work whinge of the day

Hi Symantec Software Engineer,

I believe you're responsibile for the symantec liveupdate application.
I'd like to punch you in the face for having a "your PC needs a
reboot" popup with only an OK button. Then I'd like to stamp on your
throat for having the little X in the top right of the window still
continue with the reboot.

Thankfully, since this is a server OS after all, windows alerted me to
the fact that other users were logged into the host and gave me the
option of cancelling the reboot which you'd forced on me. How very
lucky that I'd logged in direct to the console for another reason.
