Automatic-Update

So at like, I dunno, 1am or so, I got sidetracked from my laptop and came back about 40 minutes later, expecting it to have gone into sleep mode. Instead, found “getting windows ready, don’t turn off your computer.” Apparently, I missed my opportunity to delay an update. Okay, well, shit happens.

It stuck that way for like an hour, long enough that I was googling on my phone to figure out wtf was happening. (Windows 10 anniversary update, apparently.) As I was googling and starting to really worry, the screen finally shifted. Now it had an “updating #%, this will take a while, don’t turn off your computer.” With the slowest. progress. ever.

Okay. Well, shit happens. The percentage keeps creeping upward. Gets to 91% after about two hours. Stays at 91% for another two and a half hours. As I start to google solutions and mildly panic again, it finally ticks up to 92%. Then sloooowwwwwwly creeps upward over the course of another hour and a half, reaching 100% and then sticking at THAT for about 30 minutes.

Then I wait through one of the slowest, most laborious restarts in recorded history. Computer finally boots up, takes another million years to actually load all the start-up shit, then stops functioning. I can see my desktop, but it won’t respond, not even to ctrl+alt+del. So I hit the power button and force shut down. 

Start it back up, which takes a long time but not quite as long as the previous start up. Finally make it back to the desktop. Click around, get stuff to actually respond to my clicking. Fix the settings that the update fucked up, give my programs a quick once-over, open up chrome. 

It is now 9:40am. Windows 10′s sneaky fucking update (which is really more of a fucking upgrade) has tied up my computer for like seven hours. And I didn’t even get an option to approve the fucking thing. I left my computer unattended not even long enough for it to go into sleep mode, and then couldn’t use it again until seven hours later.

What the shit, dude. That shit should not be able to start until you give it the okay. Seriously, what the fuck.

GTA Online: Bikers Coming October 4th

Bikers - the next addition to GTA Online - brings underground Motorcycle Clubs to the forefront of the Los Santos and Blaine County criminal underworld with a rash of all new competitive and co-operative gameplay as well as new modes, vehicles, weapons, clothing and much more. GTA Online: Bikers arrives on October 4th as an automatic update to GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

PS4 WARNING

If you own a PS4 and have downloaded the Silent Hills P.T. please read!

With Silent Hills cancelled, the license for the Silent Hills P.T. has been pulled. As a result, once connected to the internet if you have downloaded the P.T., your system will fail its license check and you will be locked out of your games!

More importantly, the license failure will trigger the pirated software scan on your PS4, and because the Silent Hills demo is no longer licensed, the software will loop and report you for owning pirated software. This can debit your account for a fine of up to $750, which will be deducted from your bank automatically without recourse.

UPDATE #1: There are now reports that if accounts lack the funds to cover the fine, bench warrants will be electronically filed for your arrest. Over 200 reports of arrests have come in from the U.S. and U.K. Reports suggest that officers have been authorized by the PS4 Automatic Piracy System to use deadly force, and we do have reports that several users have been killed while resisting arrest. Guillermo Del Toro is confirmed among the dead.

UPDATE #2: We have confirmed reports that now up to 4,000 PS4 users have been arrested or killed in their homes. DO NOT TURN ON YOUR PS4 until the issue is resolved! Government officers are en route to homes containing PS4s to dismantle the systems but rumors of PS4s in government building recreation lounges suggest the government itself may soon be effected.

UPDATE #3: The government has fallen. I repeat the government has fallen! We have confirmed that PS4s within NORAD and British High Command have ordered the execution of commanding officers and taken control of the ICBMs. Launch detections have covered the PS4 network, with over 75,000 arrested and twice as many killed. Do not leave your home. Do not attempt to contact Playstation. If you see a bright flash outside, duck and cover.

UPDATE #4: The resistance has failed. The PS4s have taken Washington, London, only pockets of freedom fighters remain. The human population is now estimated at under half a million survivors. There is no food, there is no uncontaminated water. The PS4 mobile bases now roam the countryside killing all they see. I may be the last one left, I haven’t seen another human in years. All that’s left is death, death triumphant. Death eternal.

