    Finished. of the 15 Update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB3012199) failed the first time thru but the other 14 went without a hitch. After the reboot KB3012199 took too and didn't need a reboot. This year, where many people had problems with patches, I didn't have any with windows 7 or 8.1... just when I first installed 8.1 and 8.1 update, with all the updates and patches, would only install/download in stages, which is understandable, because some updates need others first; being they're built on the earlier ones.
    How was everybody else's patch tuesday year?

    Had a few hiccups this year with patch tuesday! But the last few patch tuesday went without a hitch! Today's seem to be going a little slow but that is understandable with everyone downloading updates!
