Very Public Computer Errors

Everyone knows that electronics don't work perfectly all the time, but we don't expect them to not work in an official or commercial setting. It must be weird to have to say "well it looks like we should turn the road signs off and on again." Here are some excruciating moments of tech support gore for some more things not working as they should.

So what do you do for fun? I install every version of Windows on a virtual machine and drew dicks where applicable. 

Following up on his 2011 his "Chain of Fools" video, in which YouTuber Andrew Tait installed every major version of Windows, Tait returns to the experiment to install three additional Windows updates and draw dick pictures where he can. 

This is one of those time machine videos, where you can be whisked back to a time when colors were a revolution and Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time game was the absolute best. Viva la Windows 3.1.

So, that's what the voice of God sounds like then. Any funeral of mine that fails to play this song, is an outright disgrace, and you better believe I'll do nothing short of 'roll over in my grave.'

What a time to be alive...via The Seattle Times:

A few days after Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public last year, Teri Goldstein’s computer started trying to download and install the new operating system.

The update, which she says she didn’t authorize, failed. Instead, the computer she uses to run her Sausalito, Calif., travel-agency business slowed to a crawl. It would crash, she says, and be unusable for days at a time.

“I had never heard of Windows 10,” Goldstein said. “Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update.”

When outreach to Microsoft’s customer support didn’t fix the issue, Goldstein took the software giant to court, seeking compensation for lost wages and the cost of a new computer.

There was never any hope in avoiding it Erik Flom. Brutal truth of the matter is that when Windows 10 updates want to install, they will f**cking install. Tis life, man.
