My stupid life

Guess i'd better keep up with updates after all

I'm so terrified of Windows 10's Creators Update that i've taken some extraordinary steps to block it. I know that's a bad idea because it means that i'm also blocking any security patches that Microsoft releases, but it seemed like it was worth the risk at least until Microsoft gets its act together.

But reading about the history behind the WannaCry virus, which was in part possible due to people not keeping up with their patches, is making me rethink that.

(There's a lot more to the story than that, though, and we can blame the NSA for part of it.)

Update: Ten minutes after posting this, Min got the new Android update - which destroys its UI - and i am scrambling to block it on my phone.

Security Question Fail

I have enough trouble remembering this shit.  I don't need trick questions.
