... ah wasn't that the ultimate frat party song Grin Whenever I think of the Ramones it transports me back to high school where a slightly eccentric chemistry teacher -- who was into snakes and the Ramones -- made science cool!

And Johnny was one of the right good guys too Happy

That particular form of cancer is very bad.
I should know, my brother died of it.
I am deeply sorry for his fans and family.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
