A Nearly Patch-less Tuesday

Tomorrow, many (but not enough, in my opinion) will take the day off in honor of Veterans Day. The only trouble for IT is tomorrow is also Patch Tuesday. Luckily, only two patches are expected tomorrow. And only one of these patches, to fix a remote code execution in Office and Windows, is deemed critical.

Are you taking off Veterans Days, and if so, why? Your opinions and beliefs welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
