There's no place like home ...

John Cleese wasn't the only person taking an expensive taxi ride due to airport closures, but when I saw this my immediate reaction must have been that he REALLY doesn't like traveling.

Stranded in Oslo, John Cleese takes taxi to Brussels
OSLO (AFP) ? Monty Python comedy legend John Cleese took a 5,100 dollar taxi ride from Oslo to Brussels after becoming stranded in Europe's volcanic ash travel crisis, the Norwegian TV2 broadcaster reported Friday.

high speed trains

I wonder if this will prompt calls for more high speed trains between major population centers in the various EU countries?

good luck to him if he hoped to get the Eurostar train from Brussels back into the UK.

Because of all the air traffic cancellations, Eurostar was fully booked for the next few days.

But that was Friday, so I guess he either found out for himself by now, or struck lucky and found a 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?
