Back once again, with the ill behavior (fade and return)
To my surprise, my bike turbo setup and its related technology all still worked after its extended period without use. It restarted the exact session and recognised all the components.
Then, the next day, the bicycle monitoring computer requested a Windows 10 update. It wasn't a stroppy one where it just did it.
Instead it issued me with an ultimatum. Do it now or do it overnight. It even asked me what time, but then assiduously refused to provide any of the time prompts.
The next day I noticed a completely new wallpaper on the screen of that computer. Some sort of brownish building interior. I'll have to search around to reinstate my preferred one. Either that or something bicycle-related like a snapshot from my recent whizz around Montebello, Quebec.
Then I login to the machine and try the bicycle turbo wireless link. No longer working, of course. Unplug and replug things. Reboot everything. Still nothing.
I decide I'd rather take a bike out for a spin instead of faffing around with this time-sink activity.
Later that evening I investigate further. A quick email to someone in Nevada.
Yes, an undisclosed amendment to some of the software.
I've abandoned that way of linking things, adopted a plan B and am back in the game.
