What's wrong with always being up to date on.. well.. updates? More or less solves the complaint that viruses/malware/etc happen because folk never updated.


https://www.windowsc...dows-10-updates
https://www.windowsc...ally-windows-10

I don't mind being up to date, in fact I normally update my Linux machines daily. It is when every update requires you to reboot or something stops working that I get annoyed. Then, if you also add on the fact that Windows decides when it gets to update instead of me kicking it off, I tend to be doing things that I care about when it decides it is time to update and reboot. That isn't okay with me.

I have gotten to the point with my Windows 10 laptop that if I need to take it anywhere (for D&D, or other things), I fire it up the day before make sure it is up to date with all the crappy auto-updating, and then I turn on airplane mode so it can't mess with things. It is just sad that I would prefer to use a computer running windows 10 without internet access at all.

I haven't read those links yet, but the second one sounds like it could be useful.

If anyone is looking for something to read - this is a nice article to bring the core idea of HTTPS back to your forefront.

Brief(ish) explanation of how https works

Mom had a heart attack last night, so I'm leaving work and skipping the hackathon to be with her. :(

Just got back to her house. She's staying overnight. It was minor thankfully, so they're just keeping an eye on her since some artery plug or whatever didn't do what it was supposed to do, but I think all in all, she'll be fine. Thanks for the love. <3

Client: OK, next item on the list. It looks like when people enter an access code that field is case-insensitive, which is good. Do you think we should put a message there telling them that it's case-insensitive?

Me: No, I don't think it's necessary to tell them that they can't mess it up.

Client: OK, great! Moving on.

Just talked to mom, things aren't as simple as we thought. Turns out it was a major heart attack, and she has a big hematoma, and isn't allowed to get up, and had to lie down even further (was 30 deg, back to 0). Brother and baby finally came over to see her, so that's nice.

Ouch, that sucks. Sounds like you and your bro are going to need to figure out how you're divvying up the support roles when she's out of hospital but still recovering. Probably worth starting that conversation now or it'll turn out that it's all on you. ('cause boys suck)

Yeah, this is the first time my mom's seen him since June. He's essentially cutting her out of his life because he's a giant tool shed (not just a tool, the whole damned shed).

Sounds like a real charmer. Still, one could hope that he'd maybe think "gosh, mom's not well, maybe I should stop being such a shit and give her a hand".

Nah. Anyways she's home now. Unfortunately, her toilet is broke so you have to dump a bucket of water in it to flush it, and she's not allowed to lift anything, so idk how that's gonna work.

Got a bit of snow overnight. Nothing horrible, and the roads were mostly clear this morning. I went in to work, and so far today we have had 2 power outages (at work). It is such fun having to restart what I have been working on in the middle of it, repeatedly. Especially since I am working on firmware flashing - It isn't like anything horrible could happen there if a power outages overlaps a firmware update...
