Yep, if we open our eyes in the morning, it's a blessing!

Doing well. Looking forward to the holidays for our family. I feel in
good health, and everyone in our family appears to be also, and we
weren't near any of the fires, so I have nothing to complain about.

Except of course the Java Updater failing all the time...

But I did resolve an issue with the Windows Monthly Rollups on a lot of
Win7 machines failing since August. I found the problem was an update
(KB3177467) that didn't get installed on a lot of machines over a YEAR
ago causes the Rollups to fail! Go figure.  I patched all the machines
that I knew were failing and each one of them completed the Rollup this
month. I don't pay too much attention if a Rollup fails once in a while,
but when it had occurred on so many machines, I realized it wasn't
normal. It had been bothering me after September's also failed, and
again last month, so I set out to figure it out!

Take care,
Terry

That "year ago" problem may have effected my Lappy as well! For quite a
while, I didn't get any monthly update, so I had started to think MS had
stopped supporting Win 7. Then, earlier this year, I was real surprised
when, one evening, as I was shutting down, I got the "Windows is
updating. Do not switch off." screen, again

Computers!! Bah!! Humbug!!

MS was "supposed" to set the priority as Important on that missing
update, as it wasn't checked by default, but clearly it didn't change.
But then to just have Monthly Rollups fail because it wasn't present?
Big goof on MS's part.

Wacko!! This afternoon I got a notice that a Java update (Java 8 update
211) and it's all apparently gone swingingly!!

And after I've re-started my computer, tomorrow,I'll check the Java test
page, https://java.com/en/download/installed8.jsp, to see if it's
telling me I'm all O.K.!

My usual offline-updating manner so far has been brutally stopped by
Oracle from now on as long as I do not submit to some registration
ritual which I am not willing to do.
Fortunately the internal auto-update function in the JRE programme still
works without any restrictions.

I ran into that too at
www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html .
Fortunately you can still manually download the latest JRE without
having to register by going to www.java.com and clicking "Java Download".

I found that updating Java is most successful if I (1) manually download
the full, offline installer -- not the stub, online installer -- from
<http://www.java.com/en/>, (2) delete the old version, (3) reboot, (4)
disconnect from the Internet, and (5) execute the installer.

President Trump claimed that the Mueller report vindicated him.
Why then is his administration trying to prevent Congress from
seeing the full, unredacted report?

This is actually what I have done for years on end so far.
But it isn't possible any longer:
"Important Oracle Java License Update
The Oracle Java License has changed for releases starting April 16,
2019." - That's the new style.
And the explanation: "We have detected you are using Firefox which might
be unable to use the Java plugin from this browser. Starting with
Firefox Version 52 (scheduled for March 2017), Firefox has removed
support for the standard way in which browsers support plugins."

O.K., when I booted today, I went to the Java test page and the center
of the page was blank .... no telling me I had installed 1.8_211
correctly .... or even incorrectly! ;-(

So I tried a manual download and, as usual, I didn't get to select where
'I' had selected to save the file, but a Windows search found me a
jre1.8.0_211 directory so I checked there and I had seven files ...
nothing over 147kB long, certainly nothing to consume the advertise
66.37MB download, so I guess I'm not getting the full download.

And looking at the Help page,
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/jre-8-readme-2095710.html 
didn't provide anything useful!!
