I was cruising anagram-solver.net, feeling a bit bored, and when I saw the two anagrams for tedious I couldn't resist.
I almost left off "So dull", but figured that would be beyond the CCC conventions.
I don't recall seeing very many double anagrams in the wild, but I have encountered a couple.
Software rusts. Simon Stephenson, ca 1994. So does this signature. me, 2012
To follow Kent's post, I couldn't believe it when the Visual Studio upgrade installer downloaded over a GB, after the measly 1.?? Mb front-end installer took over. Made me never want to upgrade again. And it is now saying there is a new version available...
I don't have the full package and got almost 3 Gb in the last 2017 update I did, I don't want to imagine what a fully installed VS2019 would get
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.
Back with 2017, I regularly let it update the full set of files so I'd have a folder containing anything and everything I might want to install, ready to go and already up to date.
The entire folder weighted in at 40+ GB. It would regularly pull down 30+ GB worth of updates at a time. With my 5mbps connection, that was a full day's worth of downloads, so I reserved those for weekends.
I've stopped doing that and nowadays only let VS update what it thinks I need based on what I have installed.
American Megatrends BIOS had a GUI and PS/2 mouse support back in 1996, when a 8 MB RAM PC was still common.
Consider that a car ECU with limited functionalities and a single communication system requires about 2-3 MB of optimized binary and it does not have to support multiple client OS in thousands of possible hardware configurations.

Yes, my favorite make is Dell as well. I have never regretted buying Dell. And I used to buy not only for my family, but for the company where I worked before I retired as well. Not a single failure after a dozen or more purchases over 20 years.
I have a Dell laptop that gets BIOS updates maybe every few months. It'll be 4 years old soon, and it took the first BIOS update a while to show up. But now they appear regularly, and no problem so far.
Agree. Just shut down a 10 year old server that had been running 24/7. Replaced one hard drive that was still covered under warranty (shipped us a new one overnight). Another one is 5 years old and also running 24/7 with 3 VM's, one a DC. I think we had one desktop fail with bad motherboard, old enough they didn't stock that m'board anymore (over 5 years old).
I am on my 4th Precision workstation going way back.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
