    I can certainly sympathise with that. I don't get it that often these days, but when I get a bad flare-up it's crippling.

    My eldest used to play a game called Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake on her old tablet. She's just remembered its existence, and is dying to play it again.

    And she can't, because the mobile version appears to have been withdrawn from sale. The Google Play link just brings up an error, the Amazon App store link exists but says I can't install it due to geographic restrictions, and it doesn't show up on either when you search for it. It's not in my Google Play library, either, which is bloody cheeky.

    It's still available on Steam (for £5-odd!), so I'm going to have to set her up with a laptop. How utterly, utterly annoying.

    Right now: the word "womxn".

    Well, you can find the apk on the 'net, if you want to sideload it onto an Android tablet. Not going to link it here, obviously.

    And that's something that's really annoying today: sometimes you cannot get something legally, no matter how hard you try. I had this with a TV series from the UK. I can buy it on the BBC store, but I cannot download or stream it from outside the UK. What the ... ?!

    I did try - after passing the thing through VirusTotal, obvs - but it didn't work.

    I've got there now, though: turns out it's in the history on my Amazon Appstore app on *my* tablet, but can't be found in the Apps menu of my daughter's Amazon Fire tablet for love nor money. Better still, you can't install the Amazon Appstore app on an Amazon Fire tablet - it just errors out - 'cos the built-in app store blocks it.

    Still, it's installed and working on my tablet now - that'll do!

    I'd bet against that myself (Albeit, with 20p) - Of a few hundred W10 machines we support, not one has had 1809 hit it. In fact, the only 1809's we know of are my workstation at the office and my Surface.

    That said, 1803 had an update that has caused us headaches. Wiping drivers kind of headaches, though.

    Sounds like someone somewhere needs their shins kicking.

    Its only the bumber and trim is right. Ask for a proper engineer report if you want to keep the car. They have written that off by looking at photos sent by salvage crooks company.

    The Adobe/Wacom pressure drop bug.

    Yes Mr Cintiq, I want you to draw giant black bogeys all over my artwork at random. I have tried everything from reinstalls to driver rollbacks to fiddling about in the registry, but it seems after a decade there is still no reliable fix once it 'arrives'. Tomorrow I begin learning Clip Studio...

    Have you tried Krita? A few people I know abandoned Photoshop for it for digital art purposes.
