Kirk Douglas was a legend and I loved his movies

Kirk Douglas dead at 103.

Kirk Douglas was a great actor, and I am not sure Michael will attain the heights his father reached.

Most of the movies I saw and enjoyed, were released during the 1960s and 1970s. I had fewer opportunities to watch Hollywood movies outside India in the later years.

The movies were riveting largely due to Kirk. I miss him and so does Hollywood. He was a role model for a person in the entertainment industry who was also of high moral caliber. He must have had great genes, healthy habits and discipline to live beyond 100.  I miss him, and so does Hollywood. 

May his soul RIP.

Here are some of the movies I enjoyed:

https://www.amazon.com/Ace-Hole-Kirk-Douglas/dp/B00170F0MK --Ace in the Hole

Zebra bands on Windows Desktop

Well, this looks really odd. Where did these bands come from?

I wonder whether it is the problem with the display hardware. If I capture the window and look at it, it has no bands. Also, the display resolution does not have any effect.

Here is a solution from Window Central.
