    My Windows 10 update will have to wait, I turned the updates off before logging in …. sheesh

  • http://wizbangblog.com/ Adjoran

    I got a separate notice my upgrade was ready, haven’t installed yet. The Tuesday updates were already done.

  • Wombat_socho

    I had the window open and accidentally hit the “Start Update” button while I was typing a comment on Facebook. :facepalm:

    Hate it when that happens!

    Have you considered upgrading Windoze to Linux ?
    Yeah, I know there’s stuff that only runs on Windows, the machine I’m on right now is multi-boot with 2 Linux versions and Win 7 … yes I’m a geek.

    I moved my travel laptop over to Windows 10. So far it’s OK. I like it much better than 8.1, but my big desktop back at the home office will stay on 7 for a while.

    I can’t play Civilization III or Bioshock on Linux.

    OT: Holy… words fail me. I’ve been avoiding watching the PP videos, and The Federalist just pointed this out:

    In the second video, we find out explicitly from Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter that abortions performed with feticides aren’t viable for fetal-tissue donation. If digoxin is used, it renders the fetal stem cells unusable. (See the footage and the transcript.) Knowing this, Nucatola’s graphic explanation of how to “crush” unborn babies to maximize organ retrieval requires a clarifier. These babies are being strategically maneuvered, crushed, and dismembered under ultrasound guidance—while still alive.

    When I realize that there will be a day when these people will stand before God and watch themselves say and do these things, perhaps confronted by the babies they murdered, as well, I experience real terror for their souls. Disgust and righteous anger are easy; praying for them to repent is difficult, but we must force ourselves to do it.

    Facebook screws everyone sooner or later.

    I would love to be, who was it? Jonah at Nineveh? Where they actually heeded the warnings. Whiny bitch, oh no, now my proclamations of doom won’t come true and I’ll look like a fool.

    That was the point! To get them to change! If only we could suffer the same embarrassment.

    Linux is great as a server, but stuff like this keeps me from using it as my main desktop machine: http://blog.codef00.com/2011/02/18/the-default-browser-on-linux-debacle/

    Running Linux in a VM in Windows is good enough for me.

  • Quartermaster

    My Engineering Software won’t run on Linux either.
