Rich people won't kill the rest of us off until there are really good robots.

Well.  Microsoft.

In their defense, Chrome is such crap nowadays that it's kind of a wash.

The other shop . . . had an automatic Windows 10 update that broke their internet completely.  I had to try to diagnose and fix it via text messages to a very non-technical person.

I sent YT down there instead and told him (based on the googles) to erase all of Firefox's history, cookies, and cache.

Turns out that in the current versions of Firefox, that's apparently a big BIG pain in the ass.


:doh: to ALL of them

JFC, Edge.  YOU HAD ONE JOB.
One job, one problem. See how much better it's gotten?
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

It could be argued that google itself is a virus.

It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

So MS has a browser called Edge?  I was afraid that U2 was forcing music on us again.  :shock:

It could be argued that google itself is a virus.

Somebody used the term "Google ecosystem" while we were discussing how to deal with limited Internet bandwidth aboard ship. I thought that was really interesting. It is valuable to think about Google as a whole community of varied pathogens with different modes of infection and different levels of virulence.
