While hanging around Twitter over the weekend, I suddenly realised that half the people I follow had replaced their face pics with manga-style cartoon images of themselves. The utility responsible turns out to be Face Your Manga, which lets you build your own cartoon representation of yourself using a point-and-select interface. The finished version is then sent to your email address and can be used on Twitter, Skype or anywhere else you'd rather have a virtual representation in place of your actual visage. Face Your Manga is free and doesn't require registration, but needs Flash to run. (Thanks trib!) [Face Your Manga]

Windows 10's software updates have become a bit of a disaster for Microsoft thanks to a spate of OS-borking bugs and equally problematic patches. It's gotten so bad that each compulsory installation is now met with fear and dread from users. But it could be worse. At least it's not Vista.
Microsoft is readying the public release of its next major Windows 10 update, version 1909. These major releases show up twice a year, first in spring then again in the fall, and tend to include a number of new features, updates and patches. However, they can also come with some major bugs and annoyances, so it’s worth taking some time to prep your PC before you plunge into Windows 10 version 1909.
