Phew that's a relief. I updated my main computer to Windows 11 this afternoon and when I'd finished half the f***ing internet was down. I was about to generate an alibi !!!
I've got 4 PCs on the go but three are quite old and won't update to 11 because there's no TPM module on the motherboards. The one I'm using here is on Windows 11 but it was a pre-release beta version which didn't demand TPM. The release version does.
If you get the message that your PC cannot update to Windows 11 and it's less than say 5 years old, it may well be that it has a TMP chip on the motherboard but it usually comes disabled out of the shop. You have to go into BIOS and enable it (if it's there, if not, you're screwed.)
This site might help:

Of course you don't have to upgrade to Windows 11. With a change of this scale, Microsoft are going to have to support Windows 10 for years to come.

Don't know enough about enough to know if this is true (can't imagine it is), but...View attachment 11371

What am I going to do if it's gone completely? Forever n ever n ever?!
I don't do twatter, or post selfies on that other one, nor do I have whattsapp on me phone, it's too old, Noah used an identical one on the ark! (not the forums very own Noah)

I have a few little natters going on there, it helps keep me sane (!) Who am I going to talk to now?
Youngest is either asleep, at work, stuffing his face, round his brothers or in the pub.

A friend who works in IT described it as thus: "someone has done the equivalent of removing all the road signs & placenames from maps so that you can't find where you're going, & then proceeded to rip the road up as well so you can't even drive there if you knew where to go."
Yeah pretty much.

And they also blocked all the maintenance sideroads so nobody can get in and out the roads back

(Because the people trying to fix the problem can’t get into the building due to their badges not working on the security system that is suffering from the same outage)

Have to laugh at the fact that FB employees reportedly can't get into their building because all of the locks are electronic and no one has a basic metal key.

Twitter has been pretty great tonight tbf.

If WhatsApp isn't back up fairly swiftly then I could end up losing work because of it.

However, in the very short term, the lack of it stops Mrs p continuously reminding me of jobs she wants me to do when one or other of us is away from home 🙂
