After reading our new InfoSec thread, I decided that it may well be a good time to check Windows update...

"Most recent check for updates/last installed updates:  November 2015"

Well, crap.

That's when I upgraded my PC hardware and OS last.

I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

Anyone notice that with more modern times we are edging close to really nice looking garbage homes?

Like... No longer do crap homes need to look like crap... but... yeah they are still crap and you know they are?

In a near future, there will be no more homes. You'll grow your own organic personal space. It'll start cradle sized when you are born, slowly expanding to house size, or mansion size if you can afford the extra nutrients. Once you get near retirement age, it's starts shrinking, and when you die, it'll be exactly the right size and shape to be used as coffin.

That definitely feels suitably sci-fi. Heck I wouldn't be surprised if that was a reference, but otherwise... Yeah you should write the story about this society.

Sounds really annoying those years before you die and you barely have any room to do anything.

It is social commentary on how we treat the elderly :P

So, apparently the new season of samurai jack pissed off a lot of dumb internet people because of the whole romance thing?

I'm ok with this.

So for nearly two years I have lived in my flat and not seen one squirrel and today I finally see one, first he gets chased off by a magpie and then I find the little blighter in my bird feeder (which despite being too small for big birds still attracts magpies and wood pigeons who barely fit). On the other hand nearly every new creature I see ends up inside the feeder so what did I expect.

Might have something to do with how rushed and poorly executed the romance is.

Which I kind of understand why it was framed that way because Samurai Jack has the social skills of an 8 year old.

A romance that reduces Jack into a jabbering idiot for 20 minutes real time... not to mention that in spite of the fact that they are at "Grade schooler" level romance apparently they are like... halfway to marriage.

I don't hate Ashi but I could tell immediately as soon as the romance started to happen that people would HATE her.

Or rather... She is the Yoko Ono of Samurai Jack :P

The windows 10 creator update or whatever?

It just killed the computer.  It would run for an hour before it just crashes.  Now it won't boot, looking for something to boot off of that doesn't exist.  Resetting the Bios worked once but now it doesnt.

But at least it's secure now /s.
