    It’s nearly the end of the month and it’s time to recap and review our computer systems for the month. Updates have been disruptive this month to say

      Yes, it has been a stressful start to the year, but thankfully all my home/family/silver surfer friends’ running various versions of Windows with/without Office have survived mainly unscathed and I thank you and your colleagues for all your efforts in offering guidance and support.

      I think a comment/update on the blog could be a useful addition to the information provided as I do occasionally forget to check the Master Update page for updates as regularly as might seem necessary given Microsoft’s penchant for messing us all around with untested(?)/poorly thought out updates etc.

      Keep up the great work,

      I would like to see a Tweet when you update the Master Patch listing.

      Thank you.

        I also would like to see a Tweet when you update the Master Patch listing.

        Thank you.

      Yes, please tweet when you update the list. I wish we could say no to not-optional, but undesirable updates. I wish we could go ahead and install safe updates while waiting word for others. (Windowz 10)
      Thank you for all your research to help us.

      Yes, a note in the blog would be quite helpful. I do go and look at the patch list when I see something appear that is puzzling on my own machines, but an update notice might save a step or two. I’m one that has feet in both home and business machines, so the differences between them that you highlight are also quite helpful. Thanks!

      Let me know when PKCano’s list is updated.  January has not been a stressful month for me, update-wise.  It was somewhat stressful when I couldn’t install one update, but that was the computer’s fault, not the update.  The updates, once installed, gave me no trouble at all.

      What was somewhat stressful was when my web-based Outlook account got hacked, because of my stupidity, but that is another story. (The problem was neutralized).

      A note on the blog, since I don’t use Twitter.

      I hope February is an improvement, as we have held off on patching since November (via WSUS). Because our workers are so reliant on VPN, it just wasn’t worth the likely damage and screams of calls from staff.

      No matter where you go, there you are.

      Question for those that follow the twitter account and the blog? Would you want me to post a new post when I update the Master Patch Listing?

      Susan, I hardly ever check Twitter (I personally don’t have much use for it).  But still, it would be great if you could add a new blog post whenever you update the Master Patch List.  I’ll get an “alert” in Outlook when you do that; since I’ve added AskWoody to my Outlook RSS feeds.

      To make it even easier for anyone customizing their Outlook alerts, it would be helpful if you could use a consistent title for those blog posts — e.g., “Master Patch List Update:” — followed by whatever additional description or details you might want to add.  The Outlook alert could be triggered and/or filtered by that consistent initial phrase in your blog post title.
