My PC Wants a Reset (and So Do I)
February 02, 2010
Every few minutes up pops a little message telling me it wants to shutdown and restart. Strangely, my answer does not change over the span of a few minutes. I cancel the dialog repeatedly - to the accompaniment of an incrementally load, and exponentially less socially acceptable, cry of complaint. But it just keeps coming back.
It’s not just the intrusion that upsets me. It’s the ludicrously-named “progress” bar that counts down to the moment when it will just restart itself anyway. That’s just rude. And it is certainly not progress. How is it possibly progress to close down all my applications, and discard my edits, for the heinous crime of needing to visit the bathroom?
This is going to end badly.
