Update - and then...

So that all went pretty well. Madam Mayor took tea with a few of the Lions, then met our oldest resident in her flat (she - the resident - was thrilled) and we went on to another of the developments whcich the M had never visited before. She specifically asked for an invitation to see the rest at a later date. She also expressed great interest in the Message in a Bottle scheme and we are to set up a press photo op of us presenting her with a bottle in the Mayor's parlour or something.

But this morning everything went pear-shaped. Well, perhaps not everything. When I switched off the computer yesterday it had auto-updates. They load down and the computer automatically switches itself off when they are finished. Switch on again this morning and stages 1 & 2 configure, but stage 3 starts, and then the computer reboots itself - and stage 3 starts configuring all over again. Then the computer reboots and so on. I tried pulling the plug, I tried starting in safe mode, I practically threw the damn thing out of the window ...

Fortunately I have the laptop, but the work I want is on the other machine!!!

I cringe when I see the word UPDATES. I immediately think PERIL.
