    Windows 10 is so bad it made me switch to Linux (currently Arch + KDE). I'm not proud of it, I miss the time when I would buy new hardware and just install WinXP/Win7 on it. Everything would just work. Bugs were a rarity, no excessive privacy concerns, no headache. I would have that feeling of ownership with respect to my PC. I knew that the OS wasn't truly mine, but that was just a very remote idea in my mind. Win10 made it clear to whom it belongs and who has the power over the machine. Microsoft can read each key you press, each website you visit, each dumb face you make to the camera or dumb voice you speak to the mic. They can turn off your machine whenever they feel like. They watch your gameplay and your work. Are you working on a paper or thesis for your doctorate using Ms Word and concern yourself about your ideas being stolen? Guess who has a copy of your document in their servers? Just do the math: Microsoft has millions of great ideas inside their servers right now; there are people and organizations willing to pay large amounts of money for great ideas; Microsoft's main goal is to earn money. Am' I being paranoiac? JRR Martin writes his novels on an old DOS computer to keep his ideas safe. Is he paranoiac? The amount of trust you have to put on Microsoft to use their products nowadays is absurd. And what is lamentable is that the people just don't care, so long as they can play their little games.

    Take care of yourself. Cleaning out the gutters, especially when they are that full is a lot more work than most would think. The good thing was your wife was there and helping keep an eye on you. I would add on a side note, that scoop and the smaller thing you put on a extension handle really do help when cleaning out the gutters. I own both of them for cleaning my gutter.

    In 1999 I worked for Phillips in the UK, writing software for hybrid CD writers / DVD readers to slot into tower PCs. A brand new feature was the ability for buyers to download software updates for the hybrids off the Phillips site and onto the hybrid's onboard OS at home after purchase. We were also told that the software we were writing didn't have to be perfect when we shipped the hybrids because we now could just keep on ironing out the bugs after sale and the customer could install the updates himself. At the time I remember thinking that we were selling this as a feature, but it was really just an excuse to ship unfinished products and make the customer fix our bugs on their own time.

    Just few weeks ago my buddy brought an old laptop asking if could help making it usable. It was like 10-12 yo Dell on which someone installed Win 10. Initially I made dual boot with Mint. Comparison is... I don't even have words. On mint it simply boots under 1 minute and works fluidly and flawlessly. Basic stuff, you know - Internet, RU-clip, spreadsheets, and so on. Runs cool. No fan. Win 10 boots exactly up to its name. 10 minutes. Fan whines on 100% from the very first moment it starts, and you can use it as auxiliary heater for your house. A usage experience was like a minute from mouse click to response. Of course swap runs furiously and continously. Buddy said: get rid of this shit. So I did. Since very long time my favourite windows are those I can actually open to let fresh air in.

    Ms don't care about bugs anymore. For letting kg time. Neither other companies. Remember the times when game was released and no weekly patches because it just works? Bit today's culture is damaging, think about for a sec. Lot of people feel disappointed if app they install in their phone don't have weekly updates. But what that means? I mean. If weekly update means bug fixes don't it mean that your software is released broken to begin with? It used to be frown upon to, but now is encouraged. Put two plus two together. Dumb majority. I lost hope years ago

    At this point people are not trolling you anymore. Let your kid grow up with a dad bro. I know you say your size isn't the issue... but it is. Even if you had another legitimate reason for this episode, I guarantee you that it would not have been triggered if you were in shape and not panting from standing on a ladder. I honestly say this with love, because you have inspired me in many ways you don't imagine. Don't read this (if you do) and say "yeah i know" or shame/guilt yourself about it. Just own up to the reality, and fix it. Don't wait for inspiration or motivation. Don't make videos on your weight loss, or anything. Just fucking do it. The ONLY reason or motivation you need is your family, and hearing the horror in your wife's voice in this video.

    Jerry, take care of yourself. if you need to clean your gutters, make yourself a custom gutter cleaning tool. take measurements of the gutters and once that is done, use the tool to get the leaves out of the gutter while you're safely on the ground. Especially after a period of rain.

    NT3.51 and NT4 and last solid was 2k. All 64bit after broke win as not win compatible more, like might as well switching to linux or ios as same thing. Ms shuld have switched cpu mode in 80186... I ran my 80286 in other mode, was lightning faster like a Mac... ;) Used special d.o.s for it, games ran lightning faster in it then. Even on cyrix. Every update makes it slower, as more code and bloated gui get bigger. The vista gui mixed with old are ugly, old gui are nicer and more to point thus faster. I stopped buying win pc after win8, worst c l fx ever. As not compatible with old software, and virtual 16bit machine brakes on updates so i ditched that also. Bought a i8700 with gtx1080 for one game use only, it on a 0.3mbit mobile link, no updates arrives... Ms spyware get nothing. Make your own os, you got the know how.

    This possibly explains why my PC has been running like absolute dogshit since the last windows update. CPU is constantly in heavy use but it's only showing 2-3% being used in both resource monitor and task manager. Making using music production software a fucking nightmare because nothing I do opens more CPU cycles. Shutting down superfluous services, unnecessary programs, nothing gets it from running like molasses. More frustrating is that it will then randomly go back to normal with zero consistency making me want to pull my hair out.
