Look, I lead a fairly scheduled life.  I wake up every weekday morning at 6AM (if I'm lucky) to get ready for work.  I go to work.  I get home almost every day by 6PM.  I fiddle fart on the computer here and there most evenings, an hour or more depending on if my wife is working that day or not (12 hour shifts means she gets home much later than I do).  At no point in the history of this fucking computer having Windows 10 on it have I been on the computer between the hours of say 1AM to 5AM.  Ever.  Why the fuck do you think I want to update at 6PM?  If you did it during the day I could forgive you since I'm only on in the daytime on the weekends.  But no, your AI scheduling fuckstick says 6PM is the time it will be least likely to upset my schedule.  Are you paying any goddamn attention at all?  Who wrote this motherfucker?  Did they use COBOL?  Are they saving active times in a fixed width text file somewhere and forgot how to parse the damn thing?


Also, don't present me with a link to pick a different time if you're just going to lock down the screen that lets me set a time.  Don't nag me every hour on the hour.  If I go fix a sandwich and come back to you rebooting for updates it makes me want to go back to Linux.

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

eBay does the same thing . . .I order a car part and suddenly eBay starts bombarding me with parts for all sorts of cars.

Maybe they're assuming that you're building a car from scratch, and want some variety.

Either way this sounds like another point against user-targeted advertisement. Basing ads on the content of the site and page should be good enough.

In home rain forests are just a fad, I wouldn't go too heavily into it.

OMG, I had to force myself to stop looking at that.  It was hard to look away.

I don't have experience with this particular programming language, but "file" appears to be an undefined variable.

Presumably file, prev and curr are global variables.

The only thing this picture is missing is a typecast, so I can make a joke about "casting a hex".
