I just saw an article where Microsoft's next Windows 10 build provides much more control over OS updates and reboots.

The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.

Or am I just better off not knowing as it will be a massive time sink.
