Dear Bill Gates,
What's up with all of these Windows Updates? What if I don't have time to wait a full hour (at least) while they download, install, and then go through a surprise configuration when my laptop restarts. I thought once I got through the download and installation I'd be in the clear, but instead I had to wait another 20 minutes while your software configured things. It's not that I'm impatient--I don't tailgate, run red lights, or throw fits when the postal worker delivers my mail late--I just don't want to watch my hair turn gray and fall out while I wait for my laptop to become usable again. I never had this problem with Apple. Please streamline your updating process. If you use your own software, Bill, I'm sure you'll understand.

My name is Nicholas Emeigh, but everyone calls me Nick, and I prefer it. I'm usually called Nicholas when I'm in trouble. I'm from the Philadelphia area, work in business, and fancy myself as a freelance graphic designer, writer, and artist. I have a passion for art in all its forms including music, but I restrict my singing to the shower and the car for the good of society. If you'd like to know more, just send me an e-mail. I really appreciate you stopping by.
