I was at The Scottish Place to pick up some lunch.
I placed my order,
and while waiting in line,
I noticed the telltale signs of Microsoft Windows:
keep on being your special snowflake self.
But in all seriousness,
who set this up?
If you are going to run any computer in a public space,
I would hope those setting it up would run the bare minimum for the service required
(and in this case,
just the operating system and whatever program it is that runs the display)
and remove everything else.
for whatever left is running,
is there not some Windows setting to just have it automatically reboot upon an error?
Or simply not display warning messages like this on the display meant for public viewing?
I have to wonder how long this message has been here,
waiting for someone,
to select an option
(or to restart, reboot or reinstall).
I wonder if management even cares?
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
