  2. It might be possible to fix that with some silicone lube if you can locate the part that is squeaking.

  5. Which FitBit model? I hope it continues to sync and doesn't require re-syncing periodically. I was not pleased when Google bought FitBit.

    Day trip.

    Nice. And, it wasn't on fire.
  7. My bank was open today also. Local is the only way to go if you have a decent one.
  8. There is an unsecured network in your neighborhood?

    With Windows 10, I usually like to do a full image backup before installing any large updates, even when I have the updates set to delay for 30 days.

    I have seen reports that you cannot uninstall the new Edge once it is installed also.

    Not always, but with SSDs, you generally get no notice at all - they are just dead. You can check the S.M.A.R.T. stats on a magnetic drive periodically also, not that anyone ever does until they start hearing strange noises.

    Microsoft's latest update may inclide their new Chrome-engine version of Edge. There is a blocker toolkit / Registry entry to block installation. It can hijack your other browser's favorites and change your settings if you allow it to install. SSDs are fast, but unlike magnetic hard drives, they are unlikely to give you any warning signs before they fail, so you MUST have current backups if you are using one. When they fail, your OS and/or files are gone and you are not getting them back.
