    Another big rollout for Microsoft on Patch Tuesday this week with Microsoft releasing 16 updates across the board, nine of them deemed critical. It’s looking like a busy summer for systems administrators.

    When is it not a busy summer?

    It's not the updates that bother me, it's the continuing madness of users clicking on every link, attachment, and forwarded emails with "jokes/chain letters/conspiracies" they can get their hands on. Exchange hosted services work well for killing spam, but comeon people.

    Users on facebook somehow contracting malware - you gotta love it. Maybe worse than that - people spend considerable time on these sites instead of doing actual work. Here comes the content filter...

    Ever since getting an SSD for my boot drive these large updates no longer are a bother to me.

    I quite enjoy them actually.

    I'm not worried about ms I'm worried about Oracle and java with their 21 patches every few days. Ms are thanking that judge like hell now for ordering them to remove the java vm from their OS.
