I just made a big mistake.
I was doing some routine stuff that involved a plug-in disk. Nothing serious but it was doing some funny things. I decided to check it out in Windoze.
I rebooted into Windoze for the first time in many months and ran a test on the disk. Grand. No bother. All was fine.
Then I realised that things were happening. Windoze was updating! Even worse, the laptop itself said it was updating after connecting to Dell. Fuck! There were all sorts of messages saying that if I interrupt anything, the chances are that my laptop will be totally fucked up. Bugger!
So I’m stuck here in Windoze. Dell has, for the last ten minutes been installing the first of ten updates. Windoze is trying to install something critical and has been stuck at 5% for an age. I’m locked into a machine that can’t be switched off or switched back into Linux.
I think I’ll go and shampoo some carpets.
Maybe when I come back in an hour or two things will have moved on a bit here.
Windoze is a pain in the hole!
