Things you don't need to see on a Monday morning
The office routine starts the same way most Mondays: Clear the overdue bills off the chair and sit down. Look at the computer. OK. The virus scan had run over the weekend without incident.
But there, on the screen, over by the time indicator. What was that?
Uh oh. Updates available.
Mr. Gates must have decided that I needed something new on my computer.
The problem with updates is that one risks much by ignoring them -- and loses considerable time by downloading them. Unless this is your first time here, you are well aware that I don't need any help from Mr. Gates in order to waste time.
But I bit the bullet and clicked the shield.
And what did I find out? Mr. Gates was tired of waiting for me to download IE7 voluntarily.
So now I have it. And it does not seem to work. And I have work to do today and court in the suburbs early this afternoon. So no time to play now.
That's my nominee for something I didn't need to see this morning. What's yours? (Keep it clean.)
