Still Getting Distributed Denial Of Service (DDoS) Attacks

It's honestly not surprising that I would get hit with denial of service attacks after calling out spammers and other companies for poor behavior. The bigger shock wouldn't be getting this sort of attention, because most people double down on their dickery when you call them on it.

About the only reason I host my blog on Google's Blogger is that they can handle any amount of traffic. The day one of my posts goes viral, I'll get the advertising from the billion page views. Also, the day my blog gets attacked for making someone angry on the Internet, they'll really be attacking Google.

Good luck with that. Also, Google shows the attacks as page views, and they are attacking more than one, so thanks for making my blogs more popular!

Video Hitching After Upgrade To Windows 10

I've done some searching on the Google-machine and it looks like I am not the only one having problems with my videos hitching and stuttering after my computer. My mouse was stuttering too, after the upgrade, but I moved it to a different USB port and haven't had the problem.

But I think I have it at least narrowed down. Windows has a decent design, but it has an Achilles' heel. Only a kernel mode driver can block hardware like a mouse. It looks to me like some common driver is having issues after the upgrade. My guess is something to do with USB, but that's just a guess.

Either way, it's annoying. I like Windows 10 overall, but every time technology advances, it seems like we take a step backwards, too.

Someday there will be a stealth update where the problem will just go away. Maybe they'll make some oblique reference to the problem. Hopefully it's soon, because a $50 phone these days can watch video without hitching.
