Biden lost Texas when he said he was ending fracking and fossil fuels.

Why are you sneaking in and out of New Mexico this week?

Not really "sneaking" but with the big LED sign just inside the border makes me more heightened aware that one is potentially exposed to being trapped or something if they ever did a "surge" because of some politician's orders from Santa Fe.

It's been to help someone get his shop building decluttered and functional. We put a bunch of shelving together, and since he's got a decent fast internet, I left a couple of computers there to get all the Windows updates done, since that would have taken years on the slow connections here.

I'm going to haul another computer to their place in Midland next week to do the same - about a year's worth of Windows updates that otherwise would have taken months to download.

So you get the benefit of a lot of updates while helping someone else out. Very cool.

Yeah. The big reason that no updates have been done on those computers for well over a year is because the network here is slow as molasses.

So you get further behind and when you do get updates, it takes even longer.

Yes. It becomes an endless treadmill of updates that can never complete.

Unless you can get to a high speed Internet.

Or haul computers into town as needed.

Weekly for windows. Monthly at the least. They have big Tuesday updates. For someone who claims to not be social, you have a lot of helpful friends.

Well, maybe I am more picky / choosing. Or maybe birds of a feather flock together.
