new notification – is . . . .

We use Office 365 at work – and the toolbar comes equipped with a little Bell thingy.

Said Bell thingy shows a ‘1’ or something or other – depending on whether or not something has occurred to demand your attention.

Here’s the toolbar
notify1

 

I got quite excited this afternoon –
because my toolbar had a ‘1’ on it!
Here’s the notification I received


notify

As God is my witness – this system is now notifying people that they have no notifications.

Windows 10 – Anniversary Update preview build

win10start

Curmudgeonly old git wot I am – the WIN10 preview start menu build seems fantastically cluttered with the addition of a ‘rail’ down the far-left edge.
 
(I’ve thoughtfully marked it in the pic -with a lovely wiggly line).
 
Not sure – in the longer run if MS’s and Google march toward ubiquitous icon markings (EVERYONE knows what these icons mean – don’t they . . . I mean, DON’T THEY?) – no, really NO, they don’t. This is singularly inaccessible to most except frequent and constant users.
