My radio is broken so I try to get Radio 4 on the laptop. Selecting ‘Play Live’ the page changes and tells me I need to install Flash Player. I select ‘Install’, Another screen tells me I already have Flash Player installed on my laptop in the latest version of IE, but I can test it if I wish. I select the first test it says you need to install Flash Player. I click the second test it tells me I don’t need to install Flash player and it is working OK. I go back to Radio 4. Selecting ‘Play Live’ the page changes and tells me I need to install Flash Player.
I got my first computer 25 years ago. It was a 386. It had Windows 3 installed. And whatever the latest DOS version was. Now 25 years later one would have thought MicroSoft would have got it right, but no even now MicroSoft cannot write a proper OS program. The word is that Windows 10 is going to be the best ever. That may well be, but it will still be crap. It will be as crap as a crappy thing on CRAP DAY in Crapville, in the US of CRAP. I think I might try UBUNTU. One thing MicroSoft should have learned in all this is ‘You can’t polish a turd’, but give them credit they’re still trying.
