So I was REAL close to writing a posting about those dumb commercials where everyone keeps saying “windows.”  In the meantime, there I was writing some stuff at the local “coffee-shop-where-I-drink-hot-chocolate-cuz-I-don’t-like-coffee-but-want-to-look-like-a-big-boy” shop.  As usual, I pushed my time to the max because, as one friend used to say, “laptops and PowerPoint have brought procrastination to a whole new level.”

OK, time to run and drive like a Jagoff to get to the next meeting.  Time to shut down the laptop.  Then I see the screen above.

“Please do not power off or unplug your machine.  Installing update 1 of 24.”

THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED RIGHT NOW!!!!  And then it takes 17 minutes to complete.

OK, Bill Gates Kool-Aid drinkers,  the next time I need an update to my “Macro-.dll-DMAK-GDI-Net BEUI-.mxp-WFW 3.11-WEW-.PSD-.xml-WYSISYG-VXB-.vga-URL-.SDK-LMNOP-EIEIO-WTF syntax” files, how about a little warning and a choice to say “Not right now I have a million @#$@# things to do” YA JAGOFF!!!
