[03:43:40] <cmn32480> there are two
[03:43:46] <cmn32480> one from em, one from gewg.
[03:44:27] <SoyGuest57239> oh'
[03:45:32] <SoyGuest57239> if I remember correctly I told you about The Register story based on MS's advice on how to disable it
[03:45:44] <SoyGuest57239> but the biz thing is a new thing, although obv related
[03:45:59] <SoyGuest57239> I just merged it
[03:46:11] <cmn32480> yes
[03:46:24] <cmn32480> and there was a story published here on the 9th giving some info as well
[03:46:37] <cmn32480> saw it yesterday, but can't find the link
[03:46:47] <SoyGuest57239> oh ok you didn;'t post the MS disable advice
[03:47:09] <SoyGuest57239> it's all nice and confusing

[03:47:27] <SoyGuest57239> myself, I just disabled that KB winupdate on my Win 7 machine
[03:47:32] <cmn32480> from p666 on the 9th
[03:47:39] <SoyGuest57239> ah
[03:47:48] <cmn32480> my machines are all too old to run win10 :-)
[03:48:02] <SoyGuest57239> like that would stop that shit
[03:48:03] <SoyGuest57239> btw
[03:48:22] <cmn32480> it refuses to install
[03:48:31] <SoyGuest57239> you wouldn't believe the amount of times I either clicked or narrowly avoided clicking the nagware Win10 popup on my Win7 machine
[03:48:41] <SoyGuest57239> they make the tiny X for closing it so small
[03:48:45] <SoyGuest57239> it's like a hitbox
[03:49:06] <SoyGuest57239> just remember you have my phone number so if you get scared you can call me
[03:49:19] <cmn32480> lol
[03:50:02] <cmn32480> I appreciate it. I think I'll be ok
[03:50:18] <SoyGuest57239> it's for the unthinkable
[03:50:26] <SoyGuest57239> govt collapse but cell towers still work
[03:50:43] <cmn32480> ahhh
[03:50:49] <cmn32480> I thought you meant the win 10 thing
[03:51:05] <cmn32480> and I was thinking... "I've been in IT nearly 20 years..."
