Oh, sweet Mary mother of God.
The fucking Creator's Update of Very Important Things that Definitely Will Impact My Life At All Ever has apparently resurrected my fucking flashing-command-shell-window issue.
Pretty much took two days of headdesking insanity to deal with it last time.
I am going to fucking kill a man.
e: Fuck you, Microsoft, for reinstating the motherfucking ass-chomping bullshit trigger that steals focus every hour on the hour to tell Daddy about the state of my god damned Office services. I don't even give a shit if you want the telemetry - I really don't! - but at least implement it in a way that isn't a piss on the grave of St. Ura Xelios, who theorized The Ideal Practices of User Experience Management in 300AD and was flayed by the Mongols for suggesting that perhaps letting subject kings send their taxes via caravan instead of by packing them one-by-one on wild dogs and letting them loose outside their conquered cities to hopefully find their way back to Karakorum might solve some related issues.
