Feigning normality since 1973
Good old Microsoft
Filed in: Computers.
For a moment before posting this, I had a feeling I'd written about it before, but Google revealed nothing... So here I present to you the results of trying to update a PC using Windows Update:
"Security Update for Windows (KB839645) Could not be installed because of an unknown error."
Perhaps they'd care to elaborate?
Also on the subject of broken stuff, my PC crashed earlier on today. After rebooting, I found that Mozilla's FireFox and Thunderbird had both completely lost their settings. Not only that, but Thunderbird had completely lost all of my email. The mail was, I'm glad to say, still on the disk, but the configuration file which told Thunderbird where it was was snafu. This appears to be because Thunderbird keeps the file permanently open while running, and it wasn't closed properly during the crash.
Fortunately I was able to recover the data and get my email back, but I doubt the average user would be able to do that.
