Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I have that turned on as well, but Visual Studio updates do not come through Windows Update.
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson

VS updates work very differently than Windows updates, in terms of its insistence for getting them installed.
Is there really any reason you can't postpone the VS updates until you're not going to be using your system?
Most of the time I get update notifications for VS in the middle of the day. They're not preventing me from using VS. I just wait until quitting time (sometimes I let it wait for days, sometimes another update has already come out by the time I gave it the okay), then tell it to go ahead..and wait for the process to get far enough I know it's not going to be waiting for a confirmation prompt. By the time I come back next morning, everything's done.
