Retcons and Reboots

Vampires have never been a very interesting monster group to me. Werewolves were cooler, zombies were grosser, and demons were just better. Vampires were boring and stale and fell out of fashion years ago. But Joshua Hale Fialkov and Andrea Sorrentino did a decent job making vampires interesting in I, Vampire. What really stands out […]

Interior Harmony

Microsoft today released two new Windows 10 previews for PCs, the first time it’s done so in 2019. The first build is from the 19H1 branch, which represents the Windows 10 update that will arrive in the first half of this year, and the second is from the 20H1 branch, which will arrive in the first half of 2020. Microsoft has released two new builds on the same day before, but never for two updates that are so far apart. The company is simply more comfortable developing multiple major Windows 10 updates at once. Windows 10 is being developed as a service, meaning it receives new features on a regular basis. Microsoft has released six major updates so far: November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, April 2018 Update, and October 2018 Update. Windows 10 build 18343 This 19H1 build includes the following general bug fixes and improvements: Fixed the Connected Standby issue that resulted in us blocking PCs with Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 and Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 processor model. If your PC was unable to take Build 18342 from earlier this week due to having one of these processor models, you should be able to take this flight. Fixed the issue that required an additional reboot when performing Reset this PC and selecting Keep my files on a device that has Reserved Storage enabled. In the 19H1 branch, this update bumps Windows 10 from to build 18342 (made available to testers on February 20) to build 18343. This build has eight known issues: Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD). Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly. Issues in the night light space. Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. In Windows Sandbox, if you try to navigate to the Narrator settings, Settings app crashes. Mouse pointer color might be incorrectly switched to white after signing out and signing back in. The Chinese version of multiple games are not working. If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings. Windows 10 build 18841 This build is for Windows Insiders who have chosen the Skip Ahead option, which only a small subset of Insiders can opt into. Normally, that would have meant 19H2 builds, since 19H1 hasn’t been released yet, but Microsoft has chosen to really skip ahead this time around. This 20H1 build includes the following general bug fixes and improvements: Windows Sandbox now supports configuration files! These files allow users to configure some aspects of the sandbox, such as vGPU, networking and shared folders. A blog post to explain this new feature is available here. Windows Sandbox now captures hotkeys in full screen. Fixed an issue where Windows Sandbox would not start on localized builds. Improved error reporting in Windows Sandbox. Now the error dialog includes the error code and a link to the Feedback Hub. Fixed an issue where Windows Sandbox was unexpectedly throwing an error due to referencing a deleted file under Windows.old. Fixed an issue where if you unpinned groups from Start, apps might end up thinking their tiles were still pinned. Fixed a recent issue where if you hid the search icon in the taskbar, a number of win32 apps would unexpectedly redraw when opening the Start menu. Fixed an issue resulting in the Search pane becoming truncated if launched after rotating the device orientation from horizontal to vertical. Fixed an issue where Settings would sometimes crash when opening “Advanced Display Settings” from Display Settings. Fixed an issue where it wasn’t possible to add a drive to the list of folders to exclude when setting up Enhanced Search in Settings. Fixed an issue where there were unexpected characters in the text under the Storage Sense listing for temporary files. Fixed an issue resulting in certain games no longer rendering UI updates (appearing visually stuck) after using Alt + Tab to quickly switch away and back to the game. Fixed an issue resulting in the taskbar blinking if an AC adapter was attached when the device had less than 20% battery. Fixed an issue resulting in the taskbar disappearing for a second when dismissing Start/Cortana/Search on a secondary monitor. Fixed an issue resulting in File Explorer potentially hanging when trying to rename, delete, or move MKV files in the recent flights. Fixed an issue that could cause Windows logon to forget the last logged on user, and instead would display the sign-in prompt for the default user from the list after dismissing