|Oct-07-14|| ||Mating Net: Congratulations on your new found wealth Bugsy. After you're done celebrating, it's time for Hockey Season!|
|Oct-08-14|| ||WannaBe: Who are all the old fogies on the ice? That's the 2014-15 Kings team? Oy vey.|
|Oct-09-14|| ||ljfyffe: I've heard that they may finally be getting a hockey team in Toronto....But Bettman has denied the rumour.|
|Oct-11-14|| ||WannaBe: Good work people!!
|Oct-14-14|| ||WannaBe: More Fun With Math.
Paul Allen of Microsoft (And other things) donated 9M and Mark Zuckerberg & wife donated 25M towards Ebola fight. 25 Mil, that's a pretty nice size chunk of change!
According to the Wiki pages, P. Allen is worth 16.4B and Zuckerberg is worth 34B, yes BILLIONS.
If Mr. Z had donated 1 percent of his worth, it would be 340M, .1 percent would be 34M, a measely 25M is .07 percent, or .0007 of his net worth.
Maybe I'll throw in 25 cents towards the Ebola fight.
|Oct-14-14|| ||WannaBe: Did my normal second Tuesday of the month Window 7 patches, now it's saying Failed, Reverting, and it's stuck on that.|
DON'T UPDATE/PATCH WIN7.
My Win8.1 was fine after installing patches.
Will keep y'all posted.
|Oct-15-14|| ||WannaBe: Updated my home system (Win7 Pro) and had no issues. Trying to pin point which update caused my work computer (Win7 Ultimate) to not complete update/patches yesterday.|
The other work laptop (Win8.1 Pro) had no problems at all.
|Oct-15-14|| ||WannaBe: Got it narrowed down to one of the Windows Security Updates, but I don't know which KB it is yet...|
What I did was first to update the Malware definition and Email Junk Spam Filter. No problems, no reboot required.
Then I updated all the .NET framework security patches. Reboot, no issues.
Then what I left was the 8 (?) security patches. Bam, after reboot, I get the Failure, revert message on my screen.
But I had no problem with my Win7 Pro at home, so right now I guess it's only Win 7 Ultimate(??)...
Have to find another machine that have Win 7 Pro and test it out.
|Oct-15-14|| ||chancho: I got an update notification of 14 updates from Windows and then after it finished downloading, it said the download failed.|
|Oct-16-14|| ||WannaBe: Good Luck Against "Russia Time".|
|Oct-16-14|| ||WannaBe: This is very similiar, if not identical to what Martha Stewart did with her stock selling, and landed her in prison for insiders trading.|
|Oct-16-14|| ||WannaBe: Why, yes, people are <THAT> stupid.|
|Oct-16-14|| ||falso contacto: I was about to tell you that I was in for some games. You know, we are slowly heading into summertime. Thank you, captain.|
|Oct-16-14|| ||WannaBe: <falso contacto> If you want more, just let me know (here or private message on GameKnot).|
Because <technical draw> is always ready for more games. =)
|Oct-16-14|| ||WannaBe: So... After a day and half, I found the bad boy that is causing my updates to fail on Win7 Ultimate. KB2949927|
Then I found this, published a few hours ago.
|Oct-16-14|| ||WannaBe: Here is what I have, as far as settings for the work domain and my personal computers:|
1. For Windows Update, set it to "Download, but let me decide".
2. Microsoft usually release the patches second Tuesday of the month, unless it's something very very critical.
3. Wait until second Friday of the month to do your patches, let the idiots like me bang our heads against the wall first. =))
|Oct-17-14|| ||WannaBe: Wow, how time really flies, it was 25 years ago when earthquake struck and delayed the game.|
|Oct-18-14|| ||OhioChessFan: I had the very same thought, and remember the instant I found out about it. 25 years ago......amazing.|
|Oct-18-14|| ||technical draw: Thanks for that link <WannaBe>. It certainly is bad news for me. Germany of all places!|
|Oct-18-14|| ||WannaBe: <OhioChessFan> I was junior in high school when it happened. Sitting in front of the TV waiting for the game to start in the late afternoon.|
Then the TV (picture) started shaking, like mad. Quite unbelievable...
|Oct-18-14|| ||OhioChessFan: I walked into the bowling alley on league night and asked the guy behind the desk how the game was going. When he said an earthquake had hit and cancelled the game, I thought he was joking.|
|Oct-19-14|| ||WannaBe: This is great!
|Oct-20-14|| ||WannaBe: <ANNIVERSARY> 10 years!!! Good thing both CG.com and I have not seeked a divorce lawyer. If I do, do I get half of Mr. Freeman's money?|
However. Since joining CG.com, my ELO have gone up exactly 130 pts. At this rate, I will be GM in the year 2414.
|Oct-20-14|| ||technical draw: Congrats <WannaBe>!|
|Oct-22-14|| ||WannaBe: Use Apple Pay + Bank of America?
Did Apple test this out before they went live?
