Windows 10: First one with windows 10 anniversary update
Looks like the update has decided I'm not using my PC at the moment so has started the update - I can always start-up a laptop to continue work if I want to so will let it carry on I suppose, though the laptop will likely take a while to update it's normal updates
Ever heard of TOR browser --use it all the time -- I actually LIKE a lot of BBC progs and when I'm outside the UK it works brilliantly - even in a Car I can get BBC 5 Footie commentaries on Internet --we have on the whole here fantasic Internet trhat most of the UK would DIE for !! wifi even works with good speed in a car in SW, Iceland - Reykjavik metro region (if any Icelandic area can actually have a "Metro size city" !!).
To make it work --use portable Router to create access point .
I use this one
D-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Portable Router with Charger
D-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Portable Router with Charger: Amazon.co.uk: Computers Accessories
logon with TOR to your private access point
now spoof IP to route via UK
then Set mobile phone to Wifi using access point
logon to BBC Iplayer --radio
Output phone headphone into AUX in on Car radio.
Job done -- no VPN's neded etc.
@ UK users I do actually Buy a UK TV licence when I'm staying for a period in the UK so I'm not basically "Swindling the system" --just getting my money's worth. !!!
No need I never leave the UK these days - health reasons mean no insurance or flying at present
Interesting factoid with the upgrade installer - I run two monitors and my default monitor is actually monitor two. The update started on main monitor and is now on extended monitor which is of course monitor one. I did not have monitor one powered so just looked like a blank monitor part way through install.
If you use multi monitors, have them all switched on to update
It's now switched back
As always, we will be the last to get it, Wednesday the 3rd is when OZ will get it.
On final lap logged back in now have a few patronising messages to click through. I'm protected in an online world and there's a start button to press...
Hi there and especially @Barman58
still have a few gigs -- I'm "Semi-Retired" these days - but it's still great to have some gigs for 2 / 3 days a week for a little while -- gets me out of the house for a bit etc.
Even in Nordic countries State Pension isn't the best to live on so a few extra "pennies, euros, dollars, Kroner " or even roubles is always welcome !!!.
Two things though I do notice though in recent years --a) Airports get increasingly Hassle filled -- even though most are now Giant Shopping Malls with "Flying attached" as an add-on and b) kids are hideously ill-behaved compared with my day --not sure if this is just bad parenting or Society in general not regarding Manners or respect of other people's space as important any more. I won't go on about that as that's a huge whole other issue.
Strangely enough though whatever people say about the French in general they do seem to have relatively well mannered kids !!!
Hopefully you still can get out and about --loved Wales in the Euros recently -- and we knocked out the English - still got souvenirs from that trip.
Retired from the grind
Exactly. They stagger it out. to keep the load down. I forget what the start time is, since it has been a long time when Microsoft has pushed out a major upgrade to users.
Watermark's gone, I figure I have it!
If they wanna add more to it tomorrow, bring it on!

I haven't been able to find a definitive answer to this. Many are calling this an 'update', whereas a few are mentioning 'upgrade'.
