Out of the Blue

After considerable procrastination I finally completed my Windows 10 "upgrade" yesterday. You may recall I had a second imperative beyond the end-of-life for Windows 7, as my Windows 7 refused to install a bunch of updates over the past several months. This was probably the reason I couldn't perform an inline upgrade to Win10, but that glitch was probably a blessing in disguise, as many of you pointed out a clean install was far preferable anyway. So I installed a new SSD yesterday and set to it. The hardest part of the whole process was convincing the installer to use the new SSD, as it had various complaints about its formatting and partitioning. But some research online showed me the hoops I needed to jump through in order to get this to work. After that it was quite easy. And between my browser syncing itself, being able to copy the data from my email, and simply pointing reinstalls of programs like Steam and Battle.net towards my existing libraries, I got things where I needed them to be in surprisingly short order.

This article provides great insight into why so many new outbreaks always seem to start in China.

The Asian Flu in 1956 killed between one and four million people worldwide. SARS in 2002 infected 8,098 and killed 774 in seventeen counties. H7N9 emerged ten years later to strike at least 1,223 people and kill four out of every ten of them. Now, the milder, yet more infectious COVID-19 has sickened more than 70,000 across the globe, resulting in 1,771 deaths.

China should take a long hard look at how it handles outbreaks that originate in its country.

They have. Lie, and say other countries started the problem. Call them racist if the facts point to it being China's fault. And threaten them with retaliation if they don't just go along in silence. And get the media to join in.