the lock screen. Fixed an issue resulting in CDPUserSVC using an unexpectedly large amount of CPU for prolonged periods of time. Fixed an issue where the newly added popup window shadows might unexpectedly stop appearing after using your PC for some time. Fixed an issue impacting UWP apps resulting in entries under a “…” that launched other apps not working after the first time the secondary app was launched. Fixed an issue resulting in the left and right arrows on the touch keyboard inserting 4 and 6, respectively, in certain languages. Fixed an issue resulting in the game bar record and broadcast options unexpectedly not working in recent builds. Fixed an issue impacting Emoji Panel and Clipboard History reliability. Fixed an issue in Ease of Access’s Cursor and pointer settings, mouse pointer size and color are now retained on upgrade. There is a remaining issue with mouse pointer showing white color instead of the selected color after signing out and signing back in. When using the Magnifier with larger pointers, it pans smoothly as the pointers change shape. Fixed an issue where navigation mode on Orbit braille display could not be changed. Fixed an issue where Narrator paused unexpectedly when reading through a PDF. Fixed the issue that required an additional reboot when performing Reset this PC and selecting Keep my files on a device that has Reserved Storage enabled. In the 20H1 branch, this update bumps the Windows 10 build number for PCs from build 18836 (made available to testers on February 14) to build 18841. This build has eight known issues: Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD). Night light reliability continues to have issues. Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. In Windows Sandbox, if you try to navigate to the Narrator settings, Settings app crashes. Mouse pointer color might be incorrectly switched to white after signing out and signing back in. Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly. You may experience an increase in Start menu reliability issues on this build — a fix will be included in the next flight. If you install any of the recent builds from the Skip Ahead and switch to either the Fast ring or the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings. Don’t install either build on your production machine.

[dfm_iframe src=”https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/c/embed/d784fffb-c322-4922-99bb-98dbd8dbc05d?ptvads=block&playthrough=false” width=”100%” height=”500px” allowfullscreen=”yes” scrolling=”yes” /] By Anthony Faiola, Rachelle Krygier and Mariana Zuñiga | The Washington Post SAN CRISTOBAL, Venezuela — Venezuelan soldiers opened fire on a group of civilians attempting to keep open a segment of the southern border with Brazil for deliveries of humanitarian aid, causing two fatalities and multiple injuries, according to eyewitnesses and community leaders. The violence unfolded as the United States and the government of embattled President Nicolás Maduro defused at least one immediate source of tension — a looming deadline on Monday for all U.S. and Venezuelan diplomats to depart Caracas and Washington, respectively. The agreement bought both sides more time to negotiate a longer-term diplomatic presence after the rupture of official relations last month. [dfm_iframe src=”https://apps.mercurynews.com/newsletters-signup/?campaign=morning-report” width=”100%” height=”220px” allowfullscreen=”yes” scrolling=”yes” /] Later Friday, Juan Guaidó, the head of the Venezuelan opposition who has claimed the nation’s mantle of legitimate leadership and called Maduro an “usurper,” made a surprise appearance in the border city of Cucuta, Colombia, after a secretive trip by land from Venezuela’s capital, Caracas. His arrival to assist in the effort to cart humanitarian aid across the border smacked of an embarrassment for Maduro. In a joint news conference with the presidents of Colombia, Chile and Paraguay, Guaidó suggested the Venezuelan armed forces had facilitated his arrival across the border. “And I say thank you, and I thank the people of Venezuela, too, for their support,” he said. “Tomorrow, February 23, a month after assuming the presidency, all of Venezuela will be in the street to urge humanitarian aid to get in.” But Guaidó’s decision to go to Colombia came in defiance of a travel ban issued by Venezuela’s Supreme Court and risks his being arrested upon return or barred from re-entering — something that could significantly dampen the opposition’s momentum. Guaidó had left Caracas on Thursday with a caravan of 10 vans, and was repeatedly stopped at checkpoints, according to his spokesman, Edward Rodriguez. Asked if Guaidó would be returning to Venezuela, he said, “Of course he is.” “He is risking a lot,” said political analyst Dimitris Pantoulas. “Unless he’s sure the international