But srsly, you're sitting there, writing stuff, and suddenly... THIS FUCKING WINDOW RANDOMLY POPS UP SAYING YOU'VE GOT 15MIN
Don't they have principles of some sort in compsci and robotics where the user must retain rights to override the machine at any time, ever? Isn't it a bit of an ethical (not to mention, PRACTICAL) violation to deprive an intelligent user of a dumb fucking machine the right to control when and if it does things? I mean, seriously, this is like IN YOUR FACE rude -- for no necessary reason, it randomly tells me, without any warning, that the computer is going to shut off. No, not because of a software glitch, or some safety concerns, no. It's just randomly going to restard. To install a fucking update. And you have no choice. Ever.
And I just lost like 20 tabs of papers I took all this time to find... fuck you, whatever idiot decided this automatic restart without override thing was a good idea. IT'S NOT.
I've deactivated that shit on my own computer, but lack privileges/desire to fiddle with the innards of the one in the lab. Perhaps that's a mistake. Sigh.
