Computer Memes...

    So we have a funny pictures thread, but what I'm thinking of doesn't quite go there. My opening meme is one I created after the exact circumstance described, and it's one of the irritations of Windows 10: if you leave your PC unattended during off hours too long, it will automatically apply updates and restart. What I was working on took me quite a while to create (it's wedding related) and the site didn't allow me to save my creation, just finish the order. So I checked with the fiance while taking a break to rest my eyes from staring at the screen, and when I returned my computer was finishing the first of two restarts necessary after installing updates. FRAP!!

    So anyway, if what you have is simply funny, post it here if you like but it likely will see more traffic in the funny pictures thread, and if you just want to talk computers, there's a forum for that, but this is really more about memes relating to computers, whether humorous or, like this one, clearly not. :(

    And this is acceptable? :thumbsdowndroid:
    I think my head would explode if that happened to me, causing me to lose all that work. :maddroid:

    But, then, if any of my computers did ANYTHING involving rebooting, without my explicit instructions and approval, I'd throw it out the window.

    Oh, wait...window...window$...random reboots...tossing computers out the window anger...why don't I experience any of that nonsense? :thinking:

    Oh, of course, I only use Linux! :blushDroid: :thumbsupdroid: :p

    My desk is the cat's preferred path to the window she most often sits in. If the keyboard is left unattended, her four paw keystrokes will often destroy what I'm working on. She has even managed to unlock the screen and rotate it 180° a couple of times.

    I've got an old Compaq laptop that my son used in high school (he graduated in 2008) that runs Linux pretty respectably. I'll send it to you. :)

    Not a problem...unless micro$oft has mucked with things in some new way I don't know about.

    Does it have a disc drive (CD or DVD)? If so, and you're up for it, look online for a current lightweight Linux distribution. (The last time I resurrected an old laptop, about 4 or 5 years ago, I put Bodhi on it, and it flew! But last I heard, Bodhi's maintainer had moved on to other projects.) Make sure it has a 'live' feature. Burn a disc, reboot the old laptop with the disc in, and then follow its 'live' instructions (nothing is installed on or done to your laptop). If everything (sound, wifi, etc.) works--as it should with virtually any modern Linux--go ahead and install it. Or not. Choice, that's what Linux is all about.

    If you need any help, pop in to the Linux thread and ask away! :D

    Sorry for the loss of your mom. :(

    If you are getting the incompatible hardware warning, just ignore it. It might take a little extra effort to load the right drivers on the back end of the upgrade, but in 99% of the cases I've seen that the upgrade goes through and the computer (be it laptop or desktop) works just fine and dandy.

    Or https://linuxmint.com/download.php :D

    As I've said elsewhere, we're 100% Linux here (Mint and Ubuntu), And don't miss the interminable reboots at all.

    Never cared for micro$ucks myself. Used Unix and Apple before Linux was available. Got away from computers for some time then was dragged back into the fold by being asked to help a Mac dealer (when that was the only way you could legally repair and/or resell them) in his retail/repair shop.
