I’ve been dealing with some wireless problems and then I got hit with major software updates for my virus software (three machines), Firefox on four machines, and then IOS 9.0 on the iPAD.

I got most of that done, when the iPad decided I needed 9.0.1. OK, things get missed with major upgrades and require patches. I was not so sanguine when after finishing 9.0.1 I was told to update 9.0.2. Come on guys, this is really annoying. 😡
