    The show still starts with obscene intro music. How can I opt out?

    Shame about the SpaceX mission, I was looking forward to some footage from the HoloLens experiment. And while we are talking Lenovo, my 6 month old Y70 Touch touchpad has bit the dust so not so reliable as the old kit eh?

    I haven't liked any of the out of the box Windows wallpapers yet (sorry). The one they're working on for Windows 10 looks promising though. Currently, I use the Milky Way theme on my work laptop and Surface Pro 2. I have a Witcher 3 wallpaper on my custom built gaming PC.

    Hi guys.

    I was sad about the Space-X mission but was relieved that no one was onboard.

    When it comes to wallpapers I used the one with the leaves in an avenue in Windows XP, and kept it until Windows 7. Then I came across the Bing desktop app and I've been using that for years with a new wallpaper everyday.

    Currently, on the PC I'm running Windows 10 Insider Preview on, I use one of the defaults as shown here... http://1drv.ms/1FUKHtu

    I don't know why, but I really like that pic.

    I shouldn't have returned from my vacation and Ping show hiatus it seems. The shows have stopped coming since my post :S .

    My PC was downloading the latest build of Windows at the time of that post and I must say I love the new wallpaper and that's what I'm using now.

    We failed to mention that the following week was July 4 - a US holiday, and we didn't record a show due to a reduced availability in the studio.  Back soon! :)

    Thanks Mark. I don't know how I didn't connect the dots.
