In the U.S., if no where else, it is National PI Day.
Since I work on the OSISoft PI system, it has additional meaning.
So... enjoy the day; a co-worker brought in 3 pies (chocolate chip, cherry and pecan) for us to enjoy.
there's yet to be a word invented to encompass that degree of error
Really. Surely 'American' is that very word as only Americans, of all the peoples of the world, would call it a pizza pie, literally a pie pie! Either it's a pizza or it's a pie. There can indeed only be one!
Decrease the belief in God, and you increase the numbers of those who wish to play at being God by being “society’s supervisors,” who deny the existence of divine standards, but are very serious about imposing their own standards on society.-Neal A. Maxwell
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
I have a dual boot setup, Win 7 and Win 10, so when it tries to auto update Win 7, that sorta makes no sense at all. At the very least, the auto upgrade could try and detect if Win 10 already exists on that system.
How? When you're running W7 the W10 set up is not part of the system. Even if it was possible to read the W10 partition, the presence of W10 files does not necessarily mean that there is an activated and operational installation.
I can think of several ways to verify that a bootable Win 10 partition exists, and that's as a 3rd party developer. I am certain that the creators of the OS would have more native means to do the same.
Then I suggest that you code one up and sell it to Microsoft. I have to say that I'm at a loss to see any way that you can remotely probe a computer operating one OS and discover another with complete certainty that it is fully and properly installed and even less certain that if you can you should be allowed to. Wouldn't it be an ideal way to introduce virus or malware to the dormant system without any fear of detection?
Well, assume there are situations where the Win 10 installation is hidden for some reason, I get that. But if there is a boot entry that points to a windows directory containing a Win 10 installation, I'd expect them to not try and auto update Win 7. Also, any dual boot setup with Windows 10 seems to use a slightly newer (Win 10 specific) boot config. Can't be hard to check for that.
