I have a new measure of IT literacy, thanks Andrew. When you carry out the task that you were trying to and it fails because windows is not updated, you check windows update. The statement ‘453 important updates’ means you mate is ignoring the prompt. Have you any idea how hard it is to apply this many in one batch? They contradict each other so you have to reboot a dozen times. I feel a training course coming on.
This morning when I left the flat I heard a noise like water rushing through a pipe. I checked my plumbing and found no defects so went about my day. This afternoon, whilst rebuilding laptops, I received a knock on the door. No less than three fireman which, given I am on the second floor, is a concern. Apparently the ground floor on the opposite side had flooded badly, guess I know where the water was going. The firemen told me that they had trashed the first floor door and not found the cause so they were looking to my vacant neighbours. I offer all respect to the emergency services, well two out of three ain’t bad, but they are a little keystone.
They decided that they couldn’t hear the water leaking and were about to leave when one of the three observed that they had isolated the water. So they were listening outside the door for a leak that they had already stopped. Obviously these guys are trained in fire, water is the antithesis of this so maybe its a step too far? Bless them they destroyed doors on the first and second floor then found the leak on the top floor. I guess it’s like the question of ‘where did you last have it’ in response to the loss of something. We always start the wrong end, bet my neighbours are wishing they started at the top!
