    Hi I'm Windows and I'm going to randomly turn your computer off cause that's what I do....

    Hope you weren't doing anything important.

    Also, I'm going to install updates after I restart your computer, so you won't be able to use it for fourty minutes.

    Thanks for buying Windows!

    That's not windows. That's A) how it's set up and B ) a hardware issue. Unless you have some seriously FUBAR shit going on (Blue Screening, brick walls, etc), unprompted shutdowns are hardware. Check your fans. As to auto-update, you can turn that off, y'know.

    It's actually my hubby's computer, (but it's the only one we have right now) and he gets twitchy if I mess with his settings, and I've asked him so many times to turn off the auto update feature, but he hasn't. And it always seems to pop up the "we're going to restart your computer" box right when I've gone to the bathroom or something, and I come back to the computer restarting and spend tons of time installing updates.

    gggrrr.

    Ahhh....
    I'm sorry. :C

    My gripe:
    It's pronounced "NOO-cleer" or "noo-CLEE-ar", not "nukuler." It's pronounced "KRAHN- ik," not "crank" (WTF, there's not even an a in the word...) It's pronounced "PATH-o-jin," not "path-er- GIN."
    If you teach the class, be able to pronounce the words. It's that simple. Being raised in Odessa isn't an excuse, either, because you've seen the videos you show us WHERE THEY SAY IT RIGHT only 5 million times. SAY. IT. RIGHT.
    Especially "nuclear." People mispronouncing that word just sets my teeth on edge.

    In my case it's A. Sadly our IT department will not let us have control over that. So I have had instances where I've had a long term test running on something only to find out it quit in the middle of the night.

    Apology

    A few days ago I was complaining about the weather and many threats from tornado. Well, one went within 100 yards of my place and demolished many trees. I was scared out of my mind. I now feel like a totally freaking weak person after seeing what has happened just south of me in Alabama. I can't believe how scared those people must have been having to go through that horror. My heart goes out to everyone in the southeast US.

    I would like to take back my gripe of the day.
    I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.

    So glad you are all right, Cassandra.

    My only weather related GOTD is that I was out in the sun too long today and now I have a headache. Wah!

    We used to have a President who did that often. It was an embarrassing time to be an English teacher.

    I'm aware. I despised his illiteracy all the more because he called Midland his "hometown," which in turn made Odessa look bad. Not all West Texans are illiterate rednecks...









    Just most of 'em.
