Quiz: This Hollywood starlet no dummy

by EdH / April 2, 2006 1:26 AM PST

In addition to her film roles, this beautiful actress co-invented and patented a radio communications system that was a precursor to todays's cell phone technology. Who was she?

No Googling.

Are you familiar with the original Le Petomane?

Google to your hearts content. There was a little paperback book back in the early 60's or possibly even before that about him which we thought utterly hilarious in High School. When it came up in the Mel Brooks film, I fell out of my seat.

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?
