I'm amazed at how frequently things go wrong. In my recent experiences 80% of the time. Here are some details: - Failure - Had new garage door installed. Tech shorted out a wire to my alarm system which took out the phone line for 3 days (phone...
An interesting article on automated RCA by MicroSoft: https://sdtimes.com/memory-corruption-issues/microsoft-root-cause-analysis-vulnscan/ It's only a matter of time before this also becomes the norm for organizational process failures as digitialization of...

So the last post talked about how MicroSoft doesn't seem to care about the damage they do to your computer with their upgrades.Watch out for the October update!
I've complained before about MicroSoft destroying one of my computers with an upgrade. It evidently wasn't compatible with my hardware and wiped out the SSD memory. Now they've confirmed they couldn't care less. With the October 2018 update some people are...
