Many of my former colleagues from my time in television have been expressing their sympathies and prayers concerning this morning’s tragic killing of two journalists. Me personally, I’ve had a pit in my stomach all day since first reading the alerts on my phone, then the full-detailed stories. I’ve gone through my own issues both inside and outside the stations I worked at. They all pale in comparison to anything else that has happened though, including today. I’ve known people that have been threatened and been actual victims of crimes. It’s a frightening thought. And to think, today the victims’ attacker was a former co-worker. Even scarier. Prayers go out to those families tonight. They may never understand, but I hope they will get some peace sooner or later.
Patience, young grasshopper, patience.
The manner and method of release of the brand new Windows 10 operating system has highlighted one particular thing that is not the forte of most Americans these days. Patience is required when going to this new operating system.
Another thing that is highlighted is Windows Update. There are many people out there who have not turned on their Windows Updates because they didn’t know to. There are also those that heard that there was a malicious update that crashed computers. There’s a better chance you will have a car crash than a computer crash due to Windows Update.
Good thing is that if you have updated to Windows 10, Microsoft has taken this worry out of your hands. All you have to worry about now is to be patient. Your Windows Updates will now load for you. If something isn’t working just right just yet, have patience. It will.
(Disclaimer: If you’re having patience with a corporate network, talk to your IT guy. Then decide if you still want to be patient or not.)
