Hm. Something’s missing.


I don’t usually bring work home with me, but I did this weekend. I set aside Saturday night, so my Sunday would be clear for loafing, sat down, cracked my knuckles and…Windows update!

If you haven’t had this one yet, it’s a ball-buster. It took two hours and forty-five on my machine, though I’m pretty sure it locked up halfway through. Sure enough that I did a hard reset and crossed my fingers that it wouldn’t mess up the whole business.

It didn’t, I don’t think. Most of the things it has updated are (apparently) things I don’t give a shit about — like touchscreen issues. But it did move everything around my start menu (um, thanks?) and look at my clock. JUST LOOK AT IT!!!

Black type on dark gray. Yes, it’s a known issue. Yes, easy fix. But isn’t that just Windows Update all over?

Budget time carefully before you let this one start.
