"Why Germans Do It Better" alternative book cover.


You were really expecting this, weren't you? An alternative cover of this book started circulating on the internet, where someone replaces the industrial crane with an SS officer beating a victim of a Nazi concentration camp.

Being such a sensitive topic for contemporary German society, the cover with this reference to dark humor has been ignored by the German press. The image is subtle and it is only after a few minutes that we notice the slight change to the original design. The joke was obvious and inevitable but here it is for future memory.

The book, written by John Kampfner and published in August this year, tries to explain to us why a country devastated by war just 70 years ago, became the most important European economy, leaving the United Kingdom to look with envy at this technological, economic and cultural power. But, apparently, there are still people who remember the terror of the Nazi regime and do not want them to forget this ...

You can't delete a folder because Windows 10 is saying that it's not there?

 It happened to me and the only solution that really worked was this one by a user named Rayza73.


"I had this same problem using Server 2012 Std. I tried various options of taking ownership of the parent folder because the Security properties of the folder I was trying to delete were blank, using CMD and Dir /x etc. I even tried sharing the parent folder and then using Server 2008 R2. None of them worked. When I tried Dir /x Server 2012 doesn't show the 8 character filename with the ~1. I tried typing it in myself, but that didn't work either. I then found that there was a space at the end of the folder name. I then tried all the CMD options again using a space, still no luck. Then I finally stumbled upon this solution:

Open CMD and then type:

rd /s "\\?\D:\bad\folder\path "

example: rd /s "\\?\D:\Sharedata\folder1\folder2 " - note the space after folder2 as per the space in the folder name. Obviously D: is the drive that has the folder on it.

This worked for me"

Forget all the other obvious solutions (preview quality, device on and off, etc). This solution works beautifully on my low-end laptop and on my super desktop,

1) Go to options and click shift key and preferences at the same time.
2) Open "Internal" tab.
3) At the bottom look for "enable multi stream render".
4) Change value to "TRUE".
5) Restart Vegas.
