No not honey the code witch - honey as in referring to MS....

So, it's Sunday 0 dark early - I don't sleep much these days, but I have started the habit on Sunday morning to check all my VMs and other systems for updates. I'm doing this deliberately to avoid getting randomly nuked...

Every VM and system times out trying to get updates. D'Oh! | :doh:

Trying to live in the MS ecosystem is like living on the Serengeti - you never know when you are going to get eaten.


-------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, on the update page, I read this: "Windows Update is committed to help reduce carbon emissions." Clicking on the Learn More button, I get this drivel: "Windows Update is now carbon aware" - that's the title of the article. If you read down, MS has decided it's a good idea to turn off all of these devices, etc, yada yada. Great, now I need to go in and change all of my settings so that Windows 11 does NOT turn off all of my usb devices talking to hardware.

I really think there is a "Drop Managers on Their Head" department somewhere in Microsoft. I have got to get back to Unix development.
