A few weeks ago I received this message: (I copied it so I’d know what to say to the nice tech people who save my bacon from time to time)
“January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security
updates or technical support to Windows 7.”
I really, really didn’t want to switch to Windows 10 in the middle of finishing a book, so I basically plugged my fingers into my ears and hummed the message away.
Last week I found I had difficulty getting to some blogs.
Then I had difficulty accessing websites to pay bills.
Today I couldn’t check my bank account.
But ten minutes ago I was unable to get into L.L.Bean.
And I have a $90 credit.
The tipping point has been reached.
My baby goes into the shop on Wednesday.
