Default Re: In Which We Brag About Our Petty Accomplishments

We've had this stupid sea of river rock right that you have to walk across to get to the back yard for, like, ever.

It's stupid and a pain, but I was able to ignore it until recently, when it seemed to start bothering Zsa Zsa more. So I made a quick and dirty walkpath with concrete pavers and some extraneous edging logs we had in the backyard. It's pretty half assed, and I'm probably going to pull it apart and upgrade/re-do at a later date, but it's supposed to snow in the next couple days so I wanted to get it done before then. (It's like 80F today, though.)

Anyway, janky and half assed as it is, the dogs love it. They love it so much they're wanting to go outside every ten minutes or so.

An update to Windows 10 on my MacBook Air stuck at 19% for the better part of a day, and nothing--shutting down the Internet, quitting "Settings," quitting Windows, restarting the entire computer--could dislodge it. So I googled how to fix Windows Update, downloaded a troubleshooting app from Windows Support, ran that (which uninstalled the most recent update, and fixed a few things), and then started to download the new update again. It stuck at "100% downloaded," this time, and stayed that way overnight. In the office this morning, I ran the troubleshooting app one more time, and this time, the update downloaded and installed without a problem.

I'd blame the Windows 10 (on by default) peer-to-peer update process.
