    @RaTcHeT302 Thank you for sharing that information about Windows updates. I have not watched the video yet, however, I anticipate hearing Ross complain about the recent October 2018 build of Windows 10. I had installed this wretched update a few weeks ago and had my user settings wiped and some data loss, along with Windows doubling my RAM usage at idle (2.5gb-ish to 5gb-ish). I also saw the anti-malware process and system idle process start over-using my CPU, so the system turned into a complete slog. As if it wasn't bad enough already, as long as you were booted into the O/S, the system would start using more RAM as the day progressed... Completely idle: no-tasking whatsoever. I reverted back to build 1803 which worked flawlessly for me before the update. I am unsure why this occurred on my desktop as several other systems I manage were updated to build 1809 (the October 2018 build) with no problems whatsoever. At any rate, I hate this all-or-nothing mentality Micro$oft perpetuates with its update system. I understand security is important and forcing updates promotes cyber-security resilience, but taking away an easily accessed inhibit function for updating is infuriating. Not everyone with a personal computer is an irresponsible dolt. Removing inhibit options is just them treating every PC owner as children. Oh yeah by-the-way: there is an inhibit function in the advanced windows updates settings that allows you to disable updates for a certain number of days, and an option to furlough feature updates for as long as 90 days. Yeah... Those settings don't work. I tried to use both of them and was given a confirmation window that my settings were applied. On reboot Windows was downloading away and scheduling an installation restart. Even those running the professional edition are not exempt from oversight by almighty Microsoft. Spyware, bloatware, and restriction-ware. No personal freedom at all in Windows-- though I guess it never existed to begin with. I wish it was as simple as just switching to Linux, but that is a whole different discussion.

    Ross, You mentioned Elon Musk's self-driving (electric) cars, and that you think the problem of automobile transportation has gotten a bit too large for them to be effective (1:53:26). What do you think is the problem, and why is it too massive? I have my own doubts about the future of self-driving cars as the infrastructure change necessary to make it a viable option is rather high even if you were to reduce roadway traffic volume through use of busses and carpool solutions to reduce traffic density. It comes to a point where the population and sheer traffic density makes self-driving cars seem like an economically and logistically infeasible option as a private or public transportation solution, or even a mass-transit solution in general. This might not be the case in other countries, but in the USA this seems especially problematic. What do you think about automating other forms of transportation? While we might not get total automobile automation, I think we could easily see fully-automated air and seafaring transportation where human crews are eliminated altogether, or at least reduced to a system analyst role. I was wondering what your thoughts are on this. Thanks, Samuel

    Hey Ross, Glad to hear you're out of mold town. After seeing you go through that whole situation, it prompted some fear in me since I live in Florida where mold is common following hurricanes and severe thunderstorms. Have you considered collecting your used egg containers and pinning them to the walls for sound-dampening? I know some other YouTubers, like LifeOfBoris, use them as a solution to sound propagation and acoustic problems in his apartment. They are sort of like a poor-man's acoustic foam. Hope the new place is adequate for y'all. -Jamie

    I would honestly expect him to say something about the pods the martians came to Earth in-in "War of the Worlds." Good H.G.Wells moment there.
