Microsoft Update Alleviates But Does Not Fix Responsiveness Problem

Microsoft swears that the two patches they have released fix an ongoing problem caused by Windows Update:

Microsoft Corp. said that patches for a Windows Update lockup problem do fix the flaw, even though users still see their computers’ CPUs maxed out at 100%.

They are wrong. At least from where I am sitting.
I installed the fixes manually two days ago. Things do seem to have improved however programs still become unresponsive from time to time. This does not seem to happen as frequently and the program does not seem to stay unresponsive for as long but the problem still occurs.
Microsoft clearly fixed part of the problem but they need to do some more followup.

On a related note…only a few more weeks until the MacBook Pro family is upgraded.

Keith, It’s a Feature Not a Bug

Olberman provides a shorter Olberman:

For, ultimately, at this hour, the entire government has failed us.

Unfortunately, Keith, it is not just at this hour.
These are for the most part the same pathetic folks who have been supporting the Iraq invasion from the beginning.
Betrayal, Keith. Nope, they are doing what governments, in particular the US government, do and seem to have always done: wage war. If not on others then on their own people.

It will never be too soon to say no to war; to say no to the thugs who would wage war.
Around the world, toss’m out!
