F*$£*&^ B!$*&!£ Windows
Thursday 16th February 2017 - Microsoft
That kind, considerate and ever thoughtful company Microsoft forcibly installed its Anniversary Update on my computer late on Thursday evening. On Friday morning I came down to find the machine still on.
Getting onto the Internet, sending passwords, etc has now become a nightmare. The whole system is completely slugged. It feels like I am back on dial-up. There is, of course, no news as to when this American Giant will sort out its own mess.
Saturday 18th February 2017 - WDW
I didn't go and nobody has told what went on. As there is no meeting on Monday (20th) I will have to wait until next Monday (27th) to find out.

Luckily for me I have another computer with Linux (Ubuntu 16.10) as the primary operating system. I am migrating everything I can to this machine even though it is only 32 bit. It might be possible to dual boot my 64 bit computer if I can get Windows 10 make some room (another nasty Windows trick). Meanwhile I will struggle on in the Microsoft midden.

My other hobby - Folk Dancing - has been taking up my time this week - Monday at Great Preston (nr Castleford); Tuesday calling at Sherburn in Elmet and Wednesday at Barnsley. Will be sharing the calling on Friday at Wrenthorpe (Wakefield) as well.
No commitments next week so maybe, just maybe, I can fit in some wargaming! I can only hope.
