The right time is never

This is a geek rant. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I was playing with my computer earlier - a heavily 3D piece of gaming in an Arcade Stylee, when Windows Update decided it wanted to reboot my machine/ While it was willing to let me do it later, it insists on asking me again every 10 minutes or so.

A lesson for Microsoft then - if I'm running an application full-screen, especially if it's not in my video adapaters primary mode, there is a time to swap away from that and ask me to reboot. That time is never. I said I'd do it later, I will. Stop bugging me about it.

Especially when I'm trying to manouver a virtual Porsche 911, and the update in question is only Windows Genuine Advatage. Trust me enough to let me finish what I'm doing - I'll get back to you when I'm ready

'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin killed

What the obituary fails to record is whether Steve was molesting the poor thing at the time...

"I've stuck me finger up it's arse - 'E doesn't like that!"