reaction will have a big enough magnitude to leave Maduro with no option other than letting him back in. But the risk is too high and there’s no guarantee of what will happen. To me, it seems unnecessary.” At a news conference in New York, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza sounded an almost ominous note when he said, “Many Venezuelans don’t agree with Mr. Guaidó being in freedom. I hope justice will be done.” The assault at the Venezuela-Brazil border raised concerns of further violence as the opposition seeks on Saturday to defy Maduro’s blockade of humanitarian aid donated by nations including the United States and stored in neighboring countries. Though meant to relieve mounting hunger and disease in this collapsing socialist state, the move is also meant to test the military’s loyalty to Maduro by encouraging the armed forces to disobey the government’s direct order to keep the aid out. Friday’s fatalities did not come on the western border, where global attention was focused amid a star-studded benefit concert for Venezuela in Cucuta, where British billionaire Richard Branson hosted a crowd of more than 200,000 revelers. Instead, it happened in the desperately poor Amazonian savanna near Brazil. The victims: indigenous Venezuelans who have long fought for land rights and had backed the opposition. When the military fired, those present said, the opposition supporters were trying to block the military from carrying out Maduro’s orders to close the border with Brazil to bar humanitarian aid. “The majority of the people support the entrance of humanitarian aid, and we want to keep our border open,” said Carmen Elena Silva, 48, who was in the crowd of civilians when soldiers began firing assault rifles. “This is help, not war. … Every day more children die.” At 6:30 a.m. Friday, a military convoy approached a checkpoint set up by an indigenous community in the southern village of Kumarakapay, on the main artery linking Venezuela to Brazil. When the opposition supporters sought to block the military vehicles by standing in front of them, soldiers began firing assault rifles. At least two people were killed and a dozen wounded, at least three of them seriously. The dead were identified as Zoraida Rodriguez, 42, and Rolando Garcia, 51. At least 30 neighbors took to the streets after the shootings, kidnapping three soldiers. The Trump administration, which has demanded that Mauro step down, promptly denounced the shooting. “The United States condemns the killings, attacks, and the hundreds of arbitrary detentions that have taken place in Venezuela,” a State Department spokesman said. “We stand with the victims’ families in demanding justice and accountability.” (Vice President Mike Pence, who is a vocal Maduro critic, is scheduled to be in Colombia on Monday for a long-planned meeting of the Lima Group — a consortium of Latin American countries, plus Canada, that have called for Maduro’s ouster.) In tweets, Guaidó referred to the shooting as a “crime” that “will not go unpunished.” He added, “To soldiers: between today and tomorrow you will define how to be remembered. We know you are with the people, you have made it clear to us. Tomorrow you can demonstrate it.” Jorge Perez, a local councilman in Gran Sabana, the district in which the village is located, said he was present when the soldiers opened fire. “I ask the armed forces, is it constitutional for them to fire against unarmed indigenous people?” he said. “Is it constitutional to kill indigenous people?” Arreaza, the Venezuelan foreign minister, insisted that the bullets recovered in the wounded did not match the rounds used by the armed forces. “How easy it is to say that it was the soldiers,” he said. “Many of [the indigenous victims] were wounded by arrows.” [dfm_iframe src=”https://apps.mercurynews.com/newsletters-signup/?campaign=pm-report” width=”100%” height=”220px” allowfullscreen=”yes” scrolling=”yes” /] The activists belonged to the Pemones indigenous tribe and had joined the opposition effort to haul in aid donated by the United States and neighboring countries on Saturday. The aid is coming from nations — including the United States — that have demanded that Maduro step down. His government has ordered a blockade of the aid and dispatched the military to reinforce Venezuela’s borders. The incident appeared to be the most violent confrontation yet in a still-unfolding operation in which thousands of volunteers are seeking to reach bordering nations to haul in the aid. Opposition leaders feared more clashes on Saturday. Tensions between the military and the indigenous Pemones involved in the fatal exchange have been rising for years over the fast spread of illegal gold mining on their traditional lands. Opposition leaders convening in San Cristobal, the largest Venezuelan metropolis near the Colombian