The Windows 10 upgrade arrived today. I have yet to upgrade, and the beast is going slow for some unknown reason as it is, and I am in two minds whether to go ahead with this confusing upgrade business. One thing is clear Microsoft will know everything about us that it does not know already and 'they' will be keeping tabs on us even closer than before. If only I had brains I could use one of them Unix type browsers. If I had brains I would of course be living in a warm country, by the sea, with several servants seeing to my every need. As it is I'm clearly dumb!
I will await indications from the geeks around us as to whether this new OS works, if I have brains enough to work it, and what are the pitfalls, mistakes and obvious bits Microsoft have forgotten. I suspect within the week a million updates will be flowing around the ether stopping the hackers enjoying themselves, interfering with peoples private computer worlds is a job for the police and tabloid journalists after all.
One thing, every blog now has that daft cookie message on it but I have not seen it on mine, does it show to others I ask? I understand the need for this but wonder about going too far with such things. Surely a small message, whether accepted or not, should suffice?
I have tried to remove things from the laptop today but even that went wrong. I have placed the info on discs, pictures fill discs, this took time and was well organised I thought. However as I went to add fotos to these discs they were either full or I could not find the appropriate disc! Maybe I lost it, deleted it or didn't make one and deleted the previous stuff by mistake, anything is possible here. Still it filled the morning didn't it? My technical expertise is limited but today I must confess it was falling apart, I knew I should have eaten better last night, that's the problem! Something is slowing the beast and with half a brain and the failure of the malware finders to find anything I conclude it must be me. Bah!
This is typical of course, work on fixing things in the house is half finished and many half started ideas leave a mark in odd corners,usually wreathed in cobwebs. My documents folder has many such great ideas I have began and dumped when reality came along, and this desk is awash with books and papers for reasons long forgotten. The story of my life really.
I prepare for the kids tomorrow, the bullwhip suggestion has been useful, extra staff laid on, hopefully, and chocolate produced to keep the girls near me. A useful tip for men failing to attract them, a bag of chocolates produce a response like bees around a honey pot! If they talk too much give them toffees, that does not fail either as they cannot refuse and then cannot talk, wonderful idea that works!
