    From Daryl Stout@454:1/33 to Nancy Backus on Thu Jun 18 01:50:00 2020
    Nancy,


    I was offline much of June 9, due to 3 reasons:
    1) Internet: The Xfinity connection, and the cable modem, kept
    resetting.

    How unhelpful...

    If it wasn't one thing, it was another.

    2) Thunderstorms: We had 2 waves...one from 9am to 12 noon, then the
    other with the cold front from 9pm to 12 midnight.

    At least there was a benefit to the cold front... ;)

    A cold front through in June is rare.

    3) MAJOR UPDATE to Windows 10...it took 7 hours to finish everything. (Now, I know why you like DOS <G>).

    But of course... ;) Legacy software doesn't require updates, even...


    And, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"....but you can't convince
    Microsoft of that.

    ... They're coming to take me away, ha ha, hee hee!! They're ... Uh
    Oh!!

    I requested a room with a window. <G>

    And did you get one...? They usually only have fully padded ones...


    It's like the one where there's this wooden fence, and there's a
    peephole in it. One keeps hearing this number (for the joke, we'll
    use "29")...so, when this guy goes to look through the peephole, he
    gets poked in the eye...and now, the voices are repeatedly saying "30".

    Well, they do have to keep patching security holes....

    A cautionary tale... ;)
