Josh Van Winkle, 29, one of the horse-carriage drivers at the hotel,saw a dog he thought was posinga threat to one of his horsesand pulled out his .357 pistol, Nixon said.
"The weapon was cocked, and when he put it back into his holster, the gun went off, hitting a 6-year-old male right in the leg just above the knee," Nixon said. The bullet went straight through his leg,Nixon said. ...
Van Winkle was taken to Coconino County Jail and held on suspicion ofaggravated assault, child endangerment and disorderly conduct with a weapon.
I hope so! I hope the kid doesn't lose his leg because of this...

They seem to have gotten rid of the "hibernate" option. You can shut down and you can sleep.
I can't find Solitaire or Hearts. Are they gone?

Hearts appears to have been gotten rid of--here's an article on their website that says "go to the Store, search for 'Hearts', and pick the version you want."
Theoretically if you still have a machine with an older version of Windows, you can copy the executable and any DLLs onto your Win10 machine and use that, but I have never tried it.

The answer was to turn off Proxy connection in the LAN control menu of IE. But I don't like that because it means I can't use Proxomitron, and that's my ad blocking and nasty code protection.
I guess I can turn it off before visiting the store and then turn it back on again afterwards.

Also, Freemium is apparently the way it is now--at least it has been for phone users for years. It seems like nobody wants to BUY an app, so apparently, from what I've read, buying premium in-game currency or whatever, seems to be the only way app makers can actually earn money.
Writing a game for a phone (or the Windows store) is a great way to earn approximately minimum wage.

I've played a few F2P+P2W MMOs lately, but I've steadfastly refused to give them any money out of principle; most of them have multiple currencies, one of which can be bought with cash and sold in some form or other through the auction house, which means that I can earn in-game currency and trade it for enough cash shop funds that I can get the bare necessities. I refuse to play pay-to-click games like anything candy, crush, or saga-related, though.
