    Until an outside, independent auditor certifies the books of any public company, the reports on operations should be viewed with skepticism.

    Don't think it matters to them. They'll believe what they want to believe, and no one can convince them otherwise.

    I agree. Make political campaign financing fully transparent.

    Let's see. We have the primary owner who gets the center chest. The top left is a logo of the district or state. Everyone else over 10% gets a secondary placement.

    This is a fantastic idea. But not companies, just people and their address. I want to know who your actual puppetmaster is. The company is just another level of obfuscation.

    You'd get a better message with the other. Plus, I'm sure they all have "fall guys".

    Agreed, that is a great tool. But it's not as useful when I use dual monitors and need a full screenshot. Or assembling multiple screenshots at one time.

    Yep, Snipping Tool is not the same. Paint was so good for its ability to quickly steal copyrighted images and crop-out the credit watermarks.

    With the Windows 10 Creators Update, released in April, Microsoft introduced the new Paint 3D, which is installed alongside traditional Paint and features 3D image making tools as well as some basic 2D image editing. But it is not an update to original Paint and doesn’t behave like it.
    Probably will still work for what I use it for.

    I don't know about this. Oh, I suppose it is the wave of the future, but there is so much room for abuse.
