This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

No, sh*t, Sherlock

I've knee-deep in upgrading system to Win10, and it's mostly going fine --- much smoother than I expected.

The process failed with this spectacularly unhelpful error message.

I mean, really.
