Then you need to take control of the update process. Set it to "Notify me" and update manually before taking it anywhere, and reboot. Then it won't install updates when you don't expect it to or leave you with the process half finished waiting for a reboot.

Re: All they would have to do would be to allow the updates to be optional
That would be the "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" option.
Re: I will remove The Register from my RSS
OOOh! I bet they're shitting bricks! Handbag icon please!!
Re: pisses off the tolerance crowd.
Yeah, those tolerant bastards, with their lack of prejudice. What a bunch of cunts!
If it's an image
then why does it get executed?
Re: no substance
Ah, you were at those dodgy meetings! Well, if you say there's no cause for concern that's good enough for me!!
Or don't buy a phone with an OS that doesn't get security updates.
Re: Could be a good way to get out of a wedding...
Of course it must be that the woman was ugly. Whoever heard of a stupid man?
I KNEW IT!
Overeaction mods! That was some quality banter you just deleted.
You missed the bit that made it newsworthy.
Man changes software then tweets about it.
Re: In Another Case
Hey, excuse me! There's childish bickering going on here! Don't interrupt!!
I want to so see whether Craig will uncheck "post anonymously" for his next post!
Re: Now we have Capitalist chips.
Really? So 99% of them do the work but the special 1% take all the credit?
Re: unless you're a non-dom
non-dom is just bullshit and you know it! I have an affection for the place my Dad grew up? Yeah, that's significant, don't pay any tax.
Re: and a much lesser tendency for silent errors.
Re: The problem with JS is it is not a particularly well designed language.
And annoyingly it's a lot better than a lot of the 'well designed' ones... (once you learn which chunks of it to avoid.)
Re: 3 of the first 5 comments
I believe this is, the icon your looking four....
Re: unless they draw power directly from the force or something stupid like that :)
Indeed, that would really threaten the credibility of the piece. Just because the force can lift a little starship out a swamp doesn't mean it could have enough power to make a magic laser!
re: More firearms on piles of cash would be fine, though...
Really? You think guns are fine but images of attractive humans are bad? Are you American perchance?
(Don't know what you're moaning about anyway, there's no image on the top of the story on my browser. Is that NoScript working it's magic?)
Re: you might not have space for actual news
Yeah, I expect your servers nearly full now, what with how long you've been around.
Anyway, I have to read every article, no matter how irrelevant to my interests, so if you could keep it to stuff I'm interested in that'd be great! Thanks!!
monumental collection of slack-jawed internet mumblings
That's you that is.
re: Or to put it another way.
Here's another choice that you can make when shopping for a phone.
I knew it! Fucking Micro$haft!!!!!
If I know something, and you don't, then you must be stupid!
Re: Do adverts actually work?
No, of course not. It's just a fun way for corporations to get rid of all that pesky money.
Re: instead apply a default, potentially less secure, group policy.
So if you have you windows configured with appropriate default group policy this isn't a problem?
Yeah, these days you get arrested and thrown into jail if you say you're English!
Re: Don't any of you have wives, girlfriends, both?
Yeah, you need tits to work a vacuum cleaner.
Re: When was there last a 'big kerfuffle'?
I don't know when the last one was, here's one from March last year: https://revolution-news.com/protesters-demand-freedom-julian-assange-ecuadorian-embassy-london/ Looks quite kerfuffly in the photo.
Re: just shoot him
Ok, only if we can shoot you first. No, you can't have a trial.
Re: Why does it cost so much per day
Is it because occasionally there's a big kerfuffle outside that requires lots of plods and what your looking at is an average and not an invoice that says "£10,000 x 960 days"?
@Charlie Clark, Once the media fall out of love with Twitter
Not really. The media aren't interested in wrestling tweets, certainly not from a promotion that only works in Bristol, but Bristol wrestling fans are. This isn't a way of generating column inches or time on the news, it's a way of communicating directly to the fans without using the traditional media. It is PR, but direct to the consumer.
Re: get instant reactions to live events
Or, if you're promoting a show, it's a good way of trying to drum up support. We went to a wrestling show recently where one of the story lines was started a couple of days before on Twitter by one of the male wrestlers claiming that one of the women fancied him, which she was not happy about! It's a good way of getting the fans involved before the event and keeping stories going.
I think his sarcasm is really cool.
Re: It's the owner of the website using Google to track you.
But you have one GA cookei, and so google can track you across all sites with Google Analytics. The site owner only sees your interaction with their site.
Re: your plan falls apart for probably %80+ of the people visiting this site
And for the 20% who just use windows 8 like we used 7 before it, and xp before that, it's good to know. Ta!
Why the dig at IE?
I got the last flash patch (for IE) as part of Windows Update.
Re: No, like I refuse to contemplate the fact that you actually read this bit...
Yeah, I read that bit, it comes right after:
Go enjoy and become the product, the victim, whilst you wave your e-penis/e-vagina at all those poor saps who's life is so empty that they are interested in your meaningless existence.
You can add "of course I'm nothing special" after that, but I'm afraid it doesn't stop you sounding like a pompous prick.
Could you contemplate getting over yourself for a second?
Re: Can Germany be trusted with privacy?
They haven't invaded anyone lately. That in itself is suspicious!! They're up to something!!!
re: See icon -->
I think this one is probably most appropriate..
Re: significantly under-competes
"under performs compared to" surely? What does "under-compete" mean? Doesn't try hard enough?
Re: it sounds like a pretty heartfelt apology.
But if you spend 5 minutes reading here: http://adamsteinbaugh.com/2015/01/29/craig-brittain-settles-with-ftc-isanybodydown-david-blade-story-changes/ you'll see he is clearly full of shit.
Listen to the white boys whine. Did someone threaten your privilege?
Re: I've never seen a single case of racism or sexism relating to hiring
Oh, that's ok then. I guess all the women and black people are just not very good at IT.
You are sure that you can see the mental processes of the people hiring, yeah?
Re: Everyone is terrified that if they hire a black person they'll use the wrong word
Yeah, that's right. It's political correctness gone mad that's to blame.
For fuck's sake......
