Then it must have been a minor meme.

The Blu was delivered today. I'll go so far as to say that USPS is attempting to scam Amazon, by claiming to have stayed within the 2-day delivery window when they sure as hell did not. I'm kind of glad I called about it. Not only does it hack me off as a customer of both outfits when that happens (waaay too often lately), but Amazon is paying them an agreed upon rate for 2-day delivery. Not 2-day fakery.

So I watched Wonder Woman in 3D tonight. The dimensional effect is usually subtle. And Jenkins never plays with the Z axis, at lest not that I noticed.

Still, I liked the movie better than I did the first time I watched. I've written often about how a second viewing often helps a film (at least it often heightens my opinion if it).

In the 1960s when I was but a slip of a lad, my favorite super heroes were The Flash, Wonder Woman and Spiderman.

I had fun. Thanks for reading!

The Future Unreels will also lose all its images on the same day. But just think about how many images Jedi has on Photobucket, and the other posters here.

I'm only here to vent. Ignore this post.

I have an ASUS laptop that I acquired in 2014. I upgraded Win 8.1 to Win 10 v1507. I then cloned my drive to an SSD. It successfully updated to v1511, but has stubbornly resisted every attempt to update the OS since then.

I just spent my third all-day (8 hours) session trying everything recommended on the various forums and tech pages that MS offers. Once again, to no avail. But now my version is not supported with security updates...sucks.

I could spend $190 for a retail download of Win 10 Pro (like I got because I had Win 7 Pro on my desktop)...but what if it still wouldn't install on a reformatted SSD? You can't get your money back.

At this moment I want to remove everything Microsoft fm every computer I have. But I rely on Office for work, and I don't think Adobe Creative cloud is available for Unbuntu.

I'm literally feeling sick, and I'm getting ready to go stream Lost in Space (2018) on Netflix.

This is rambling and makes no sense. I was just typing.

In conclusion:

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watched the first two episodes of the great-looking mindless reboot of Lost in Space.

If you've already upgraded to windows 10 you DO NOT need to pay for a new copy of WIndows 10. WIndows 10 will activate fine once you inztall it again. Microsoft offers the iso's on their website. So you can do a fresh install to the latest build. Or download the latest build and update to it that way. Just dont pay for something you already have.

I have Win 10 Home on the ASUS and it would be nice to have Win 10 Pro on there. I had Win 7 Pro on my desktop, so it updated to Win 10 Pro. You have control over when downloads can be added, etc that you don't have with Home.

But I have a few other things to try before I would stoop to buying the more powerful version for a second machine.

Oh that's easy. Easy upgrade to windows 10 Pro. Enable Preview Builds. That upgrades you to Win10pro without having to re-install. Other thing you'd have to do is install Windows 7 Pro "activate" it and then run the upgrade to windows 10 via usb or download. Then you have a proper Windows 10 Pro activated device.

Post Re: The Crew - If you think you're part of it, then you are.

But, Ace, the main problem I'm facing is that nothing I've tried while following dozens of suggestions on the internet has ever allowed my ASUS laptop to update past Win 10 v 1511. It did one update, and then it has failed to update on every one of over 60 occasions (that I've counted) since 2016. Now MS doesn't support that version of Win 10 with security updates.

My other two Win 10 machines are still getting security updates because they are at Win 10 v1703. But neither of them will update to 1709.

So I have three machines that are currently stuck. The only way forward may be to clean install Win10 (whatever version the individual machine qualifies for) which will wipe out everything on the drive and i'll have to rebuild it all over again.

I knwo this isn't required. But what I'm saying is that none of the choices using the ISO for updating works. it fails on reboot. "The installation failed in the SAFE-OS phase with an error during BOOT operation" is the message the ASUS gives me. The desktop tells me it failed for an "unknown" reason. (Yeah, imagine that!). And the HP laptop gave no reason for failure. It just doesn't update, and rolls back to the earlier installation every time. In fact, all three machines roll back to the previous installation. Always after nearly an hour of downloading and setting up. It's not made to easily tell you what went wrong, and I was too tired to try the tracing interpreting virtual gadget that's built into the system. But you have to use an elevated command line.

MS has made the operating system much more of a pain in the ass than any previous Windows. Is it any wonder that they're losing market share in newly purchased laptops? But what to they do? They retrench and make it even worse of an environment for users while chirping how they're making it all better!

Oh doing a clean install doesnt wipe out your data. It tells you there's already a version of windows installed and that it will move everything over to the Windows.old folder. And that should be able to keep your data while doing a fresh install to the latest version of windows.

I must admit that after seeing all 10 episodes, it isn't as mediocre at the end as it seemed at the beginning.

It's certainly better than the miserable, silly Irwin Allen show that I suffered through once in a while back in the 1960s. I bought the Blu-ray set though. Why? Because I had never seen any episode from the 3rd season. Wasn't any better. The thing is, you can riff to the first season shows. By the third season it's not even riff-worthy.

The 2018 is superior although not as humorous.

It's nice to be thought of!

If the first wave of audiences was baffled, it might have been because “2001” had not yet created the taste it required to be appreciated.

You know, all three of the personal favorite films that I've decided to rate share some aspects.
1) Ivan's Childhood (Tarkovsky, 1962)
2) 2001: a Space Odyssey (Kubrick, 1968)
3) Rocket Science (Blitz, 2007)

Not a one is mainstream. Not a one rushes through to tell its story. Not a one is like any other film I've ever seen. That hadn't occurred to me until I read the Chiasson article. Thanks for the link.