border, denounced the use of excessive force. “We have to condemn what happened today,” said Maria Gabriela Chávez, a coordinator for environmental issues in the National Assembly, the opposition-controlled legislature that Maduro stripped of its powers in 2017. “In the new Venezuela that is coming, we will assume this pain and experience as a lesson.” By Friday afternoon, another group of opposition officials arrived in San Cristobal after a 30-hour road trip from Caracas. They said security forces had aggressively sought to stop them en route. “They blocked us at a tunnel, threw tear gas bombs at us,” said Delsa Solórzano, an opposition official. “They wanted to seize our vehicles later. We had a difficult road but we are profoundly proud because we arrived here thanks to the people who were awaiting us in each town, in each city, and the people tried to help us pass the guard’s checkpoints. Multitudes received us everywhere — it was incredible.” Also on Friday, the United States and Venezuela averted — at least for the moment — a confrontation over how long their diplomats could remain in their respective posts. After severing diplomatic ties last month, the United States and Venezuela pulled out the majority of their personnel from each other’s capitals. Under a temporary agreement, a handful were set to remain for 30 days — a period set to run out on Monday. A person familiar with the talks who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the deadline has now been extended through mutual agreement, though the person would not say for how long. The two sides were still negotiating a longer-term deal to maintain special interest sections. In perhaps the most surreal development, the day brought dueling concerts on the Venezuelan-Colombian border. One — the Branson benefit that lured the likes of mega-celebrities Maluma and Luis Fonsi — drew massive crowds that organizers placed at over 200,000. Attendees wore shirts bearing Venezuelan protest slogans and broke out frequently in chants of “libertad” — liberty. “Tomorrow we will liberate our country,” shouted one young man holding a Venezuelan flag as hundreds around roared with excitement. Elliott Abrams, President Donald Trump’s special envoy to Venezuela, said during a Friday news conference in Cucuta, with concert music blaring in the background, that opposition supporters were in this for the long haul. “What do we do if the government of Maduro doesn’t fall tomorrow?” he said. “We continue.” On the other side of the border, Maduro’s government held a far more sparsely attended concert, “HandsOffVenezuela,” which was set to stretch into Saturday and which critics decried as a ruse meant to physically block access to aid. At the start of the concert, Diosdado Cabello, one of Maduro’s inner circle, said that “some people were alarmed about the concert, saying we’re imitating what the right wing is doing [on the other side of the border]. But no. They’re wrong. We are dedicated to bringing joy to Venezuela.” In San Cristobal, opposition lawmakers outlined plans for an operation Saturday meant to receive aid shipments that have piled up across the Colombian border in Cucuta. Franklyn Duarte, an opposition official, announced four points of departure starting at 3 a.m. He said volunteers would be bused to the four international bridges that connect bordering cities to Cucuta, to help the aid come in. Volunteers who are planning to stay in San Cristobal, he said, would march toward the city’s military barracks holding flags. “Unlike protests in the past, this time the people will stay in the street until containers of humanitarian aid come in,” he said. The governor of the state of Tachira, Laidy Gómez, called on both sides to avoid violence. [dfm_iframe src=”http://apps.mercurynews.com/newsletters-signup/?campaign=breaking-mn” width=”100%” height=”220px” allowfullscreen=”yes” scrolling=”yes” /] “To violence, we have to respond with peace,” she said, “and to tell the violent that we, the good ones, are better than that, that we do not want a war.” The Maduro government, however, was reinforcing its efforts to stop the aid from coming in. In a statement, Colombian authorities said that shipping containers — overturned by the government earlier this month to block the Tienditas bridge connecting Venezuela and Colombia — were welded in place overnight. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]”Last night, while Cucuta and the world were preparing to raise their voices in unison for the Freedom of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship welded the containers to the structure of the Unity Bridge, as if it were a metaphor for the dictator clinging to power,” Colombian migration authorities said in a statement. The Washington Post’s Carol Morello in Washington and Dylan Baddour in Cúcuta contributed to this report.
