Weird Day On The Web

It is a Weird Day

It is a Weird Day on the Web

Does everything seem to be going hay wire for you on the web today?

Membership disappeared from the REBlogWorld site.

Formatting disappeared from The Real Estate Zebra

Mana Tulberg has a formatting issue with her Ventura County Real Estate.

Most of my sites have been really slow to access, edit and post from today.

I thought a reboot of my computer might take care of it, but no such luck.

Microsoft Updates Pushed

I decided to do a cold boot, shutdown the computer and reboot.   When I went to do this Windows informed me it had 21 updates ready for me and would do the install.   DO NOT SHUT DOWN OR TURN OFF THE POWER.

I’ve seen this before and anecdotally   noticed before that whatever Microsoft does when it sends these updates to be installed slows down all my computer functions and web access till I do the update.   Once I did the install (which took over 15 minutes to perform) and restarted.   All of my slow connections were gone.

The ReBlogWorld membership was back.   (I think that was a javascript conflict) but it was back once I rebooted and before nothing was showing up for that one.

My computer is back running very fast.   When I logged in to write this post everything came up quickly.

If you are having crazy internet and computer issues today and Microsoft pushes update to your computer for install on shutdown I would recommend you do it now.

If it makes a difference Let me know.

  1. Last night was when I had 14 updates, I thought it was a lot at the time, but didn’t really notice any issues. Today, I have no icons on my desktop. Hopefully, they fix that bug with the next round of updates.

  2. Well I have a pretty good guess what happen with RE Zebra. They run Thesis Theme as I do and there is an update out, and a lot of the css calls changed. I had the same issues, but I had mine fixed in about 10 minutes. If I never have to mess with the nav menu again it will be too soon for me. Luckily I had a slow afternoon sitting around waiting for closings from short-sales I have been waiting for going on 6 month now.

  3. I’m going to take the crazy route and call conspiracy. Microsoft gave you those errors on purpose in order to impress you with their updates and hook you on their brand!

    Note: Please don’t take me seriously.

  4. What exactly is in that photo?

  5. Brandon,

    LOL, you are first one to ever ask about one of my unique captures. It is a crushed, rusty tin can in the desert. No way of knowing how old or how long it has been there. Things last a very long time in the desert.

    When the web goes weird; it seemed an appropriate symbol for the day.
