I am super frustrated.with this steaming pile of turd software that MS calls windows 10. These auto updates always hit at the wrong time, when one is actually tring to do work, and it always breaks something. I am trying to add a pc to a domain. An update that takes 30 min to install, refuses to let me do anything until it reboots. I am an hour and a half from home and stuck $#&^%*?@ with this so the customer can get right to work in the morning with little to no interruption. It is now 5:05pm..

Just overheard:

"A large group of Karens is called a Homeowners' Association."

So true...

When I was younger, I used to think EVERYONE else was as horny as I was all the time and they were just hiding it to be proper. This illusion was aided by my friend circle, who were much like me. Because it was all I knew, it's what I expected in everyone.

I suspect this is what goes on with those people that presumes EVERYONE else is racist, sexist, transphobic, etc. Secretly, THEY'RE the racists (,etc), so to absolve themselves, they project their own faults and blame others. #doingthework

@Baron_Rotterdam Those are commie tactics. Fascist tactics would be armed groups going around fending off rioters and looters to stop them from destroying property.

maybe someone has an.idea.on what to.do to fix this issue... I fired up a vpn (nord) and it used 10Mbps of my 15Mbps connection as overhead.. this doesn't sound right..I tested this multiple times with different settings.
My pc is a ryzen 2700x and 32 GB ram.. i should have no issues.. Granted, I have not tested on my linux box.. This is on Windows 10 which I hate, but have to use for work.

To force the majority to do something, in order to appease the few is the ultimate selfishness.

To violate the rights of many in order to please the few is the ultimate tyranny.

To make a man chose between two laws so that he is forced to break the law in order to comply with the other, proves the government has gotten out of control of the people.

Thank goodness Windows.10 has powershell baked in.. i can manually uninstall bad updates.. If MS would quit beta testing on their corporate users, we wouldn't have updates that break printing and random apps.. (looking at you, kb4560960 and feature.update 2004)

I read so many post the explain how to 'host your own...' and they stress security and such. The key to most of those tutorials are that you setup your hosting on another person's computer/server.

I would like to see more posts about hosting on your own hardware and how to do things without relying on a third party.

You want security? Host on your own metal and silicon.
