In no-one's defense...I've never closed the lid of a laptop without first telling it to hibernate or shut down completely. I'm old enough to remember owning a couple of machines with rather bad BIOS-controlled power management (when it was still a new thing and nobody ever got it right), so I never really grew out of the paranoia learned from those lessons. To this day, whenever I see someone just close the lid without doing anything first, I can't help but cringe a little.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
It seems that the rollback did not include one of the databases, and now, we have to deal with taking the site offline, restoring last night's backup, and somehow determining what records are new in every table of the database in question (so far, over 2400 records - in just one of the tables).

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.
doctors office should be open tomorrow...
for authenticity I suggest beer and the hottest curry you can keep down for at least a few hours. (something that repeats or keep some of the curry for breakfast to increase odds to get 2 days.)
Type "Chrome download Windows 10" and press enter.
"Are you sure you want to download Chrome? Edge is the recommended browser and its already installed!"
"Please don't go ... I'm really lonely ... you're the only person I've talked to all day ... please, visit Bing as well. It's been days since he saw a user..."
Open. Install. Unpin Edge and close.

I have been using Firefox for years, but for about two years now it started failing on a few web pages. The number increased slowly, either a complete failure to display anything, or some elements on the page not completing loading, or completing but not displaying.
So what do I do? I've kept IE as a last resort. It cannot remember a single case where it had to give up on all those pages where FF fails.
No, I will not switch to Chrome. I want FF to handle all those web pages I visit regularly. So I stick to IE as an emergency solution. It works.
Imagine if you will, a dark lit night in a place far far away.
Suddenly you round a corner and the neon lights of a district where passion is served blind you..
A young lady approaches and utters the words that will stick in your mind forever..."Me love you long time GI"
and suddenly you've entered the twilight zone.

my experience with edge is it loves to make itself the default PDF viewer even when told not to.
helped a few people change to some other PDF viewer because edge can't open or print or other things. OK, install another, sumatra (lite), even Adobe (a user with very complicated govt PDF's) etc,
and yes of course I set the default to the new viewer. Test it, open files, email attachments..
couple of days to week or two later, "can you help me again, I can't open this PDF."
guess what the default PDF viewer is. (and sometimes it even claims the PDF is corrupt)?
I am supporting legacy VB6 programs. I am trying to push the VB6 development IDE up to Windows10 OS, for security reasons. I have managed to register and get working all of the different 3rd party OCX controls that my programs use, except for the ComponentOne VSFlexGrid, which I use extensively in my desktop program.
I have gotten it registered, but when I attempt to run it asks for a license code (which I already have on my XP machine, having bought the product once). They want me to purchase an entire new suite of OCX controls (at a cost of $1200.00 to $1500.00).
So I am looking for a reasonably priced Data Grid OCX control. Any Recommendations?
Yes, I know I should have done this a long time ago, Mea Culpa, etc.
That's why I am Slow Eddie...
