On one hand, upgrading Rimiru’s OS to Windows 11 was fairly painless and seems to pass the core “Does my shit work” test. Certainly not the worst experience for upgrading a Microsoft OS ever to be had.

On the other hand, I can’t help but think a big margin of how much you love or hate the visual changes probably has to do with how tied to Windows 9x / NT you are versus having spent time off in the land of other operating systems. In a word, W11’s visual changes remind me of Android and iOS. Alternatively you might just be pissed off that people moved your buttons around, again.

Considering that I actually prefer these kind of OS over the traditional UI, I probably appreciate the fresh coat of paint to things like the Settings app more than most. But hey, I was greatly thrilled by the evolution of the W10 settings app over ye old Control Panel. So obviously I’m more in favor of modernization of the UI than hanging onto the 1990s.

On one hand preparing everything for the crockpot this morning was a great success. Combing the goods with some grilled chicken, cheese, and noodles was both filling and delicious.

However I remain concerned that the cosmos may die from the bean farts. It’s a legitimate concern.

Seems like it’s been a fairly productive and filling day off.

Spent part of the day slurping coffee and playing Project Wingman between feeding and walking the dogs. Including the mission “Cold War”, where you’ve basically got a Star Destroyer’s worth of air craft duking it out for air superiority. Made up a batch of blended food for Willow’s stockpile.

Managed to get started on the cleaning, along with prepping foods. Put beans on soak, chopped green onions, broccoli, and ham for dinner tomorrow. Scheduled a reminder to put the beans in the crockpot in the morning. Even made a few ham, cheese, lettuce, and horseradish wraps to stock up on snackables.

Plus making mac / cheese for dinner made a perfect way to use up some leftovers. A little of the onions and broccoli, leftover taco meat, etc. Yum.

Is it just me or do my thoughts often revolve around food? Hehehe.
