While Tom took care of a number of other things today, I dealt with upgrading to Windows 10. The upgrade process went very smoothly. And Windows 10 itself, with one minor problem I am having with the calendar, is fine.
I still do not understand, however, why software developers think that the thing to do when releasing a new operating system is to put it out there with relatively little in the way of instructions. There are a handful of basic video tutorials, which sound more like advertisements to be honest, telling one what wonderful things the new system will do without showing one exactly how to do those things. In order to do things, one must click seemingly at random around on the screen and hope that something will pop up that looks like it might be what one is seeking. Worse, things that in the earlier version were very simple often appear to be undoable in the new iteration. Fortunately enough of the old version is still there for one to be able to do these things, but they require one to leave the fancy new application and return to the exciting days of yesteryear over on the side. I mentioned how frustrating this can be in my feedback comments, but I expect it to have no impact on future releases.
Oh, the robot and I wound up doing the basement floors as well as the kitchen, dining and living room floors last night while Tom was at his meeting. By noon today, you could hardly tell they had been clean twelve hours before.
I saw a survey recently on "favorite household chores" -- an unlikely topic, if you ask me. At any rate, of the ten things listed (laundry, dishes, dusting, sweeping, etc.) mopping came in dead last by a long shot.
No surprise there.
