Today, I'm going to talk about breakfast.
Starting with a balanced breakfast every morning is very important indeed.
Look at the photo below.
You can see a croissant, a cup of coffee and a kiwi.

Today, I'm going to present another recipe.

First and foremost, I'm going to answer humbert who wanted to know if I was "buying food at the market and cooking it, or  buying pre-cooked food and warming it up in the microwave, as he mostly does".
Sometimes I use canned food. For example you can find ready to eat gratins dauphinois, with some peeled ans sliced potatoes. But they are not as good as a home-cooked meal. That's why I prefer to cook.
What's more, many canned foods contain high amounts of sodium to mask any change in taste that comes with age and the heating process, and it's unhealthy.

Look at the photos below.
You can see fresh radishes, 2 potatoes and a black boudin. The potatoes and the boudin were cooked in the oven. The potatoes seem but the boudin exploded during cooking.







That looks a lot like the blood sausages they have here. Not even sure what they call them. Looks like something tasty though.

Today, a new movie, titled What lies below and released in December 2020 is available on the forum.


Story: Liberty, a socially awkward 16-year-old, returns from two months at camp to a blindsided introduction of her
Mother’s fiancé, John Smith, whose charm, intelligence, and beauty paint the picture of a man too perfect to be human.

I hope humbert, aa1234779 and Vasudev will appreciate this movie.

I've seen Cypher, Jumanji, City of Joy. I haven't watched The visitors.
You must be missing something then.

No issue updating from 2004 to 20h2. :) Took 10 seconds or something, it was as fast as a normal restart basically.

I'm currently running 1909. Maybe that's what's causing the problem. I tried mounting Scarface's ISO and running setup. The installation halted even before it did anything. Doing it from Windows Update didn't work either. It wants me to remove VirtualBox because it's "incompatible with Windows 10". This despite the fact that VirtualBox runs great on my system.

Windows is the only OS that has these problems. Anything else updates seamlessly.
I felt 20H2 wasn't polished like 1909.
For Vbox issues simply uninstall VirtualBox Host adpater Ethernet or something. It usually causes slow internet or buggy wifi.
Once upgrade is done, navigate to C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\drivers and install the inf and everything should work.

All you need to uninstall is the VirtualBox (in my case) program itself? The settings and virtual machine files don't need to be removed? I'm thinking Windows might detect them and stop the installation.
Should only be the software itself, the files should be separate. not sure how Virtualbox uninstallation works. VMWare you can just backup the config and "vmware vms" and then uninstall vmware. Lots of software allow config and files to be saved when doing an uninstall.

I googled the Windows upgrade tool and I'm confused. There are programs for downloading the ISO and some others that I'm not sure what they do. Given the fact that 20H2 is available for download through Windows update on my system, don't know if it's a good idea to even use them. When you upgraded using the upgrade tool, did you have to take down VMware?
Uh, I just remember downloading tool. Pressing "upgrade now" then it downloaded update, and it restarted a few times, then it started up like normal. Except for the time it didnt work, where I had to use the commandline from a usb-stick to repair some stuff. Dont remember specifics.

When doing previous upgrades, 16** 17** 18** i had to temporarily uninstall virtual machine engines(vmware) and also bitlocker. It just kept bricking my pc without any explanation if i didnt do it. Is it not an option to uninstall virtualbox, keep config files and virtual machines and reinstall after os update?

I also had to use the windows 10 upgrade tool from microsofts homepage for previous updates, as with 20h2 it worked by its own. It just said it was incompatible and would take a while for it to become available for my pc. Then one day I noticed that my windows updates werent running, tried manually updating, and woops new feature update added.

I've had really bad experiences upgrading from one linux distro version to another, like ubuntu 14 -> 15/16, debian 7->8 etc.
But mostly been on debian based, so cant say all too much.
