    OK, assuming we get a build today, what time can we expect to see it in UK or EU?
    It usually starts at 7PM here. Few times it was after midnight.
    While we are so far of the theme, I have a problem with printing and not sure if it's because of this build or in general. Got me a "new" printer the other day, an "HP Laserjet P 2015". Windows found drivers and installed them at once and I also downloaded them from HP. Only problem is that it doesn't print from all places. Not printing from pictures, Notepad and Photo viewer but does just fine from Office applications and browsers for instance.

    Even as a native Brit, I cannot work out what the plural of an ex is. Exes is most logical - fox, foxes, but of course ex is a prefix which you cannot pluralise.
    But suppose one had a collection of .exe files (like setup.exe)? The plural of these is probably 'exes' too?

    Buildfeed shows current canary build as 16269, but that's already over a week old.

    They haven't even got the current build number right.

    Probably one of the ex-builds then.

    As ex's are a contraction of ex-somethings, like ex-spouses, the C+W video title was probably the most correctest (with due reverence to local grammar and lexical usage), so ex's is probably best, with the apostrophe denoting the missing part of the contractions.

    For .exes - this would suffice for .exe files to replace executable files if number of characters is limiting

    I did like idea of exen - it has a touch of linguistic class.

    And it rhymes with Hexen...

    As in:

    I would gather up my exen,
    Encode them in a game of Hexen
    And blast them daily with spells and curses,
    And so on and so on for many more verses...

    Hexen takes me back to my early gaming.