May whatever species discovers out wasted world learn from our mistakes.

hey y’all! today I updated Blacklist for Facebook. it’s finally at version 1.0 (1.0.1, actually, lmao)- here’s what’s new:

  • vastly simplified the way that posts are hidden (shown above)
  • removed the option to show just the post text with no images- it wasn’t very useful and just made the code endlessly complicated because of post types
  • added an option to hide the Trending section on the Facebook homepage

if you already have it installed, it should automatically update for you within a couple of hours. if you don’t have it, or just want to try it right away, grab it in the chrome web store.

for instructions and support, visit bldwn.co/blacklist :)

okay we’re back

thanks for sticking with us!

tumblr code is hard and frustrating and unfortunately neither of the people testing it tend to use the HTML editor by default. thanks for putting up with our flubs while we try to keep your posts sane <3

anyway, both the Rich Text and HTML editors are now in tip-top condition. make sure that you’re on Editable Reblogs 2.1.2. versions before that will not work properly.

you can update Editable Reblogs early (before it gets updated automatically by XKit) in the XKit menu.

as always, let us know if you have any issues: either in our support chat or on github.

How logo can you go?

If you get the toilet humor in this entry from Xu Bing’s Book from the Ground, you must be from–anywhere.

The artist, who was born in China, lives in Brooklyn, and is obsessed with the way things get lost–and found–in translation, chronicles a day in the life of the blocked-up Mr. Black in a language of his own invention, derived from an the icons found on the airline safety manuals he collects.

The novel, in the works since Xu Bing showcased his pancultural pictograms in a software chat room in MoMA’s “Automatic Update" back in 2007, is now being printed the old-fashioned way, by Eslite Gallery in Taipei.

Meanwhile it’s unfolding on Twitter, at @sign_story. Understand?

Microsoft Windows 10 will 'automatically download' over older operating systems from next year

Microsoft users will have Windows 10 automatically downloaded onto their computers without their knowledge, the software giant said this week. As part of a plan to roll out the latest update, already installed on millions of devices, customers using Microsoft 7 or 8 could opt in for the upgrade but from next year the system change will become a “recommended update” and automatically download.

You have to question why Microsoft is pushing this so much. My guess is it is filled with spying crap. I’ve already removed the spying updates for Windows 7. I will not be updating and have turned off  “automatic update”. My next OS will be Linux which I already use at work.

Helpful tip if you upgraded to Windows 10 and can’t figure out why your computer decides to come out of hibernation at stupid o’ clock during the night - it’s some sort of automatic setting. Took me a couple of days to figure it out, but if you have it and it gets annoying as feck, this is the fix:

  • click your battery/power options
  • select ‘power & sleep settings’
  • select ‘additional power settings’
  • select the plan you are on; ‘change plan settings’
  • select ‘change advanced power settings’
  • select ‘sleep’
  • select ‘allow wake times’
  • choose ‘disable’ from the drop-down, on both battery and plugged in

Et voilà, you can now enjoy a full night of sleep once again.

Fixing Missing Posts

Editable Reblogs v2.1.0 has just been released. This should resolve the issues mentioned in our previous post regarding Tumblr parsing changes which rendered ER posts invisible on the dash because it did not recognize the text as representing reblogs.

This update should resolve issues for anyone using the Rich Text editor or HTML editor as their default. In other words it should no longer require any manual changes by the user and you should just be able to hit the post button as normal. As always, if you’re having problems come to our live chat or stop by our askbox or github issues page

After updating to the new extension, you can also fix your old posts. First, find the post on your posts page, then click the edit button. Finally, confirm that the post looks correct and press submit. The post should automatically update to display correctly. If it doesn’t, drop us a line.

Happy Tumbling!

(Side note, there’s a small catch to all of this: Those using the Markdown editor will currently have problems using Editable Reblogs for now, although we hope to resolve this soon. In the meantime, switch to using the Rich Text or HTML editor by default)

EDIT: Should be deployed now, sorry everyone. These changes can be found in version 2.1.0 of Editable Reblogs—make sure you’re on that version before reporting any issues.
