Think about it: Imagine Anthony Hopkins playing the role of a young teenager. Sure, he's a really talented actor, but it would just be really...odd... Unless the movie is supposed to be a comedy or something.

I'm sure Barbara Hudson will chime in and label me as hateful and bigoted, but what can you do.

And then Hopkins will play her in the inevitable biopic.

Microsoft is that - The Thing That Won't Die. No matter how much it is whacked, or whacks itself, it just gets up again like a zombie with even more wounds spouting pus over anyone who goes near it and keeps on walking and trampling with empty eye sockets and flailing arms, just like in a horror movie.

Damn. Missed this bit of good news in the blog in my previous post:

Microsoft Update Catalog
The Microsoft Update Catalog website is being updated to remove the ActiveX requirement so it can work with any browser. Currently, Microsoft Update Catalog still requires that you use Internet Explorer. We are working to remove the ActiveX control requirement, and expect to launch the updated site soon.

In addition, from the same blog post:

Over time, Windows will also proactively add patches to the Monthly Rollup that have been released in the past.

Probably meaning telemetry and all the other things people have explicitly not installed (like Silverlight - for which "patches" appear in WU, even though I don't have it installed).

And liberal groups are not attacking Trump with similar tactics?

That's too much like work, its far easier to just replay everything he actually says. It goes viral on its own...

And then replay the videos of everything he denies ever saying. (Roll 212 !)
