Just heard Big Ben will go silent next Sunday for four years.

Was that a pun?

No, they are working on the tower and they are afraid that the sound may hurt the workers.

Watch out for the Creator's update. I installed it and saw my RAC drop by 50% at Einstein. I rolled it back.

I did the Creator's update last week on my W10 box and it's Einstein production was not affected but my RAC dropped a fair amount due to pendings growing quite a bit. For the lack of anything else I blame that on the WOW event. I posit many crunchers are ramping up Seti and not crunching as much Einstein.

I have a laptop with Windows 10 Home ed on it, I know how to move the cursor around, but that's about it, I like Win 7 Pro x64, but then 7 wasn't any harder to run than any other previous version of Windows, MS screwed the pooch on 10. Of course the laptop itself was free. Sigh.

When it's free, you accept it graciously or decline it even more graciously, but don't bitch about it.

I could probably learn to use 10, but liking it would take a lot longer. When it first came out, they said it was designed to work the same way as the phone and tablet OSes, but I don't want my computer to work that way. I only tolerate it on my phone because I have to.

I accepted the laptop, they don't know about what I said about 10 just now, and it doesn't seem to be the original OS, which I think might have been 7, since I don't recall seeing 10 on the laptop at all, not until I got it, they were going to give it to charity, but offered it to Me 1st.

Still waiting for the correct rent bill, all I got today was an incomplete bill, the part of the bill pertaining to electricity was missing, the manager is now aware of this, and has emailed the energy management company.

I'm sticking with 7 as long as I can. I suppose eventually I'll get a new computer and it will have 10 on it and I'll learn to live it, but I will never "upgrade" my 7s.

Why? Do what a lot of us DIY crunchers do. Build your own as you want it done. So you can keep 7 as long as it's viable.

Yawning before the outrage.

When the outrage comes, I'll go check on the thread at Einstein. It will probably end this week.
