Ice Cube DNA

Seven Day. Decidedly on the upper edge of a phase transition in BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! According to the temperature sensor it was 49 degF but my Southron body is still summer (?) adapted and was clothed in three outer layers. And I was decidedly chilled. Still chilled in fact even five minutes after returning to Castellum SCP. 

But it was a good walk. If a bit boring. The edge of BRRRRRRRRR! kept me from thinking much and besides I have to reassay outside in half an hour to obtain breakfast supplies for FD SCP. 

So I will limit myself this blot to one article [Link] entitled “Windows 10 market share fell in September”. This was actually a quite informative article even for the Register which is much more informative than Amerikan news rags. Hard to admit but Amerikan journalism has shaded over from Yellow to Orange. Which now gives us a handy rhyme of Journalism with Orange. Why? Because they are. 

Also why I blew away the American news app on my cellular telephone and replaced it with a British one. 

Anyway, it seems that the fraction of measured/sampled PCs running WX actually went down last month. Not by much. Depends on the measuring agent for one thing. But at most about 4E-3. So no disaster for MegaHard quite yet. But they do appear to be in deepening kimshe. 

The primary informative part of the article is that WVII is still the primary instantiation of Winders at somewhere between 0.35 and 0.55. The combination does not bode well for MegaHard. The ship of Bill has struck an ice cube, size yet to be determined.

The variation has to do with uncertainties and measurement assumptions. Like that every box hits their server harvesting. And their data is accurately representative. But it’s the only game in town. So we live with it.

Of course the big thing is slablets, most running Googleoid. Which pretends to be Linux but isn’t. It’s evil linux at best and every thing I learn about it makes it worse. But again, only a few choices and the other are worse. Like the Amerikan presidential candidates.

One of my colleagues made a joke this week. He claimed that Bogs were Junk DNA in Action. Not very accurate but definitely appealing. It would explain a whole bunch. 

But the presidental candidates go far beyond Boggery and Junk DNA. They go to levels that make pond scum seem like higher life forms. And like Android, we’re gonna be stuck with one of them.
