments to how I use it."

Hey, work computer, what's with the Blue Screen of Death (tm) twice in one week? I thought you were over that?

MS Teams, why is it when I click on the X you refuse to close? I really wish the IT people hadn't installed you on all of the computers. I don't think anybody but the supervisors/managers use you.

Google Chrome: Don't keep more than one password for a website. I only have one account here and you kept giving the wrong password.

I hope that now you only have one password for snopes and don't log me out again.

You can go in and remove incorrect or outdated passwords. Just go to settings and passwords.

I hadn't realized that to change settings and passwords in Chrome I needed to use my computer's password, not my Google password. This is what happens when I let my husband do all the setup. Now I know better.

Dear Facebook,

I am not Latino. My Spanish is not very good. I don't know why you keep showing me ads from Mazda Latino in Spanish. Your algorithms should be able to figure out that I always post in English. I guess you did get it half right -- I do want a Mazda.

Text message app: Please stop """"correcting"""" the word "for" to "foe." I can count on a closed fist the number of times I've needed the word "foe" in a text message.

I get Spanish ads for Cheese-Its.

I don't speak Spanish.

I'm vegan.

Reminds me of the time my mother got a letter from an outdoor magazine that started off with: Dear Mr. Lastname--we know you like to hunt, fish, and other things my mother was not at all interested in.

Dear Car,
You’re not supposed to leave me stranded like this. You’re a friggin Toyota.
