Just a quick update to let you know that the latest Windows update crashed my system, so I'm waiting for the tech guys to get a look at it.

Meanwhile, I'll still be moderating the TMP forums, but not much else will happen until my regular system is back.

And, because lightning never strikes twice, Editor Dianna also has limited internet access due to a broken laptop which the tech tells us cannot be repaired… and since her area is going on a 24/7 lockdown, she won't even be able to leave her apartment for the next week.

And, because lightening never strikes thrice, Editor Gwen is also offline due to equipment problems.

You have to keep a sense of humor sometimes… grin

Of course, ludicrous speed would be the gold standard we should all strive for.

An epidemic of broken laptops ! Had to replace mine and
wife's within past month.

Broken screen in each case.

And I'm just coming off the same "Windows 10 Update" that crashed my system in whole or part for just over a month.

Another example of how "free" can be more costly than any price imaginable.

Interesting that TMP access spiked to over 1100 visits today when it has been between 50-300 most days in September. Did I miss a controversy or has the news you can't log in caused a surge? grin

No idea what caused me to look at statistics in the first place but the spike was interesting.

Ahh.. this is why advertises don't appear anymore.
Force majeure.
Forums are now opened for advertisers until crisis is over? ;-)

Do you mean Hobby News? Service will be restored as soon as my systems are reset.

I don't worry about Win 10 updates. I installed Linux on my computer, happy and easy ever since :)
