I think I would agree with your colleague... in a way. But I would have to translate the statement to it's real meaning first...
90% is a pretty common go-to number when you are trying to say "a lot of" in percentage form. Give it a try and run a few fake conversations through your mind. If you want to say a lot, you will probably pick 90% (or maybe 99% if you REALLY want to emphasis a lot). So we easily translate that to "a lot".
Then take "the internet", in general conversation people are not really referring to the exact definition of the internet in terms of "a global system of interconnected computer networks" (wiki steal). Most the time we just mean "the stuff we do online". For example, reading news, or socialising in forums, etc. But it varies from person to person. One person might be a Facebook fanatic, another only reads articles on trusted news sites. So "the internet" can mean different things to different people.
So I think what is really being said is:
A lot of the stuff I see on the internet is wrong
...and to that I would have to agree. There is so much crap that people make up and post as facts, and people just believe it. Social media has brought us a world where people can say whatever they want, and not have to provide proof that it is real. It doesn't matter that 10% (a few) of people call them out on it, because the 90% (a lot) of people that believe it is a pretty good result.
...between today's smaller "SUV"s and hatchbacks? for sure the latter certainly came with much better music
Also worth ranting:
1. how do today's SUV's actually do the "S"?
-- Most cant unless you want to count carrying a football or frisbie in the hatch.
2. isn't every vehicle effectively able to do "U"?
-- (the Top Gear...vomit, sorry... Grand Tour cast proved that many times.)
3. and why not?[^]
I haven't checked this recently, but years ago, when I was searching for something in MSDN, the search engine never returned anything relevant to my question. Switch to Google, ask the same question, and it would instantly return the correct document in MSDN! Is this still the case, or have they learned how to perform a search since then?
I like to keep my systems drive neat and uncluttered, partly because I take an image of the drive from time to time as a backup. (I don't use System Restore.) In order to achieve this:
1. I keep my data on a separate internal drive (D:\).
2. I redirect temporary files to a folder on the data drive.
3. I don't use System Restore. It is not 100% reliable and the shadow copies take too much space.
4. Hibernation is turned off. In my case it is unnecessary and takes up too much disk space.
5. I run Ccleaner on a daily basis to get rid of cookies and other junk left behind by Edge.
6. I run Disk Cleanup regularly on the systems drive.
7. Whenever there is an update on Windows, I get rid of the files from the previous version on the systems drive.
I like to do a new clean install of Windows and all apps about once a year. I did one three days ago. I cleaned the systems disk, repartitioned it and installed Windows 10 version 1909 - the same version that was running just before the clean install. I installed the exact same applications that I had running previously. When all was done and everything restored to the same state as previously, the systems drive had 24 GB more free space than it did before the clean install.
I have noticed before that disk space is slowly eroded over time for no apparent reason. What is eating the free disk space?
Leprechauns. Since Millennials never look up from their mobiles, no-one is chasing rainbows to get their pots of gold - so they have been retrained as byte eaters. Individually they don't eat much, but as the breed inside your SSD the group consumes more and more. Think yourself lucky you don't have Banshees - they eat used space as well as free.
