Today I spent an hour and a half trying to debug a modded creature.

Turns out my stupid lizard brain was defining things in the tissue template as [TISSUE:NAME] instead of [TISSUE_TEMPLATE:NAME].

Windows did another automatic update, and now my laptop cant connect to the internet through any means, which means i cant do simple things like check and write emails on anything besides my phone. And it locks up, completely, if i try to run oblivion. Which has never happened before.
And a dwarf fortress save corrupted for the first time in over a year.
It is terrible.
See this is why I didn't update to Windows 10 back when they were all but forcing it down everyone's throats.

I've had a handful of bugs in the first month or two after the release, but since then - pretty much smooth sailing.
Personally, I've had two bugs:
1) Sometimes disk usage pretends to be 100%

None of the solutions I've seen online work. And the reason I say "pretends" is that in task manager nothing is using the disk much at all. No more than usual, anyway. But the computer decides that disk usage is 100% and so it's going to run slow as fuck.

Shit, ive been having that problem too. Right now in fact. Its really hard to get anywhere when it takes 1-2 full minutes for a program to respond to you clicking on an option. But task manager reports all of jack shit going on. 6% cpu use, 100% disk use, but no programs using more than .1 mb/sec, and then only about a dozen total.

Disabling Superfetch and Windows Search (not just stopping, but straight-up disabling them) worked for me.

I've been relatively lucky when it comes to Winblows though, so that may not work.

How would one go about doing that? I havent found anything that lets me disable them.

Nevermind, i think i got it

Task manager doesn't show all tasks. There are "hidden" processes that it doesn't show. Also, I bet it's the Windows' total data collection thing.

Last time this was happening to me it was a dying hard drive. There are diagnostic tools to test this in windows and linux AFAIK, use those.

Earlier, I got $20 cash out at the supermarket along with my purchase of coffee and chocolate.
Then, I completely forgot to wait for the money to dispense. Shit. Not sure if I posted about this before, but in an even bigger WTF this is the second time this has happened to me! I'm normally very switched-on when it comes to getting cash out. I've never forgotten money at an ATM or anything.

Perhaps it's just the classic supermarket vibe, making me desperate to get out of there as soon as possible.
Obviously this also works as a Terrified... the last time this happened, I went back there and was lucky enough for one of the staff to have picked up the money before any other customers could grab it. Who knows if I shall be so lucky twice. At least the place wasn't very crowded this time, so perhaps... I'd really rather I didn't have to go back there so soon, though.
I was planning on having a shower before doing anything. Ugh, so stupid. I'm going to have to stop getting cashout at the self-serve checkout. :-[

Naming computers is a lot more complex than I first imagined.
Nothing too surprising, but interesting read!
I've been using Homestuck land-names for a while, like LOHAC and... DERSE...  Okay not very consistently.  And as the article points out, such names are actually pretty useless on the rare occasions someone else has needed to type the name.  Fine for when explorer manages to discover the devices on the network...  Which is ludicrously unreliable even here in the far future.

My brother uses gemstones like Lazuli and Sapphire, though that's as far as he's needed.  Also, I learned that they should probably be lowercase, even though that'd look weird since mine are acronyms.  But they also shouldn't be acronyms.

When I was growing up we used last names from Civil War commanders.  Last names are probably a bad idea, but I've never met a "Mosby" or "Longstreet".  "Lee", the file server, might have been a problem in a large office.
...Well, there may have been a different problem with that system in an office setting :P

Though, that article is from 1990... I'm not sure how much of the sensibilities are still required.
